Welcome to the DeviantART page for Laura Stephens!

I'm an animator and filmmaker transitioning into marketing, with a ton of education and enthusiasm for promoting the arts.


Drawings: $25+ per hour (hint/tip: I specialize in storyboards, comic strips, and animatics)
Animation (both 2D and 3D): $30+ per hour

** Flat rates are negotiable.** Third-party copyrighted or licensed characters, including, not but not limited to, character designs, fashion designs, and trademarked images not owned by you may incur an additional fee, and/or may potentially void our contract, at your expense.

I am a professional, and you are welcome to view my portfolio of work at my website: . In addition to professional original works, I also continue to do fan works, but all of them are complimentary, attributed to the characters' original personalities, tasteful, and either drawn for personal recreation, or gifted to very close friends. I do -not- participate in selling licensed characters that are not owned by either party. I would request the same respect be given for my own films and copyrighted characters. And, when hired by a freelance contract, I treat your original characters with the same respect, and you will maintain all creative rights and copyrights to the work.

This DeviantART page (lauraneato) is my recreational site. Fan art is a personal hobby of mine which I do in my spare time. I don't seriously sell this, nor do I include these drawings as portfolio pieces. I have a personal hobby of drawing for the anime community on the Internet. My biggest character design inspirations are Osamu Tezuka, Akira Toriyama, Masashi Kishimoto, and my biggest character performance inspirations are Jim Carrey, works Chuck Jones and Tex Avery, films by DreamWorks, Disney, Sony, and Pixar, South Park, and my mentor, Tom Sito.

Although my DeviantART gallery features mostly fan art and anime, you are always welcome to visit my Vimeo account to view my films in HD:… ; and, you can visit my personal/professional website, where I showcase my other works and films:

I hope you enjoy my gallery : )

Uhm sorry I read your rules for sharing your art but since English is not my native language I'm a little confused. Blog like tumblr are a "no" isn't it? I mean I hope they're a "yes" but I'll understand if you'll say no. I only post fanarts with the artist permission anyway so don't worry :)

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
