Artist to Watch – Douglas Frey

Douglas Frey goes by the screen name of Darkwaterfrey over on the Deviant Art page and produces some of the most amazingly detailed pieces. If I remember correctly I first stumbled upon Doug’s work while surfing through other people’s friends pages over on Livejournal, where for a long time I maintained a blog and followed others.

I think what probably got my interest the most was his series of Katmandi pictures. I am a HUGE Jack Kirby fan and his comic Kamandi is to this day one of my all time favorite works by him. When I saw Doug doing these pictures with a new take on the character I just had to keep watching in the hope of seeing more. Doug has since gone on to complete a whole story based on Katmandi which he then did a small print run of (Which reminds me, I never got around to ordering a copy of that… Have to get on that!)

The way in which Doug does his coloring is wonderful. In a world over run with digital coloring it is nice to see someone still creating in a good old fashion real medium! Water color is something that I have been playing around with as of late, so I know how hard it is to use. Doug makes it look perfect. He creates a level of excellance in these pages that I dream of reaching!

Artist to Watch – Amy Mebberson

Another fine artist that I probably would have never been exposed to if not for her page on Deviant Art. Amy is a former Disney artist who is now working producing Pixar and Muppets comics for Boom Studios.

Like Katie Cook’s art Amy’s art has that playful fun feel to it that I think is missing in so much of the art these days.

In her picture Nightcrawler once again has that feel of a playful elf and not a troubled demon that all the stories seem to want to portray him as these days.

Since I have been picking up the Boom Disney/Pixar/Muppets books I am sure the little red and I are going to be getting to enjoy her art a lot more in the coming months!

The piece of hers that is my favorite right now has to be this quickie pic of Uhura (click image to be taken to a larger version.) It has that old Childrens book painting feel to it that I am so into right now! I am really hoping to see some more posts from her in this style in the future…

UPDATE : Since I started writing this I have found out via previews that she will be handling the art on Muppets : Peter Pan and Monsters Inc.
I am really excited about the Monsters Inc. book, Monsters Inc. and the Incredibles are my two favorite Pixar films!

Artist to Watch

Well, I dont really have an artist write up to post today, but there are a lot of cool artist to really watch on Ustream lately.

Les McClaine
Otis Frampton
J. Scott Campbell
Dani Jones

Otis and Dani keep pretty regular schedules but the other two are more up in the air as to when they broadcast. They are all worth the time to watch, it is always impressive to see other artist at work!
