Gemini by straechav
Gemini
Well, it's done. It started as freaky as it gets, but somehow it kind of got toned down as the work and the concept matured a little. The first pass was incredibly stark and incredibly weird looking thing. I do admit, I've gotten kind of used to this piece by now, so I don't actually know if it still looks weird or not. But at least I get the impression it's not quite as stark as before.

Gemini: A WIP Detail by straechav
Gemini: A WIP Detail
This is just a 100% shot of my current piece in the work. It's not quite done, but it's very close. I don't usually do this here on Deviantart (that is, post unfinished pieces), but I figured I might as well do it because the post at Tumblr was by necessity scaled down and not actually 1:1 shot. 

So, yeah, enjoy the surrealism and weirdness.

And yes, I am decidedly crazy for doing crosshatching all over the piece. I just like the look, so let me get a carpal tunnel syndrome in peace, alright? ;)

Exorcism by straechav
Exorcism
So, yeah, I did a background. And someone said to me "trying surrealism for a change?" when seeing this, and I was confused. I was under the impression I was a surrealist artist 100% of the time. Admittedly, most of the time it's buried under all the horror and other freakishness. But I've always considered my art more of as "dark surreal" than horror.

But hey, just my opinion.

Breathe
So, I've been told this is my most "normal" and "sane" picture I've ever done. I shouldn't need to say it, but I'll say it anyway. This was an experiment. As usual. I think most of my pieces are experiments of one sort or another.

Also, are those tentacles or seaweed? You choose.

Well... what can I say? It's just one of those things that popped in to my head.

I'm an artist with natural inclination towards darker subjects, hence I ended up being an Horror artist. My love for surreal and weird has bled into my style lately and thus I would classify my artistic style as "Surreal Horror".

I currently use mostly 3D Sculpting as my main means of creating art, but I always use digital painting techniques to both texture the models and to add details and finishing touches to the final render.

In the future, I'm trying to combine 3D, Digital Painting and Natural mediums in to one cohesive workflow. Right now I am still lacking convenient means to slotting Acrylics/Gouache in to my workflow. But that's under the works.

I've been doing this since I was 15, so I've had some practice.

I do custom art, but very rarely. I mostly sell my art as "stock art" to people who want to use my pieces (non-exclusively). If you want a custom piece of art from me, be prepared to pay because I don't do custom pieces for cheap.
