Illustrator Reacts to Requested Comic Book Artists


This looks like a sculpture. Okay, now I
know I got to move on from him, there is… Oh God…
That hair was such a brilliant design choice. Oh God, why?! In the time I’ve been
doing ‘Illustrator Reacts,’ I’ve gotten hundreds upon hundreds of requests for
different artists to talk about and go over their work and I feel bad that I
can only cover so many. And sometimes I’ll cover an artist that hasn’t even
been requested just because I have something that I can actually talk about
for them specifically. But for this episode I’m just gonna go over people
that have been pretty widely requested in the comment sections of the past
videos. Also, yes, I finally talked about Junji Ito in this episode, but
I’m saving them to the end ‘cuz his art pretty freaky looking and some people
might want to switch off before that. I’ll give up warning when I’m about to
talk about his work. But, let’s go over some more normal art first. This looks
like a sculpture. Like, looking at it from a distance I might have thought it was… I
don’t know but not hand drawn this is incredible. The depth to everything, the
pattern on Killer Croc, how it becomes less detailed as it goes into the
lighting because it would be more washed out. And then in the spot in between
where it would be kind of half in shadow half not is where it’s the most detailed,
and the eyes… This is almost kind of like Alex Ross’s art except he’s doing it all
with just black and white. And I love while everything is so realistic and
beautiful, then Batman’s cape is very angular and sharp. And even, I love the
detailing on the bottom side of Robin’s boot. Okay, maybe I’ll look at one more
piece of Lee Bermejo’s work. I love how he’s left the sky just a blank white to
give us a little bit of breathing room and make Batman’s head and Catwoman’s
head really stand out. And then the building in the bottom here underneath
the Batman starts the framing for all this other stuff that’s going on in the
image. But, really the thing that gets me about this is how it’s so detailed and
it’s not done with cross-hatching like most comic artists
will do. It’s just done with different levels of solid black and white. Now I
flipped through Toriyama’s work a few times considering talking about him for
an episode and I was surprised that it was a lot more simple than I was expecting
it to be. I don’t mean that in a bad way I really like the artwork but the things
that stand out to me most from his work, and specifically his character design, is
with Goku… that hair was such a brilliant design choice because for character
design you’re generally supposed to try and make something that looks good as a
silhouette. If you black out this image you can still tell that it’s Goku. And I
think that hair was actually inspired by Astro Boy, not 100% sure on that but you
can see that Goku’s hair kind of looks like a more dramatic version of Astro
Boy’s hair. And something else I often notice when looking at Toriyama’s work
or just any Dragon ball art, whether it’s from the anime or whatever, is what I
refer to as the Dragon Ball bicep. See, on the back side of your arm, even on a
really muscular bodybuilder type person there won’t often be a defining line on
the bicep there. There’s the bicep, the brachialis, and the tricep, and they can
kind of all blend together even on a really, really fit person. Whereas on the
other side of the arm even when a person isn’t super muscular there’s a line here
kind of defining the separation from the bicep and the other muscles more. But
Dragon Ball characters tend to have that line on both sides of the arm. Which
isn’t particularly realistic, but is a good thing to show people that if you
come up with a version of anatomy that works for your art people can end up
loving it and it can become very iconic. If you blocked off the rest of Goku and
just showed me his arm in this image I would still be able to tell that this is
Dragon Ball artwork. This kind of art isn’t even my usual go-to sort of style,
but Esad Ribic’s painting is just so beautiful. And I love how he’s distanced
the sort of airships in the background one is closer to us but is all washed
red like the clouds and then the next one’s even farther back and is
almost just a silhouette but has little flecks of detail in it.
I love Thor’s swing here and this whole style reminds me a little bit of Das
Pastoras’ rendering style, who I talked about in the second episode except Esad Ribic’s art feels more fitting to mainstream superhero comics because of
the way he does his character shapes and Anatomy. But I also love in this image
how there’s sort of a red swoop that takes us down to Thor and then where
Thor is everything around him is kind of a bluish green colour and then his cape
is red his skin is done a little bit red so he really pops out. And he’s the last
bit of red as your eye flows down through the image to him so it makes him
really stand out and… oh, I didn’t even notice these people in the background
that are silhouetted as well. That’s kind of cool. I also love his Fantastic Four
cover that he did for Fantastic Four number one recently. I don’t really have
anything interesting to say about it, I just think it’s a really great cover, so
put it up here now. There’s so much iconic stuff about David Finch’s art.
He’s the kind of artist that I look at his work and I instantly know it’s him.
And, he’s one of the few artists that I actually prefer his work when it’s not
colored because I think he just does such a great job with his cross hatching.
He has this specific kind of cross hatching that I’ve seen other artists
replicate since, but I’d never seen someone do cross hatching like him until
he did it. Although, I should point out that well David Finch does do this cross
hatching in his penciling, the finalized inking that you’re seeing here was done
by Joe Weems over the pencils by David Finch. And one of the things that also
really stands out in his work is how intricately he’ll do forearm muscles.
Forearms have a lot more small specific muscles than most other parts of the
body and a lot of the time they’re just hidden on normal people, but obviously on
superheroes and super shredded people in real life you can see them a lot more
clearly. And he does a really impressive job rendering those out on pretty much
all his characters, unless they’re wearing gauntlets or something. I think
personally the reason I’m not normally more drawn to his artwork, and this is
purely personal preference, not a comment on the quality, is just how
small he draws eyes. Because… as someone who has an animation background and who
likes cartoony art, I like bigger eyes and bigger expressions, but again,
personal preference, his art is really fantastic. If you want to learn to draw
like him, he’s got a course up on this site called I think it’s ‘Gnomon
Workshops’ I don’t know if I’m pronouncing that right, but I’ll put a
link in the description ‘cuz he does a very elaborate course on how to draw the
way he draws Anatomy. It’s just such a fun image. All of Gabriel Picolo’s work has
so much life and personality to it and this isn’t actually an image he did for
a comic, he does a lot of really great Teen Titans fan art kind of stuff and
it’s all super gorgeous and his characters are all really simple and he
makes it look so easy. Like you look at this and you might even
think ‘oh hey I could probably do that,’ but it’s so deceptively difficult to do
characters this simple this well with this much confidence. And another thing
that I really like about it is how the lighting is done purely in the colors. If
you took all the color out of this and just had it in the inks, you wouldn’t be
able to tell that that streak of lighting is coming in from outside it
could have been that the lighting was coming from the ceiling or something
like that. If he was working with a colorist, he would either have to tell
them that that’s what he wants the lighting to be doing or more likely he’d
have to imply it with a bit of line work or even some thicker line work to show
this is what the lighting is doing in this scene, make sure you’re doing that
with the colors. But because he’s doing all of the art in this himself, he just knows
what he wants to do and doesn’t have to imply it in the inking and can do the
lighting purely in the coloring stage. Oh wow Tsutomu Nihei, I hadn’t heard
of before, but these are all really nice. This image here jumps out the most to me
because… of a few things. One is just how the character really stands out because of
what a high point of contrast they are. She’s all white against the almost
totally blackness of space but then what also really impresses me
about it is how he’s done the detailing on this pipe thing. He’s done such an
incredible job with the consistency of this curved pattern. I kind of want to
guess that he did this with a computer program or plugin or something but if he
genuinely just did that by hand that is mind-blowing. And something else I’m
noticing looking through the other images that are popping up for his work
is he really likes making a character feel really small. Like there’s a bunch
of shots, whether it’s just a person in an environment that is crumbling or
there’s this one where this silhouette of a person is facing down
this giant creature and your eye is really drawn to the person because, again,
like in that first image, they’re the highest point of contrast and then
there’s just this huge freaky beast that… he’s done a good job making it feel
bigger and a bit more in the distance by having this smoky cloud in the
environment separating the the main character from the background creature.
Yeah a lot of these images the people just feel so small in comparison
to the big epic stuff going on around them. Andrew Wildman isn’t actually an
artist I’d heard of before, but I… looking at some of these images they’re just so,
so great. It’s all Transformers art that I’m looking at, which, a lot of people
have been asking me to look at more Transformers work and I’m actually
surprised that I haven’t yet because I love these so much. It’s so much my kind
of thing not just because Transformers is also an animated series and my
background is in animation I really love drawing characters with blocky bigger
forearms and feet and hands and fists and Transformers just inherent
look like that. And I love how in these drawings… these specifically, ones that he
hasn’t done for a comic, ones that he’s done as fan art for… presumably for
conventions or something like that, I like how the lines aren’t all finished a
lot of them are really just stroked in quickly to imply that there’s some
lining or a bevel or something like that. Something that I personally did a lot,
and still kind of sometimes do, is feel the need to do a very sharp finished
clean line to make something look good, when really you can make just as
fantastic artwork by having more smooth fluid lines that don’t necessarily all
complete and go exactly where they’re supposed to go. You can do lines a little
bit rougher and still have them look really fantastic. This to me and any
drawing of Spider-man done by Mark Bagley is just the iconic Spider-man
artwork. I know I’ve talked a bunch about how I really loved Humberto Ramos’ art,
specifically when he’s drawing Spider-man, but Mark Bagley… just the
poses he draws Spider-man in, the big eyes, the way he draws the hands, and he
makes Spider-man thin muscular, not too bulky, like he actually looks like an
acrobat… Everything about it is so perfect iconic Spider-man to me. And, to
be fair, I’m very very biased on this one because Ultimate Spider-man, which Mark
Bagley did the art for and Brian Michael Bendis did the writing for, for something
like 18 volumes, that was the longest-running writer/artist team-up in
the history of comics… I don’t know if that’s still the case, it was when it
finished, but that’s the series that I read as a kid that got me into comic
books. So again very, very biased, but just his pose work is all great. And right
now, I haven’t read it yet, he’s working on a comic called ‘Spider-man Life Story,’
which is going through Spider-man’s life as if time moved normally and he aged
normally. You know how in comics there’s kind of a floating timeline? On this
Spider-man is actually a teenager in the 60s and ages normally as time goes on. I
haven’t read it yet but apparently it’s good and Mark Bagley’s back doing the
art for spider-man so I’m super excited to read that. I hope I don’t get flagged
through the bloody spurt here, but I love this drawing so much Skottie Young’s art
is all… he’s another artist who, his work is all super lively and fun it’s very
cartoony. He’s done work for Marvel as well, even when he was doing that he was
working pretty cartoony, though a little bit more normal comic booky, but his
art is just so cool and lively and expressive and this one specifically I
really love because of how all these very bluish purplish creatures are
framing our main character there. I haven’t actually read ‘I Hate Fairyland’
but I’ve been wanting to get to it because his art is just so great. And all
the expressions on these weird creatures, their teeth are all weird, oh and then
this little bug guy with a gun shooting at one of the creatures, he looks so
disinterested in what’s going on. But mainly I just love how they’re all
framing this main character. It’s really great. Okay, fair warning I’m about to
move on to Junji Ito. His art is famously very freaky looking, specifically want to
warn anyone with trypophobia or arachnophobia, there’s some stuff that
might set you off, but his art is pretty fascinating so might be worth pushing
through anyway. Okay let’s get right into it.
Oh… why are you all making me- look, Junji Ito is an incredible artist, I’m not
gonna deny that, but his work is so gross-looking a lot of the time. Not
gross looking in a bad art way, just in a… you know, it’s freaky looking and this- oh
my gosh I don’t even have trypophobia and this is really grossing me out
which, if you don’t know trypophobia is a fear of small repeating holes, which
sounds like a very specific thing but apparently it’s more widespread than
you’d expect- oh and if you had that and you looked at this I just imagined you
would faint. It’s so uncomfortable and one thing I do like in this, even though
I have no idea what the context is for this image, I can tell that this is a
person looking through a window because we’ve got the sort of streaks going in
front of the character like streaks you might see from
a window. And there’s the curtain kind of pouring into the corner of the screen a
little bit that gives some good context for the image which, if this is from a
manga I guess you wouldn’t necessarily need it because you’re reading the story,
but it does help us someone looking at this image not knowing what the story is.
And I assume the point of this was to make me uncomfortable and… good job
you’ve done it Mr. Ito. Okay, okay, people will probably be upset if I don’t talk
about more of his work so let’s look at a few more. Oh God.
why? I should say something about the art itself not just how uncomfortable I am. I
guess… I talk a lot about how different artists use things to draw your eye
through the image and I guess this trail of scalps is doing that pretty well. Ughh.
I was already a dog person, but now I’m definitely more of one. It’s so gross,
but I obviously have to give a major props for the fact that he’s not just
making people really uncomfortable with his art by doing gory, graphic images,
which he does do sometimes, but he’s really good at making you uncomfortable
by just making creatively twisted artwork and pulling on fears that a lot
of people already have like trypophobia and arachnophobia. So, you know,
he’s just not going for the low-hanging fruit. He’s being horrifying in a really
creative way. Oh look he did some Pokemon art. That’s, you know, still creepy
but significantly less so. Okay, now I- now I gotta move on from him there’s-
oh God yuch- YUCH! Okay. And last one for today
we’ve got Jason Fabok. He is really awesome… and I don’t really have much
else to say, I’m really sorry he’s been requested by a bunch people and a few
times for episodes of this show I’ve looked at tons of his work trying to
come up with something to say. And I just have nothing interesting to talk about
when looking at his art. I just really like him think he’s a really solid
artist. Actually wait wait wait, while I was editing this
video and I was pulling up a bunch of images of Jason Fabok’s, I found this piece that he
did for Justice League vs Suicide Squad and I really like this one. He’s done a
fantastic job organizing so many fights in just one image and we’ve got a nice
focused through line going from Deadshot’s arm blasting up to Batman as our
main focus. But then all of the other fights are just so well placed either
hidden in gaps in people’s bodies and behind people’s arms. And I also like how
he’s chosen who’s fighting who, I mean that might have been decided in the
script… actually for a shot like this it might not have been, it depends, I haven’t
read the issue. But I like that Superman’s fighting a magic-user ‘cuz
magic is good against Superman so that could actually work.
Aquaman fighting Killer Croc, they’ve both got scales and are aquatic focused…
although I don’t really know about this fight here. Seems like one flick from
Wonder Woman and that fights over. But yeah, the planning it must have taken
to get all of these fights to appear clearly in one image is really
impressive. But all right everybody, that’s all for this episode. Let me know
what you thought of this video versus some of the others, this one was a little
bit faster and looser and I gave slightly more genuine ‘reactions’ to the
artwork. In the past couple episodes I’ve been doing a lot more research into the
people before talking about them so it’s not really a ‘reaction’ but that also
means I can go a little bit more in depth in their process and stuff so I’m
curious what people think about this video versus the last couple. But yeah be
sure to check out some of my other videos, I put out two videos a week on
Mondays and Saturdays and then sometimes more. But be sure to go check out some of
those, got lots of art videos weird mashups lots of superhero stuff some
animations working on an animation now, don’t know when it’ll come out but
eventually. And, of course if you’ve got more artists to request please put them
in the comment section. There’s been many cool people that I hadn’t heard of that I’ve
checked out now. Finding a lot of artists that I really like. But okay everybody,
I’m Christian Pearson this has been PopCross Studios, home of the nerdiest art
videos on YouTube and I will see you all on the next one. Goodbye everybody!

    Will it work ?????

  2. Peppydogdog says:

    you should look at Hiroya Oku’s work, it’s really detailed and generally high quality. I really like how he frames shots and also how he draws people. Ah, it’s also pretty gory.

  3. Exilious says:

    Was kinda hoping one of the ito images you’d pull up is the pus faced dude dripping pus on his sister, cause that image was my first viewing of a junji ito artwork and it had me hooked since then cause of how gross it is

  4. NikColyKal Buns says:

    Has anybody suggested Haruko Ichikawa?

  5. Bonjour! Thy Monkey Biscuits Are Done, Monsieur! says:

    I'd love to hear your opinion on Shinichi Sakamoto's art.

    I would love to see you look at Tsukushi Akihito’s work for Made in Abyss. Some of the detail in his scenery and creature design is amazing

  9. Juice Goose says:

    AAAAAAh junji ito!

  10. skater1964 says:


  11. Annas Maulana Bagaskara says:

    Please react to Daniel Warren Johnson and Ishida Sui!

  12. Magos Iso says:

    You should talk about Ken Ishikawa, he was one of the great old masters of manga and I think it'd be interesting to compare his style in the 70s with works like the original Getter Robo to the stuff he made in the 80s and 90s like Kyomu Senki and Getter Robo Go.

    Of course you can't really talk about Ken Ishikawa without first talking about his mentor, Go Nagai. His series like Devilman, Mazinger Z and Cutey Honey still shape all of anime and manga to this day. Also much less well known but he did a really neat manga adaption of Dante's Divine Comedy.

  13. Potatus Potato says:


  14. Hero Wasp says:

    react to Kohei Horikoshi!

  15. Khalfan AlShamsi says:

    Do horikoshi, the mangaka for my hero academia

  16. Blastican says:

    Still you should check out Jean Giraud (Moebius)… 😀

  17. Sammythesleebs DORK FACE!!!!!! says:

    kentaro miuras artwork?????!!!!!!!

  18. fix24311 says:

    the thing i hate about Junji Ito, his protagonist will often always loose in their own story. they cannot run or fix the problem. but i still would like to read his manga

  19. Totally not Zokix11_MC says:

    You should definitely look at the artist who drew the Goblin Slayer Side Story: Year One manga. Reading that manga, I was just so amazed by how beautiful and detailed it looked. There are SO MANY badass shots in that manga and he does such a great job making Goblin Slayer look and feel epic.

    You probably won't read this, but here's hoping you somehow see this and decide to look at it.

  20. vizsla826 says:

    Bryan hitch
    James stokoe
    Howard chaykin (do his older stuff like American Flagg he really fell off later on)
    DC Era Jack Kirby
    Tim Sale
    Brian Bolland

  21. MAGAMan. Z er0 says:

    in a version of harley quinn she got a drug from psion ivy that enhanced her strenght and gave her super durability… so she is super strong but not as wonder woman (i am talking about the last art)

  22. SpaceWitch says:

    Came for Junji Ito, stayed for Tsutomu Nihei

  23. Evelyn Silvertant says:

    Your response to Junji Ito’s art seems to be indicative of trypophobia. I bet there are different degrees of trypophobia, but I am lacking a response of aversion like you do. Unless you are exaggerating your response, you seem to have mild trypophobia.

  24. Airen Song says:

    have you considered doing a reaction to Bill Sienkiewicz? hes worked in both the marvel and dc universes, and his style is really unique! Thank you for bringing n awesome show like this to life! Love your work!

  25. Ralf Go says:

    You can't draw like that 🙂

  26. xavier destremau says:

    ZHC's art looks like David finch's

  27. xavier destremau says:

    Do James Raiz!!!!!!

  28. cullen bloodstone says:

    Esad Ribic has a serious problem with "o" faces though.

  29. Winston Overbeck says:

    Jack the KING Kirby co creator of Captain America, The Fantastic 4, The Avengers, Thor, Ironman, Galactus,
    The Silver Surfer, SGT. Fury And His Howling Commandos, The Incredible Hulk, And so many others for MARVEL comics it’s insane. Not to mention over at DC COMICS He created The New Gods, Darkseid, Etrigan the Demon , And the newsboy legion among others.

  30. Matthew Beard says:

    Hey! I love when you focus on different artists. I'm curious what you think of Mike del Mundo, especially his recent Thor work. Just a suggestion.

  31. Steven Rollberg says:

    I take a shot every time you mention your “background in illustration“ and I am absolutely tanked mate. Also if that art creeps you out that much, I have to assume you sleep with a nightlight while your uncle spoons you back to sleep. Get bent

  32. Prinny Dood says:

    Please look at Yoshitaka Amano, he is my favorite artist and very unique!

  33. Drakcheslav says:

    I don't know if you've reacted to. Bu my suggestion is Katsuhiro Otomo. Not just the Akira series, but his artwork in general.

  34. terebibae says:

    Toriyama’s characters may seem simple but in a way they are not. Similar to Otomo, he uses some common elements in each of the characters, sort of shortcuts. Both artists also do very detailed machinery.

  35. FriezaDBZKing69 says:

    Toriyama is one of the few mangaka that can successfully draw fight scenes that look animated without actually being animated. You can follow them as he adds explosive design choices in the sense that it doesn't need an anime to follow. Most mangaka draw things that don't feel like it needed being in a manga. If that makes sense.

  36. FriezaDBZKing69 says:

    Kentaro Miura. You would absolutely love his artwork as a mangaka.

  37. Skull Grunt Ruffe says:

    Do Eiichiro Oda! He is easily my favorite manga artist

    He pumps out amazing looking chapters weekly. Dude is a machine

  38. Guarana Taravana says:

    Can you do Kentaro Miura (Berserk)?

  39. Mark Mueller says:

    Have people been requesting Dave Lapham, who writes and draws Stray Bullets? It is a very different style of art from what you normally feature, but I would be interested in seeing your thoughts on it! I've been following Stray Bullets for decades–he took a lengthy hiatus from the title, but he has recently picked it up again, and his mastery over his style has increased over time.

  40. henry crfawford says:

    Kohei Horikoshi the artist and writer for my hero academia

  41. SIES_ssbm says:

    Do Kentaro Miura, the artist of Berserk. Also once you're done him check out Vagabond, forget the artist's name.

  42. Mia Sumner says:

    You should look at Jill Thompson’s work next! From her scary godmother comics to some Wonder Woman things she’s done she has a really unique inking style and watercolor style

  43. Juan Aguirrezabala says:

    You really should check Hirohiko Araki's art, in my opinion is one of the most original styles on manga

  44. Vivid Vortex says:

    This is kind of late, and I don't know if you've reviewed his art already but Stephan Segovia has some freakin' awesome art!

  45. giovannagio says:

    you should look at Hirohiko Araki

  46. Joshua Georges says:

    1:17 are you irish

  47. Sugar Dahmer says:


  48. Final Boss Veigar says:

    So, is anyone here gonna recommend him Baki's artist?

  50. DeathbyPixels says:

    Jamie Hewlett? Maybe not Tank Girl (YouTube wouldn’t be happy), but he does a lot of other art besides Gorillaz. He made a piece for Extinction Rebellion that was projected onto a building at one of their protests.

  51. Subcontinental Bugman says:

    Pls do Kouta Hirano

  52. Im not the best, I’m the better says:

    Please please please react to hirohiko arakis art

  53. Autobot Heatwave says:

    Look at Alex Milnes work, awesome guy! He drew for the transformers series "more that meets the eye" and "the lost light" which he makes them have not as blocky proportions but blocky at the same time, you love them, and the series themselfs is very emotional, great reads

  54. Riipley says:

    Talk about Hiroyuki imaishi

  65. Sylvian Juraska says:

    Sam Keith and Trad Moore

  66. SuperSnoodle Boi says:

    Hirohiko Araki would be a fun artist to look at, because hes a manga artist that had his work featured in the Louvre.

  67. DerpRaptor says:

    I love Skottie Young! His characters are so cute, yet have the same personality as their grown-up counterparts

    I find it funny that this was on my recommendations, because I'm currently doing a project that is solely inspired by Junji Ito's work

  69. Tate Robinson says:

    You should look at Gabriel Ba’s art

  70. Herpy Depth says:

    Kind of amazed you didn’t go into how awesome Toriyama’s ability to convey motion is

  71. Allen Drake says:

    Definitely agree with your comments about Fabok's skill with compositing splash pages featuring a large number of characters, in a way that feels cohesive. There's a lot of comic artists skilled with portraying a "big" moment, with the energy just exploding off the page, but Fabok is someone I've come to really admire specifically on that front. Was first introduced to his work through the Justice League event "Darkseid War", and definitely recommend checking out some of the artwork he did for it!

  72. Infernal Baka says:

    Since you did Toryiama in this video can you also do his Dragon quest artwork

  73. Yo it's Steve says:

    Make sure to give a warning if this comes up in the next video,
    but i'd like you to show some art from Kentaro Miura.

  74. XDTheLaughingManXD says:

    PLease god, do jeff dekal! he's like an up and coming god in the industry!

  75. Souspre says:

    You should check Akira Toriyama's beautiful cover artwork when he is at his best.
    That Goku illustration is kinda weak.

  76. Cristian Davis says:

    15:53 Its the human HEADipede

  77. Donald Dude says:

    React to old comic art like the one drawn by Steve Ditko, Jack kirby, John Buscema etc

  78. gyver petilo says:

    Alex Maleev please. 🙂

  79. JViktor says:

    I should react to Hirohiko Araki's art, everything he did from the late 80s up until now looks great and unique.

  80. Fab Pen says:

    I would recommend Q Hayashida's works! She's an amazing and particular artist

  81. Leo Culleny says:

    Please do Sam Kieth!!!

  82. Avaruusmurkku says:

    You really need to take an extended look at Kentaro Miura's Berserk artwork. It's out of this world and is going to need a longer segment devoted to it to give it justice.

  83. Bronnen says:

    can you look at Atsushi Okubo

  84. pippo baudo says:

    Please look at the art from vagabond
    Tokyo ghoul
    Batman year one
    Leinil yu

  85. augusto penas palmeira says:

    can you review ariel olivetti, bernie wrightson and simon bisley?

  86. communist rice says:

    14:40 cheese boi

  87. gas 376 says:

    You might not see this but, something I love to look at is manga artist Sakamoto Shinichi’s art. Especially for Innocent Rogue. Well, I hope you do see this, if you haven’t already shown his work.

  88. William Robinson says:

    Do Brett Booth

  89. Lydia Hanger says:

    Am I the only one who isn't scared of Junji Ito's artwork? I'm not saying it's not a masterpiece but just… not scary. Or maybe I think like that because probably I have no fobia he portraited in his arts…
    But I think I need to check out this name: 8:24 * O *

  91. anthony daoust says:

    you should do Greg capullo

  92. Frog King says:

    I really recommend checking out art from Boichi! He's done amazing work on his own manga and he draws the art for Dr. Stone, which has an anime adaptation currently airing!

  93. The.essential. wolf says:

    Kentaro miura next please, incredible mangaka and drawing

  94. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    Yeah it looked liked Wonder Woman was about to cut Harley Quinn in half in that last piece, but it looks awesome.

  95. Daniel LaDue says:

    I really love the fact that you can enjoy work that is a bit different than your own. Artists are notoriously mean spirited about other people's work… I don't even want to get started on tattoo artist's work, because they are complete a-holes about it…. The point is what I call "having the eye" An artist either has the eye or they don't.

  96. Rez-Nate says:

    Next time you do one of these videos could you please react to Hirohiko Araki's work from the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure series?

  97. Patricio Coilla says:

    You have to talk about Oh! Great (Ito Ogure) art

  98. natty is weird says:


  99. The_One&Only says:

    Takehiko Inuoe
    Ryochi Ikegami

    Fiona Staples
