My name is Renee and I am looking for work as a graphic novelist or book illustrator. My look is stylized and child / YA friendly with an emphasis on world creation and character design. For narration I use a blend of western and eastern styles that emphasizes character focused pacing without losing sight of the plot.
I love designing architecture, costumes, characters, anything to make a world feel immersive and interesting.
I sketch, draw, and ink by hand then import in to photoshop for color or tone, and lettering. I use both CS5 and Manga Studio to get the look I want.
Here are a few examples of my work:
I also sculpt maquettes in my spare time. I use super sculpey firm and magic sculpt over aluminium armature. Sometimes I use kneadatite, but only for little additions.
These sculpts were specifically for the comic posted above.
these are only a few examples and others can be found at http://www.viistar.com and in progress shots at http://www.facebook.com/pages/SaintM...25349277530876
