It’s always astounded me that you can draw something on a computer and give it all the richness of a hand-painted watercolor. I find this particularly true when looking at the art of Abigail Diaz, aka serafleur. She’s a self-taught artist whose work demands attention through dazzling palettes and a style all her own.
Abbi’s art dazzles in a mixture of vibrant colors, gloss and shimmer. Her subjects seem like they’d be right at home on the cover of a fresh j-pop album, shoujo manga or fashion magazine. She sells a number of her designs on different products, ranging from phone cases to tote bags and shirts at her Society6 store.
Abbi lives in Quezon City, Metro Manila. She started drawing at 7 and got into digital art around 2008. According to her Patreon she doesn’t have the best of equipment right now and would love to continue producing high quality art, so please consider showing her your support.
If you’re an artist (aspiring or otherwise) yourself, you can get access to high-res art, step-by-step images and her personal brushes by pledging.
It makes me happy to see a lush, “girly” style where the subjects still come across as multifaceted. I get a sense of each character’s unique personality despite how beautifully they’re portrayed. I can’t fail to mention Abbi’s eye for detail on clothes, either. They look as alluring as the subjects wearing them!
