The Last One by Grzegorz Rutkowski

This composition will go away you speechless. The profusion of elements in this artwork is compensated by an intentional deficiency of specific specifics, which does not exhaust the viewer’s eye and, letting it emphasis on just one of the most charismatic dragons I have at any time found in my life… This is a silhouette of indescribable bestiality!

Dragon Bones by Stefan Koidl

A single of the most renowned illustrations on the internet. This is very well-deserved due to the fact all the things in this graphic invitations us to go out to travel and have an experience.

The composition is really exclusive and the shades are just stunning.

Nicol Bolas by Magic the Gathering Official Brandshop

Currently being both a substantial admirer of Magic the Collecting and an illustrator for this earth-well-known buying and selling card game, I couldn’t skip the impressive Nicol Bolas. This is certainly my preferred Planeswalker.

Bride Of The Sea Poster by Gwent Official Brandshop

The melancholy of this piece can only be matched by the classy way it performs with coloration contrasts. It is an artwork which is both pretty subtle and incredibly impactful, with how it places together cold, desaturated tones and the fiery red on our protagonist’s hair. 

Dying Supplier by Frank Frazetta Official Brandshop

How could I not mention the legend, the fantasy, the master? Frank Frazetta’s illustrations have encouraged me from a quite youthful age, so I just had to pay back him an homage and attribute his most legendary illustration, Loss of life Dealer.

Under no circumstances has any impression marked the collective unconscious of all fantasy lovers a lot more than this 1. For me, it’s an absolute. 

Guardian Of Moonlight by VaatiVidya

I like this 1 because it is an epic simply call for experience. I suggest, there’s a knight, a castle, a dragon – what additional could you request for?

In this article the picture is designed with scales of deliberately “false” price, so that even although every single factor is an integral part of the scene, they can also be obviously distinguished, without currently being diminished or getting rid of detail. This is a meticulous operate of genius – and it sits proudly on the entrance to my home!

Yellow Grass by Dominik Mayer

This one is from an artist who surprises me extra with every single new piece. Dominik Mayer is certainly a exceptional artist with one particular of the most easily identifiable qualities that I have at any time observed.

Impossible to deceive when you occur across his work, his universe exudes a persona of its own, and nonetheless he often manages to renew and evolve his color palette. This splendid illustration

is a best evidence.

Practically nothing in this impression is traditional, and yet all the things performs and nothing denotes.

Sweet for the eyes and for the soul!
