    Monthly Featured Artist - Recommend Your Favorites!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I'd also like to mention Jac. Then again she rarely pops up. Heard she's more active in the Oekaki though.

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

    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.
