Welcome to my website! I'm Tanya Nikonova, an Ukrainian illustrator and comic book artist based in Troya (Kyiv).Troy seemed visually interesting to director Gordon von Steiner and cinematographer Stuart Weinkoff. They even filmed the movie "Troy: The Dormitory". They say that there are similar places near New York called "inland places". For example, Brooklyn has a very similar vibe to Troy....

  • I don't know the page size. What to do?

    If you don't know the file size you need, I will use the standard A4 format (2480х3508 px).

  • How can I write a description for an digital art?

    You can vividly describe the characters and the environment. If details of clothing or appearance are important to you, please describe them too. Give me pictures that will help me understand what you want.

  • What additional services do you have?

    I can do for you: 1) editorial and advertising illustrations; 2) digital line art for a coloring book, etc. 

  • When do I have to pay for commercial rights?

    If you intend to use my illustration for an audience that will directly or indirectly bring you money, you must pay me for the commercial rights.

  • Are you flexible in pricing?

    Every project is different. Write to me and we'll talk about your unique needs.


  • What additional services do you have?

    1) I can design a character, for a comic book. 2) I can draw a storyboard for you if you don't have a script. I have flexible prices because each case is unique.

  • How can I write a description for a comic?

    You must have a script. This is a description of what should be drawn in each comic panel on a particular page. If you do not have a script, then at least you should have a full text. In that case, I will charge you extra for additional storyboarding without a script plan.

  • I don't have a reference. It's enough?

    It's great that you have a description, but I need to know what your characters should look like. Please try to find pictures that will help me draw your comic.

  • I don't know the page size. What to do?

    If you don't know the print size, I can recommend you use the standard comic book page template: 7.48x11.023 inches, ready to print at 350 dpi.

    PLEASE contact me first so we can work out what you wanted. I can work very quickly if the order is clear! It also informs you of my availability so you can expect when I work on your order. Don't worry, most of the time I deliver them on time!
