Melissa Palomar Art Portfolio
I started seriously drawing when I was nine years old, and mostly self taught myself how to draw through observation. By the time I was twelve, I started picking up drawing books, and read a lot of comics and manga to learn from other's art styles in order to create a personal style. I ended up being able to adapt to different art styles easily because of this, and thus I can collaborate with other artists better. I lean toward manga style drawings, but have developed sketching and painting as well. In recent years throughout high school and college, I have begun self-teaching myself digital artwork, using: Photoshop, InDesign, Microsoft Paint, Clip Studio Paint, and Corel Painter.
Now, I am a wife and mom to an almost 4 year old! I am planning on starting a small business for my artwork, but in the meantime I do freelance art from home as I finish my Associate's Degree in Fine Arts.

FEEL FREE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE ARTWORK I'VE DONE OVER THE YEARS, WITH THE TYPE OF ART ORGANIZED BY TAB UP TOP OF THE PAGE. BELOW ARE A FEW PROJECTS I ENJOYED WORKING ON OF VARYING TYPES.
My most recent huge commission was this interesting project to paint a casque and key replica. The replica is that of an uncovered casque found in Charleston of The Secret national geocache treasure hunt from the 80's; this particular casque was thought to be destroyed in 2008. So my goal was to paint the replica close to the likeness of the original using what pictures there were available online when it was whole. The inside of the casque was unknown, so we decided to paint the inside and update the key's features based off the the image associated with the original casque. The finished casque and key (exterior) is the image left. The inside of the lid painting is on the right.
