Different times - different problems. While I was mostly using a Wacom tablet, it was difficult to find time to draw something, but at least I could be sure that the result seen to other people has correct colors, contrast, brightness etc. Now that I work more with traditional media (this period began about a year ago), the trouble is the scanner. The only one I can use is at work, and it always ruins the colors and brightness, especially those of the drawings, that are made on "kraft" paper (see Sketches folder). I have to spend more time correcting all this in GIMP... Hmm. Seems that there is no solution to this issue, except for making more digital art again 8)

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Born and live in Tallinn, Estonia.

You're welcome!

Drawing/painting for as long as I can remember myself, and luckily, I have had long periods of more or less systematic training:
- some painting studio in childhood
- 5 years of arts school (not finished, lack of time:) )
- 3.5 years of Orthodox Icon painting in Tallinn Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. (A very exciting and precious experience that was, thanks to our teacher L.A.Sokolov)

In 2008-09 got a simple Wacom Bamboo One as a gift, in 2010 began using it with some success. I do like other materials (pencils, pens, acryl, oil, tempera...), but don't even have a table in my room. So the tablet was a good solution in this case. But I'm trying to get as much as possible:)

Since the beginning of 2013 I am trying to use more traditional media such as watercolour pencils.

Other hobbies present, too. And a family, thanks to all of them for supporting me.
