But in­spired by video games Runescape, MapleS­tory and Fi­nal Fan­tasy, and artists Sakimi Chan, Art­germ, Bouguereau and Rem­brandt, she de­cided on a ca­reer in art. It led her to the door of Rhode Is­land School of De­sign, where she’s cur­rently in her sec­ond year.

“I en­joy work­ing pri­mar­ily in char­ac­ter art,” the Amer­i­can says, “and dream of one day work­ing for a large com­puter graph­ics com­pany in the Cal­i­for­nia area.”

A re­cent trip to China pro­vided Emily with a sketch­book full of draw­ings, which she’s busy work­ing up dig­i­tally.

1 Steam­punk De­sign “Steam­punk cul­ture has al­ways been a fas­ci­na­tion of mine; in this piece I wanted to cap­ture the en­ergy and life of the genre, as well as learn the de­sign lan­guage. I was in­spired by a piece I saw on de­viantART a while ago.”

2 Gloom “This piece was made right af­ter my trip to Shang­hai. Dur­ing that visit, I made sure to draw ev­ery­thing I saw – es­pe­cially the ar­chi­tec­ture. There is so much to learn about Chi­nese ar­chi­tec­tural his­tory. From big sky­scrapers to an­cient tem­ples, China has it all.”

3 Por­trait of a Mag e “This piece was in­spired by Rem­brandt. I saw his work a while ago at the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art and my jaw dropped. It was bril­liant! I knew then that I had to learn from his work. His abil­ity to sug­gest de­tail was stun­ning, and I had never seen any­thing so el­e­gantly sim­ple."
