Getting acquainted with video games further inspired the Russian artist, who likes to take cues from storytelling. Alexandra worked purely in traditional media until fairly recently when she got roped into digital art by a local team of casual gamers.
“As a freelancer I have time to illustrate my own fantasies,” she says, “and often do so with acrylic, especially when my eyes are tired from a long time at the monitor.”
Alexandra remains modest about her work, lamenting that she never studied anatomy, perspective and composition. She draws every day, without fail.
