About me

Dmitri LINEKING Demidenko - awesome vector graphic artist. Would you like to be a vectorized?

My name is Dmitri Demidenko, also known as LINEKING, and I’m happy to welcome you to my website lineking.ru. I’m a professional vector graphics artist from Russia and am proud to be officially honored by Corel Corporation as one of the few CorelDRAW masters in the world. Here on my site you can discover interesting information about vector graphics and about me as well. You can explore my artwork and learn about past, present, and future exhibitions.

BIO (artist biography)
Contemporary art is often associated with degradation and depression. It is often colored with negative emotions and often crosses into the realm of morality, exalting mediocrity, stupidity, and insanity, and represents itself as unique ‘talent’. Allow us to introduce you to its opposite: Dmitry LINEKING Demidenko. A Russian artist born in 1986 in the Russian Far Eastern city of Spassk Dal’ny, Dmitry is almost completely self-taught. In an incredibly short time, only five years, he has risen from working in a small printing company to become an internationally recognized leader in the art of vector graphics. He is likewise the author of several vector techniques such as watercolor and raster graphics simulation.
 Since March, 2014 LINEKING’s art represent CorelDRAW software worldwide, his works reveal the amazing capabilities of the software. His vector art SpeedPAINT: Peace&Music is the intro (welcome video) of CorelDRAW X7 version. Founder of the first Tutorials market about working with computer graphics, named CorelTuts.

At the start of carrier LINEKING is experimented with techniques of the “vector” from the “line art” (whence went his artist name) to use “meshes”, but in the end he stopped drawing “shapes” (semi-transparent objects, drawn manually, that mimic the real brush). This technique is extremely difficult to learn and requires a lot of time and concentration, but that’s what makes it unique and special. Characteristic features of artworks by Dmitry – a set of objects that construct the final image, layer by layer being placed on each other – to achieve the desired shade or color transition.

Above all else, LINEKING is a portraitist, finding his greatest fascination in the human face. In order to draw the person’s soul forth from their facial expressions, he avoids being distracted by the external aspects of the image, doesn’t get carried away with realism or obsess about unnecessary extras. Rather, he carefully balances his working process right on the knife’s edge between nonchalance and perfectionism. His work is immediately recognizable for its technique of execution and the artist’s special palette of bright and warm colors. According to LINEKING, the most interesting aspect of a portrait is the artist’s ability to grasp the subject’s unique personal nature and pass it on to the viewer, to express the individual’s temperament with no additional support from a detailed body or complex surrounding environment. In fact, background visuals often distract the viewer, which is why LINEKING prefers to focus his work on the face.

Having already achieved a high level of career success, including victories in various international and local competitions, LINEKING considers it his responsibility to promote the art and technique of vector graphics. He does so not only by participating in exhibits all over the world, but by organizing exhibits himself, giving other artists an opportunity to show their art to the public.

 

What is Vector Graphics?

Vector graphics is akin to a mosaic, where each element (smear) – is created manually. Digital painting vector – is elitist art available by very small number of artists, of which around the world there is not more than few hundreds. Unlike oil painting digital picture will never deteriorate by environmental influences, as the electronic original file and also will keep original look and smear drawn by artist through the centuries. Such picture can be transferred on the canvas, or to any other material. Moreover, a significant advantage of vector graphics is a consistent quality when zooming – even if you want to print vector graphics on macro surface or fantastic 1000 meters, the quality remains the same.
