So, I have a DeviantART account from… god, it must be from high school. I like DeviantART because it’s simple and it’s huge. It’s so full of young and old artists, and it’s a practically ancient artist’s networking site. It was there way before facebook and myspace and CafePress and Imagekind and Fine Art America and Zazzle… all that shabang. I browse it every once and a while and I’m always impressed at the amazing talent that I find.
I wanted to post/feature ten images recently that I really, really like. I asked permission from every one of them, of course.
The very talented artist, LadyAdler, posted this to the Art Nouveau group that I hover on. She has a series of fairytale princesses drawn up in this style. I totally love it because it reminds me of Mucha.
I am always really surprised by artists who can do work this full of light, contrast, and intensity with paint and other non-digital materials. It looks like it’s glowing, so it must look like it’s on a monitor… but it’s NOT; this is oil. Spectacular.
I love this piece by Coliandre. It’s note done yet, but it’s still really spectacular and interesting. More of his sculptures are here on his site.
What can I say? This is just really the most adorable thing EVER, and it is what I will leave you with.
