Prelude and Disclaimer
Perhaps I have chosen not to betray any signs of admiration or respect for fellow artists because I do not want these feelings to come off as forced or stifled, or even misplaced. So beware that in my admittance of thus, for those people whom may not be aware of my true affections (if I may use this word) of their work, I have no intension of portraying myself in any different light that you may see me in currently. This is not an attempt to gain any sort of gratitude from another artist, nor to play on pity in trying to shine myself as inferior, nor to come off as so highly conceited that my remarks may be anything more or less than simple compliments. Please do not believe that if I do not mention your name, that I have any intention on marring you or your appearance. Sometimes I just have not the words to place. With that being said.Deviants You Should Know
Although she is a rather new artist in my books, she is indeed a very talented sort. While I do not like to mention age, considering hers, it is amazing both in her skill and speed of which she can work.
Simply put, an astonishing young animator with incredible potential.
Photographer and poet who has improved very quickly over a short span of time. I feel unqualified to make any speech in regards to photography (it being very far from myself) he has a good few pieces which are spot on professional. As for poetry, may I mention that despite being Norwegian, his command of the English language is rather precise, if not cryptic.
Rather puzzling in that there is a mixture of still developing and situated talent. From piece to piece, there are leaps of improvement that sometimes seem unnatural (not said to discredit)
To put words to a personal friend is awkward, and I fear that I may refrain from doing them full justice. Once again, a photographer and poet, and this time also a painter. Photography seems to jump in subjects, although on several occasions the intention of the photo is rather cynically ironic. As a poet, the use of literary rhetoric is developed, considering that most ' poets ' choose to ignore that which gives poetry its beauty. As a painter, he is vaired, and as a person often mistaken for forthright in simplicity, he is vindicated in complexity that I believe many overlook.
As a partner on many projects, one would expect me to say that we are alike in our ideas, and easily agreeable. This is not true. If she were much like me, then I would find her uninteresting as a work-partner. She adds something different to the equation, perhaps because in trait we are so different. It is that difference which is most helpful in finding the correct balance, as well as taking away from extremes. In artwork, she is like prodigy, but to call her a prodigy would be to insult her development. She is not a prodigy, but adept in learning. She does not have that jaded property that so many talented artists possess, and she has retained her innocence from arrogance.
A pixel artist that is unmatched, so much so that is rather frightening. He has a rather natural ability that can not be explained (or at least not justly so by myself) As a writer, he captivates a rare humor, not in that it is so much unique, but in that it is correctly without being stifled.
If I can say nothing else, then let it be the style of her work that best captures my attention. While in design, realistic, it has obtained a surreal perspective in that compliments the artwork. It is both light and airy, yet not overly so.
To put words to personal friends is not something I find easy. I know not entirely what to say, beyond that in quality, she has something fittingly unique. It needs not be heavy, nor fluid, for it is almost cloudlike. She seems to have been influenced by older works of time, for in theme and style it seems neo-antiquity. In personality, she too is cloud-like, or more so as a bubble. Her faults are too few to be recognizable, and it is impossible to have any feelings of dislike directed at her.
Do not be deceived by the incredible works of digital art, she does not use a tablet. That is all by mouse. There is a sensible drive for improvement in her work, that she means not to impress, but to surpass her own self. The poses of her work are stunning, and the attention to detail is one to be admired.
*In case you were wondering, I went in alphabetical order, thus removing any feelings of bias.
