Bayard Wu is a professional illustrator and concept artist from China and he impresses the hell out of me. In fact, he just jumped to my top ten list of awesome artists I wouldn’t mind working with, and you can see why.
Vivid colors, sharp composition, smooth textures, and amazing detail all contribute to what is without a doubt amazing and awe-inspiring work. I look at Bayard’s paintings and immediately my imagination starts revving its engines. I love the dark mood and muted tones and his effective use of dynamic light in some of the scenes are just beautiful.
Below you’ll find a small collection of his work. Each image links back to the gallery of origin. Enjoy!
And there you have it. Pretty spectacular and good enough to fantasize about, or even get the writing juices flowing.
