When I first decided to work with artists in China, it was for one reason alone. Artists in China still hold traditional painting values in high regard.
Not long ago, when I was in school, I found it hard to learn traditional drawing and painting from my teachers. I would arrive at a new school and find perhaps a couple that could teach and do what they were talking about. The USA (and Europe)had from the 1920's - 1990's shunned traditional art learning as unnecessary. The methods of the traditional masters were ignored. In China, this is just not the case. The same teachings that were popular in France in the 19th century, or Russia in the 1950's Socialist Realist period, are still thriving in China.
The rich tradition of Chinese painting and refined eastern/western composition and image making theory is a powerful mix. In my search for artists with such knowledge, I found ZhangLu and/or he found us.
Since then, ZhangLu has been working as a concept artist at MB Shanghai. He is working directly with me for these videos which will go a long way to helping support this community. We are lucky to have ZhangLu with us. His work is of very high skill and his spirit stands out from the crowd. His art is unique and I am happy to have had the chance to work on these videos with him. He is able to capture soul in his work, and saves the humanity of his subjects in the pixels he paints.
Here are a few more images for you all to enjoy: I am happy to see others appreciating what I too see in ZhangLu. His work is amongst my favorites.

Wow this is honestly my first comment i give on the site besides my own sketchbook. But you change my habbid i just have to say i love your art. Its reallistic but has a very distinct style at the same time just mind blowing. Very inspiring hope to be at your level some day.
Thanks for all the kind words everyone. I really enjoy painting and it is nice to hear that people enjoy the art. I have made lots of paintings this year and make more every day. I will post more soon. For now, here is a wizard painting I made recently. I hope you like it. Thank you.
