Dan Neidlinger is a fulltime artist going after his lifelong dream - he was a comic fan since he was a kid, where he spent his time attending cons and buying comics (mainly for the art). More recently, he has expressed gratitude for the opportunity to be on the other side of the table at local cons over the last few years. Neidlinger is known for his realistic cover sketches, which reflect the art styles of his schools and instructors. He studied with the Barnstone Studios where he learned fine art and worked with the old masters like Myron Barnstone. For the last 4 years, Neidlinger has studied the comic industry, storyboarding, and inking under Scott Hanna, one of the most accomplished inkers in the comic industry. He has also expanded his art skills by taking drawing and painting studio courses, one of which was learning from Dorian Vallejo.
