Jason St. John Wright is an artist who should be well known within the art community for his wicked illustrations as much as for his four-part name. Whether it's a nun dual-wielding two menacing swords or a soldier brandishing an assault rifle, it seems this American digital artist loves inserting weapons into his subjects' capable and well-rendered hands.

An affinity for weapons isn't the only thing that sets Jason St. John Wright apart from his peers, however. Wright paints in a pseudo-realistic style that's often employed by concept artists and he stands toe to toe with some of the best I've seen. Where his work truly shines though is in his personal interpretations of pop culture characters, rendering subjects like Johan Hex, Marcus Fenix from Gears of War and The Predator even better than their creators.
