My entry to the "Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 18"
And the craziest part is that I don't even have to spend hours or even minutes to hunt for talent. There are so many great artists that I usually have to choose 2 posts from 4 or 5 that I encounter naturally on my daily SteemIt visits.
I actually spend more time writing these posts than hunting for new talent.
The rules of this challenge are very simple: Feature 2 High Quality Original Content Blog Posts from Steemians with a reputation score of 55 or under.
Again, I've selected 2 struggling artists. Here's the preview of their artworks:
#1 - @marya77 (41)
@marya77 has joined SteemIt just 4 months ago and her blog is very diverse, she shares a bit of everything, from photography (she appears to be from Iran) to cooking and, of course, her lovely drawings.
She doesn't share anything personal and perhaps that's a conscious decision, so I'll just focus on her work and skip my usual artist introduction.
@marya77 also includes 10 photos showing the various steps into the drawing.
I had a couple more users I wanted to feature, but in the end, I decided to go with this post for a couple of reasons:
- At first there was almost no text in this post, making it unfit for this contest, but meanwhile, @marya77 added it;
- @marya77's reputation is only 41, making her a perfect candidate for this contest;
- This post has been up for 2 days and has a ridiculous reward of $0.03 and 25% of those $0.03 are going to the Elegance Platform. How is an artist supposed to eat with that?
Please give @marya77 some love...
#2 - @lady-idra (42)
I love to make an artist's introduction but sometimes it's just not possible. If people don't share that information, I respect that decision and I move on.
Alenia joined SteemIt in April, but started posting just a couple of months ago. Her drawings are very original, cute and creative... which makes me wonder, what in the world was she waiting for?
I have just come across @lady-idra and I'm eager to follow her work. If this is the way she started, I can only imagine what she will present in the future.
I hope you enjoy these artists and their works. If so, please support them with a couple of votes and comments.
