Good afternoon Triskele Press!

This afternoon I introduce Karla Ortiz, a concept and illustrative freelance artist from San Francisco. She has done concept art and illustrations for various companies, some being Wizards of the Coast, Tor Books, and NCSoft. In addition to this, Karla is one of the six teachers at the Bali Illustration Workshop.

Here is a link to her profile on the workshop’s site.

For this week, I’ve decided to add a few of the illustrations Karla has done for the Wizards of the coast. I’m unsure if I’ve explained this or not, but there is a difference between concept art and illustrations. To quickly explain it, illustrations are much further detailed than concept art. You will understand below.

I do hope everyone enjoyed this week’s work. If you notice, I did use one of the illustrations for the featured image, but I feel like it would fit the front page nicer than a character. This usually will not happen, but I really wanted to show that specific image to everyone.

On her blog, Karla posted a very instructive and incredible step by step process of her piece, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts.

You may find it here!

Like usual, I will provide links to any of the most prominent locations to find her work.

Here are the links to her website, Blogspot, and Facebook.

For those who are wondering why I usually post artist’s Facebook pages, it’s because Facebook has recently become a haven for art. Since a user may follow another, it becomes possible to be updated on more recent work.

I hope everyone has a good night/morning!

See you next week,

-Ashanti
