  • Tribute to Members Past



    With this being the fifth awards ceremony, I thought that it would be nice to look back over the previous years and to our previous members and to remember those artists who perhaps are no longer active in the fanart community, or are around but just don't get a chance to art anymore. I for one know that there are several artists within this list who were amazing inspirations to me and even now a lot of their art is still guiding me through how I create wallpapers.

    As you can imagine a lot of artists have come and gone over the past few years, so I have gone through the members from the very first two years that the AFAs existed and highlighted those artists who had pieces nominated in those years that are now no longer members...

    [let the lights dim]

    [cue the music - for me, I'm playing Christian Kane's "Thinking of You"]



    WOW, so many amazing artists have come through this event over the years, with some truly amazing pieces of artwork. I hope to see some more in the future, but for now, you all rock!!!

      So many of those people have inspired me over the years!!! I'm sad that they are no longer active in the fanart community! They surely are missed

            All of those guys were my heroes and my first inspirations to start making fanart myself. That's really great to see all of them here again, even in such way. Thank you Sayjay!

              I remember most of the artists on that list
              Marilyne & Galathea's work was always really inspiring in my opinion. And peace! I remember how much I loved her Buffy/Angel pieces, seems like a lifetime ago

                6 bloopers and still counting

                Oh yeah, I must give a special shout out to Galathea, Wendy, Marilyne, Slaygal and Matilda, because there's necesseraly a bit of their arts in mine, even now.

                  Wow what a brilliant idea Also, "Thinking of you", I love that song!
                  But now you're making me miss all the gals from Effulgent Maryline, who was the first of you I met, Deavon, Aldieb, Signe... It's also a great shame that Galathea and Smthblue aren't around anymore, I loved their art

                  In the end, we all are who we are, no matter how much we may appear to have changed.

                    I have a random wallpaper changer on and whenever a galathea, or marilyne or WENDY piece comes up I'm like, guys, where are you now??? I LOVE their art, and wish they were still arting.

                    If any of you are reading, we all heart you and your art!!
