Sketches from today at school while I wait to start my new job on Monday! Oooooooo~~
I have been wanting to assemble a huge post of some of the amazing women artists out there, because it seems like too often they get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there, they are all amazing, and they all need more visibility and recognition. I encourage you to browse through and visit their websites, and please reblog and add more artists to the list! I know this is NOWHERE near comprehensive and that are tons more artists out there.
This list mostly covers mostly professional illustrators and scifi/fantasy artists. I know I’m missing out on a ton of talented people in comics, animation, fine art, and people who do primarily fan work, but I don’t know quite as much about those areas so they aren’t as well represented here; my apologies.
(The tags got cut off; I guess there’s a limit now? As such I wasn’t able to tag every single artist included.)
EDIT: Added more artists!
Click the “read more” to check out the art! Warning: This list is HUGE, and very image intensive!
this is still pretty important
Kua’s mind is ever expanding. She dreams up galaxies… then turns around and tries to eat your fingers.
Painted in Corel Painter, oil pastel tool and airbrushes for the background.
The background was referenced from NASA’s Antennae Galaxies photo.
i have no regrets
I… There are no words. In silence I weep as my very soul is stirred by this artwork.
I’m thinking of colouring this soon! It’ll be interesting to see how it turns out after the practice I’ve been getting working on the pokemon!
I honestly thought for a moment I was being asked to do some node-based programming and take Mental Ray for a spin. ;___;
WE’LL SEE HOW THIS GOES.
