Apple Twist Tasting Sweets
Another OC request. This one was requested a long, long time ago by :icontwinbird:. I'm not sure if they still want it or not, but no request is being left behind! No matter how ancient, they are all getting done, gosh darn it.

Anyway, Apple Twist is the name of :icontwinbird:'s OC. The first thing I think about when I hear Apple Twist is the food, so I wanted to paint Apple Twist eating an apple twist, but then I decided, why not have her eating all of the sweets! So there ya go.

She's probably the type of pony who takes a bite out of everything and then puts it back in the package. *shudders*
Royal Generosity
I got the idea for this one two weeks ago when it snowed. I took the dog out and had a good time. But the best part was oddly how cold and damp the house felt. Perfect for sleeping under covers. It was very nice and inspiring.

Since I had several days off I wanted to paint ponies. Sadly I didn't finish it in time and now the snow has melted and been replaced with cold mud. But I finally finished it up this weekend so here it is, Princess Platinum and Clover the Clever!
Jennabun on a Eighth Note

Just what it says on the tin, this one is for :iconje-nny: who requested that I draw her OC Jennabun a few many months ago. I hope she likes it!

 Her OC is cute and it was nice to do something relaxing over the holidays. 2016 was a very weird year and it's best to end it with some pony.

Happy New Years!

Will Save Equestria 4 Hugs

No one knows what happened to the last person who hugged Discord.

It has been a long time since I finished anything worth uploading. Not only have I been busy at work I have been distracted by... numerous things of the familial kind. But I have been trying to get back into the swing of things. Nothing like painting ponies to put things in perspective after all.


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.

uh... sorry to ask, but do you take requests? I saw this and I was wondering...

Have an awesome day! :D

It depends on what the request is, go ahead and send me a PM about it. :D
I should warn you though, very detailed requests will usually be turned down and requests may take a long time to complete.
