I am very attentive to detail and strong at realistic painting. I will never take the job if I feel I am not able to cope with the given task. In short: I am an easy to work with, take direction well and flexible in terms of payment. Experience: - book illustrations - book cover art/design - banners - portrait painting - children's books - posters for horror movies and books (I like dark stuff!!) - photo editing (fashion, product retouch, creative photo manipulation etc etc.) Strong points: - fully texturised photorealistic painting (I can paint from zero) -I preserve the full range of colours and shades so that the artwork is fully editable after it's done. I.e. b/w conversion will never reveal overlighting and black holes. - I fight against fuzzyness and overblurring - I have a good eye for colour and composition - light-hearted personality - I respond quickly, politely and respectfully,always warn my clients about my personal issues. - I ask MANY questions so that the artwork's done perfectly and suiting my client. Please contact me if you feel I am worth working with. Respectfully to all my would-be clients, Polina.

I have a wide variety of multimedia skills from video and audio editing to logo design and photo editing. My primary focus is on front-end web design for small businesses. My platform of choice is WordPress due to it flexibility and popularity. I can build just about any style website with a custom WordPress theme. I tend to choose projects that I'm interested in. It's important to me to create things I'm proud of. I try to be clear in my communications and I try to work closely with my clients to create something that the feel fits them well. I am not the cheapest option on oDesk. There are people in the world willing to work for nearly free just to get a start. Their skill level often match I will never be the low bidder on a job. I just apply my going rate and work to create something my clients with be happy with. I do this for a living. I'm not a "rock star", "ninja" or "guru". I'm a designer. This is a jobs that requires experience, honesty, insight, skill and good communication to do properly. Some advise if you don't hire me.. There are good and bad ways to do things even if the result is the same. The two biggest mistakes I would warn anyone about is modifying a theme that will be updated (and wipe out the changes) and working on a live server. I code on my home workstation, demonstrate on my staging server.. then publish to the live server(your actual website) when everything is working properly! Don't let any developer work on your live site. You don't want your customers seeing a server error.
