I'm new to comics, but the 2 stand out artists that I have noticed (Aside from Alex Ross who I think is great) so far are Dell Otto and Sorrentino. I loved the Dell Otto B&W Version of the DKIII Bulletproof Exclusive.

Unfortunately neither work on the comics that I collect :(, although Sorrentino did do a 1:25 Deathstroke #1 Cover which I loved.

Nice drawings. His current DC work is much better than his earlier Marvel work.

 

Just curious, but I couldn't help but notice most of the characters do not have feet or the feet are obscured. And on one of them with feet, Superman's back foot is ... weird. Is he another artist that hates drawing feet?

 

Has he ever done interior work or is he strictly a pinup artist?

Love Dell'otto's art. He did one of the best among the million variants for DKIII as well:

He was born mostly as an illustrator. Here are some of his early 2000s works done in Italy, while he was already working for Marvel. Calendars based on famous movies for our Arm of Carabineers.

This one was not used anywhere, I believe. It’s an illustration of the Smurfs he did by himself, printed in a limited run of 150 copies (signed).

You know who hates drawing feet? Go pick up any Hellboy trade paperback and see how long it is before you see feet not obscured by rocks, grass or any random object. Mike M hates feet!!!

@Wowithurts- Make sure you re-post your 667 so I can add you to the new club. :foryou:

 

@ebtorres- That's a great looking OA Joker cover! :headbang:

 

@valiant- Thanks for posting those illustrations. Some of those look almost photo-realistic.

Yep its the same one that sold on the 14th for less than half the current asking price.

 

Yes the seller on the 14th totally whiffed it and now this seller is obviously looking for the quick flip.

How was the $800 dollar sale that occurred the same day as a Stan SS auction for $1050 a "total whiff"? That language implies that you believe the current ask is more legit than two sales from a couple weeks ago that were within spitting distance of each other if you factor in SS costs.
