I am a self taught Digital Artist and mother of 3 beautiful children ages 16, 7, and 1, my 7yr old is Autistic.
I have always been a bit artistic starting from a very early age. I started in Adobe Photoshop 7 and Paint Shop Pro 8 doing signatures & graphics for characters in popular online games (EQ & others) in the summer of ’03. I have tried my hand at several 3D rendering programs as well as Paint Shop Pro & Photoshop CS3, as well as many “traditional mediums” such as drawing, design, painting, 3d design, ceramics, and photography. My main tools are currently Photoshop & Poser though I do also own Carrara 8 and Vue 9.
I do take commissions, though not as often as I used to since I began running my Renderosity Shop over 2 years ago. If you are looking for backgrounds for your greeting cards, websets, artworks, photography, etc. you are in the right place. All of my designs are original, created by combining 3D elements, brushwork, and hand painted details. If it doesn’t have the name Sveva on it then its probably a knock off! I only sell at Renderosity, and every great once in a while I will sell 1 or 2 sets through Ebay. I have been a Top Seller at Renderosity now for over 3 years straight and I know and trust that my work is the best in the industry. You will not find such high-quality images/backgrounds from anyone else. I also create 3D Content such as my colorful hair line “Candy” which currently contains 175 hair colors, previously 150, for many of the new and popular 3D hairs available on various 3D content sites. I also create textures for 3D outfits and props, I have new line of makeup called Artistique which may be applied to any V4 character, I have another new line of 2D graphics entitled “GrafiX by Sveva” – I am a very busy girl! I love creating for my shop, and because I love it so much I have 9 tutorials for sale that will get you started in the digital arts field with Photoshop & Poser.
I use a small Intuos 4 Wacom Graphics tablet & pen. If you would like some custom work done please feel free to email me, email@example.com, and I would be happy to discuss it with you. I do offer image licensing for CD covers, magazines, book covers, etc. also if you are looking to purchase a license on a larger scale please contact Art Licensing www.artlicensing.com.
Prior to working with digital art I completed 2 years towards my BA in Fine Arts at St. Petersburg College in Florida. I studied in drawing, 3D Design, and Ceramics. Although I am not currently enrolled in any classes I do want to finish a degree in graphic arts eventually.
I am a Portal Fan, Myst Fan, Trekkie (Voyager is my fav), and a LOST Fan, I am also new to the world of Geocaching and I am having a blast with my husband and kids. www.geocaching.com
In my spare time I enjoy playing several video games (Diablo III, Starcraft, WoW, & Tera currently) and have been apart of WoW since beta. I can be found on the following US servers/factions in WoW:
- Deathwing – Pipa, 85 Shaman (Alliance)
- Deathwing – Cozmoe, 85 Death Knight (Alliance)
- Deathwing – Sydnie, 81 Rogue (Alliance)
- Shadowmoon – Spookypants, 85 Warlock (Horde)
- Deathwing – Sweetpickles, 71 Priest (Alliance)
- Deathwing – Ninelives, 34 Druid (Alliance)
- Shattered Halls – Berrylin, 24 Pally (Horde)
In July of 2007 I joined the “Community Relations Team” at www.deviantART.com as one of the Digital Art Gallery Moderators, and after 2 great years of volunteering I have taken off the hat and resigned at my position.
Thank you and if I can be of any help please email me.
