Description provided by commissioner :iconscarface271::

"If anyone who had been around in the early days of the Brony Fandom is seeing this image, there's a good chance they know the significance of it. For those who don't, allow me to explain. CSI-Madmax was one of the most popular brony fan artists back in the 2011-2014 days of the fandom. She had done lots of funny and cute comics and images over those years. From what I can gather, she also had an optimistic if humorous viewpoint when it came to Friendship Is Magic, as during 2013 when the fandom was being dramatic about Season 3, Alicorn Twilight and Equestria Girls, she kept on doing cute pony pictures and funny comics, some of which even poked fun at all the drama. She was one of the first pony artists who's work I had ever saw and gotten into as well. Sadly, in August 2014, she left a ambiguous but sad Deviantart Journal saying she would no longer be able to draw anything, and that she was stuck in a "involuntary Nomad lifestyle". She was never heard from again after that, and many people think that she ended up homeless. To me, this fandom has never been the same without her".

"I didn't find this out till a year after it happened. I had waited for any possible good news to come up regarding her, but that never happened. Eventually, I decided to commission this tribute picture for her. Unlike other popular bronies, Madmax has not gotten a tribute picture like this before, and I know that the reason for this is because we don't actually know if she's dead or alive. But we might never know, and I feel like she deserves some kind of tribute picture. I looked up an old interview with her {Linked below}, and she said her favorite ponies are Rarity, Lyra and the Royal Sisters. So I commissioned this picture with her pony-self being hugged by her favorite ponies. Heck, if she ever comes back someday, you could also see this as a "Welcome Back" picture. Anyone who doesn't know who Madmax was, I strongly urge you to look up her artwork. You can find a decent amount of it on her Deviantart page, while the entirety of her pony artwork is still up on Derpibooru to this day. And whoever uploads this to derpibooru, if you could also copy and paste this description in there, I would strongly appreciate that. And I hope that Madmax is happy and safe now, wherever she may be."

I use to watch her comics even before becoming a pegasister and it broke my heart when she said she was having problems. 
Im still wating for her to come back, but sadly, I dont think she would :c

I'm getting a little misty here. It's just so sad not knowing if she's safe or alive. I hope where ever she is, she knows how much people still care about her.

I honestly don't think I'd be a brony right now if it wasn't for her. Her comics were so damn funny and entertaining. From Pinkie Pie: Pokemon hunter to the Scott Pilgrim parody of Chryssi, Shinning, and Cadence to Fluttersy as mayor of New Leaf to Luna and her fan shipped off with the Two Stupid Dogs to the Church Of Luna (that cute disciple is still one of my all time favorite OCs-even though that was the only comic with her) and so many other hilarious comics she made me not ashamed to like pony stuff.

There are many other artists who led me to the fandom but Madmax was one that sticks with me the most. My biggest regret is that I didn't get further into the fandom until around the time she disappeared and was able to thank her.

Easily one of my favourite artists. Hey humour was among the best.

As someone who remembers madmax from back in the day, I thank you for this picture. I hope she does come back, some bright, sunny day.

I do remember that she made another DA account but with Pokemon fan art. But with a different name.
Scarface271 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2016
Do you remember the name of this account? I'm pretty curious as to what her Pokemon fanart was like. I didn't know of any none-pony fanart she did beforehand.
cajobif Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2016
I think I probably mixed-up with Soapie-Solar. He's bakuya-star now on DA
