Brian Cooper has been passionate about drawing since he was a kid. His creations have long been inspired by the stories he consumes in comic books, films, and video games. His style can definitely be called cute, but he also brings in other elements and emotions to make his images richer. For example, take a look at this stylized Princess Leia art—she looks sassy, which is exactly how it should be.

Cooper's great at taking characters' personality traits and showcasing them in such a way that you see the character in a different, interesting fashion. I think Rocket Raccoon looks like he's just the right amount of crazed in this piece:

You can see more of Cooper's unique take on characters you know and love in the gallery below. You'll find Newt Scamander, Spider-Gwen, Wolverine, and more. If you'd like to keep up Cooper's work, you can hop on over to Instagram and follow him. If you want to add prints of his illustrations to your collection, you can do so at his Etsy shop.
Do you create any sort of fan art? I want to see it, all of it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories, I'd like to highlight your portfolio. If you'd like to be featured in a future Fan Art Friday gallery, get in touch with me at [email protected] and show me examples of your work.
