My name is Jaana Heiska and I'm a freelance artist. I did inhouse art for game companies doing mobile and facebook games before going freelance, and continue doing similar art on freelance basis.
I love doing game art, but I want to expand my market and start getting illustrative work as well. I'd love to do young adult book covers, game cards and box art.
Some studies from life.
Hey Jaana, your style really does compliment your ambition to be a cover illustrator. I think pieces 4,5 and 6 are your strongest pieces by far, they seem to have just that little more polish. I like the 3rd piece but id like to see the more a-symmetry and movement in the figure. but i suppose the piece is about calmness so it might be for the best. maybe if the character was rotated into space more. anyway that's a novices opinion, keep it up.
P.S - the sub surface scattering and skin treatment in 4 are just beautiful, bravo!
