    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 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
