I do have some idea of what I'm looking for. I want to avoid people on DeviantART, same-style concept artists, or pretty much anyone working in the entertainment industry. Current artists are alright so long as they don't fall into these categories. ( I had a classmate who pointed out a bunch of good ones but I lost the list. DAMN!)
Ye olde timey artists are good. Right now I'm looking at William-Adolphe Bouguereau. Anything Romantic period or Hudson River School is super amazing. Also La Tour and Vermeer. And Rembrandt.
Buuuut those are all painters (plus some etching) and I'd love to be pointed in the direction of someone more recent whose focus is in drawing. Or whatever. Just whatever you've come across that looks good (think art museum caliber). Doesn't have to be realistic rendering with classical themes. You art history kids know what I mean.
