Welcome to this Months DeviantART Artist Community Showcase.
Much time was spent putting this list of artists together, and I hope it's enjoyed and appreciated by many.  The goal with these features is to hopefully link more members of DeviantART together,  and also to give a little back to the many Artists whose works I love, enjoy and draw much inspiration from. 

As before, if you enjoy the works of any of the showcased Artists, I'd ask that you comment on their work about what it is you love, and give support by adding the pieces you enjoy to your favorites.  Be sure to set to /follow if you'd like to see more artworks from the Artists in the future.  Thank you to all who've read my features in the past and especially to the ones who continue to do so.
Thank you!  Enjoy!

Pixel Art

:iconflatworms: Flatworms

Flatworms is an amazing Artist whose pixel works I feel are more like miniature pixelated paintings in their essence of thought, composition and style.  His artworks have very unique qualities to them and often Flatworms utilizes classic video-game system palette's which gives some of his work a touch of nostalgic feel.  Only recently a new Deviant upon the site and though he has but a few awesome pieces submitted, I'm positive they will continue growing in numbers.  Do take a moment to check out Flatworms' art and please leave a comment on the pieces you enjoy, +fav and add to your watchlist if you'd like to help support and keep updated with his future creations!

:iconsheribonbon: sheribonbon

Magda, or Madeline is an Artist whose creations spans across many wonderful styles and medium types.  Certainly not restricted to just Pixel Art, though it's what first introduced me to her beautiful artworks.   Her pieces are truly vibrant in color and practically always adorable and wonderful.  ;D  Sheri also has a couple more accounts upon the site which feature adoptables, photography, and also a previous account packed with just as much awesome goodies (which you can find from her profile), So there's a ton of artwork to get lost in!  If you enjoy Sheribonbon's lovely works of art, please do take a moment to comment on the pieces you like and don't forget to +fav and follow along for constant updates!

:iconkradakor: Kradakor

Mário Santos is an amazing Artist from Brazil as well a starting up indie game developer.  His works are not only of amazing quality but also highly creative and thought out, and the color palettes used within each piece are always beautifully selected.
  Kradakor's artworks are not strictly inspired from great oldschool video games, but also from literature and other awesome sources.  You can also find more of his work upon PixelJoint.com under the name Emperor_Pixel which I definitely recommend checking out cause there are more unique works there as well!  Please take a moment to enjoy some of this artist's creations and leave a comment +fav & +follow if you love his artwork!

Traditional Art, Drawings, Paintings, Mixed-Media

:iconashedenica: ashedenica

Anna is a truly wonderful Artist from Russia who creates fantastically beautiful works with an assortment of traditional mediums to make drawings, inks, digital illustrations, as well acrylic and oil paintings.  Like many, Anna very much loves to create art; though a thing that separates her from many is her true dedication to her work and ability + passion to keep at it with an awesome pace.  Ashedenica is only recently a member of deviantART, though already has such a vast collection of works shared within the community and most honestly every single piece is a true work of art that shines brilliantly as such!  I'd appreciate greatly for the ones interested in such types of work, to spend some time looking through her gallery because I can promise that you'll find many works to fall in love with.  And when you do, please be sure to comment & add to your favorites.  Don't forget to follow, Anna's work is truly worth support and keeping up-to-date with!

:icontjatkings: tjatkings

Tyson Atkings is an incredible Visual Artist from Canada who creates a vast and amazing collection of artworks.  From Drawings to Paintings, Sculptures, Photography and Writings +, tjatkings is definitely a person of many brilliant talents and awesome creativity.
His works emit true explosions of vibrant color and tones with much thought and attention towards each piece in all cases.  His art often forces you rethink the way we see not only shapes, form and shades within the world, but also reveals how beautiful and intriguing personal expression within art can be.  Tyson has an ocean of works to get lost in, inspired by, and in love with so please take some time to view his gallery.  Remember to comment on pieces you enjoy, +fav and +follow to help show your support towards his works and future creations.

:iconkaylamahoney: KaylaMahoney

Kayla Mahoney is a wonderful Artist from Canada who most often creates works very passionately and in-depth with thought and intention behind them.  Her art mostly reflects and drives off of emotions which bring forth tons of life into her artworks, though she also creates many gorgeous illustrations that are easy-going, fun & simple yet still just as thoughtful and detailed.

Kayla's relatively new as a member to deviantART yet already has a beautiful collection of works submitted to the site, which are all deserving of looking through.  Please take a moment to browse through her artworks when you have time, and be sure to comment on the pieces that you love and +fav.  I definitely recommend following her work as well!

:iconretr8bit: Retr8bit

Matthew Kibble (originally Metru-guy on DA) is an Artist who resides within the United Kingdom and is one of the most awesome crafters I've come across on DeviantART.  Only recently had I stumbled across his work, though fell in love with his creations instantly.  Lately his specialty has been in creating epic bead crafts, though he's certainly an amazing Illustrator and Pixel Artist as well.  Retr8bit's makes some of the coolest bead works out there, and perhaps the best Portal themed crafts ever.  Definitely take a moment to look through his collection of works, and be sure to check out his previous account for even more art.

:iconbthomas64: BThomas64

Brandon Thomas is an incredibly talented Artist of many trades who lives in Canada.  I first was introduced to Brandon's work from his sculptures and was greatly impressed by the level of detail within his creations as well the beautiful coloring work that he gave just as much attention towards.  Though I'm featuring mostly his Sculpting work, he's also an amazing freehand Artist and Illustrator both in his traditional and digital works.  Please take a moment to browse through his works because I know you'll love a lot of it!

Maeva & Thomas, Camo & Sushi, are two excellent and diverse Artists within France that hold much respect and admiration from me.  Their works range from drawings to photography, as well into paintings and cosplay armor and costume creation.  The amount of detail within their work whether it's purely a sketch by hand, colored illustration, or digital drawing, or water color is truly impressive and beautiful.  Their use of sharp lines, bold angles and elegant curves blend in perfect synergy with one another throughout each piece.  Camo and Sushi are fairly new to DeviantART and I'm greatly honored to be able and share their work with some of you.  Hopefully you all appreciate their talents and art as much as I do, and if so, please let them know by commenting on the works you love, adding to your favorites and setting to follow!  I also recommend following them on Facebook because they have gorgeous works there that aren't yet upon DA.

Jennifer Duong aka MechanicalBunnies (originally bw-inc on DA) is an amazingly talented Artist from Vancouver, Canada.    Her abilities are truly incredible and within many aspects of her art the range of beauty, style and theme expressed throughout are simply genius.  Jennifer's work is almost dream like in it's elegance and her use of detail mixed with vibrant colors and selective tones make so many of her works absolutely gorgeous.  Many may already be familiar with her art, though if not, you're certainly going to love and find inspiration within Jen's creations.  Please do comment on the works you enjoy of hers, and remember to +fav and set to follow!

Paul Apal'kin is an excellent Photographer from the Ukraine who has some of the most impressive works I've seen.  The beauty and simplicity of his photographs are outstanding, and many of his works are very bold feeling in composition yet so soft in elegance.  Paul's artwork is truly inspiring and gives much justice to the natural essence and beauty of his subject material.  Many may already be familiar with his work, though if not I strongly recommend browsing through his gallery of art.  Please be sure to comment on the works you enjoy, +fav and set to follow.

I showed to Camo the description you made of our creations. He is really touched and he asks me to get this message to you :

That's incredibly kind and wonderful of him!  Honestly that means a lot to me, especially coming from you both who I love your works so much!  I'll really have to think about something, though also would love for it to be a character/subject that you both enjoy as well for it to come even more so from the heart.  :)  Thank you Sushi!  ;D  And please tell Camo the same!  You both are great people and I'll certainly have to take you two up on a piece of art.  ;)

So how do you choose the artists being showcased?
nintentofu's avatar
Good afternoon devixenrox.

The Artists that I choose for the showcases each month are ones who I've either fortunately stumbled across while browsing brand-new art upon the site's frontpage, or have met through similar works and truly been inspired by.  Also at rare times though from Artists who've commented on my work, then I happen to fall in love with their art from visiting their page and getting lost within their galleries.  :)

Hi Jennifer!  You're very much welcome though really the pleasure is mine!  :)  You have tons of amazing work and it's hard to even slightly give justice within a small blurb and few thumbnails to how great your pieces really are.  Thank you and glad you don't mind me sharing your works with others across the site by the way.

And of course people like your work!  :love:
