I'm a big fan of Green Lantern, since my girlfriend introduce me to Green Lanterns Corp Issue #1 I got in touch with the art of Patrick Gleason. Nowadays, Patrick have worked on other titles at DC comics as Batman, Robin, H-E-R-O, Aquaman, Brighest Day and JSA.
Pixel art is still one of my all time favorite styles, probably because I grew up in the 80s playing Atari. Early generation consoles had an additional influence on me as this type of illustration was pretty common. The amazing thing about pixel art is that it reduces the form to the minimum amount of detail that makes it recognizable. The illustrations of Ercan Akkaya are good examples.
