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!

I bet you have seen people tell you about this, but someone did steal your artwork. roosevelt123.deviantart.com/ar…

Btw, though I'm not usually a pony fan, your art is actually extraordinary. Nice colour schemes.

Hey there, and congratulations on 100 images uploaded! You are now officially a hundred times more productive than me.

I've been waiting for a good time to write a sensible, well-formed comment, but work isn't letting up, so this is as good a time as any to write a rambling, poorly-formed salutation. ...Bonjour and exaltations to you, proficiently-deviceful art-person! Perfect.

Sadly, I haven't much to say in the way of news, except that art withdrawal is real and you should never try it. (Drawing Abstinence: Not Even Once.) So how have you been? Have you and Di taken over the United States yet? (I wouldn't know, since we've reluctantly moved back to Canada.) Are you two using the CIA's mind control machine to make Rarijack canon, or is that what you want me to think?/?///?//?

By the way, I recently edited down one of my favorite art videos from 6 minutes to 1 and 40 seconds and privately uploaded it, and it's pretty, er... unique, so if you have two minutes to spare, you might like it. Of course, you might want to sue me for damages to your free time. No refunds!

Hey there!

It seems that technically I'm at 99 images uploaded, as they count the one journal post I ever did as a "deviation" as well. Now that you've brought it to my attention, I feel like I should make the 100th image something special, but work has recently picked up and cut into my fan-art time.  Who knows though?

So Canada, eh?  Plenty of good things in Canada, including the people who make the pony show itself.   Still, sorry to hear you had to relocate!  Di continues her efforts to spread the word of RariJack near and far, at least when she manages to find some all-to-rare free time.  I, myself, remain a friendly observer.

Quite the video...  I love "How it's Made", but I must have missed that episode.  It does a fine job of showing the artistic process, and the creation of a high quality piece of art itself!

in any event, it's great to hear from you...  No need to wait for something profound to say.  I hope you find the time to get over your own art withdrawal as well!

Ha... that one of Derpy and Twilight is really cute!  No plans for requests or commissions at the moment, but one never knows.  Thanks for thinking of me regardless!

That one's the swing and a miss XD I love it. And I figured as much. You've said you mainly draw what you feel like drawing. With this, I've at least implanted the idea in your head! XD

From what I can see, they don't charge and link back to here so they're probably within the copyright terms.  Thanks though!

I thought I added you to my watch list a while back but that wasn't the case. For that I apologize, but at least it gives me an opportunity to say how awesome your art is :)

how would you like Trixie to get rainbow power

I'm not all that enamored with the Rainbow power, but it might be interesting to see it applied to other characters anyway.  Trixie would likely love it, certainly.

I've persisted through prior off seasons, so I suspect this one will be no different.  But yes...  Season 5 has been officially announced and is currently being produced, so there is more pony to come in 2015!  Thanks for the compliments!
