At the recommendation of the previously posted artist I now present another "Damn good Russian". Much of his work is taken up with mythology and allegory while other pieces are very traditional bucolic landscapes. Some of the best pieces are either somewhere in between or neither, but judge for yourself. And definitely go to his Flickr site to see incredibly elaborate details.
"The Damned City"
"Walls and Windows"
"Assault the castle"
