Who is Diozz?
The very first memories of the robot-loving art fiend Diozz were giant robots and dinosaurs…much to his mother’s dismay. Inspired by Mazinger-Z, Battle of the Planets, Transformers, He-Man and GI-Joe, Diozz can proudly say that 39 years later, not much has changed. Well… maybe he likes monsters more than dinosaurs now, but the giant robots are still there!
Training and studying under painters and fine art masters throughout his life has certainly allowed Diozz to evolve as an artist, but his artistic preference always centered on comic book art. To make a good comic book, you need knowledge of practically every branch of art: anatomy, fashion design, interior design, architecture… yup, if there’s one thing Diozz tells his students, it’s that if you want to create comics, you need to know a bit of everything considered “art.” Diozz says: “Being a part of Artix has given me the opportunity to enjoy all the things I love doing as I bring you the characters you know and love, but portrayed in an exciting new light.”
So you want to know the secret to doing what Diozz does? “It’s simple… know what you love, and draw it. Never be afraid to challenge yourself. THAT’s the secret of a great comic book artist. After all, everyone loves to draw super heroes, but not everyone loves drawing the city the superheroes fly through. But you’d miss all those awesome, essential superhero comic details – from the huge buildings to tiny pedestrians – wouldn’t you? So relax, sit back, and enjoy the ride. Trust me, it's worth it.”
How inspirational! Thanks Diozz! Give him a shoutout on his Twitter, too!
And at 4pm today, you too can get inspired by Diozz’s robotic Mechs!
