The word artistic is one word that is never associated to me. I am far from artsy, and should steer clear of making art, for fear of ruining what the word means.
What I can do though, is appreciate some really wonderful artists that I enjoy, so I’ve made a Top 5 list of my favourite Instagram artists.
Before I start I will apologize now for all of the butchering of any and all artistic terms that will be found somewhere in this post, and if you have any suggestions for artists to take a look at, please let me know! I’m always looking for new accounts to explore.
NUMBER 5: @albin_smaili97
Albin does some really amazing work creating anime themed art, and has a focus of doing different mashups for each piece. Another thing Albin likes to do is create the same picture, but in three different styles and each one of them looks distinct and cool in its own way.
He has a big focus on Naruto themed sketches, but does include some other anime and uses the same style. If you’re an anime fan I definitely recommend taking a look at Albin’s nice, what looks like pen, drawings. It’s a sort of ‘messy’ look, but when it’s all done it looks really cool.
NUMBER 4: @lulusketches
So as I found out, Laura (lulusketches) is an artist that works for Disney (dream job for many I assume) and creates some really spectacular pieces. Some scenery art, some character design, Laura creates some beautiful pieces of art you should definitely check out.
I don’t know the term for her type of art style, but its cartoonish and her use of colours truly mimic the real life they are eminating.
NUMBER 3: @jasricart
Jasric loves her her superheroes, and does a hell of a good job drawing them. Don’t get me wrong though, her superheroes are spectacular, but she does other pieces as well.
Whether it’s anime, comic book, or fantasy inspired, Jasric’s Instagram is a perfect platform to showcase her talent.
I don’t know what her art style would be called, but whatever it is, you can see her progression of some of her drawings, and she has gone from great to somehow even better
NUMBER 2: @danielkordek
Daniel has got his subjects figured out on his Instagram page, and does a great job capturing them in his work. There are some really gorgeous pieces, whether they are based on his own imagination or using a cartoon to base his drawing off of.
He has a lot of simplistic art pieces that are truly amazing to look at, and his pieces are a lot more tasteful than some other artists who have a similar style. There are some wonderful cartoon style drawing you should definitely check out.
NUMBER 1: @megancrisp2424
I don’t know what this art style would be called, but I have always loved it, and Megan’s Instagram account is filled with it! The pieces are usually pretty simple, but it is in the simplicity that the beauty is found. Her art tends to have one main focus, taking up most of the picture, but the one subject is all you need to look at.
Megan has cute and adorable pieces and even some more serious ones. When I was looking at most of her pieces I could imagine it being from a cartoon or animated short film.
This isn’t an extensive list of the whole art community on Instagram, but just my favourite artists that I know about. I hope you enjoyed the list!
