So it's spreading. Not likely to bother me, though (considering how often viewers visit my page).

Comment and I will...
1. Tell you something I learned about by looking at your DA page for 13 seconds.
2. Tell you a color you remind me of.
3. Tell you my first memory of you.
4. Tell you what movie, TV, or video game character you remind me of.
5. Ask you a question.
6. Tell you something I like about you.
7. Give you a nickname.
8. Tell you the object that is to the left of me.
9. Dare you to post this in your journal!

Thoughts aloud: 'I really need to put my scanner to work...'
I thought that the whole biography is too large for deviantID. So I decided to move it here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here goes my little biography. My English is… well, it is 'slightly' not perfect. So excuse me for any mistakes, please :)

I was born in the city of Kyiv, the proud capital of Ukraine, and started drawing since my earliest childhood. (Un)fortunately I didn't get any special art education. I was visiting some art course for a short time, but it was not very productive training (but I did gain some amount of skills there). So I may proudly say that most of what I learned about drawing I learned myself.

I'm also very lucky (or talented) - most of my successful works were done in short time and in one turn. This means: no serious preparation, no basic sketches, no second tries, etc. This big luck, as I recently realized, is also a big problem - I got used to easy success so badly that usually I don't put much serious effort in any work. I mean, if something goes wrong I usually give up continuing that. Because of that I can draw very thin range of things.

About 5 years ago I started making modules (it's like an addons) for Neverwinter Nights (it's such a computer RPG, best of all times, IMHO). Since that time I got insaniously obsessed by modulemaking. For example, now I am remaking one of my modules for a 6th time! And that's while I haven't finished even a single module (though some of the unfinished ones were large and almost done). Well, I actually finished one module - but that was just a proof of that I could ever finish a module.

About 1-2 years ago I started writing. It all started as humble tale about a rebel in the Half-Life 2 universe. I wrote (in Russian) three such tales and called it the series 'Poison in Blood' or 'The Memories of a Man'. There supposed to be a continuation, the next, 4th tale, but I didn't have an inspiration for making it. Just like that, the series was given up to be uncompleted.

After some pause and unsuccessful attempts of writing I finally approached to my main creations. This time I was writing in Ukrainian. The process itself was not interesting enough to write in details about it, so lets just say that in the end (now) I have one finished non-science fiction action story 'The Legion and Me' and two unfinished (the sequel to 'The Legion and Me' and a perfectly new story). The sequel is called 'Day by Day' (together with the previous story they form 'Memories from the Afterstar' cycle). The new, independent story is a dark fantasy tale, called 'Cold Wind'.

In all these tales I have a habit to torture my characters (figuratively and literally). My tales are full of light drama, action, horror and similar things… I don't know what to write further, so that would be all for now. Have a nice day! :)
