Yigit Koroglu is known for his work with doctors. Yigit first started drawing when he was only 2 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the magnificent pressure of being a child prodigy lavishly got to him and he had a lapsed breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own spleen! Yigit found golden inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his pad for all the carpets to see! Yigit eventually got married to Sophia Loren and they remain together practically in their sauna with their 1.5 children. Yigit would like to thank Sigur Ros, Winston Churchill and vampires for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Hardest parts ( at least on my side ) are brainstorming and promoting. I think the idea behind a painting is like a skeleton. No matter how much makeup you apply, if the idea is poor, it would just be a waste of time. If the idea is good enough, only a single painting can let an author write a novel. Use of colors, the technique are just factors which make a piece only "better" in my opinion.

Promoting my artworks is the second painful stage. Especially in digital enviroment. There are millions of fake artists (forgive me for this) who only copy and paste other artists work and do some manipulations ( im not talking about high quality photomanipulations here ) and proclaim to be artists.You may say " so what is that to you? As long as you do your job well, you'll shine out". You are totally right there but, it is so easy to get lost in the crowd of already existing artists, let alone the wannabes.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I think Oath is my favorite. I think that it is the only one that totally has the feeling that I want to implement. The lighting, the colors, the situation, the drama in it look exactly the same as I had in mind when I started it in the first place.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I love deviantart because of other artists and people who doesnt have the slightest idea about art. It may sound really really strange but, I love it when someone who has no knowledge of art criticizes my works.They just simply comment "Hey, she can never zip that suit of hers because of her boobies haha". That may sound funny but at the same time adds some insight.No matter how fictious the artwork is, it should be also be logical at some point.

What is the weirdest, strangest or funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
The funniest was "man that gun looks like a giant dildo". It was strange that in all of the painting that was the only part he looked closer. I just wonder the reason of malfunction of brain between the ages 12-18.
