Word for this vote - VEXING

Two MORE artists with wonderfully idiosyncratic styles - but whose work do you prefer?

Henry Flint - more info

OR

D'Israeli - more info

Alas we have to pick our favourite and to do so just pop the name of the art droid you’d most like to go through to the Semi Finals, but please add anything else you’d like to say as well.

This one will close and be counted on the morning of Friday 29th January

What the hell is all this? Find out more about the Art Droid Tourneys and Quarter Finals

Who made the 32 in both tourneys?

Rules for what they are worth

Anything else just ask and I’ll make something up.

Henry Flint
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

For me, as well as all the other stuff he has done, Flint is the number one current Dredd artist.

Lots of votes will rightly go to Henry, but for me the precise style of D'Israeli clinches it.

Both currently amazing. For me, Flint took more time to bed in. I also appreciate D'Israeli’s ability to shake things up. So he gets the nod from me, albeit by a whisker.

D'Israeli

D'Israeli- for Leviathan, Scarlet Traces and for challenging my eyes with his elaborate recent work on Stickleback.

D'Israeli for me - a tough choice but we're at that stage now...

I am a big fan of D'Israeli's work. He likes to mix up his style and can do grey-scale, colour and just plan B/W just as good. One thing I do not like about his art and that is his take on Dredd.

His style doesn’t always gel with Dredd, but looking at that first pic, it’s pretty good. It’s the helmet and face that feel a bit off. (Flint, of course, is the modern Dredd master.)

His art is just fantastic but I literally don't like his Dredd.
