Daniel Dociu is a brilliant artist, in every definition of the word. My inspiration & drawing technique are from him & his masterpieces of Art.

As a Comic Book artist myself, Im often asked where my technique & inspiration comes from, when I say "Daniel Dociu", Im mostly looked at with puzzled expressions. My next words are "Just wait another year or so...you'll know who he is, trust me".

Could not go to a more talented & brilliant person.

Bravo!

All Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 art is beautiful. ArenaNet are truly hiring the best concept artists in the business.

GW2 Concept art truly is the best work I've ever seen, and i love how they incorporate that art style into the ui and graphics style. Congrats Daniel!

Well deserved, the art in this game I've seen so far rivals games like FFXIV for concept and design and that says a lot.

I don't think any games recently released even comes close other than FFXIV art style-wise this good, so looking forward to actually giving the game a real go when released.

When I studied under Daniel, to be honest I was a little dissapointed because I never got to look at his art or style in any real detail...... that, and he was like a fish out of water teaching faceless people on the internet.

Kekai on the otherhand was fantasic, not only as an artist, but he's a good teacher too. Swears alot mind you, which I found enlessly entertaining.

I expect that Futurepoly will have another Online Masters class next year.
Now if only Stokes can get around to teaching that 3d modelling coarse he promised months ago.

I am not a fan of the mixing of swords/guns/robots in GW2 but the art is fantastic.

His art is great, no doubts there. Still my personal fave is Hans Werner Sahm. These two have similarities, but I like the scenery a bit more clear and not as, for lack of a better word, "painterly".

I must say I love the idea of mixing guns with swords and fireballs in GW2 against all the nay-sayers. And Daniel has an awesome style, I can't say much about it since I'm out of my element talking about art (more of a numbers guy here) but I must say he is incredible.
