New Artist! 🙂
So after a month of no posts, I’m back with a brand new artist! 😀
Her name is Mara Marsiglia, an italian emergin artist. The passion for art grew with her since she was a little girl. In fact she started from scrap, but her love for art took her firstly to an Art school, later to one year of NABA, in Milan, as a student of Media Design and nowadays she’s studying at the European Accademy of Manga, in Italy.
At the very beginning Mara wanted to become a fashion stylist but after she saw the manga “Fullmetal Alchemist“, her “art-adventure” towards the manga world began. At first she only read them but after a while she started drawing in that direction. The “mother” of her style is Hiromu Arakawa, creator of “Fullmetal Alchemist”. Other japanese artists who influenced her style are Oh! Great and Tite Kubo. From the italian artists there are Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa for locations and atmosphere, Paolo Barbieri on the other hand, with his realistic art, influenced her with the digital art technique. As for her character design, videogames played a very important role. Some like “Final Fantasy“, “Kingdom of Hearts“, “HALO“, “Gears of War“, “League of Legends“…
All these artists and videogames only helped her find her style, which is a mixture of japanese comic book art and realistic art, and that is what makes Mara’s art unique. Her bigest inspiration in life is to become a famous manga artist in Italy. So go and check her amazing works! 😉
