Artists of Capcom

In classic Fanthoman train of thought derailment fashion, let me tell you (as if you didn’t know) that the guys who do the Capcom illustrations for the Capcom VS series are simply amazing. I am guessing they are some sort of studio, but the two names I hear more often are Shinkiro and Bengus and their art is truly amazing … I came across some of their work while looking for the cover art for the game cover series and it reminded me that I had never written anything about them, and that’s really unfair as the book they put out about Marvel vs Capcom is one of my favourite artbooks ever.

Drool all you want, it’s your computer after all!!!

Improbable crossovers

As you might have seen on the collage I posted a few posts ago with my collection of inter-company crossovers, I am a bit obsessed with them at the moment. The quality is generally very poor but there’s something inherently fun about them.

I would like to take this moment to call for a minute of silence to the following crossovers, which might never happen:

Except the one with Darkseid and Thanos, of course … It’s already happened!

And, as a bonus, the King wanted to join the party too:

A week of art: Aaron kuder

Time to highlight Mr. Aaron Kuder, already working for the big ones and with a great style that reminds the stylings of Frank Quitely or Tony Moore. Like the other artists featured this week, we can’t wait to see anything new that gets published …

A week of art: Tradd Moore

Here is another great artist who’s been getting a bit more (very deserved) attention lately, Tradd Moore. If you want to enjoy more of his hyper-kinetic art, try either of the Luther Strode books (the only one in trade at the moment is The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, Vol. 1), the level of detail is insane!

Seems he’s getting more and more cover work from Marvel these days, so I guess sequential art from Marvel cannot be far behind.

A week of art: Rafael Grampá

I will try to post a few drawings by comic artists I like every day this week. We start with a few drawings of the excellent Rafael Grampá … Get yourself a copy of Mesmo Delivery if you haven’t, good stuff.
