Today's Rate the Comic Book Artist segment, as requested by @andromeda101, features Greg Smallwood. A relatively new talent in the industry, Smallwood carries a unique style of his own such as thick and minimalist linework as the background inks and colors set the mood. Starting his spotlight career as a Moon Knight artist in Marvel Comics, Smallwood is currently working on Punisher and has done a number of other titles in the company as well as for smaller companies.

I'd rate him a 7. I like his art style but his figures feel stiff.

7. I think his style is good.

Would love to see Pepe Larraz next. His House of X was really good.

I give him a 9 because of Doctor Strange: The Best Defense, which I think it's his best work yet. Smallwood's style fits better with grimm dark storylines.

Something I particularly noticed it, Smallwood's art seems better when the setting is at night and/or has more shadows.

In my personal opinion, I think Greg would be an amazing definitive artist for Strange because of that. Even more so if we're talking about something in the horror-vibes, which's something that Mark Waid recently seems interested in doing it.

I think he's pretty solid. Nice use of pencils and gradations as actual media, not just for linework.

Agreed, Smallwood's art is so aesthetically sometimes. That's why I like it so much.
