Overlooking Briaellar

This is an initial concept I did for a fantasy novel project "Enhiarg".
A lot of particulars in this panoram are still rough and are to define, but I hope I managed to capture the feel and mood of this city.

Briaellar is the main city of feline people of Enhiarg. This enormous and original world was created by Natalia Anikina.

Dragon Age RPG illustrations

Here are some of the batch I did this summer. Working on these was so much fun!
DA RPG set 3 is now available in the official store, for those who love tabletop games and roleplaying.

Let me know what you think of these!
Thanks for looking.

Studies, "Fairy student" commission

Here are a few painting studies I did recently, the first one is from Sargent, others are brushwork studies from works of Russian State University of Art pupils (S. Petersburg).

  

And this is a recent commission I did for a friend.


I like how this post has some universal topic to it, lol!

ImagineFX art feature (October 2014)


I'm very honoured and happy to share the news that some of my artwork made it into the October 2014 issue of ImagineFX (in stock at IFX shop here)

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!

Old master portrait studies


Here is a 2h study I did, love Velazquez's limited palettes and brushwork.
A-and a little more info I found about him on Underpaintings blog.
 And one more 2h study, this time from Ilya Repin. I thought, since it's same type of update as the last one, I won't make extra post just for it ..

Also a few more life poses I did last year, all below 10 mins, in charcoal:
 Happy New Year, everyone!
