Shadow Of The Colossus: The Epic Fantasy Artworks By Ömer Tunç
Ömer Tunç is a freelance artist and illustrator from Izmir, Turkey, and almost a complete mystery to me. From his Deviant profile, I learned that his favorite movie is The Big Lebowski, that he loves Game of Thrones, and that his favorite book is The Lord of the Rings. Nothing about his art or the projects he’s working on currently.
So, we have only his art and the subjects he paints and that will have to do for purposes of this post. I did discover he won the 2015 GIO Award for Best Illustrator of the Year, for a painting based on The Lord of the Rings.
Ömer is immensely talented. The tone and atmosphere captured in his paintings enthrall you. You have mystery and darkness, and also something else, something I can’t quite put my finger on. Almost like energy teeming below the surface. Or maybe it’s just the composition. Ömer is one of those artists who creates the illusion of intricate detail through his use of texture and composition.
