This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get a premium membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get a premium membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!

If you find a "pinup" image in my gallery, check again. Your brain is fooling you.
In 2015, I will be thirty (30) years old. I do not have any education in anything related to arts, apart from the basics everyone is taught at secondary school here in Russia. Whatever I managed to learn comes from books, online tutorials and experimenting. This is but a hobby for me, so unfortunately it means I will never be good enough so as not to be ashamed of the faults abundant in my traditional "artwork", neither will I ever have enough time to justify forgoing the use of premade 3D content completely. And yet, I just cannot quit for good. I tried. I am very sorry.
What I do:
-- traditional artwork: (not posted as often as I'd like to because of scanner issues)
----- graphite pencil and similar coloured media (crayons etc); ----- watercolours (leaning more toward gouache).
-- digital artwork:
----- 3D: ------- biggest 3D passion: lighting and materials; lately started writing shaders in RSL; favourite scene setup software: DAZ Studio; render engine of choice: 3Delight; ------- other 3D skills: hard surface modeling and organic sculpting (including custom morphs for premade figures); favourite tools: Silo, Hexagon, Carrara (particularly spline modeling), Sculptris;
----- image editing: ----------- postwork for 3D renders and photos (integral part of my artwork); favourite tools: Paint.NET with its awesome plugins, Twisted Brush Pro, a few free Photoshop filters;
----- general design: ----------- oldschool HTML, CSS, page layout; favourite tools: Xara Designer, Inkscape (for bitmap generation and layout mockups only: I code HTML and CSS by hand)
Feel free to visit my blog, where I post 3D tips, random musings, test renders and just about anything else that comes to my mind!

I hope you are all doing well, regardless of what country you live in and what your beliefs are. I'm sorry I've been sort of busy with stuff elsewhere, but, well, let's hope things change a bit some day soon
