Murder by straechav
Murder
I was working on a multiple pieces and I had bunch of ideas in progress. But I did like working on the wings of the last piece (web of regrets) so... here you go, more wings. For those who don't know, the name is a reference to the fact that you can call a flock of crows a "murder".

Web of Regrets by straechav
Web of Regrets
So... yeah. Things got out of hand? Basically, this was meant to be a very simple piece, but then it ended up being a rather epic experiment. I think it looks pretty cool, and I definitely should revisit this approach with the wings. Maybe a series of "angels"? Hmm... Well, you people tell me your opinions.

I quite like it. Despite the flaws that are there, which I can't be bothered to fix because it would seriously double the time I worked on this. I'll just rather take it as a learning experience and move on.

Bed of tentacles by straechav
Bed of tentacles
Apparently I forgot to post this here when I did it. Oops? anyway, long story short: It was an retrospective look at the old tropes of mine (i.e. tentacles out of mouth and eyes, etc) and also an offhand experiment to see how far you can push "good taste" and still avoid gore. Result: Pretty damn far.

Relinquish by straechav
Relinquish
My best piece in a while. It's, like most of my pieces these days, based on a 3D sculpture. But it also has massive amount of digital painting and even some watercolors and whatnot. I tried to blend them all in more or less seamlessly, so it shouldn't be obvious what part is what. But in the end, I am very satisfied with this piece. It's also the first time I did a full on profile. I generally end up doing the boring 3/4 view or some variation.

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.
