Karolina, better known as Lärienne or Princess Lärienne, a traditional and digital freelance illustrator from Poland. In her works, she loves bringing various characters, concepts, symbolism, and stories to life. 

She loves fantasy, manga, Disney and her favorite are the elves. She has been part of Deviant Art for more than 9 years and In 2016, she was awarded the ‘Deviousness’ award for her huge impact on the DeviantArt community, supporting and inspiring fellow deviants. In 2018 she will be releasing her first book, full of her art tutorials.

Key Takeaways

“If the times are bad, use art as a therapy for yourself, and just try to find the artistic essence in yourself … what story you got to tell us? You are a great addition to the artistic community”

  • Larienne always adds little back stories for her drawings on Instagram
  • Larienne thinks that artists should focus on different social media because you never know what happens with the algorithms and where the clients are coming from
  • When communicating with clients, be organized, create a schedule, answer their questions, show them WIP, update them on your progress
  • Before starting, Larienne wishes she knew that you shouldn’t compare yourself to other artists – you are unique, you got your own pace and you need to focus on self-development
