Each artist I feature on here possesses a unique style that makes you pay attention. In Veli’s case, what stands out for me is his use of dynamic lighting and his uncanny ability to create texture. Veli’s work also has an old school charm to it that reminds me of the work we saw during the “Legends” series. It’s exciting and mysterious, the way good fantasy art is supposed to be.

And there you go, folks. Hope you enjoyed this week’s artist.
