#Art of Fantasy 55: Josh Corpuz

the_phoenix_by_joshcorpuz85-d7mak6pJosh Corpuz is a freelance Artist and illustrator by trade. He worked as a freelancer for two years before joining Moving Reflection Productions. His clients include several established publishing and game companies such as Paizo, Pinnacle Entertainment Group, Artistic Justice Games, Forged Chaos LLC, and Gunship Revolution. He graduated with a degree in BFA in Digital Arts and Animation at Digipen Institute of Technology in Singapore.

I love the vibrancy in his paintings and his use of light. This week I learned that when artists use light to contrast the dark elements in a painting it’s called chiaroscuro. I love it when I learn new things, and, of course, I’ll probably never use that term again unless I’m writing about a snobbish art critic.

Below are a few samples of Josh’s work. Each image links back to the originating gallery. Enjoy!

As I mentioned above, I love the use of light and colour here as well as the contained energy in the scenes. You’ll note that some of his paintings have exquisite detail while others feel like they were painted in a rush of inspiration.

Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Cheers!
