Artist communities have taken to the interwebs, and DeviantArt is by far the most popular hotbed of social artist activity – globally. Hobbyists, professionals and everything in between can freely share their latest creations and receive feedback from fellow art enthusiasts. Our Biowars artists (Lucius, Joana and Goncalo) regularly scope out the sci-fi, fantasy and comics categories for inspiration, or to share the latest creations from the Biowars Creative Lab.

Here’s a selection of our favorite comic-style artists to “watch”. We hope you’re as inspired by their creativity as we are!

This piece is a collaboration between Israeli artist Aviv Or and character designer Patri Balanovsky. It’s from 2009 yet is still one of Or’s most popular “deviations” on the site. We can see why…!

Pretty inspiring stuff, huh?
Most if not all of these artists are independent freelancers, who followed their dreams and made a name for themselves online. Don’t forget to check out our own artwork come to life in Behind the Scenes. And stay tuned for future opportunities to submit your own artwork…
