Sida Chen has some of the most beautiful, flowing imagery I’ve seen in fantasy art. The above picture is a fabulous example of the quality of color, texture and the overall smoothness in Chen’s work. The color composition is artful, her palette choices bring out the distinct quality of each tone.
The definition and sculpted quality of her digital paintings is notable. I feel as though I could physically touch most of her subjects, they carry a sense of weight and density to them. As you can see below, Chen is also a master with illustrating dynamic movement in static space.
Sida Chen’s work is very impressive, especially for someone who is still a college student (according to Tumblr). This young talent sees the world with a knowing eye and will hopefully produce quality art for years to come.
