I’m still in the middle of editing my story for Interspecies and it’s eating most of my time. I’ve even gone missing from social media for a while now. This is the second week that I’m a day late with my Art of Fantasy post, and I apologize for that.
But, at least I have another extremely talented artist for you today. Grzegorz Rutkowski is a digital artist and freelance illustrator currently working with Powerhouse Animation Studios, Inc. He lives in Poland. Some of his previous clients include Games Workshop, CD Projekt RED, Applibot, Ubisoft and The Vladar Company.
Below is a sampling of the artist’s work. Each image links back to the respective gallery. Enjoy!
Some of the paintings have a smooth texture and solid lines, but then you also have ones where the texture is gritty and rough and lines faded. I like both styles, but I note that the more personal work follows the latter style, which is interesting.
Although the overall tone is dark the color composition is far from muted. His paintings possess a vibrancy caused by the subtle use of lighting. Whether it be from a glint on armor or magic, these paintings are dynamic and awe-inspiring.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and remember to visit my Art of Science Fiction post over at Kōsa Press.
