    digital artist with 8 years' experience

    Ukraine - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 69

    Over the last 8 years I have joggled both creative photo editing and digital painting. Initially I am an experienced traditional artist and it helps me much to create high quality work digitally. I am very attentive to detail and strong at realistic painting. I will never take the job if I feel I am not able to cope with the given task. In short: I am an easy to work with, take direction well and flexible in terms of payment. Experience: - book illustrations - book cover art/design - banners - portrait painting - children's books - posters for horror movies and books (I like dark stuff!!) - photo editing (fashion, product retouch, creative photo manipulation etc etc.) Strong points: - fully texturised photorealistic painting (I can paint from zero) -I preserve the full range of colours and shades so that the artwork is fully editable after it's done. I.e. b/w conversion will never reveal overlighting and black holes. - I fight against fuzzyness and overblurring - I have a good eye for colour and composition - light-hearted personality - I respond quickly, politely and respectfully,always warn my clients about my personal issues. - I ask MANY questions so that the artwork's done perfectly and suiting my client. Please contact me if you feel I am worth working with. Respectfully to all my would-be clients, Polina.
