The Fantastic Art of Andres Canals

Be terrified by a gore-stained lycanthrope. Be enthralled by the dangerous allure of a forest dryad. Face the ferocious menace of warg riders. Spy grim dwarfs prepared for battle. Find yourself wandering worlds of wonder and peril in the fantastic art of Andres Canals.

The art of Andres Canals is fantastic in more ways than one. Not only is Andres interested in many fantastic genres, such as urban fantasy, high fantasy, post-apocalypse, and cyberpunk, but the moods and the details in his artworks are fantastic as well. His wargs and their riders wear savage looks in a composition that deftly depicts their ferocity. His mummified guardian exudes ageless menace as she stands before an appropriately dark and mysterious passageway. Whether it is the flowers at a dryad’s feet, or the carvings on a dwarf’s shield, the finer details of Andres’s works pull the viewer deeper into his visions of fantasy and horror.

Based in the United Kingdom, Andres studied art in Dorset and Wales prior to beginning work as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. While he is certainly inspired by modern artists such as Alan Lee and Syd Mead, Andres finds there is also much to learn from past masters such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Nature, travel, film, comics, fashion, and photography all serve as additional inspiration for his artistic creations.

Combining traditional and digital media, Andres draws pencil sketches that he then scans and paints digitally. His work has illustrated magazines, adorned role playing games, and seen use as concept art for miniatures.

Polaria and Polar Twilight

Cathy Miller Burgoyne, a freelance Alaskan artist working in both digital and traditional media, composes both sci-fi imagery and illustrations of horror. Fans of the fantastic may catch sight of far-off planets and spy traces of beings from beyond our world in Cathy’s Polaria Series. Lovers of horror may glimpse surreal scenes of terror and witness ghostly manifestations in her Polar Twilight Series. Some of Cathy’s art begs the viewer to take more than one look. Look again, and you may see something you didn’t see before!

In addition to sci-fi and horror imagery, Cathy’s artwork also features images of animals (Polar Bear Garden) and arctic landscapes (Walrussia). More of Cathy’s work can be found here:

Passions and Shadows: The Art of Kameron Ramos

A beast’s hirsute paw clasps a maid’s pale hand in a display of darkly tainted affection.  Passion’s fire blazes in a fantastically anthropomorphised form. A humanoid shadow betrays a monstrous truth. These and other delightful frights and weird sights can be seen in the artworks of Kameron Ramos.

An aspiring young artist from Jacksonville, North Carolina, Kameron says he draws or paints whatever is on his mind at the moment he picks up pencil or brush. His thoughts and feelings at the time of composition influence what direction his artistic expression takes.  His style varies depending on where each individual piece leads him. Kameron says that his girlfriend is his greatest inspiration. She was the one who gave him the impetus to once more follow an artistic path after he had given up on art.

Currently, Kameron is working on a comic which he hopes to complete someday.  He also has an on-line gallery of his art located here:
