Maja is an active member and founder of two fansites – TibiaBosses.com and of course TibiaFanart.com. She is known mainly as a fansite items’ creator and participant in fansites contests, where she publishes pixel art sprites, drawings, and sometimes figurines made out of polymer clay.
Her biggest popularity came from her pixel art designs, a good part of which made it into the game as items representing various fansites!
TibiaDraptor.com – Fansite Item Contest 2021
One of its most loved projects by the community, which took 2nd place in the lottery of players’ most wanted items (Fansite Appreciation Day 2022).
A version with slightly altered animation was introduced to the game.
In Tibia, you will find as many as 12 items designed by Makadamia. And as a result, she broke the record for the number of sprites introduced into the game created by the player.
- Midnight Panther Doll (2014)
- Adamant Shield (2018)
- Omniscient Owl (2019)
- Love Elixir (2020)
- Baby Munster (2020)
- Tibiapedia (2020)
- Chaos Critical Dice (2021)
- White Lion Doll (2021)
- Magic Hat (2021)
- Luna (2021)
- Draptor Doll (2022)
- Yeti Doll (2022)
Some of her other sprites, that have not been implemented into the game, are presented below:
TibiaPal.com – Fansite Item Contest 2022
The concept of the contest was to create a beaver (a pet associated with intelligence) wearing a shirt and with a calculator – symbolizing the many tools for calculating statistics in Tibia.
And here is probably her career highlight sprite, created to represent the TibiaFanart.com website as an in-game fansite item. You can read more about this doll in her article – “Yeti Doll”:
However, her creations are not only 32×32 pixel items. Maja sometimes tries her hand at fewer standard sizes to design headlines for articles, etc.
If you’re interested in her other sprites and their history – stop by her Instagram dedicated solely to pixel art!
Over the years, Makadamia has also won many awards in fansite contests for her drawings, which stand out for their rich colors and imagination! Often the drawing is enhanced with watercolor paint or many other artistic techniques to create an interesting collage.

Check out the other drawings and collages she’s done, as the collection is quite large:

Below is her latest drawing done for ViviaTibia.com for the “Magic and Creativity” contest in 2022. This time something in a completely different style than usual – a chibi character in a color scheme directly related to the fan item she designed – “Magic Hat”.
Her great passion is modeling with FIMO polymer clay, which results in a variety of colorful figurines that win recognition among players during competitions:

Occasionally, Makadamia also tries her hand at contests to create something out of unusual things. Below is a wedding bouquet made from recycled materials for “The Wild Wedding” contest organized by TibiaHome.com, TibiaMagazine.com.ve, and ElPodcasTibiano.com.
She used empty Pepsi cans, mineral water bottles, and candy wrappers, to make it!
Last but not least, Makadamia occasionally gives vent to her creativity by decorating Tibia houses. Mostly for her own use, or the request of friends.

Below are some other decorations:
She publishes her Tibia adventures on her life thread on TibiaBosses and Instagram, while all of her artworks you can find on her DeviantART account!
