Happy 14th birthday, dA!
First, I'll start off with explaining why I love these particular artworks!
I love this one because it's simple, yet beautiful. There aren't any bold colors, no extra fancy stuff. The pastels bring out a sense of calm, and the duck is, of course, adorable!
This one has deeper colors, but has a more mystical feeling to it. It looks so enchanting, and the water looks so enticing. I wish I could just jump into the picture, and be part of the magic.
I like this one because of the realism and traditional art. The artists captures the person's face perfectly, and even enhanced it, I think. It's a very elegant and graceful drawing to my eyes.
This one is absolutely STUNNING. I could stare at this picture for hours, and still find new details that I hadn't noticed before. The colors are beautiful, and the whole drawing reminds me of a stained-glass window. If I could get this as a stain-glass window, I definitely would!
Simple, yet lovely. I never wear or like jewelry, but this one really stood out to me. It looks so realistic, like a real flower petal! And it looks so satiny and soft, it's simply stunning. The chain compliments the petal very well.
I choose this one because of the lighting, primarily. The way the artist shaded this drawing gives it an enchanted and mystical feeling. All in all, I think it's a very pretty artwork. I also like the flowing hair, and the dress. It just looks so . . . elegant!
I LOVE rocks and gemstones. So I instantly was drawn to this necklace. The artist was very creative in using orange-y rocks for the tree, which makes it seem like an autumn tree. All the rocks are different, yet they compliment each other, and it creates a beautiful tree. The silver wire also compliments the artwork very well.
I have a big appreciation for pixel artists, and this one is one of my personal favorites. Simple colors, cute worm, and a book! An adorable little thing!
I ADORE tiny food charms. I love, love, love them, and I had to include one of them here! I chose this one because the sandwiches look so realistic. So much so, in fact, that I want to eat them! The details are stunning, from the holes in the bread to the texture of the peanut butter and jelly. The crust is colored just right, to make it look even more realistic.
I joined deviantART about three years now, and this is by far my favorite website. I love all the amazing artwork I find on here, the writing, and even the community. Congratulations, dA!
