Grand grand news: Olga's Printshop 2.0 is here >> www.inprnt.com/gallery/olgadre…
Current affairsHi guys and gals, how are you doing?
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.
Feel free to connect with me at Instagram >>> @ olgadrebas
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.
Art of Alena 'Zionka' FilippovaHey guys,
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?
Non-art courses every artist could benefit fromHi everyone!
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: http://olga-drebas-art.blogspot.ru/2015/06/freelance-courses-EN.html
Knee Chair? I recommend it.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!
ImagineFX featureI'm very honoured and happy to share the news that some of my artwork made it into the recent issue of ImagineFX (October 2014, in stock here: http://beta.imaginefx.com/shop/magazine/october-2014 ).
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*
Streaming live drawing on Twitch.tv [OFFLINE]Hello everyone!
I'm streaming right now on twitch, so feel free to jump aboard and say hi!
Here is the link >>> http://www.twitch.tv/olgadrebas
Welcome : D
I will be updating this journal everytime when going live.
Goodbye, GoogleReader :'(Just exported all my 350+ arty subscriptions to Netvibes RSS aggregator.
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.
Prints and other merch: your opinion needed!Hello ladies and gentlemen,
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!
E ai pessoal brasileiroAgora mesmo estou no Brasil (BH-MG), tô curtindo meu feriado. No dia 5 de agosto chegarei pra São Paulo, onde eu vou ficar até dia 14, e depois vou embora. Será que tem pessoas interessadas em comer alguma coisa e conversar sobre arte e tal com uma certa russa , caso que sim podemos combinar um encontro artistico em SP. Qual dia seria melhor pra vcs? Eu vou ficar bem no centro da cidade, perto da estaçao República.
The DERE TypesExplained Tsuki Style.
These are all the dere's I know
If there are more, please tell me and I'll add on :3
Bakaderederived from baka, idiot and dere, lovey dovey
- A bakadere as the name implies is a stupid idiot in love, clumsy with the way they're in love, but super in love :3
Bodere: They lash out when embarrassed, and prefer fists over words.
Byoukidere: Usually very sweet and kind, but suffer from some disease (usually a fatal one.) They are often frail and weak in nature.
Dandere derived from silent, is simply a silent type
- Dandere is someone who doesn't talk, is shy and antisocial until the right person comes along, at that point they will talk and become more confidant.
- Daruderes are those who are nonchalant to those who they love, but they do express emotions, just usually show no interest in those who like them
Icon Contest [closed]
Hi. I'm running another contest.
I really need a new icon, an icon that I can probably use for a long time (for my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuMhcz39FjIPeHgOEyChvcg?disable_polymer=true)
so!! why not hold a contest
-USE HIS NORMAL FORM, ignore the monster and past
-No pixel icons, it will ruin the quality on YouTube.
-You CAN animate it, but make sure that the first frame is the main frame, because most people won't be able to see the animation unless they see a notification of me pop up.
-You can do anything with it! Background can be anything, any color, I don't really mind.
-You can shade it, leave it flat, etc.
-Any form of art is allowed! Cell shaded, realistic, paper, lineless, ANYTHING!
-I'd prefer head shots (shoulder to head), but if you want to squeeze in something else, feel free!
-He can wear anything!!
-I don't really have a preference of how it should look. I'm happy with anything :>
Draw My OC's Win a Watercat! [Open]hey yall

Thank you so much for commenting!! Sadly, I won't be accepting any more trades now! All your art is amazing and so gorgeous, and I accepted as many trades, as I can complete in three months time.
I'm going to open art trades again probably after Art Fight!
Since I finished most of my black-ink art trades already, I'm uploading a new journal for designs and red ink illustration, as promised in the poll, bu
