May refer to artist's ideas or efforts which take a work above and beyond what would be accepted by the audience.A quote about bonus ideas: "Ah! My favorite word of all! While you are drawing, always think, 'What bonus ideas can I add to my drawing to make it look more brilliant, more cool, more absolutely totally amazing?' When you add bonus ideas, you are adding your own unique style to your picture! Some of my favorite examples of adding bonuses to drawings are the Find Waldo books by Martin Handford. He adds so many bonuses to his drawing that you can barely find his pal Waldo!" Mark Kistler, American TV artist / instructor. "The Twelve Renaissance Words of Drawing in 3-D," 1997.
