Digital Painting
Fully Detailed Digital Painting. This type of art is a little a bit expensive in my country i guess, not sure in other country. Feel free to request a commission if you think i'm a good Artist to draw something that you like. It could be anything from a person or a video game character or even yourself. And this is the Upgraded version of the Vector Art, and this is how i'm painting it.
Vector Art
This is the Vector Art Version of My big project usually the Digital Painting. But instead if you wanna request the Vector Art only without painting it, this is the way to go and much cheaper. Usually the simplest style is better rather than the majestic one ;)

Don Rizky Rahmanda
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art

I'm Don Rizky. You can call me whatever you like.
I'm simply known as Maelstrom without the "ss", the "s" is just for cool thing I guess. I'm a Digital Artist as well as Space Artist. I actually have been a Deviant for quite long probably in around 2011, but unfortunately I haven't made an account yet at the time because of my lack of skill of art, and 7 years later here i am now creating Art for the world.

I like drawing a Space Scenery or Fantasy stuff, and also a couple of Fan Arts, I only draw fan art when I really like the character. Most of the art that i make would be a Fantasy Art Featuring landscape or Space Art, Fan Art from other types of game or movie, and Final Fantasy Fan Art featuring Claire Farron a.k.a. Lightning from FFXIII. Why Lightning? because I love her very much, and she's my waifu.

Realistic-Art-Summary by Maelstromss


I'll take you to the gallery of Realistic Art that I've made from 4 months ago until now.

1. Agent Pradit
This is my very first Realistic Art that I've made. And my best at the time. This art was also part of a birthday art trade for berjek it's because of him that I can do this. If it's not, then I probably would never be as I am now.

2. God of War: Kratos

This art was actually a collaboration of art hosted by awvexel called Olbaraw God of War. Thanks to him I could show off my art skill to a lot of people.

3. Connor in The Rain
I'm basically speechless, this is my ultimate breakthrough. When I was painting Connor I was actually struggling to paint the hair don't know what to do, almost giving up, because I have very limited resources from the brushes, the computer which getting even more laggy as the art getting more realistic, and the app almost crashed everytime which makes my heart almost stopped. But because of the support from all of my friends at Facebook and DeviantArt. They encourage me to keep going and I'm able to do this. Just so you know "Effort never lies" because of my hardwork my Connor art is quite a success I got 92 Deviant Likes and got featured in many groups and collection which I never expected.

4. Lightning: Look Me!
This is my oldest project of all of my art and best and most realistic art since Connor in The Rain. For once I did give up making the art and I almost quit because I have failed to make her. The struggle was far worse than I make Connor, I still have limited resources, I have to brainstorming till I got something, retouching the light, the hair, the eyes, her face, and even hand. But for unknown reasons I reach out to my computer and see the project again and I only got a nostalgic thingy, and from there the art was continued. And things just got more excited my mom asking me to go to a Mall and finding me a new laptop so that I could work on my art. And it happens I got the laptop that I want and I move all of my project into my new laptop, everything was gone smoothly and then there's the masterpiece.
5. Zander Maelstrom
Zander is my OC, OC stands for Original Character. A character which completely created and designed in someone's brain in this case it's my brain. Zander is determined, concentrated, and independent. The art was actually a Final Fantasy inspired because I'm a FF fan. For some reasons creating my OC is just way too hard so I decided to ask my friend which really good at drawing to make me a concept art of him and turns out it's pretty good so I recreate him in Photoshop and that's how it looks like.

Thank you if you are really reading till the end. That means you're an awesome fan which I'm glad 😀

Please noted that I've never done any rendering or 3D modelling or whatsoever it's completely Photoshop, and I paint everything from 0.
