Brandon Liao, concept art
Brandon Liao is a concept artist for the gaming industry, currently working with Riot Games.

Beyond that, I know little, as his website and blog don’t offer much in the way of bio, credits or process information.

It appears he is working primarily in digital painting, perhaps combined with a bit of CGI modeling, though it’s hard to be certain about the latter.

I like the brushy, textural approach to his renderings, and the loose, sketch-like appearance of many of his pieces when viewed in detail.

I also particularly enjoy his low-key approach to composition, both in the sense of muted color and low value ranges, and in the sense of working to draw the viewer in with intrigue rather than trying to overwhelm with coolness.
