I make some illustrations, mostly furry-related. I’m still learning, I improve with every illustration I make. See my art page for commission status, a gallery, and other information related to my art.

Game development

I love making games, although lately my focus goes out more towards making art rather than programming.

I’m a front-end programmer with little experience in back-end. I code mostly with Java, but sometimes with JavaScript or Python. I am experienced with OpenGL, OpenAL and other common native libraries.

I used to do a lot of Minecraft mod development but as of lately I kinda stopped doing that. I have one mod that actually worked out, I am trying to maintain that. For other projects I did, see the projects menu at the top of the page.

Furry life

I’ve joined the fandom around May 2021. For a list of cons I’ve been to and that I am attending, see this page.

I’ve two fursonas. My main fursona is Shadew, a grey fox with bright coloured eyes in two different colours. I am hoping to get a suit of them anytime soon. My alternate fursona is Ivy, a green-brown fennec.


What does Shadew mean?

Shadew is short for Shade Wind. It’s the name of my main OC, Shade Wind Runefox.

It’s a misconception that Shadew is formed from the word ‘shadow’ with an E replacing the O. Shadew was a name I formed to fit an OC I made in 2019. I used to go by the name RGSW, or RedGalaxySW. At some point I decided that SW should mean ‘Shade Wisp’, after I came up with a simple demon-ish OC. The theme fit in a Minecraft mod I was writing back in the time. I halted the development of the mod eventually.

RGSW would have meant ‘Red Galaxy Shade Wisp’, but as I started to dislike the ‘Red Galaxy’ part, I switched to Shade Wisp, which became Shadew eventually. Later, I changed the meaning to Shade Wind. You can pronounce it Shade-Ew, as well as Sha-Duw.

Are you cute?
