Anthro Artists - The MUST SEE list (Done)

The Concept
[Star!] Two weeks ago, I asked you to help me choose the most awesome Anthro Artist sharing their amazing art with us here in our beloved deviantART. This was not a contest, but an unusual way to let us all find some great artists we may be missing in our devwatch list. Many people gave me their votes, and around 300 Anthro Artists were mentioned in fact.
[Star!] So, a lot of deviants chose their ten favorite anthro artists uploading their pics here in deviantART. After two weeks, I got all the "votes" and created a list with the ones mentioned the most, to then set a special kind of feature for them all and share it later with you today. It doesn't pretend to be the "Top Ten" list, neither to score or rate the popularity of those artists, but to see what the Anthro Community (or, at least, the deviants replying to my request) feels you shoul

Conceptualising - First Article
Before I begin I would like to say that this is my thought process and ways of conceptualising images and ideas. You do not have to follow everything I say as these are guidelines to help you along the way and many other artists will have different ways and ideologies. With more experience concepts are easier to execute.


Well basically it's about an idea(s), thought(s) or feeling(s). Resolving or portraying them from your creative mind as best as you can make it your concept. A

(Author Unknown)
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old
Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa,
and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they
were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the
family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform
the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would
be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt
as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's
family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for
the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on.
Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any
difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a whil

I've been busy over the last year cultivating my art, doing conventions and shows, and creating commissioned work. The road has been long and winding but never boring. You can now find my work on my own site and a variety of other gallery sites: · Tumblr · Twitter · Weasyl · Facebook

I will continue uploading pieces now and then to this gallery but am most active and responsive elsewhere. Future journals will appear on my site's blog rather than here as well.

Commissions continue to be available - please contact me directly if there's something I can do for you. If not, I hope you enjoy the wide world of bugs I've fallen in love with and drawn much inspiration from. Thank you, those that remain and those that find this page in the time to come, for the attention and support. I'll see you around. Be well, safe, and excellent to each other.

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
