Genre-Bending Visions

image by Veronica V. Jones

Miguel Coimbra

A woman with long brown hair and pointy ears crouches on a branch in a deep forest setting.
A man in full balistic armor wields a large rifle.
An attractive woman in a tank-top rests, her natural and cybernetic arms crossed.
An armored warrior fends off a lion in a dust-shrouded arena.

It’s a rare thing indeed to find an artist who can convincingly portray high fantasy, space opera, and gothic horror settings with the same passion and clarity. This, however, is exactly what Miguel Coimbra has accomplished with his wildly varied body of work.

His loose, painterly style is equally adept in bringing gun-toting gumshoes and elfin archers to life with expressive strokes and fluid forms. If there’s a sub-genre of fantasy or science fiction art that Mr. Coimbra hasn’t tackled, you can rest assured that it’s simply a matter of time.
