Over the years of attending various comic/sci-fi fantasy conventions, I've had the priveledge of getting to know Tom Fleming.   Tom is one of my favorite Fantasy and Fine Art painters.  His figures and knowledge of human anatomy is apparent through his beautifully stunning works.  His figure paintings and sketches of women of comics has captured the attention of the international world of Fantasy Art and he is considered one of the greatest modern fantasy artists alive today.  His inspiration ranges from Frank Frazetta to Gustov Klimt and he somehow manages to marry the inspirations in his paintings with an almost genius method of color, tones and value ranges with stunning anatomical accuracy that in the end simply creates a beautiful painting.  His work has been featured on the cover of Heavy Metal magazine as well as dozens of various publications. Tom has painted covers & trading cards for almost every major publisher in the comic book industry and has illustrated for some of the most popular gaming companies in the world such as: World of Warcraft, Magic the Gathering, and White-Wolf Publishing. He has won numerous awards in the Fantasy genre including FOUR nominations for the prestigious Chelsey Award!
In 2000 Tom landed a job as the official illustrator for the Jody Foster movie “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys” with animation by Todd McFarlane. Since then, Tom has worked on movies & TV shows such as; “Stateside”, “Stay Alive”, “Surface”, “Major Movie Star”, "Super", "A Cinderella Story 3", "Smile as Big as the Moon"and the hit TV show “One Tree Hill”.  My personal favorites of his works are his elongated paintings of various "romantic styled" fine art paintings of women and men in various states of enlightenment and ecstasy. Check out some of his examples here....
