Artists like to create representations of well-loved celebrities, film scenes, musicians, athletes or animated characters. This gallery is where my favorite fan art will dwell in digitally-rendered glory. And I'm egotistical enough to admit they'll never look better.
This piece of fan art was inspired by the Hu Band, Mongolian musicians who combine the cultural art of throat singing with Western metal. And I am a huge fan. Created from a video screen shot of 'The Great Chinggis Khan', I was intrigued by this striking image of what I imagines is a seer or storyteller and thought it would make a great piece.
This piece of fan art is inspired by the song of the same name by Mongolian metal band, The Hu. In the song's official video I was captured by the imagery of gladiators, old and new, and compelled to create it as an art piece. This artwork is a companion piece to 'The Great Chinggis Khan' and will be part of a tryptich with an upcoming third piece.
ANTHRACITE EYES / GIRL CRUSH SOCIALITE
Two tribute pieces to 60s It Girl and Andy Warhold muse, Edie Sedgwick. Rebel socialite and 'poor little rich girl', she has been a style icon and fashion inspiration through the generations, and admittedly, inspired a fascination with this artist.
This Fan Art was inspired by an Oriental Dubstep music video, 'Don't Break It', from artists Anna RF. I like this imagery's sense of solitude. I gave it a more somber palette along with grungy elements and using actual photos of rock texture as an effect layer.
DON'T BREAK IT
Most-Wanted Warrior is one of my earliest pieces of fan art. Created from a screen capture of a video by Oakland-based artists, Beats Antique, the fierceness of this warrior sporting an anticipatory grin of battle as he removes the concealing hood from his head, is both fierce and visceral. Two impact elements I love using in my artworks.
