Sakura by ArgentumChloride Sakura by ArgentumChloride
How do you know that it's springtime on DA? Sudden flurry of cherry blossom macros cramming our Watch inbox and flooding the feature articles! :D This, however, is something different. Scx's sakura blossom is captured in a delicate, subdued pink with deep purple shadows and soft highlights. The flower itself looks like it's made of glass. Everything about this photo is gorgeous, from the composition to the colors to the contrast, the reflective surface, the gentle blur of the background. This is truly a breathtaking piece! Check out Scx's macro gallery for more awesome!

Perception by FaMz Perception by FaMz
You may recognize this deviant...she was honored with a DD only a few days ago for another stunning… from her series on discrimination. Each work is bold and a slap in the face, but I have to admit, I have a special fondness for this particular one. A little bit violent, a little bit delicate, and a whole lot of awesome. This piece sends a bold and much needed message to those who define themselves and others by physical appearance and weight; a message that can never be stated enough. Check out the rest of this series for more beautiful and striking works!

great dane by dogflea Great Dane by dogflea
I love this very simple but extremely well done little doggy. :aww: The style of it is what impresses me the most; at first I thought it was a vector, than a traditional acrylic or even a watercolor. The painterly style is just wonderful, and it very simply captures all the shades and shapes and colors of this dog without being distracting or sloppy. I love the movement and the inquisitive look on his face the most! :aww: Her gallery is filled with lots of very interesting pieces...go take a look!

:thumb163577222: Dandelion by overclouded
I love this picture! The photographer has done a wonderful job of capturing all the little lines and details on this dandelion and the beautiful contrast in the water droplets. This picture has the perfect balance of crisp, sharp lines and smooth bokeh and curves, and the soft desaturated colors against bright highlights and deep shadows. There is really not much more to say about this except that it is awesome! :D

potrait8 by Wen-Xaeroaaa Portrait 8 by Wen-Xaeroaaa
I had a rough time deciding which of this new artist's wonderful pieces to feature...he's so talented! This portrait, though, is by far my favorite work. This is a beautiful and simple piece where the personality of the character jumps right off of the page (screen?). I love the beautiful painterly style and the smooth blending of the shadows, and the face and skin are just magnificent! The subject must be awfully proud of this one. :D Check out Wen-Xaeroaaa's beautiful gallery for more!

What th- no fan art features!?!?! I know, there will be an overload next week. ;)
Have a good week ya'll!
