Ask comics fans about Alex Ross and you’ll get mixed but strong opinions. Many think his highly rendered watercolor and gouache comic illustrations “inappropriate” for comics storytelling, others find his work exciting and beautiful. I fall into the latter camp and have a tremendous respect for his water media technique. I also have no problem with his extensive use of photographic models. I feel that practice falls squarely in the tradition of great comic illustrators like Hal Foster, Alex Raymond and Al Williamson. Much of the most interesting art is to be found in the Ross Report newsletter section of the site.

I loved Alex Ross’s magazine illustrations years ago, but really liked his later fine-art watercolors best.
If I’m not mistaken, that’s another Alex Ross. I’ll dig for some information on that.
I love Alex Ross’s artwork. He is amazing! Genius!
Could anyone tell me what comic book/graphic novel the above image was taken from?
@Matthew: It’s the scene from the 1st installment of a 12issue comicbook (limited) series by DC, called JUSTICE.
You can get more info at this wiki-entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justice_(DC_Comics)
Also there’re ISBNs for the collectible editions of the book, in case you wanna have’em. All the best.
