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
or 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!
