Game Graphic Designer - Japan
Hi, I am Mai Okuma. I am a professional game graphic designer and I do CG illustrations as well.



  • Moss Phlox

    Moss phlox blooms around April to May in Japan. I was inspired to do this illustration after seeing all the beautiful moss phlox both in my hometown of Saitama as well as where I have gone travelling to. Because moss phlox grows on soil, I have chosen to present a girl lying down surrounded by the vivid colors of the flowers.

  • Angel

    Angels usually seem kind and gentle, but I drew this angel with a tinge of fear for something. In the background is a sinister gate, in the foreground a beautifully poised angel. This work is all about the contrast between terror and beauty.

  • Vampire

    This work is focused on drawing out the beauty of women. I hope that viewers will see not only the beautiful appearance, but feel also a strange, devilish aura around her.

  • Alice

    I tend to draw fluffly dresses like this one.
    She is full of sweet cuteness.

  • Hatsune Miku

    I don't usually do fan art, but I decided to do this because I really like Hatsune Miku. The point of this piece was to express Hatsune Miku in my own way. I love her floppy, long ponytails!

About Me

Mai Okuma

Game Graphic Designer / Japan

I started working with social games and illustrations when I was still in school.

After graduating from Toyo Institute of Art and Design in 2010, I began working for a game company.
As a PC online game graphic designer, I am also in charge of proposals for in-game events, character designs, as well as 3D character modeling.

For illustrations, I like drawing things that are cute but substantial.

I will be focusing more on illustrations from now on.

    About Illustrating

    I do all of my illustrations, including the sketches, on my tablet.
    For rendering images, I usually use my laptop.

    The software I use most is Adobe Photoshop CS3.

    Starting from rough sketches, a complete illustration takes me about:
    - People Only: 1-2 days
    - Background Only: 1-2 days
    - Background and People: 2-3 days
    (depending on the content)

    I believe that I am the only one who can draw the way I do, and I put my sentiments and personality into every piece that I create.
    You are a fan of Mai Okuma
