Hello all, this is me, shamelessly taking advantage of the Daily Deviation I received just now to plug both myself and some other artists that I believe truly deserve more recognition than they have at the moment.
Firstly, I have to thank very much. He's not only an incredibly talented artist but he also passed along my information after reading about my job issues and landed me an interview with a games company. Just an all-around good guy from what I know of him so far.
Ok, here we go: here are three artists' works on DeviantArt that I believe are particularly overlooked, and each of them has under 50k pageviews. Let's hope this can change that a bit.
First up is skullsquidattack.
He has a particularly nuanced grasp of good shape and color design, but can also paint like a mother - hah! I am a major fan of his digital inking.
Second we get fluxen.
I love the subtlety in the value structures that fluxen uses - he also has a lot of those beautiful warm shadows that are hard to capture. I am in awe of the edge control and color uses.
And thirdly there is Miles-Johnston.
Not only is Miles one of the best young painters of the time, but he also has a solid grasp of design and color. The kicker? This guy is only 19 years old! He's going to be even more of an absolute CRUSHER than he is right now.
