Today's update is devoted to the best artists to turn to when you work on Cyberpunk or Sci-Fi themed art. We have eight illustrators (one of them in --niji!), a painter, and even a photographer for you to try!
Asaf Hanuka (b. 1974) is an Israeli illustrator and cartoonist best known for his work for the daily newspaper Haaretz and illustrations in The New Yorker, Time Magazine, and Rolling Stone.
Hanuka's Midjourney style is vibrant and dynamic, with beautiful color pallets, fine lines, and complex compositions.
Australian comics artist, illustrator, and toy designer (!) Ashley Wood (b. 1971) is famous for "Popbot," "World War Robot," and "Zombies vs. Robots" series.
Wood's Midjourney style is matte painting-like, with a muted color palette.
Generations with Ashley Wood's name are rarely textured, and for that
reason dreamy and light.
Bob Eggleton (born 1960) is an American science fiction and fantasy artist specializing in book covers, magazine illustrations, and posters, and working as a concept artist for films and video games. He has won multiple Hugo Awards for Best Professional Artist, and his work has appeared in numerous publications including Heavy Metal, Dragon, and National Geographic.
Eggleton's Midjourney style is a vivid, highly detailed, and imaginative fairytale with strong colors. Great for fantasy and sci-fi art!
Bob Layzell (b. 1940) is a British illustrator and cartoonist regularly published in The Independent, The Guardian, and The Times. He has also illustrated several children's books.
When added to your prompts, Bob Layzell's name produces bright and deep illustrations with clean lines and simple shapes mixed in expressive and dynamic scenes.
Dan Matutina is a Filipino graphic designer and illustrator known for his unique, minimalist style that combines hand-drawn elements with digital techniques. Apart from working for various commercial clients (such as Google and Apple), he also showed his works in publications like New York Times.
Dan Matutina's Midjourney style is all about simplicity, bold use of lines and shapes, and a limited yet beautiful color palette.
Jae Lee (b. 1972) is a Korean-American comics artist and penciler known for his work on various comics titles, including "The Sentry" and "Dark Tower" series, several issues of "Batman/Superman," and "Inhumans." He has been nominated several times for the Eisner Award and won the award for best penciler/inker in 1996.
Jae Lee's Midjourney style is best characterized as dark, moody, and atmospheric. It generates quick strokes and uses shadows, contrasts, and deep blacks to create a sense of mystery and drama. A perfect style for sci-fi posters!
Jakub Rozalski (b. 1981), also known as Mr. Werewolf, is a Polish digital painter famous for his fantasy and science fiction illustrations, particularly his "1920+" series, which is set in an alternative history world where the technology of the 1920s is combined with giant robots and machinery. Apart from producing personal series, Rozalski worked on various video game concept art, book covers, and posters.
The Midjourney version of Jakub Rozalski is painterly, detailed, and realistic, with a focus on landscapes and context, architecture, and machinery. It often uses a cold color pallet with occasional splashes of warm hues. Great style for creating massive-scale fantastic worlds filled with nostalgia and futurism.
Japanese manga artist and illustrator Takeshi Obata (b. 1969) worked on some of the most popular manga series of our time, including "Death Note," "Bakuman," and "All You Need is Kill." He is known for his detailed and dynamic illustrations, created with both traditional and digital techniques.
In Midjourney, Takeshi Obata's style is notable for its high detailing, strong atmosphere, high-energy compositions, and beautiful colors.
American space artist and architect Chesley Bonestell (1888-1986) is considered one of the most important space artists of the 20th century. He created many illustrations of space art and architectural perspectives, and many of them were used in books, magazines, and films, such as "Destination Moon" and "When Worlds Collide."
Bonestell's Midjourney style is a vivid and painterly illustration filled with the spirit of interplanetary exploration. Prepare for vast otherworldly landscapes, elaborate spaceships, and brave discoverers as main heroes.
A surprise appearance on this list is the American photographer Richard Misrach (b. 1949), considered one of the most important contemporary landscape photographers. He is best known for his large-scale color photographs of the American West, particularly the deserts of the Southwest. His work often explores the relationship between the natural landscape and human intervention, with a focus on the impact of development and climate change.
