    Who's your favorite line artist?

    Hey everyone!

    I am starting to study lines to try to improve the quality of my own line work, and I want to know; Who is your favorite line artist? Or what is your favorite line art drawing/sketch?

    I've been looking at some work by old comic book inkers, like Jack Kirby, and it's neat stuff. I think I'm learning a little just by examining the sketches. I also looked at a little concept art from Bioshock, which is also insightful.

    So again, who is your favorite line artist or what is your favorite line art sketch/drawing? Let's see some pictures!

    Thanks for the links and images so far guys! I can't say I dig all of the content in the drawings, however the techniques can't be argued with and I think I can learn a thing or two from looking at these.

    thanks again guys! Keep them coming!
