Since 2005 I featured 144 artists in the course of 3 years (an average of one feature per week). After a hiatus of 2 years I restarted the project for a period of almost 8 months with 18 features (1 feature almost every 2 weeks). The last feature ended on the 24th of October 2010.



The art in this project is featured and displayed with permission of the artists. The rights to the works remain to the artists, do not repost or alter their art without their permission.
The artists who agree to be featured here, must be aware that they can't take their art back from the internet. The art is stored in an archive that will always serve as proof that it belongs to the artists.

The mission of this wiki is to share some of the fine art on Elftown with anyone who takes an interest in it.
It's a small gallery to browse around, get (more) exposure and meet each other.
If you're looking for constructive criticism you're in the wrong place. The features are picked because I like them, without any specific background of artistic expertise.
Whether or not an art piece will be featured is totally up to me and will not be put up for discussion.

My goal is to have a new feature every three (3) to five (5) weeks, but due to possible unforeseen circumstances, this number may vary.

If you want to create your own featured art wiki, after seeing this wiki, please at least let me know about it.
I enjoy seeing the idea being used and I also enjoy seeing more wonderful art :)
Therefore other art wikis may also be linked here.

Other featured art wikis:
- Elftown's Official Featured Art/ since 28th of May 2003 - present
- Akhirah's Featured Art by [akhirah]/ since 30th of November 2005 - 28th of January 2006

2007-12-24 [Sunrose]: Merry Christmas!

2008-01-11 [Daisy le Fleur]: Now that is fantastic.

2008-01-11 [Sunrose]: I agree :D

2008-01-11 [Galatea]: Everything she does just amazes me.

2008-01-29 [crowfeather]: Hey Sunrose.. I was wondering if I could list this wiki on mine that I'm working on ( Crowfeather's coloring book )

2008-01-29 [Sunrose]: It's an honour to me and in my opinion to the featured artists, that you like this wiki and their art enough to want to advertise it. And, my goal being to get the focus on them, more advertisement never hurts hehe *^^*

2008-01-29 [crowfeather]: lol not a problem.. you can post my wiki on here too if you want

2008-01-29 [Sunrose]: Are you going to feature coloured pieces? :)

2008-01-29 [Mekashef]: I see lower-back problems in that character's future.
Absolutely gorgeous, however.

2008-01-29 [Sunrose]: Forever youuuung :P

2008-01-29 [crowfeather]: I have [Triola]'s colored version of my water dragon up on one of the pages... as far as my own personal colored pieces, I'll just leave those to my profile page and my dA account

2008-02-01 [sequeena_rae]: Brilliant feature :D >.>

2008-02-02 [Sunrose]: Hehehehe :P

2008-02-10 [Jitter]: Oooh nifty wings :o <3

2008-02-10 [crowfeather]: okay that's just neat looking

2008-02-11 [Daisy le Fleur]: ^ The muscle definition is awesome.

2008-02-11 [Galatea]: I love this feature so very very much, if you all have looked at more of [Sedna]'s work you can see that she has come so very far in her artwork! I am just so very proud of her!! Thank you [Sunrose] for featuring her!

2008-02-11 [Sunrose]: I'll leave the judging of that to the experts, but I certainly admire this piece :D

2008-02-13 [Galatea]: Beautiful! And wonderful for this particular time of year. :) 

2008-02-13 [Sunrose]: I wish I had a bigger version though *^^*

2008-02-13 [Galatea]: Hmm, I can see why you might want one, especially of this one. The colors are so vivid! 

2008-02-13 [Sunrose]: I always want the biggest I can get hehe..
(eh IMAGE I mean :P)

2008-02-14 [Galatea]: LOL! Oh really? <img:44166_1164144907.gif> Ehm, back to artwork, yes I agree large version are the best and most versatile. Can you have the artist directly load the picture onto this page?

2008-02-14 [Sunrose]: If possible I even do it for them, but I didn't find it anywhere else. He's a busy guy too :)

2008-02-14 [Galatea]: Ahh, pity.

2008-02-14 [Sunrose]: He uploaded it! I guess he must have read this :D

2008-02-14 [Fingolfin]: I did! I figured I'd better, don't want to get into trouble and beside bigger is better.... you can see way more detail and all of that.

2008-02-14 [Sunrose]: Sneaky! x)
I agree *glomps* :D

2008-02-21 [Grandamelf]: I ran across a photo of a rose on a comment site and it reminded me of the Photograph you had of a rose in the sunshine! It was one of my favorites, so I thought I would drop by and see it again, but you have taken it down!
Hope you are enjoying yourself, that is such a lovely photo of you and your niece! Best wishes, [Gramdamelf]<img:stuff/mood32-gif.gif>

2008-02-21 [crowfeather]: Oooo That is so pretty ^__^

2008-02-22 [Sunrose]: [Grandamelf]: You can find all my old features on my archive.
And pictures I have taken you can ask about in private if you want :)


2008-02-23 [spincrus]: Viking's work is incredible. Could it also be uploaded as a walpaper-size image?

2008-02-23 [Viking]: What size would you prefer?

2008-02-23 [ally]: 1059x686 pixels but no bigger than 4 mb

2008-02-23 [Viking]: Bah...You should be able to resize the "original" at Smugmug if you just want a little one like that.

2008-02-23 [ally]: I want it postersized : P

2008-02-23 [spincrus]: I use mine 1152x864 but a 1240x1024 version would be perfect for everyone I think, people can just adjust it to their needs :D Thanks!

2008-02-23 [Viking]: OK. I'll upload some wallpaper versions later today.

2008-02-23 [Sunrose]: Awesome *^^*

2008-02-24 [spincrus]: Awesome^2

2008-02-25 [Acronymous]: Awesome^3 (XD)

2008-03-18 [Ms. Steel]: Wow, thanks! :-)

2008-03-18 [Sunrose]: It's you I should thank, my first feature since almost 3 weeks!

2008-03-19 [Ms. Steel]: hehe!

2008-03-19 [sequeena_rae]: :D (oh dear, didn't notice that Jitter nominated it too :P)

2008-03-19 [Sunrose]: Me neither, until I put it up :P

2008-03-22 [Jitter]: This is sooooooo pretty :o

2008-03-30 [sequeena_rae]: That's AMAZING!

2008-03-30 [Sunrose]: :D

2008-03-30 [Jitter]: O___O I bet that's all made with dodge& burn <3

2008-03-30 [Sunrose]: I wouldn't be able to tell, but it looks great :D

And a general note: I've altered the disclaimer a bit, because I'd like to preserve having all the features in my archives.
I don't own any rights, except your permission to display it there.
This in light of one artist asking a feature to be removed :(
If you have a problem with this disclaimer, please let me know!

2008-03-30 [Jitter]: I'm perfectly fine with it ;)

2008-03-30 [Sunrose]: :D

2008-03-30 [sequeena_rae]: Me too :P

2008-04-06 [Lady Evangeline]: Thanks sooo much for nominating me!

2008-04-06 [Triola]: You're welcome :3

2008-04-07 [Ms. Steel]: Wow, lovely. Markers?

2008-04-07 [Linderel]: Looks more like coloured pencils to me.

2008-04-07 [Triola]: I agree, except on the wall and the sky, there I think it looks more like some kind of water colour paint :) maybe a case of mixed media?

2008-04-07 [Linderel]: Possibly. Probably. :o
But what boggles me is the realism. The reflection! Oi! Almost like a photograph, except obviously not xD

2008-04-07 [Triola]: I knowws! I especially love the top of the table <3

2008-04-07 [Ms. Steel]: I just thought markers because I've worked with them in a similar capacity. :-) The reflections and the layers tipped me off...possibly pencils over it all.

2008-04-07 [Triola]: I'm definitely going for mixed media on this one, although I admit I might be wrong :P

2008-04-07 [Lady Evangeline]: lol! well, it IS mixed media. prismacolor markers (which bleed like crazy cause it wasn't marker paper) and colored pencils and chalk pastels to add the highlights and some of the textures. :)

2008-04-07 [Ms. Steel]: Marker paper is great to have, indeed...I've had some luck with a good quality bristol board, too. Anything but marker paper saps those expensive markers dry right quick, though!

2008-04-08 [Lady Evangeline]: yup. I've found that prismacolor markers work pretty well on almost anything, but if you're gonna use chartpack (which blend nicely but bleed like crazy) then you're gonna need special paper.

2008-04-09 [Mekashef]: Wow.
Seriously, wow.

2008-04-12 [Linderel]: [Dint] <3

2008-04-12 [Dint]: Wow! Thanks for nominating me! It's like a part of myself is now complete. XD

2008-04-12 [Sunrose]: LOL x)

2008-04-15 [Galatea]: Ooo yesh! Congratulations Dint!! I love your work! Great selection nominators!

2008-04-27 [Thrivis]: Thank you so much for the feature! And congrats Dint, that's a great painting and I like that you recorded yourself drawing it. :D It's fun to watch.

2009-04-06 [jaraden]: absolutly amazing art featured here!! each artist totally deserves the recognition and praise they get!!!!!!!! great job kids!!!

2009-04-07 [Sunrose]: I'll try to get back on track with this thing :P

2009-04-07 [Viking]: Yay!

2009-04-07 [Sunrose]: Whoo a fan =D

2009-04-07 [Linderel]: <3

2009-04-07 [jaraden]: damn straight i is a fan!! i is a fan of any fantastic artist featured on elftown!!! there are so many and so few who seem to take the time to appreciate them!!!!!!!!!!

2009-04-08 [Calico Tiger]: w00t!

2009-09-20 [Anvile75]: I didn't give the word to allow my work in this. I'm not mad, just bothered that someone just took it without asking.

2009-09-20 [Sunrose]: If it is in the gallery, then you gave me permission. You should check your 'sent messages' to me :)

2009-09-23 [Anvile75]: That's a lie. I haven't authorized anything. I don't care if you use it, but you didn't ask.

2009-09-23 [Hedda]: [Anvile75]: You have either a bad memory or someone else is using your account. See [72734447@] and [72734495@].

(Search done after request of [Sunrose])

2009-09-23 [Sunrose]: Thanks :)

2009-09-26 [Kaimee]: Bad lying sunrose! :O You should totally un-feature her art, you lying she-devil! D:<

2009-09-29 [Sunrose]: Tempting idea, it's a male btw :P

2009-09-29 [Kaimee]: Oops sorry, I couldn't tell, the sandy-vagina-attitude was what tricked me I guess :)

2009-09-29 [Sunrose]: *grin* =P

2009-10-01 [crowfeather]: O_o

2009-10-01 [Kaimee]: o_O

2009-10-02 [Triola]: o_o

2009-10-02 [Sunrose]: [Anvile75] is going to kill you all.

2009-10-02 [crowfeather]: *blinkity blinkblink*

2009-10-03 [Kaimee]: That should be fun :)

2010-02-23 [Sunrose]: New feature, at last :D

2010-02-23 [de Morte]: Five year ani coming up!

2010-02-23 [Sunrose]: Seriously :D

2010-02-23 [Sunrose]: So, a question for all of you:
Normally I would ask an artist permission beforehand, but this costs a lot of time when they don't respond.
I've seen on Artsie's wikis that she'd post an image, notify the artist and only remove it when the person objects. I think this method is faster to post images on the wiki, but might lead to having to remove a lot of images in hindsight (and thus create half empty galleries).
I want to find some quicker way to post images here though, does anyone have some tips? :)

2010-02-23 [de Morte]: Ask their permission and post a link to the picture until they respond?

2010-02-23 [Sunrose]: But what if they take a long time to respond and then say they don't want it? In the mean time I might have featured new pieces and will have to remove theirs from the gallery..

2010-02-23 [de Morte]: Include a statement like 'unless otherwise posted, I will feature your art on sfaa. If you do not want your artwork featured in this wiki please reply ASAP'
Or you could pick a couple of pieces that you like and post them as they respond...

2010-02-23 [Sunrose]: I used to just send a few messages at once and would feature the quickest replier. I just would like something that works faster, without getting more problems :P

2010-02-23 [SilverFire]: Maybe it's just my contrary nature, but if someone featured my art, *then* asked, I'd say no just because they didn't ask first. <_< Surely though if you send out several messages asking people if you can feature their art at the same time, you end up with a queue of art you can feature, right?

2010-02-23 [Viking]: *agrees with [SilverFire]*

2010-02-23 [Sunrose]: Well yea, it just often takes a lot of time as opposed to when I can just take artpieces whenever I want :P

2010-02-24 [Kaimee]: Just be an art stealer and say you made them all so we have to have a long, convoluted battle to prove that you didn't, and in the meantime you keep them >.>

My tired brain really does think this is good advice O.o

2010-02-25 [Sunrose]: Uhuh uhuh :P

2010-02-25 [Fingolfin]: I wouldn't go saying that you made them, but say you got permission. You can even make fake messages that support your claim of getting permission. *thumbs up*

But seriously, people are fools if they don't want to be featured!!! Why my greatest accomplishment on ET was getting featured. =)

2010-02-25 [Daisy le Fleur]: Mine too ;)

2010-02-26 [Sunrose]: lol :D

2010-02-28 [Daisy le Fleur]: Wow that's a great feature!

2010-02-28 [Sunrose]: *^__^*
Maybe a silly request, but it would perhaps be cool if everyone who likes this feature to add themselves to the visitor list of the artist. The artist gets an audience and I get to see how many people are liking it (and following the features).. *^^*

2010-02-28 [Ms. Steel]: Can do!

2010-02-28 [Sunrose]: lol, secret stalker :P

2010-02-28 [Ms. Steel]: That's me. :-)

2010-03-01 [Sunrose]: It seems a number of people have actually done this heh *^_^*

2010-03-01 [Linderel]: I have automagical adding turned on. :P

2010-03-01 [Sunrose]: Me too =P

2010-03-04 [Chel.]: awww!

2010-03-14 [Sunrose]: I need more fans; I want to top the chart of having most fans and that requires 18+ fans :P

2010-03-14 [Triola]: ... what's in it for me? :P

2010-03-14 [Linderel]: I used to be at the top when that feature was still fairly new...

2010-03-14 [Sunrose]: @Trio: eternal fame on the fanlisting page? :P

@Lin: ahwz, ...well I still wants it :p

2010-03-16 [Sunrose]: 150th feature YAYyayYAY! ^__^
Plus, with 12 fans I only need 7 more to be on top :P

2010-03-17 [Fingolfin]: I like this 150th feature, it's really quite awesome. *thumbs up*

2010-03-17 [Sunrose]: Haha you're so biased :P

2010-03-17 [Daisy le Fleur]: Oh wow, I didn't realize you were putting up a diff. piece of ours for the Feature.. haha, thought you were using the old one originally nominated. Nice! =)

2010-03-17 [Fingolfin]: Who me!? Not at all! =D It's an amazing collection there. I love [Daisy le Fleur] 'Trickles' very nice. All of them are really nice to though. =)

2010-03-17 [Daisy le Fleur]: *bows graciously* Thank you!

2010-03-17 [Sunrose]: Yes, the special edition shows another piece :D
I have two reasons for that:
1. the original piece was already featured, so it wouldn't bring something new if I put it up again
2. at times I find myself split having to choose one piece when there are several that I like and this way I can show more than one..
And a third reason now that I think of it:
a lot of artists rather have new art than old art featured and they made quite a bit of art during those 2 years :p

This feature was a bit more difficult because 45 of them were featured 2 years ago and not all artists are active anymore. I tried to pick artists who're still here, but also considered that featuring a piece might cause for an artist to return.

2010-03-29 [Sunrose]: Don't forget to nominate on SFAN and help me out ;P

2010-03-29 [Viking]: *needs to go house zapping again to find things to nominate*

2010-03-29 [Sunrose]: Whee :D

2010-03-29 [Yuriona]: *tacklehugs* Thank you! <3

2010-04-01 [Yncke]: That is a brilliant feature! :D

2010-04-01 [Sunrose]: *grins* :D

2010-04-01 [Jitter]: Hahaha this is fantastic!

2010-04-02 [Daisy_Sandybanks]: Wow, awesome feature! :D

2010-04-02 [Cassave]: It's a "tricaxle"! 8D

2010-04-03 [Balthezar Arith]: hehe, I like to ride it around on halloween. 

2010-04-19 [Aliz]: Thanks so much *_____*

2010-05-09 [Kaimee]: love the current pic (:

2010-05-09 [Sunrose]: Heh it reminds a bit of the stuff you make ^^'

2010-05-09 [Kaimee]: maybe that's why I likes it? >.> Hehe, I don't actually see the connection though, apart from me liking pretty hair x)

2010-05-10 [Future Dictator]: Your stuff has very nice hair

2010-05-11 [Kaimee]: So does yours :P

2010-05-11 [Triola]: Omg, soulmates!

2010-05-11 [Sunrose]: xD

2010-05-13 [Sunrose]: I just now noticed that I have 6 more features than Mainstreet does wh00t :P

2010-05-13 [Chimes]: We're lazy/busy :P

2010-05-13 [Sunrose]: Yea well, even so :p

2010-05-14 [Kaimee]: I noticed that too! xD I'm not actually a featured art person but I'm trying to rectify it anyway! :O
You're stealing our nominations biatch >.>

2010-05-14 [Sunrose]: You're stealing mine!!! :P

2010-05-15 [Kaimee]: Nuh uhhhhh! Plus, we have legitimacy on our side :O

2010-05-15 [Sunrose]: I have more watchers on my side :OO

2010-05-15 [Kaimee]: ...true x(

2010-05-15 [Sunrose]: :D

2010-10-25 [Kaimee]: None! D:

2010-10-25 [Sunrose]: omfg :P

2010-10-26 [Kaimee]: I'm sad now :(

2010-10-26 [Mortified Penguin]: Then try some of the Happy Sunshine Soup over at Bob's Diner! Now made with real sunshine! (WARNING: Happy Sunshine Soup is several million degrees Fahrenheit and will cause instant, spontaneous combustion and/or violent, painful, internal hemorrhaging.)

2010-10-26 [Kaimee]: Or not :)

2011-04-26 [Akayume]: *poke*

2011-04-27 [Sunrose]: :O!

2011-04-27 [Akayume]: *poke poke*

2011-04-29 [Pillowthief]: Gah!

2011-05-06 [Mortified Penguin]: Fah!

2011-05-06 [Viking]: Eah!

2011-05-06 [Mortified Penguin]: Dah!

2011-05-06 [Sunrose]: omg stalkers!

2011-05-06 [Akayume]: And lots of them. :O

2011-05-06 [Viking]: Combobreaker >=C

2011-05-06 [Triola]: Ignore them.


2011-05-06 [nehirwen]: Bah!

2011-05-06 [Chimes]: Pah!

2011-05-06 [Linderel]: Lah!

2011-05-06 [Sunrose]: Aah!

2011-05-06 [Akayume]: Giiiiirl, if you have time to be silly you have time to do this! XP *poke poke*

2011-05-06 [Sunrose]: It's midnight now, I was just catching up before going to sleep :P

2011-05-06 [Akayume]: Dang time zones. :P Although, to be fair, I was on at 2 a.m. my time this morning. DX

2011-05-06 [Sunrose]: But I have a busy day tomorrow :P

2011-05-06 [Akayume]: Weelllll... Poo on you. :O

2011-05-06 [nehirwen]: Ewww!

2011-05-08 [Pillowthief]: Loo! Go to the loo!

2014-10-22 [Yncke]: Yay! A new Sunny feature! :D

2014-10-22 [Sunrose]: Wheeemz =D

2014-10-23 [Sagacious Turkey]: Meh, I've seen better.

2014-10-23 [Sunrose]: Nominate them on SFAN! ;)

2014-10-27 [Sagacious Turkey]: NO.

Why'd you feature that stupid thing anyway? :P

2014-10-27 [Sunrose]: What answer are you looking for? :p

2014-10-28 [Sagacious Turkey]: A flattering one would work fine.

2014-11-02 [Sunrose]: New piece, a little late for Halloween but only because I had to wait for permission :P

2014-11-02 [Sagacious Turkey]: Psh, only losers wait for permission.

2014-11-20 [Sunrose]: I'm okay with that :P

2015-10-01 [Kalma]: Does anyone know why Sunrose got banned?

2015-10-02 [Mortified Penguin]: She didn't really. She got [SilverFire] to ban her, because she didn't want to come back. And, of course, that was because of me.

2022-02-04 [Sunrose]: Oh lordy, so self-absorbed :P

2022-02-05 [Mortified Penguin]: Shh. Don't question my narrative.

2022-02-05 [Sunrose]: I question everything about you, so maybe you ARE the reason..
