I like cinema and I like to draw motion pictures. I do not like very much to draw static pictures but I can. I studied traditional painting for eight years in the art school and after that I’ve continued to do it myself for 36 years. I like to learn painting even more than to paint.
I work in the small animation studio as a 2D-3D artist. I draw storyboards and backgrounds in 2D. I make the full 3D film work: modelling, texturing, lighting, rigging and animation. I have very little time to paint personal works, unfortunately.
It was terrific! I was scanning the black ink drawings on the paper and colouring them in Photoshop in 1996. It was my black-and-white comics for the regional newspaper.
The choice is simple. No need to buy oil paints and squirrel brushes, it is so lazy. Laziness is the engine of technological progress.
When I found out about Krita I wrote to Boudewijn Rempt and he answered! It was cool!
I have no such experience yet and I have no ability to do that at the present day but I would like do it in the future.
My favourite artists are Titian and Moebius (Jean Giraud). When the developers dedicated the another edition of Krita to Moebius I was interested in this and looked at Krita.
I liked it.
Krita is my favourite 2D package and I would like to do something for its development.
There is nothing to hate in Krita. I hate myself for that I can’t convince Boud to do what I want and not what he wants:)
I like to write to Mr. Rempt and to Mr. Kazakov and I like how they answer.
I don’t have any favourites yet.
I like Smooth Zoom Tool, Wrap Around Mode and Mirror View. I use the standard brushes: Ink_brush_25, Airbrush_linear, Block_tilt, Basic_circle, Bristles_hairy, Basic_mix_soft. I make animated texture brushes and rotate them during painting manually.
Unfortunatelly I cannot share all my professional works to public. It is just because they are owned by the customers of Irkutsk small animation studio Forsight. I can do it a bit on some sites: http://megayustas.deviantart.com, http://ascomix.narod.ru and http://igor-leskov.livejournal.com.
