Introducing MichelleHoefener

:iconmichellehoefener:

My name is Michelle Hoefener and I'm an artist from the United States. Media I often work in is Photoshop, pencil, Copic marker and ink. I've been an artist for as long as I can remember, and always knew it would be my career path. A lot of my earliest art was done in pencil, coloured pencil, ink and marker, and often featured horses, unicorns, fairies, dragons, centaurs, elves and original characters for personal comic and book projects. Some of my earliest inspirations came from movies, fantasy novels and comics. I soon began to work in Photoshop, and became inspired by anime, manga and game art, sharing my work online, and joined DeviantArt. I have also grown over the years through studying at the Illinois Institute of Art: Chicago, working at companies including Riot Games and Midway Games and freelancing. I continue to make original characters and fanart, experimenting in both Photoshop, pencil and Copic marker. My favourite subjects to work with are concept art and illustration of original fantasy characters and fanart. I enjoy working with painting techniques, character designs, colour, lighting, line art, and always love experimenting with style. I always love to use creativity in everything from character designs, web design, interior design and have enjoyed designing websites for my artwork and interests.

Some of my first known works shared on DeviantArt are my original character, Iris, and my first mermaid in my mermaid series, Calypso. I have enjoyed sharing my art techniques and commissioned work with the DeviantArt community over the years, and seeing my art inspire others is always exciting! I love to see when other people become inspired and create their own original characters. Working with people through commissions has grown a lot over the years, and getting the opportunity to work with so many people on their original projects is always exciting! It has been awesome to be able to work full time on personal art projects and commissions. I have been very inspired by sharing my work with the DeviantArt community and looking back on how much my art has grown and evolved, and also the work of so many people. I am always inspired by other artists' work from the DeviantArt community, whether it is photography, illustration, concept art, cosplay, jewelry, etc. I am always looking forward to new ways to be inspired, grow and experiment, and to support and inspire the DeviantArt community!

October 2018

Deviousness Award Winner

To say that MichelleHoefener’s gallery is inspiring, would be an understatement. Contained within is an explosion of colour and dynamic characters! Whether you were drawn into her work through her Mermaid series or her incredible work with companies like Riot Games, you never leave disappointed. A long-time member of DeviantArt, MichelleHoefener never seems to let her fame stop her from being personable and helpful. She has shared her concept work, step-by-step processes, and even offers up line work for others to practice their colouring techniques. It is this type of community spirit that delights us, and we're equally delighted to award her Deviousness for October 2018.

Showing some love

Community Quotes

:iconyumikf::iconelsevilla::iconathenatt::iconskiesofchaos::icongenzoman::iconcatgirldstr11::iconvictortky::icon:

MichelleHoefener's gallery full of wonderfulness. When you first view her gallery - you see a lot of amazingly juicy, colourful and professional works! Each of her work is unique in that they are performed with a high degree of professionalism and love and you feel this love. If you ask me: What exactly I like most in her works? Then definitely there will be a colorfulness and poses. What can I say, just look at them! They are very dynamic! You can always learn something, watching her creativity and it's very important! Her works always beautiful colours, great proportions and dynamic feed. Congratulation on this well-deserved award, Michelle!

I've been following Michelle for years, there is something engaging about her compositions, there is always a great balance of power, beauty, and feminity. With great contours that are always incredible to look at, there is always something to look at with each new piece. There is no color she is afraid to use, it feels like she is always pushing herself to new limits, rather than following some type of colour palette or specific rules. She's always trying to push herself with a new pose, a new idea or something else to keep you wanting more.

Michelle's gallery has been a long-time source of inspiration and delight, not just to myself, but to all who chance upon her bounteous collection of fantastic work. What a banquet of visual delight resides therein! From the use of rich and vivid color (such masterful juxtaposition of light and dark!) to energetic character poses and thoughtful, vigorously dynamic composition, each piece seems masterfully designed to draw the viewer in, engaging thoughts and feeding emotions as the viewer's eyes linger hungrily upon all the delicious details of each and every piece. Even Michelle's rough sketches are a bounty of inspiration and encouragement to her fellow artists. If you'd like to nourish your own creativity and stoke your artistic hunger, I strongly suggest long, leisurely mental walks through Michelle's brilliant gallery at frequent intervals. If you take the time to thoroughly digest each and every glorious submission, I'm sure you'll discover to your delight that, just like me, you'll be inspired

This is a different sort of view for me, as I typically do not really follow game art, character art, and trading card art. Michelle is simply such a brilliant artist, with obviously a solid grounding in the use of color, perspective, deliberate distortion and putting an emotional content into her works that it is easy for me to be enchanted, and often startled by her talent in her presentations. Many of her works are so full of power, personality and heart that it is easy to forget these are not real people but are characters on a stage. And that I think is the essence of her art, she brings the amazing into focus, and you find yourself developing emotional attachments to the characters

MichelleHoefener's work is great: the sense of movement, composition, light, etc. Everything is so vivid and colorful, it makes you want to be there. In her hands, fantasy art is not a boring gray and dark place but a joyful and lively kingdom, an invitation to enjoy fantasy through colors. I remember back in 2007 or 2008, when I watched her Calypso and Alizarin illustration for the first time, I was really impressed by the quality and character design, I had both illustrations as wallpapers for a long time, because it was so inspiring. Now a decade later it is wonderful to see how her work has evolved in wonderful ways, but still, keeps that sense of awe and wonder. My congratulations to Michelle Hoefener for this deserved Deviousness Award.

Nothing brightens my day quite like finding one of Michelle's colorful works in my messages. From DJ Sonia to D.Va, Michelle brings pop culture's coolest heroes and heroines to life with her dynamic compositions. It's truly a privilege to be able to peruse her gallery, and the DeviantArt community is so enriched by the quality of her work and energy. I am thrilled to see Michelle featured, and look forward to many of my future favorite characters appearing in her portfolio! Congratulations!

MichelleHoefener is an excellently talented artist who has managed to bring out the personalities and elegance of the girls from various video games and comics in her unique style of artwork. Her usage of bright colours is fantastic and her gallery is definitely among one of my favourites due to its diverse range of interesting feminine individuals. I had even mistaken some of her artworks as official game designs when I first discovered her page, to my surprise. The lines, the natural postures, the wonderful colours as well as the stunning details always make me look forward to whatever new art pieces she has in store for the future! Congratulations on your deviousness, MichelleHoefener


Congratulations to MichelleHoefener!

Hero-bg by dtab428SYFY teamed up with DeviantArt to take Comic-Con by storm! See how deviants applied their artistic vision to the SYFY logo, which was emblazoned across the swag bags of convention attendees.

DeviantArt artists transformed the SYFY logo, inspired by our favorite genres!

DeviantArt is renowned for having great artists and great fan art. SYFY and SYFY WIRE have been celebrating the passion of fans and their artistic endeavors with their "It's A Fan Thing" campaign.

SYFY partnered with DeviantArt through a series of special projects to shine a spotlight on the fan creator community. It's a perfect match!

The following artwork has been showcased at San Diego Comic-Con (on items like swag bags and water bottles) and will also be showcased as window wraps and convention signage at New York Comic Con. If you're there, take a selfie with the art and share it with us in the comments!

Science Fiction

Space

Historical

Fantasy

Horror

Comics

I like a little dream-logic in my process...

While thinking about Speculative Evolution, I wondered what sort of visual might evoke a sense of wonder. I think remixing forms from nature can create really compelling designs that make us look again at the incredible creatures around us all the time.”

Hover

I loved that the topic and guidelines were so open, it allowed me to tackle the piece just like I would for any personal piece.

The process always begins with the story behind the art - in this case I imagined a world where cyborgs are everywhere and I wanted to illustrate a regular doctor visit. I love to mix mundane activities with unusual characters.”

Hover

I'm inspired by many artists and works of art, and I'm greatly influenced by Akira of Otomo Katsuhiro.”

Hover

Hover

I'm inspired by traditional artists a lot, especially James Gurney, whose works I've loved since I was a kid.

So, in my digital works. I’m also trying to achieve texture and a look that resembles traditional paintings.”

This was probably the biggest piece I've done so far...

Every element in the picture had to be drawn, converted into Smart Objects separately, then combined into the final composition... It was definitely a good challenge and learning opportunity and I thank both DA and SYFY for such an opportunity!”

Hover

The most important element was for the logo to be interwoven into the art while remaining a prominent focus.

Instead of trying to mash the art with typography, I turned it into a portal which helped not only draw attention to the logo, but fit the art thematically, giving the piece more sense of depth.”

Hover

I love how science fiction, while telling a tale from the future, always tells a lot more from its current time.

It's good to have a laugh at the failed predictions from 50 years ago, but at the same time acknowledge how on point some other predictions are.”

Hover

Hover

I think it's quite easy to fall into a trap of emulation, rather than creation.

So, I think the most underrated aspect of sci-fi/fantasy is the width and breadth of creative freedom available outside the standard design tropes...push beyond the ideas you’re familiar with, and create something new.”

I wanted to give the piece a vibe of wellness, as well as festivity and happiness with a magic twist.

I also wanted to put an aspect of religion and beliefs to make it look like a festival day in the name of some old goddess. I always focus first on sketch concept and proper composition before painting.”

Hover

As my theme was Voyage Extraordinaire, I was inspired by Jules Verne novels, so I thought it would be cool to create a piece on a research expedition of the lost city of Atlantis.”

Hover

I had a great time painting this piece...

I tried to go for a more painterly style in order to escape the current trend of using photos and textures. I also think this 'painterly roughness' goes well with the Future Noir theme, since it usually has a very dystopian and rough view of the future.”

Hover

SYFY requested that ToolKitten create a piece based on the sub-genre of Time Travel. Running water, a classic symbol of time itself, serves as the center of the past, present, and future simultaneously.

I spent an hour with my good friends dressing up in bathrobes and brandishing fire-pokers to get in the mindset and take some reference photos for this piece!

Never underestimate a good session of goofing around before getting to work.”

Hover

I'm self taught, so everything I know I learnt on the internet. Growing up, primarily Naruto and anime in general were huge inspirations for my style.

These days I'm also very influenced by the work of Alan Lee, Zeen Chin, and games like World of Warcraft and The Witcher.”

Hover

Every encounter and interaction shapes a bit of one's personality and, with that, the style of an artist.

Interaction teaches us what schools can’t: that every mind can be endlessly colourful and inspirational.”

Hover

The sense of community which unites creators and fans is one of the best aspects of genre art and fiction.

Social media provides a platform where ideas can be freely exchanged, so there's a constant dialogue which helps the aesthetics of the genre evolve and keeps the topics approached fresh and relevant.”

Hover

I started taking art seriously when I was in my late teens, and it was actually thanks to DeviantArt and the anthropomorphic art community here.

Anthro art was my first exposure to regular, approachable people being genuinely skilled artists, and it made me realize I could do it too!”

Hover

My mother says I’ve been drawing before I could even walk!

From self study to college fine arts, I’ve always been learning. I grew up drawing Disney, Warner Brothers, and even Garfield! Later I’d be inspired by Jhonen Vasquez, Indy comics, anime, Alphonse Mucha, Egon Schiele, and abstract paintings.”

Hover

I always liked that 'what if' aspect in fiction that allows us to explore questions of humanity and scrutinize aspects of our world, history, or different points of view without being overly burdened by real-life baggage.

You know, Star Trek TNG, or Martian Chronicles style.”

Hover

Hover

Genre art...has been sort of maligned as 'pulp' or novelty, but in recent years there's been a rise of viewing it as fine art.

You're seeing more of it in galleries and published in high-end anthologies, showing that people are taking it more seriously and not treating it as some throw away niche market.”

SYFY requested that Algido create a piece based on the sub-genre of Ghosts/Supernatural Horror. These three entities are as foreboding as they are intriguing as they wait for an unsuspecting traveler to arrive.

With fantasy as the topic of this project, I wanted to work with the image of classic RPG character tropes.

That meant fingerless gloves, shoulder armor, swords, and a lot of buckles. I thought of the logo as red gemstones that would be recognizable as treasure for the protagonists to reach out for.”

Hover

Hover

Since my theme was superheroes, I really wanted to make something unique and interesting to look at.

I figured since there was so much space, it would be a waste to just draw one or two characters -- might as well make it lively -- so I decided to create 12 characters based on the Chinese zodiac, each with their own animal persona. That idea gave me all the necessary tools to create the perfect superheroes.”

I have a question regarding The Magicians contest. In fact, regarding the vast majority of DA contests.
Are guys like me who don't draw, paint or make illustrations but work with and compose images to make posters eligible to participate ? From my understanding of the official rules, I can't find that specific rule that answers my question clearly.

Whoever came up with the ever-so-genius idea of never-ending scrolling in someone's gallery gets no respect from me. Thumbs Down [YT Usachev Show] I can understand when the Administration wants to experiment with the new browsing technique, but this isn't what I meant. This never-ending scrolling jolts you so much it's no wonder why people loathe that function so much. Yes, I am aware of the option that allows you to disable it, but when you visit someone's Gallery in incognito mode, it becomes aggravating to watch how hundreds of drawings are popping out each second. I more prefer an old way of browsing someone's gallery by clicking next page than cracking a wheel button on my mouse so I could reach the bottom. Sometimes when you try to "fix" something you only end up making it worse. :sostupid:

I have a question, and I'm not sure where to ask it.  Recently I've noticed that many Group Notifications aren't showing up in the notification bar.  Like when new forum threads are created.  They're no longer included in the notifications icons at the top right.  This is kind of a problem when group leaders now have admin that don't know there are new threads (unless they click on each group on the left in their inbox).

I got that you moved Announcements to group activity (I still wish it were part of Notices just so admin would see it sooner!), but now there's group activity that isn't even recognized as group activity.

Can someone explain why this happened?  I didn't see a journal about it, but maybe I just missed it.

Cheers,
Lindy

Well it sounds like a glitch, or you need to change your notification settings, group settings, or general settings; if any of this fixes it, then it was probably because of a minor restart glitch that accidentally turned a feature off, but if this doesn't help then it is probably a glitch in the servers.

How exactly would I go about changing my notification settings for group threads?  I find it odd that it worked, and now it doesn't.  For multiple groups.  Not just one.  Seems more like they changed something in the background.

Well I have never owned a group, but I think it may be in your watch settings, which if your using the mobile version of the system you may want to follow this excerpt from the guide I wrote for mobile users:

"If you want to watch, unwatch, or change your watch settings for that deviant, get to that deviant's profile page, then click the symbol of a man next to a green plus sign. Then if the symbol changes into a check mark, then that means you have added that deviant to your watch list, sadly this also means they'll be on your friends list as well; if you want to change this, then click the check mark, wait until a set of options appear on the screen, this will allow you to set your watch options for this deviant, including unwatching options."
