Description
sup everyone.

I'd like to introduce my new Spring-Summer 2020 Collection.
I'd like to share some thoughts about it...

It took 5 month to design all of this assets. So I think some description is a nessesary
I would like to share my feelings and what i've been inspired by, during this period shortly.

At first, Id like to explain the motive behind my decision to throw this "collection" format.

The initial idea of it - is to avoid copycats stealing from me. So I thought that stacking designs into a collection would solve the issue.
You know, fashion, in general, inspires me a lot. I find it to be an important part of the "art".
So seing this direction, with "seasonal collections" in a fashion, inspires me to bring the same idea to the workshop and CS:GO.
Just like the fashion shows.

I had a whole bunch of time during COVID-19 pandemic. I've been homesick and I spend a lot of time being at home.
So I decided to spend this time productively.
Sometimes I've been working like crazy, sleeping only 4 hours a day, since I was very passionated to make designs.

My best friend for all of this time was the music I was listening to. Every day these songs drop some inspiration on me and they become parts of each design. Since the emotions that I feel while creating are reflected into my designs. XXXtentacion, Lil Peep, Juice Wrld, Scarlxrd, Zilla Kami...

Id like to talk more deeply about themes that I did in this collection:

Egypt
Once the map "Anubis" was released, it was a breath of a fresh air for me.
I really like how this map is designed, since I’ve felt this great atmosphere while I've been playing this map. I was telling my friends that I was enjoying playing Anubis map with them everyday. Basically that’s where the inspiration for this topic is coming from. I've learned a lot about ancient Egypt, while I've been producing this collection. I decide to pick interesting to me gods and main egyptian attributes to share as a part of my designs.

Cyberpunk
I had this idea in my mind for a very long. After seen Ghost In The Shell and Blade Runner movies it become a huge and main sources of inspiration for this collection.
The thing is that I wanted to create something new by using hacker ideas as transients in the cyberpunk world. This way I’ve mixed the traditional art with the underground idea.
I also used to experiment with some materials and transition ideas.

Ice
I love this water:

I truly think that this bottle design been in my mind for a long, since comparing it now with my designs, I see some clean inspiration.
Creating this designs was a challenge to me... Since it requires a hard realistic touch over materials and a huge amount layering, which is limited on the Source 1 engine.
A big inspirations for this theme was also "Game Of Thrones" series. Once my friend suggested to me sticking to the big "Wall" vibe, I followed to this suggestion along the whole path.
Id like also to mention great Warcraft cinematics - "Wrath of the Lich King":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCr7y4SLhck
I tried to put all of this inspiration into my design and share some dark vibe with you.

Greek
So far I've managed to make only one design for this collection.
And that was just the first touch since I really like the way it turned out, and I’d love to do some more.
Basically, my idea was to re-create ancient greek vase on a gun mixing it with stories from the Greek mythology.



Slavic collection
The idea for this collection has some story behind it, my girfriend found a cool artbook with Slavic mythology. While we've been looking through it, we both got an idea that it would turn out great to interpolate this symbols in my CS:GO guns collection.
Also, it was a great experience for me since I created this collection - with my friend Vuogle, who is an amazing illustrator, I’d say, one of the best I’ve met in my life.
Check his artstation:
https://www.artstation.com/vuogle

Hanami
This collection was my first workshop item idea. I finally decided to continue in this direciton, because I felt nostalgic while I've been thinking about my path as a workshop designer. For some items my friend Vuogle broad some ideas that improved their style.

Hunting (Borzoi)
It was requested by my mother and turned out really good. For years I’ve promised my mother that I would make this artwork.
It's based on her love to the hounds. She's been asking me to put our dog on the gun.
So I finally designed how to turn this idea into something looking cool to me.
I wanted to mix the classic hunting riffle with the borzoi dog as being main significant elemnt of this design collection.




Eventually, I’d like to point out some single ideas and inspirations around.
I’ve been expanding my previous collections as well: Universe, Fractions, Anime, Vampir...
This period was a great oppurtunity for me to practice my skill of creating realistic materials:
porcelain/ice/wood/metals/gold, etc.
All of these materials you can observe in this collection, and you can see how much my skill has grown.

-----------------------------------------
It was really great to work with my friend Maloo on his super creative ideas that were really mind-blowing.
To make art with Virtual, he's rendering style and design decisions are very great and smart.
And it was super cool making ice together with my mate - wonderland
And a huge thanks to Fuze for helping me with creating my presentation video.
-----------------------------------------

I'm going to take some break soon from my work in this direction now and focus a bit on my first music album release.
Stay tuned, you don’t know what to expect...neither do I.
