Manchester, United Kingdom

My name is Marina Ortega and I’m a Spanish concept artist based in Manchester, UK. I studied Fine Arts back in Spain, and kept studying and learning from online education like CGMA and Learn Squared. I relocated to UK in 2014 and began working in-house to became freelance after the first year. I’ve been devoted mainly to environment and props design for videogames, but I also worked on backgrounds and different kind of illustrations.

I love creating worlds and locations for stories, I enjoy great narratives and meaningful projects in general, mixing genres and design from big environments with focus on ligthing and mood, to the smallest more mundane props, and from time to time I go and begin creating monsters or anything that seems more off my portfolio if I feel I need to tell something with it.

A bit about my work, here is a list with some of my clients since I began seriously in the industry in 2014:

Rise Studios
Revolution Games
Flipbook Studio
Endnight Games
Games Workshop
Pinnacle Entertainment
Uncle Frank Productions
Ilanimation Studios
Pixelbomb Games
Iction Games
Red Ninja

Mentions:

2nd in The Game Workshop's 2017 Challenge for Environment Design
1st place winner of "Distant Worlds" environment concept art contest by CGMA CG Master Academy and Syn Studio.
