The F Works

Welcome to the 9th in the series of The F Word. Recently I asked my watchers in a poll about their one favourite work by an artist in deviantART, with a reason as to why they chose it, even if it wasn't mandatory. I also have a few more wonderful works to feature as well along with some other information around dA including contests (including exciting contests happening for deviantART's 11th birthday)!
Enjoy :heart:

SilentKara suggested :

airborne. by CarolineZenker
by CarolineZenker
"I love everything in this work. The beautiful girl, her pretty hairstyle, the blurred background and of course the way she looks up with this tiny leaf on her head"

syko-girl suggested :

by inuhiro
"I just love his style~ x3"

litecrush suggested :

Emote Wars Reloaded by madb0y
by madb0y
"I really love madb0y's work.  He is a great pixel artist and animator. I'm always blow away when I see his deviations. XD "

Ionosphere-Negate suggested :

Dragons of Nu Abi - Dawn by seeker-of-the-skies
by seeker-of-the-skies
"I think his artwork has excellent potential. He already has a good sense of character and anatomy, that he both has developed on his own. He also has good science behind his work too, so that's a good plus for a story.
Oh, and he composes his own music too. I [kid] you not, look for him on Soundcloud."

FallenUmbrella suggested :

Recuento Onirico by giselaverdessi
by giselaverdessi
"It is very detailed and surreal :love: "

BDT466 suggested :

by wanwan
This piece is absolutely stunning, the colouring, DOF, lighting...everything is damn near perfect! I've been a fan of the artist for a long time now and this is just one of many. Seriously, if you enjoy being blow away by truly amazing art, go check out her gallery."

GrannyJae suggested :

THE TREE OF LIFE by Voodoomamma
by Voodoomamma
"Her piecees are bright, colorful, effervescent."

TiaVon suggested :

Meteor Shower by DismayedSense
by DismayedSense
"His photography always makes me wonder. And he's such a nice person as well. :love: "

evermorefire suggested :

Alphonse's Choice by fayrenpickpocket
by fayrenpickpocket
"This is a beautiful depiction of one of the most intense moments in the entire manga series."

DoubleVixen suggested :

shelly full view by Dreamkeeperfae
by Dreamkeeperfae
"Fae constantly makes gorgeous, detailed designs that make me want to try my hand in 3D artwork (if I didn't know it was a pain the butt). Take a look at her gallery! She deserves every watch."

Tajii-chan suggested :

Water Lily Fae by ShannonValentine
by ShannonValentine
" She is an incredible artist that deserves more love :heart:
I love this piece for its beautiful attention to details, in both the lineart and the colors! The fairy is absolutely beautiful, and I love all of the colors that she's mixed in!"

Elephantfreak suggested :

by aerinl
"The colors are just amazing~"

XxepIkzxX suggested :

LOVE: the Universal Language by little-frogy
by little-frogy
"I truly adore this deviation!
The concept and the effort put into this work is just phenomenal. :) "

So here are some of my favourites. Simply put, these are some of the amazing works I have seen, whether for their simplistic or humorous nature, sheer skills or some unexplainable motif :faint:

Hopefully, there is palatable work for everyone from some extensive categories!

Give love to these excellent deviations. Every single piece deserves exposure and shows effort, skills and talent!
Enjoy :heart:
