• Artist Spotlight: Anarchemitis / Dilarus / Burning-Heart-Brony / Abydos91

    Hello hello everyone! Now that the holidays are over I can get back into features like this. Today we've got a nice mix of new and old for you all as well as a couple vector artists which we don't see too often sadly! Find them all after the break.

    As usual, these posts are in similar style to the Tumblr Spotlights, a group of 3-5 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!

    On our journey into the art world today we're going to start with a vector artist that has quite impressed me with their dedication to show style and incredible detail. Vector artwork takes a lot of patience and dedication from what I've seen so it's truly unique when you get an artist that goes all out, including multiple characters, backgrounds, and dynamic scenes. Anarchemitis has mastered this combination perfectly, giving us a number of charming and heartwarming scenes in basically show detail.

    Next up is an artist whose combination of a unique style as well as humor and sheer cuteness make for some really wonderful drawings. Dilarus shares his talent in a number of ways, through his comics and through his single pieces. Using exaggeration and facial expressions to great effect you can really feel the emotions and humor in pieces he does. Take a look!

    Our next artist is the newest of the bunch, but just because they are new doesn't mean they can't be impressive! So far their main claim to fame is the Rarity and Spike comic A Change of Heart that you might have seen in our comic updates. Usually, it takes an artist a few comic series to get a hang of it, but Burning comes running right out of the gate with this well drawn and well written comic. Utilizing a very detailed and colorful drawing style I'm sure we can expect more awesome stuff to come!

    Last but not least on our list today is another one from the vector crowd! While doing show style much like Anachemitis, Abydos trends towards the more unique and varied instead of mainly show style scenes you might see with Anachemitis. While you can expect a hearty warming show scene from Anachemitis you can expect sillier scenes like Luna and Pip eating spaghetti or video game references from Abydos91. With just as much attention to detail as Anachemitis you can expect good things from Abydos, especially if you're looking for something silly or want a commission!
