Yes, yes, we're all quite aware that DeviantArt has a reputation for harboring Artists with...much to be desired. But, let us not forget that there's an upside to DeviantArt, that there are actually good artists on there with fantastic, professional work. As such I'm making this thread for people to share/talk about artists from DA who really kick some serious ass.
I'll start by introducing you to a few of my favorite DA artists and some examples of their work.
A professional artist from Hong Kong who has worked on covers for DC Comics. Has an original character named "Pepper" that he uses when trying out new styles.
Hailing from South Africa, this Artist is a Freelance illustrator, character designer and concept artist. He also expressed support for Ron Paul despite not being American.
A professional Female French Artist with her own original comics series. Has a habit for drawing rather torrid love scenes.
Female Artist, United Kingdom. She's a big fan of Valve's games. Also did character concept art for APB: Reloaded.
