My Bio
(C) English Ivy Divider (FTU) by Moonlight-pendent13
Hi everybody! :dummy:

I'm Elena and I love to draw pictures and write stories.
I also love to travel, for me it is the release when I fly out of the cage to freedom. I love seeing new places and meeting new people. I love to see our world, it's so beautiful!
I love the sky and the stars and nature, and I'm more pagan than Christian.
I love music, but not tied to a particular band or genre.
I love fantasy and often write stories in my head, but I have almost no time to write them.
I'm rather a loner, so I'm a bit of a freak.
What I hate is lies and hypocrisy in other people.

I have been drawing since early childhood, and has long been registered on the DA as a watcher, but seriously appeared on this site only in 2016. Now I try to come here every day and to draw as much as possible, because I believe that practice is the best teacher, and only training can improve skills. I consider commentators to be the second best teacher, so objective criticism is always welcome!

I guess I'm too self-critical because I never entirely happy how my works turn out. I always see disadvantages there. But I adore picture while I'm drawing it, and it's an important step for me before I start drawing to fall in love a bit with things and characters that I suppose to draw.

Drawing and writing are the highest peaks of freedom for me. It's a way of flying above my own world, breathing fresh air, spreading wings and feeling happy.

You produce breathtakingly beautiful artwork.

wow, your gallery is simply incredible. i am gladto have found it. somewhat i am looking for some differences that do not look anime like. and yours is like a breath of fresh air.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you think so and I really appreciate your kind words!

you're welcome and Happy Thanksgiving to you.

Amazing works! I wish I had your talent!

May I ask which digital art programs do you use?

Thank you very much for your kind words! I think the truth is that this is not talent, but rather experience. A few years ago I was very poor at drawing. Although I still have a lot to learn. :)

For digital works, I use Photoshop (and several brushes downloaded for it).

Oh, wow, I didn't know you can use Photoshop to actually create such drawings, I thought it's more for photo manipulation.

I'm at the beginning of the road, I started drawing only recently (and of course, I was drawing when I was a kid, but that was long ago :) ). I think you do have talent! But you are also correct: talent without hard work and practice can go wasted. Keep it up because you're reeeeaaally good! :) :hug:
