More on Arthur Ranson

The above is another favourite drawing from one of my favourite artist type guys, Arthur Ranson. Taken form a strip called Shamballa published by 2000AD sometime in the 90's (I'll chuck a link below so I don't get sued by anyone). I'm pretty sure it's based on some Tibetan temple somewhere. Probably in Tibet I guess. The way this guy worked was with a light-box that could change the size of the pictures he was working from and inks. He got a lot of flak from 'tracing' stuff, but it takes skill make something look this good. The ends justifies the means, unless it's war or a road trip to Slough.
