Unfortunatelly, nsfw arts can get twice as that, when the same quality pics are involved. That’s quite discouraging for safe artists. (Also, it’s enough to take a look at the amount of nsfw arts in the trending images. No fair chance for safe ones.)

Don’t worry about it, none of that disqualifies that image from being selected for being featured. It might lessen its chances, but it’s still fine.

Imalou has PLENTY of recognition; she’s of the Top 10 most popular pony artists in the world, if not Top 5, and officially working for Hasbro and becoming an official show guest at every convention that can afford to bring her. Imalou also has 2 Featured Images, one with over 1,000 upvotes and one with over 2,000.
Generally artists who are talented enough to get a Featured Image aren’t concerned about being out-voted on Derpibooru by NSFW content if they’re aware.
That said, NSFW images aren’t allowed to be Featured Images so that consideration isn’t even a factor.
The idea with Featured Images to my understanding is to give it to artists who are yet to have it where possible. Giving it to Imalou three times while there’s still several others without one is what would be unfair I would think.

What if we had three featured images instead of one?
One is shown, and there’s nearby a link to the other featured ones. While they are not directly visible, people would be interested to see what other images are really worth checking out.
Something like: “Featured Image (See More…)” instead of the current header above an image.
Clicking on “See More…” would open all three currently featured images.
(There could also be cycling, with a few seconds delay, for the shown image, so that all three get visible)
It would be like with trending ones, but chosen manually.
And three images wouldn’t be too difficult to maintain. And it would be easier to decide which images to feature, because if there are close choices, there would be no need to only choose one.
