Hey everyone! Thank you all so much for the watches, it's really encouraging and means the world to me.
To celebrate, here's 10 DA-ers who make work I think is awesome. (They are not numbered in order of awesomeness.)
Aljan by Wolfberry-J
I love the composition, and the use of colour to draw the eye and create a sense of atmosphere is absolutely fantastic.
Little World lll by AlejandroCastillo
I don't know very much about photography but man, is this photograph amazing. Stunning composition and beautiful use of focus. Not only that, it really captures the imagination.
Alas for the Lady of Shalott by emera
This piece, as well as being beautifully executed with stunning use of texture, has a fantastically dark sense of humour, which I absolutely love!
Katara YouTube by rossdraws
Talk about badass! Not only does this piece have an amazing compositional flow, but the gestural nature of the brush strokes make everything seem alive.
Reaching out - Acrylic on board by THollander
The artist has captured the flow of light over muscle and skin absolutely perfectly, and the result is sinuous perfection. I also LOVE the sketchy background, which draws attention to the smooth shading on the hands.
It is Springtime! by mockingbirdontree
This artist produces works that are always exuberant with colour and life. Incredibly charming and beautifully tactile, I would totally stick this on my window!
Peekaboo Squirrel detail by CapascesDigitalInk
This artist always manages to capture the life and character of a subject, often against backgrounds that promote reflection on their nature. Some of their works almost seem surreal!
Colin Rockwell Art Challenge by quiltineb
This artist is insanely good at creating a sense of solidity in a drawing and the way they render cloth and skin is almost unbelievably awesome. I also love the contrasts between light and dark.
Alchemist by akitku
I absolutely love this artist's work - they combine sophisticated skill with traditional media with a beautiful and sometimes heartwrenching sense of story. Besides, look at that composition!
Sleeping Wolf by HanaKaeru
Aside from having a truly insane amount of detail, this picture leads the eye in all the right directions. The wolf is also beautifully drawn. This picture creates a charming atmosphere of peace and contentedness.
And thank you to all those who commented on my work - it really means a lot to me.
