18th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards Video (& Drawings!)

There was so much happening around March that I had to delay some announcements until April! That said, the 18th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards intro was super fun this year, inviting industry studio artists worldwide to provide ink drawings (quick sketches) for their video.  I am happy to have had drawing(s) that made it into the video, along with many other wonderful studio artists!  The whole event had neat motion graphics throughout, created by Noodle House, featuring the drawings in motion.

These are some drawings that I did for the sketchbook, that while went unused (from what I saw) I thought may be fun to post here.  They were all drawn traditionally with pen and ink, with no underdrawing.  Enjoy! :)

 

Also, some of my works can now be found featured on a new site, showcasing the best contemporary female illustrators and concept artists working within Fantasy and Science Fiction.  Be sure to check out Women In Fantastical Art when you have a chance, as a lot of wonderful artists reside there!


The video can be seen on youtube here.

Cheers,

Marisa

Meet Meep! The teacup monster.

Meep wants to say hello!

He is a ferocious teacup monster that adores being friendly and is oft misunderstood.  He has this unfortunate habit of climbing in peoples' coffee and tea when they're not looking and making it his own.  This little guy was started over inktober and I decided to give him a little bit more love.  Hope you like!

Also, CTNX is coming up soon!  I'll be down in the LA area for the week of the expo, so I hope to see some of you there! :)

The Wanderer Skeletal Creature Concept

creature concept skeletal flying

The wanderer is a skeletal creature that drifts silently through the nights of a blood moon.  Inspired by the one we were to have had during October.  Was anyone able to see it, by chance?

Best wishes for the upcoming week!

White Wolf painting for Art Collaboration

Inspired Wolf

This is a piece recently completed for a collaboration, along with many fellow artists and friends from the Imaginism Workshop (and many others).     I chose to do a piece inspired by Moro from Princess Mononoke, as seen above.

About the Collaboration A bit about the collab:  It is in honor of the Studio Ghibli.  It can be found in its entirety at http://ghibliladiescollab.tumblr.com/.  Also individual submissions can be viewed on twitter via #GhibliLadiesCollab

Artist Spotlight! As there are many people I know that participated in this with me, I thought it would be fun to do an artist spotlight this week!  These are some of my fellow Imaginism Workshop artist friends who were involved with the collab! Be sure to check out their sites and say hi! :)
