Nice to meet you!

Thank you for your interest in my work. My name is Effi, I'm the polarwiesel.
The term "polarwiesel" [poˈlaːɐ̯ ˈviːzl̩] is German for "polar weasle". That sounds like quite a nice animal, but it doesn't actually exist. And that’s pretty similar to the way I express my creativity.

I love to bring non-existing creatures to life just through my pictures. This is the main reason I happen to draw a lot of Pokémon and Digimon. Many of these monsters have such interesting concepts, trying to visualize them is a lot of work, but it's worth the effort.

Digitally and traditionally

I love experimenting with various media. Every material and technique offers different ways of giving a motif its very own personality and expression. I have around 20 years of artistic experience through personal and professional learning, and I have been painting digitally for more than five years now.

Still, I have a lot to learn and so many things I want to practice, to push my skills further with every piece I create. If you'd like to see some of my artworks, I invite you to visit my portfolio.

Patreon is life

Patreon is a platform to support your favorite artists and get a little (or big) extra in return. If you are interested in becoming my patron, you can have an insight in my working processes through sketches, speedpaint videos and background information or even have personal monthly sketches or paintings just for you. You can find me at!

Sketches and WIPs

Everyone who supports me with 3$ or more will have a look at exclusive sketches and unfinished pictures I don't share on my social media pages!

Larger artworks through PS files

A look into the secret files... Well, if you donate 7$ or more, you get an in-depth look into some of the Photoshop files I created. Just download the files and look through all the layers and adjustments yourself.

Rewatch my streams in high speed

I am recording my streams. They are being prepared and cut, so you can rewatch them as speedpaints later on and whenever you want - without my branding on it.

A very special Thank You

Everyone who decides to support me with 35$ or more will have their very own little artwork every month as a special "Thank you!" for your ongoing efforts... Or even a not-so-little artwork for the top patrons.

If you enjoy my content, please consider a cup of coffee.
