Lena Kroshilina (@66hellena66) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Lena is a digital artist with a vast horizon of subjects in front of her. There’s people, there are animals, backgrounds and environments, tv shows, original characters.. and it’s all kept together by a couple of everyday moments sketched or painted here and there.
I always love to browse profiles and when there are references to my favorite movies or TV shows I get excited because I want to find more so I end up scrolling the whole thing down to see if there’s another one. If I liked it I might even go backwards to check if I missed any, and this happened with Lena! To add to that when I see there’s probably a reference pic, I feel it but I can’t quite catch it, I don’t recall where it comes from but it looks like a movie scene, that’s when I look for all the details I can to Google something and see if I can discover if it was indeed a reference artwork or an original piece. Both results feel good anyways, so it’s a win win situation.
The first image is beautiful let’s start with the title which I think she nailed. The eyed “O” really makes you dive into the subject, it’s like those logo designs that stick in your mind forever. The birds themselves tho, wow! I especially love the one on the bottom right corner, sweet and lovely, it makes me laugh a bit to me it really looks like a real “dumby” face that only owls can have, so cute!
The second image is obviously Beth! Have you seen “The Queen’s Gambit”? I liked the mini-series even tho I only know the basic moves of chess, I think it was cool. The scene is a crucial one and it’s one houndred percent recognizable so good job there. I love the effect she gave to the corners of the artwork here and the big green pills bouncing make it perfect!
