There is a dash of humor and a quiet emotional weight to Alexandre Diboine's largely sci-fi digital paintings. His astronauts contemplate their muted landscapes, and his robots often come with wide-eyed children in tow.

Diboine is a concept artist for advertising and video games, and his blog, deviantART gallery, and Tumblr are filled with some remarkable speed paintings of science fiction and fantasy scenes. The more polished pieces labeled "Boulon" are teasers for a project he's working on with some friends. We'll have to stay tuned to see what comes out of them.
