Artist Highlight: Yildirai Cinar (2012)
Yildirai Cinar is a Turkish artist, one who have incredible talent on his own, as you can see. I’ve chosen to display some of his best work, showcasing his strength as penciler and colorist of his own art, and his love for the DC Universe (He also does Marvel pieces, check his DV account to see some great renditions of Marvel heroes). The reason I chose his DC work was also to point out the main gripe I have with this guy. It’s not about his trace, sense of proportion or the use of his tools, this man make most of these masterpieces with copic markers, watercolors and Bristol paper and that alone amazes me.
But… the moment this guy hands over his art to an inker or colorist his work loses all deepness and detail, suffering a great deal (as you can see here). Is not that it looks bad, it’s looks average at best. Still this is just a very personal judgement. I love Yildirai’s work, and if past posts are proof, you guys love what this man does too. This artist has an attention to detail very few artists have nowadays, and every character he draws achieve his purpose: Batman looks menacing, Superman looks powerful, yet naive and so on. For that reason alone he gets all my praise and admiration.
Justice League by *JPRart
I’m a big fan of DC’s new 52, especially Justice League by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, its fantastic! …and I thought it would be fun to do an homage to the classic Jim Lee cover for X-men #1 featuring the members of the Justice League.
