I mentioned him in your other thread, but I have nothing but praise for Ganbat. This mongolian guy can put tons of expression into a few strokes of a pen, or create detailed masterpieces. Page through his sketchbook to see his stuff. Some of the more detailed stuff is further in. I really love his style, very unique IMO.

here's a list of artists that I know

Fantasy

Classic dungeons and dragons

Keith Parkinson
Larry Elmore
Jeff Easley

These three are the more famous of the dungeon and dragons artists.

Comic book artists

Michael William Kaluta
Charles Vess

There really isn't a gallery in Charles Vess' site. But look through the site and you'll find a lot of pictures. If you can find Stardust or the book of ballads I would recommend that you look at the artwork that he did.

Tim Bradstreet

Has done a lot of covers for comic books. His artwork for Hellblazer is my favorite. Has also done the artwork for the roleplaying game Vampire: the masquerade from White Wolf

Alex Ross

His specialty is super heroes. He's an amazing artist. Very realistic style.

Lord of the rings

John Howe

Alan Lee (sorry couldn't find his site)

These two are the concept artists for the Lord of the rings trilogy.

There is also a roleplaying game called Withcraft. I find their artwork very interesting. They have the first edition of the game as a free download.

Witchcraft RPG

Man am I stupid. I forgot Frank Frazetta. His style is very representative of the pulp era: "Sci-fi" and "Sword and sorcery". I found some of his art of flickr.

That is cool! But, I love Giger's work and that to me... well I would never buy it, I know someone on GMC has a Giger model, I just don't know, it seems a bit.. simple?

Edit: No that just doesn't do justice. sad.gif

I'm not really into art, but Theodor Kittelsen sure kicks ass. Burzum have used his art for album covers.









This is probably not what you are looking for, but I just posted it anyway smile.gif

Might not be what you're after Uncreator but I'd suggest Francisco Goya (Spanish artist from the 1800s). Goya did a whole series of paintings during his 'black paintings' period that include things like a a witches sabbath, Saturn eating his son and so on.

Somewhat more up to date Picasso's 'Guernica' is always worth a look - albeit not in the style that you use. And also Anselm Kiefer.

Cheers,
Tony
