Landscape, cover art, issue 45, December 15, 2018

Maria Khrebtova (Yamarimaru) was born in 1994 at small Siberian city. For a long time, her main interest was only reading fantasy and sci-fi. She didn’t think about art at all until high school, where Maria had to create pictures for her school magazine. Soon communication with other experienced artists showed her the need for improvement, so she started to study different art styles by books and tutorials. Over time, drawing became her favorite subject, as well as physics. It determined the choice of profession – engineer. Maria uploaded her best artwork at international social media only after graduating from university. Maria still has a long way to the top of her art skill, but she sincerely hopes people will like the world made by her pen.
