My name is Kirill Nadtochiy. I was born in Ukraine and moved to U.S. at the age of nine. Since I was a little kid I really enjoyed exploring different concept ideas through sketching. This artistic side has always been more than just a passing interest. However, it's not until recently that I have discovered the wonderful world of concept art and I must say, I like it enough that I am seriously considering a career change. However, I have no formal training in drawing or painting. I would really like to take some classes from TAD and so I would also like to submit this work as my portfolio for the TAD scholarship.

The hardest part about being self-taught is understanding your mistakes and knowing how to improve so I am looking forward to having some feedback on my work.

All my progress is kept track on-line at
