Why this piece is awesome: I envy artists that can bridge the line between realism and caricature in their cartoon portraits and these are just wonderful.Incredibly expressive,they capture the essence of the characters while still maintaining a genuine likeness.

Why this piece is awesome: First of all, it's an ATC. I mean look at the amazing detail on this. And it's gorgeously done. Happy Dom/Mal juxtapositioned with the top, the inception crew and the wreck of the city with the border between them just has a powerful kick of melancholy and pathos. I can say though that I wish all these wonderful artists were a little more creative with naming their pieces.

Why this piece is awesome: Couples night tonight. Starting with this gorgeous piece. It doesn't really show anything but suggests everything. Love the intensity of expression and muted tones that give this piece a gorgeous erotic art feel. This artist has some amazing Arthur/Eames stuff. Be sure to check it all out.

Why this piece is awesome: I'm a portrait and figure person primarily and Inception has some wonderful ones but it also has some amazing graphic and design work and in this case this awesome dreamscape cityscape. There's such wonderful light and color in this that it has an ethereal feel perfect for a depiction of something created in a dream.

Why this piece is awesome:I couldn't decided between the other Arthur and this one, so why not both? Nothing beats Arthur's determined face and his defying gravity and the artist turns all that with a wonderful cartoon style. The flat colors and strong lines remind me of a 60's cartoon.

Why this piece is awesome: Totems are an important part of the movie and the artist exploits that by doing this terrific, graphic version of each one, complete with quotes from the characters making up the shape of their totem. Adding the vintage look pulls it together beautifully and these would have made wonderful alternate posters for the movie. The artist has alternate versions of these but I'm a sucker for that sepia tinted vintage look.

Why this piece is awesome: All of Tatrnikova's pieces are awesome, but I like this one in particular for the sort of unwilling intimacy of the pose: the way their heads and upper arms touch, while their hands are kept separate.

The framing of this piece is brilliant. I love the movement in Arthur's posture (has he just transformed from a bat?) and Eames wild hair and red claws are beautifully done.

Why this piece is awesome: Ah, mirrors and forgeries! An Inception fanart trope I will never get tired of. Plus, dancing!
I love the colours in this piece, and the composition between the background, foreground and mirror couples. The details of Eames and Arthur's masks and clothes are exquisite. The whole thing is just beautiful.

Why these pieces are awesome: I love these pieces as a set; how unified they are by the style and yet how the background elements change to reflect each character. The palette of colours is great and the spare use of textures just gives the whole ensemble a gorgeous feel.

Why this piece is awesome: This piece is just gorgeous. I looove the saturated watercolour, the whole palette is just brilliant, with the purple of the window being echoed on Arthur's skin. Really, the shear amount of hues layered on Arthur is amazing. The composition is great, and Arthur's pose is the perfect balance between focussed and relaxed. Awesomeness all around.

Why this piece is awesome: The reason why Arthur failed to discover Fischer's subconscious was militarized :D
What makes this piece work so well are the facial expressions: Saito frowning, Yusuf arguing, Ariadne being all attentive... and Cobb squinting, of course! I love that Eames' smirk still has a very fond quality to it, and Arthur's little smile is just precious! I'm amazed at how the pencil work manages to be both free and expressive as well as incredibly faithful to the actor's likeness.
I also love the unusual point of view, and the way the whole scene is backlit. A great piece all around.

Why this piece is awesome: Oh my God, I am so glad this piece was finally posted! This is hands down the best art to come out of the [livejournal.com profile] i_reversebang challenge, and that is saying something, considering the level of greatness of that fest as a whole.
The concept of this piece is cracktastic, the execution is flawless. The difference in pixelation between the characters and the environment just works AND OMG THE CHARACTERS. Saito and Yusuf are gleefully badass, Eames wins at everything and Arthur, ARTHUR WHAT ARE YOU DOING? :D

You have to respect a fandom that can canonically send their characters into Super Mario, and this art deserves not only your respect, but your eternal admiration.

Why this piece is awesome: If there is one Inception crossover that deserves to exist above all the others, it has to be this one. The idea that Limbo is in fact the Dreaming, and that Morpheus is there to welcome Saito is just perfect. The drawing style is beautiful, all soft colours and dynamic outlines (Daniel's hair is drawn like the clouds!) and I love, love, love the angles and composition of the last three frames. A truly wonderful work.

Why this piece is awesome: I'm sorry? I have to justify the awesomeness of this piece? Is it not readily apparent? This is just the cutest thing in the world, from the blue PASIV strings, to Cobb's pointy beard, to Eames' smile, to Arthur's adorable frowny face. I love it to bits.

Why this piece is awesome: Well, aside from the fact that it was drawn for a gyzym fic, I've always loved how onthecount draws faces. They look so delicate and boyish somehow, add to that flour on Arthur's face and Ariadne smiling at the boys indulgently in the background, and I can stare at this for hours!

Why this piece is awesome: I wish I can offer more about this artist or more samples of his work, but as 'Eames and Arthur' is the only fan art in his gallery and no links are given otherwise, we can only guess and hope for more. I like how quiet this piece is, we don't even see Arthur's face and both of them are looking away from each other, but the quietness adds to the tension somehow. Also, this is probably one of my most favourite depiction of Eames ever.
