Brian Froud, you could say, is the most well known fairy artist of our time. His images are strewn across books, posters, calendars, stationary, you name it. He did the concept art for the Jim Henson puppetry movies The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Fun fact: He’s also married to Wendy Froud, creator of the puppet Yoda of the Star Wars franchise. Unbeatable team there, eh?

Yoshitaka Amano has been one of my favorite artists for a long time. His dynamic, wispy, elegant style is very recognizable in the Japanese market. He is best known for his concept work on the Final Fantasy game series and the show Vampire Hunter D. He mostly works in pen and watercolor, but also does a lot with printmaking.

I met Peter Mohrbacher at the Dragon Con art show last year. He had a booth with a lot of really impressive digital work. My friends stopped and talked with him for a while. If I remember correctly he did some work on Magic: The Gathering cards. And what made it even more impressive was that he wasn’t very long out of college and was already making a name for himself. :)
