Artist Series - Day 115: Gustave Dore



I was talking to a friend at a comic store yesterday, showing him Bernie Wrightson's "Frankenstein", and he mentioned he didn't know who today's artist was.  Dore is the ultimate expression for me of OCD linework ;)  There is so much to learn in his work about rendering and texturing.  I know him best for his illustrations for the Bible and Dante's "Inferno", but he did lots more stuff as well, including a great series on London that every wannabe steampunk artist should look at.
