Pic of the Week . . . Tang Yuehui

This week I've decided to return to the art of Tang Yuehui. I'm a big fan, despite it being digital art - which is a talent in itself I suppose. I have artistic talents, but I've never tried to create something digital. I'm not sure I have what it takes to create something as spectacular as this. So I give credit where it's due.

Tang Yuehui, everybody. The gallery on his website is worth checking out. He has some fantastic pieces and it was difficult to choose one for today. So why did I choose this one? Well, as a fantasy writer it's inspiring. Imagine he's one of your characters. What a scene this image would create. What are his circumstances? Is he being trapped or is he being born, so to speak? Maybe he was cursed and now he's just being released? Ah, it brings the imagination to life . . . I can even feel a piece of flash fiction being written around the corner. Hmmm . . .

But in the mean time, enjoy and have a fantastic weekend!


  1. You always post the best artwork! I love seeing this stuff. It's inspiring.

  2. Where does the tree end and the man begin?

  3. Cool picture!I can see him as turning almost completely into the tree.


  4. Thanks guys, and welcome E.Arroyo...

    This picture makes you think, doesn't it? Next time you pass a big, old, knotty oak tree, you're going to be finding yourself wondering just what's inside - or at least I am, despite the fact I know I'll only find wood lol...
