*** Update info is at the end of this journal ***

Everybody Konnichiwa!

I haven't done artists feature in a while...Soooo
A sad thing about me being an artist is some time I get too caught up with my own art and forget about the community. It's mostly because I'm constantly focused towards creation, you know like improving skills and spinning your imagination to seek design ideas. So of course, I forget to pay attention towards other artists and honestly I do feel rather guilty about it as well, I mean with all the support that I'm getting and I barely returning any of it. (the GUILT!!!)

So here is my proposal and perhaps people can join in as well.
Why not post your "must watch" recommendation? I'm pretty sure, we all have artists we like and respect.

This way we can share and discover new artists and I don't have to feel like I'm missing out on inspiration from others. But it's not just for me, I think my visitors might find it worth while too.

Personally I like to discover artists with...:
- Unique style
- Artists who deserve a little bit more watch (we are probably familiar with "big names" on dA, so no need to recommend them.)


QUICK RULES:
- paste the avatar icon (format is ":iconartistname" add : at the end)
- MAX 2 artists per recommendation (please come back few days later if you have more)


NOT MANDATORY:
- Leave a message to the artist so they know you found them through recommendation.
- Not mandatory but short comments about the artist would be nice, but I understand you don't really need a reason to like someone's art. (So if you don't have no problem)
- Also NOT totally necessary but I would stay within Anime/Manga/Comic/Game concept artist as other genre maybe too far from what I do and my visitors and myself might not be able to fully appreciate it.


THE UPDATES 20140516:
Thank to all people who have posted their recommendations. I'm glad that this isn't just for me but my visitors seems to discover new artist through this thread. It's interesting to see the artistic taste of others too and it's not bad to be open to different influence time to time.

Recent recommendation addition!
:iconrossipoo:
Extremely skilled concept artist, not just talented but different and original. (I love his asian themed artworks. ^-^)
:iconscifijackrabbit:
Artist who is dedicated in drawing plump furry cuteness and very distinctive style too. (I happen to have a soft spot for them...)

People I've recommend in the past:
:iconthegreyninja::iconpixelisedmind:
I will renew this journal one in a while with new discovery so to keep this thread alive. So check back often!

If you love hardcore fantasy, fantasy things taken place is modern time of even sci-fi scenarios. I recommended The artists of :iconworld-of-aiers: 

:iconshabazik: (the creator) 

Aiers has a mass fanbase with many great artists(including myself). But since there's a limit of 2 I must go with :icongraphitestalker:

Maximum of 2? Hmm...

:iconagaave: EXCELLENT traditional artist, ESPECIALLY her dragons!

:iconshilesque: Does portraits of video game and anime characters in a beautifully realistic style, also does portraits of live action character(actors as the characters they play on TV and in the movies), and some characters I have no idea where she got.

No problem! You do some beautiful work!

Just too bad I don't have the money to commission you to do my characters!
I'd love to see Theran, his elder sister Katya, her husband Bran, and their daughter Karen all done in your style, but realistically speaking I doubt it'll ever happen.

She's a fantastic artist with a unique painterly style. She's always improving, always trying new things, and I think that's part of the reason why she deserves to be recognized more for her talent.

Wait there's a COMMUNITY on deviantArt??  (I'm really disconnected from every artists online for so long). Miss the days when community online meant mIRC chat rooms.  Collectively chatting and individually sending your images to friends or bothering to make a webpage for your recent sketch. XD

awww dude.. thanks!! surprised, and humbled.
already adding some awesome people to my own watch list, and figured i'd contribute. hard to pick just two for now, but here it goes:
:iconmilkyliu: really charming and edgy characters.. rough, energetic style. always has a fresh take when designing something we all know.
:iconbeezul:  friend of mine - always (especially recently) does interesting concepts, and rad organic shapes/proportions.
wish they would both post more stuff...

Rafael Perry :iconlost-tyrant:

Rafael is as equally talented with illustrating as he is colouring. There's not much that can be said, his work just has to be viewed.

Njaga Ceesay :iconnjaga:

Njaga recently died of cancer. I'm putting this choice up as a means to show others what potential the man had, and what was lost to his audience. A drawing style that as far as I'm concerned is unique to him in terms of character design, with a dynamic energy that rivals many others. He does not have too much to show in his gallery, but again, the potential shines through.

second :icondrigzabrot: I recently discovered him and I just enjoyed his designs.

:iconsinlaire: has some elaborate backgrounds full of amazing details and perspectives each of the details of their background, each of the objects, lights and etc are so well placed, not only are accompanied by brilliant colors, also of characters as unique and special designs that not only subtly accompany their works art but it also have tremendously amazing stories
:iconmoulinbleu: surely if I try to write something about this artistI will not find the words to describe the talent, technique and work put into each of amazing works, so you have to go and stalk his gallery it's gonna blow your mind

both are really inspiring UvU
