|if any points to spare id be really happy^^|
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!
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! 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..
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.
she is so ff-ing amazing 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.
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.
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.
Master of tutorials and studies.
also one of my more recent watches, color understanding and composition heaven.
this started of as a rather silly watch 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.
that detail one of my more earlier watches. there was a time I tried to fav his entire gallery. I gave up on that task
His gallery is so colourfull there is this lovely mixture between sexy/mature and cute and feminine illustrations.
I present to you. COLOR! yes omg yes.
also one of my older watches. So classy and detailed
I wish I had the money to buy her entire gallery it's just to much cool stuff.
another freshly added watch. His work feels so classical and mature. It has a certain depth in it.
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.
he is such an inspiration. one of my first watches that had more scenery kind of paintings in his gallery.
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.
master of form and value.
such soft and sweet photographs truly capturing the mystics of nature in Japan.
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.
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.
again one that doesn't need explanation.
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.
Best. portrait. photographer. ever. PERIOD.
traditional master. also a really old watch one of my first even the only person that I feel ever was capable of capturing the out of this world look of sebastian michaelis on paper next to the original mangaka
Fabric, faces, water master.
animation heaven. not only great animation but also hilarious situations.
hyper realistic naruto portraits.
another great animator and conceptartist.
abosolutely mesmerizing landscape photography, great compositions.
yet another great animator (and illustrator)
recently found artist that I greatly look upto. amazing understanding of composition, space, form, texture etc etc. and a very promising set of animations.
-s- (I have WAY to many artists I am watching starting with s omg I will pick a few from this haha)
my dearest little sister whom I am very proud of. not only is she crazy intelligent (she should become a writer). she also has a fair skill-set for drawing. I especially am fond of her line-art, clothing and eye for detail.
these two are just TOOOOOOOO adorable omg I wish I could pinch their cheeks. they are so full of energy and are super active in the community always kindly and enthusiastically interacting with their admirers I only recently found out it where two persons sharing one account. There gallery is impressive overloading you with colors and fun and cuteness without it being annoying and overly girly. I absolutely adore these girls.
yet another crazy good young artist.
my newest watch. absolutely breathtaking gifs. an artist that definitely deserves way more credit and aknowledgement.
and another super young crazy great artist uchuu not only being super skilled but also a really kind person and being very active in the community. I absolutely love uchuu
next to Kr0npr1nz is wlop another top 3 artist of mine. I love his brushwork and his use of greys.
another quite recent watch. GREAT photographer, brilliant eye for composotion and his editing giving them a small mythical/surreal hint.
taking the throne in my top three together with kr0npr1nz and Wlop. my absolute number 1 favorite modern artist.
I aren't watching an artist with the letter z O.O any suggestions?
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.
