year of birth: 1990
Q1: When did you start making art?
I started traditional when I was 7 years old, by attempting to art school. But I don’t remember much of what I’ve learned 😀
Then, I started CG, when parents gifted me awful Genius tablet in 2008.
Q2: What does inspire you?
Games, music, books. Some ideas come along while I’m walking on the streets or talking with people.
Q3: What are your techniques?
Hmm, I prefer common digital painting in photoshop. I really like to use square texture brush for overall drawing. Now I learned matte-paint and 3D, to create art faster =)
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
There is no common idea, I guess. But few years ago I liked to jeer on some religious plots. Also for every work there is a certain mood and atmosphere, that I try to bring through myself.
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
The color mostly depends on idea and feel, for funny and action pieces I choose bright and saturated colors. For calm, mystic – some cold colors. But the majority of my works is in dark colors, coz it’s more comfortable for me =)
Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
Oh well, there is a lot of aspects, that I need to improve =) Like anatomy, perspective, depth, color picks, how to creep the sh*t out of people 😀
I think there is no limit for perfecting art skill.
Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
Nope, I still need to improve skills and to earn money. Maybe when I’ll become more popular and skilled.
Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of dekades8.
Infinity, observation, calmness.
Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
I guess it will be right to show the first CG art, using tablet, because I wont be able to find my arts from 4-5 age =)
HERE from my prev DA profile.
The technique was quite simple, because I couldn’t draw nice lines using tablet (and was sooo depressed of that) so I scanned some lineart form paper, and tried to color it =)
When I have some sort of artist depression, about skill or creativity, I often watch that old works, and think “Damn, it’s only 6 years” And start to feel okay =)
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
Haha, as I see quite a lot At least I don’t scan linearts before drawing 😀
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
I guess both of that, because when I think about point of my life, then the only idea that comes – I need to draw Also, when I have some problems in life, or feel emotionally tired, then I really relax while drawing, so it is an escaping from reality at some point of view.
