Luna with Lavender
Lavender smells nice.

But the lavender flowers that I know don't hang/creep like the flowers in the show.

I went a bit looser with this one style wise.

Celestial Hugs
Celestia hugs are the best. Those things have ended wars.

I was supposed to be painting something else but I wasn't able to get into it. So instead I decided to paint a old doodle I had left over from mother's day, the hug is also somewhat inspired by the Celestia, Twilight and Spike hug in the first episode of season. Celestia's hair is very fun.

Interwebz on a Bench

This commission is for :iconmimimatsu: and it's of his oc Interwebz.

 

It was fun to do a modern tech pony. She has a very urban chic design, it was very interesting to paint.

 

 I hope MimiMatsu likes it!

Have a Cool Treat
This is a commission for :icontornadopilot2: of his character Cool Treat working(?) in an ice cream parlor! Is she passing out ice cream or eating it herself?

Just one more of life's many mysteries.

It was really fun to do, I hope tornadopilot2 likes it. Cool Treat's has an interesting design with a lot of light colors so it was fun painting her.

I wish I had an ice cream... It's really hot and humid in the swamp lands of Virginia.

Hearing From You
It's nice to hear from an old friend.

I started the concept for this one when it was cold and winter-y. Now it is hot. I don't know what happened.

And it's Easter.

Happy Easter! :dummy:

It's been a long time since I posted a journal.

 

I've been struggling with the same thing I had been two years ago when I made the last journal post. I'm still trying to improve my art output.  I don't have much trouble studying art, but it's always hard to take the time to sit down and *do* art. I usually don't have trouble doodling/sketching but I have trouble sitting down and finishing a piece. Like if I put one hour in it and don't like where the image is going, I just abandon the picture instead of slogging through and finishing it. On the one hand this is a good thing, healthy self-criticism is important. But on the other this means that because I leave so many images as roughs I don't get to really practice the techniques and skills it takes to *really* finish a painting. Or at least get it to a presentable level. Even if the base image isn't that great concept or composition-wise, it can still be used as practice. Getting an illustration to a presentable level (cleaning it up, adding details.etc) is a set of skills and know how that needs to be honed and practiced on it's own.  

 

But anyways, I am going to try to post an image a couple of times a week instead of once every week or two. It will still be mostly pony or pony related but there may be some other things seeping in. But do not worry, there will always be pony.

I had a pretty good birthday. I made a cake and ate it, listened to music and drew some stuff. Honestly not that much happened, but I enjoyed it. I guess I'm just getting old.
