Artist of the Day: Pumpkiiin Wadim Petunim
Wadim Petunim (aka Pumpkiiin) is a 17 year old guy from Germany, making amazing digital portraits with fantastical colors. His work reminds me of the fantasy and romanticism in Japanese Gothic and Lolita, as well as Harijuku, even though there is nothing about costume in his work... for him it's all about the makeup and the hair, the eyes and the lips, they seem to say it all! This kid has a very very bright future ahead of him, and I love being able to see his growth as an artist in his gallery.
