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

Science Fiction Sleeping Beauty ~ Fairy Tale Re-Envisioned

As I can't help but adore science fiction, I've created a blend of scifi with a bit of fairy tale flair.  Sleeping beauty is such a classic tale and it was so fun to transplant it to such a different, space-age era setting.

Best wishes for an the upcoming new year~!  Here's to an amazing 2014!

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.
