Jason Chan is an artist who does mostly fantasy art for book covers and game concept work. Most of his pieces are painted digitally. He has an excellent eye for detail and has a more realistic way of presenting his characters that make them all immensely interesting to look at. He also manages to set up these fantastical spaces that the characters occupy, making you feel as if you are looking through a window to a different, much more interesting world.
Most importantly, though- for me, at least- is his use of color. The palettes he uses can take his already well-crafted spaces and give them a whole new level of atmospheric mood. It's obvious that he pays extreme attention to the color schemes he works in. He also uses color in his representation of dramatic lighting in a way that makes all of his work seem as if it's glowing.
