For Future Reference: Raymond Swanland...

This artist is especially lovely when it comes to the use of depth and movement in his work:

I think what stands out in these images is the use of light and how it draws the eye to certain areas of the picture. the use of light also allows him to suggest shapes in the distance that the viewer can't quite see, perhaps because they're obscured by smoke or atmosphere, creating greater depth and menace too.  The detail in these images are fantastic too, in the image above on the character's head alone there's a plethora of detailed engravings that, combined with the soft light, make her seem ethereal. Lovely, lovely stuff to come back to for inspiration :D
