Hi

I'm Amanda - Freelance 2D game artist and illustrator. I'm a digital painter, and can also create pixel art and vector illustration. I produce 2D game assets, from retro sprites through to HD user interfaces. I design in-game assets, like sprites and icons, as well as creating character design, concept art and cover art. I am very versatile and work hard to turn ideas into images.

I'm available to commission, please feel free to get in touch

This is what I do:

Early in my career I worked as a Flash and web designer for a range of small and medium-sized design agencies, working on websites, banner ads and CD-roms (remember those!)
