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.)
- 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)
- 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!
Extremely skilled concept artist, not just talented but different and original. (I love his asian themed artworks. ^-^)
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:
I will renew this journal one in a while with new discovery so to keep this thread alive. So check back often!
