My name is Ksya, I'm a girl from Russia.
At the moment I'm working in Russian small game development company as a 2D artist but I'm going to change my place of work by April 2012.
I've used to be completely self taught artist but now I'm visiting an art class.
Please give me some crits and advices and help me to become a better artist! ^__^
