Here is this week's contribution. Another Buscema piece and perhaps my all-time favorite.

A page from Mikros by Jean-Yves Mitton which should bring fond memories to a lot of the french members of this forum:

Facing some kind of existencial crisis, I recently went back to the stuff I built myself upon in my youth ( including a lot of our host's work). Re-reading Mikros, I've been amazed by this drawing all over again.

JB that is too funny! 

When I see the drawings from the masters (which you are clearly one) it inspires me to pick up the pencil and draw, while at the same time, I see how incredibly skilled they are and it ALSO makes me want to break my pencil and never draw again.

I love that Bernie chose to tackle such a formidable project and that he put so much effort into each of these illustrations. It has to be one of the most impressive feats ever produced by a comic book artist.

That John Buscema Conan illustration is beautiful. You can really tell how much more he loved drawing Conan stuff as opposed to, say, Avengers, which isn't to say his Avengers stuff is bad, it's great too. The Stern/Buscema/Palmer Avengers run is probably my favorite. The man was a consummate professional. But, man, when he does a Conan piece like this is when his art really shines..

Big Frazetta fan here. I think I'll post an image a week from  one of his books I have.

Doug - Excellent Frazetta piece. First time I've seen that one. 

Shane - I agree with you 100%. Buscema could draw anything, but he was made to draw fantasy.

Since it's the third week on my calendar, I'll post another.

I've only been aware of Petar Meseldzija for a couple years. I love his line work, building up to tones. I guess this qualifies as cross hatching, but the way Petar does it feels more organic than some of the masterful cross hatching art I've seen before.
