Claris (sentimentalromantic)

Thomas Canty is described as a New Romantic artist. If you read fantasy or urban fantasy novels at all, you've seen his artwork. He has a very distinctive style using watercolors and ink, which is pretty unusual these days. He also tends to use a similar palette over and over, featuring warm creamy tones. Another tradmark is an emphasis on crinkled folds of cloth. Most of the characters tend to have similar, very pre-Raphaelite faces (high cheekbones, very full mouths, Roman noses, deep-set eyes).

Biography of Thomas Canty at Endicott Studios. If he has his own website, I can't find it. Most of these images are a few years old.

Warning: These images are REALLY LARGE. If you prefer, you can go to the Photobucket directory for Elegans, which has thumbnails.
