Elinor -- she is like a mirror. Sort of distorting one though.

If you know Russian, you can read the book here (если вы знаете русский, то книгу можно почитать здесь):

Wow, your work is wonderful man, there should be more artists like you on Deviant, I am sick and tired of those anime crap, and people's pretentious attitude.

Every form of art is good. The world needs diversity. :)

I totally agree with you. But what I was saying is that well not that anime is crap, anime is a beautiful art form, it is just that some people really ruined it and turned into something that is unnatural, impure and grotesque.

Well, anime-styled pictures are a worldwide mainstream now. Young teenagers in the mass (as the most active appreciators) do not care about quality or about the method of creation. So we can see a lot of pron pics traced from photos or just plainly traced screenshots. But. No one will remember these pictures ten years later because there is no art. Teens will grow up eventually, and new ones will crave for new idols. :)

So eh what art school did you go to in Russia? And How come your English is good? Do you like life drawing? Also besides drawing portraiture of people, do you also draw still life and mechanical, as for me I usually go through 3 phases in a year: first painting people, and then mechanical, and sometime landscape, right now I am stuck in the drawing mechanical phase, which means you are gonna see some drawings and paintings of tanks or vehicle coming out in the next few weeks. As you can see I used to be an anime lover, but over the years i lost interest, so I might sound kinda emotional in my post, I find lots of outside interest besides drawing anime, like American cartoon, computer animation ( I went to school for it) and doing comic books ect.

Well, I have to admit that I never attended to any art schools. I'm a self-taught artist. The same goes to learning English (mostly from books and movies).
Works in my gallery pretty much cover all of my favorite topics. I love neat designed vehicles and architecture, but I have a lot to learn about how to draw them myself.
Anime like any form of art has its own masterpieces and short-lived works. We should take what we like; no need to focus on some bishoujou's panties. :)

Great painting, those small details on her skin and eyes make it really lively.
And how strange, I got a character for about a year now, that I play in a game, that is pretty young, has blonde hair, green-brown eyes, is a necromancer and often behaves as if she's so innocent and...she's calles Eleanora. XD

She looks so beautiful.

May I say that she reminds me on one of my own characters? So, that's why I find this painting very inspiring. EVen if it wouldn't be the case, her gaze is so gentle, it would be inspiring after all.

That means she isn't such a gentle character? Would you like to describe her? I mean how she really is?

Let's say she is fascinated with death and brings it often. But it's just a small part.

Do you use Corel Painter 6.0? Or is it just painter?
Between, beautiful artwork. It's dreamy, I love the colors.

Thank you kindly!
It was called MetaCreations Painter 6.0 -- before Corel Corporation bought it. Now it's just an old version of Painter.

Спасибо! Иногда я думаю, что надо забить на иллюстрации (пока) и выкладывать. :)

Прямо выкладывать книгу? Раз "забить на иллюстрации", то как текст? :O_o: Я думала, ты ее издашь, и поэтому показывать пока не можешь.
Я так давно жду от тебя что-то с сюжетом! Очень надеюсь дождаться. :D
Reply
:icone-soulu:
e-soulu Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Да, планирую публиковать в сети, а потом как получится.
У меня сюжет местами экстремально загибается в плане морали -- это издателей отпугивает, когда речь идет о "начинающем" авторе. Так что пока печатают только короткие и более миролюбивые рассказы. :)
Reply
:icontree-spirit:
tree-spirit Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Понятно. Я очень рада, что светит возможность почитать! :D
Наверное, издатели посмотрят на реакцию в сети и перестанут так пугаться. :nod:

И еще, я сейчас понимаю, что я жуткий тормоз и пропустила что-то важное... а что у тебя пока печатают и можно ли это где-то прочитать?
Reply
:icone-soulu:
e-soulu Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Ха-ха, может быть, реакция в сети их еще больше напугает. :)

Маловато пока публикаций, поэтому стараюсь не отсвечивать. Вот в этом альманахе кое-что есть: [link] Но можно проще поступить: если хочешь, я пришлю парочку рассказов -- они маленькие.

Не-не, лишь бы популярность была, это их и мотивирует. :) А популярность будет, в этом я не сомневаюсь. :)

Am kinda afraid to know what she might be thinking . . .

Is that a bone in her hand?
