• Artist Spotlight: Syntactics / Tobibrocki / PaleBlank / The-Wizard-Of-Art

    Art in whatever form it takes is an expression of the self, demonstrated by not only the subject matter of the piece in question but the technique, style, and form the piece takes. Able to open up unlimited possibilities and perspectives, art lets us expand our minds and explore realms we would never have thought of alone. So, once again, let's delve into some artwork by artists you might not have heard of before and explore some new worlds together, eh?

    As usual, these posts are in similar style to the Tumblr Spotlights, a group of 3-4 artists will be spotlit each entry along with a small short description along with a small selection of their artwork! In order to make this feature work though we need people to suggest artists to us so make sure to send artists you think need some exposure to [email protected]. Please also include a short biography I can work with as well as what medium you work in most.

    What sort of artists count? Suggestions should follow these criteria:

    • No clop or extensive gore galleries as those typically violate our content guidelines. If the artist has a safe for work gallery separate from their not safe for work stuff they or their fans can submit the safe for work gallery. If there is a mix of SFW/NSFW on a gallery the decision whether or not to include them will be judged on a gallery to gallery basis.
    • Don't be afraid to spotlight yourself as well as others!
    • Artists of all types accepted -vector, OC, traditional, digital. As long as it is pony and of quality it has a chance of being spotlit. 
    Now on to the artists!

    Our first artist for today utilizes a wonderful paint like style with many pieces bordering on the abstract and surreal. Syntactics uses her style to great effect to mostly portray a cyberpunk version of Equestria through her standalone pieces as well as her tumblr Cyberpunk Spitfire. Featuring darker content you don't usually see associated with pony, Syn explores some very interesting concepts with their artwork that is sure to intrigue!


    From something serious to something silly, Tobibrocki serves as an excellent contrast to Syntactics. Tobi's artwork is both of the cute and silly variety, made all the more so by his excellent use of expressions as well as visual gags he employs in his pieces. If you want a smile, just go through his gallery!

    While many artists find a style and stick with it, there are a few out there that are very fluid with their styles and are able to pull off everything from creepy, to cool, to cute. PaleBlank certainly matches this profile with their range of traditional and digital drawings! Check out some samples below.

    Our last artist for today is certainly not the least! As a lover of traditional artwork I was blown away at the care and detail The Wizard of Art puts into his pieces. Warmhearted and cute to boot, you'll fall in love with his paintings I'm sure!
