Rk Post is another one of my favorite fantasy artists. He does a lot of illustrations for a card game I play called Magic the Gathering; his work is featured on over a dozen cards. The piece I have chosen called “Creepy” I had to browse his gallery for, as I wanted to feature an illustration I haven’t seen before. I love Rk post his attention to the human figure and his intensity for detail. His illustrations can often tell a story of their own. I love “Creepy” for the dark central female figure. The black of her helm and saturated red of her armor make a stark, but powerful contrast to the rather mundane grey background. I do not know the exact size of this piece, but a lot of his work is only around 11x14 inches and is oil on masonite. To see that incredible amount of detail is such a small oil painting blows my mind, and it gives me a lot of respect for Rk Post. The story this illustration interests me as well. The woman appears to be being devoured and in her hands she holds what looks to be a bomb with 1 second left. Her soulless blank stare may be a reflection on how she feels about her sacrifice. I’m not sure what this illustration was created for, but it tells an intriguingly gruesome story.
