Today we want to introduce you to a talented artist who transforms some of our favorite characters into unique artworks. The artist’s name is Elena Manetta and she excelled in the #StyleChallenge where artists draw reimagining different ideas or cartoon styles.
Elena is a New York-based Storyboard Artist on Disney Junior’s T.O.T.S. (Titmouse NYC) and has a unique style of presenting the characters. Her artwork is intricate and detailed.
According to one of Elena’s social media sites, she likes drawing overly muscular characters. She also stated – “I don’t know if that’s obvious from my own cartoon drawings or not. It allows me to give a lot of curvy features to a man without making them look feminine.”
She says sometimes poses from stylized characters’ designs do not translate 1: 1 to other art styles. So things need to be tweaked according to what you are going for.
