Jerico plies his trade as a 2D artist at Filipino com­pany Lady luck Dig­i­tal Me­dia, spe­cial­is­ing in game art ser­vices for pub­lish­ers like Elec­tronic Arts, Ac­tivi­sion and Ubisoft. “Once I get home,” he ex­plains, “I start my hobby as an il­lus­tra­tor, and get to draw what­ever I want.”

This free­dom sees the artist turn his hand to ev­ery­thing from war­rior queens to twisted vi­sions of the Dis­ney princesses. “My il­lus­tra­tions start from greyscale sketches,” Jerico says. “Usu­ally I draw on a black back­ground in or­der to cre­ate the right light­ing, adding de­tails such as tex­tures and fi­nally ap­pli­ca­tion of colours.”

1 Bella tor “This is my first char­ac­ter de­sign. I was in­spired by brave war­rior girls I found on the in­ter­net. The char­ac­ter be­gan as a queen with flow­ers and lots of colour, but it ended up as a war­rior. I wasn’t ex­pect­ing that. The term Bel­la­tor means war­rior.”

2 Cold hands “I’m a fan of Game of Thrones. I read the books’ Wiki page and be­came in­ter­ested on the un­dead char­ac­ters. I saw a war­rior and was in­spired to paint him.”

3 Malef­i­cent “I al­ways see fan art of Dis­ney princesses, and I wanted to try some­thing dif­fer­ent. I il­lus­trated a pow­er­ful an­tag­o­nist in a cartoon style, at the same time main­tain­ing the dark feel of her aura.”
