I’m relatively new to art appreciation. A big turning point for me was a few years back when I read John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Since then, my appreciation for art and the artists behind the work has continued to grow. I even have some Peter Max limited edition prints hanging on my walls.
I’m a huge fan of fantasy art and pretty much any game art coming out of TSR in the 1980s. There is something about the oil on canvas, seeing the stroke of the brush—which for me sort of elevates the work. I’m not complaining about the perfection found in digital painting—just that I like the “handmade” quality brush strokes bring.
Archmage Rises is a love letter to tabletop role-playing games. The art style is ’80s TSR for the modern area.
Seriously awesome! (more…)
