    Favorite Artists

    After some searching I was surprised to find no kind of "Favorite Artists" thread, so I thought I would try to start one.
    if there already is something like that, please delete this or whatever.

    well these are mine (at the moment) in no particular order, I'd love to hear some of yours.

    Wayne Barlowe: just incredible, his visions of Hell and alien life are so original and imaginitive, it's beyond description.

    Marko Djurdjevic: not much needs to be said here. amazing figure drawing, edgy, dynamic style, and original design have me hooked.

    Howard Pyle: incredibly beautiful, evocative paintings. "An Attack on a Galleon" has to be seen to be believed.

    Frank Frazetta: again, I don't think he needs much introduction. needless to say, his work's savage energy and raw power are a constant inspiration.

    Wayne Reynolds: really brings new life to the fantasy genre with very dynamic work and badass design. if your imagination needs to be rekindled, this guy is a flamethrower.

    Alexandre Iacovleff: I've only seen three of his paintings, but they're amazing. his portrayals of a Toureg Cavalier captain and the Sultan of Zinder are just stunning. if anybody has more information on this guy, I would be most thankful.

    John Howe

    Angus Mcbride

    N.C. Wyeth :a contemporary of Pyle, and another great.

    Brom

    Albrecht Durer

    "Grunewald"

    Craig Mullins

    Hans Holbein the Younger: his portraits are incredible, but what really turned me on was his "Infantry Battle" drawing.

    Adrian Smith

    Karl Kopinski

    Da Vinci

    Brian Froud

    George Bridgman

    Burne Hogarth

    that's it for now

    Dürer is definitely a fav, also John Bauer, a Swedish childrens book illustrator which sagas hold a special slot in my heart.

    Michelangelo is an icon for me what one man can accomplish, a powerful inspiration.

    I can make a huge list but why make it long when I can make it short. Thanks for sharing, will check out some I haven't heard of!
