Amazing New Artist

I just came across this artist while browsing the newest TLKFAA uploads and they are definitely worth a look. Everything they've posted so far is canon and there are some amazing photoshop paintings in their gallery. I definitely want to see this person as Artist of the Month sometime. Here's the gallery link so you can check them out:

http://fanart.lionking.org/Artists/Valentinovi/

Been awhile since a new artist impressed me this much.

Also wasn't sure if this should've gone in In the Spotlight or Gotta Praise You. Feel free to share any new or unknown talent you've come across that you think deserves attention.

WHOA. o-O What amazes me is that she does a lot of these on a single layer. It's like bringing traditional into PS. These are really neat.

I don't know about you guys but I think we need to fire up the lesser known and new artists thread again. c:

EDIT: She's got some pretty amazing stuff on her deviantart too. :3

Or just use this thread for a new one if that one is old enough to risk bumping.

I agree. She's certainly a candidate for AotM.

Let's vote for her to avoid another this month situation.
I'm impressed at the single-layer work as well! I don't know anything about layers. None of my computer work has any layers, ever.

It's a lovely change!

None of mine has any layers either. Partly because I do my lineart and flat colors in another program so can't and I keep forgetting how to do layers. XP I bet she'd be really surprised to get AOTM after only a month on the archive.

This girls art is amazing, I have to admit I was unsure of the swirlyness (for want of a better word) of the colouring, but after a while it grows on you and it's really fresh and new. (And she draws WAY better than me, so who am I to judge?) I'd vote for her if I was on the archive.
