    Kyoung Seok Oh aka Alien1452, is a manga artist based in Seoul, Korea. Heavily involved in video games, he has previously worked on MMORPGs including Steal Fighter and Neo Steam. Kyoung Seok is currently working with game publishers Seed9.

    Mr Oh definitely has a nepotism towards female characters. Their personality vary from innocent to hard-nosed, but their physiques are always distinctly voluptuous. However, his renderings are varied, especially in his personal work, he does not seem to stick with one style or a set pallet. Mr Oh’s colouring definitely feels more experimental and expressive, and brings an extra layer of interest to his work.

    To see more of Kyoung Seok Oh’s illustrations you can check out his naver blog, DeviantArt page, and watch him work on Livestream.

    Jung Myung Lee aka Rupid 79 is Korean fantasy artist. You may recognise his work from his contributions to the hugely successful card battle game, Legend of the Cryptids. His art subsequently features in the Legend of Monsters Official Art Book (Japanese Language).

    Jung Myung Lee’s artwork is full of action and full of intricate details. They are multi-layered, rarely using less than three planes. Even when he strips away elements his illustrations are still more detailed than most.

    There was once a Rupid 79 page in each of the illustrative corners of the internet, but they all seem to have disappeared. I have managed to dig up a couple places that he is still using (for now at least). Check out his DrawCrowd page, and for those of you versed in Korean, he has a blog too.

    Victor Hugo Queiroz is a 3D artist from Brazil. Winner of multiple awards including CGTalk Choice Award, 3DTotal Excelence Award, and CGHub Gold Award. Hugo currently works for Techno Image, along side previously featured artist, Pedro Conti.

    Self-taught, Hugo has developed a comical manga-influenced style for his personal work. His character’s have large luring eyes, and rubbery skin which further exaggerate their playfulness. I will leave you with a very good quote I read on Hugo’s Facebook page:

    “Everyone has something to learn, everyone has something to teach”

    Comic artist José María del Barrio Ken Niimura (Ken, for short) is based in Tokyo, Japan but is originally from Spain. As well as illustrating numerous comics, he has taught comic and manga courses at the University of Salamanca. The work that Mr. Niimura is most famous for is his Eisner nominated limited series I Kill Giants, written by Joe Kelly. It is a stand out comic and a must read. Mr. Niimura’s style is loose and packed with energy, but somehow he always retains clear, thin lines. You can see more of his work on his blog.

    Shaun O’Neil AKA xshaunx

    Shaun O’Neil has that anime style that we have all seen many times before however, xshaunx is clearly not your “run of the mill” anime artist. He illustrates with great humor and his dynamic and intense characters really leap of the screen. He currently storyboards for Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra.

    Shaun O’Neil also has a few awesome self published sketchbooks available to purchase via Lulu. These sketchbooks are a collection of preliminary works, abandoned projects, work in progress and are well worth checking out.

    Under the nick xshaunx, he has a fantastic presence on deviantart
