I first taught Marcus in a second year intro to Adobe Creative Cloud class so it's cool to see how he has grown as a student over the 3 years he has majored in character design at ACAD. "Hitting his stride" is perhaps an overused phrase but Marcus's work in his final year got me thinking about the meaning of the phrase and he certainly defines it. It will be cool to see how he grows as professional in the next few years. Check out his work here: https://marcusoriente.artstation.com
The images I have selected below are a little different (more illustration) then the character design work on Marcus' website but I really dig them and hope he explores this content in the future as well as his great concept art.
