Hopefully the original Art Spotlight Thread will also make it's way over here too. Until then, I guess I'll start another.

Oliver Paass - 13th Street Bowlingheads (http://www.behance.net/gallery/13th-Street-a-Bowlingheads/1860545)

http://vimeo.com/25765998

Quote
We designed special bowling balls together with famous spraygun artist Oliver Paass that look like cut-off heads.
For more than three weeks he made detailed 360° layouts that were sprayed on standard bowling balls.
In several German bowling alleys we swapped the standard balls for these special ones. Additional black balls referred to the German horror TV channel No.1:
13th STREET – Scream your head off!

Aaron Horkey

Never heard of this guy... until now, but I am rather taken with his style. Recent winner and creator of Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar as a Mondo Mystery Movie

l(http://images.fandango.com/MDCsite/images/featured/201108/Jurassic-Park-Aaron-Horkey.jpg)

Quote
For those of you who collect or just want a new one sheet for your wall, Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, is pleased to announce their new licensed poster series for Jurassic Park. The first breathtaking poster features imagery from the iconic final shot of a triumphant Tyrannosaurus Rex from artist Aaron Horkey.

Jurassic Park
Artist: Aaron Horkey
Size: 21" x 39"
Edition: 220

The poster & series was unveiled last evening at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar as a Mondo Mystery Movie, a popular programming series that keeps the film & poster a secret right up until the film rolls. Jurassic Park is the second Mondo Mystery Movie, which sold out in under a minute several weeks ago. The film was shown in a glorious 35mm print and was attended by legendary FX artist, Phil Tippett.

For a generation of moviegoers seeing Jurassic Park in theaters was a momentous event and one that engrained clear memories of seeing dinosaurs walk the Earth once again. "'Jurassic Park' is one of Mondo’s biggest series yet. Along with Star Wars and Star Trek, we’ve seen an equal level of excitement amongst artists to take on this seminal film. We’re incredibly excited about Aaron Horkey’s poster and what’s to come," said Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael.

The Jurassic Park poster series will continue with world-renowned artists rendering their vision of the classic film. A second print is scheduled to be available for online sale timed to the release of the Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy on Blu-ray on October 25, 2011.

The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy arrives on Blu-ray for the first time ever with the groundbreaking films remastered in flawless high definition and hours of bonus features, including an all-new, six-part documentary called Return to Jurassic Park.

Andrew Tarusov

Russian (visionary) artist Andrew Tarusov is taking on the American dream while destroying it simultaneously.

The artist has created his own calendar that's currently being printed for release later this year (they'll be $25 and can be pre-ordered here). The subject? How about super sexy pin-up girls surviving the apocalypse?!

The Apocalypse Tomorrow 2012 calendar was inspired by famed artist Gil Elvgren, an American painter of pin-up girls, advertising and illustration. He passed away way back in 1980

Looks good. I've never heard of him before, but just looking at some of his art, I would say a lot if not all is done inside Illustrator. I will free hand a sketch or design and then go into Illustrator for that same type of finishing style, which is all vector based.

Illustrator Witit Karpkraikaew

This guy is f ucking with our childhood... that bastige

Quote
The internet's affections for the undead and Disney Princesses are perhaps only matched by its predilection for seeing familiar characters in semi-unfamiliar situations. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, these portraits of zombie cartoon royalty by Thai illustrator Witit Karpkraikaew are so extraordinarily creepy I can only look at them in my peripheral vision.

Seriously, that Snow White is making me seriously reconsider a late breakfast. You can find more of Karpkraikaew's artwork at his Deviant Art page (http://clocktowerman.deviantart.com/) — his penchant for bold colors and over-the-top gore brings to mind some of the zanier Thai horror movie posters of the 1980s.

I think I still prefer Campbell's rendition of Disney princesses, who actually kick-started the craze for doing all of these reinterpretations that are currently flooding the market.
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Neumatic on September 13, 2012, 10:58:42 pm
I do like Campbell's princesses (particularly Tinkerbell... rowr) but I want to see them IN something, some narrative where they all interact or something.  Not just pin-ups.

I dig his Ruff Stuff sketchbooks quite a bit but I do wish we had more books coming from him, Wildsiderz and so on.
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Chiprocks1 on September 13, 2012, 11:04:48 pm
The continuation of Wildsiderz will never happen. He makes way too much bank with his prints and calendars and appearances at cons to not even bother with finishing it. I would like to see it be completed, but I'm not holding my breath. Also, Marvel has been sitting on 3 issues of of Spider-Man that he drew like 5 years ago and is waiting for him to complete his run on it before they solicit it for order. This is just a rumor, but it's been going around for quite some time and he has never denied it when asked.
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Neumatic on September 13, 2012, 11:17:35 pm
I totally get that.  It's just kind of aggravating as a reader... especially because so many other artists are trying to "be" him and fall far short.  He's got this humour to his style that his copiers don't.
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Chiprocks1 on September 13, 2012, 11:29:25 pm
Another reason why I don't think we will ever see another issue is that with the majority of his fans that bought the first 2 issues when they came out....they are pretty much long gone. They have moved onto other things. If new issues came out now, I think it would tank and not sell because new readers will that know nothing about the series will be asked to go and buy back issues. He was riding the post Danger Girl wave and anything he put out was going to sell. He can't use that crutch anymore.
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Neumatic on September 13, 2012, 11:39:34 pm
Probably right.  And it's a series I'd never heard of until he told me about it (we were talking caricatures and he mentioned that title-- and it's so clear who all the main cast is based on).
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Chiprocks1 on September 13, 2012, 11:53:15 pm
Natalie Portman, Jack Black, James Marsden, etc...............

At least they know who to call when they turn this into a movie. Ha. That won't happen either.
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Neumatic on September 14, 2012, 12:00:23 am
Especially given that they're all at least THRITY now (Marsden is at least 40).

They were nicely cast but I was hoping for some ironic or unusual casting, I like that sort of thing.  He was using recognizable faces (and locations, the Vasquez Rocks were in there) like it was a movie (and had a trailer which I don't like when comic books do) but it was so short-lived we really couldn't get a chance to dig on that.  I want more "cinematic" feeling comic books... especially because comics don't age like movies or TV shows, since it's art it can feel newer longer.
Title: Re: Art Spotlight Thread
Post by: Chiprocks1 on September 14, 2012, 10:17:25 am
Don't forgot Halle Berry. She will probably want to play yet another comic book character. And the fact that she is the basis for Mirra Martin, I'd say she has the inside track. For this role, I wouldn't say age is a factor.

Australian artist DrFaustusAU

Quote
What started as imaginary covers soon turned into full-blown retellings of classic H.P. Lovecraft tales "for beginning readers," including The Call of Cthulhu, The Tomb, and Dagon (this one is done in the style of Tin Tin). These are fully illustrated, full-length retellings of the classic tales.

Besides stories, DrFaustusAU also blends decidedly more adult pop culture references into a Seussical soup. My favorites include his versions of Evil Dead and Silent Hill.

It would be great to have a proper book. Ya know, there is one program where you can use templates to design your own book and the company will print up a legit book for you. I can't remember the name at the moment, but it's something to think about. Will return once I can think of the service............

I actually dig the new re-design of Angela, courtesy of Joe Quesada. Even though I liked the original version of the character, I always thought McFarlane / Capullo's version was way too busy. This new version is streamlined and practical and yet it still feels very much in line with the original look.

Italian artist Alessandro Diddi, the man behind the anamorphic drawings, said that he wanted his "drawings to put across the message that the eye can trick the mind and make you believe that there are dimensions that are not really there." He succeeded.

Hot Girls in Their Undies Kick Zombie Ass in This Art Series

(http://cdn.fearnet.com/sites/default/files/images/News/GSB/undies1.jpg)

Quote
Artist and illustrator John Masse has taken three things we all love – zombies, scantily-clad ladies, and buckets of gore – and combined them for the ultimate original art series.

(http://cdn.fearnet.com/sites/default/files/images/News/GSB/undies2.jpg)

Quote
Website ZombiePop unveiled (pun intended) this awesome collection of pin-up images by the famous illustrator, appropriately titled “Girls in Their Undies vs. Zombies,” and as the old movie tagline goes, it's exactly what you think it is.

(http://cdn.fearnet.com/sites/default/files/images/News/GSB/undies4.jpg)

Quote
The intrepid young ladies make excellent use of guns, knives, chains, bats, bow & arrow, even a pool cue to fend off the hungry undead clawing at their mostly naked young flesh.

As it gets closer and closer to Comic Con, I've been wondering why Campbell has been so quiet. He usually releases teases of what's in store by this time and so far....nothing. I don't get updates anymore. Not sure if he even post to DeviantArt anymore. So, I had to check over on his Facebook. Still no "new" stuff that's coming. But I did check out his photo gallery and saw these 3 images from Game of Thrones and Mad Men. You may have already been aware of them. But to me, they are new. Enjoy. I would love to see Campbell put together a Hardcover book of nothing but his Celeb Caricatures that he has done over the years.

What if Rockwell illustrated Resident Evil, Captain America, Optimus Prime?

Quote
Canadian freelance illustrator and multimedia designer Marco D'Alfonso imagines what Norman Rockwell's take would have been on modern heroes in this trio of amazing faux Saturday Evening Post covers.

My favorite among the bunch has to be his take on Resident Evil 3 and the gear all video game characters seem to haul around. The print, below, will be part of the 8_bit & Beyond 2 art show opening Aug. 8 at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn. (Inspired by Rockwell's "Liberty Girl.")

(http://cdn3.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/_w4WCcHGby1aiNXiP89IK9ss-LU=/675x0/cdn1.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/368468/BuCsp_XIMAAB23r.0.jpg)

Then there's this amazing Captain America, Rockwell crossover inspired by "The Doughboy and his admirers."

And finally there's D'Alfonso's tribute to Rockwell's "The Tattooist", which features an artist decking out Optimus Prime's shoulder with flames.

Man randomly starts drawing everyone on the train

Simply.....awesome. I rather get a random caricature anywhere but an amusement park. Think about it, you go to an amusement park and get one, there is no story behind. You get one at some random location, completely unaware and you have a story to tell for the rest of your life. Another thing that I found very fascinating is that this artist, without really saying one word is bonding complete strangers through art. Everyone wants to see what the other persons canvas looks like. One last thing, this is really a great way to make quick cash. He doesn't ask for money. He's just drawing for the love of it and gives the art away. But once the recipient sees it, they are compelled to tip, even if they had no intention of doing so. I really wish the guy that video taped this would have posted info about the artist. At least give us his name so that we can search out his stuff online.

Conceptual artist and illustrator Gediminas Pranckevicius posesses an imagination to covet. While most of his digital painting is centered around character design, his larger landscapes seen here are rich in detail, creating impossible but ingenious juxtapositions of water, land, and haphazard architecture. You can see more of his work over on Facebook, and all of these are available as prints via INPRNT.

Brian Dettmer Book Surgeon

Brian Dettmer, a New York-based artist known as the Book Surgeon, uses tweezers, knives, scalpels and other surgical tools to dissect and carve old books into intricate and beautiful sculptures.

Dettmer’s work has a sort of vintage touch to it because he uses old books – maps, encyclopedias, textbooks, manuals, and any other sort of literature that he can turn into an interesting piece of art.

Although his creative process does end up destroying (or adding to, depending on how you look at it) someone else’s creation, Dettmer has a different take on it; “My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception.”

This feather is actually made up of thousands of naked human bodies

Quote
It may not look like it but the image of a feather you see above is actually comprised of thousands and thousands of naked human bodies. Seriously, look at the up close shots of the feather below and you’ll see bodies laid out holding each other to form each string.

Pointed out by MyModernMet, the photo was made by artist Angelo Musco. He shot photos of dozens of live models in strategic poses and then stitched them together in Photoshop. He describes the project:

A Guy Can Draw Any Logo by Hand Perfectly

A graphic designer in London named Seb Lester has about a million followers on Instagram and Facebook, because he can draw the logo of any business by hand.

He posted a video on his YouTube page where he does them for "The New York Times", Honda, Vans, Adidas, and Coca-Cola.  And they're all perfect.

Here's the doodles I did after reading J Scott Campbell's book... put them on DA with a moderate maturity warning on them, since it's bodies with no clothes (or organs or anything on top either), just to be on the safe side, so I don't know if these will show up.

Man, I was real gung ho about these at the time... the magic is really sort of fading away from me.  They're still pretty good, I think, but it's not like a "whoa, I did THAT?" feeling from me anymore.  I think it's more of me realizing I was more skilled than I thought... though I haven't been able to improvise with that new style yet (the placement of hands and feet was always an issue for me, and it hasn't been resolved yet).

Amazing talent.

This artist has imagined “Game of Thrones” and “Star Wars” exist in the same universe, and the results are amazing (https://www.yahoo.com/news/artist-imagined-game-thrones-star-192430533.html)

This is dope.

Watch X-Men Comic Book Artist Whilce Portacio Sketch Bishop (Artists Alley) | SYFY WIRE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYxzOOWDfK0&index=41&list=LLTVgXy5pOO9ff20O1Z1QPMw

I like that SYFY WIRE is actually doing these kinds of videos for artists. Whilce was a HUGE influence on me when I got into Comic Books.
