Presenting the work of Columbian 3D artist Qarlos Quintero. Graduate of Jorge Tadeo Lozano University, Quintero has worked professionally as 2D and 3D illustrator since 2008. Currently he is a Concept Artist and 3D Modeler at mobile games developers, Brainz.
Quintero’s personal project Arya and Nymeria really stands out for me. It is a blending of both his 2D and 3D styles, allow the forms to look flatter and be more expressive with simplified shapes. You can find a healthy dose of more Game of Thrones inspired art, among other work, in Quintero’s ArtStation portfolio. You can also find Qarlos Quintero on Tumblr and Society6.
It is always heartening to see younger artist with a high level of understanding and skill. Both of which stand out of Celine Kim’s illustrations.
Living in Pasadena, Kim is a student at the Art Center College of Design studying Visual Development. She is also working on a personal project based on the Norwegian fairy tale East of the Sun and West of the Moon, which has already produced some stunning artwork. She is definitely an illustrator to keep an eye on.
