In a recent post, we showcased just how awesome the new Fantasy Flight Games take is on the old Legend of Five Rings game. Leading the charge, Le Vuong, an old friend here on Artlords. Full disclosure, we were caught entirely by surprise when we saw his new Legend of Five Rings artwork. It was a HUGE hit over L5R fans and our first blog post covering it received a great response!
However, it came as a shock to me personally when I realized Vuong has only been featured in two tabletop games – Legend of Five Rings and Netrunner. As we featured in the past countless artists for their fantasy artwork, it is clear this is a genre where great art is beyond necessary to succeed. Art realizes the project, it is clear this is a genre where great art is beyond necessary to succeed. Art realizes the project and hooks the audience into this fictional world.
It came as a shock to me because well, as you are going to find out when you scroll down, Le Vuong’s Fantastical Art is expressive. His illustrations make it easy to picture the world, characters, and environments being portrayed in the games he’s worked on. That said, we’re incredible excited that his massive talent is finally being recognized around the RPG and Tabletop game world!

The sense of wonder, of distant yet living worlds, is also something in Vuong’s expertise.
