Dracenmarx (pronounced ˈdʀakn̩maʁˈks), also known as Blackdrake, and as Riot Heidenstam on Second Life (Born in 1987), is a writer, artist, musician and professional software developer from Germany, who lives near Heidelberg.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Dracenmarx considers himself being a proud member and part of the furry fandom since 2003 although he currently does not own a fursuit or partake in furry conventions.

Galleries[edit]

Dracenmarx was earlier known as blackdrake on FurAffinity from 2006 to 2009, where he created 3D renderings of dragons, and he colored inks/sketches of other artists (fan colorings) in co-operation with painkiller16. Unfortunately, many of these fan colorings were never released since some artists have not reacted to emails asking for permission to publish the colored pieces.

At deviantART, several exclusive commissions as well as some self-drawn artworks, designs and nature photography from 2010 to 2012 can be found.

Dracenmarx has reserved accounts at Weasyl, SoFurry and FurryNetwork for future use.

Aliases[edit]

The name dracenmarx (first letter is usually not capitalized) has its origin in a self-created phonetic notation, where dra¢enmarx or draçenmarx describes the pronunciation of the German word "Drachenmarsch" (translated "march of dragons").[clarify] The name is often abbreviated as dracen (translated "dragon").

The previous name blackdrake (first letter is usually not capitalized) simply meant "black dragon".

Characters and fursonas[edit]

Although Dracenmarx has created several characters for his fictional worlds (approximately 30[1]), only a few specific characters became his main fursonas. Dracenmarx switched his fursonas very often, due to the change of interests, preferences and inspirations.

Previously used fursonas[edit]

  1. Sunny del Sol (part of the "Medieval World of Torronia")
  2. Soleil del Sol (part of the "German Dragon Army" in the "Modern World")
  3. Solar del Sol (guest-appearance in the post-apocalyptic "Fallen World" created by Veyoun)
  4. Aftab Sheng (part of the "Mongolian Dragon Army" in the "Modern World")

Currently used fursonas[edit]

  1. Lewis Resmond (Storyline "The Life of the Truckers" in the "Modern World")
  2. Lewis Wilmot (Ironclaw based medieval world)

Furry projects[edit]

  • In 2008 Dracenmarx started cooperation[2] with two (now-defunct) websites: the image board FurPiled.com (formerly Antropomorfos.org) and the furry community Antropomorfos.com. He developed the FurPiled Suite, a software collection for Windows that simplifies the uploading and downloading as well as the data storage of the image board FurPiled. In 2009, he was additionally occupied as administrator of the German portal, as well as a moderator of the English board and was one of the coders of the image board.
  • In 2009, Dracenmarx helped with the development[2] of TheREDColour (now-defunct), a small furry art/community platform by Marvin Raptor aka NX-3000.
  • In 2015, Dracenmarx has created a free web service[3] which periodically searches FurAffinity for specific keywords, and emails the results to its users. It allows for configuration of which keywords to search for, as well as how often to send the results. (The permission of operating a bot was given beforehand).

World building[edit]

Dracenmarx is a world builder, creating fictional worlds with stories, illustrations, maps, designs and even fictional languages for his fursonas and other characters. He created a few unique species like the "Sun Dragons" or "Mongolian Dragons" as well as defined cultures and history for them. Alas, due to limited free time, only a small part of the work-in-progress works has been published yet, and a large portion of stories have not been translated from German to English.

Dracenmarx has created following worlds[4]:

  • "The Medieval World of Torronia", featuring his previous fursona Sunny del Sol
  • "The Modern World"
    • Storyline "The Life of the Soldiers (German vs Mongolian Dragon Army)", featuring his previous fursonas Soleil del Sol and Aftab Sheng
    • Storyline "The Canadian Wastelands"
    • Storyline "The Life of the Truckers", featuring his fursona Lewis Resmond
  • Another medieval world featuring his fursona Lewis Wilmot. (Initially, Lewis Wilmot was created for a Dungeons & Dragons game and later re-created for Ironclaw. After both games ended, Dracenmarx extended the existing Ironclaw world and included the Ironclaw adventures as part of Lewis's timeline[5].)
  • A small gimmick universe

Most worlds created by Dracenmarx take place on the planet "Earth", although there are some differences towards our real-life planet (e.g. different country names, completely different history or added continents).
