Audre 'Charamath' Schutte
My name is Audre Schutte (aka 'Charamath') and I am an illustrator and creature concept artist based out of the Seattle, WA area. I live to create monsters, filling up sketchbook after sketchbook with them every year. My illustrations come from a strong love of story telling.
While I enjoy traditional mediums like pencil, watercolor and ink, I am also proficient in Photoshop. I combine Photoshop with my traditional sketching skills to quickly create multiple variant concepts and color roughs. I am also familiar with Zbrush and traditional sculpting. I often use clay or Zbrush to sculpt out some of my creations. I find it helpful for figuring out lighting and perspective whenever I get stuck.
Over the past few years I've begun earnestly diving into my freelance career. I've worked on several indie games and am honored to be featured in several art books. If you want to see more of my process work, random art and sketches, please check out my social media links in the footer below.
