AzMargo Portraits

Olga Rudakova is a digital art artist also knows as AzMargo. Her digital portraits of famous people will captivate your sight. It was a pleasure for us to take an interview with AzMargo who shared some interesting facts of her biography. We wish you a pleasant reading of AzMargo success story and viewing of her incredible digital portraits.

AP: Tell us something about yourself.

OR: My name is Olga Rudakova. The nickname is AzMargo in World Wide Web. And I spend more time there than in real life. My zodiac sign is Aquarius and all that is inherent to the sign can be attributed to me: easy madness, the ability to look ahead and boundless optimism.

AP: Your first works. What did they look like?

OR: I began to paint since kindergarten. And I do not remember my first works. Basically, they were trees and princesses. When I was 8-9 years old I watched a Japanese cartoon and fell in love with it. I was drawing, rubbing and copying the pictures with my favorite characters. I remember how we gathered together with my friends and were drawing, talking and exchanging ideas. At that moment I was inspired by my friends and by the image I attributed to them.

AP: Do you have any formal education in your sphere or were you self-taught?

OR: I am self-taught. I try to learn from different artists. Specifically, I like the work of many artists, but particularly I highlight such artists as Claude Arnulphy, Orest Kiprensky, Ivan Slavinsky, but the works of Polish artist Franciszek Żmurko are especially close to me. I really like the work of Alphonse Mucha. You can learn so much from them. And those artists not only teach you, but also inspire.

AP: What genre are your works? Can they be characterized as unique and unusual?

OR: Genre of works? Most likely it is a classic portrait. Frankly speaking, I am ill-versed in this. Actually, I do not paint in any one genre. I love to paint cartoon characters and portraits. Sometimes I paint landscapes. I can say I have not yet determined which genre of work can be attributed to me. One thing is certain: I love when everything is beautiful. When I feel good, I like to paint portraits of men and beautiful women. I like to search zest and capture their sparkles in their eyes, I like to search zest in moving lips and to reflect the purity of their skin shining. I do not consider my works original or unusual, but each of them is a part of me. And that’s why they are unique.

AP: What kind of equipment and techniques do you use to create them?

OR: Primarily I work with computer graphics. I use a tablet and Corel Painter software to create portraits. When I draw sketches I use a pencil and eraser.

AP: Would you consider yourself as an expert in this sphere?

OR: I do not consider myself a professional. I’d rather call myself an amateur. Professional – a person who has made his knowledge of his profession. I do not think that I have so much knowledge and skills that would be called professional. I learn from different masters, I am inspired by other people’s works and I learn something new from the fact that I liked. I analyze a lot.

AP: What is your success formula?

OR: Talent and skills are needed to continually to be evolved, you should never stand still. You must learn something new, improve already acquired knowledge and skills. I am still very young and I do not know what future plans to build. Maybe I’ll paint more and perhaps become a photographer or I’ll start making dolls. And I’ll do it for as long as it brings me pleasure. At the moment I have one goal: to enjoy my works. It means I will continue improving my skills, so while looking at my work I would be very pleased. I do not participate in exhibitions and competitions, and I do not advertise my services. I look for the models on my own. Although I have an account of freelance worker.

AP: Is there someone who helps you in your creativity?

OR: I am always supported by my husband. He creates all the conditions for me so that I can develop as a person and as an artist. And my daughter is the best critic of my works. Children feel much better color and mood of the images on paper.
