Emily Rabbit's current fixation on Wights (wraith-like creatures from fantasy literature) is one of the best genre art projects on Tumblr. As a whole, they incorporate some of the most intricate and evocative elements of fantasy game and character design, with a swirling mix of medievalism, esotericism, early human myth and, of course, babely ass-kickery.
They’re also remarkably, gorgeously drawn. For all the attention to symbolism and thematic content that usually accompanies fantasy art, Rabbit’s illustration possesses a strong sense of mastery and skill that challenges more simplistic gazing. Bright yet conservatively colored, each Wight is an awesome example confident feminist fantasy art that never sinks to pedantic sexualization to make its impact.
