Anime Art & Commission Illustration Artwork
Anime Art by Illustrative Designer & Freelance Artist Valerie A. Ryan
My name is Valerie Ryan. I am a 29 year old Canadian woman who has been working as a freelance anime art & graphic art commission artist for over 9 years. I draw mostly digital cartoon comic art & anime art, however I also do many forms of graphic artwork including logo design, flyers & banners, booklets, special occasion cards & posters, personalized stationary and well... any odd little custom graphic art or design related job you can come up with! I am easy to work with, friendly and an absolute perfectionist with my art.
If I had to classify my art style, I've been told on countless occasions that it is a mix between Anime and Western Comic Art. Of course, being a huge fan of anime art, I often try to veer my style off to the more traditional Japanese manga style of anime art. As my art style matures I see it changing frequently so who knows what will influence my style next? I also dabble in realistic sketching. My art interests lie in anime characters mostly but as I go through school I am being forced to expand my artistic horizons and am seeing my artwork take on a beautiful illustrative style. I've learned alot in art school so far and I am eager to open up my commissions again to see what I can do with my new design, art and illustration skills, even beyond the anime realm.
At this point I am proficient with several Graphic Art programs including Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and I am a beginner with Adobe Dreamweaver for building websites. I working on web design skills to build this homepage in order to showcase my graphic art, anime art illustrations and vector art illustrations.
This website was created to showcase my art and to answer questions for those who may wish to hire me for their commission art projects. Mostly though, I created this website to entertain the cartoon art fan, indulge the comic art lover and to impress the anime art fanatics. So whatever you are here to see I hope that I live up to your expectations & that your time viewing my site has been entertaining for you! Thanks so much for visiting!
