The Art Of Pietro Antognoni

Pietro Antognioni is a ridiculously prolific comic artist based out of São Paulo, Brazil, pursuing his dream of someday being able to do his own comics fulltime, in between juggling teaching jobs, freelance and graphic design jobs. I'm surprised he isn't already independent, because his work is really awesome! Embracing the same mentality that Japanese artist Katsuya Terada possesses: The 'Rakugaki' path (Draw everywhere, anywhere, all the time) has allowed Pietro to truly hone his drawing skills to an all new level.

His drawings are extremely fluid and expressive, showcasing a true confidence and effortlessness that takes people years to master. No angle is too daunting, no pose out of question, while retaining a fun, playful style that's truly all his own, yet somewhat reminiscent of the good old days of Capcom's distinct house style. It's only a matter of time before he breaks out, in my opinion. Check out more of his awesome work after the break!
