Fantasy Oil Painting, Art by Michael C. Hayes

Away from the digital art for a change, I came across Michael C. Hayes’s oil paintings and thought he had some interesting artworks. Granted, many of them I thought had a lot of fan service, but I did find some hidden gems despite his obvious fanboy-dom.

Joie De Vivre, 2014

Many of them, like the pictures above and below, have such beautiful hues of red and gold. Honestly, I love the color palettes for so many of his paintings. They reminded me of the famous oil painting The Lament for Icarus by Herbert James Draper, one of my all-time favorites. Feel free to check out his website artofmike.artstation.com and his new published art book.

For the curious, The Lament for Icarus 1889, Herbert James Draper
