dA feels somewhat of an art dump site lately (I don't know if it's me or..?).
Much of the folks seem to have migrated to facebook and other platforms, which I did, too, after 10+ years of posting solely to dA.

Drop me a comment there if you need an extra pair of eyes on your work. Going social is much easier there for some reason.
In other news, I've completed my 1st year of oil painting studies, it's been great so far.
Man I discovered suddenly I'm tired of doing only digital work
So that's it for now,
have a nice day And see you online.
check out the work of one of our fellow russian painters, Zionka
Alena is one of yet undiscovered artists over here and I think her art totally deserves more attention.
The latest series she did with one of her OC's depicted in styles of famous painters of the past are very well executed and just overall hilarious, for example:
Isn't he adorable?
Just thought I'd share a few of the non-art courses I took in last couple of years,
each of them helped me tremendously in my freelance work.
Please feel free to suggest any courses that you took, if you think something is missing from the list!
See the short list over here in my blog: olga-drebas-art.blogspot.ru/20…
I bought a knee chair 1,5 years ago and totally forgot to share my experiences (as I promised to friends). Classic case of happy client.
Well, if you wondered if it's worth buying, it sodding IS.
Everything they wrote in review articles I googled before purchase, is true.
I'm now working from my country manor , no fancy chairs here, just a plain old classic one.
I feel the lack of my knee chair with my spine.
If there are any ergonomic tips you'd like to share, too, please feel free to shoot in the comments. Let's take care of our backs!
Go check it out, there are some very useful materials written by Nathan Fowkes and Chris Oatley,
not to mention the section with sketches from "How to train your Dragon - 2"!
Yay! *excited dance*

Welcome : D
I will be updating this journal everytime when going live.
It was easy and all my folders and stuff are in place, but... Gosh it sooooo lacks G Reader's simplicity.
Now I have to be careful to not to get my brain sucked into this опасное сосало, as we say here in Russia,
because there are just too many delicious pics waiting to be viewed and drooled over.
I'm now thinking about possible options of opening an online shop with prints of my artwork,
or with artwork based on game projects I'm currently freelancing on (as well this would include
little things like stickers, calendars and so on, you name it).
The question is, would you be interested in such offer?
If yes, here is one more question for those of you who are _not_ russian residents -
which online services would you recommend for opening such a shop in your country?
(I want the stuff to be delivered cheap and easily - and I don't know a lot about ordering stuff from abroad)
Thanks a bunch!

I made it into the top ten. Landed 10th, though, so on the next challenge there will be some good motivation to start drawing things *in time* and *make my best* art-wise
Here are the results: www.comiconchallenge.com/2010/…
