Manga Mondays ~ Zhi-huang Dong

Zhi-huang Dong aka Benkate, is a concept and storyboard artist. Originally from Beijing, China, she is currently living in Canada. In 2014 she started working as a character designer for Toronto-based animation company, Guru Studio.

Though often very sketchy, Dong’s illustrations still manage to convey all the information we need about a character. An over the shoulder smirk, a dropped face with a frown, or a slight touch of an ear, help us connect with them. Dong’s strong understanding of body language is demonstrated in her 2014 portfolio, which is packed with expressive and off-the-wall characters. That same succinct ability is also showcased in her very entertaining short animated storyboard.

For more Zhi-huang Dong goodness, I suggest following her on Tumblr and Facebook.
