I'm Marc Knelsen, but across the Web, I'm known as El Ranno. I'm a brazilian illustrator and character designer.

I've been making art since 2013. More recently, I've started to focus all my work on Character Design and, since 2016, I've been working on character design / concept art for indie games.

I love to draw animals, and anthropomorphic characters in a more stylized way. Video games and classic animation have always been my sources of inspiration. That's why I've always wanted to create characters with life and vivid expressions.

For a couple years, I've been serving the Furry community by making commissioned artwork of many people's character, and even giving lectures and workshops on character design in Furry Conventions.
However, with time, I've realized the importance of devoting time to personal artwork, big projects and such. Things that greatly improve an artist's knowledge and craft. But, since I make art for a living, I'm usually left with very little time to work on personal things. Let alone, well, time to live life itself.


This is where Patreon comes in. With your help, I'll have time to bring you fresh new work, characters designed by my own experiences and projects that go beyond creating characters, such as short, beautifully painted stories of characters and a world we all can deeply relate to.

By becoming my patron, not only you'll help me achieving the things mentioned above, but you'll also have access to most of my production and my process. You'll see how I design characters, why I make my choices the way I do, and, ultimately, you'll learn pretty much everything about the way I make art.


I intent to post updates in the last week of every month! Polls will be posted in the first week on every month. :)


Thank you so much in advance, for supporting me and my work!
