Realism in Comics & Art

    I was going to an art school and I transferred out to find out that my credits don't transfer and I pretty much have to start over.
    To develop my hand skills and to learn more about painting where should I go Alex?

    Alex, I've been HUGE fan of you work ever since "MARVELS". Both myself, and brother, stumbled upon the cover to "Hero" magazine one day, back in the early 90s. I recall being stunned to see this life-like painting of Spider-Man right from the cover of the classic "Amazing Fantasy"#15. Up to this point I had always sought realistic images of superheroes. I had long since been a fan of comic painters such as Bob Larkin & Joe Jusko. (*and still am*) But that day, when I was introduced to that incredible painting upon the cover of (*the long since defunct*) "Hero" magazine, I was totally hooked. After purchasing it, I actually took the magazine to a nearby "KINKO", and had it copied to a 11X14, which I still have framed, hanging on my wall. Since then I've been enthusiastic about all of your superhero projects. And over the years, you only seem to excel in your work. Someone once asked me who the greatest comic book artist who ever lived was. I told them that while Jack Kirby is the king of comics, "Alex Ross" is certainly the Michelangelo of comics! Anyway, copies of your amazing work grace my home throughout. And I hope you read this simply because I wanted to say "thank-you" for some great memories. ('nuff said)

    All of the Andrew Loomis I've read. You added how Loomis was a huge influence on your life. Loomis method are amazing. He like the patron saint of comic artists. "Fun with pencil" is one if not the best how to draw books I ever read and his order books are just wow.

    Realism is my stylistic preference in comic art. Ross is the master, but there are also so many other greats these's a fantastic time to collect for collectors with similar tastes to my own. I cannot count the number of books I've bought for the covers alone. Hughes, Parrillo, Anacleto, many incredible artists.
    On another note, it took me about four decades until it dawned on me to use references for drawing. As Alex mentions, it always seemed to me that a comic artist drew completely on imagination, as if anything else was cheating. A pal of mine who was doing work for an Image series brought the idea up while giving me a gentle I consider the decades lost for opportunities for easy improvement, all because I neglected something so simple and obvious.

    When I think of artisans of ages past, who were referred to as being 'masters', of their craft, of their art, over the all of their talents, Alex Ross comes to mind as being one of the modern equivalents, to me. Alongside Rockwell, Hopper, Van Gogh, et al. Marrying that kind of mastery of artistic achievement with that of comic books, our modern interpretation of those old world mythologies, is just heaven on earth, if I may say.
