Maria "Ketka" Trepalina is a freelance Russian concept artist who has recently worked for Blizzard (on the WoW card game), game design house Sibilant Interactive and casual developer G5.

What's great about her work is the life. No barbarian girls with overly-large chests, no dystopian sci-fi futures, no epic medieval battles... just strong characters and lush colours.
