    Evon Freeman is a character designer and storyboard artist. Currently at Walt Disney Animation Studios she is working as a prop and effects designer on Daron Nefcy’s Star and the Forces of Evil. Prior to Disney, Freeman worked at Nickelodeon Animation Studios on the TV series The Legend of Korra and Monsters VS. Aliens. She was also the character designer and storyboard artist for the Korra prequel web series Republic City Hustle.

    Freeman’s journey into the world of art is actually rather unique. Her interest was bred out of boredom and circumstance. Spending quite a lot of time in Taiwan as a child and unable to play outside due to it extremely humid summers. Freeman bought some how-to-draw books and started doodling. In High School she took all the art classes she could, pottery, photography, art, and computer graphics. Then went on to study graphic design and multimedia at California State University-East Bay. After landing a job at Electronic Arts she applied for the Visual Development program at the Academy of Art. Freeman’s inspiring thirst to learn and grow is not slowing down either, she has also been taking storyboarding classes at the Concept Design Academy.

    The best place to see more of Evon Freeman is her regularly updated Tumblr, but you can also find more of her work on Blogger and DeviantArt.

    Kyonghwan Kim is a Korean digital concept artist. His work, which often includes reimagined medieval characters or anthropomorphic cats, is simply stunning. Kim’s costume design is full of layers and often dramatic but, for me, it is his painterly rendering that really sets his work apart. Each and every texture is careful considered and the details he adds to his foliage would make the Pre-Raphaelites proud.

    Kyonghwan Kim recently released his first art book, details of which you can find here, and to see more of his work head over to his website.

    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.
