Transformative Fantasy Art

Chuck Lukacs

The human body has always been an important source of artistic inspiration, inspiring artists long before civilization or even spoken language. While many artists have captured the essence of the human figure, few can transform it into works of alien beauty. Chuck Lukacs is clearly one of those rare artists who fuse inspiration and imagination to wondrously fantastic effect.

Much of his work is boldly stylistic, with a classic comic art foundation with an edge of woodcut starkness, and a hint of the surrealistic. Mr. Lukacs’ appreciation of the human figure is evident even when twisted and stretched into muscular anthropomorphic beasts, sturdy dwarves and lithe elves. Even his non-fantasy characters have slightly superhuman proportions and posing, demonstrating a clear disregard of the physical limits imposed upon most.

Much of Chuck’s time is spent in worlds of high fantasy, but he occasionally visits science fiction and action-adventure realms as well. He explains his process and latest adventures on his blog, but wherever his imagination takes him, be sure to follow.
