My vote's for Cassaday:

In my mind, this is how Wolverine should look like. Short, stout, and kind of animalistic. Plus, Cassaday's mask is my favorite rendition of the Wolverine mask. I also really dig Silvestri's Wolverine.

Worst is probably Bryan Hitch's. Seriously, the guy's my favorite artist, but he seems entirely incapable of getting Logan's mask right:

Can't forget Francesco Mattina. Sure, it is only a cover, but it's just soooo fricking awesome.

I love the detail of the facial hair hanging out. Logan have never claimed to be pretty. I dont get the skin tone though, looks like zombies almost.

You're all wrong.  
 
Olivier Coipel draws the best everyone. 
 
John Romita Jr. has a solid Wolverine. 
 
Jim Lee's Wolverine is probably the best though.

@Doombert: I like the detail period. The way the light reflects off of the claws, Wolverine's reflection on the sword and sunglasses. I agree on the facial hair, and the hair in general is pretty loose. I don't mind the skin tone. The cover captures the intensity. The cover is gritty. Mattina is a severely underrated cover artists IMO since he doesn't seem to get as much mention as Del'Otto or Bianchi, but those guys do interiors as well.

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned him yet but Steve Mcniven? And yea Mark Silvestri and Jim Lee are legendary

@testament: McNiven-good one! "Old Man Logan" was excellent. Him, Lee, Silvestri, and Leinil Francis Yu all tie for #1 in my book. Sean Chen is very good also. I think Wolverine should look gritty though, so "pretty boy" Logan ain't the depiction for me.

Favorite "clean" artist: Alan Davis

Favorite "gritty" artist: Steve Lightle (also my favorite artist for Cyber)

Adam Kubert, John Byrne, Sean Chen.

Sean Chen should draw Wolverine again in the future.
