Arianna Bellucci - Designer

Tuscany, Italy

I love to create characters and illustrate horror themed stories. Dark quirky witty styled illustrations mainly for young adult/teen target

Overview

I've worked as an illustrator, character designer and concept artist with Italian independent studios for the videogame industry as well as private commission. I've mainly worked for LKA with whom I collaborated for the release of "the Town of Light" available on Steam and now also published on console by Sony and Microsoft.

I'm always happy to work on new things as it gives me a chance to grow and challenge myself. Every time I have to create a new design, I study and research the subject to fully understand it. Once I start working on a design, first of all, I conduct research and create sketches trying to get an accurate representation and decide on the use of colour and composition.

To me it's important to have very clear and straight communication with the client in order to avoid any miscommunication that might compromise the final result of the project.

I am really passionate about videogames, children's books, animated films, music and fresh air. I always sketch the surroundings and people when I travel to acquire a better understanding of the world around me.
