#Art of Fantasy 82: Richard Wright

From studio artist to freelance illustrator, matte painter, and concept designer, UK artist Richard Wright has worked on projects for Blizzard Entertainment, Games Workshop, Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: The Gathering, and the World of Warcraft. And, as you’ll soon see, his fantasy worlds are sublime.

Below is a small sampling of his awesome work. Each image links back to the site of origin. Enjoy!

I love the scale and proportions in his art. Richard creates worlds where leviathans and other behemoths dwarf humans and epic structures dominate the landscape. His color composition is faultless. As a matte painter, Richard’s photo-realistic environments are perfect. A visual feast, for sure, that awes and inspires and draws you in to explore more.

Let me know your thoughts below. Also, I revisit Pascal Blanche in this week’s Art of Science Fiction over at Kōsa Press with some updated work from the artist. Check it out.

Cheers!
