Be prepared for a long-ass list! I threw in photographers and craftsmen as well as vastly different art styles, just to add some lots of diversity. * = ones I think you'd particularly like. IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER!!!
just go through opening tabs and viewing galleries to browse what catches your eye!

Maybe not the kind of artist you're looking for but this guy: www.youtube.com/watch?v=leCAy1…

He inspires me like no one else and not even to anything specific but to just put myself out on a limb and try something absolutely insane.

He isn't on dA but one of my biggest photography inspirations is Jimmy Nelson. You've probably seen his most recent photo release "Before They Pass Away": beforethey.com/

Obviously Kilaq ;) 
(for creative inspiration. and I also love her photography style.)

=Ahkward (idk if you have heard of her) but she inspires me to strive for originality :>

The equine photographer Christiane Slawik: www.slawik.com/en#2 (she also isn't on dA)

and also the very talented ~NaturePunk

Ohkay here we go. First of all I'd like to mention I am a fan of just about any skilled in field wildlife sketch artist.
But I think my most favorite artists outside dA are John Howe, because he is everything I imagine an artist should be, like some mythical creature but hes real. XD
Second is Lee Hammond, just because I learned so much from her books...
I am forever grateful and look up to her.

And here is a large compilation of my favorite artists nicely gathered together in two art feature journals.

Well, I have a People-I-Watch Journal, here: phi8.deviantart.com/journal/Th… ,I think you might be especially interested in the first category, but the others are certainly good too!
As for people that aren't (as far as I know) on dA: José-Luis Munuera, Enrico Marini, André Franquin, Steven Dupré, Regis Loisel, Juanjo Guarnido. They're all European comicdrawers and they're my big examples since I want to become one myself. And then also Ken Sugimori, but that's more a fan thingy.
