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)

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.
