Welcome to The Next Big Thing, my feature of artists that I consider to be on the cusp of setting the DA community afire with their styles and visionary concepts. In terms of the criteria for selection, these artists will all have developed galleries where the strength of their artistic ability can be gleaned and where we see a commitment to developing their skills and showcasing their works to the benefit of the community on the whole. With the goal in mind of highlighting "the next big thing," I will for the most part only include artists with less than 2000 watchers; however, it cannot be stressed enough that this feature does not live and die by profile statistics, but operates with the purpose of getting you excited about these incredible talents and the paintings that capture their brilliance. Each journal will feature 4 artists with 3 paintings that have stimulated my interest and imagination. Please show them your appreciation and let's all celebrate excellence together.

I think this is a wonderful idea! You already do a really awesome job finding the artists who have slipped through the cracks of deviantART. This is just another way of getting those incredible artists the exposure they really deserve for their work, which in turn enriches the whole dA community. And these are really wonderful artists to kick off this series with!
Thank you so much, Athena! You've summed up perfectly the reasoning behind this feature, which is to let people know of the rich talent out there that they can be inspired by and learn from. It really does enrich the community as a whole, and further elevates DA as a space that is committed to nurturing all levels of art.
