I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but thanks to a near-terminal case of Laziness, I haven't been able to get it off the ground. ...UNTIL NOW
Introducing FEATURE PRESENTATION, a monthly special wherein I spotlight some of my favorite artists on dA, then proceed to fangirl unabashedly. The criteria for selection are as follows: 1) the artist must have less than 200,000 pageviews, and 2) they must be fucking awesome (duh). Let's get this underway, shall we?
This month's featured artist is Patrícia Aroeira, AKA clover-teapot, AKA this owl icon . Patrícia hails from Brazil and earns much of her income from commissions, which is lucky for us because her work is gorgeous. She's a complete sweetheart who always seems to have a kind word to offer, and her luscious, creamy coloring style is good enough to eat
Here are some personal favorites from her gallery:
I adore the details clover-teapot puts into her pictures. She has a real knack for drawing staves, and this character's hair-piece, the heraldry-like border, and the blue backlighting are all fantastic additions.
Just look at that eyeshadow. Look at the wicked gleam in her eye. What a cheeky little minx
This is such a fun piece ^_^ I love his mischievous attitude
What's in the bottle, I wonder? Is she here to hurt, or to help? So mysteriousss...ugh I just love it
I want her dress so badlyyyyy D: The magic powers would be nice too Like I said earlier, A+ staff design.
So yes. Check out 's gallery. Be absorbed. Be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
