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.
