Origins 2006 Art Show Report

“Metaverse Confrontation” by Robert Scott.

This year’s Origins Art Show just wrapped up, and you couldn’t swing a dead pokemon without hitting many awe-inspiring fantasy art pieces. Artist Guest of Honor Steve Prescott‘s “Tiamat” was voted Dragon Magazine’s best cover, and judges picked their favorite hanging works:

“Four Seasons” by Brian Miskelley – Best in Show.
“Wizards, Warriors and Rouges” by Veronica V. Jones – Best Fantasy
“Metaverse Confrontation” by Robert Scott – Best Color
“Faceless Piper” by Andy Hopp – Best Monochromatic
“Kokujin’s Daisho” by Charles Urbach – Best Game-Related
“Alien Anatomy” by Rhonda Libbey – Best Science Fiction
“I See France” by Kay Steele – Best Historical
“Cissy” by Ren Hastings – Best 3-D
“Geisha Blossoms” by Heather Kreiter – Best Contemporary

Equally compelling visions were crafted by Aaron Acevedo, Michael Conley, Jason Engle, Doug Kovacs, Jeffrey Paul Prescott, Julia Sprenz, Tony Steele, and Susan Van Camp.

Michel Bohbot, Topaz Campbell, Dan Cortopassi, Theresa Mather, Nigel Sade, Tusk Stevens, Alain Viesca, Donna Waltz, and Megumi Soleh Yamada simply let their creations speak for themselves.
