Randy – aka Vargasni – is an illustrator, comic book artist and concept designer who cut his teeth working as a freelancer in video games, books covers and graphic novels.
More recently, Vargasni has taken on projects for US indie publisher Zharmae Public Press and Spanish small-press outfit Nowevolution Editorial.
The artist has a passion for cinematic, story-led art, and has been experimenting with matte painting techniques. His work usually begins as grey scales, before using various blending modes and applying colour.
1 Kenrath “This guy needed to have an aggressive look. I used a lot of references to try and achieve the correct lighting and expression.”
2 Amb ush survivors “This piece
was my very first time experimenting matte-painting techniques. It was a lot of fun.”
3 White sorc eress “There are so many awesome illustrations all over the internet relating to trading card games, and this is my contribution. I tried to make it original. As with almost all of my paintings, I started in greyscale. Later on, I used different blending modes, then added my colours.”
4 Crow ned by the moo n “I was looking to achieve a more painterly look in this piece, with the focus on strong storytelling.”
