A: Hopefully, once a month! (Health willing!)

Q: What prompted you to start doing this?

Q: How do you find the deviations you feature?
   A: I browse through the newest deviations for "horse" under all categories at the end of every day. I find it's a great way to wind down   before bed!

A: A deviant with exceptional talent that has under 100 watchers.

Q: What do you consider a "newbie"?
A: Someone, who at the time the issue is posted, has only been on deviantART for 6 months or less.

I'm so glad you're doing this, I've found new people to watch--who definitely deserve much more attention and to be brought to light more often. Thank you c:

May I also suggest ~PortraitsbyCaroline ~DistortedRationality ~Vianden ~luxsac ? I realize I should probably note this, but dA has a tendency to send my notes multiple times even with one click and I wouldn't want to spam you :lmao:

Thank you! It's comments like this that make the hours of browsing per-volume worth it! :w00t: I did take a two-month break, but I'm hoping to get back on the "once a month" thing, if I can.

Also, thank you very much for the suggestions! :glomp: Could I bother you to send me the names of those artists in a note, anyway? (I don't care if I get multiple ones.) Comments get lost soooo fast. :faint: Notes are much easier for me to keep organized. :)

Crazy-Sparkles Featured By Owner May 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah well, you know me. I call 'em as I see 'em.

For whatever reason, most "inspirational" equine art is realistic in nature. Whether that's because artists prefer realism to depict inspirational scenes, most artist's here haven't found their unrealistic "style" or prefer not to use it, or a realistic piece is the best style to use for such things, I'm not sure. But there are a few Stylized Artists out there that truly do inspirational things with their unrealistic styles, and if I can find them, I will feature them! :w00t:

If you prefer stylized equine art, I recommend trying #StylizedEquines and/or #EarnestlyEquine.

Thank you so much! :glomp: It does take an extrodinary amount of time and effort to search and find appropriate pieces to feature, and it's comments like this that really let me know that my hard work is appreciated! :huggle: I took a break this month from PE, but April's Feature is waiting in my Stash to be tweaked and published, so you'll see that soon! I'm so glad you're enjoying it! :happybounce:

...While I'm talking to you, did I ever thank you for the incredibly thoughtful and cute Easter Card you sent me? If I didn't, it was so precious, and totally made my day! :aww: Thank you so much! :hug:

Yay, can't wait the next one to come out. I made fav spam from the one above + added one or two person to my watchlist, though now really can't remember who those where :)

Also glad to hear that you enjoyed the card. It had you name written all over it, not buying it would have equal the feeling of walk by you without saying hi... You are always pleasure suprise, since you come back to me. I will see what I can think of next time ;D

Take care :tighthug:

Lovely article! Should've seen it sooner. xD

I'm glad to see ~VeronikaFrizz there, looove her paintings. :heart:

How about featuring ~Loginova next? If you're not already aware of her... her photo-like traditional paintings will make your jaw drop to the floor.

~Loginova will get some of her pieces featured in the next issue! I had them in there before you even mentioned it! :giggle: Great minds think alike, eh? :glomp: You also have A LOT of pieces being featured in the next issue because you dominate the pixel category, not just by talent, but by quantity. It's unfortunate, but there just isn't a lot of pixel art or animation to feature :(

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! :squee: It really means a lot coming from someone so talented and who is, I'm sure, just as swamped with messages as I am! :faint: :giggle:

Keep being awesome! :hug:

Hehe yes, Loginova... can't believe she has no DDs yet! :noes: The last CV didn't seem interested in my suggestion. Wonder if someone should suggest again?

Yeah, that honestly annoys me - wish there were more people giving pixels a try. So often, people note me asking "Can you recommend some similar pixellers?" and I have to say "Uhh, *Horizon10 , ~Skye-Fate and I really don't know any others, wish I did though"!

How do you think we could encourage more to try it? I would really be interested in promoting it somehow. But apart from some tutorials in the works, not sure how I could do that. ^^;

I have a very good friend, ^Astralseed who I believe is taking DD suggestions that she can feature (she just became a Community Helper a little while ago). If you want to drop her a note telling her about ~Loginova, she just might give her the DD she very much deserves! :aww:

I feel your pain when it comes to pretty much dominating a category. Before life murdered 99% of my artistic inspiration, I used to do a lot of equine writing. People would ask me the same things, "Is there anyone similar you know of?" and I had no one to send them to. Actually, when I first drafted Project Equine, there was a section for Equine Literature/Poetry. But I had to get rid of it because there weren't any "inspirational" equine writings. Heck, there were barely any new submissions in that category at all over the course of an entire month. There were some pieces, but they weren't serious pieces, just something someone HAD to write for school, or a written equivalent of a doodle. So I feel your pain, man. At least your category is still hanging in there! :highfive:

I actually do have a suggestion. Let me write it up in a note and I'll send it to you in a few! :aww: :glomp:

Aha... Loginova just got a DD yesterday! :giggle: Yeah, I re-suggested to Astralseed since the old CV didn't act.
It's awesome to see all the support she's been getting. So many people who never saw her work before...

That definitely sounds familiar. xD;
But yes, at least the entire pixel art category is still holding up, even if it is a bit niche. There may not be many equine pixellers, but the style itself is definitely here.

Aaand got ya note, lovely ideas, thanks! :glomp:

sorry if this says I faved it several times, my mouse was being mean and kept double clicking so when I'd try to fav it it would fave and then remove it right away too :( took me a while before my mouse would actually behave and actually let me fav it properly!

Well, I only faved it once.. it's just that every time I'd try to fave it my mouse would click it again and remove the fav right away so I had to do it a few time to make the fav stick.
