About the Artist
Cassidy Noel Palmer defines her art style through her texturing techniques, eraser work, and attention to detail. She has a keen interest in illustrating facial expressions, hands, and feet. She has been drawing since early childhood; a love of 2D animation developed into a lifelong fascination with creating character- and creature-oriented fantasy art. A few of the artists she most admires include Allen Williams, Pui Che, Marco Bucci, and Todd Lockwood. The literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien, R.A. Salvatore, Robert Jordan, and Philip Pullman have also helped strengthen her passion for the fantasy genre, as have tabletop role playing games and the Star Wars universe. In addition to her own work, her recent freelance projects include book covers and interior illustrations, character and fine art commissions, and a children’s book in progress. Currently she is designing more baby dragons for her Dragonlings series in graphite, and her Gem Dragonlings series of digital paintings. Cassidy resides in Mack, Colorado with her husband and two children.
