Awesome characters make awesome stories and this month's submissions are the ideal example. How about exploring some of the interesting designs? Maybe they will inspire you and help to invent your own character, which would be even more unique.
Onwards to the adventure!
by Star Collector by snuapril01
Don't let yourself be fooled by those sky blue eyes and soft smile - you have no idea why she is gathering stars. It is an interesting collection but now the skies are dark and cold. Or are they? snuapril01
used such a charming colour palette that I have to carefully rethink my dislike to pink because that colour isn't reserved only for little girls any more.
by Moon Blade by funkyalienlovers
At first I was sure it's a photo but after a close look you realize it's a carefully drawn character looking at you with shining eyes. I'm amazed of the amount of little details funkyalienlovers
put in the dress embroidery and the lightness of the cloth. It's such an enchanting design. And deadly as well.
by Shower by llamadorada
Usually when you think about faeries you see them floating in mid air or picking flowers. llamadorada
shows one in different scenery and her faerie looks as magical as other ones. Maybe even more thanks to the mysterious glowing effect on her wings which showers the whole work with golden light.
by Luthien in forest not far from Tol-in-Gaurh by PoAnna
It's important while designing a character to put him in the right setting. PoAnna
not only created a place filled with whispered secrets in the moonlight but also finished the whole artwork with a frame which gives an impression of a tale from the old times - an ideal surroundings for a Tolkien story.
by Guardian of the sea by YaelPardina
Can you hear the distant calling of a whale? It's song filled with unheard notes and sounds filled with mysteries. Have you thought that it's the guardian of the sea calling? Because YaelPardina
got that idea before you. It's amazing how much you can explore while designing a character which doesn't have to be a human and can hold even more secrets.
by Trading Card Dwarf Compendium - (c) Verge Studios by helgecbalzer
I'm amazed that these designs didn't get as much attention as they should! Having so much awesomeness in one go is a lot to take for sure. helgecbalzer
showed a pack of dwarfs from different professions and you can even guess a bit of their back-story. The wave of details and colour usage is so impressing. A truly inspiring set.
by Moon 2015 by wolfanita
I have to say that working on a piece once more sometimes may surprise you in a pleasant way. wolfanita
recoloured her work and got a mysterious dark spirit bearing the powers of the moon. Just look at the movement of those lines! It just waits to be put as a mosaic in a temple for the believers to admire.
by Grain griffin by FanOfTill
Ok! Maybe this joke FanOfTill
used is understandable for certain game players only but you can also look at it as a panel of a comic never released with vivid colouring, sharp edges and humour for those who read the whole thing. We really need more artworks with fantasy climate which don't take the subject too seriously. Especially if it should be fun.
There are only a few deviantions featured - check the group's collection to find much more. Your creativity stuns me
On a side note I would like to say that I'm trying to feature works that aren't popular yet and in my opinion they have hidden genius already
Let's be MAD!!
ABOUT FEATURES IN AvalonCommunity
In our group we want to promote your artworks as best as we can.
So I want to describe what kind of features we have here, and tell you about the new one.
Every week we display one work as "Featured Deviation of the Week". It can be any work submitted to our group, that is carefully chosen to be featured for a week.
The new thing will be our "Weekly Features" folder, where, for a time being, the most loved (by the group Founder
) works submitted during a week, will be displayed.
We have also "Features" folder. And there you can see the best, the most loved works ever submitted to our group.
I hope that all of this will help your creations to be even more loved around DA.
