#Art of Fantasy 28: Xiaodi Jin

兽人Xiaodi Jin is a freelance concept artist from China. His work is dark and fantastic and thus an appropriate addition to the #Art of Fantasy series. I tried to find more information about the artist but to no avail. It’s a pity because Xiaodi’s paintings are phenomenal. His mood and tone remind me of Justin Sweet’s work which exudes a similar grimness and gloom.

Below are a few choice pieces. If you click on an image it will take you to the artist’s gallery.

大ddAnd that’s that. Before I conclude today’s post, I wish to announce that from next week onwards I’ll be doing an #Art of Sci-Fi over at Kōsa Press’s blog. It will run concurrently with #Art of Fantasy here. I’m pretty excited about doing this. There is some awesome sci-fi art out there and I’ve been itching to share it with you, and now I get to have that chance.

I hope to see you there. And don’t worry, I’ll make sure to link you when the time comes.

  1. Another artist with an eye for classic fantasy, I like this.
    I really like the first picture, not just the execution, but the subject. There’s something… I don’t know, endearing in that in spite of the ‘creature’ 😉

    1. Oh, I agree. You do get a sense of the classic with this artist, at least in terms of style and form, and adding the fantasy elements just makes his work even more spectacular.
