Bryan Lee will no doubt rack up a few fans based on the eclectic collection of characters found within his impressive deviantART portfolio. After all, when you’ve painted childhood favorites like Super Mario, Tom and Jerry, Superman, Catwoman, the cast of South Park, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Goku and Chi Chi from Dragon Ball and more, you’ll likely catch people’s attention through nostalgia alone. But don’t let that fool you into thinking Bryan Lee relies on gimmicks to garner a fan following, because his impressive rendering technique is what’s truly worthy of attention.

Each one of Bryan Lee’s illustrations exemplifies an artist at one with art fundamentals like value, shape and form. He’s so fluent with digital rendering that he can conjure up ludicrous images, like the Hulk playing tea time with two young girls, and execute it at a level even master illustrators would find intimidating.
