ABOUT AMANDA

Hey there, I am a 2D game and comic artist who graduated as Master of Arts in Creative Design for Digital Cultures with honours in 2013. I have a natural love for style development for I believe it has the power to increase the strength of a game's IP, which is probably why you will find many different styles in my portfolio.
