About These Features
We here at TA literally get hundreds to thousands of submissions of quality artwork every month, but some of our art submitted we showcase in our weekly journal because it's technically beautiful, interesting or shows some really unique or thoughtful aspect. We've been doing this for a long time now, and one day we just thought- wow, why not share these with ALL of dA? So, here they are.....

What I take in (that is to say what influences me) has more to do with literature and music than visual art, though if one were adamant, I would say that anything in the Baroque era has influenced me. The Baroque artists’ use of contrast and the solidity of their subjects has become a striving point in my art; I render my subjects with a mass of shadows to create that effect. Another style that has inspired me, though in a more subtle way, is Celtic art, particularly the precision of its lines and the blend of complexity and consistency to produce harmony.|
I work in almost every well-known medium and try new ones as soon as I can. As for themes, almost everything I create can be categorized in a certain period of history, the various animals, subcultures, ethnic groups, and countries I use as subjects all have a strong memory of their history. To me it is essential as an artist to be proud of my history and be knowledgeable about others’ history so that I may portray them with their strongest traits.
