It’s no surprise that his list of clients is a long and impressive one. Companies like Marvel, Disney, Wizards of the Coast, Blizzard Entertainment, Todd McFarlane Productions, Dark Horse Comics, and Ubisoft Entertainment are but a few worth mentioning.

There is not much to say, really. Aleksi’s work is awesome. His illustrations are vibrant and detailed and pulse with exciting action and remind me of my comic book days. I also love his background landscapes. The first two images are of particular interest to me, especially the one of Elric of Melibone. Although both images differ in style and tone, they remain equally powerful.

Let me know your thoughts and remember to check out this week’s Art of Science Fiction over on Kōsa Press.

Cheers!

  1. Oh, I like this one. So dynamic! And I lvoe the monochomatic atmosphere in most of them.
    The characters are also so vivid, so vibrant. It’s obvious they have a story to tell.
    Thanks for sharing 🙂
