Michelle Gonzo
Artist | Digital Art
United States
I am a concept artist and sci-fi fantasy illustrator currently working on my own fictional sci-fantasy realm and its denizens. Occasionally I will attend conventions and other shows selling my prints, bookmarks, stickers, buttons, jewelry, and plushies!

Growing up I was inspired by many of the comic books, films, television series, and video games my father had in his collection. These include Star Wars, Star Trek, Myst, Marvel/DC, tons of 1950s-1980s sci-fi as well as many 90's animated series.

I found myself drawing constantly and envisioning new worlds and characters- and hope to one day inspire others with my work as I had been.

I also live and work with my fiance (who goes by Wanderbots or Wanderbot on Youtube, Twitch, etc) making Let's Play videos and working on art- namely from my own personal project and for our D&D/tabletop game series.

Below are some links to my other social media sites and my shop!


Notes about Using/Sharing my artwork-

I put a lot of time, thought, and effort into creating my characters and the stories behind them. If you wish to share my work online with others, retweet/reblog from my original posts so that I am provided with links and credit! Instagram and other sites do not have this function, so please ask for permission if you wish to repost and give proper credit via links and tags. Please do not share my work on Pinterest without it being a link to the direct source (like a link from here on Deviantart with my name fully displayed), as each 'pin' becomes a new search result online and can't easily be traced back to me otherwise.

I have also been receiving queries about fanart and fanfiction of my characters. I'm glad so many of you are inspired by my work, but please do not create art related to my characters that is nsfw. If you create fanart, do credit me for the character and provide links to my work. I am currently not comfortable with fanfiction for my tale 'Clyssus'- as the story is still in its early stages and there are legal issues involved with copyright etc. Fanart of my characters is not to be sold in any format or commissioned from an artist other than myself.

My art is also not to be taken, altered, recolored, traced, cropped, or referenced for posts, banners, icons, your own artwork, characters, tattoo designs, trading cards, book covers, or any form of merchandise. If you enjoy my work and would like a character in my style for icons, banners etc- I can craft a character/creature made specifically for you via commissions when I have them open!

Thank you!

Commission Status: Closed
I do not do requests and art trades, but will potentially be opening up commissions in the future. I'll be sure to post an update here and on my other social media when slots are available!

:D The last few months have been busy due to upcoming conventions and a cross-country move, but hopefully when things settle down I'll be able to finish more pieces! Thank you so much for your comment!

You have a wonderful gallery! I recognized Elaryn right away while browsing (My husband is a big fan of your campaign via YouTube)
KeeperofAges Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2019   Digital Artist
Thank you so much! I'm glad your husband has enjoyed our series, and am so sorry the campaign likely won't be continuing unless Wander and I make an animatic 'what would have happened' finale or play out the rest of it with just Elaryn and Skitter. Unlike some of my past D&D characters (who were always very serious), I absolutely loved portraying Elaryn. She's essentially a more bubbly version of myself. :D

Wander and I are looking forward to starting up new campaigns in the future, for which I'll definitely illustrate character portraits/paintings and participate in them as either a player or the GM/DM. Crafting my own characters and the worlds they inhabit as a child definitely served as an inspiration for me to become an artist in the first place, and it's great to see so many people becoming involved in tabletop roleplaying games that encourage worldbuilding and their own creativity!

Once again, thank you!

Seriously love your art style it's very unique. The colors really pop, which explains how I easily stumbled upon it. Keep it up! It's motivating me to try digital art. Clap 

Also Happy late Birthday Meow :3

Thank you so much! I was solely a black and white pencil/pen user up until I went to college and started to dabble in digital illustration. It's taken a while for me to learn how to use color in a new medium, but needless to say I've been loving it and learning more with each piece!

One tip for bright colors is to use hue as well as value to shift from light to dark or visa versa. It makes color-mixing resemble a rainbow!

Once again, thank you! :D

edit- typo!
