Flights of High Fantasy

Combine the raw energy of a raging fire, with introspective characters in a high-fantasy setting, and you have a recipe for beautiful art. No one can make the magic happen with these ingredients like Justin Sweet can.

With brutal, passionate strokes, he has reinterpreted the classics of the genre — Tolkien and Dungeons & Dragons — as well as explored new territory of his own. At his site, you can even take a peek inside his head by reviewing his pencil drawings and concept works.

But don’t linger too long… you might get burned!
