Who am I?

My name is Polina (aka Darrana) and I’m a self-taught artist who has been working in the mobile game industry for almost 10 years. My childhood dream was to become an artist, and now I’m on a mission to help others fulfill their artistic dreams.

For the past many years, I have gathered a lot of useful art resources that helped me get where I am today. I’ve guided and assisted many artist friends and colleagues in developing their skills.


I also have ADHD and my whole family have either ADHD or Autism or both. So if you struggle with your neurodivergence, I can give you a lot of working tools.

Whether you want to break into the industry, transition from traditional to digital media, or simply need some extra motivation and accountability to improve your skills, I can help you.

Yes, absolutely. It won’t be that convenient for you to ask questions, but I can record feedback, answer questions and send you a private link.

I’m located in Stockholm, Sweden. So my time zone is UTC+2

Because I have very limited time, it is possible that all spots can be sold out. However, you can always join a waiting list, and I will notify you as soon as an opening becomes available and you are next on the list.

I’m always happy to answer some small questions or give a quick feedback, but only if I have some time and energy to spare.

Mentorship is fully online. We have contact through email or WhatsUp/Telegram.
We book meetings through Google Calendar
We have meetings through Zoom or Google Meet.

If you are located in Stockholm and really want us to meet in person, we can do that.

Absolutely! My program is not restricted to any specific media or software. I’m focusing on the drawing fundamentals and the psychology behind motivation and learning.
However, if you are seeking advice on traditional media techniques, I won’t be able to help you since I’m mainly a digital artist.

Absolutely! You don’t have to have any previous drawing expirience to apply for mentorship. The only thing that you have to have is willigness to learn and understand that this journey is going to take time.

I’m against unethical generative AI. Howerver I’m not against technology itself and I will not personally judge you for using AI as long as you are not using it commercially or training models on specific artists.
If you are using AI as a reference or inspiration, I am okay with that and will not reject your application because of it.

No. Anybody can apply as long as they have willingness to learn, access to the internet, microphone, paper and pencil.
