I'm really glad you've come to my place and you want to find out a little bit about me.
I was born and raised in Russia; now I live in Canada. The digital painting is my hobby that plays a huge role in my life.
My tools of choice are Photoshop, Painter, and Intuos 3. Up until 2 years ago I considered her-self mostly self-taught in the arts. Now I'm studying part-time drawing and painting in the old master tradition at the Academy of Realist Art. That's how serious I am about my hobby ;)
My inspiration comes from legends, folk and fairy tales, also historical events and movies.. Since very young, I have loved fairy tales and legends. They're the source ofmy inspiration now. I hope that much of my work has a distinct originality and unique feel. I post my artwork in various online galleries, such as Epilogue, Renderosity and Digital Art.
