  3. Hey, Sergey !

    Well, my name's Nishan and I am from Malaysia . I am a concept artist, currently working in the local game industry ( athough I am still a beginner ) and you are one of the many artists that inspire me to get better at what I do everyday. I think the first painting of yours that pulled me in was the ' Mermaid ' painting. I hope to continue seeing you grow as an artist. Thanks !

  4. отличнейшие работы, было бы круто если бы можно было скачать твои стримы в виде таймлепса

    1. Спасибо. У меня видео с последних стримов сохранились, я попробую. Выложу на Vimeo, оттуда можно качать, вроде. Единственный косяк возможный - это то, что я во время стримов очень много картинку кручу верчу зеркалю и т. д., поэтому если я ускорю видео, будет все мелькать.

  5. Ahoi Mr. Kolesov. I came to follow your blog just recently when I stumbled upon one of your pieces on CGhub. Since then big fan. I'm a graphic artist/designer working in Cologne, Germany. Not so much concept art or painting stuff in my portfolio right now since I try to shift from design work to illustration/concept work. But some stuff u can find on my blog or at http://stonejackit.cghub.com/ Enjoying your work. Very inspiring stuff with a good amount of humor. Keep up the good work!

    1. Hey. Thank you. I looked through your works and it seems like the transition from design to illustration is going successfully! In my taste you got too much pure black and pure white colors in your light/shadow work. It is not a black color makes shadow to be a shadow, and the same for the white color and light. :) Otherwise you are doing good! Good luck with that.

  6. I'm a big fan as well. I think your colors and compositions are genius. The rendering is fantastic with a good mix of rough and refined. Not to mention the creativity of the subjects. I find a lot in your work I wish I could do. Keep it coming. Moladiets.

Я два раза поменял адрес, и студия, где я работаю, тоже переезжала. И каждый раз у меня было чуство, что не на другую улицу переехал, а в другой город. Здорово тут.

  9. Hi Sergey, I'm an artist at Bethesda Game Studios. I love your artwork. If you're looking for discussion, I'd love to hear what you think about when you are planning a painting - what do you focus on before you start? How do you refine the idea of the painting?

    1. Realy good question! I'll to observe this discussion

    2. Hi Lukas, seems like we are kind of from one family since Im working in Arkane Studios :) Glad to have your question here.
      Well, usually it takes really some time to get sort of clear vision of a painting before start. I'd say I'm always thinking on what might touch the feelings of audience. Yes, when I'm looking for a topic, I like to have some slice of current people's mind state at the moment (following the news, watching movies, following social networks etc.). I think it is important to face the viewers - they are my primary aim) Then, when I got the blurry/raw idea i turn it to myself, like pushing itthrough my vision and experience. Thinking like an author, I can add or change something in order to make my point of view on that. Then if it comes clear, I start to work. So, to summarize, imagine we got train crash somewhere, people died, and I'm like a journalist should go there and make a review for the people. But personally I really cannot stand the awfulness of tragedy and suffering, so I have a problem here, I still should bring the idea of tragedy to the audience, but should do it through my own perception.

      Hope it is clear somehow :) Anyway you are welcome to ask further. Thanks

  10. еще вопрос , что можешь посоветовать по композиции , книжки какие нибудь или может собственные наблюдения

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. По композиции я могу посоветовать только курс основ композиции, который в худ училищах и институтах проходят. Так как кроме этого я сам никакими источниками больше не пользовался.
      Скажу так, композиция очень часто определяет все, и итоговый вид, и ход работы. Для меня композиция - это базис, а базис для меня - всё! Я иногда 5 часов потею над базовым наброском, чтобы потом, когда я наконец-то доволен базой, закончить весь рисунок за 1 час. Композиция очень важная и определяющая штука.
      Не знаю, как толком сформулировать свои наблюдения тут, потому что как-то само у меня выходит, не думаю над этим. Вот глазами вижу всю кашу на холсте, и пытаюсь одновременно сделать эту кашу вкусной, но и чтобы она в тарелке оставалась, не расплескалась.
      Так и сижу, рисую и перерисовываю, пока не увижу - оно.

  12. Hi,
    I´ve added this blog into my RSS quite recently, anyway I really like the way you are expressing your ideas.
    I´m trying to improve my painting skills so I´m looking for some inspiration all the time.
    I have also a blog (still without any comment) so I understand (maybe) how you feel and how much important is to know that somewhere out is some related (?) soul...
    So, don´t worry and just keep going...the whole universe is with you... :)

But now I'm curious is there is anyone following my blog updates except me alone? :) Could be very good place for some really good way of sharing thoughts.

  13. I actually just discovered your blog within the last week. In case you're interested in the trail, I went from browsing thru everything on INPRNT to finding your profile there, then liked what I saw and followed the link to your blog. As I went far enough back in your blog history I realized I'd seen your art before somewhere and liked it, but I dont know where I encountered it. The most memorable piece was a man shooting a blowdart with very puffed-up cheeks, I recognized it instantly. :P

    Back to your question, I like everything I've seen. Though now that I know you're interested in answering questions, I'll be sure to ask a few. :)

  19. Hey Sergey,

    I don't do digital art for a living, but I'm teaching myself the ropes in my spare time (something I wish I had more of). My dream is to do concept art one day, but that's more like a "pipe dream". I find myself looking at your art at least once a day and getting lost in your paintings - they're amazing. Everything about them, the colors, the brushstrokes, the anatomy. Thanks for sharing all of your work, it's really inspiring and I learn a lot from them. I can't wait for more.

  21. Hello there Mr Peleng,

    Your art is an inspiration, I have no idea what kind of path someone has to take to get the skills that you developed. Once I asked you about how you learned and you mentioned something around 9 ears of study, if I remember correctly. Huge inspiration.

    I'm from Brazil, and want to be a good artist and sometimes don't don't the path... and what I should study... to able to do illustrations from my imagination. I have a lot of story about myself, but probably is too much to tell here.... hehe

    If you wanna see my stuff you can find it on DA http://lucasparolin.deviantart.com/ or cghub http://lucas-ps.cghub.com/

    Thank you so much for being such a great inspiration... and keep doing art please!!

  25. Hey Sergey !
    I'm a french aspiring concept artist too, and like so many others I've been inspired by your work for a few years now I think ! The first work that really struck me was that space station illustration you did ! I'm kind of ashamed I didn't know you worked for Arkane though... My stalking skills have worn off over the years I guess ahah...
    This is a weird coincidence because I'm looking for an internship right now, and I actually applied at Arkane Studio earlier today ! Knowing that you work here just make me wish they'd take me EVEN MORE !!

    Anywa, have a good day, and maybe we'll see each other one day if I'm lucky enough...

    I've been your fan since several months or maybe a year ago when one of my friend shared your painting on facebook. I followed your facebook since then and also I often visit your blog when I stuck with my study to get inspirations. Also, I've been using your brush set as well as one of my main brushes, thanks a lot for sharing it!

  58. (Aww fuck, I was writing a thesis here in the coments and lost it. -_-' Ok, let's resume..)

    Hi Sergey!!

    I cannot believe you feel alone in the blog, you have an horde of fans and followers who would go to mordor with only a blink of your eye. :)

    I love all your work, in every aspect of it. Light, color, composition, originality.. your work is magical, fresh and different. I love how clean is your mind, and how you try so much different things in every new piece. Amazing!

    A couple of abstract and general questions, if you don't mind (don't complain, you posted first!):

    1. Which areas of the painting do you feel you need (or would like) to improve?

    2. Are you very analitical, or you just follow the feelings you have while painting? I'd say the latter, but in some videos (Drone Moth, for example), there are moments where you go quite slow, like planning every stroke..

    3. Do you do some kind of exercise to empty your mind before start painting? because man, I have my brain so polluted with so many references, visual information and shit..

    4. Is your ctrl+z broken?

    Anyway, thanks for reading, and for showing your delicatessen to the world!

  85. Hi Sergey, I'm a illustrator/animator from Seattle, Washington. I've seen a ton of paintings you've done here and there on the web, but I never knew it was all one guy! Your storytelling is absolutely superb man! Your painting chops are deliciously sharp as well! Keep being dope.

  88. к стати, очень понравился музыкальный бэкграунд в спидпейнтах. он создаёт дополнительное ощущение непостижимого волшебства,- как из "фарша" возникает удивительная форма, сюжет, композиция, балансирующие на грани реалистичности и узнаваемости, с фантастическим миром, существующим где-то в параллельных мирах

  97. Hello, I dabble in sketching and some painting, but nothing big. I was watching a youtube tutorial (sinixdesign) and your art work was recommended among other artists for inspiration, and I got to say it is dead on. Pretty interesting you work you have here. Good stuff! :)

  100. Привет! Я 27-ми летний иллюстратор / концепт-художник. Слежу за твоими работами с 2005-6 года наверно, когда еще cgtalk.ru жил и процветал - эт была любовь с первой работы наверно) Здоровенный русский мужик в вестерн трактире чистил яйцо и картинка с шпийоном приставившим дуло к голове ошалелой совы... уже тогда понял, что очередной апдейт от тебя будет очередной яркой и неповторимой эмоцией, я тогда только планшет первый купил и доучивался на ядерщика-международника в Москве.. и знаешь, уже скоро 10 лет как слежу за твоими работами, уже успели смениться наверно сотня кумиров дигиталистов, уже успел по-ездить по миру и 3й год уже зарабатываю себе на жизнь артом.. но ты как поражал меня своим скилом, стилем, фантазией и оригинальностью во всем, так и поражаешь. Огромное тебе за это спасибо!
