Examining the art of the 21st century King of Covers.

No, not the seven extremely badass Worthy that Marko Djurdjevic created to wreak worldwide carnage in the Marvel Universe. I'm referring to the artists that are talented enough to be a part of the mind-blowing creative collective called SIXMOREVODKA. Do yourself a favor and check out the site at http://sixmorevodka.com/
The site is quite impressive and I suspect purposefully overwhelming as its purpose is to solicit new clients. Hagen Hesterberg, Production Assistant at the cutting edge studio, has been extemely helpful and has offered to field any questions that confound me.
The time is long overdue for the most-talented-creators-that-you-haven't-heard-from to get a little spotlight time. I'm going to start with the newest addition and work my way backwards.
On November 1 Ville Kinnunen will be joining SIXMOREVODKA as a Senior Concept Artist. Ville Kinnunen broke into the industry by designing characters for Funcom’s Age Of Conan in Norway. Brilliant designs of costumes, armor and the world of Conan including his fearsome foes were as good as any by the legendary Frazetta! He then took his evolving skills to Bioware where he embellished the Dragon Age universe.
Here is a tame example of his art. I'm a sucker for fantasy landscapes.
