Big Huge List of Some Amazing Women Artists!
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!

Duncan: “Did you kill all those people?”
Methos: “Yes. Is that what you want to hear? Killing was all I knew. Is that what you want to hear?”
Duncan: “It’s enough.”
Methos: “No it’s not enough! I killed…but I didn’t just kill fifty. I didn’t just kill a hundred. I killed a thousand! I killed TEN thousand! And I was good at it. And it wasn’t for vengence. It wasn’t for greed. It was because I liked it. Cassandra was nothing. Her village was nothing. D’you know what I was? I was Death! Death on a horse! When mothers warned their children that the monster would get them, that monster was me. I was the nightmare that kept them awake at night. Is that what you want to hear? The answer is yes. Oh yes.”

10 typical perspective errors
Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.
1. Lines not reaching the vanishing point
Well this is pretty simple to avoid but it’s the most common mistake. It’s probably due to either carelessness or really not having understood the basic of perspective. I encourage you to go back and find some basic tutorial for this.
Anyway, be ALWAYS careful about where to ‘send’ your lines, they NEED to go towards the correct vanishing point or it will just look awkward. Double check if necessary.
And always, ALWAYS use a ruler.
If your style requires lines that are a bit less geometrical (as mine do, I have a style of inking that’s sketchy so ‘perfect’ lines drawn with a ruler usually don’t fit well in the picture) use a ruler anyway for the pencils and then ink later by freehand. At least you’ll have correct guidelines underneath.
For traditional drawing be sure you have a ruler and be sure to use it for each one of your lines.
Modern drawing software will help you a lot with this if you draw directly on computer: painting software such as Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio 4EX or 5 have perspective tools that will automatically snap your lines towards the vanishing point.
it’s quite a long tutorial, you’ll find the rest under the Read More or you can download the pdf file here
This bird knows he looks amazing.
Frogmouths are indeed very handsome devils…
Until they open their mouth…
and you realize they are basically bird muppets.

What planet are you from, stranger?
You have an outer-space violin in your left ear
that plays a string of quiet clouds
in the noisy subway.
I suspected it, and others, too, suspected it
and, true: you have a strange device on your retina
that can always catch the small ads falling from the sky
through the windy air down to the streets.
Even the sleeping fats in your body are suspiciously
I worry that one day you will
wing your way back to that other planet with the potato chips
that are left in your hands decorating your big wings.
And I will be left here alone trying to decipher
your space diary written in snow.
I worry. I always worry.
Fortunately: I’ve snapped a wavelength of your planet
by pulling out a poetic antenna
in the back of my head
while you are cooking in the kitchen.
You are cooking again, this morning.
A little voice of alien vowels issues an order
to the woodpecker
from our balcony: Let her stay there
as our life-long
at his side, do not try to wake her up!
