    Top 10 Digital Painters

    Just wondering you do you guys consider the top 10 digital painters. And I don't mean just concept artists or fantasy artists etc. But who is really pushing digital paint to new limits?

    Sometimes it's hard to know what you mean about "digital painters" though.

    A lot of people do the beginning sketches traditional and takes it digital. Some makes a full drawing or painting and then takes it digital. Some starts out digital and keep going from there.

    You mean anyone using some kind of software to enchance their picture?

    I'm a big fan of Whit Brachna's work. I think he's "pushing" digital painting by his brushes that mimic traditional mediums.

    Obviously "top" is pretty subjective, but I think Andrew Jones is up there as far as pushing the limits of integrating different kinds of programs and yeilding highly recognizeable results. Most digital painters, however impressive they may be, don't stand out from eachother very well.

    I think linda bergkvist is pretty well known for mastering digital art in her own way as well.

    Hm.

    I'd have to say Craig Mullins.
    In fact, I'd say he's probably the 20 best digital painters out there.

    I agree with Squidmonk3j. Craig Mullins is probably one of the few "real" masters of the digital medium. His tradition work is just the same. Linda B. has mastered something else entirely.
