So while I’m here, there’s a few ‘Share the Love’ type posts I’ve been meaning to make. The first is for fantasy illustrator Matt Dixon, who’s work I recently discovered. As you may already have guessed, it was a bit of an influence on my work for Battle Maerchants. I love Matt’s comical tone and the fun subjects he chooses. I also love his color palette and his use of lost and found edges, and the general looseness of his style. Does the fact that he is British have anything to do with it. No, but I was pleasantly delighted when I found out that he is!
This was the first image of his that I found while I was researching orcs for Battle Merchants. The more I looked at it, the more I loved it:
Ahh well, I could go on all day… 🙂
