Check out CGMA’s Spring 2015 student art gallery

CG Master Academy has updated its gallery with the best new artwork created by students at the leading online school during this year’s spring term, several of them ArtStation members.

In the Environment Design program, two of the school’s images of the term were created by ArtStation users, including games artist Julia Vasilyeva, for the evocative Snowy Fortress (above).

In a comment on DeviantArt, Julia credits Environment Design 1 instructor Aaron Limonick for his support, and for encouraging her to explore 3D space in her work.


Meanwhile, over in the introductory Fundamentals of Architecture Design course, the top three images were created by the same artist: freelance illustrator Florian Herold.

As well as finished concepts like the winning image above, Florian’s ArtStation gallery contains some accomplished line art.

In the Character Design program, Urszula Samplawska took the top spot in the advanced Character Design for Production course for her sketches of the detective character below.

You can see colour concepts in Urszula’s ArtStation gallery, produced in a range of styles.

Over in the Foundation & Design program, Anna Maystrenko created the winning image in the penultimate module, The Art of Color and Light.


You can see a similarly bold use of colour in the character concepts in Anna’s ArtStation gallery.

And in the introductory Dynamic Sketching 1 course, freelance illustrator Charles Hamel was responsible for the top two images, including the overall winner below.


You can see the term’s best images from the other courses in CGMA’s online newsletter, and in the student galleries for individual courses, which also show the best work from previous terms.

The work on display ranges from elementary perspective drawing through to more advanced pieces: in particular, there’s some fantastic work in the Matte Painting gallery.
