Introducing sandara

:iconsandara:

Hi, I’m Sandara and I’ve been on DeviantArt for an amazing 13 years. It’s been such a huge part of my life and has seen me through dating, marriage and having my first child, as well as through my career as a professional artist. I check up on DA almost every day and the community here is the best! There isn’t a more supportive, inspiring, creative and fun community anywhere else. Through all these years on DA, I have gotten to know so many awesome artists and made a lot of friends.

As for my art, I love drawing fantasy creatures, especially dragons and griffins. My tools of the trade are Photoshop and my Wacom tablet.

I enjoys painting the quiet every day little scenes in a fantasy life, as well as the big bombastic pieces.

The amazing work from talented artists and encouraging words from my watchers on DA motivates me to push myself to create better art. To my supportive watchers, though I don’t answer every message, please rest assured that I read them all!

Thank you DA. :)

Deviousness Award Winner

sandara has been a huge part of the DeviantArt community for 13 years. An immensely talented fantasy artist, sandara’s digital paintings have made a huge impression on artists all across DeviantArt. Diving through her gallery, you can see over a decade of artistic progression in the hundreds of deviations she’s shared with her watchers. In addition to digital paintings, sandara has made a commitment to helping artists across DeviantArt grow and thrive — from her helpful tutorials to the supportive and instructive comments she leaves for deviants. It is for all of these reasons that we are proud to award sandara with the Deviousness Award for June 2017.

Showing some love

Her infectious attitude and positive vibe for the community and towards her watchers is humbling and admirable! Her artwork is simply inspiring, dreamy and breathtaking! Well deserved and congratulations sandara

sandara is one of the best digital artists here on DA, I love the fantastical style she uses in every artwork. She is a great example of the quote “Practice makes perfection.” Thanks to her hard work and practice we can enjoy visiting her awesome and unique gallery! Congrats on your Deviousness Award sandara and Keep up the good work”

sandara is one of those artists I can’t get enough of!!! Her amazing works keep me staring at her beautiful gallery for really long moments, and it’s always a JOY finding one of her works in my inbox!!! What I love about her the most, is the fact that not only her works are magnificent, but also the fact that you can feel her desire to give back to the community when you take a look at her work and find all her tutorials!!! Her sweet dedication to the world of ART is palpable from all the angles of her Internet presence, and it’s for all of these reasons that she’s one of my favorite artists!!! She inspires me, and makes me want to work on the techniques she teaches!!! She instills that “artistic curiosity” in me, and I couldn’t be any happier today, seeing her receive this lovely recognition!!! Congratulations to our dearest sandara!!!

sandara’s unique style and the way she weaves light into her brush strokes has inspired me for years. Looking through her gallery is like being whisked away to far off worlds and I love the designs for her fantasy creatures. sandara is an incredible community member and her artwork and positive spirit have touched millions. Congratulations!”

sandara creates many versions of my favorite fantasy beast; Dragons! Whether she is drawing and painting green, purple, blue or even black dragons, they are a vision to behold; whether they are menacing, fierce or protective, the Dragons are captivating and incredibly breathtaking. sandara doesn’t just create Dragons, however, her fantasy, magical and fanart can be easily be drooled over as well! To add to her talent, she creates beautiful artisan crafts including pendants that are intricately created, as well as fun and unique buttons, and even sculptures. As a professional, sandara has perfected her craft, and it shows with her unique eye and gift for creating visions of digital art and artisan crafts. An avid commenter, sandara keeps abreast of the DeviantART Community and is active in groups. Even though she receives literally thousands of comments, she is sure to reply in keeping with the community spirit. She has an incredible following here on DeviantART, and it is easy to see why once her gallery is viewed. Oh, and did I mention Dragons? I did? Well then, go check all those awesome Deviations out!”

sandara’s work has always been such a feat to me. When I signed up about 9 years ago, she had recently posted her first Hades and Persephone work. That was the first drawing that made me watch her, and seeing her grow over these years with her fantastic use of form, lighting, and shadows was inspiring. Even with that level of skill, sandara maintains such a chill attitude. I see her responding and thanking people who comment on her front page, thank them for advice, and it really shows she appreciates all the love her art gets. I honestly consider her a master painter of this age because of how much understanding and technique she has. Just going through her gallery feels like playing a video game, or seeing a movie with all these fantastic scenes and creative creatures. I’m honored to have included a statement, and sandara will continue to be one of the artists that keeps me going. Congratulations on receiving the award! You truly deserve it!”

sandara’s passion for art is big enough to give plenty of room to dragons and magical creatures, that breathe and live in perfect composition harmony. What I love about sandara is that her images tell stories, that give life to incredible protagonists and intrigue the viewer. I’m proud to be following this magnificent artist and you should follow her too!”


Congratulations to sandara!
