Kelsey Beckett (aka neeka) is the talented illustrator who hails from Detroit. Her online gallery showcases dramatic scenes featuring fierce femme fatales. Kelsey’s digital and traditional art depict incredible detail and color choices. Her blog is a must read; loaded with color studies as she experiments with new work. I eagerly await the launch of her new website, which is coming soon! You can follow her on tumblr and twitter, as well! To be honest- I think Kelsey could have a very bright future in comic book cover art (if she choose to go that route). Kelsey is currently offering $50 commissioned portraits- a great deal from an artist who we will absolutely be seeing more of in the future.

Artist Emma Uber, of Australia, paints incredibly colorful portraits. Her series of oils and pastels incorporate beautifully detailed—and mainly feminine—faces that blend into backgrounds filled with thick, vibrant strokes, drips and smears of paint, and bursts of colorful shapes and flowers. Her use of a strong color palette and aggressive strokes, set against the soft features and expressionless faces, sparks an intense curiosity about each of her subjects. Voyeurism to the extreme. The women featured within Emma’s portraits are dripping with the seduction of James Bond’s fierce femme fatales. To see more of Emma’s beautiful paintings and works in progress, check out her website and facebook page.
