Art of Science Fiction 060: Ioan Dumitrescu


Today’s science fiction artist is so talented, you’d have a hard time believing his designs are concepts only.

Romanian artist, Ioan Dumitrescu is a freelance concept designer and illustrator in the film and game industry. He has worked on games like World of Mercenaries, Crysis 3Gears of War: Judgement, and many others. Ioan was also the organiser of the Behind the Iron Curtain Concept Art and 3D Workshop held in Bucharest in 2012.

Below is a small collection of his work. Each image links back to the place of origin. Enjoy!

Atmospheric and detailed, Ioan’s concept designs feature realistic future worlds and machines that fire the imaginations.

One of the things that sets science fiction apart from fantasy is the “What if?” question. What if we could terraform an alien planet? What if you could travel to the Kuiper Belt and explore the origins of our solar system?

Science fiction explores thousands of “what if” scenarios and science fiction art visualises them. And the more plausible fiction and art can make them seem, the easier it gets for us to suspend our disbelief.

Leave me a comment below and tell me about the “what if?” scenarios you daydream about.
