Epic. Holy. Legendary. Mecha meets God, God meets mecha. All meets anime.
The art of Takayama Toshiaki (タカヤマトシアキ) takes anime and mecha to a level of exuberance that is usually only reached by studios like Gainax. They have appropriately done work for Square Enix, Konami, and Wizards of the Coast, showcasing their godlike characters and scenes.

Anime style pin-up specialist Shunya Yamashita ( 山下しゅんや) is an artists you may already know — becoming somewhat known in the US after the release of his art book Wildflower (his book after Sweet Dreams, followed by One Voice). Many of his pin-ups are from his original series Rick-O-Sound, but he also does a variety of fanart for Evangelion, DC Comic girls, Bayonetta, and Gurren Lagann (to name a few). Various characters from his Rick-O-Sound series have even been made into figures. He has also worked on various video games, including titles such as Final Fantasy X and Valkyrie Profile.
I am a fan of his anatomy and faces, considering how well he blends realism with the anime style. I also respect his use of traditional mediums.

With no rules and no limits, the artist known as Elsevilla uses his extremely unique style of anime to create images of pure fantasy. This Mexican artist is very active in the digital anime art world of Deivant Art. He is often available for commissions, somewhat responsive to questions and comments, and frequently hosts Live Stream videos of his artistic process.
I discovered this artist some time ago when I picked up a copy of the comic Lullaby (last image shown here), which is illustrated by Elsevilla. I later found his Deviant Art and fell vastly in love with his line-art and his aesthetic. I have learned a lot from him, and I hope you will enjoy his work.
