A good day to you, dear interstellar traveler! Take your time, feel yourself at home and be sure to browse through the collection of art of various media, not necessarily done with the infamous squid ink to be perfectly frank.
Hello there again dear followers! There is over 1000 of you - which make me extremely happy to be sure - but then I would absolutely love to see you on my artblog as well… I know, I know, forcefeeding you this link might be stale, but if you really enjoy the ponies you see here, I am quite confident you will like the artwork you can find there as well ;) So, do please, join me there as well!
Commission: Cecil Eclipse - 2014
This time something on the side - yeap, finally tackled my commissions an I reckon it’s a good time to get5 into them more and more to cross them off the list and open commission list once again for anypony in need of some artwork! ;) Had fun painting this one, even if the tipped mane was a pain :D
Bam! Another big time work, took me three evenings in total, that is about 12 hours of work poured into one piece of artwork… From my perspective, totally worth it, as it was a fun challenge to draw something so out of the ordinary! Usually I am not a big fan of all this strange, different, fanmade species of ponies, the more curious and quirky they are, the more scrunchy I get… But when I saw the design and idea for Shark/Changeling pony posted by Longfellow, I knew I will have to draw it and render it fully! And so, this is the effect.
Be sure to visit the blog of the pony that own this sharkling! Longfellow (http://longfellowthesharkling.tumblr.com) is a really nice guy, if I recall well, his blog work mostly as an Ask Blog for quite a happy family of /very/ unusual ponies, so if you are into asking something curious a bunch of questions, this is surely a good place to enter! So don’t be a stranger and click that link above, ponies ;)
Sketches from today stream! Some of them are already being rendered :3 Stay tuned for more!
So this happened! After three longer sessions of streaming and some before that in the darker times, let’s a Changeling be born from the ashes of the Sketches Request Stream - time to cross him off my ‘to-do’ list at last - it was actually really fun to draw this one - not only had quite an unique color scheme but also a changeling of a male character is quite a new thing for me to tackle and I believe I managed to do quite okay ;) Of course, time to introduce this character - the name is Blaze Fog(http://foggydownzydoo.tumblr.com) - and when I have little if none to say about the character itself (*a charm of request work!*) I can at least say my hot Thank You to the mod of this blog, who restlessly follow my streams and stay with me for hours there so I don’t feel too lonely! Thank you for that, man, it’s really neat and nice and uplifting.
So, I hope you enjoy this little piece of work and I hope you guys will at least take a look at this great guy blog ;)
And here is the effect of the first stream! Okay, okay… It is a giftart. But a bit unusual one, since it wasn’t picked by me, nor it is even an ask blog as far as I know! Still, it was an older request by one of my faithful followers on the stream, and I had no way to say no to making this - a picture of Sheepy Pony for Sheepy! Quite amazing artist of the ponydom and beyond, active, funny, delitghtful to talk with - truly a great example of how nice tumblrpones can be. So don’t be a slacker and visit her right now - http://miss-sheepy.tumblr.com !
Hope you guys Like it ;)

Oh my gawd ;u; I almost never get any, you know, arts, trades or features thanks to this blog not having a pony character to draw … Mostly XD But as we can see, the cutest darn goat in the universe do not mind and still manage to melt us down with adorableness and include, well, PonyGiftArt XD THANK YOU. Brightened my night ;)
So this was a lucky coincidence! For the first giftart since coming off my hiatus I really had little idea who should get the treatment considering I was out of the tumblrpone activity for quite a long time and so asked people on stream for some requests… And this pony appeared! Why it’s a lucky conicidence? Because author of this character was already on my ‘to draw’ list from the last OC!
So I took this new one and go on with it, and hey, it was lot of fun. So, meet Lightwave (http://lightwavepony.tumblr.com/) who is a, well… Space pony of some miraculous sort! Still, the character design is simple, clean yet effective, the robust, glowing mane and tail being the main focus point of the pony and it does him good to be sure. The blog is active, have unique and quite crisp art style that many will surely love and enjoy and the mod, as far as I can see from the posts, is a really nice, hard working person that - and that is super important! - improved vastly on the art front in last year, to a point it really seem like tons and tons of hard work paying off is humongous jump in quality and skills. Kudos for that!
So yes, from time to time, as you all know, instead of the good old signal boosting I find myself fidgeting to do a fanart simply for a blog I really, really enjoy. I think every artist in this fandom gets such feeling once every time in a month and well, I don’t fight it, I embrace it.
So sure, today guests, Crackpot (http://ask-crackpot.tumblr.com) definitely do not need any signal boosting considering how big it is, how much fan it already have and I am dead sure majority of my followers knows this pony and the spectrum of other characters from this blog quite well! So even if it doesn’t qualify for the PGA ‘signal boosting’ idea I just had to draw it, because, well…
Ask Crackpot is one of the rare examples of an exemplary Pony Ask Blog. It’s great on every field really. Let’s start with the art of a very high quality, clean, crisp, with its own, unique style – a true pleasure to the eye. It is surely one of the many features contributing heavily to the blog success! Bah, even the blog layout itself is deliciously designed! But even good art wouldn’t kick off so well without great characters, and this blog have’em all, all great thought OC’s that have both great visualizations, characters to match and lively interactions with everyone and everything that we can see in the setting. The blog, for one that is well known, is perfectly clear of any tumblr drama, so (*sadly!*) wide spread in this fandom! Updates arrive quite often, the author have good contact with the fans and everything works smoothly!
Basically, if you are thinking about making an Ask Blog, you can look through Ask Crackpot and take notes about how to run one ;)
So, I hope the author will like this little piece of fanart and keep on doing this great job.
It’s always fun to work on a piece for a new blog that I feel in the guts will grow into something really, really nice. It’s such a selfish little delight to feel and think that the author of such blog will enjoy the little gift in form of art, the signal boosting… All that love! And so it was a lot of fun, despite working through raging insomnia, to draw this little cutie, a sweet character from a blog still smelling of freshness that depite being ‘short on the market’, so to speak, is already lovingly active!
Say hello to Sunset Spring (http://ask-sunset-spring.tumblr.com), a young mare unicorn whose special talent and skills are about relationship, and there is no suprise that her whole business is helping ponies with their ongoing relationships or hooking them up, fixing dates and overall, helping them finding their significant others. The character is sweet, the drawing style is charming and most importantly, the blog is really active and seems it will stay that way! Superb!
For the author of the blog - I wish you mostly endurance! It’s easy to start an ask blog, it’s hard to keep it going for longer than a few months - don’t give up, keep on going as long as you have fun with it, play with your characters and draw, draw, draw! :)
You know what to do, my lovely followers - check her out and follow, if you find it fancy!
