Barry Windsor-Smith

Of all the artists who've worked in the field of comics, I'd be hard-pressed to name one as my absolute favorite, but if I had to, then I would choose Barry.  Among comic fans, Barry is probably most well-known for his work on Conan the Barbarian.  During his tenure on the series, Barry underwent a great artistic growth -- if you read his run on the title from start to finish, you'll see his talent developing and maturing right in front of your eyes!  While his earliest work drew heavily on such comic book greats as Jack Kirby and Jim Steranko for inspiration, it was his interest in the Pre-Raphaelite movement of the 19th century that drove him to new artistic heights on Conan and his later work for his own publishing company, Gorblimey Press.  I love his classical figurework and attention to detail.
