Maria Pena

I have been a storyboard artist and illustrator in the Australian advertising industry for more than 27 years.    With more than 15 years experience working with film directors I have developed a filmmaker’s instinct for sequential storytelling. Storyboards aside, I illustrate any subject - animals, children,  fashion, logos, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, architecture and landscapes. I have illustrated two children’s educational books: Our Busy Bodies by Wendy Macdonald and I Knew Better by Pamela Rushby. I work digitally, mainly on Photoshop CC 2014, Painter 12 and Illustrator CC 2014 and was one of the first storyboard artists to swap traditional markers and paper for a computer, back in 1997. My arsenal of tools now include 3D applications like Poser Pro, Bryce Pro and Sketchup, and others like Toon Boom Storyboard Pro, for quick animated storyboards, and Manga Studio EX 5 for Comic book work.
