Collette J Ellis
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
Born in April 1989 Collette June Ellis (MA) grew up surrounded by the dramatic landscape of North Wales. From an early age art has been important to her; as a child she always felt most content when expressing herself through drawing or modelling. This early interest has led her to pursue a career path in this field.
Her work is often inspired by fantasy and fiction; drawing inspiration from ancient mythologies and a variety of cultures. Her work varies from Digital to traditional working primarily in watercolour, ball-point pen and Photoshop. She has a particular interest in concept art, story-boarding for games, film and animation.
Collette attended Glyndwr University in Wrexham, North Wales, where she studied a BA Honours Degree in illustration and a Masters in Design Communication, during which, she travelled to China after being awarded a £1000 grant by the Welsh Livery Guild; to investigate dragon legends and the origins of the Welsh dragon.
Previously Collette has worked in collaboration with ‘Triptych Games’ as a concept artist for an online adoptable game, the graphic design company ‘Greenland Design’ and as a concept artist for ‘Movix Media’. In 2011 Collette had her artwork published in “Dragon World” an art tutorial book that features several artists from the popular art sharing website “Deviant Art”. Her most recent projects include working as an illustrator for fantasy author James Calbraiths novel “The Year of the Dragon” and as a concept artist for ‘visualization studios’. She currently works as a freelance illustrator and designer.

Aaaand you can count on me to find something else to say that I forgot to add previously; some of your designs also remind me beautifully of Miyazaki! Are you familiar with it? :)

I love Miyazaki's work! Huge inspiration of mine :) especially 'Princess Mononokie' it's one of my favourite films. Also gota love the soundtracks! Have you heard of the game by Studio Ghibli 'Mino Kuni' (not sure if spelt correctly?) Xx

Then you should be happy to know I can see the influence of both SOTC and Miyazaki (all the while, the work is very stylisticly unique - definitely yours!)
Princess Mononoke is one of my very favorites by him and was the first I came to own (though the first I ever saw was Totoro)... but for soundtracks, thus far I don't think many can beat Mononoke's. (...although, The Cat Returns had a beautiful waltz...) I have heard of Mino Kuni (I'm not sure of the spelling either! :lol:) but I've not yet had the opportunity to play it. It's on "my list." :XD:

I love your attention to details in your inking - the scales on your creatures are amazing. Your color palette choices are wonderful as well; much of your art reminds me of the atmosphere of games like Shadow of the Colossus - haunting and beautiful all at once.

SOTC is one of my favourite games of all time, it's just so sad and beautiful :') I think I have a soft spot for huge ancient beasts :P lol Thank you very much I'm honoured to be compared to games such as that ^.^ Xx
