Sometimes we spot an artist here on WinCustomize that shows a ridiculous amount of promise. There are a lot of digital artists that post work here every single day, but now and then one comes up that does such terrific work that you just sit back and go "Wow!" And it's even more satisfying when you can see how the artist has grown in talent over their time on the site.
Today, I was browsing through the newest skins list and hit upon just such an artist; Libardo (lgp85). What specifically caught my eye was his Iron Man folder icon for ObjectDock
That helmet? Drawn and colored from scratch in Photoshop. That's one of the best individual icons I've seen in some time here.
He's also done some great CursorFX themes recently:
But like I said, what makes his recent work even more impressive, is going back through his gallery to see some of his original work. Way back in early 2005, Libardo joined us primarily as a cursor skinner. Here are his very first uploads to the site:
Judging by his latest icon, and how far he's come since starting in skinning, I think Libardo is one of those skinners everyone should keep an eye on, I bet we'll be seeing big things from him in the future!
