Spreading Semi-Realism appreciation!

Since I believe the efforts of semi-realism artists are not sufficiently appreciated, because there are so many fantastic illustrations in this style that does not have the right visibility on here, I decided to create an article to advertise these artists that are, for me, the 'new faces' of this fashionable and yet so difficult art style.
First of all, Semi-realism is a drawing style derived from mangas but more complex in terms of style. Indeed, if we want to be more precise, it is the missing link between mangas and digital art. No giant eyes but neither skin blemishes. 
I would really appreciate if dA could add a category for this particular art style but I can easily admit the boundaries to define this style are very labile.
Well, after this brief introduction, I'm featuring some samples of this style from really talented people. Many of these artists came directly from the manga world, but perhaps not fully satisfied with it, they started to complicate their lives for real. Because semi-realism is difficult, really. You must know anatomy and other boring stuff, but BLAH BLAH BLAH. Too much talking. 
Enjoy this little feature. I hope you will find some new artists to watch and stalk (in alphabetical order).
