I always like threads like these whenever they come up!

I cannot put mine in any particular order though, with all the different styles of artwork around, it doesnt seem fair to say one mayb be better than another. Although this is just what I believe.

These are only a handful of the artists I like, and there are some who I will have stupidly missed out here.

Mike Allred
Chris Bachalo
John Romitta Jr.
Mike Mignola
Terry Dodson
Steve Ditko
Frank Miller

Just for a bit of fun, I like these two artists:
Roger Cruz
David Lafeunte

There are more I like as well, but these are the guys I look out for!

Hmmm...

1. Ryoji Minagawa
2. Kelley Jones
3. Jim Aparo
4. Akira Toriyama
5. Darby Conley

Additional people who could be on the list: Tomas Giorello, Bill Waterson, Doug Mahnke... and perhaps even Raphael (cheap, so cheap! But... we all love early 16th century paintings, don't we? Good ol' Raffaello. Or are we Turner people here? No, not Michael Turner! Joseph Mallord William Turner, the AMAZING lanscape painter.)

If you can list more go for it, I just thought 5 would be easier.
