When I was at concept design academy, I kept hearing today's artist's name, over and over again,usually with reverence and awe. When I did the research, I understood why. He mostly does concept art for live action movies and video games (although I did really like his Magic: the Gathering cards). He blends 3D, photography and painting together to create something with absurdly strong levels of realism. He's a beast!
Seth Rutledge is a visual developer and concept artist for the animation and video game industries, a photographer and a coffee snob living in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before he discovered illustration, he received a CSCI/Math degree from UNC-Charlotte, and has lived and worked all over the United States and Canada. He has run marathons, taught English in Japan, been CTO for a pharma marketing company and done fashion photography in NYC. Seth has two albums he wrote and played keyboards on, and he plays the theramin whenever he gets the chance. Seth spends so much time in coffee shops drawing that he is mentioned in online reviews. He would love a career drawing elves and goblins for a living.
