My name is Maimuna Venzant, also known as duckduckgoose-mv on many social media sites, and I am a digital and traditional artist focusing on visual storytelling, and obsessively painting detailed backgrounds most of the time.
I am currently working on a Master's of Fine Arts degree in Animation at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) workin on cool projects and trying out new techniques. I've just finished helping out with a 2D thesis film called "WYD" where I served as lead background Layout artist and designer; and a collaborative film with a bunch of friends called "Monarcade" where I contributed to painting a lot of the 2D backgrounds and 3D models.
Some professional clients I have worked with in the past include Freudenberg Household Products responsible for the Ocedar and Vileda brands, and IIT Magazine from Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT).
When I'm not drawing, I'm usually browsing through artwork or looking through 19 and 20th century photographs.
I use Adobe Photoshop for most of my projects, and will usually start off in a normal sketchbook with normal mechanical pencils, After Effects for any animatics or videos I put together, and for all of my 3D work I use Maya :}
