I spent over an hour on this guy's website just now. I was entranced. A huge library of work that justifiably needed poring over. Justin "Coro" Kaufman is a Fine Artist by love and a Concept Artist by trade. What I have selected for you is only from his illustrative and work with oil paint. There is so much more to look at like his amazing graphic design work and his 3d lighting projects for space-age metropolises.
Coro has contributed to over 70 AAA and next-gen video game titles and works as the Senior 2nd Art Director for Massive Black Inc. He is also one of the co-founders of ConceptArt.Org which is a good resource for talented artists coming up in the conceptual scene.
His work spans from the firm favourite of mine; Fantasy Mecha towards storyboarding for animations/video-games and aliens pestering bums trying to get a good hit of their crack pipes! Like I said, he covers everything!
Overall, an excellent blend of fantasy, realism, the macabre, technology and brilliance. He has just earned himself an avid fan from now on.......
Please visit his SITE, you won't be disappointed.
