Featured Art(ist) – Rafael

This week’s featured artist is Rafael (aka lost-tyrant)

Rafael is a digital painter who’s work mostly consists of game references. For example, the above picture is from Chrono Trigger, featuring the character “Frog” (what a creative name right?) in a heart wrenching moment from the game.

My favorite thing about Rafael’s gallery is his mash-up art. Much of his work consists of the blending of worlds, which you can see in the artwork above and below. The subject matter focuses on films and video games- most of which would warm a nerd’s heart. The art tends to have a comedic bend to it, even in the titles (see alt text).
