I'm in the middle of the Big bang. Let me show you what I see. Thekingslayer.com gallery.
Tribute to the landscapes in Akira.
IN the landscape.
Painting & Illustration is a big part of creating art, and even more so in creative fields. Talent is talent, but opportunity can take a while to come. This is the artwork of a young artist that I believe fans, and appreciators of art will enjoy. His name is Artozi. As you can see in his work there is a vibrancy to it. Displaying emotion, drama, and urgency without an over use of elements. His color, and ink work are really second to none. You can see him working for a game developer like Bioware, Ubisoft, and even Darksider dev Vigil. Immediately on display is Artozi’s imagination. Artistically creating moments within his artwork that are vast. You feel that there is a universe awaiting to emerge in each piece. Really great stuff.Â
Here is Artozi’s description of his above work “Squawk of the Shadow”. Below you can find more of his work to gawk over.
This painting was chosen for the print in ImagineFX Rising Stars 2011 magazine, which I am very proud of. My idea was pretty simple - a man approaching an arabic city on speedy camel. It sounds almost enough for a nice painting, but I wanted to show a power stronger than humanity. Capturing the creature in frame would be another one in a row with paintings with big monsters. I had in mind wonderful shadow shapes after walking in nearby forest and it became a perfect fit for this painting. I don’t really know the exact story - but I feel two ambivalent emotions anxiety and calmness at the same time. It is a game of colours, shapes and moods.
