Sci-Fi Art Feature — Joakim Ericsson

Hey there SciFi fans!

Although he was originally a classically trained painter, Joakim Ericsson has now found his calling as a concept artist. Known for his incredibly detailed pieces, his work also stands out because of his expert use of color, and mastery of perspective. He is based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Here are a few of his awe-inspiring visuals:
