I'll just start off this journal by apolagizing for my lack of activity on here (or on Facebook/tumblr). I've been in an art drought for a couple of weeks, back and forth, and I've also been working on a double meme that I've been procrastinating on like there's no tomorrow (ehehe, procrastination joke). But soon I'll be done with the meme (which is gonna be awesome by the way) and I can go back to illustrating! Especially Dark Planet Saga stuff, which I have been writing on a lot to refine the story foundation of in order to work on the details of the world.
But without further ado, here's the features of the month!
(all can be found in my favorites)
This stellar piece of futuristic art by Tsabo6
tickles my science-fiction taste buds all at once! And boy does it feel good. The great futuristic atmosphere feels alien but still familiar with all the gadgets and posters strewn about this lady's room.
I almost believe this one speaks for itself, really, but I'll go ahead and just praise how emotional polkapills
made this beautiful painting. I absolutely adore when an artist integrate crayon-ish brushes and really take advantage of them to the fullest. The relationship between these two characters from How To Train Your Dragon 2 has never been so beautiful.
I was really impressed by this one because of the way the artist drew the background - more specically the tree trunks and the leaves! Their lovely cartoonish shapes and detailed shading makes them almost pop out of the screen! The fact that there is a cute girl hiding from the most adorable dinosaur ever definitely helps too!
You will have to full view this one, as it is best experienced in full view! I already knew that mr finalmix13
was an excellent character artist, but with this hysterical comic he really showed me how alive he can make the characters feel! Definitely go check out his stuff!
definitely is in a league on his own. His painting style is not only absolutely stunning but also very recognizable. Using very muted colors he gives mysterious and eerie scenes like this a whole new layer of immersion and realism. The light from outside bouncing off of the sheets is also the most gorgeous lighting of the month by far.
Wow, just wow. This is by far my favorite deviation of this month. I am just a sucker for beautiful paintings like this. The evening light on the shore is just... Mwah. I can't really say much more!
Until next month...!

Okay, so I thought I would change up the way I do feature journals. Instead of doing them all randomly I will make a journal at the end of every month where I list the most impressive deviations from my favorite's list and give a quick description as to why they were chosen. I'll base the features on how impressed or inspired I were by them.
Oh by the way - The features doesn't have to be submitted during last month - I only count the ones I added to my fav list during mentioned month!
Also, before we get started, I have started up a tumblr (yeah I'm sorry), so if you're on there, follow me, hash tag stuff and all that!
Now that we have that out of the way, lets do this!
This insanely impressive landscape by Balaskas has to be seen in full view, there is no other way.
Go full view it and you'll witness the perfect balance he put into the pictu
