Pa­trick Balou

Pa­trick learned the ba­sics of art by study­ing the Old Masters, and likes to give his dig­i­tal work a painterly feel. “I un­der­stand the im­por­tance of com­po­si­tion and sto­ry­telling,” he says.

“I re­ally want the fe­male char­ac­ters I paint to look bad-ass and em­pow­ered. The trick is to paint them in char­ac­ter – it’s not about how huge you can make their chests.”

“This paint­ing is a tes­ta­ment of my love for tra­di­tional paint­ings, old Baroque masters and Chi­nese dig­i­tal art. I was par­tic­u­larly care­ful with my brush­strokes – I wanted to make this piece look re­ally painterly.”

“The chal­lenge with this il­lus­tra­tion was to make it creepy, dark and gory, with­out it be­com­ing dis­taste­ful.”
