    fantastic and gorgeous.

    I love these! I like how the paint seems slapped on there with messy, imperfect lines/brushstrokes, but Shkipin’s figures are still detailed, discernible and compelling. It’s like Shkipin’s sculpted a melting mass of colour into scenes of a very ominous world.

    • Ilya Shkipin

      All of these are digital actually!

      • chuu

        :O ooh wow! brilliant!

  • Renato Robles

    They remind me of Francis Bacon and Basquiat mixed together.

  • ninobenito

    saw this in the submissions. lovely work.

  • Huge inspiration, the brushwork is so great. Hard to believe its digital.
