Alyssa Winans is an illustrator and concept artist for the gaming industry based in the San Francisco area. She is also a Google Doodle artist.
Winans often uses restrained palettes, along with subtle graphic and textural elements, to give her subjects presence and focus. I enjoy the way she controls her values in textural passages, usually in contrast to the overall value dynamics of the composition.
Winans has prints of her work available on inPrint.
