Beyond Reality – The Art of Yohann Schepacz

I recently stumbled upon the website of artist Yohann Schepacz and was taken aback by some of the sweeping landscapes, mechanical sketches, inspiring vistas, and just damn good art. Below you’ll find a sample of some of my favorites, but be sure to check out the rest of his site for some amazing stuff. There you’ll find a wide variety of subjects, on a variety of mediums.

Some alien specimens that could be found in some Exo-Naturalist’s handbook.

 

A futuristic expedition?

 

Is that a Triforce I see?

 

Battles waged in the snow are hell.

 

Once they turn it on, I don’t think they’ll be able to shut it down…

 

A kid fighting a dragon with a freeze-ray on a hoverboard? I would DVR this all day, all night.
