Graphy | Character designing from simple geometric shapes by MARGANA
Sign in
MARGANA goes for Marta García Navarro and I’m a freelance illustrator and character designer from Spain! I started drawing when I was young,just after I watched Cinderella for the first time ever. Since then, I’ve always carried paper and a pencil when I wasn’t home and my school and college books and notebooks are completely filled with small illustrations on the blank spaces. You can imagine how proud my teachers were… I studied journalism (writing is my other passion) and media and I worked for some magazines and advertising companies just to realize what I really wanted to do was draw - draw for a living. I wanted to draw characters for Disney movies. So I searched for information and decided to complete a Masters degree in digital illustration, specializing in character design. I graduated and kept drawing and drawing and here I am three years later! I found my own style (it’s still very Disney-like) by trying different techniques, brushes and styles.
