    Who's your favorite artist?

    My teacher in school keeps saying that everyone draws after someone...or keeps assuming its somebody else's style? which brings up the question whos your artist role-model? I barely got one, no ones art really inspirers me. how about you people?

    I usually dont follow a single artist, i pick and choose pieces that I like. Some exeptions would be Shirow, he has been a long time favorite for me.. And Frezzato I love, also Alphonso Mucha. I think I like a certain specific genre/theme and subject matter over a body of artists works. I really dont see myself as an artist yet, i just admire certain visuals and ideas and try to put down the cumulation of what I like on paper. My stuff is all "fanime" for lack of a better word.

    I like Kev Walker and Jerry DiTerlizzi.
    And I love (esp. the detail) Feng Zhu and Masamune Shirow.

    Carl Critchlow also inspires me a lot. Once I copied one of his drawings (and changed it) don't call me a thief (not going to sell it or anything...)

    thats funny because the people i revere most are the ones i do not resemble at all. its because i do not have the learned skills to draw or paint like them so I admire it even more.

    One of my faves is Tim Burton. His drawing style is really quirky and his design sense seems to be only his.

    Berni Wrightson (less now than before)

    And my personal god: Ian Miller

    If any of you are unfamiliar with Ian Millers work, you should try to get a hold of some of it. He is hard to find, but he used to do a bunch of stuff for Game Workshop. There is a great book that has a good amount of his work in called RatSpie which I had remembered from my old Games Workshop days, but never purchased, and then was lucky enough to find at Forbidden Planet in NYC. They said that they had found a bunch of them sitting around their warehouse and decided to put them back up for sale! Lucky ME!!!

    Here is one of the only things I can find of his work on the web:

    It is true though...I don't try to emulate these guys...I just really enjoy seeing their work...But I guess it all comes though some way or another...
