ArtStation stop: Alexander Forssberg

From landscapes to character close ups, and from fantasy to science fiction, Alexander Forssberg’s work covers a wide field. His ArtStation page is a treasure trove of evocative images. Here are five of my favourites.

Into the Crypt


Anyone who has sent their hero into a dungeon can identify with this image of an epic story about to begin.

Forest faces


Fantastical stone statues (or are they sleeping giants?) contrast with the Victorian styles worn by the woman and child, making this setting potentially different again, nether fantasy nor SF.



Like the forest faces, this art suggest some ancient giant beings. The dress of the characters suggests a different setting this time.

Kepler 186f


Life on an exoplanet is imagined in this piece, drenched in colour.

Viking castle


Looming over the ships and simpler dwellings, the castle occupies a commanding presence on its arch of rock.
