The Art Of Hwei

I kind of have a crush on Hwei Lim's art. Aside from the fact that it channels elements of some of my favorite artists, especially Yoshitaka Amano's gestural sumi ink heavy style, her choice of subject matter hits a certain resonance with me. The Malaysian illustrator's work shows off some amazing confidence in her line art, with flowy, uninterrupted lines that appear to be captured in a limited number of bold strokes. If you're aware of the difficulty of working with ink and it's unforgiving qualities, you'll definitely be in awe of Hwei's abilities.

Thematically Hwei mixes it up, doing a mix of fanart for franchises including DOTA 2 (Drow Ranger pictured above), JoJo's Bizzare Adventure, as well as a healthy amount of original comics and illustrations. For a refreshing dose of colorful, bright illustrations, check out more of Hwei's art after the break!
