CGSociety relaunches the ever-popular Meet the Artist thread with an invitation to all of you to speak to an artist specializing in a genre that never quite tires.
Cris Delara - digital character illustrator.
After graduating from university in 1995, Cris Delara ran her own graphic design company. Then in 1997 she changed her approach to work, bringing it closer to her illustration and digital painting skills. “By 2002, I started as a freelance illustrator, painter and comic colorist. In 2006 I decided to work with something more attractive to the audience, a beautiful and special product that could be recognized as unique. I started to producing my real passion… my pinups,” she says.
Cris Delara soon moved from Brazil to Toronto in Canada to work as an Art teacher at Niagara College. She opened her own illustration studio, with the main product coming from the business being her biggest passion. Pinups and posters.
In a CGWorkshop just opened for students, Cris Delara presents an eight week, online digital art CGWorkshop, Cris introduces the history of what she calls “Pinupology” - the art of creating attractive, appealing pin-ups and “cheesecake girls”. Click the graphic below for details.
The Meet the Artist thread is now open for any questions you want to ask Cris about her work, her history, training and what her secrets are for capturing the very essence of the character art she has built her career on to date. Please make her welcome and post your questions.
This Meet the Artist thread will be open for one week from today, followed by many, many others.
