Hugo Puzzuoli

Hugo Puzzuoli is a concept artist who is originally from France, and now based in Quebec City, Canada.

His blog features some of his professional work, such as his concepts for Assasin’s Creed Syndicate, and his Artstation portfolio features more of his personal projects.

In his personal work, Puzzuoli often takes bright, appealingly graphic approach in his digital painting, with carefully controlled value relationships and bright punctuations of high-chroma color among more muted passages.

You can also find some digital painting studies of faces and natural settings.

Anton Fadeev

Anton Fadeev. concept art
Anton Fadeev is a concept artist based in Sochi, Russia, whose focus is on environments.

Fadeev works with an unusually bright high-chroma palette and complementary color schemes, that give his work an immediate appeal.

He sets a nice balance between naturalistic textures and pleasingly graphic rendering with lots of areas of flat color.

Much of the work on his ArtStation portfolio is for the Duelyst game.

Woonyoung Jung

Woonyoung Jung, concspt art and illustration, Modern Witches, Athletics with Dinosaurs
Woonyoung Jung is a visual development artist with Dreamworks Animation, but most of his online presence is devoted to his personal work — in particular two delightful series.

One is “Young Witches”, in which young women in colorful — rather then dour black — witches hats are apparently on vacation or an extended road trip, accompanied by their cat familiars who occasionally photobomb the illustrations.

The other is “Athletics with Dinosaurs” in which dinosaurs, dressed appropriately, participate in athletic events with people.

Both series are rendered in a lively, colorful graphic style that has much of the charm of 2D animation drawing.

Jung has prints of some of his images available on Big Cartel.

Raoul Vitale

Raoul Vitale, fantasy art, concept art, gaming illustration
Raoul Vitale is a fantasy artist, illustrator and concept artist who appears to work primarily in oil.

His illustration clients include “Magic the Gathering” art for Wizards of the Coast, and his private commissions often focus on scenes from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Vitale frequently works with a controlled palette, allowing the wonderful textural qualities of his work come to the fore. This is particularly effective in hie portrayal of dragons, rocky landscapes and gnarled, ancient trees (or Ents, for that matter).

He also takes on subjects from literature, such as his interpretation of “The Lady of Shalott” (above, second from bottom).

Shae Shatz

Shae Shatz, concept art and illustration
Shae Shatz is an illustrator and concept artist based in Los Angeles whose clients include Columbia Pictures, Disney Feature Films, Motiga Games and Sony Computer Entertainment.

His wesbite portfolio is divided into projects and includes sketches and preliminaries as well as finished concept renderings.

I particularly admire his handling of the textures of stone and rocky landscapes, in which his approach has a nicely illustrative feel while still looking naturalistic.

Shatz teaches a course in Landscape Painting at the Concept Design Academy.
