This week’s featured artist is Rooster82 aka Ru.
Her digital art is some of the finest on DeviantArt, with some of the most luxurious fine details I’ve ever seen. She is also a particularly gifted storyteller, as made evident through her Dragon Age: Origins fancomic Nara: The Grey Warden.
As far as I am concerned, I don’t believe there is anyone who paints people quite like her. Everyone she illustrates has this real world look with an etherial quality. I am particularly impressed with how she draws hair and fur, the detail is stunning.
The textures within her work are also quite remarkable. For example above, the snow on the cloak is gorgeous. She also draws armor better than any other fantasy artist I’ve ever seen. Overall, I am constantly impressed with her work – it’s just so dang amazing!
