The search for an artist

A specific artist, mind you, not just any artist. Here’s the story:

A few years ago over on In the Shadow of Greatness, Arref Mak posted some art that was simple, yet pure awesome. These are they:

Since then I’ve kept coming back to them because, well, pure awesome! So, a while ago, I emailed Arref and asked if he remembered who the artist was. He thought it might be Matt Rhodes.

For whatever reason, I waited to contact Mr. Rhodes about these pictures until about 5 minutes ago. Now, I wait for the answer.

I have received an email from Matt Rhodes that these are, in fact, his illustrations.

Now, how do I convince someone that works for Bioware to illustrate for me? 🙂

    He’s very talented. And only getting better.

    I agree. He’s amazingly talented and the stuff he has up on the web is quite impressive.

    Those are pure, distilled cool.

    Yep. I so want to create an RPG illustrated entirely in that style.

    It makes me drool just thinking about it.
