Beginning of a Nightmare
by glavnayasova


Q1: When did you start making art?
I started draw since childhood, I don’t know was it art or not. Me and my sister made up different stories, comicses with various characters, sometimes we even did hand made books.

Q2: What does inspire you?
Many things. It can be movies, books, travel. I like walking in forest nearby my house. Also my dreams are very inspiring, from time to time I have lucid dreaming experience, so it can be very interesting.

Q3: What are your techniques?

Mostly I use digital tools. My favorite applications are Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Moreover, since last year I became addicted to iPad mini sketching.
But sometimes I draw fine art with watercolor. Also I like use markers and pencils.

Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
It depends on current work. It can be something dark and mystic, or something light and happy.
A piece of art is something like separate reality or parallel world and we can take a look at it through picture.

Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I like color combination of green and red. I prefer simple color harmony, two or three main colors, which are opposite of each other in color circle.

Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
I have many ideas what I would to improve. In current moment I think my works are too realistic, and want to draw more simple, want make my style little bit easy for perception. Actually I always try something new, don’t want to stuck in one manner.

Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
Oh yes, I have many ideas. But I don’t like to reveal things until them done.

Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of glavnayasova.
mysctic, feminine, surrreal.

Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
This HERE is my first digital art. Of course I had many drawings before, but this art for me was beginning of my digital artist career. I started to draw it spontaneously. I didn’t know what I wanted to draw, so I decided to make picture about girl who didn’t know what to draw, she was sitting and struggled with blank canvas.

Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
When I’m looking at this picture now it seems like it was drawn by another person. It was about 7 years ago.

Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
I think both versions are possible. When I draw art I have “here and now experience”, it’s sort of meditation for me.
