    I am a professional Storyboard Artist and Illustrator with several years of experience in these fields. Regarding storyboard art, I've got a vast knowledge of the cinematic language and versatile 2D skills that make me realize storyboards for animation and live-action in different styles and levels of detail depending on the work's needs. I've also got some bits of 3D skills that may always come in handy! I've also got some concept art skills that are really useful in storyboarding. Currently, I work mainly with Photoshop and Toon Boom Storyboard Pro. During my work, I like to have a pretty rational and reasoned approach when illustrating everything, whether it is Storyboarding, Concept Art, or Illustration. This helps me to deliver very solid artwork but non only that. In fact, this gives me a lot of versatility in terms of style, which can be adapted from project to project very effectively. Why choosing me: ✅ Customer care: I will give you more than expected to achieve a delighted client. ✅ Professional artist: Every aspect of the work will be discussed together and approved by you, and I will justify in detail any suggestions of mine in close communication. ✅The keys of my work method are to communicate frequently with the client to ensure we are on the same page and provide clear and detailed ideas from the drafts to the final artwork. This method helps us save time and have a clear picture of the job as we go through it.
