Artstream: Olivier Coipel!

Just so you guys know, Olivier Coipel is my current favorite comic artist. Just saying. This guy's stuff is AMAZING! He has masterful control over lighting techniques and inanimate objects. A background in animation shows through in his comic work in a wide range of physical expression...and the action? omfg.

You know, what i really like about Coipel's work is the ambition. He just tackles these huge concepts with everything he's got. I feel like I'm 10 years old and looking at Jim Lee stuff in the 90s again. Sometimes I even say out loud "Does this guy live next door to a thunder god he can constantly use as a reference!?"
