Q: What is "Project Equine"?
   A: It's my way of bringing together all corners of the vast dA Equine Community by showcasing the most inspirational work from each category in one place at one time.

Q: How often will the issues come out?
A: Hopefully, once a month! (Health willing!)

Q: What prompted you to start doing this?

A: I was so inspired by Astralseed's Project Porkchop and MichelleWalker/Cricketwing's Horsin' Around that I decided to do something similar! :aww:

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!

Q: What do you consider "under-appreciated"?

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.

Q: If I know someone I think should be featured, can I note/comment with my suggestion(s)?
 A: :new: Yes! Please title your note something along the lines of "Suggestion for Project Equine". You cannot suggest yourself.

If you see any work featured that is stolen or suspected of copyright infringement, please send me a note! Thanks!

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. :)

Can I just thank you for featuring a traditional artist who didn't specialise in realism!!! :squee: THANKYOU!~
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.
