It's time for some features! In this journal entry, I will be showcasing some artwork that I feel needs more attention (in no particular order). All of the artists are hand-picked by myself, and they are not made aware of the feature until it is posted. In other words, it's a surprise!
I will generally be choosing art pieces that reflect various fandoms that I myself have been involved in, to match the interests of my current watchers.
The plan is to submit new Artists' Feature Spotlight entries periodically with new or undiscovered talents to keep things fresh and interesting. If there is any art that you feel should be here, please note me about it personally. I will consider it for a feature based on quality. Art that is already fairly popular will not be considered.
Now, onto the beautiful artwork!
First up, I want to bring attention to a new favorite artist of mine, ~Naplez
is a talented artist from South Korea that has a very dynamic and unique style which flows nicely in her work. The fluidity and distinct sense of motion in her lines make them stand out in a visually appealing way. She manages to establish a strong connection with the characters that she draws, so a lot of emotion is conveyed both effectively and efficiently. Her art is the perfect example of fanart done right; capturing the essence of the original whilst adding a unique flare that doesn't take away from it. Visit their gallery!
Next, I want to feature ~MissChee
is a fairly new artist here whose gorgeous coloring style instantly caught my attention. The clever use of bright color and glow lends itself well to her darker scenes. She has recreated many memorable moments that Zim fans will recognize and adore. Her painting style adds a whole new dimension to the show that I feel every fan should see. Visit their gallery!
Third in this feature is *WindWolf13
I have admired this artist's work for a while and feel that a feature is long overdue. Their artwork is beautifully detailed and constantly improving. She is very friendly and has many interesting concepts/ideas that she expresses in her art. Her strong imagination and creativity keep me coming back to her gallery time and time again. I adore her cute fuzzy characters, as well as her darker Zim art. She has a little bit of everything in her gallery, even cosplay. It is all lovely and she is overall just a beautiful person. Give her some love! Visit their gallery!
Fourth in this feature is =0MIN0US
Cute, crazy and colorful are the three words that come to mind when I think of her work. She has a very particular method for drawing Irken characters that I find visually appealing, and also intriguing. I love her bright backgrounds and fun character expressions. Equally, I enjoy her darker pieces that convey a lot of eerie emotion. If you're a fan of Irken characters and have not yet seen her work, then you're missing out. Visit their gallery!
Fifth to be featured is *Yommii
I've only very recently discovered this artist's work via "More Like This" and was instantly in love with what I saw. *Yommii
has a fun drawing style and paints beautiful backgrounds as well. The vivid colors and pretty details in some of her pieces draw me in and make me stare for a while. I was surprised to find that not many have discovered her talents here just yet. Please pay her a visit! Visit their gallery!
Sixth in this list is ~Sonicspeed5
is an artist who is very passionate about her work. I can see love and dedication in the art that she creates. She is quickly becoming an amazing colorist and honing her skills, bringing simple drawings to life through gorgeous displays of tonal shifts and clean lineart. I am in awe at how far she has come in so little time. She inspires me every single day. Visit their gallery!
Last but certainly not least is ~SylvieNe
This is an artist that I've known for several years. She has a lot of drawing experience and has created many lovely pieces of artwork in a style that I can always recognize as her own. I've worked with her before on multiple collaborative projects, as her clean lines are a pleasure to color. She has proven that she can draw a little of everything, ranging from eastern to western styles, fanart and even anthro art. The crispness of her linework and skill with a simple pencil literally puts my messy sketches to shame. I only wish she'd upload more! Visit their gallery!
Alrighty, that's all for now! I hope you've enjoyed the Artists' Feature Spotlight. If any of you featured artists would like to be removed from this list for any reason, please note me and I will do so promptly. Likewise, if there are any artists you feel deserve a feature, please let me know about them!
Thanks for looking, and stay creative~
