"Do it for the badge!" XD Happy birthday deviantArt!
Sorry for the inactivity. I'm back on dA now, and will probably be uploading things. I'm going to delete all of my awful old art sometime this week or put them in a folder labled "old art" and leave the decent ones up. I'm going to try and clean up my profile for a new start.
Here, not in any particular order, is the art for the story. I've seen that most people feature their own art for this, but I think that in order to show how deviantArt helped me, it's better to show the art I found on dA that has inspired me:
This is by AlexanderJanson. He's great! I chose his artwork because I love his style and color scheme. He's one of the first artists I
found on dA, and caused me to try digital art. My digital art is...eh... (lol) but when I see his art, I get a lot of ideas and am re-inspired to try it again.
This is by FeltAlive. It's needle felted! I thought their felt sculptures were cool, so now I'm trying to get into it. Here's their off-dA website:feltalive.com/
By Random-Acts-Stock. There are a lot of helpful stock photos on dA that are great for drawing references. I look to these for help with human poses.
#4 is by PixieCold and #5 sanguisGelidus
They are siblings! (fun fact lol) and two the nicest dA members I've seen. PixieCold paints very beautiful eyes (among other things) and sanguisGelidus has very atmospheric scenes. They are both very talented and popular, yet haven't developed a 'god complex'. They are kind to their watchers, and sometimes even take the time to respond to feedback you give them. A lot of popular dA artists I've seen don't do that! Here is their youtube channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UChkdT…
