This week’s featured art(ist) is illustrator E.M. Gist.
Gist is a great illustrator and artist, mostly adhering to the fantasy genres. The best part about his art, in my opinion is that Gist often displays each step of the work in progress as he develops them. You can see this progression on his blog (liked above) and it’s pretty awesome.
Gist is both a skilled drawer and a skilled digital painter. It’s very interesting to watch how both of his skills are used in the process of creating one of these above images. Because he works in such gradual steps, adding layer to layer, I think his work over is hyper detailed. Look at the muscles on the baddies above, great stuff.
