How to buy my art?
You can buy any of my artworks, I sell both originals and digital versions in good quality, which you can print by yourself. Just write me an email if you want to know the price and buy the artwork. Please note that you can also order custom artworks.

How to order a custom artwork?
You can order any painting: watercolor, oil, acrylic or digital.

The work will consist of four stages:
  1. You send me a detailed description of the required painting, preferred color palette and references (if you have any);
  2. I make a rough sketch;
  3. I draw a sketch, conditionally applying colors;
  4. I’ll send you the finished work.
Each stage is agreed upon with you, so you can make edits.

What I need from you:
1. Describe the illustration in as much detail as possible;
2. Send references (if you have them);
3. Describe the idea and plot;
4. Specify the format and size of the required illustration.

The price and execution time depends on the complexity of painting.

Please feel free to contact me, I am always happy to cooperate.

What is an illustration?

Illustration is a visual art form that involves creating images, often to complement or enhance a written or spoken message. It can be found in various media, such as books, magazines, advertisements, and digital content, and serves to convey ideas, stories, or information through visual representation. Illustrations can range from simple sketches to intricate, detailed artworks, and they play a crucial role in communication, storytelling, and design.

What is the difference between painting and drawing?
Painting and drawing are both forms of visual art, but they differ in their techniques and mediums:
Medium
  • Drawing: Drawing typically involves creating images using pencils, charcoal, ink, pastels, or other dry mediums. It's often done on paper or other textured surfaces.
  • Painting: Painting involves applying wet mediums like oil, acrylic, watercolor, or gouache to a surface, often canvas or wood.
Technique
  • Drawing: Drawing is usually more about lines, contours, and shading. It often involves creating precise and detailed images.
  • Painting: Painting allows for a broader range of techniques, including blending colors, layering, and using brush strokes to create a wide array of textures and effects.
Color
  • Drawing: Drawings are typically in black and white or grayscale, though colored pencils and pastels can be used for color.
  • Painting: Painting offers a full spectrum of colors and is known for its use of color to convey emotions and moods.
Surface
  • Drawing: Drawings are often done on flat, untextured paper.
  • Painting: Paintings can be done on various textured surfaces, and the texture of the canvas or support can influence the final result.
Blending
  • Drawing: Blending in drawings is usually done by hand, smudging or cross-hatching.
  • Painting: Paint allows for easier and smoother blending, and artists can mix colors directly on the canvas.
Both drawing and painting have their unique qualities and appeal, and artists often choose one or the other based on their preferred medium and techniques to express their creative ideas.
