There's this girl. And she can paint. Paint like nobody's business. Her name is weroni
She has such a beautiful, UNIQUE style of watercolours that is just as good or exceeds most of the bigger artists on dA. She has the art, and the years. The only thing she doesn't have are the views.

See, unlike bigger names such as PixieCold, weroni didn't sell out to the masses. She kept learning and improving, and arguably has emerged with a better product because of it.

She never overproduced her art. She kept it simple. And simple is the most beautiful style of all.

It's a crime against deviantart that this artist has less than 10,000 views over four years, and it's a crime we need to fix. We need to appreciate all of our artists, and help them get seen. The only way to do this is to click on the "more from deviantart" button every once in a while. It never hurt.

And now, for my feature presentation:

Flawless Dream by weroni Abrupt Clarity by weroni Hogwarts by weroni Turquoise by weroni

And much, much more.

This is art, my friends. This is what we need to fight for.
We're losing real artists every day on this site, because they feel abandoned. They feel like nobody loves them, and they feel like giving up.

When they see low-quality screenshots or poorly done bases get millions of views, who would blame them?

I'm not calling for an attack on beginner art- that'd be ridiculous and insensitive. Beginners are just as important as serious artists. But the problem is the lack of support for people like :iconweroni:

It doesn't have to be that way.
Send them a compliment or two every once and again. People like this deserve it.
You never know how much it means to them until you do.

This has been PrinceCiel with "AOTW".
Stay beautiful, and thanks for reading.

Problem with my choice of artist or choice of words? I don't care. I tell it like it is, and that's how it should be told. If you don't approve, I suggest you quit reading AOTW.

Your message of supporting artists by welcoming/commenting/critiqueing/and featuring them is one of my pet projects on dA.  Just as every plant needs watering, every artist on dA needs some recognition, and believe me, they appreciate it :
