Hello, welcome to the second weekly spotlight, right on time exactly seven days after the previous one! (It's been a long week >.>)
Today, we'd like to spotlight...
Gates McCloud is the creator of a whole range of comic series, all based in the CMC 10k universe. The story follows the Cutie Mark Crusaders and the new world they must live in - neverending war from all sides. The Elements have fallen to Discord, Celestia has been overthrown by King Sombra, and all the other characters from the show have also changed in interesting ways.
The style of the comics is similar to the vector style of the actual show, but Gates McCloud still manages to create incredibly original designs. The crystal ponies in particular look great with all the sharp, jagged features that have been added. Giving them a different speech bubble look is another interesting idea.
Because there is so much happening in CMC 10k, each chapter is able to cover entirely different aspects of the story, from prequels to additional storylines. Every page is very detailed and uses many varied poses and panel layouts which also add to the comic overall. The starting point of the whole comic can be found on the right ->
Gates McCloud was nominated by adamlhumphreys
...I found his related side comic The Shadow of Grief particularly interesting as an elaboration of Luna with her inner conversations with NMM among other things.
If you know an artist you think deserves to be spotlit, why not nominate them? Submit your nomination here
