    Any artist hated by professional critics.

    New addtions caused by reading your lists.

    Durer
    Norman Rockwell

    Georgia O'Keefe
    Originally out because she was a compulsory artist in my granddaughter's Art lesson. I really got to hate big flowers!
    In again, for this reason. "I painted flowers because, unlike models, they didn't move and you didn't have to pay them!"

    John Myatt, who lives near by.
    Went to prison for selling fake Monet's and Picasso's to most major art galleries and other experts. Not enough in itself to make my list, but he used House paint and KY-Jelly as a medium! Hollywood Bio-pic starts shooting soon.

    Tom Keating
    Introduced the, shove the finished canvas in the Microwave, ageing process.


    Maxfield Parrish
    from 14/05/06 or 05/14/06 depending on your country!
    Luck is infatuated with the efficient.

    my list is tiny. i wonder if anyone will even know some of them.

    Da Vinci (of course)
    Michael Pangrazio
    Ryan Church
    Ralph MacQuarrie (probably the first art i ever noticed as "art")
    Chris Ayers (a close friend who I'm trying to get into ArtRage!)
    Thomas Kincaid
    Rien Poortvliet (check out his book about 1566!)


    thats all i can think of for now, except to say that Waheed may be edging his way onto my list!

    for some reason, i'm not too into some of the "masters", i.e. Picasso, Michaelangelo, Matisse, Monet, etc. I never get the same feeling looking at their pictures as i do the people i've listed. especially Picasso.
    if it's not fun, what's the point?

    I have a wide variety of different styles of artists that I just love - some being rather unconventional as artists. Most of these I truly appreciate and know that I could never attent their levels in painting, however, by studying their works I make my own works better:

    Claude Monet
    Vincent Van Gogh
    Auguste Renoir

    Georgia O'Keiffe

    Old Master Dutch Still-life Painters (no one in particular - I just love that style, subjects, and era of paintings)

    John Singer Sargent

    The pre-Raphaelites

    William Acheff
    RC Gorman

    Laurel Burch
    Ralph McQuarrie

    I've got Gita's back on this one. The work I've seen done in these forums has really knocked my socks off. My feet have been cold ever since. :roll:

    Anywhoo,
    Apart from the luminaries mentioned above (there's really no arguing with the masters), I have to give props to my personal heroes, many of whom aren't painters per se, but artists all the same:

    Bill Waterston (Calvin and Hobbes)
    Terry Gilliam (Monty Python, etc.)
    Frank Lloyd Wright (Architecht (I am from Wisconsin, after all))
    Chuck Jones (Loony Tunes)
    Norman Rockwell
    Shane Giles (Illustrator - Ren and Stimpy/others)
    The Rage Team ( :wink: )

    I could keep going, but you get the idea. I like all things highly stylized and animated.
    People who speak in absolutes are always wrong.

    [insert Therm0s first two paragraphs here]

    Bill Waterston. I have a Calvin and Hobbes poster even though he dont do merch :P

    The looney tunes team; all that eye buldging, lim stretching that is physically impossible.

    M. Escher. Keep meaning to get a portfolio of his stuff.

    H. R. Giger. Mental but brilliant. Alien/Aliens are up in my top films list.

    The Tron guys. All that neon effect was cool. Its disappointing they werent given any awards for it.

    So many Amiga graphics designers too many to mention but games wise, graphics such as Superfrog, Flood, Rick Dangerous 2, Alien Breed et al, and the Sensible like men style graphics.

    I've forgot the guys name now but he's the guy who did the Terry Pratchett covers.

    Oh yeah, and MattRage for the great ergonomic and aethstetic ArtRage 2 interface 8)
