My inspiration, Mario Wibisono

Mario Wibisono, or raynkazuya (his online moniker), never fails to amaze me with his artwork. It is simply inspiring to know that he draws and paint with a mouse rather than a tablet.

His style is a fusion of oriental and fantasy that is reminiscent of Chinese fantasy or wuxia novel covers. Mario’s characters are well-designed. Their poses and facial expressions speak volumes of their emotions. He uses subtle details expertly to greatly enhance the atmosphere of the image.

Mario’s artwork is an inspiration for me because that is the kind of style I’m striving for. His works have graced the cover many magazines and art books — testimonies of his talents.

I shall work even harder to follow in the footsteps of this a master digital artist.
