Traditional Art Favorites of 2014!

Mon Jan 26, 2015, 5:36 PM
  2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 • 2008 

A few weeks later than usual, but here I present my 7th annual traditional art feature of artworks submitted in the year of 2014!

I must admit, in the previous years I easily found twice, trice more artworks to feature and this year I have so few. I actually struggled to find a couple of dozen more so the collection is not so drastically smaller compared to previous years. Aside from other reasons,I'm guessing the main one is that a whole bunch of my favorite artists, artists I consider the best, are creating much less than they used to per year/they're not active on dA anymore/etc.

From all kinds of features I make, this one's the most difficult and time consuming one to make, as well as the one I'm never really satisfied with: how does one decide which artworks to include in this little collection when, just from a small part of the most amazing works dA is filled with you have the luck to find and see each year, you have at least a few hundreds of favs!


Each artwork was chosen by different combination of the following "criteria":
general impression • technique • quality • style • idea/concept • subject • incredible (photo/hyper) realism • pure awesomeness • composition • originality • complexity • other

1 deviant said Posting old stuff there for now, but will soon start posting new drawing WIPs as I do on my tumblr. So if you're interested, but you're not on/following me on tumblr/FB, you can follow me on Instagram instead if you have it.
11%
1 deviant said I did it only for 2 reasons: to possibly help me sell original drawings if I miraculously manage to become enough popular over there so there's people interested AND to discover and follow amazing Instagram artists who don't post their art elsewhere.
0%
No deviants said I might follow some of you back, but I only follow back art focused Instagram accounts. I'm only interested in good/fantastic art on Instagram and pretty much nothing else.
