In my opinion a good artist will not only come up with great character design, but also bring to life sublime landscapes, worlds of fantasy where many stories could take place. A good artist is a story teller, and Ani Roschier is one of this talented set of people.
Ani, based in Finland, comes up with these amazing pieces. These are only a handful... for much more, visit her/his (unfortunately I couldn't find the artist's gender) DeviantART portfolio. Tell us how do you like these! Cheers. ;)
