On life as an in­ter­me­di­ate artist at SIX­MOREVODKA…

ImagineFX - - Studio Profile Sixmorevodka -

What kind of art do you paint?

It’s usu­ally char­ac­ter or crea­ture con­cept art or il­lus­tra­tion. To­gether with Claudiu-An­to­niu, I’m also re­spon­si­ble for ju­nior artists and we help them de­velop their draw­ing and il­lus­tra­tion skills.

How do you ap­proach a paint­ing as­sign­ment?

I usu­ally have a clear idea of what I’m go­ing to do be­fore I start. I need to get my head around the story and what’s go­ing on in this project, or in this par­tic­u­lar piece of con­cept art or il­lus­tra­tion, and then I draw out a few quick sketches or thumb­nails. I present my favourites to my art di­rec­tor and after some time spent dis­cussing my work, we set­tle on one, which I then clean up, mak­ing a tight draw­ing. Then I colour it and take it to fi­nal.

What’s been your proud­est mo­ment at the stu­dio?

It would prob­a­bly be do­ing my first il­lus­tra­tion for De­ge­n­e­sis. Be­fore I joined SIX­MOREVODKA, that was some­thing I dreamed of do­ing. It was cool to see it printed and part of the big project.

What’s it like to work here?

It’s great! I’m al­ways amazed by how well peo­ple here get along. Ev­ery­body’s work­ing to­wards the com­mon goal, which is mak­ing the best-pos­si­ble il­lus­tra­tions. If I feel that I’m not up to a task, or if some­thing can be done bet­ter in a piece, then I can eas­ily ask a col­league who ex­cels at this par­tic­u­lar thing, and the fi­nal re­sult will be all the bet­ter for it.

Orig­i­nally hail­ing from Poland, Monika has been work­ing as a con­cept artist at SIX­MOREVODKA since 2015. www.art­sta­tion.com/monika­palosz
