Looking at KARLIFETZ‘s insane digital artwork is like stepping into a graphic novel world. There’s a vivid realism in his textures that juxtaposes perfectly with the immersive, dreamlike fantasy worlds he creates. His art isn’t gory but it’s got undertones of horror that’s more Poe than it is Carpenter. It’s eerie and threatening, and while most of his characters aren’t actually engaged in violence, they could be at any moment. It’s like he’s catching them before and after the act. Just living their lives, chilling with friends, doing some deep self-reflection.
Not only is the artwork he creates amazing, but he also puts together tutorials showing how he makes his pieces. Below is a new tutorial series he started called Render Revamp, where he takes art submitted by his Patreon followers and puts his spin on it. This is my new ASMR. Check out some of his gorgeous work below.
