This is a list of recommendations made by Tropers for Website/DeviantArt. Feel free to recommend your favorite art/artist here, but please follow the preferred template found below.

Bear in mind that recommendations are subjective, so if you want to question or discuss any given recommendation you should do so on the appropriate discussion page. If you want people to view the art/artist you're recommending, you should put some effort into writing the description. Sell us the art, but don't inflate it; we're striving for some quality art here, so if you have difficulties with making it look interesting, maybe it wasn't that good in the first place.

In addition, you will notice that the tropers have signed their recommendations. Somebody has to vouch for them, so if a given recommendation isn't backed up by anybody, it will be zapped. After a few samples, you will be able to note the interests of the tropers recommending them, and judge whether you might be also interested in a certain pic.

Reviews of art/artist are encouraged, but if you choose to write one, please make it substantive, and give specific details about what you liked/disliked about it. If you want to give a art/artist a thumbs-up without writing a full review, you can add your troper handle to the Recommended by line.

Below is the required format for a recommendation. If you're making a new page, or adding to an existing one, copy that text into the page.

[[folder:Individual works]]
''[[ Deviants Of Art]]''
* Created/recommended by: Tropers/KingGhost
* A comic depicting various mediums and concepts, most of which internet-based. currently early in the story, the comic tells the story of EB-the-Gamer, who along with other deviant artists get brought into the internet's strange world by a mysterious force. Planned to feature other internet personalities, artists and their characters, and so on; the comic is admittedly a tad crude in art style and dialog. now has its own [[Webcomic/DeviantsOfArt page]]

''[[ The Simpsonzu]]''
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{Korodzik}}
* Description: Cast of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' reinterpreted in an {{Animesque}} style.
* Comments: This is one of the most popular works on [=DeviantART=], and it shows why. An interesting alternate look at the characters. -- Tropers/{{Korodzik}}

''[[ A Child's Dance Escapes Time]]''
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{sevgili}}
* Description: A child dancing

''[[ window]]''
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{Nothingtoseehere}}, Tropers/{{fawn}}
* Description: A view into a garden.

[[ green]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}
* Description: Peacocks in a marsh.
* Comments: This might just be one of the most intricately detailed things I've ever seen. It's hard to image how long it took him to make it. It is one of my all time favorite images. (I'd say most favorite, but that is grammatically incorrect.)

[[ Breakthrough Eagle]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}
* Description: Epic image of a bald eagle tearing through fabric.

[[ the great bipartisan]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}
* Description: A giant, two headed dragon. The eagle is a nice touch that adds a sense of scale.

[[ Fight for Life]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}
* Description: Dragons battle to the death in the midst of a storm. What's not to like about that?

[[ The Curse]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}
* Description: Big Badass battle scarred wolf and a raven framed by a full moon.

[[ Rebirth Flame]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}

[[ Purple Judgement]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}
* Description: Barney meets Franchise/SilentHill.

''[[ Night Hunters]]''
* Recommended by: Megadriver
* Description: A series of seven books (work in progress) that the Author himself describes as a cross between ''Series/{{Angel}}'' and ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', but it is not fan fiction!
* Comments: I've read what the Author has put up on the site and managed to contact him directly. He let me see a few previews of his next books and while the series is still in its infancy on the site, I can say that he really has a good arc that spans the entire series and has even hinted a spin off series that might be even larger than the original.

[[ The Pain Inside]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{Utahann}}
* Description: An inspiring work to remind those who may be thinking of suicide that they are not alone
* As someone who oftentimes suffers from depression I find this beautiful as well as it falling under HeartwarmingMoment. Even if you just had a bad day, please give it a look.

[[ Phobs]]
* Recommended by: overcast, Preda, seymour, everyone who knows her
* Description: Basically... Phobs is a '''''legend'''''. One of the most celebrated, inspiring and imitated artists on the site, though not always the most visible, by virtue of her being TheQuietOne.

Draws heavy inspiration from history and Eastern artwork, fashion and architecture. Has an infrequently-updated webcomic about the [[ childhood of Temujin]], who you might know better as Genghis Khan.

* Notable works: [[ Knite]], [[ 1000 Words]], [[ Project WE: Canon in D Major]].
* ''Comments:'' An exceptionally talented painter, both digital and traditional, does all sorts of different genres as well as highly popular flash comics. Is currently (as of November 2012) working on another project called ''Fisheye Placebo''. Known for her incredibly effective cyber-activism on current issues such as global warming, animal cruelty, pollution, censorship and family drama. But it's [[ not]] [[ all]] [[ serious!]] Highly, '''''highly''''' recommended.

[[ ForestHymn]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{fawn}}
* ''Comments:'' ForestHymn stands out for being a talented Christian artist in a place with few Christian artists, and the majority of those few demonstrating SturgeonsLaw. Somewhat of a warning: She preaches though her art and in the comments, this does not bother me but I can see how it could some people.
* Notable works and galleries: [[ The Keeper-Speedpaint]], [[ My Hiding Place]][[ OT Prophecy - 3]] [[ Behold - I Come Quickly]]

[[ WhiteFoxCub]]

He has also written journal entries for his RA characters on his account. The first chapter of his unreleased, illustrated science fiction novel, ''Chronoscape'', is available there.
* ''Comments:'' His digital art and photography is surreal, grim but with an ethereal, breathtaking beauty. The art of ''Webcomic/RomanticallyApocalyptic'' is a seamless blend of photographs and drawings, making for an absurdly real-looking and beautiful webcomic.

[[ justeline]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/HotelCalifornia
* Notable works: [[ The Dark Traveler II]], [[ Underneath the Veil]], [[ Suspended in Light]], [[ Under the Red]].

[[ Koyamori]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/HotelCalifornia, {{Tropers/Agogobell}}
* Notable works: [[ sky bridge]], [[ wreath girl]], [[ time]].
* ''Comments:'' Her unique art style needs to be seen. Her emphasis on bold lines and diversity of color gives off a dreamy and optimistic feeling to the viewer. Has a pseudo-[[Creator/HayaoMiyazaki Miyazaki]] touch to it.

[[ Mewstor]]

* Notable works: [[ Reshiram]], [[ The LightBringer]], [[ Rapidash Painting]].

* A very distinctive, beautiful, unique, and albeit a bit cartoony style of drawing, with some fan art, but with some breathtaking original works.

[[ Coconutmilkyway]]

* An interesting and unique style. Capable of going from macabre, to bizarre and even to adorable. Notable works include [[ Followfollowfollow]] and [[ Panic bells its red alert]]. This troper's personal favourites are [[ Fancy Pigeon]] and [[ Puppy Kisses]].

[[ Rongs1234]] (AKA "[[TyopOnTheCover Rings]]")
* Recommended by: @/TropeEater
* Description: {{Animesque}}, slightly SuperDeformed art style. A fanboy of VideoGame/MegaMan.
* Comments: Rarely does anything that would get labeled "mature", at least these days, although there are a lot of cases in which he errs on the side of caution in terms of that. Does a lot of original stuff. Occasionally does furry art, mostly on the near side of FunnyAnimal on the SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism.

[[ Ninja-8004 (AKA Michael Gonzales)]]
* Recomended by: [[ Soran The Man]]
* The following user can best be described as a man whos art is very versatile and varied compared to many other members of the site. His style is based on anime and he tends to post everything from [[ colorless scetches]] to [[ fully colored images]]. Even though his main body of work tends to revolve around [[ Ninjas]], [[ My Little Pony]] and [[ sexy women]], he still manages to find a little something for everyone to enjoy: [[ Comedy]], [[ Action]], [[ Romance]], [[ Heartwarming]], [[ Fanservice]] (for [[ both genders]]) and even [[ some horror]]. He can even throw in a [[ chibi or two]]. But the best part about him is probably the fact that he is a perfect example to how time can really improve an artist and his work. In other words: compare [[ his earlier works]] too [[ his later works]].

[[ AnneMarieBone]]
* Recommended by: mela
* Description: Anne Marie Bone is a professional artist who works in traditional media. In addition to her deviantART gallery, she has a personal gallery where she sells her works. [[]]
* Comments: Her art is truly a thing of beauty. Most of her works are nature and landscape paintings and her use of color is mesmerizing. She also delves into other subjects, including the odd abstract piece and occasional photography.

[[ Genocide Squirrel]]
* Recommended by beeruckzII
* Description: He enjoys drawing classic monsters like Dracula and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
* Comments: I think it is absolutely '''''absurd''''' that he only has 34 watchers! His art is amazing! He SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove!

[[ MiyaToriaka]]
* Recommended by: justaquickie
* Description: She does some amazing Franchise/{{Pokemon}} fanart, including the brilliant [[ FAITH]] doujinshi. She has also done a couple of original series, plus a ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' doujinshi.
* Comments: Her art work varies from digital to coloured pencil, and every single piece is just amazing! And the incredible thing is, if you let her know how wonderful her art is, she's totally humble, and even embarrassed.

[[ Mattwilson83]]
* Recommended by: beeruckzII
* Description: He mostly does [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naru Hina]] stuff but his other art is good too.
* Comments: Check out his [[ NaruHina]] art and his [[ NaruHina Chronicles]] comic.

[[ discoinferno84]]
* Recommended by: Stream of Consciousness
* Notable Works: [[ Golden Gate Bridge]], [[ Drops Of Orange]], [[ South Beach Harbor]], [[ Akaka Falls]], [[ Algae On A Gray Sand Beach]], and [[ View From Kohala Highlands]].
* Comments: He does a lot of [[SceneryPorn nature and travel photography]], mostly in the form of landscape and macro shots. As of this writing, his gallery contains photos from places such as San Francisco, Hawaii, Thailand, Aruba, Spain, Morocco, and Gibraltar. His composition - and camera tech - has improved over time, though his shots with a point-and-shoot camera are impressive.

[[ ukitakumuki (Kai Lim)]]
* Recommended by: Hollownerox
* Description: Specializes in Sci-Fi artwork but he has also done several fantasy art pieces as well. Notable in that he has been officially commissioned to draw art for TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} and [[TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar Age of Sigmar]]; so you can see his art on official Codex books and Black Library novel covers.
* Comments: Really all you need to look at is his rendition of a [[ Black Legion Chaos Space Marine]] to understand what Gamesworkshop saw in him. His digital art is simply stunning in the amount of detail and lore consistency.

[[ Mistress Ainley]]
* Recommended by: beeruckzII
* Description: Mainly does [[Series/DoctorWho Master/Missy]] and [[FoeYay Doctor/Master]] related pieces.
* Comments: As you can tell from her username, she's a big fan of Doctor Who, the Master/Missy and the Doctor/Master pairing. Her style is so beautiful and fresh, and the coloring is very vibrant. Her other works, including Zelda, are really nice too. Though some of her works are NSFW.

[[ The Untempered Prism]]
* Recommended by: beeruckzII
* Description: Her gallery consists of only [[Series/DoctorWho Rose/Doctor]] pictures.
* Comments: It's obvious from just looking at her gallery that she's a HUGE fan of Rose and the Doctor together. She's even added some Classic Who Doctor's with her! And each and every piece - despite there only being 26 works as of February 11th, 2016 - are so beautiful, cute and lovely! The only warning I can give is to not check her out if you're not a fan of the Rose/Doctor pairing.

[[ Cryptic-Creations]]
* Recommended by: Grandphoenix
* Descriptions: Specializes in cute animals, often combined with some type of pun. Has made at least one painting every day for over 3 years.

[[ MrHaliboot]]

[[ Nintendomaximus]] aka Tropers/FroggoFan64
* Recommended by: Tropers/DecafGrub47393
* If you like shipping photos, this artist will have lots for you. I especially enjoy the Phinabella content he has.

[[ Sketch-Lampoon]] (Matthew S. Robson)
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{Rise from Your Grave}}
* Comments: British ''Franchise/LiloAndStitch'' and ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fan artist who has been working on drawing every single [[Characters/LiloAndStitchExperiments genetic experiment]] from the ''Lilo & Stitch'' franchise for years, making truly unique and original designs for every experiment that officially remains unseen to this day. He's managed to [[ArtEvolution get better at drawing over the years]], actually becoming rather talented since he started this "draw every experiment" project with his old "[[ experiments]]" account, reaching near-Disney levels of design and technical quality. If you want to see fan-made experiments that don't look like romanticized derivatives of Stitch[[note]]whether or not said derivatives have a koala-like body[[/note]] and look like they would actually fit in with the franchise's universe (should Disney have continued to focus on introducing new experiments), then this is the guy to watch.


[[ sequentialscott's journals]]
* Recommended by: Troper/{{Korodzik}}
* Description: Contains detailed, expert analyses of wonderful pieces of art of all kinds--from famous paintings through book illustrations to film posters and comicbook covers. A boon and a fascinating read to any artist.
