Craig Mullins is an American digital painter, and world famous concept artist. He has created art for books, video games and films. He is often considered to be one of the first to pioneer in the field of digital painting.
His works are inspired by John Singer Sargent and Frank Frazetta.
He was born in California on 1964 and moved at the age of three to Ohio.
When he was 18 old years, he went back to California and he went to Pitzer College in Claremont, California, for two years. Then he studied at Art Center College of Design to study product design and illustration.
He started out as a transportation designer and got a job at Ford in Detroit. But he returned to Art Center to study Illustration because discovered that his design sense was a little bit too extreme for the car industry.
He got his BFA at there in 1990. Since then, he has worked on many projects as concept artist, illustrator and matte painter.
He realized that the digital era freed him from all geographical constraints, so he stated that he is trying to stay in as many areas of illustration as possible.
Mullins has illustrated cards for the Magic: The Gathering collectible card game.
~Impressions~ I like his illustration because it is very beautiful and so fantastic style. I thought especially landscape painting used for card games etc is very delicate so it is wonderful.
