    Maria Menshikova and NOH/WAVE/ACADEMY have joined forces to provide an online workshop free of charge, or by donation!
    During this COVID-19 pandemic, we want to make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity to learn how to create art. We want to do our part to give back to a creative community that has given us so much support over the years. We have an opportunity to be there for one another, and to inspire current / future creatives to beam some light on a dark period of human existence. Our hope is to be able to help others during this time period. Thank you all so much. Enjoy the online workshop with Maria Menshikova.

    "In this workshop I share my whole process of creating a digital portrait from start to finish by utilizing Photoshop as a tool for creating artwork.

    It includes a full breakdown of how I create one of my illustrations from the sketching to rendering phase, to adding color and textural elements, and then to applying adjustments in Photoshop.

    I also share some tricks, tips, and thoughts about my artistic process. One example of this is by showing the viewer how to use watercolor, and acrylic textures to give depth, and sophistication to a piece.

    I hope this workshop will give you the tools you will need to complete your own digital masterpiece!" - Maria Menshikova

    Maria Menshikova

    Maria Menshikova is an illustrator and visual artist primarily focusing on digital media. She experiments with traditional media such as acrylic and watercolor, and incorporates textural elements to give her work a more tangible look and feel. Subtle visual metaphors in her work deepen the psychological aspects, and act as a funnel to convey a message linked to the subconscious. She explores emotion, conflict, and nostalgia throughout sensual portraiture and atmospheric scenes, always with a touch of mystery and sometimes chthonic, folklore motifs.

    Born in Russia, she is a self-taught artist that began her career at the age of 14. She then gathered a vast amount of experience working at various design and advertising agencies as a creative illustrator in Russia, and Netherlands.

    She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

    Her work has been nominated for an ADC Young Guns award. She's been published, and featured by New Republic, Slanted Magazine, Creator’s project, Design Collector, Supersonic Art, “Russian illustration” book, POW!WOW! Worldwide etc.

    She has shown in galleries internationally including exhibitions in Tokyo, and Moscow.
