Spotlight on Spikesbint

The first artist to be featured on "Graphics Week" is Angela.
She is known around the RA online community as Spikesbint or Angelfish.
I absolutely LOVE her work.  The color, the cropping, the style... just love it.
Most of you have probably seen her creations online because so many people use her art.
You may visit her Angelfish Icons site HERE to see hundreds of her RA graphics.

Spikesbint is not just a Richard Armitage artist... her site is multi fandom and is "Queen of Icons."
She has Phantom of the Opera, Pirates of the Carribean, Lord of the Rings, Snape (loved those),
 and almost any Jane Austen or costume drama movie. (You name it, she has an icon for it!)

Okay, enough chatter.
Here are a few of my favorite Spikesbint creations.
(It was hard limiting them.)

*Reminder: please be sure to ask her permission
and credit Spikesbint for any artwork used.*

Oh, and if being a talented graphic artist wasn't enough...
Spikesbint also creates some killer fanvids!
*Pause the blog's background music at the bottom of the screen before watching.*

Be sure to visit her Angelfish Icons site and her YouTube channel
because there are TONS of wonderful things to behold.

Angela, thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us!  Keep up the good work!

I have absolutely no talent for graphics unlike Angela! Thanks Angela (and I love your fics. as well).

Nice post Nat!

Angela is just talented. Graphics, videos, writing. She does it all really well, and I would say that even if Richard Armitage were not the subject.

I love everything Angela has done. Many a wallpaper has graced my computer thanks to her. The vids are brilliant and I love reading her fic.

Angela's artwork (both wallpapers and videos) is beyond words.

I hope that Richard Armitage has seen her work?

I think that he would be very appreciative.

Just gorgeous.

If Richard Armitage hasn't seen her work, then he's missing out. Angela could easily go pro with her graphics. She's that talented and apparently smart enough to become this good technically without formal training -- at least I don't think she's had any.

Love the wallpaper!

Oh, I should have said her videos as well, but hey maybe they deserve their own post. :D They are excellent, and I say that after having watched the Lord only knows how many videos on YT and other places (Richard Armitage and otherwise) including watching a couple of years' worth of hers. I see the evolution of her abilities, and I say this as someone who desires absolutely nothing from Angela except to express appreciation of a great eye and ear. She's got a gift and learning to apply it well. I hope she's able to do something even more with it.

I love Angela's work. I've known her since I started following Richard's career. I've got several of her videos among my favourites on Utube and love them! Thanks to her for all the beautiful things she shares with us and thanks to you Nat for this great post!

Aww, thank you so much for your kind words. I must admit to needing them today. I have taken a bit of an emotional beating from a family member and this made me smile. T^hanks Nat for featuring my stuff on your lovely blog too *hug*

Dear spikesbint,
As everyone else has said your artwork is superb, but I must comment on this video I just finished watching!
There aren't enough words to express how professional and touching it was, except to say -- it made me cry!
Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us!
