Istanbul-born, LA-based Tuna Bora works as a freelance visual development artist in Los Angeles, applying her skills to feature animation production, games, commercials and more. In a recent personal project, she co-produced an illustration book with Elsa Chang called Tendre Retrouvailles. A few examples of Tuna’s work from this book are above and below.
On her blog, Tuna shares sketches including the animal gesture studies below. These were observed and drawn from the online Figure & Gesture Drawing website which is a useful tool for artists who want convenient drawing practice but don’t have live nude models or wild animals on-hand at that moment.
