I’m a fantasy & YA illustrator. I will paint your vision and make you a striking illustration. My strengths? Impactful storytelling with vibrant colors, clear communication and hitting deadlines. I paint illustrations for book covers, album covers, tabletop games, card games and splash art, but I’m open to any interesting project!
With more than 12 years of experience as a professional artist, I have worked as a freelancer and in teams, for all kinds of businesses from start-ups to multi-million dollar companies.
Have a project in mind? Please feel free to drop me a line with your thoughts!
The particular piece I asked Rengin to create was a very special one as it was to commemorate playing D&D during COVID and as a keepsake for a collection of small children who were playing their first adventure. I wanted them to have something special, and work with a more accomplished artist. I was worried that I was foolish. The foolishness was thinking that I was being foolish to work with someone of her caliber. She produced 3 layouts, and I wanted all three. Her intermediate work was precise, and clear. Rengin was a delight to work with. She took the idea and made it hers. She was punctual. Communicative. She offered me options that I never considered. And the final piece is amazing. I would be delighted to work with her again.
From the get-go, I could tell that Rengin was going to be very professional to work with. We started out with a very different concept initially, and it’s thanks to her ideas that we ended up with some that was even better than what was imagined. I would say that what sets her apart from other artists is as follows: - Excellent client treatment - Strong sense of art direction - High level of polish and solid all-around artistic capabilities. I would highly recommend anyone who might consider her to just go for it – you won’t regret it if you like her art style.
Rengin has a deep understanding of conceptualization. Throughout the process she proved that she understood the concepts and purpose I was seeking from the illustration, and even surprised me with ideas I didn’t realize I wanted (and then couldn’t imagine going without). There was an enduring impression that Rengin was seeking to collaborate, improve, and elevate the work, rather than simply fulfill her duty.
Talented, driven, ambitious, passionate… are a few words that pop to mind when thinking of Rengin. For 2013 – 2019, we’ve developed multiple campaigns together. She never stopped to amaze, kept raising the bar while maintaining her own personality, creating vibrant and attractive work. We share the same passion for illustration. But Rengin didn't stop at just being passionate, but pursued her goals. I admire what she has achieved and am curious what the future holds for her.
I'm such a fan your work, from the compositions to the use of color and light. Thank you for helping bring Addie to life.
Rengin is a true talent when it comes to visualising and character design. She leaves no stone unturned in her design process. Resulting in highly creative and surprising designs and solutions. She knows how to translate your brief into something special and differentiating. And a pleasure to work with.
Rengin has always struck me as intelligent, courteous, responsible, and aesthetically sensitive. She delivers projects when she is supposed to, and they have their own style, making them more interesting than other projects.
I have had the pleasure of working with Rengin on multiple long-term team projects, and I can safely say that she is a very dedicated and insightful person. She is clever, passionate, skilled and a lot of fun to work with, and I really hope that we get the opportunity to work together again!
