The Art Of Tobiee

Tobias Kwan is an Irvine based artist working at Ready at Dawn Studios, the studio behind two successful portable God of War titles: Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. Tobias has a painterly, brush driven style that's colorful and emotive, filled with movement. Slightly reminiscent of Jeff Simpson, who also emulates a more traditional style via a digital medium.

Trained at Sheridian, Kwan has kept himself busy over the years, transitioning from a more anime-centric style into a really beautiful, illustrative style. Like quite a few artists in the game industry, his personal work is a true departure from his production oriented pieces for various franchises, a common trend between visual devs who at times crave freedom from strict style guides and external (And often misguided) creative input. Check out more of Kwan's awesome work after the break!
