Maria del Mar Márquez Quintana
(a.k.a. Mar Quintana)

Digital artist with +15 years of experience.
Visual development, concept design, VFX, compositing, 2D animation.
Software: Adobe Creative Suite (PS, AI, AE, InDesign…), Moho, TVPaint, C4D…
I get along very well with teams, I give the best of me and I learn a lot from my partners, although sometimes I’ve had to execute whole projects by myself.
Advertising is a hard teacher and not my ideal field. I love Cinema and Fantasy and everything related to the Art of visual narrative.
In my free time I watch movies (all kind of them), I read, I sew and I take care of my cactus and the pigeon family that made their nest in my balcony.
