Welcome to another edition of Artist spotlight, where I spotlight one of my favorite artists from the anime/manga/comic field. The first entry which covered artist Junko Mizuno can be found here:
The artist I chose for today’s entry is Gonzalo Ordonez, best known under his pseudonym Genzoman.
While he is not of any Japanese decent (hails from Chile), much of his art is anime like or follows the anime style.
His artwork may seem familiar to many as he has done many works for various companies. A majority of his art is showcased in books from his parent company, Udon Entertainment. He published his own book with Udon showcasing his art on myths and legends, such as this one of Gaia.
Most of his work with Udon also covers major video game titles such as Street Fighter and Darkstalkers. This includes comics and tribute books.
He has done numerous works for Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind World of Warcraft and Overwatch. Most of his pieces show up in the form of commissions or inside various Blizzard games, like this piece from the Hearthstone card game.
He does have a Deviantart site, which he showcases personal work, comics, and fan art pieces of nerd/movie/comic book/anime characters. Here are some of my personal favorites.
