Speedpaint on Youtube!
Hi, I'm Shelly (aka shellz-art)
Welcome to my DeviantArt page! (I've actually been here for over 8 years! ) This is my "personal development" site. You can check out my Website, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube channel and more below!
I am a professional concept artist, illustrator and adventurer from Ireland. I'm currently creating character concept art for video games and creating personal illustrations in my spare time. Oh, and the occasional fan art thrown in for fun!
My artwork is largely inspired by my adventures as a transatlantic sailor and explorer. This experience has been a huge influence in my creativity and work ethic. I have visited over 200 places in 53 countries, states and small islands. I've battled raging winds and high seas, survived pirated waters and tornadoes, trekked across an entire island and up a volcano, explored around in an army tank and submarine, took several road-trips, built wigwams, traded with the warao-indians and barely made it across the Bermuda Triangle in one piece. Just to name a few things!
Still in my 20s and now currently situated in my home country Ireland, I have a love for movies, video games, baking and playing piano / guitar. I also have 6 bunnies and a stray cat who decided to live with me.
I've worked as the main illustrator and concept artist for companies around the world. While I specialize in character design, I have also illustrated props, environments, weaponry, assets, UI etc.... I’ve worked on games, books, manga, commissions, wall murals, product designs, tattoo designs and several other projects as well.
Come say hello! Feel free to reach me on social media or email me for any work-related inquiries.
