aotd: “Lady Emnity” by Apricot Mantle

Aint it Cool News had a contest a little while before the Crazy4Cult 2 show, and the winner of the contest would be able to have his/her work in the show. This was done also with the I Am 8 Bit show and some really great work came out it. The same was true with this contest. One of my favorite pieces was from a Los Angeles based artist that goes by the name Apricot Mantle.

It looks like all of his works are colored pencil on toned paper. Not only are the layout and poses dynamic, such as this one shown, but the colors are unreal. This piece looks so amazing. I look forward to seeing more work from this artist, and will surely have his work on the site here many more times.
He has no homepage as of yet, but you can head over to his profile to check out the rest of his work.
