Venya Drkin by CG-Warrior
Venya Drkin

Venya Drkin  11 June 1970 - 21 August 1999,  real name -Alexander Litvinov, was a Russian bard poet, artist and writer of fairy tales. He wrote over three hundred songs. As usual in the bard genre, the songs bear deep and imaginative lyrics, but, less commonly, are also very melodic. During the late 90's, he performed some of his songs with accompaniment of other musicians, notably violinist Veronica Belyayeva.

Although Venya died in 1999, his music is still gaining more acknowledgement as the time passes. This can be attributed to the fact that before Venya's death, just two of his albums were released, and even those were distributed in very small number of copies. He also never played in front of a large audience; most of his public performances were in music festivals and in house concerts.

Venya Drkin died of cancer (Hodgkin's lymphoma) on 21 August 1999.

I would love to feature this work in my freshly opened group. Its specialised on high detailed historical/fantasy military illustrations and it will host only the finest deviations and will gather some of the most talented artists.

I sent the request. You have to confirm it.

You are also warmly invited to join.

Great gallery, and love your style of art - there's something very Slavic about it, some inner darkness that can't really be found anywhere else.

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!

I notice you’re from Russia! Loads of history there! I want to see Moscow

someday and I especially want to see St Petersburg! I’ve heard that it’s gorgeous!

One of the things that’s always impressed me about Russia is how BIG it is and how much variety it has.


I've found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don't know much about their own country, much less anyone else's.  :(


I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world. Recently I’ve started a private initiative; If I notice someone on DA  is from another country, If I've done their country I let them know. Its my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

This update is about your home! Consider it a birthday gift!…


GOD bless you now and always.
