Sokoltis by goodforn0thing

Random Favourites



As deviantART celebrates another birthday (wow, 14 already) I guess I should reflect back on a few works I have made or been inspired by with inspiration and collaboration from fellow artists and colleagues here.

I guess I started working on art in grade school from about 7-14 years old, and then I started to get into more digital and mixed media as I entered high school.  I remember when Photoshop 7 was released and everyone (including myself) thought it was the best thing since sliced bread...I still do regard it as a master version in some ways.  Hell I even still have a couple Photoshop 5 books lying around somewhere. 

Just Another Day by Xecutioner379

^^^This was a fun piece I made back some years ago with Ron1649, I was really into and still am into space art (and actual astronomy).  I guess I just really like the idea of space being the last frontier for exploration, but the sheer size and vastness of it makes it seem like a herculean task.

Speed by Xecutioner379

^^^This was a very rewarding exercise in more abstract and line art.  Another one of my favorite formats is mixed media abstract work, and for whatever reason I am still really captured by it.

Juicy by Xecutioner379

Gran Patron by Xecutioner379

^^^Both these pieces were made as product advertisements and practice in combining my own style of fine art with practical commercial use.  I have since decided that I am better suited to creating my own art for art's sake rather than mixing business with pleasure, but I wanted to prove to myself that I can still combine the two when need be.  Plus, Gran Patron was my first daily deviation, which was highly unexpected.

Evensong by alyn

^^^This piece was made by a fellow deviant alyn that really spoke to me as a really inspiring and well made work of art.  He's got wonderful talent, but for some reason I still think this piece is understated and more classic in some ways, and often overlooked in his flashy but equally impressive gallery.

Minerva by soad2K

^^^One last piece I find is by truly one of my favorite deviants, soad2K. His work in all abstract forms is truly inspiring and he is really a modern contemporary master whos works should be considered as an investment.

I guess that's my mini showcase, I really wish I had much more time to create but as life goes on, I am sure I will find and settle into something.  Until then, I will keep on lurking and enjoying the art of so many others.

Happy 14th dA!
