(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)
I’m not actively involved in any fandoms, so this week’s fandom freebie was quite daunting. I’ve decided to showcase some of the best fan artists I follow: they all produce amazing work, but don’t get as much appreciation as they deserve because they use their skills in the name of fandom.
10) Amber (@cute_loot)
Amber posts a new illustration every day, so a lot of her art isn’t fandom related (there are some adorable drawings of dinosaurs and cats!) but I found her account through this brilliant drawing of Rosita from ‘The Walking Dead’.
9) Cack Handed Kid (@cackhandedkid)
8) Giselle (@itsgisellepr)
7) Stephen Ward (@stephenward_art)
6) Ampharos (@ampharosie.181)
Ampharosie draws Pokemon, but she uses colour in such interesting ways. Her Eeveelution drinks are a particularly unique idea!
5) Cal and Meg (@wedrawtogether_)
I haven’t been following Cal and Meg for very long, but they post extremely accurate drawings of lots of superheroes and Disney characters – I won’t be surprised if either of them become professional illustrators or animators pretty soon!
4) Carla Wyzgala (@carlawyzgala)
3) Nicholas Cross (@iamnickcross)
2) Holly Chapman (@holztoons)
1) Begsy (@odetofew)
Begsy’s studies of different twenty one pilots’ songs take my breath away. You can see the full thread here, but the studies above (for ‘Migraine’ and ‘Isle of Flightless Birds’) are my favourites so far.
It’s a well-known fact that the Skeleton Clique have some extremely talented artists – part of the reason that the band teamed up with their fans to redecorate an entire tube station back in November – but Begsy is the best of the best.
I’ll love her even more when she releases her study of ‘A Car, A Torch, A Death’, which I’m sure is going to be beautiful.
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! Share your love for your favourite fan artists down below: I always love discovering new creative minds.
