We have much different tastes in artists. 
Humberto Ramos, Skottie Young, Chris Bachalo, would end up on my least favorite artist list. But variety is the spice of life.

You have the most magnificent taste in comic book artists. I am trying to deduce whether you have missed any of my favorites, but so far I am failing. Ah, got one, Oliver Coipel. Still, milage will vary. Now I really wish you were in charge of what artists work on what Marvel comic books...

@SC: I like Coipel, but not with a burning passion.  But I have a limited exposure to his work (pretty much just Gen Hope). 
Well, now you mention it... I'd have Harvey Tolibao on Uncanny X-Men & rotate him with Carlos Pacheco.  Emma Rios could give a fresh new look to the New Mutants, introducing unique outfits & every day fashion.  Chris Bachalo would rule on X-Men legacy, with covers by Bill Sienkiewicz (who draws the best Legion ;), while Adam Pollina would give Monet & the rest of X-Factor a regular make-over & the best of New York's fashion.  Uncanny X-Force would be renamed Secret X-Men, with a string of 3 or 4-part mini series by Templesmith & David Mack.  I'd axe the new adjectiveles X-Men and have Skottie Young return to the New/Young X-Men who were never better than when drawn by him... and I'd keep Humberto Ramos for my own new team book consisting of cast off members from the X-Terminators, Fallen Angels and poor X-Slobs who don't gain enough time anywhere else because they're Misfits.

@Agent_Prince: I like Jim Lee, but he's not a favourite.

You have an extremely varied taste. Great list ^_^

I'm also super jealous of your Choi art.

@The Dark Huntress: It's strange to see just his pencils, but it's seriously graceful & refined!

@xerox-kitty: He's probably my absolutely favorite artist, but after seeing all the delicious Beardy Thor pictures that our lovely SC uploaded, I do have to admit that it's Sonia Oback's coloring that really makes his art breathtaking. His Thor stuff is great, but without Sonia it's just missing something.

Nice list; I agree with most and then not some and then some that are not on here. If you're curious, here's mine but it's a mix of writers and artists since a few jump around anyways. Just curious, what do you think about Amanda Conner?

Posted by xerox_kitty

@MrUnknown: I really really like her in interviews & what I've seen of her work I admire too. Unfortunately I don't own any comics drawn by her so I can't really add her to a 'Favourites' list :(

@xerox-kitty: You didn't even get Girl Comics? I picked that as my favorite cover by her ;p
Posted by xerox_kitty

@MrUnknown: Yeah, I got that. I didn't even realise she was in it... Even so, a short story in an anthology doesn't qualify someone to enter my favourite all time list.

Posted by MrUnknown
@xerox-kitty: Not sure she worked on a story in there but I know she did the cover for #1. She did a short story in Wonder Woman 600, worked on first 12 issues of PG current volume and some Vampirella. That's all I know of! XD
But, I get what you mean by quality. I didn't call my list the "Hall of Fame" for nothing you know? I really love that you go in depth about why you like a particular artist and such. I love those kinds of lists. It feels like you put your heart into the list (I know that sounded corny XD) but yeah otherwise without words a list feels empty!

Nice list ^_^

@Aiden Cross: Thank you!! :)

Bachalo and Pacheco are personal favorites of mine as well! x]

I agree with you about Ramos, his style is so unique and bold. I've always enjoyed styles that are edgy and with Delgado his works always looks amazing. Cant wait for his work in Spider island.

Why is Bachalo on this list?
