Karla Ortiz is a concept artist, illustrator and gallery artist who has worked with film and gaming companies Paragon Studios/NcSoft, Ubisoft, Kabam, Industrial Light & Magic and Marvel Film Studios, as well as publishers Wizards of the Coast, Ace Books, Tor Books.
Her illustrations have a refined, classical approach, with much attention paid to to subtle changes in value.
There is a video here that shows a time lapse of Ortiz creating the graphite drawing “Omens” (images above, bottom).
