So, another year is coming to an end. And I practice my drawing two years already. Of course, I did try to draw some decent pictures much earlier, but the results were so screwed up, that I don’t even want to be remind of them. I can’t say, that this year was that interesting and exciting, but, yeah, there were a lot of trouble. More than half of this year I tried to deal with the troubles and overcome the obstacles on my way in life. That’s why I didn’t draw a lot (even if tumbler counts). I just didn’t have any time or I was too tired to do anything. Plus, I wasn’t in the mood to do something fruitful and beautiful. But I hope, the situation will change in the future and I’ll draw much more to improve my skill and to prove that you didn’t subscribe and support me for nothing.

And good news: you are about 1000 already… I mean, subscribers, or I would like to call you supporters, because it’s very important for me and makes me see, that I can achieve a lot despite a lot of difficulties I have to face in life.Thanks you a lot for this, I can’t even describe, how I am grateful. It means a lot for me, as I said earlier and I mean it.

Anyway, I was really shocked, that my art drew so much attention. About 1000 supporters… It’s like a population of a small town. Just wow…

And of course, I would like to say thanks to my friends and especially to a good friend LuckyBlond (Nikita Krygin), who helps me a lot.


Next year, I’m going to buy Intuos5. I said that I would buy another one, but after some thinking, I came to this decision because of different factors, but it’s another story for another day))) Sure, I won’t become the professional at once with it’s help, but there are some functions in this device, that will help me to draw faster without losing the quality. Yeah, I even thought about buying Cintiq (it’s like a big monitor), but there are a lot of disadvantages that made me give up this idea (it takes a lot of space, raaaather expensive, I’m not used to this kind of devices and so on).

And what did I want to say in the end?

Ah yeah!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m not that good with congratulations, but I wish you the happiness in your life. Isn’t it the most important thing in the world? To be happy ))) And I wish you be happy always, everywhere and with your precious people near you to support you and share your happiness. See you around.
