Margherita Castello (@_leevolt_) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Margherita is an illustrator from Italy, she creates fantasy characters and is a visual storyteller. Her style is pretty consistent cause most of the times there are a few traits in the colors and the lines that follow a pattern and make it super easy to recognize her art. They’re hard to explain, but easy to see, if you scroll her feed you’ll quickly realize there is a way she draws faces, for example, representing the eyes in a specific style. It’s these things that in the end make the illustration original and they’re almost like a signature.
I picture her illustrations as the best way to enhance a fantasy children’s book, I think most of them would perfectly fit in that role.
The first image is a wonderful illustration, I got stunned by the stars. The choice of giving them such a defined shape and fill the sky is certainly particular, but I think the result leaves no doubt it was a great choice. If you zoom in you’ll likely get to see the eyes trait I was talking about!
The second pic is one you should look for if you like to see step by step process images. Margherita shared a gif that quickly goes through the steps and I’m fascinated, looking at the art starting from a little sketch and turning into this beautiful thing is awesome, especially when you get to see the layering process and the details coming up one by one. An amazing artwork!
