Just more practice/experimentation.
I have been wanting to assemble a huge post of some of the amazing women artists out there, because it seems like too often they get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there, they are all amazing, and they all need more visibility and recognition. I encourage you to browse through and visit their websites, and please reblog and add more artists to the list! I know this is NOWHERE near comprehensive and that are tons more artists out there.
This list mostly covers mostly professional illustrators and scifi/fantasy artists. I know I’m missing out on a ton of talented people in comics, animation, fine art, and people who do primarily fan work, but I don’t know quite as much about those areas so they aren’t as well represented here; my apologies.
(The tags got cut off; I guess there’s a limit now? As such I wasn’t able to tag every single artist included.)
Click the “read more” to check out the art! Warning: This list is HUGE, and very image intensive!
I don’t normally reblog anything… but this time I will because imma pumpkin.
Fantastic work on all the pumpkins everyone! We’re overwhelmed with how many of you carved our characters.
The PuppyCat and Catbug pumpkins are done by Chelsie M. Paralyzed Pumpkin, Emotion Pumpkin Lord, Wankershim Pumpkin, Pumpkin Group (The last group was carved during the Season two, 24 hour live stream countdown on YouTube!)
There’s a pumpkin in that last group that’s pretty awful, but very interesting…
These are the best.
This week is just a doodle - I promise I’ll be back to long form stuff asap - this week, just ugh! I guess I thought this was really hilarious when I thought of it. Additionally - I realize that it’s called a hexagon - but this is funnier and almost accurate.
