Get better and faster at drawing!

Thu Aug 23, 2018, 2:19 AM
Hey everyone! I hope you doing well! Yesterday I`ve Updatet my Gumroad  page, Now you can see Updated version of Basics. Light and shadow 1  tutorial. Now it has 2 versions(Basic and Full versions). I highly recomend you guys to check it. This 1 part of the series  that explain basic types of light and shadow, terminology and introduces the process of drawing in Photoshop. 
Also my tool presets are avalible now! I saw that some of you want to know how to use brushes, how to blend colors etc. In Tool presets, brushes, and how to use it you will find everything you need 
to get comfortable and stop waisting your time! I think this is all for now) Thank you for your support!

Hey everyone! Hope you're doing well! It's time to tell you where I've been missing all this time, where I moved and the nearest plans for the future.

Let's start with moving) At the moment I'm in Kharkov, Ukraine. This was more difficult than I thought, there were many difficulties with the removal of things and documents( I was not allowed to take out my personal belongings. I had to travel back and forth 5 times  to pick up only the most necessary things. The new place is calmer although I still can not get used to it)
A trip of 200 km by car took about 9 hours in one direction and 9 in the opposite direction. Several times I had to spend the night on the border with the military zone to get home.
But I'm glad that I decided to move) in the near future I will finish my move)

Now I can open Commissions) I have more time, the Internet and I'll be honest I missed it very much)

Prices and some conditions will change)

So now you can ask me about reference sheet. You can find everything here -Comission info (updated)

I got many requests about lessons, tutorials,  high-resolution files, etc. and I wanted to create a patreon on this occasion, but now I have difficulties with this, so I decided to start Gumroad.
This is unfortunately a bit more difficult and I'm unsure whether to continue - but all those who are interested - write your proposals and wishes to me in notes or comments please. Feedback is very important to me!

I want to say thank you very much for all the support! It means a lot to me)

    Hey everyone! Hope you’re doing well! Finally, I’ve reached the Internet, and I’d like to make some announcements.
I`ll start with the most important thing – I decided to move . Yup. At this moment Donetsk is going through its dark days and I’m already tired of all these things.
Since October 9, 2017 in Donetsk, there are some problems with access to the Internet, and it continues up to this day, which affect my work a lot. Often I can`t even read the mails people write to me, I can`t open the references, download finished works and sometimes even send a mail to someone -______-
Honestly, I didn`t think that this would last such an extended period of time. As you can see from what is going on now, it won’t get any better...

I am going to move as quick as possible, and I want to deal not only with some moving issues, but with all things that stored up in my life since October. I want to check if everyone received my messages. I apologize to all who didn’t get any replies. Soon I`ll try to contact everyone who didn’t get my mails or whose notes I couldn’t open. I also want to talk to those who have already asked me about the commissions - please, don’t worry, I’m working on it :) I work on your drawings every day, so soon everyone will get what they wanted :)
In this regard, I decide to close my commissions not for long. I realized that it’s better not to pretend saying to my customers  that everything is fine. I will open commissions as soon as I deal with all my actual work.
I’ve changed my PayPal . So, make sure you got my new e-mail address before paying for your commission.

Talking about the tutorial you want to see, I did a poll, and the tutorial is almost finished :) I tried to take into account your wishes I saw in the comments. Thank you guys for participating)

THINGS HAPPEN

Sat Jul 1, 2017, 5:17 AM
Hello everyone) i hope you doing well! It's been awhile since i upload lat commission. Why? Well, i was in hospital after car accident. But dont worry) i`m fine) while i was there i was rly worried about peole who ask me about commissions (someone even pay me) and i`m rly sorry for such a big delay. I`ve decide to change some things. So from now i`ll make 3 slots for each type of commission: 2 normal slos for everyone and 1 - special. How to get special slot? - if you one of my regular customers, if you wanna make donation (1$ or 100points min), if you wanna see finished commission as soon as possible (+50% from original price), or if you have idea that may be interesting for me (smth like design character, or just cool idea for illustration) - slot is ur`s. Feel free to ask me questions if you want)  I think this can help me to keep my work organized and in this way i think everyone get their paintings in time that they want without big pressure on me) Sounds fair for me. And one more important thing - price. Price will grow up if i`ll have too many requests or if i`ll get better at drawing)
What do you think?
Everyone thanks a lot for patience! Now i`ll go to upload my paintings, read comments and reply to everyone in my notes)
And again sorry for so late reply
Thaths all for now) thanks for ur time!

I will not start work until payment is made.

COMPLEX COMMISSION FAQS:
Q: Why is the cost so high?
A: I work extremely hard to create a finished product that we can both be proud of. The price reflects the level of detail and time that goes into each of these pieces.

Q: How long does the commission take?
A: It all depends on how complex your commission is, where you are on the queue, and how quickly you respond to my draft approval requests.  The average completion time is 2-3 weeks.

Q: Can you do realism?  Can I commission a hyper realistic painting?
A: I can but you're asking me to work outside my current style so it might come out looking like pewp.  But hey, if you want to pay me to give it a shot I wont complain.
