My Bio
Hello, I'm Melissa!

I moved to the US about 3 years ago from Brazil, to pursue my degree, and as of March,2012 I've graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Animation at Full Sail University.

I've worked on Iron Man 3 (2013), Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013), Pacific Rim (2013), RIPD (2013), The Wolverine (2013) as a Comp/Paint Artist and previously also worked on Gangster Squad (2013), Beautiful Creatures (2013), The Conjuring (2013) and Motel (2013) as a Compositor. I aspire to be a great Art Director/Visual Effects Supervisor for games and movies in the future. I love everything about art, may it be movies, games, music, television, architecture, paintings, sculptures, etc.

Nice to meet you and enjoy!

P.S.: I will update my page as soon as possible!

Hello! Just a little update on my life! Since graduating I got the opportunity to work on a VFX company and worked on several movies as a Compositor (Gangster Squad, Beautiful Creatures, After Earth, The Conjuring and Motel). Then on the beginning of this year I changed companies and got to work on titles such as Iron Man 3, Star Trek 2, Pacific Rim, RIPD, The Wolverine, Percy Jackson 2 and more. I couldn't be any happier than this! Well, of course I could, my happiness just has been progressively increasing. I have to admit I am proud of myself, I could never have imagined one day I would be living in Hollywood and working on major Featur

Flag of Brazil Ni oi ma Flag of China , Mel13 it's a mix of Chinese and Portuguese of hello/hi, ni hao ma + oi = ni oi ma so I appreciate u say it too.
So do u always have watched Stitch the Movie or Lilo & Stitch series if u, alredy know that Stitch cousin yellow part Chinese dragon looking alien experiment 221 nicknamed Sparky?
Over 7 months ago there was a Lilo & Stitch Chinese spin-off just came out on March 27th, 2017 as there is a new girl, a Chinese girl named Ai Ling(An Ling in Chinese) in China on tv and in 2017 in a Chinese calendar is the year of the rooster.
Ai Ling is in a place of Lilo only in a place of China instead of Hawaii, here is the picture of them… isn't Sparky and that new little girl perfect and adorable?
If your interested in them the Chinese girl and you should somehow, alredy know that Chinese dragon-like experiment alien Sparky to draw them.
Could u draw them in a Chinese festival wearing these outfits, a Chinese gate called a Paifang in the background for them, drumming Ai is doing in that pretty China flag colored Chinese qipao outfit and Sparky wearing this cool outfit like a monkey king sort of having these antennaes on the cap and some Chinese warrior outfit matching for the Chinese festival it looks like to me, a stick and a lantern stick carrying with him as Ai carrying a drum celebrating in that street in China so here are they to copy their outfits and the background with the Paifang for the street Ai's Chinese outfits festival or Sparkys outfits can u do that, please?
When u finished the request for the Sparky & Ai fans/me so submit it in these special corresponding dates I'm picky with I want them to be in those days I'm available to plus favorite them is on the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 9th, 11th, 12th, 14th, 17th, 19th, 21st(that matches Sparky's 221 number), 22nd, 24th, 27th or 29th ur ready to submit them this year 2017 in these last 2 months of 2017 or this month of 2017 as it's special, please?
Also 7th, 17th and 27th dates matches 2017 too in a special way.
So what u think of:flagofbrazil: ni oi ma:flagofchina: that mixed/fused Portuguese/Chinese words?

I love looking for someone from Brazil to draw them for the soon to be Sparky and Ai fans in your own style of art these Chinese cartoon characters.
really really welcome and hello to you .... in :iconcalm-as-still-water:
