Sergey's original works include compositions entitled "Ruslan and Ludmila" (1998), "Astronomer" (1999), and "Spring" (1999). He uses traditional techniques of Palekh miniature painting, including tempera and acrylic gold paints. Antonov prefers to paint on a theme of fairy-tales.

The most important aspects in his works is to reveal the theme and image. When starting a new piece, the artist's main aim is to create a work that looks artistically designed. In his patterns this master likes to use a warm color range. Sergey finishes a work on a miniature, when he regards it completed and there is nothing to add to it. The distinctive feature of his works is his aspiration to exceed the limits of Palekh painting canon.
