    More drawings. I've been too busy and too tired recently and finally got a moment to draw. Sorry, nothing nearly original this time, just more dragon/fantasy stuff:

    Thanks! It's a relatively simple work though.

    Another drawing. From beyond:

    That's a very nice Hochspannungsleitung, and a very nice sketchbook as well!

    Thanks! Regarding the Hochspannungsfreileitung. Leaving artistic concerns aside I can say that while the place is imaginary the depiction is technically accurate - the line is depicted exactly how it was back then (right down to the types of towers used) and the construction process, too. I plan to do more historically-themed drawings on telegraph and powerlines when I have time. Among the planned themes are Lauchhammer-Gröditz-Riesa line (1911), Bogorodsk-Moscow (1915), Rhein-Westfälische Leitung (1924) and other historical things.

    That sounds oddly interesting. Why are you so interested in telegraph and powerlines?

    That's a hobby though I happen to cooperate with some of local museums on this topic. I'm interested in general history and history of industrialization but specialize on transmission lines which are an important element of industrial developement. Some even happen to be true miracles of engineering for their times (Indo-European telegraph line of XIX'th century for example). So this (generally little-known) bit of history is worth preserving. There's an irrational element in all this - they look beautiful against the landscape (a pretty distorted view of 'beautiful' to some but still).

    Wow, your pencil drawings look great! I especially like how you shade/crosshatch, which really help show the forms and contours in your art.

    Greetings. Haven't had a chance to draw alot recently, to say the least. But here are a pair of new things.

    Very small sketch depicting the path of Indo-European telegraph line (1870-1931) in Caucasus mountains, now abandoned and overgrown.

    A plate summarizing research on the technical side of Indo-European line. Stylized after illustrations from old technical books.

    Russian AC freight locomotive VL60. VL stands for Vladimir Lenin. These simple and reliable locomotives were built in 1957-67. The picture portrays it as of 1990's - 2000's.

    Glad you like those. The perspective is still somewhat off but I try to work on that.

    Here are some dragons I've done for a collaborative work on Tolkien's universe (my interpretations, mostly not to canon):

    It's been quite a while since I've updated my sketchbook... tough schedule and all. Here are some sketches and complete drawings I've done in the past several months.

    A series of illustrations done for a telecom museum showing telegraph insulators of various early designs:
