    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.

    Crumb
    Mucha
    Arthur Rackham
    Gustav DORE
    Durer
    Ralph Steadman
    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:

    All that have been said before, and John Singer Sargent... no one mentioned him yet. For shame! Jason will scold you all I'm sure.

    Oh and Tim Bradstreet, and Burne Hogarth... almost forgot them!

    Jerome Witkin eh?

    Hehe, I had him as a professor at Syracuse University in New York State. He is a very INTERESTING person.

    He was my anatomy professor and he liked to take us to the morgue (which was cool, but he seemed to enjoy it maybe TOO much). He also had quite a large collection of human skulls. Nice guy though. His brother is pretty well known too: Joel Peter Witkin, upon whose photographs Nine Inch Nails' video for closer was based on.

    Difficult - and most haven´t got anything to do with the stuff I´m doing, never felt much "influenced" ...

    Harold Foster - with whom all began for me ...
    Hieronymus Bosch
    Jan van Eyck
    Jan Vermeer
    Rembrandt
    William Turner
    Caspar David friedrich
    Van Gogh
    Edvard Munch
    George Grosz
    Picasso
    Magritte

    From more or less contemporary illustrators but I like Frazetta, Michael Whelan, Angus McBride, Gerry Embleton and Graham Turner.
