Several of my favorite artists online...

The following list is ordered alphabetically. My "personal top 3" artists are Frazetta, Royo,and Brom, Althhough this is only about modern art, I should add that I also like the Preraphaelites and the works of Doré, Durer, Rackham, and Bosch.

I originally intended to list only sites of individual artists, but the following companies' sites are a must-see as well. A pity they don't list the names of the great talents they have among their ranks (which is usually why I normally don't like listing companies in my gallery links... too faceless):

  • Glyphx—loved the work they did for thorougly enjoyable games Drakan and Advent Rising. Still, I would prefer knowing he name of the actual artists involved. (Update 4/29/09: the site's gone, which is a pity. Well, I'll miss them, together with Troika, Black Isle Studios, Looking Glass Studios, etc.).

  • Massive Black—sponsors of ConceptArt.org, and yet another reason I bang my head on the wall for getting a graduate degree in English instead of design.

 

NoSpec The NO!SPEC campaign: to serves as a vehicle to unite those who support the notion that spec work devalues the potential of design and ultimately does a disservice to the client. Their mission: To educate the public about speculative, or 'spec' work. Highly recommended read.

 

Arvixe Web HostingI spent a few sleepless nights searching for a good and, well, inexpensive hosting solution since my wallet is rather thin these days. From the top 5 in my final list, I decided to try Arvixe, and I'm glad I did. The quality of the resources and services is as good or better than many other (and MORE costly) Web hosts. Don't just take my word for it, visit their site, and check out the excellent reviews at FindMyHosting and HostSearch.
