Jorge, aka Jorem, studied illustration and graphic design, before launching into his freelance career. He believes the best art is built on solid line work.
“I find it really helpful,” he says, “to develop good, clear line work. It’s something to paint on, without encountering problems such as missing parts or confusion about the overall direction of the piece, which would make me undo and redo many times.”
Jorge recently began experimenting with “a more three-dimensional point of view” in his art, which he hopes to hone in future pieces.
Ice and Scales “I wanted to convey the immense size of the dragon to the viewer. I achieved this by depicting tiny figures in the snow, and also making the dragon’s body too big to fit in the frame of the image.”
Drow Sacrifice “I love the Forgotten Realms books and I felt compelled to paint this image because I think a race of evil elves is unique in fantasy stories. I was also challenging myself. I placed an eerie light at the bottom of the piece that gives the scene a feeling of witchcraft – appropriate for a sacrifice.”
