some of the many pieces wonderful artists are submitting for this project.
Just want to give you guys a little taste~
If you are interested in participating, let me know. (there is a cost involved for printing.)
There is a little time left before i send everything to the printers
so many pretty pictures to collect. those of you at bronycon, look out for these. ive got a couple in there too, but after seeing all these great pics im kinda feeling inadequate. all the better for you folks!
Hey I wanted to ask if there was a pony named Trade Winds in your story anywhere? I thought there was.
I dont recall specifically ever mentioning one. Not one of mine anyway. maybe a guest star?
Have things been going alright lately? That last post didn't seem to be about anything good.
I’m fine, by all rights things are going great right now, there’s lots of big things going on. buying/repairing a house, moving, family over, all sorts of stuff. its just stressful and Im having trouble saying the right things these days. keep seem to be putting people off when i’m not trying to, or getting irked by things that normally wouldn’t bother me. and its been going on for long enough that im pissing myself off with it. just cant seem to do anything im actually satisfied with right now, or moreover, cant seem to do anything that satisfies anyone else. its not particularly blog-related, but im sure its bleeding into it somewhere
its been an off night. preceded by an off….month
When I go out to the car in the morning and put the key in the ignition, I’m reasonably sure its going to turn on when I turn it. When I turn the wheel left and right, I take for granted that the vehicle will turn in the appropriate direction by the appropriate amount. In short: I know how to drive.
But I still don’t know how to draw. I cant draw an eye the same way every time, or make my character’s wings look consistent in every scene. I forget to do this, or I overdo that. I make errors, and I do so fairly constantly. I do my best to avoid them of course, but if there’s some sort of ‘level’ you hit where you suddenly know how to draw all the things in your head, I certainly haven’t landed there. All I can do is give it my best shot, and hope each new shot is a little better than the ones that came before it. I keep trying, and I don’t think that’s a criminal act.
It seems a shame that so much fan hatred is tied into an artist being ‘good’ or ‘bad’. I can understand it of course, its one of the only things anyone has that they can actually point to as evidence for their discontent, but I don’t think anyone out here is actively TRYING to draw poorly. For the most part, we all do the best we can in the time we have available to us. We’re all out here trying to do a good job by our peers. Some attempts succeed, some fail, but the attempt itself is worth commendation. And another attempt!

I’d always wondered how long the backlog lag was on MLPartconfessions, I mean I imagine they get friggen swamped. I submitted this one about two months ago if I recall correctly. XD actually forgot I’d done it
So, in case anyone was wondering, this is what I’ve been up to these past few weeks, and why I haven’t been posting very often!
Im just one of many awesome artists on this project, so go check it out! it’s gonna be awesome…
Edit: Yeah I know, I should have drawn porn, but All i could come up with is a comic about pinkie pie getting frosting all over her, and dash being unsure about her underwear…
you really did an ad for this and didn’t spell it ‘cumming soon’? that’s like, a criminal offense in the porn pun world, hobbes. someone from playpony is going to cum to your house with a big rubber dong and beat you like a nanny possessed for not using excessive innuendos and the word ‘moist’ in places it doesn’t apply.
but i bet this is hot. go buy it and stuff
That Tommyknockers stuff is cool! If when this story arc is over, could we see some concept sketches that brewed in your mind while you wrote and drew this?
thanks! when it comes to that blog though, i do less ‘concept sketching’ than one might guess. Its generally i good idea to try out several different designs before settling on one, but the reality of the situation is that I try to put up a post once, sometimes twice, a week, I work a job and I have a family. Gives me maybe, I dunno, one day to draw. so much of the ‘concept’ stage is mental, and when it comes to drawing the post I just put stuff down and delete it till im happy with it. I have very few unfinished pics in my harddrive, fewer than I rightly should.
Heheh, ok, ok, I’m the first to admit I cant spell for shit, but Im up to 12 notes about the “minors” vs “miners” error on the last post. 12. Ive never gotten 12 notes about a post…ever, and i know this isn’t the first time I’ve messed a word up. My only conclusion: tumblrpon really knows its stuff when it comes to accidentally describing something as being underaged XD.
well ill b
poni non-sequitur is like the bestest thing
daww. i likes family posts
