Phantasma: Leigh Design by DjamilaKnopf Phantasma: Leigh Design by DjamilaKnopf
Happy new year! 2016 has been exciting, messy and bizarre in so many ways.
For me, it has been a challenge of finding my own style and voice. Of course, that search will never be over, but I feel like I've come a lot closer to what I'm aiming at.
When I ditched all the realistic painting and focused on linework instead, my style naturally started coming together.

Being able to work on my personal project PHANTASMA has helped so much during that process. It forced me to reflect on what I actually liked and what influenced me early on. Thanks to my supporters on Patreon, I was able to set aside a little bit of time each month to focus on my own work. I'm so grateful for that. <3

So this is Leigh, the protagonist. I figured it might be a good idea to draw these character concepts to really nail the designs and colours. I hope you like it!

You can buy signed limited edition prints of my artwork in my online store:

Or you can support the my personal project PHANTASMA and get rewards with each new illustration.
