Last week during the @Loish Livestream, she mentioned two of her current favorite artists. Yun Ling (www.instagram.com/lingy000/) and Andrew Hem (www.instagram.com/andrewhem/). What living artists currently inspire you?

Well she is a musician artist. It's my cousin, she is blind and plays piano amazingly, that has been a big influencial artist on me.
Carmelo Blazquez (https://instagram.com/carmelo_blazquez) for classic figurative poses. For abstracts c0nf1u3nc3r (https://instagram.com/c0nf1u3nc3r) and Bonnie Ralston for textures (https://instagram.com/ralstonbonnie)
I love Guweiz's art. His light and shadow manipulation is just...*chef kiss* Beyond that though I guess I've not exposed myself to many extant artists, I've been too busy focusing on simple things like...drawing basic forms. Something to rectify in the near future then. Luckily, my fellow artists here have long lists of people to check out. :)
David Hockney - always up to experimenting and embracing new things, thinking big Tiffanie Mang - love her color studies Thibault Prugne - very precise with watercolor, lovely illustrations Luke Eidenschink - incredible line work Luke Adam Hawker - loose and relaxed lines with ink
Great question! I would say: Eric Bowman (https://www.instagram.com/ericbowmanart) His work look great like they are painted in 19th century by impressionist; Sean Murphy (https://www.instagram.com/seangordonmurphy) I'm glad I'm reading his Batman, it's excellent as a story or artwork; Cornelia Hernes (https://www.instagram.com/corneliahernesartwork) She's oil-painting style is stunning, really inspires; Mark Maggiori (https://www.instagram.com/markmaggiori) His modern views of frontier characters and horses are mind-blowing; Eliza (https://www.instagram.com/duck_twacy) She's totally awesome artist and character designer; Ryan Gajda (https://www.instagram.com/ryangajda) It's pronounced "Guider" - as he says. his portraits are always stylish and original.
So many great artists! I‘ll add Laurent Durieux, because I haven’t seen him mentioned yet. He’s making the most amazing screen printed posters, which I love for composition and color. https://instagram.com/laurent_durieuxillustration

Or am I completely wrong?
Quite a big list to be honest, few that come on top of my head Alan Lee, John Howe, Karl Kopinski, Bogdan Rezunenko. However big inspiration also comes from Hidetaka Miyazaki and his games.
Kim Jung Gi. I admire his freedom in both his finished work and his process.
Watching him draw is awe-inspiring and I love the way he describes drawing. He is "in" the drawings.
