Johnny Dombrowski

I think a lot of digital artists rely too much on certain tools to give their work a dramatic vibe, and end up creating one dimensional pieces whose aesthetic is defined only by its digital nature. However, Johnny Dombrowski's digital work is dramatic and surprising, and utilizes the best parts of digital editing without letting the medium overtake it. His line-work is very clean, but still super expressive and painterly, and his use of limited color palettes with only small tone and hue variation takes advantage of the kind of subtlety that is often only possible through digital coloring. Of course, technique aside, I also just love the mysterious and deadly vibe of his work, and how he always manages to suggest more stories lurking beneath the surface of each image. Check out his blog or website for more work.
