#watch forever

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 19, 2015, 7:23 AM

ohaaai! :squee:  

-I dare say this will be the longest future in history!-

so after my lately more negative posts and rants I thought it was time for something positive again! And what's not positive in featuring and admiring other artists! :eager:

There has been this massive wave of journals going round with the #watchforever tag showing artists you have been watching and admiring and will keep on watching and admiring. So I am gonna do just that! :typerhappy: even though I have "only" been here for 2 and a half year=] I am not gonna be spamming you with all my watches as I admire A LOT of people x]

So here are some lovely artists I think you should have at least checked out once..:iconluffylaplz:


:iconabz-j-harding: one of my earlier watches, I started watching her because of her Naruto fanart but her art matured and I love her non fan-arts as much as I love her fan-arts. I especially enjoy her linework.
Many things you were by Abz-J-HardingSo you still draw dragons? by Abz-J-HardingEmerge to Amber by Abz-J-Harding:Kakashi:Ketsurui: by Abz-J-Harding


:iconapfelgriebs: she is so ff-ing amazing :iconinloveplz: I remember seeing one of her work on some other site then DA a couple of years back. when I found her on DA it was an instant +watch. her use of color and texturing is so advanced.
Girl on Fire by apfelgriebsMaster Yoda by apfelgriebsI'm an agent of chaos. by apfelgriebs


:iconbiwervincent: One of my more recent watches. he has a great eye for composition and tonal settings. and is really eager to become better and better. I love that about him.
Battle by BiwerVincentsketches 12 by BiwerVincentProtecting the queen by BiwerVincent


:iconbronart: If you love traditional art you should definitely check out bronarts work. her gallery consists of amazing traditional works from toned paper studies to oil-paints. her strongest point for me definitely is her eye for lightning and mood setting.

:iconconceptcookie: Master of tutorials and studies.
Exercise 31 Results: Creature Feature Step by Step by ConceptCookieHand and Fingers Resource Tutorial by ConceptCookieExercise 22 Results: Familiar Faces by ConceptCookie


:iconcoupleofkooks: also one of my more recent watches, color understanding and composition heaven.
Speedpaints: Game of Thrones II by coupleofkooksDA:I Krem by coupleofkooksDA:I Dorian by coupleofkooksSpeedpaint: The Nameless One by coupleofkooks


:icondanarart: this started of as a rather silly watch:p I liked his work sure enough but didn't pay that much attention to it. I was quite new to DA and I saw someone from the Netherlands, with a name that resembled my real name. I was like "oh cool, +watch" it was untill a few months later I really started paying attention to his amazing work. Great understanding of composition and colour/lighting.
World War by DanarArtDesert Walker by DanarArtGirl sketch by DanarArt


:icondaviddeb: that detail :drool: one of my more earlier watches. there was a time I tried to fav his entire gallery. I gave up on that task=D
A Song of Fire by DavidDebNarnia by DavidDebSpock by DavidDebHappy New Year 2015 by DavidDeb


:iconelsevilla: His gallery is so colourfull :heart: there is this lovely mixture between sexy/mature and cute and feminine illustrations.

:icongrandmathunderpants: I wish I had the money to buy her entire gallery it's just to much cool stuff.
Attack on Titan Necklace Set by GrandmaThunderpantsIwatobi Swim Club Necklaces by GrandmaThunderpantsKoi Pond Necklace by GrandmaThunderpants


:iconhoooook: another freshly added watch. His work feels so classical and mature. It has a certain depth in it.
Hoooook-1 by hoooook22-9 by hoooook.. by hoooook

:iconhuachui: her work is so unbelievably sweet and sophisticated. it feels so genuine and soft she is one of my older watches and I keep on coming back to her gallery every so often. she also has grown A lot the last couple of years.

:iconimaginateartwork: he is such an inspiration. one of my first watches that had more scenery kind of paintings in his gallery. 
The Observatory by ImaginateArtworkThe Observatory 2 by ImaginateArtworkThe Observatory 3 by ImaginateArtwork

:iconiya-chen: An artist I feel that is truly comfortable with her skills and style. I can't even begin to start describing what I think is amazing about her work.
Hey Brother by iya-chenTokyo Ghoul by iya-chenProsper by iya-chenForest of Magic by iya-chen


:iconjiyu-kaze: master of form and value.
Ice cream by Jiyu-Kazefreya crescent final fantasy 9 by Jiyu-KazeAvalon by Jiyu-Kaze


:iconjyoujo: such soft and sweet photographs truly capturing the mystics of nature in Japan. 
an Oyster , a Pearl by jyoujowhite day by jyoujoechoes and anchors by jyoujo


:iconkelogsloops: then there are these artist that even though they inspire you you feel this pang of healthy jealousy. Kelogsloops is such a young artist yet her gallery is so unbelievably breathtaking not only showing you a personal signature but going beyond that and showing skill and passion in all of her work be it her watercolors or her digital paintings. she is absolutely amazing and an inspiration to young and old artists all over the world.
The Little Mermaid: Part of Your World by kelogsloopsThe Red Hood by kelogsloopsInto the Blue by kelogsloopsFade into Serenity by kelogsloops


:iconkr0npr1nz: I believe all artists have a top 3/10 of all time favorite artists. ilya is in my personal top 3. I can't stop loving his work. Every single drawing he uploads (in a ridiculous time span) is high quality and a little masterpiece in my eyes. it is very inspirational. he is getting a lot of hate for his reference usage. while in my eyes he is one of the few artists that is actually using references how you should use them. 
Halcyon by KR0NPR1NZHelmet by KR0NPR1NZRaven by KR0NPR1NZ


:iconlen-yan: again one that doesn't need explanation.
hope by len-yanperseus by len-yanmaehwa by len-yancrystal set by len-yan

:iconloish: we all love or should love Loish. I already enjoyed her work. though after listening to an interview and paying attention to her more recent works I fell in love all over again with her gallery. An artist from the same country, I look up to, and someone who is for me a milestone. I really want to get to the same skill level as her.

I aren't watching an artist with the letter z O.O any suggestions?=D

I highly recommend making a #watchforever journal I rediscovered my personal taste and what has changed in the last couple of years in how I look at art in general.

So writing this journal took me 3 hours. ffs I took the day off to work on projects damn you brain what where you thinking omg. 

:heart: Dana

Fan-art Friday: The Walking Dead by Kaizoku-hime
Fan-art Friday: The Walking Dead
Okay so I apologize for the lack of detail in this one or actually I just think it doesn't look right at all xD but the paper was 50x65cm and I was working on a school table that was horizontal so I had to bow all over it while looking at the reference... I am actually quite proud it isn't more confusing and wonky:p but I didn't want to skip another Fanart Friday D:

I am in the middle of moving and it has been such a stressful week! My s.o had to work overtime as well and we had to make all kind of arrangements. I just want to sleepCry forever I can't wait till next week to finally move in together with my bf, in our new, own, apartment with my kitties <3 so I never have to travel 5 hours a day again when I have school Gloomy on a side note. My bf finally got me into the walking dead which I had been avoiding all this time. Even though I find it awefully cliché I can't help but craving the next episode all day long! (I am only in the middle of season 2 though so if ya spoil something I will hunt you down in your sleep!) obviously I love Daryl's character most.:squee:
