H: My name is Hedgem0ny and I'm a longtime fan of Bungie and the worlds they build. I try to boost the signal of fan art and the artists themselves.
H: The Reef surprised me a great deal. The Awoken attitudes towards Guardians is fascinating. The glimpses into Brother Vance's time as a Warlock and his mistrust of the Speaker. So much to be learned just from that social space. I love the vendor and NPC dialogue. It's worth spending some time just listening to them.
H: Mostly Twitter. @Hedgem0ny is where I live.
H: I started with Halo and became a member of Halo.Bungie.Org because I wanted to talk to people who loved that amazing game so much. From there, I went back and played older Bungie games. As to being known, it's great that Bungie have always loved community feedback and remember people over the years. Hang on...did you just call me old?
H: The Art and Stuff group on Bungie.net is great. Their competitions are fun as well. Deviantart.com is wonderful for artwork of varying skill levels. I believe there is no such thing as bad art, just passion drawn badly. Haha. It's the only place you will be able to see a My Little Pony Guardian. It's great just to see people inspired enough to make art. To create something themselves. Artstation.com is also terrific and you can find some top notch work there. Over at pixiv.net Japanese artists have been producing some nice artwork. It's certainly growing as Destiny expands. I try to put as much as I can on Twitter.[Note: Links chosen by the Editor to provide for a safe landing - not all art is Rated T for Teen]
H: If we are talking Bungie then everyone there is a genius and highly talented. Bungie knows how to spot great talent from Craig Mullins to Shi Kai Wang to Isaac Hannaford to Joseph Cross - just everyone. On the community side, Gary Quill Jr is inventive and fun. Levi Hoffmeier is also high on my list. Zachary D Bradley is fantastic. His work is moody and nails Destiny. I'm a big fan of his artwork.[Note: Not everything you'll see in those galleries will be meant for Destiny]
H: The character designs in Destiny are so strong, varied, and relatable that people want to draw them. The art direction is vivid, the colors are gorgeous, and the armor/weapon variants are well-suited to individual interpretations. I have noticed there is more Hunter art than the other classes.
H: The best way to support artists is for Bungie to continue to make great art. That inspiration alone drives the art, then the community promotes and supports it from within. The Art of Destiny book is a great resource for a lot of artists and any time you post concept art or game character profiles for cosplay the art community run with it. It's circular I guess. Creativity breeds creativity. Brother Vance would say it's "all part of the pattern."
