I recently stumbled upon yet another awesome illustrator named Steve Sampson (aka “thedarkinker”). Couldn’t find much info about the guy but knows that he’s from the UK and lives in Brighton. After going though his portfolio it was a done deal, he has to get his own feature on From up North! And as always you can find more of Steve’s work on his website and his profile on CG-Society.

And you can also find a great walk through of his, in my opinion, greatest piece “RedRum” over at CG-Society. Check it out here.
