45 A Noble Quest – Digital Art by Anndr

Anndr is one of the best digital artists in Ukraine. He has worked with some of the biggest international names in gaming; designing characters and background for a multitude of games. Photoshop CS5 is one of his main tools. Some of Anndr’s characters are androgynous while others are unmistakably female. Even the males are a bit on the feminine side, then again, they’re elves. Attention to detail are one of the things that makes Anndr stand out. His character’s costume, pose, and expression are all taken into account. I’m looking forward to more of his spectacular work in the future.
