#Art of Fantasy 42: Ni Yipeng

279908407-1436360482

I tried to find more information about Ni Yipeng, but I failed. From what I can tell, the artist hails from Shanghai, China, and it seems have done concept designs for game companies. He is also an illustrator and digital artist.

Today’s post is slightly different to my normal fantasy posts, but then, considering last week’s post, there is no standard except the art needing to be awesome and falling broadly in fantasy, which I think these do.

I really love Ni’s work. The characters are brutal and savage and his use of vibrant foreground colors over muted backdrops only accentuate all the details in his paintings. His art reminds me of Brom’s style. Maybe because it crosses the line between fantasy and horror or maybe it’s because of his use of smooth textures.

Below as usual you’ll find a small collection of paintings. Each image links to the artist’s gallery. Enjoy!
