Featured Fan Art: Wakaba


Welcome to another installment of Featured Fan Art...and Windows 7 was ITS idea!

Today's featured fan artist may well be known to PC gamers with a taste for things Japanese, as he (or she) is the creative mind behind Nanami Madobe, who is in turn the officially endorsed, highly moe-fied face of Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system.

To put it marketing-ly, Nanami Madobe...was his idea.

Going by the designation "Wakaba", this artist's style is refined and highly detailed, characterized by puffy cheeks and rounded smile, cheerful colors and shiny highlights. You can check out more of his art at his site, or get a taste of the cheer in our gallery below.

And remember, if you happen to be an awesome artist and feel like getting on an awesome website's front page, drop us a line and give us your details!
