#Art of Fantasy 27: Svetlin Velinov

885357_10151506764439870_994411138_oToday’s artist hails from Bulgaria. Svetlin Velinov is a freelance illustrator and concept artist who has done work for companies such as Wizards of the Coast, Phoenix Age and Applibot.

His style, in my opinion, captures the essence of fantasy and I especially like the gritty lines and dark colors. He is exceptionally strong on creature design and, like some of the other artists I’ve featured on this blog,  the detail in his work is truly satisfying to behold.

Below are a few choice pieces for you to enjoy. If you click on an image it will take you to the gallery of origin.

facination_by_velinov-d8fm53tI am happy to say this series is truly global in its attempt to showcase talent from around the world, albeit unintentionally so. My methodology consists of one criterion only and that is, the art should blow me away. Nothing else matters.

There is a chance I might run a similar series on Kōsa Press’s blog concurrently with this one. It’ll be called “Art of Science Fiction” and will focus on spaceships and aliens and planets and all things Sci-Fi. I should have an answer soon, and when I do, fear not, I will let you know.

Enjoy!
