Hi guys, thanks a lot for all your B-day wishes.

This Bday is really special for me because I stated as a character artist in  World of Warcraft team month ago and this job even more awesome than I used to dream about.
I'm happy to work and learn from really talented people on this not less than legendary project.

Pepakura lich

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 14, 2012, 10:27 AM
Hey there.
This Saturday started great so far, because  I got really great link on finished pepakura character 50cm/19,69 inches tall based on my old Lich 3d model
Lich.Presentation shot. by FirstKeeper

The Lich - a by Destro2k  The Lich - e by Destro2k The Lich - d by Destro2k The Lich - c by Destro2k The Lich - b by Destro2k

The author is :icondestro2k: and he totally nailed it. Don't forget to check wip destro2k.deviantart.com/galler… the rest of his gallery, he definitely knows how to use glue and paper, believe me.

It's not for sale

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 2, 2011, 10:58 PM
I always don't mind if people ask or even don't ask my permission for using some of my Warhammer 40k fan-arts for sites or whatever not commercial with only one condition - credits on my DA.
Once, I posted a large wallpaper size of my Adepta Sororitas artwork for free and for personal using, but it seems that  someone has decided to rise some money here cgi.ebay.com/T1089-Warhammer-4… of cause erased my site credits,  kinda rude.
Oh, well, gonna figure out what to do  with that small pile of crap.

Low Poly characters Tutorial #1

Journal Entry: Tue May 3, 2011, 10:07 AM
First issue of my very first tutorial. You can read there about my modelling pipeline and how to ask your hubby to use his concept.
Finally, a last part of our collaboration with 3DTotal was published, it has been since November when this project was started.
I wrote this series of tutorials, because I receive a very many similar questions on how I create my old-school  characters.

You can buy  this 3DCreative  issue here:
