Janette Ramos is a digital artist based in the Philippines, who specializes in fantasy art for tabletop and video games.
I first came across her when looking for an artist for my spell-slinging card game, Fireball! Fireball! Fireball!
While I decided to go with another artist for that project, I kept Janette in mind for later, as I really liked her artwork.
When I later had an idea for a science fiction painting that I wanted to commission as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend, Janette Ramos was the first person I thought about for that.
She politely declined, as she prefer working on fantasy over science fiction.
She could have just left it at that. But instead she took the time to tell me about the perfect artist for that particular job, John Barry Ballaran.
He took the job, and that has led to a years-long working relationship, as we later started making a comic book together.
Janette Ramos could have easily just done the bare minimum and simply declined the offer, which most people would have. But she did that little extra, which in turn led me to a new creative outlet in writing that comic.
This post is me thanking her in the best way I can think of, by shining a spotlight on her amazing artwork!

She has also formed a new art outsourcing studio, called Imaginaires. Check that out!
