Welcome to Ellen Million Graphic’s Featured Artist of the Week! Each week, we select an EMG artist and share their work and history. We hope you enjoy getting to see incredible artists this way.
This week, we turn the spotlight on Casandra Ciocian! Casandra joins us from Cluj Napoca, Romania, where she has worked with digital illustration and animation studio Deveo Media Illustration, providing artwork for children’s book series HUDSON AND ME by Nicola Preskett. Over at her Behance gallery, she features her work in background studies and fantasy illlustration. You can see that at this link.
Casandra has been a prolific portrait artist since 2008, and is responsible for over 100 portraits in EMG’s Portrait Adoption program! Her work spans characters of multiple races and ages and has been very popular, resulting in dozens of portraits placed with players. All of her portraits capture layers in their featured characters, providing adopters with prime story fodder. She’s also joined in on Sketch Fest weekends, and has contributed a coloring book page to Scheherezade’s Shimmy. (We gave away a free sample page from that book earlier this week! Scroll down to see it.)
We invite you to explore more at her pages over on EMG as linked below:
