Tradigital and cel-Animation

As a theater artist, I drew sketches of scenery, similar pictures of the stage with different lights and atmospheres in them, I liked to make sketches of costumes for actors and create characters in general. In this point Animation is very similar to Scenery Painting. Obviously, most principles of theater composition are identical to animation ones. A years after my graduation at Penza Art College in 2005 I got in one of the biggest and well-known animation studio in Russia - Melnitsa where I learned the basics of Animation. Couple months after I got on my first big animation project, it was a feature movie titled Ilya Muromets and Solovey Razboynik (2006) as a cel-animator. That's how I met the Animation.

Graphics and paintings

​​​​​​​As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be an Artist, and I always knew one day I will. That’s why I made a decision to study Arts. At College my favourite subjects were Drawing and Theatrical Composition.
