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

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!

Explorer Concept Art and News Announcements!

explorer, female, concept art

Hello!

First off, it is hard to believe it has been well over a month since the last post.  To make up for it, there is an extra special announcement from today!  :)

The game we have been working on at Hidden Path Entertainment is officially launched! Some info about it can be found here: http://www.gamepedia.com/news/206-new-windborne-trailer-and-steam-launch

Also, I have an art piece on display at Vision 5 Gallery through the remainder of February.  If you're local to Seattle, the hours can be found on the website.  Come check it out, there are some great fellow artists' work there as well!  http://www.digitalartfestival.com/what.html

I've included a bit of some character work I've been doing recently.  I hope to have more to show shortly, but for now welcome "The Explorer."  She is saucy with a bit of attitude and certainly has an appetite for Exploration and Adventure.

Cheers,

Fantastical Creature Concept

Fantasy Aquatic Humanoid Based Creature Concept.  This was quite awesome to work on, had fun blending hybrids of multiple sea critters.  They are all so interesting to begin with!  Enjoy!

Also, it was so wonderful to attend CTNX and have the opportunity to see some old friends and meet new ones as well!  For those who were able to make the trip, I hope you had a wonderful time.  Looking forward to seeing you all next year!

Inktober 2013 - Check!

October has come and gone!  This year I participated in Inktober, and have included some of those ink drawings below!  : ) It was really wonderful to be able to get back to traditional and step away from the digital realm for a bit.  As much as I love computers and technology, it certainly is nice to have the traditional pen (or brush) to paper feel on occasion!

The originals were drawn fairly small (half sheets or less) and modified via my Instagram account, marzie_e  so I've opted to show the end result as thumbnails below.
