Dave Rapoza is synonymous with dark fantasy, but has changed it all up with a handful of brand new images
Sometimes you think you know what to expect from an artist.
Take Dave 'Dark Lord' Rapoza. He's made his name mastering shadow and the creatures that dwell within.
Then he side-steps expectation, posting these stunning 'sketches' full of light and colour and subtle lines.
More Möbius than Morgoth, these pieces are a world away from the heavy textures of much of his work to date... We have to admit, we had to check that they were actually Dave's!
We can't wait to see more of this style from Dave, but we'll always have a soft spot for his dark fantasy.
So much so that we asked him to create a brand new digital painting for issue 99 of ImagineFX.
Get your hands on the print or digital edition and see the full painting now!
