Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.

Here's another deviation journal feature!! yay!! Are you ready?!
OK so since I haven't done one of these in a little while (it's been 2 weeks!) and there are lots of authentic art listed in my Favorites, I'll just post 25 works that I captivated me the most. Why not! And if I fail to include any of your work (in case you're one of my Watchers), don't worry. There's always next month. I'll list you in another category. Maybe it doesn't have to be a monthly feature or 'the best art of all time' deal.
I'll do another journal entry listing 25 more deviations from the same list. I make sure to include just one work from every artist even when I've already fave'd many from the same one. It's cool to see some variations. Enjoy!
