View Full Version : Monthly Featured Artist - Recommend Your Favorites!

03-08-2011, 02:24 PM
I've decided to do a Monthly Featured Artist* at the site and I would like your input. Who's your favorite artist? Who do you think deserves recognition for their awesome artwork?

Recommended artists do not have to be professionals or manga artists only but it is preferable that the artist have a body of work (and not just a handful of artwork) in their belt, so to speak.

.....So. Who's art do you admire?

* I'll actually be calling it Awesome Sauce Artist of the Month. :D

03-08-2011, 02:43 PM
Zoe and angel_dreamer are both completely amazing.

03-08-2011, 03:05 PM
MT: mimi and sparky.

-Skottie young.
-Mike Mignola.
-Takehiko Inoue
-Naoki Urasawa
-Tsutomu Nihei
-Ryoichi Ikegami (he has some perspective problems)
-Tony Harris
-Clint Langley

There are many more, but those are my main favorite ones.

03-08-2011, 03:44 PM
Here I gotta say Cype (This man has all the environmental skillz, not to mention the technical points), Sparky(Unique FUNKY style and his use of colors) or Seefy (For her abundance of traditional work, meaning paintings mostly)
Oh, and Toast. I haven't seen many new works, but from the last time. Her stuff was awesome. Same reason as Sparky.

As for pros

There is only one true candidate that deserves this. Zoe.
Her recent work on the Oekaki has been impeccable, and she has improved drastically. Here's a sample pic, I have it bookmarked:
It's her self portrait. Absolutely beautiful.

03-08-2011, 07:47 PM
There are a bunch on the MOB that should be featured. I think if you took all the amazing artists from the oekaki for the featured artists, you'd have half a year's worth easy.

03-08-2011, 07:58 PM
I'd also like to mention Jac. Then again she rarely pops up. Heard she's more active in the Oekaki though.

03-09-2011, 01:28 PM
-Cap'n Sparky

-Cap'n Sparky

Basically this + ZiZi, as she comes up with great art some times. (I particularly like her older 'scribble'-like drawings).

03-10-2011, 11:58 AM
Wow, so many member recommendations! Yeah, I agree that there are a lot of members here that deserve a little time in the spotlight so maybe I'll do two versions: one for members and one for non-members. Anyone know a member who has improved the most over the years? I may do a special every now and then about this.

03-10-2011, 06:55 PM
The ones who have improve the most are Joosh and Tay. Jaidurn and other people also have improve a lot.

03-10-2011, 09:49 PM
@oz&p-jam: .////.

I find CypressDahlia's art ridiculously awesome. Also, I don't think she has an account on the forum, but Rhapsii from MOB is one of my favorite artists, period.

03-11-2011, 02:23 PM
Oooo, yeah, Rhapsii's great. There's a few others who have this very unique style as well. Anywhooo, I'll take a look at all the recommended and decide....

More suggestions and recommendations are welcome so keep the names coming!

03-15-2011, 09:42 AM
I recommend
Rhapss most definitely,
and Teacup , she has such AMAZING lines, akfjakl;sdfj
.both from Oekaki.

03-17-2011, 01:41 PM
Yeah, Jaidurn's art has an unbelievably significant degree of improvement, and it seems as though he isn't slowing down a bit. He and Matt have that ambition that I admire and aspire to achieve in my professional pursuits. Jaidurn has a sheer passion for art, and he has touched the bases on almost all forms of art there is, including simple yet seamless silly photomanipulations and 3D art (of course, encompassing Minecraft, which somewhat touches on architecture). Matt has that dedication I've never seen in my entire life in anyone but him. He is relentless in his artistic pursuits, like Kenichi Shirahama is to martial arts. They're both amazing characters worthy of much praise.

She's got so much talent and skill at a young age. She doesn't limit herself either. :)

06-24-2011, 05:12 PM
Wait, we have a featured artist? Where is this on the site?

06-24-2011, 09:03 PM
I haven't started it yet. C: If you have any recommendations though, feel free to mention anyone.

06-25-2011, 04:34 PM
Pffft, we all know Cype is godly. case closed.

But, Byakuran and Linz are highly underrated IMHO :)

06-27-2011, 01:09 PM
Reg and Zizzers

07-26-2011, 12:20 PM
I have a professional artist that I would like to recommend. Ogure Ito, also known as Oh Great!, the artist that produced Tenjho Tenge and is currently still drawing Air Gear. I can't think of any manga artist that I would like to emulate more than him. Here's his wiki page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh!_great), you can find various images of his work if you do a google search.

07-26-2011, 05:16 PM
It's about time someone else mentioned Oh Great. I'm still reading Tenjho Tenge, the art is just continuously amazing.

08-04-2011, 01:21 PM
cype and gunzet duh!
i like afrobit and Seefy and Rei as well.

08-04-2011, 05:13 PM

08-08-2011, 08:40 AM

08-08-2011, 11:55 AM

08-08-2011, 02:20 PM
Yeah iccy is cool*A*
I miss Iccy :( ... I hope he finds internet soon or returns from his summer job or something...

08-09-2011, 03:56 AM
Iccy? i didn't know that doghateburger is called iccy...
man i gotta know your names in the old site cause it's kinda confusing me.

and now doghateburget=Iccy

what else am i missing?

08-09-2011, 10:29 PM
My favorites are probably Iccy, Cype, and Gunz. Rei, Seefy, and Toast are at the top too

08-11-2011, 02:28 AM
oh wait. i forgot to mention Doghateburger.
i wonder why didn't anyone mention him,

I mentioned him... >_>
(Seriously, I did on page 1.)
Though I think you saw "Iccy" in my post and didn't recognize it, which is perfectly understandable.

08-24-2011, 03:27 AM
Erika and Rei fo sho!

08-25-2011, 09:56 PM

09-03-2011, 06:22 PM
Gunzet! i love his works lately.

11-20-2011, 09:41 PM
I recommend Chii, if she doesn't leave again. She's who kept a fire under my butt when i first started >:[

And i also recommend Josh. And Pixel, but Pixel doesn't go on the forums.

11-21-2011, 05:53 PM

I recommend that guy ^, Cloudy, Taylour, Wolf, Linz, and gunz
Ilu guys SO MAAACH
/idiot fangirl

11-21-2011, 05:54 PM
have there been any featured artists yet?

11-21-2011, 07:34 PM
Nope. I've been wondering what's happened to this myself, lol.

11-24-2011, 02:04 AM
Well let's bring it back to life. :D

04-19-2012, 10:33 PM
Mike Inel is my favourite artist.
Mark Crilley is my mentor.
John Joseco is my inspiration.
Is there much more I can add?

04-20-2012, 03:10 PM
Nope, that's good enough. If I can't find anything about them by searching, I'll ask you for more info. C:

Speaking of which, I think I'll start this up either next month or in June. If anyone has any artists they look up to or think should be featured, post here. :3

05-31-2012, 10:42 AM
Can I feature artists that is not on MT and have not done Manga? Cause I got a dear friend (Calling her my soulsister) that makes beautiful arts! But she do not draw Manga... mostly only dragons XP

06-06-2012, 11:03 PM
Yes, any artist is welcome regardless of whether they draw anime or not. : )

06-06-2012, 11:25 PM
yes! Now the one I mentioned is here aswell ;) So I go ahead and suggest her.

She's called collapsix (http://www.mangatutorials.com/index.php?do=/Collapsix/) on Mt and xcollapsix (http://xcollapsix.deviantart.com/) on DA.

You should really check out her latest picture on da!

It's amazing!

06-10-2012, 11:55 PM
I'm compiling a long ass list for this!

07-31-2012, 02:32 AM

^This guy.

So much jizz looking at his work

08-08-2012, 07:51 PM
I would have to put my bets on Zoe.

08-15-2012, 03:46 PM
If I can recommand someone too, it would be Shilin:
Sorry if it seems like advertising, but I really admire her work, and I like her manga so I think she deserves attention. And I don't know her, if it counts for self defense :D

10-04-2013, 09:50 AM
well i really liked this guy's faces:

hideaki sorachi (from gintama)
