HurricaneIslandheart has started a donation pool!
33 / 10,000
I've set up a Donation Pool to help support artists and groups I love. I've set 10,000 as an initial goal, and if this does well, I will set up a larger pool in the future.

Anyone who donates 100 or more Points will receive a Donation Feature for one week. A donation of 500 or more Points will net you a Donation Feature for one month.

I am not currently taking any new commissions - points-based or otherwise. When I re-open commissions in the future, a limited number of them will be points-based, but they will be the points equivalent of the USD ($) cost.

Thanks! :heart:

You must be logged in to donate.

dAhub Part II

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 11, 2015, 8:05 PM

And now for Part II of the dAhub features! (If you missed Part I and have no idea what I'm talking about, you can find it here.)

:iconmaximko: Maximko's portraits and pinups have a soft, light quality that contrasts wonderfully with his earlier, darker and edgier works. Hyper-realism is becoming increasingly popular, and his take gives it a softer, gentler edge than some artists. As a bonus, he posts the progress pages for other artists to see how his works develop.

:iconverceline: VeRCeline is another animal/anthro artist I would have never discovered without dAhub. The focused use of light, saturated color, and attention to detail in their art makes it pop in an eye-startling matter and at the same time draws the viewer in to examine each piece more closely. This gallery is a true treat to browse through.

:iconringoyan: I was completely floored by the level of cute in RingoYan's unique style of chibis. I watch a lot of chibi artists these days, but this gallery really jumped out at me as something special. The abbreviated detail and emphasis on the heads is reminiscent of Funko POP! figures, yet has detailed enough eyes and clothes to still read as bold, attractive figures. If you're a fan of chibis, this is a gallery to see.

:iconsallynyan: At first glance, I thought Sallynyan was just another generic anime artist, but some instinct (and probably the super-adorable avatar) made me stop and take a closer look at her gallery. I am so glad I did, because I would have been kicking myself if I had missed out! Sallynyan has incredible range, from simple, single-character chibi pictures to fully-detailed illustrations, and every single one of them is a joy of soft, bright color, smooth line, and small but important detail. This gallery is a must-see for anyone who aspires to be an anime-style artist.

:icondamaimikaz: There is an airy, painterly quality to DamaiMikaz's work that is easy to overlook if you're just scrolling but creates a comfortable, easy atmosphere when you stop and look at her gallery. The expressive, mood-filled art makes careful use of color to enhance the feel of each image and creates an emotional journey through the gallery. As an added bonus, she also includes sketchdumps and other "practice" works to show consistent work and development over time, which encourages other developing artists.

:iconperlamarina: Pairing a fantastic skill in illustrating folklore/mythology with a mastery of portraiture has allowed PerlaMarina to create a simply gorgeous gallery of art. A special treat in her gallery is the "twisted fairytales" section, full of illustrations that create a different twist on well-known stories and bring out a level of fear the Brothers Grimm could only have hoped for. Everyone, everyone, needs to see this gallery.

That's the second set of six! However, before I go, I want to throw in a bonus feature: 

:iconquelchii: I found Quelchii's gallery via a click-through, rather than directly from dAhub. Now, my particular love for a certain Norse god aside, I watched Quelchii for her exquisite use of traditional media to create rich portraits of pop culture figures. Despite being referenced directly from existing images, each portrait still retains a sense of her own aesthetics and reflects a level of technical skill that is not as emphasized today as it has been in the past. If you're a fan of traditional media and pop culture, this gallery is worth a look. :heart:

Inktober 04 - Becky by HurricaneIslandheart
Inktober 04 - Becky

Still fucking stuff up, and the shit pen is, in fact, a shit pen (I dug out an older brush pen of the same size to compare the quality on this piece), but I’m finally getting into the swing again.

Today’s art is a portrait of Becky from Dumbing of Age by David Willis. (Read it. LIEKNAOYESTERDAY. ) It’s beyond stupid that I didn’t draw her sooner, since she’s the reason I was able to be rad enough to get my undercut, after I saw how rad her’s is.
