Graphic designer and digital artist
I’m Christel Michiels and I’m graphic designer from Belgium. I discovered the art of photomanipulation on Deviantart, the big creative community, and I joined it in 2006.This curiosity will become a passion same if my first drafts was very bad without technics and signification. For me the communication by the image is very important. Finally I have founded my way and my style after many hours of works and my art has evolved between 2008-2009. A new passion is born in same time that Darkyria Design. Darkyria Design is the creative name that I choosed because it is the reflect of my personality and my works. This new knowledge added to my own skills acquired during my bachelor degree in graphic design, allows me to explore beauty in darkness, forgotten world, mythes and legends but also it’s a very good way to narrate stories with my own vision, to give and share some feelings through characters with others people. I’m mainly work with fantasy, emotional and dark illustrations and the most of time I choose female character as main subject. I’m specialized on creating multiple types of art, that being used on the net or for print issues.
