    I recently stumbled on the wonderful work of Toerning through one of her few, but very useful, tutorials. Her tutorials are filled with tips about lighting, perspective, composition and colour, and well worth a gander.

    Often working with traditional mediums such as ink, acrylics or gouache. Toerning’s knowledge of lighting and colour really stands out. And her marrying of both traditional and digital processes create some stunning results, as seen in her Selkie pieces.

    To see more of Toerning’s work, check out her DeviantArt and Tumblr.

    Shaun O’Neil has that anime style that we have all seen many times before however, xshaunx is clearly not your “run of the mill” anime artist. He illustrates with great humor and his dynamic and intense characters really leap of the screen. He currently storyboards for Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra.

    Shaun O’Neil also has a few awesome self published sketchbooks available to purchase via Lulu. These sketchbooks are a collection of preliminary works, abandoned projects, work in progress and are well worth checking out.

    Under the nick xshaunx, he has a fantastic presence on deviantart

    Christopher Lee is a designer and illustrator from Sacramento. After graduating in 2006, he moved to California where he worked as an Art Director for Vapors Magazine, then moving on to motion graphics studio ‘Buck’, spending three years plying his trade there. In October of 2009 he braved the dangerous and exciting world of freelance illustration, and has never looked back. Christopher has also designed some vinyl toys, as well as setting up greetings card and paper goods company ‘The Birds and the Beasts’ with his girlfriend.

    Christopher Cunetto is currently living and working from Washington DC. In his own words:

    “My style is saturated, narrative, and figurative – imagery that plays with conventions of seriousness, melodrama, and camp.”

    His techniques range from quick-mark, bold colour fashion illustration to fully rendered work created using coloured pencils. His clients include Washington Post Express, Metro Weekly, Fashion Fights Poverty and Columbia Books.

    Christopher also co-founded the art collective ‘Boys Be Good’, and after checking out their online zines, I thought they had some great content that I’d never come across before.
