I’ve been a fan of Wayne Barlowe’s since I was a little kid. Besides painting and sketching some of the craziest creatures and beings you’ll ever see, he did some paleoart for a book I had called Alphabet of Dinosaurs. The picture below is the one I remember best. Those damn eyes…

Anyway, Barlowe has done concept art for some pretty major projects like Pacific Rim, John Carter, and The Hobbit. His ability to thrust you into a totally alien world and make it all feel real is kind of trippy. After checking out the gallery below, visit his website here to see more work. You won’t regret it.
