Here's an artist that I discovered recently. I had seen many of his covers and liked them a lot without knowing who the artist was until I stumbled on his website.

Orbik was a student of illustrator Fred Fixler, a highly skilled illustrator best known for painting movie posters and elegant pretty girls:

Fred had been a student of Frank Reilly and Robert Beverly Hale at the Art Students' League (along with fellow classmates James Bama, among others). After a Fixler retired, Orbik took over teaching many of his classes.
Orbik has painted covers for comic books and mass-market paperbacks and hardcovers. He works in the traditional (non digital) style, the same tradition as many of the old pulp cover artists.
