Fluttershy (Pony Attempt #1)

Fluttershy (Pony Attempt #1)

So... I've been a Pony fan for a long time now. I am a brony, except for the fact that no matter how many times I hear it is a gender neutral term I have trouble using it to describe myself. But I don't wanna get into that discussion now!

Anyways, I went to Bronycon, and it blew me away. I left so pumped; it was hard to sleep the next few nights. But then it hit me; I draw a good bit, so why not ponies, too? And, to that end, here we are!

Forgive me for not updating sooner. I have to scan my sketchbook; I've been working exclusively in ink instead of pencil but haven't gotten around to scanning those images yet. Sorry!

Anyway, this is one of my first pony attempts, so take it as such. Ink on paper, scanned, and colored in Photoshop. Didn't come out great, in my opinion, but that's what practice is for!

A Bulk Update

Sorry for going missing for so long! Sometimes I let scanning and editing my images for the site get way behind. But yesterday, I met someone, and was very inspired to get my act in order! These are all from months ago, but they might be new to you, depending on if you've seen my actual sketchbook or not. So enjoy!

And today I learned this version of Drupal can't support the # sign in file names. Lovely. Well, actually, I guess that does make sense, when you think about it, what with HTML and all. But sanity checking the inputs, anyone? Protect me from myself, damnit!Border Collie A #1: Working on new characters. Poor girl, she doesn't even have a name yet! But she does have a pretty dress...

A Dolphin for Dawn: A request/gift for my friend Dawn. I've never drawn a dolphin before, but I think it came out pretty well. Dolphins are funny looking when you look at them closely... but then again, I tend to say that about almost every animal I draw for the first time ;)  I know, dolphins don't have eyelashes or, for that matter, tail rings. But this one does. So deal with it! ::laughs:: I will say, this was fun to do!A Dolphin for Dawn: A request/gift for my friend Dawn.

Merry Belated Christmas!

Merry Christmas, two days late!

So, um, yeah... ::blushes:: I had kinda meant to post these pictures before the holiday, but I was so busy I kinda never got around to it... my fault! Hope it's not too late! Here they are:

Roxanne Christmas: A fun, silly Christmas image.  Funny story: my whole idea in drawing this was to draw a character wearing a Santa hat.  After I finished drawing, put my stuff away, and stood up, I realized I had forgotten to draw the hat!  The whole reasons I had drawn the picture in the first place!  Oh well.  Thought about adding it, but I think it's okay as it is.Roxanne Christmas: A fun, silly Christmas image. Funny story: my whole idea in drawing this was to draw a character wearing a Santa hat.

Merry Christmas, but...: Merry Christmas, but if you ever make me wear this again...  Colleen before Christmas.  I do have a feeling this is how she would react, especially if she was in a bad mood.  Other times, she'd wear it willingly...  Can you believe I almost forgot the hat in this one, too?  Damn.  But the image wasn't finished, but I found a place to put it ;-).Merry Christmas, but...: Merry Christmas, but if you ever make me wear this again... Colleen before Christmas.

I did it!

Today is Veteran's Day / Armistice day, a day I know today is usually to celebrate peace. But this day, it was slightly different: I finally did it, did what many have thought almost impossible. I had to leave my NES on for almost 2 weeks, but finally, on 11-11-11, at 3:23 PM, I beat Ninja Gaiden. Huzzah! A game even the AVGN couldn't beat (at least in his tribute review)!

Every time I close my eyes, I still see all of Act VI in my head. You must replay it So. Many. Times. Gah, stupid eagles and monkeys!

I know I'm hardly the first, and that the first game is no Ninja Gaiden III, but dammit, I'm happy with myself right now. Perseverance works! (Should I say that procrastination works? Either way, the little red light on the NES almost seemed to be taunting me every night as I went to sleep...)

Photos of the moment below. Sorry for the cell phone pics of a TV, but I had to grab my phone (the closest thing to me) to record this moment.

And now the NES is off for a well deserved rest; it did me proud, never glitched once. And then, after a break, I can finally play some other games. Once again, huzzah!

Edited to add: And see you next!

Two drawings I did of a fox girl in a revealing outfit. I wanted to draw most of the body, and actually started the upper one first, but only did a basic body outline before I realized she wouldn't fit (that is not a double entendre, you dirty minded person you). So I drew the second one. The next day, I felt like going back and finishing the first, so here you go, a zoomed in and zoomed out version of the same pic. Enjoy!

Sketchbook Update, 8/28/2011

Last day of the continuous sketchbook updates, as I'm finally through that which I've scanned. I'll try to keep up better in the future. And maybe get around to my back library of images!
