Greg Martin has been fascinated with sharing his outlook on life through his art since he was a child. He started out as most young artists do, drawing and painting. Later on, he moved into visual design. Today, Greg works on a variety of projects including concept art for movies, illustrations, and other design projects.
Tobais is another extremely impressive young artist. He is 21 and lives in Germany. He manages to do quite well selling his space art on his own website as well as the DA Prints store. Something unique about Tobais and his work is that he uses a lot of his own photography in his space art.
Mr. Alexei Kozachenko is a young designer I came across on Deviant Art. Alexei Kozachenko is a young designer in his early 20s and currently lives in Switzerland. He started learning design in 2005 and used the Deviant Art community to learn more about his art and perfect his skills.
Alyn is a spirited young designer, 19 years young. This creative and humorous artist has the ability to create a variety of landscapes and images that are, well, out of this world. He also uses Deviant Art on a regular basis to partner up with other artist and collaborate on projects to share with the community.
