I want to introduce you to Wei Feng. He is a concept designer and illustration artist from Shangai, China and has worked as an artist full-time for over 14 years. Information on him in English is sparse and my inability to understand Mandarin doesn’t help, either. I do know that he is involved with Elements of Power Studio as you’ll note from the collection I’ve posted here.
I love the mystical elements in his paintings and his use of ornate patterns in the armor, and the soft and fine detail in facial expressions are exquisite. Combine his subject-matter with the use of muted dark colors and you have a very particular tone and style. If I have to describe Feng’s style in one sentence, I’d say it’s classic meets dark fantasy. Yeah, I know. I never said I’m a connoisseur. Just that I like art a lot.
As usual, below is a choice selection of images by the artist. Each image is linked to where I found it. Enjoy!
Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Also, remember to visit my #Art of Science Fiction post over on Kōsa Press. It’s live right now.

Fantastic! You’re right, there is something very unique and kind of unusual in the way this artist uses fecial expression. It convays a lot about the subject.
And I really like the tones he uses.
My favourite is the woman with the whip. I like the movement of the image and her expression of determination.
Thanks, there is a mix of the classics with fantasy elements and while it feels like they are at odds with one another, the results are simply stunning. Thank you for commenting.
