If there has ever been a work of art featuring ROM I would describe as beautiful this one by Hyeondo Park would be it. I'm sure most of you have seen it already and although I usually feature art on this blog that is not as easy to find I made an exception for this one. To me this piece is just perfect in every way and I'm going to explain why. ROM's armor looks great. The shading, the details and the color are superb. Also what is good here is the anatomy from a figure drawing stand point. But in many ways what really makes this painting so good is the setting. The colors are somewhat soft, yet bold and give it depth. The scenery reminds me of those astrological photos of some sort of newly formed nebula NASA publishes sometimes. I love the way ROM is slowly rising up through that cosmic dust. The artist really put some serious thought and time into the setting for this painting. If you just sit back and relax your eyes while looking at this for a few seconds it almost seems to move as if your watching a beautifully drawn animation clip. Some information I was able to find on this explained that blue pen was also used in this water color painting and it had some photoshop work done on it.
