Australian based artist, Scott Payne, is a self-taught visual artist, illustrator and digital artist who has been drawing and creating his whole life. School was a blur of drawing dragons, creatures and comics during class and extending this to various art shows and creative endeavours as a student. A pursuit of a fine arts degree followed and then a foray into the digital world had Scott hooked, with a transition from traditional mediums to digital, Scott was able to pursue his passion for creature and character design and comic art.
Heavily influenced in his early years by Frank Frazetta, John Buscema and Jim Lee, Scott has developed his own unique style and design with his creatures and characters. Scott’s artwork presents across a range of styles including surrealism, personal paintings with an arrangement of colourful elements that tell a story and take the viewer into another world, conceptual art and comic art.
Scott has collaborated with international artists, is currently a feature artist with Corel Painter, worked on commission pieces and delved into design work with some well-known Australian companies.
