rk post
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
A farmboy from Illinois with a gift for sketching, rk post was planning on a career as a veterinarian until illustration finally took over in his extensive college experience. By his graduation from Northern Illinois University in 1994, rk post was freelancing for the fantasy gaming industry doing interior illustration for several major game companies, gradually teaching himself how to paint with acrylics and eventually oils. rk garnered a staff illustration position at TSR and after its acquisition, continued in this capacity with new parent company Wizards of the Coast painting cover illustrations for games and novels. Passionate about expanding his skill set, rk moved into 2D and 3D art for videogames in addition to his ongoing freelance illustrations for Magic the Gathering and other franchises. He currently works full time as a senior artist for Big Fish Games.
Rk’s freelance career continues to flourish, with clients including White Wolf, WizKids, Fanpro, Microsoft (Mythica, X Box), LucasFilm, 20th Century Fox (both Aliens VS Predator), Sega (Dreamcast), Nintendo, Ballantine Books, Science Fiction Book Club, Hasbro (televsion and animation), Marvel Entertainment, DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics, the History Channel, and Blizzard Entertainment (Daiblo 2, Worlds of Warcraft) and SOE (The Agency). rk post published his first volume of collected works in the hard cover release, Postmortem: the Art of rk post. Though this first edition has completely sold out, it still appears on as one of the more valuable fantasy art books in trade. A second volume continues to be in the works.

Omg!!!! Look who i found! : )) 
I love your art! It's clean and there's something aristocratic, proudish, in the beings you depict, and these are the qualities every fantasy character essentially needs to have! I've been a Magic the Gathering player and game art enthusiast for some years in the past, and you are one of my top artists! Thanks :-)

Yes, I agree. It's TOO MUCH like Brom. Good works indeed but I was wondering if wouldn't be better to develop an original style instead of taking "inspiration" from others?
