Okay, after hearing from some people about the portraits I decided to create a special folder for them outside of "scraps" instead.  I originally drew them as just face doodles on the same page, where they were quite scraps worthy.  However, when I went to post them I decided to make up a frame for them, and suddenly they looked more like completed work.  I think I was giving some the wrong impression that I was looking down on them by calling them scraps instead of just thinking that someday I might decided to do something more elaborate with them.  I still might, but for now the framed versions are in my regular gallery.

My sincere apologies to anyone who is getting spammed with updates about these changes I've made...  Some actually new artwork will be coming soon.


Look at me!  Closing in on 2 years at this site and I'm finally writing my first journal entry and using folders beyond my "featured" one to showcase artwork.  Go me!

In any event, I thought I'd draw some attention to a series of simple pony portraits that I've started to upload to My Scraps Folder for those who don't follow such things from me.  Not quite as involved as the stuff that usually gets posted to my main folders, but still decent enough.  If you have a favorite character there's a chance I'll get around to doing an image of him/her/it... I enjoyed turning out the ones I've done so far, and so will likely do more during those stretches where I have free time for Fanart but no big ideas or don't want to get too caught up in something complex when real life might intervene. 

I've also posted some gift art there that I made for the fabulous WhiteDiamondsLtd

As for new, "Featured" folder work, I've got something coming for Applejack Appreciation Day which apparently will land on October 1st this year...  So look for that as the date looms closer.

That's about it for announcements...  I hope to be more active around here as we move out of summer and into fall, and especially as Season 4 starts up.  I'm looking forward to getting more pony, and more friendly interaction with the fandom!

Almost forgot, thanks for the llama :)
Over the past year I've been making a collection of, from my perspective, the best of the best 1920+ wallpaper format "hand drawn" [non vector] MLP art with an epic/actiony feel. I just realized how large a portion of it came from your gallery so I figured a massive THANK YOU FOR BEING AWESOME AND SHARING YOUR AWESOMENESS was in order. I tip my proverbial hat to you.

FELLOW FELLOW MLP FAN: I could use your counsel.

Recently I was able to fix and even improve on my old but trusty GRAPHIRE 3 Wacom digital pen. It was a nib issue:…

But I still find myself thinking about getting an Intuos Medium (not the Intuos Pro or Intuos Manga).…

I have asked my irl professional artist friends about it, but their input leaves me with..."inconclusive." They both say that a bigger tablet is better for "painterly" artists. I really don't know if I am painterly, but I have a hunch that I am going towards that direction.

But one of them states a disclaimer: One of the bg-artists of… uses a similar kind of tablet that I am using now. The GRAPHIRE 3 is most definitely small. And pressure sensitivity is hilariously sad at best. And yet this bg-artist can make very detailed backgrounds with it.

The GRAPHIRE 3 that I have now is ok. Years of working on it, so yeah, I'm pretty comfortable with it. But its sort of like, "Its all I know, so how do I know if a bigger, more advanced tablet would do me good" kind of situation.

We do not have the option of trying out the tablets in the shops here. So I am appealing to you guys to give me input.

Thanks for the llama!
