Olga abandoned IT studies to follow her dream of becoming an artist, and has since freelanced for a host of private clients. She’s worked on tabletop games and matte paintings to creating 3D imagery as an in-house employee for a video game development company.
“I favour simplistic designs over complicated ones,” Olga says. “Logic and functionality over style. I like the older versions of Photoshop and the colour green.”
The Moscow-based artist is continuously honing her craft, paying particular attention to oil painting and storytelling, while taking inspiration from the works and memoirs of the old Russian masters.
1 Red Hood “This was turned into promo art and a poster for a freelance project I’ve been working on. It’s a post-apocalyptic twist on Red Riding Hood tale in form of a casual hidden-object game.”
2 Edge Ch aracters “A fellow tabletop games fan commissioned this piece, which is based on a rather loose description of both the characters and the scene. I learned a great deal from the old masters’ figurative pieces while working on this one.”
3 Descendant of Dragons Character “This is art for a community activity I was participating in at the time. The contest winner asked to portray their character, which I did. Working for a specific cause motivates me to create better art.”
