IMAG­INEFX CRIT

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Issue 129 Christmas 2015 -

“It’s the sense of scale that first strikes me when I view Stephanie’s art­work. Fol­lowed quickly by an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of how she han­dles shapes as vis­ual short­hand to de­velop a scene. Groovy use of muted colours, too.” Alice Pat­tillo, Staff Writer

1 The Hob­nob “This is the name my grand­fa­ther gave the cabin he built in New York. I made this piece for my mom a few years af­ter he died. It’s very ab­stract and was a ton of fun to make. I let my­self play with sat­u­rated colours and an im­pos­si­ble scale, my nat­u­ral go-tos with land­scape.”

2 Dragon Tem­ple “I al­lowed my­self to ex­plore a highly graphic, dig­i­tal mark mak­ing. I used a range of photo tex­tures – Bud­dhist stat­ues, ori­en­tal rugs, met­al­work – and jum­bled them to­gether to cre­ate hits of light and mys­te­ri­ous de­tail in the back­ground. I loved us­ing a rich, deca­dent pal­ette of sun­set colours through­out.”

3 Storm “I used a lot of tex­ture-rich Round brushes and vague tran­si­tions, con­trasted just a few times with sharp edges. I wanted to use creamy, muted pas­tel colours to cre­ate a dream-like world that con­trasts with the in­tru­sion of the jagged, alien ship on the hori­zon.”
