Mara Marsiglia

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! 😉

Marta Zaccarini

New artist! 🙂

So we’re back with another new artist! 🙂 Marta Zaccarini is an italian artist. She started drawing when she was very little. At the very beginning the subjects of her drawings were animals (cats, lions, foxes, horses…), but with the years she got interested in drawing humans. Here inspiration comes from the famous italian comic book Witch, drawn by the artist she very much admires: Alessandro Barbucci.

Soon she went to art school and afterwards she went to a school for comics. Today Marta is going at the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna, where she is improving her style.

Other artists who inspire her are: Mike Mignola, Dino Battaglia, Gianni de Luca, Juanjo Guarnido, Alberto Breccia, Sergio Toppi. But there’s also a japanese inspiration: Katsuhiro OtomoSatoshi Kon and especially Kōta Hirano.

She uses mixed techniques, like pencils, watercolors, copic markers, ink…

This new artist’s style may be influenced by some of these artists but it is very fresh and with time it gets more personal. So if you’re into asian art and you want to see a brand new talent, go check up Marta’s works, ’cause it’s worth it. 😉
