Hey everyone! First and foremost I want this to be an artist feature of some of the folks I follow and whom I feel don't get enough attention for their artwork. This may or may not be because devaintart is starting to become a dead art-platform to share works--it's entirely possible that these artists I'm about to share just haven't had the chance to be exposed to a certain audience either. So without any more delay, here are a few of my favs:faliessDragon
Evgenia is an absolutely amazing artist. I can't remember when it was that I found their artwork but their style and unique take with the ballpoint pen really drew me in and reminded me about why I love drawing with a pen. Their dreams act as a foundation for many of their pieces and as they've had the chance to go through art classes/courses over the years, their art continues to improve leaps and bounds and it's just... so exciting! I can't wait to see what new things they create, and I hope you give their gallery a look.SashaWren
Wren is an artist I met through a small group and ever since I followed their artwork. I love their unique creatures and keen sense of anatomy when it comes to drawing them. Colors are smooth, and her lineart is to die for. I have such a fun time looking through their gallery.sterlingy
I'm not entirely sure how active this artist is on deviantart, as they have a small gallery, but it's still worth a look. They have a great handle on character design and they also have a soft spot for Pokemon and Mass Effect fanart. <3 And goodness, their dinosaur drawings are lovely.MagicalMoments16
The Art of Chelsea Dostert isn't something I'm typically drawn to (as I enjoy immense detail), however the simplicity of her style is just so adorable and the colors are what REALLY draw me in. Velannal
I love their dark palette that they choose to work from. The sketchiness of their art works for them and their style looks like it's still being developed, but I'm interested in seeing where it takes them!
Note: I was super dumb and decided to start this at midnight, I'm totally going to update more artists to this in either a new journal or this existing one, but for now, a quick update on my life and then off to bed with me!
Currently I've moved from South Korea and my new home is northern Japan! I'm finally back into the countryside and out of the city and I'm absolutely loving it. I've been doing nothing but living out of the suitcase for the past 6 months- between moving and traveling for leisure and deployments, I haven't really had a time to sit down and relax. Or draw for that matter. I've gotten myself a pet (finally now that I'm living in my own house). She's a cute little kitten named Lily. <3 I can post pictures if people are interested! I also got my own car (first one!) and I've been learning how to drive in Japan. Driving on the left side of the road is totally natural to me now. xD
I'm currently temp. deployed, sitting in the middle of nowhere in Alaska. Anyone from there? I'll be here for a few weeks.
Thanks for sticking with me you guys, you have no idea how much it means to me! I'm hoping to do some more ink drawings in the comming days. Anyone have any good drawing/ink challenges they've seen online? Please share so I can try them out!
