    Spectacular stuff. Genuinely inspiring. I can write an entire RPG plot out of a single one of some of these drawings.

    Hi Francis,

    I’ve just bought your ‘Extreme Worlds’ book which I really enjoy. My favourite piece was the finished spaceship on page 71 – I can feel the atmosphere coming off the page. I can’t find the image online and was wondering if it’ll be put on your blog at some point in the future?

    Thanks and keep up the excellent work,

    Steve (UK).

    Hi Marc

    Thanks a lot, glad you like my work. As far as graphic novels, I don’t really have time to do that on a freelance basis at the moment.

    Im using your image of the Joker, hes in your concept art portfolio. I found him on a forum or another site and wanted to plug the artwork for a research paper Im using for a Western Art class. I want to make sure to give credit where the credit was due. So any information would be greatly appreciated. I hope Im right in saying it was oil on canvas?

    Thank you in advance and that your works great let me say the space opera, starwars an fantasy stuff is great too.

    hi Jose – sorry for the late response. That would be OK if it is a school research paper. It was created in Photoshop.

    Man, your stuff is awesome! I was at Borbers Bookstore & saw a compilation art book that showcased your artwork. Had to search for “teamgt” once I got home.
    Glad I found your site! I shall watch carefully!
    I’m a graphic designer/sci fi writer, for an Indy action adventure series called DSNG. To see you publish your own stuff & create your own worlds is greately encouraging to me! You are a master of your craft! I’ll try and start a blog soon, as you have greately inspired me! :D Well Done Francis Tsai!

    Hello, I wanted to let you know I will be using the design of the white ship in this image
    as the inspiration for a physical model for this online model contest. http://www.starshipmodeler.com/contest/contest.htm

    I wanted to ask if you had any tips on using colored pencils for pencil drawn drawings I do. Also I was interested if you have any ideas of how I could get started on a proffessional path.

    I must say, It’s inspirational stuff seeing how you reply back to questions! So I’m going to fire away and ask; I’m a Concept Artist studying at NUCA university. My project is primarily focused on environment concept design and I was wondering if you could give me a few tips? What are your golden rules for environment design?

    Thank you!

    Dear Mr. Tsai,
    I am the new QUEST (gifted and talented program) teacher at Steiner Ranch Elementary. Would it be possible for you to come and speak with our students sometime next school year? I think your art, and your message, would be inspiring to this group of kids who think differently.
    Thanks for considering this.

    Ho man, i just discovered your work.
    What an impressive portfolio you got there.

    Hi, like another said I often am inspired by great art like yours. Lately I’ve also been searching for art similar to what I imagined in a couple of sci-fi novellas I’ve written. I especially like your spaceships and people. Do you sell art for cover designs as an illustrator? Would love to hear from you and think you’re inspiritional. Cheers, Grish

    Amazing work and such a variety of it, characters, composition, architectural… The buildings in the ‘environment design’ section are incredible, I’ve rarely seen pieces IMO that interesting.
