Hi! I hope you haven't forgotton me totally. I have been so hyper busy that I hardly (mm.. more like not at all) have had time to do any personal artworks. I have done tons of bookcovers in meanwhile and some of them have come out amazing - maybe they have been even best things I have ever made. I wish I could show you them all. And then, for last three years, I have taken traditional art classes that have been huge development for me. I never felt I was able to draw with just pencil or watercolors but with those last years I have made huge process. I definitely should upload some of the pencil portraits I have done. And then - last year, I illustrated the whole children book. That was something huge and I was very happy when this year they asked me back to make a illustrations for a game inspired from the book. That was a lot of work and new experience - making so many pictures with such a short time. So.. I have kept myself busy (+ my work, PhD studies and programs to get children interested in robotics) but finally.. I have no idea where did I stole the time but.. I have new personal artwork..

It just poured itself out of me tonight. It is definitely not the most complex work but somehow I love it. Maybe just because it is something new I have made.. something that looks gorgeous for me. Maybe because I actually finished a piece (believe me, there were many starts but zero finished works, sadly).

So.. the story (as I always have a story with an image).. This time.. I do not have one. I had totally different image in my mind. It had something to do with rain. I worked on a bookcover lately where I have amazing change to play around creating rainy scene and that reminded me what a challenge it can be and how much fun it is. So, I wanted to make something with a rain that I could upload here. But when I started to create that bluish image, it turned into gothic work with dark forest and something I never believed will find a place into my artwork - scull.. oh noo.. but it felt perfect there.

Anyway.. I really, really hope you like it and I do hope I will get more of those "needs" to pour myself out on digital canvas and make some more great pieces. :)

Wow, I'm sorry I have not been very active on DA because I missed this for several months! This is a really beautiful work - like you said, maybe not your most complex, but it is so cohesive and all of it just works. It absolutely looks like it just came from you and you ran where it inspired you to go as you went along. <3 Just gorgeous.

All the other things going on (or that were 7 months ago) sound really exciting, and I hope you'll post some of your traditional works too!

Oh.. I have been away from DA myself too much too. Super busy with everything else and not having enough time to do art. I have done some classical pieces but I do not feel confident about them to upload them here.

I saw your newest stock photos and they really inspired me so who knows.. maybe there will be a new piece soon :D
