How did you make these? I work in different techniques, both original painting (acrylic on paper) and digital art.
I draw a sketch, then transfer it to clean paper and draw using acrylic on paper. Usually, I create the color scheme in the process of drawing. I always make a graphic sketch. I work on my illustrations for a very long time, from a few weeks to half a year. Every time I try to improve my technique, to make it more perfect.
Why did you make these? This is my life’s work. I’m in love with my job.
What do people typically say about your work? People usually wonder about my patience. But this is damn true, I am very patient in my work, I am a perfectionist.
