Destiny Schafer - art prodigy - one to watch

Destiny Schafer has been painting since 2011, she's from Canada, she's a high school dropout, she uses craft acrylic and no-name brushes to produce her multi-style paintings; she's 21 years old. The most impressive feature of Schafer's work is her underpainting where she lays down the base tones of her art onto which she lays the rich mid-tones and the reflective details.

This stuff is superb even if it was using the best hog-hair brushes and the most expensive oils and I'm not even sure Destiny knows how really good her work is; meanwhile...

Photo-realistic eyes, surreal four-eyed pets, rainstorms against car windows - there are artists out there who are basing their entire art portfolio on these separate topics, Destiny Schafer seems able to polish them all off with ease. She also does tattoo-art, seascapes, coke bottles, Jack Daniels, elk and arthropods to rival any professional artist in the illustrational field - Art Agents and Visual Commissioning Editors, please get this girl some cover work.

I'll revisit this artist in a few years time once she's found her path, wherever that takes her...
