nothing better than a good ol #tbt post. There’s not enough words for me to muster up how amazing I feel being in the Philly Game Mechanics community. There’s always something going on with beautiful amazingly wild and creative people! I’ve always felt at home at every meeting no matter how long it’s been. Down to my first collab game Zapitos™️ with @tabithakarol and my first show and tell where everyone pushed me to go up because they wanted to see what I had to offer in the most motivating way hahaha I’ll always love my game fam 💖 - @marpaint
For today’s post, here’s a bit of what’s been on my plate as of late. I’ve been really diving into my current dungeons and dragons campaign and have made oodles of images which I need to compile soon so I can show them all! Dnd has really helped me just draw almost about anything that I wouldn’t before and has motivated and inspired me greatly to also work on other things like my comic! I’ve been working on the first chapter of my space comic, still untitled. It’s in the last stages of coloring so that should be popping out soon. It’s been amazing seeing how much dnd has influenced my own art and vice versa, seeing that my current campaigns character was based off of a character in my comic..! If you’re interested in some character busts for your own games characters, please feel free to message me for a commission of them 💖😎✨- @marpaint
For today’s post, here’s a few pictures of my last paintings I’ve done from my last year at the Pennsylvania academy of fine art. We can pretend this is my origin story. Wanting to leave Miami, Florida, PaFA seemed like best place to go and it truly was. Not only for the school, but for the people I’ve gotten to know and love and have grown together with trying to figure out what we all want to do with our art. For these two paintings, and the others I did around the theme of space for my own characters, the idea really grew from feeling like I could be myself around my peers and teachers. Big thanks to all my friends I’ve met since living here in philly 💖 - @marpaint
Hello game family! My name is Marinna Romero and I’m very excited to be sharing my work this week with y’all on the Philly Game Mechanics Instagram. I work right now as a production designer but definitely am fully into making paintings, cartoons, comics and of course, games! I’ve done work on the magestic Phillytron, Cocoa love conventions, and have a couple of games under my belt because of the amazing game jams at PGM 😎 Again, thanks for taking a peek at my work and if you’d like to see more in the future, feel free to follow me here at @marpaint commissions are also open and I’m always free to take a message 🎉
