Hey guys I'm back to DA and I'm sooo happy cuz more dolls are coming up! It's been a crazy autumn - all this work and no play made me a dull boy, you know The Shining Stare  . But the winter came and I plan to make something very different this time   . Also, the big event is coming up  - the World Doll Exhibition in Saint Petersburg will start Desember the 20th and I wil become the Special Guest, presenting my Russian collection to the public.
So good to see you all again! I hope it will be a pleasant winter =)

Dear friends, I'd like to THANK YOU all for your birthday comments and congrats! It was a pleasure to read it, so so sorry for delay. My Web crushed down and I had a cold, so I could not answer earlier.
The new BIG doll collection is on it's way though, I hope to post something new in the next month.
Love you!

My dear friends Carlsbergensis  and ShittyChickenBang  have created something amazing - they've translated my short vampire story in English! Hell yeah! Now all of you guys can read it too if you like))) I am so happy and proud to see that some of you are interested in this as well.

I've started this story more than 10 years ago and it has a couple of remakes. There are some imaginary guys I've been living with all these years. The magical world of Echo is a part of my very deep life experience. Life is strange and mystical stuff and sometimes our "real" and "unreal" life intersect...
Anyway, this is the first of my seven stories I'm working on. Also it's a "spin off" of my really big book "Silent Echo". It has vampires, mad doctors and a Goblin King.  Hope you'll like it!
Here are some of pics as well))) I've made them for this particular story.

My dear dolls, it was a pleasure to make all of you. Except Lermontov, of course, yes, I still want to kill you, you little brat.
Mommy is happy and proud!

My sweet Vampire Count fon Krolock is completed. No doubt it was the BEST process of creation I've ever experienced. My hair has turned gray and I worked days and nights for almost 3 months. Yet it's over now and dear Ivan has taken the doll home tonight. The dress is inlaid with rubies, crystal buttons and silver. Best European fabrics. 60 cm tall, made of polymer clay and wood. Here are some photos I've made.

Dear friends!
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope your dreams and projects will come true in 2014 and it will be a good year for art and magic!
I'm starting a side project now, it is a casual video game and I'll post my concept asap. But for now I freeze all of my other projects and dolls. Maybe there will be some posts later next year.
It was a very interesting year indeed! I was learning to drive and cook, Russian vampires became my friends (oops), new Hobbit movie was superb and I've got a special edition of the Labyrinth movie in HD with comments by Brian Froud. Yesterday I've visited Esher exhibition and that was amazing!!! And more amazing stuff is coming up - new job to make, new books to read, new dolls to create, new stories to right, I'll buy Playstation 4 with Thief and Lara Croft games... and I have some secrets to reveal too when the time comes =)
And how was your year 2013, my dear friends? What do you expect from 2014? Please, share your thoughts!
Love, Nat

The 2013 year is almost over. To me it was a Vampire year without a doubt. The Rissian version of "Tanz der Vampire" inspired me so much! I've been working on those figures all this time, and now my project is over. Watch my collection here:
Other stuff is here:
Tomorrow I'll visit my Vampire friends for the last time this year to give them these figures as presents. The show is closing, and it's a bit sad. Yet the actors are still here, still singing at the stage. To celebrate my finished project, please join me and watch this lovely video. No masks, no costumes, just my boys singing. Cuz art, in some way, IS the eternal life.

Happy Halloween everybody! I hope you're having great time tonight. This month was full of surprises - for example, tomb-raider-groupies.deviantar… has chosen my artwork as the 'Treasure of the Week. My Lara Doll has been placed in their special folder and is promoted on the front page. To read more about it, check here !
Also, I've made this little postcard for you guys to enjoy. Now I am watching "CreepShow", eating those sweets (the eyes are very tasty), here's my costume of the Vamp Doll and the cutest pumpkin I've ever carved - it is only 9 cm high =) So have a nice Samhain!!!
Hi friends!
I've spent almost 2 months of summer working on this really boring side project, but it's over now, thank God, so I can return to the fantastic world of art!
I hope you've had a great summer, cuz my vacation was great! In fact, I have a all-terrain vehicle driving license now! So I've had so much fun driving that damn thing around the Russian woods and fields!
Also, I've started a new series of pictures named "The faces of Echo". I will upload it from time to time, adding creatures and characters from my book. Here's the link =)

Oh yeah, I've started a new story! But, as always, it's Russian version only, you can see how I suck at English. :sick:
Also, something amazingly COOL has happened today - I've received the most pleasant compliment from... WETA WORKSHOP senior sculptor and conceptual designer Johnny Fraser-Allen !!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!
He is new here at DA, so please welcome this really epic person before another "Hobbit" movie came out!!!!

So, of course, new dolls are on their way, because I am home and it's time to create something BIG!
Please tell me about your adventures if you like =)

Hi friends!
I've made a small video about my "doll room" today. It was hard, to tell you the truth, cuz I am a very shy person and plus it's the first time I try to speak English, sorry about awkward comments. I hope you will like it, so welcome, feel free and come on in!
Love, Natalya

Hello, my dear friends!
I am back from the summer house and online again! It is so good to be home!
It was very cold and extremely lazy summer =) I've finished my fanfic about Lara Croft (it's Russian only, sorry) with only one Lara doll and a couple of pictures - and that's about it! So lazy!
Anyway, I hope I'll make more dolls and pics this fall. So glad to see you again!!
Love, Nat

OMG I'm back to the world of the living!!! I was working for a month without ANY breaks and now it feels like being in a dream or something. Four of my dolls are sold to the galleries and Sherlock doll went off to London "Peacock" gym, but I'm so tired I can't even feel the joy of it. Or write properly... :( Hope to post something cool pretty soon, so much to do, so little time! And it's so great to see you again, my dear friends!!! :D
