Where do I begin to express my fondness and admiration for this artist? It started with a t-shirt design called Beauty before Death on Threadless. Rightfully so, the first image in this sequence is Beauty before Death, taken from her DeviantArt page. It was actually the first t-shirt I bought from that website and funny enough I had managed to lose it and then bought it again - that is just how much I love that design. Honest to goodness, that is now my favorite t-shirt. T-shirt fandom aside, I had decided I wanted to check her artist page out for myself and see what other gems she has in store. I was in for a big surprise. Staring flabbergasted at her digital paintings for minutes on end, as I faced the difficult task of picking and choosing the ‘best’ ones to feature here. Her use of color and her brushstrokes are a thing of legends. She finds inspiration in television and films and a special tip of the hat goes to her rendition of BBC’s Sherlock Holmes characters. Her Drive movie speed painting is also particularly powerful, along with her portrait of Magneto (aka Michael Fassbender) from X-Men Origins. She also does portraits on commission and I’ve allowed myself to include some of them here, because I simply had to. She pays particular attention to the gaze and that makes her framings quite flawless. A final interesting fact is that she’s been a Deviant Artist for 3 years and has posted artworks quite regularly. As a result, there’s quite a hefty collection of works that are living proof of her growth and rise to artistic maturity.
I ended up choosing about 25 of them to feature here, and I honestly would have featured all of them but that would have been incredibly selfish of me as you’ve got to go see for yourself and support her in any way that you can. Apart from purchasing her t-shirt designs, this is is my way. Although I couldn’t find a personal website, please check her DeviantArt page. You will not regret it. In the meantime, see if you could recognize some other famous characters from Television and Film. I’m not namedropping but Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, A Game of Thrones, Inception and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo are some of them..
