He is honestly my favorite artist, his work on dark avengers and the now current secret avengers really catches the eye. What do you think of him? Also who is your favorite artist?

He's one dimensional,almost all the work i've seen from him has been dark even when it's not called for.Even the stuff he does in the day time has way too many shadows.

He's an amazing artist, but can suffer from bad inkers.

He's improved massively over the years.
Used to strictly a T&A artist.

 I thought his wife or someone from his family use to do the inking for his work? 
  This goes back to his Wonder Woman and/or Elektra days...

D.C has Ivan Reis. Marvel has Mike Deodato Jr. There are some instances where I enjoy his work, and others where it's utterly appalling. I think he needs to vary the amount of shading/dark outlining he does depending on the tone of the series. My other qualm with his work is the muscle definition he draws on each character. Most of his characters look like they have long muscular arms, when in fact, characters like Spider-Man are supposed to be lean and fit.

He's a great artist with a distinct style. It's amazing to see his progression from his Image days on Union.

His work jumps around a lot, but overall I like it.
