“I work in a very simply way. I start to figure out all the story. I imagine all characters scene by scene, chapter after chapter. Next I try to deal with it in the most synthetically and effectively as possible. I create some of visual shortcut, to implement what I’ve imagine than I outline it.
I don’t like sketching too much before. To tell the truth it dispel me, that way I make only the most essential and needful ones, to check the base composition. For me sketches are rather a spur to the work, than really note.
I’m able to repaint the same illustration three or four time only because something I’m not sure. The work is finish when I am fully satisfied with the achieved result.”
