Hello! I’m Chris Ables, a Character Designer for Skydance Animation. Additionally, I have worked as a freelance Character Designer, Illustrator, and Visual Development Artist within the entertainment arts industry for the last 10+ years. 

WHAT I DO

Character design, conceptual art, visual development, pencil and inking comic books and graphic novels, children's book illustrations, storyboards, production design, art direction, and writing.
 

WHAT I DON'T DO

Animate, set type, motion graphics, editing, industrial, medical, and product design illustrations. 

HOW I WORK

I primarily illustrate and color digitally which means I pencil, ink, and color artwork directly in Photoshop and Procreate which are two industry-standard programs. Work is delivered as a watermarked digital file (JPG) for client approval. Final images are delivered as layered PSD files.

Vector files can be created and delivered when necessary.
