The Amazing Fantasy Art of Catherine Nodet

Hi folks! In today’s inspiration corner we have some really amazing digital paintings by Catherine Nodet.

Catherine Nodet was born in France and has possessed a passion for drawing for as long as she can remember. At the age of 10, she left behind the world of black-and-white for the world of paint — a medium which will forever be a part of her.

Artwork copyrighted by Catherine Nodet (3)

At the same time, Nodet was intrigued by the beginnings of what would become today’s digital art, and she taught herself to use the very first graphics software in order to create her first digital paintings. Although a traditional painter, she likes working with current media (e.g. Photoshop), and uses it to fulfil commissions and book covers. She has studied Applied Arts as well as other art branches.

Although all subjects are likely to interest her, her world is primarily a fantasy world that mix fantastic, magic, myths, legends and tales, the History, a touch of gothic / steampunk and an aura of mystery and mysticism.

Most often one or several characters (preferably for portraits) in a context and a very special atmosphere for each illustration where emotions and naturals elements such as wind, water, fire, snow … also play a decisive role.

You can find more of Catherine’s amazing works at her personal website or her deviant art profile!

Amazing Fantasy and Sci Fi Art by Miroslav Petrov

Today we have with us 23 exciting sci-fi and fantasy paintings by Miroslav Petrov. Let’s learn a bit more about this awesome artist, before we get to enjoy his brilliant works!

Amazing Fantasy and SciFi Art by Miroslav Petrov

Amazing Fantasy and SciFi Art by Miroslav Petrov

” Somewhere between socialism and something else, in the very begining of the upcoming long and cold winter in 1985 was born Miroslav with a marvellous for the time almost 5 kilograms weight.

The creation of Miro:

Till the age of 8-9 the primary observation from teachers was to accept Miro as infant prodigy, BUT some years elapsed and they found that they are and were terribly wrong. For the biggest regret mostly for Miroslav, he didn’t evolve at all from then… the facts tell that it is either because of PC games or the invading age of the naked women on the home screen…
I’ve been drawing since the age of 16-17. I was playing games for more than 10 hours a day when suddenly my biggest inspiration came from Warcraft 3. Samwise and his art team inspired me to start pushing the pencil very hard.After lots of long, painful nights of hard work and skills improvement I decided to step into digital art. I was hired as a concept and texture artist at mastheadstudios.net. I still work there on an ambitious projects and search for fresh ideas… and women. ”

Let’s now enjoy his cool paintings! And remember that you can find much more at his Behance portfolio!
