My first ART post here, on Generation Bass 🙂 As a huge art fan and designer, I gravitate towards imagery first and foremost and the obscure and bizarre (BizArt) styles seem to draw the most attention. As a musician for 75% of my life, my main passion is in the realms of sound but sound itself is a vision captured by the ears. I am somewhat synesthetic in that sense, all sound has a color to my mind and often it even forms scenes and landscapes. For this reason, I consider what I do in the studio as painting with a palette of sound in the canvas of my mind’s eye. It’s hard to say whether literary arts or visual arts are my second-most favorite forms of expression…or if the culinary arts take the cake.
Below are some pieces I came across in my travels through Google images and/or my Facebook feed. The first being Adam Hughes. After some research, I found that he is a comic book artist and that I’m not really into most of his work aside from this lovely Crocodilian sex-goddess…

These are some fantastic creatures from another planet…a bit of science and art intertwined but mostly fantasy. Science Fiction is a favorite topic of mine in both film and visual art.
Here’s a bit of background on this Ken Barthelmey, in his own words:
Born 1989 in Luxembourg I started drawing and sculpturing at an early age. I have always been passionate about art and all creative things in general.
My focus is on creating Creatures and Characters for the entertainment industry but I also have a passion for environments.
I always push myself to create authentic and unique designs. To reach that goal I invested a lot of time in studying the anatomy of animals and humans. Quality is very important to me. Whether traditional or digital media, I constantly try to advance my techniques and skills.
In 2013 I was honored with the Chesley Award for Best Magazine Cover Illustration, announced and presented by ASFA at the 71th World Science Fiction Convention in San Antonio. My work has also won several other awards, such as the 3DTotal Excellence Award, CGArena Excellence Award, CG Gallerie Award, The Golden Eye, The Golden Topia Award and Infected by Art Gold Award.”
