I found Ryan Lang when I was perusing Artstation one day and his work caught my eye. He is a freelance concept artist who has worked on titles such as Disney’s Big Hero 6, and Wreck-it Ralph.
Lang’s work has the right amount of realism to be visually satisfying without seeming too cartoonish(childish), but you will not confuse it with a photograph. This amount of realism drew me to his art because I feel that you should not worry about your work looking exactly like your reference photos, otherwise why not just use a camera. So check out Ryan Lang’s portfolio on Artstation and see if you feel the same.
