Comic Book Art: Big Barda by Chris Samnee Comic Book Art | Comic Books 04 JUL 2012

Chris Samnee has done comic work for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Vertigo and Oni Press, and is particularly well known for his bold and striking black and white sketches, which quite literally litter the Internet (do a Google Image Search to see just how popular his moody black and white pieces are!).

Anyway, for today’s bit of beautiful comic art, we get New Gods’ Big Barda, being, well not her normal fearsome ferocious self, courtesy of Mr. Samnee.

She’ll probably beat him if she knew that’s how he was portraying her!

Comic Book Art: Wonder Woman by Francis Manapul Comic Book Art | Comic Books 02 JUL 2012

Filipino Canadian comic book artist Francis Manapul has put in some great work for Top Cow, Aspen, and Image (most notably Witchblade) and is currently signed on with DC busy handling the art chores for their rebooted Flash series.

He has an enjoyable art style to take in and is certainly capable of producing some stunningly beautiful and striking pieces of work, one such beauty being this depiction of Diana, Princess of the Amazons, and better known to us as Wonder Woman of course!

Pretty fierce.

Comic Book Art: Poison Ivy by Eric Basaldua Comic Book Art | Comic Books 29 MAR 2012

Brother of comic-inker Rick Basaldua, American comic book artist Eric Basaldua (also known as Ebas) has been in the business for a while now, and is particularly well known for his very sexy depictions of female characters, which is probably why he remains such a go to guy for Zenescope when it comes to churning out their infamous scantily clad babe covers. He did however start his career at Top Cow studios, working directly for founder Marc Silvestri, and has since gone on to build up quite a bibliography of both interior and cover work. You can catch more of him at his deviant art page here.

This particularly stunning piece of artwork featuring very muted color palette stars one of Batman’s perennially least dressed member of the Rogues Gallery, Ms. Poison Ivy, in all her natural grace and beauty.

Comic Book Art: Supergirl by Phil Noto Comic Book Art | Comic Books 07 DEC 2011

Comic book artist Phil Noto produces some stunning, clean line artwork on the comic book scene, and is well known for his cover work and beautiful illustrations, often featuring female characters with a very retro feel attached. At one stage a clean up artist for Disney, there is a surprising lack of information surrounding Phil Noto online, but if you are keen, you could always follow the man on Twitter or at his Tumblr blog.

This particularly stunning illustration stars everyone’s favourite Kryptonian lass, Supergirl.

Comic Book Art: Emma Frost (White Queen) by Aly Fell Comic Book Art | Comic Books 07 NOV 2011

Aly Fell (Alastair Fell to his mum) is a Manchester, England based illustrator and concept artist with well over 20 years of experience in both the animation and games industry, having previously worked as an animator at Cosgrove Hall Films. Currently a freelance illustrator and seemingly doing quite well for himself, Aly is best known for his female form art, more of which can be found on his blog here.

Today’s featured piece of comic art depicts a fantastically rendered Emma Frost, a.k.a The White Queen, a mutant from the X-Men franchise commanding powerful psychic abilities and who more often than not finds herself siding with the villains rather than the heroes, though with her you never quite know where she really stands!

Comic Book Art: Judge Dredd by Jock Comic Book Art | Comic Books 24 OCT 2011

Scottish comic book artist Jock (better known as Mark Simpson to his mum) is best known for his stunning, heavily styled and sketchy artwork over in 2000 AD, where he first got into the game with his Lenny Zero and Judge Dredd pieces.

Since then, he has broken into the American comic book market with his work on The Losers and Green Arrow: Year One, and went on for a successful run on Batman as well as Hellblazer. Also active in providing key work for film productions and promotional campaigns, you can follow the man on Twitter if you really want to know more, or perhaps check out his personal website.

Anyway, on to today’s piece of comic book art, featuring none other than the tough as nails and with the attitude to match dispenser of justice to Mega City One, Judge Dredd.

Comic Book Art: Black Cat by Eric Basaldua Comic Book Art | Comic Books 19 SEP 2011

Brother of comic-inker Rick Basaldua, American comic book artist Eric Basaldua (also known as Ebas) has been in the business for a while now, and is particularly well known for his very sexy depictions of female characters, which is probably why he remains such a go to guy for Zenescope when it comes to churning out their infamous scantily clad babe covers. He did however start his career at Top Cow studios, working directly for founder Marc Silvestri, and has since gone on to build up quite a bibliography of both interior and cover work. You can catch more of him at his deviant art page here.

Using a very muted color palette that seems to instantly elevate this piece of comic art to even loftier heights, this particular Ebas creation depicts Marvel’s premiere cat burglar, the Black Cat, in all of her skintight costumed glory!
