I currently like Bill Henson mainly cause im studying him for school hes a photographer but hes mainly regarded as an artist becasue many of his photoes resemble paintings from the old masters which is whay i like him
Ive always loved Van Gogh's painting style even the silly git shot himself and cut his ear off
there are many others on the tip of my tounge but i cant quite remmeber there names

I don't mind too much. I can always delete them later, which I probably will.

I'm actually thinking of making this a sticky. Even though there's some of these are in the bookmarks in the tutorials and refs section, I don't see why they should be together. It might be nice to have a separate list for inspiration.

Oh, and since I'm here, here's another:

[edit] Actually, Wiggle, if you don't mind me hijacking your first post, I might go ahead and edit it and make this a sticky. I think it's a useful thing to have.

I guess with lots of gallons of coffee each and everyday they have consumed. It's just a way to compete yourself...

bottom line, if you like what you do and you know it's your passion. It really doesn't matter coz you're really enjoy of your work. Don't you think so???

Looking at all these artist's works, makes me wonder how many nervous-breakdowns were endured or gallons of coffee comsumed to achieve their level.

Mmm...wouldn't this thread be better suited in the member's lounge?

You'll have to look around for his art, but it's the best of design there is imo. He did all the modertech look for Blade Runner and Aliens, and various other movies. Simply bad-ass

Brother, I'm a whole different game from Liquid!

Heh, couldn't resist!

Yeah, I know he gets commisioned to do that stuff, and that his paychecks must be huge, but still, it seems like a waste of talent to me.

my personal fav is Derek Hess he has this style that plays off a strong sense of anatomy and the human figure...but also has his own artistic flare to it...hes done a lot of cd covers and flyers(sp?) and stuff. But you can just check out his site to see what im talking about.

Good thread, lots of great artists listed.

Here are some of my favorites that weren't mentioned. All their art can also be found on conceptart.org:


Marko Djurdjevic - wicked concept artist, his site is down right now, but it use to be djurdjevic.de. You should still be able to find some of his stuff on conceptart.org forums, as well as a small gallery on the front page.

Wesley Burt (wes9000) - His site doesnt have much, but what it does have is great. http://www.wesleyburt.com/ You can find more at conceptart.org

Andrew Jones - This guy does concept art for Nintendo, and did major work for Metroid Prime. Couldn't find a site for him, other than the small gallery on the conceptart.org front page. However, here's a link to a forum where he posts self-portraits he does almost every single day! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=9

Kevin Llewellyn - This goes does a lot Renaissance-styled work. Warning though, his site contains a lot of nude and cadaver studies: http://www.kevart.com/pages/menu_pg.html

Oh and for those who dont know, you can find a number of works by classical artists, with many high-resolution pics over at http://www.artrenewal.org/
Its a really good resource if you're looking to do some master studies.

Those are all my favorites that haven't been mentioned so far. Hope you like them.

Mike Deodato, amazing and realistic artist.

Jonboy Meyers....gotta love this fella. His art has a great manga taste to it.

And John Romita JR, amazing and easily mentionable.

I've always had a soft spot for Mike Mignola's work, ever since "Gotham by Gaslight".
I also like Andrew Bawidamann: http://www.bawidamann.com He does a lot of pin-up style work.
And as a third (hard to choose just three), I'll go with Range Murata. I absolutely love the retro-futuristic style he uses in most of his drawings (His book "Re: Futurhythm" was one of the better purchases I've made).

Bill Watterson does truly rock like nothin' else.

From the East: Hiroaki Samura who does Blade of the Immortal is wickedly good. Especially his pencil stuff. It makes me cry.

From the West: Trent Kaniuga. (http://www.trentkaniuga.com) You probably haven't heard of him. He's done some underground books like "CreeD" and also some mainstream such as the recent Ghost Rider miniseries. He also does stuff for Capcom and lots of Anime DVD covers. He is THE man - he's a little like Joe Mad in that he combines Eastern art with Western art but he is way more stylish. Rockin' stuff!
