Hi! I'm a nerdy artist with a BA degree in computer games art. I love cartoons and retro games.
I'm a comic book colourist and an illustrator working on two titles - I'mmortal and Changeling: An Urban Fairytale. Drawing and crafting are my two favourite things ever. I love working with other people's characters, so I'm always happy to do commissions: traditional, digital, sculpting, custom toys - I'll give it a go. And just in case you need some translation work done, from Russian to English and vice versa, I can do that too.
Staying alive is pretty expensive. If you'd like to help me survive and gain my everlasting admiration, please check out my Patreon .

Behold, my new account and new artistic identity: RubbishRaccoon (I've just uploaded a fun little animation there, you should check it out). Why? I've been wanting to rebrand for years, but wasn't sure to what. And now, thanks to a certain person comparing me to a raccoon, I found a username I find both humorous and relatable. What about this account? I'm keeping it and there might even be some updates - say, if I ever find the time to update the flash generators, I'll update them on this account. In addition to sentimental value, I don't want to break any links going to this account. Though I might put certain recent pieces in storage here and reupload to RubbishRaccoon with the new signature. Will RubbishRaccoon actually be active? My sources say yes. Maybe. I've not posted much here because I've been busy colouring comic books and I've got more colour work on the way. But with some luck, I'll also be making painting videos soon and those paintings will need to be uploaded
So Eclipse is DA's default site theme now. I suspect it won't be long before the classic theme is gone completely. What do I think? It's far from flawless. It might take years for the interface to become more polished and less clunky, but when it happens, I'm sure it'll be the best DA we've ever had. It looks like every other portfolio site and I'm fine with that. I like that our art is the visual focus now. I do have a problem with the desktop interface being an afterthought (how big do these menus need to be?). I stopped using DA on mobile a while ago, but I won't be surprised if it still crashes a lot, despite clearly being a priority. I happily live under a rock, so I don't know what everyone else thinks. I assume there's a lot of hate for Eclipse. I can see why - something you know and love is being swapped for a weird bootleg copy of ArtStation. If you've been around for a while, you've seen some drastic changes happening to the classic theme, too. Some were good, others made
Hey! Do you enjoy designing characters? Got some OCs you're proud of?
Well, here's an opportunity to show off them killer skills!
To celebrate the launch of the Mythoverse Kickstarter, and also its satisfying progress, an art contest has been announced.
The Mythoverse is a brand new shared comic universe comprised of three titles: CHANGELING: An Urban Fairy tale, Adobe Kroger - Dame Commander and Mythics.
You can read all about these on the Kickstarter page.
The Contest: design a 20-year-old Maeve
Maeve, the adorable star of CHANGELING, is the youngest member of the Mythoverse. She's the shortest in the poster below.
