since everybody’s doing it I figured I’d finally make a follow forever these things are super stressful though so pls don’t be mad if I missed u ilu I promise so anyway happy new year kids I hope 2015 is hella rad for everybody
loish (lois van baarle) has really wonderful colors and painting skills, her ideas are always really nice and original i think!! she’s been my inspiration since i was very young (one of her pieces is in an art book i had- and then years later i recognized her style online)
digitallyimpaired (osi) has also been an inspiration to me for a longass time. she has incredible art, especially considering that she’s about 17 (im pretty sure). shes fantastic with adding colors in a really incredible way that always gives me a sense of like ?? comfort ??? idk how to explain it really but i plan on buying more tshirts from her bcs i want that art on my person immediately
toastyhat (abigail) makes incredible paintings, and the only thing more incredible than the drawings themselves? the animation. toasty has some of the most fluid animation ive ever seen, and the characters move with such emotion !! its obvious she puts a lot of love into what she does
artfucker64 (mike) is the author of my favorite webcomic ( scarfs-comic ) and has a cartoony style. dont let that fool you though, because when he does post paintings/colored pictures? hes a frickin wizard. ive always adored his ability to add color that makes it look almost fractal
sadcatclub (maggie) doesnt post art very often, but when she does its really cute. her style is also very cartoony at times, and she puts a lot of work into her art. she also does traditional paintings which are so ornate and i love them to bits
iguanamouth (lauren) .,,,who doesnt know iguanamouth? shes one of the most popular (and fantastic) artists on tumblr. her art speaks for itself
f-premaur (f-pre) ’s style includes round eyes, crisp lines, and SO MUCH FCKIN CUTENESS every time i see her self portraits i want to cry because they are adorable. the colors are usually simplistic and the style i think is best described as “bubbly”
pheberart (phoebe) is someone i only recently discovered. her art has an incredibly lifelike look and feel to it. shes a digital painter and my goals are to be able to paint that kind of texture ESPECIALLY around the face and hair.
odraws (franco) has a style that alternates between extremely soft and incredibly sharp. hard lines come with hard painting, and the soft paintings are just as beautiful. their art always has this surreal, unreal effect that makes me wanna look at them forever,, they remind me of somewhere i cant quite place which gives me these really strange vibes and yknow ?? i like it a LOT (also theyre the artist of another one of my fav webcomics, ltarasco )
vickisigh (vicki) ‘s art is mainly made up of colorblocking and smooth gradients, and they usually have pretty textures over top of them. The pictures are super vibrant and have interesting shading that includes more basic shapes.
adlr00 ‘s paintings are lineless and seamless. their style can be described as round edges and paper craft, if that makes sense.
im kind of running out of steam but ill let you know if i tihink of any others
Accepted Artists for Volume 1 (artists please read note at bottom)
Finally! The list you’ve all been waiting for. I’ll be putting all the accepted artists below the cut (alphabetized, if you need help finding your username. It will likely be under your primary blog, since I am using the usernames you submitted under for this list to avoid confusion).
I received 210 entries, which is quite overwhelming! I wish I could accept all of you, but alas, I had to pick out the ones I think will go best in the zine.
Some of the reasons I chose certain pieces for the zine include:
interesting or new style / character interpretation / concept
featured an official outfit nobody else had drawn him in or an original outfit
had a detailed background / lots of details overall
overall good execution of idea to image
made me laugh out loud or smile
If your piece wasn’t accepted, it wasn’t anything personal! I might have received a lot of very similar entries, in some cases. I encourage you all to submit new entries for volume 2, because lots of your work was really great!
Without further ado, the list of accepted entrants is below the cut!
The first few people I ever followed on tumblr. I drew a lot of Normaler [but rarely posted all of them…just…some of them] because of these three amazing artists haha. And then I found other fandoms I was really into, but never forget your tumblr starter pack amirite— <3
