My name is Tanya Podolskaia. I’m a professional fantasy illustrator, concept artist, RPG and DnD fan.


My favorite thing about art is that I can tell stories about characters and the worlds they live in. Also, I pay much attention to storytelling aspects in my works, incl. color and light development.

When I don't work for clients I keep drawing. Currently, I am working on my own short animation project and organize the CG art community in Stuttgart.

I started to use the Navigator feature heavily, focusing more on the overall readability of the picture. Practice: make studies of your fav. art piece or movie screenshot using only 2-3 values. Materials: Great video where Sinix shows how to make this study  Clear goals 20 minutes of focused painting is better than 2 hours of aimless smudging. Before I start doing something, I ask myself: “What is the goal of this certain stage?”  Usually, one
