Here are some of the many gems we found on the pages of deviantART…
Wavesheep’s linework manages to pack a lot into a small space. This piece is fan art for Trinity Blood, a series of Japanese light novels written by Sunao Yoshida and illustrated by Thores Shibamoto.

Every time Ariel Flores hears Jimi Hendrix’s All Along The Watchtower he sees images of silhouettes moving through the rain. He decided to create a piece inspired by this vision: And The Wind Began to Howl. It’s a starstudded, shadowy work framed by driving rain.
Beautifully lit and coloured, Greed is Izzy Medrano’s Magic: The Gathering-inspired piece. “It was interesting how easy it was to overly Color Dodge everything,” Izzy says. “There was a lot of push and pull trying to get the materials to work and feel magical. Yay for gold-based throat damage!”
