Finding depth and texture in digital painting

Often drawings become flat, if not muddled, when created in a digital medium. Yet artist Sergey Kritskiy manages to achieve great depth in her illustrations for Russian publication, Snob Magazine. Kritskiy's use of texture and stroke give her drawings a unique texture most often observed in traditional medium paintings. However, the artist is able to manipulate digital media in such a way that her work boasts both grand dimension and expressive strokes. Truly impressive.
