My latest arthrob: Kekai Kotaki.
He just handed in the above painting for Berserker Lord, the next installment of David Farland's Runelord books.
Kekai is a concept artist for ArenaNet Games. (You know, the guys that sweep the awards.) Typically concept artists are so specialized that it's tough to imagine them working on a narrative painting. Not so with Kekai. His work has epic scale, cool costuming, and is all movement. It's so hard to find artists that can portray movement without stiffening up, but he's got it figured out in spades.
