  1. Heehee!! Thanks Riki! Glad you like it! XD
  2. Happy Birthday Arc!! XD 

  3. There’s no objectively “better” option. It just depends on what you want out of life.
  4. @Jesse Terrence got it. It was gonna be Fancy Pants and Fleur.
  5. I actually seem to have run out of steam on the unicorn duo, unfortunately. The lineart is done, but I kind of want to work on something else now. Might just have to see if Nightmare Daring can carry me to victory.
  6. Phew... finally made some headway in clearing out my closet. I haven’t cleaned out that thing in like ten years.

    Trying to decided what to do with all these Beanie Babies... :sealed:

      I wonder what the ultimate beanie would look like?

      A standard beanie baby, except it's as tall as a 2-story house. And it has the eyes of a demon. :sealed:

      Where I used to live, in a smallish city, we had a Nepalese buffet. It was awesome. My brother and I tried to get over there at least once or twice a month, if not more.

      I only had it once at an Indian Food Restaurant, and I think I picked the wrong thing because it really wasn't that good. I don't know the first thing about the food, so I don't know what the favorite or common staples are.

  8. Unsure what you’re asking. Fanart often looks like whatever it’s fanart of, and the gen 4 ponies have a very distinctive style. Traces of that style (the hooves, eyes, faces) can definitely be seen in most of your characters that I saw in your gallery, and I would immediately assume there was an MLP connection without any context. If you’re asking if your characters are legally distinct enough that you won’t get sued, then yeah, you’re probably in the clear. Just check with legal counsel on that. But it’s still going to give off the MLP vibe. I would definitely consider a few more attempts at other art styles. Here’s another example. This is Fluttershy and Pinkie as anthros. They still got the short MLP noses, but the rest of style is so off-on-its-own that without the telltale hairstyles, you probably wouldn’t be able to identify them. EDIT: I just went and looked at the artist that did your cover art. They're AMAZING. And I can see that they're perfectly capable of not making MLP/cartoony looking anthros. I wonder why your portrait for your adult novel turned out so cutsie?

      That Parasprite ball in the middle later became this: 




      Interesting how both episodes credit M.A. Larson as their writer. :secret:

      Oh! I feel it. I feel the friendship!

  10. Oh I’m not sure. I was just walking down the sidewalk and this little cat deliberately intercepted me, blocking my way. I said hello, he meowed, and I gave him a little head scritch. He moved for a second and I tried to continue going down the sidewalk, and he darted in front of me again. So I just turned around and went the other way. But I had to check a couple times to make sure he didn’t follow me home. XD
  11. Welp, I did it! I bought a car all on my own! First time I’m gonna have actual payments. I’ll be sure to share a picture when I can.

      @ShadOBabe A Cruze?! That's awesome! I promoted that car when I was in college! :mlp_pinkie:

  12. Guess what I’m doing? I’m at a dealership. I’m about finance a car for the first time. :grin:

      I'd love to see a photo of your new vehicle! :mlp_pinkie:

  13. Absolutely MLP looking. I can see resemblances in the round, squishy hooves, the big eyes, and the short, cute horse snouts. And most of those art links lead to very MLP looking quadruped designs, not the anthros you say you’re going to use. And while I would squarely blame a parent if they don’t check the content of a book before their kid reads it, that cover is positively going to draw in children, or ignorant adults buying gifts for children. Look at those adorable characters, with their big sparkly eyes. Here’s a horse anthro I yoinked off of Google images. This kind of style might be more appropriate for the tone and brand-image you’re looking for:
  14. Coffee!! So goood!! (I’ve actually know a bit about Lovecraft. Got look up “overly sarcastic Lovecraft” on YouTube. First result should be my favorite video on the subject. XD)
  15. Oh, a downer by itself isn’t too bad. Especially since I never felt any emotional connection to Shakespeare’s characters. But I’m mean, horror takes it WAAAY too far. It’s not just sad, it’s hopeless, undignified, and frequently disgusting.
  16. I’ll just say they’re both unicorns. XD
  17. I enjoy MILDLY spooky stuff. But like legit horror? Horror movies, games, books... No way... I hate watching characters suffer and be tormented with no hope of a happy ending, and gore makes me legit sick.
  18. Regular pen and paper for the lineart, Photoshop CS5 for the editing and colors.
  19. No you’re totally fine. Hmm, well normally I hate horror, but I do occasionally read through spoopy stuff like the SCP Foundation. I don’t think anyone’s actually ever told me a real ghost story.
  20. Hmmm... not any notable ones. Im good at writing academic papers. And I’m good at debate, but that’s stressful. I’m planning on learning the guitar, as Jesse mentioned below. Sorry, Jesse, life has been a bit hard right now. So I’ve only been working on my art. I still want to learn, but seriously, don’t get your hopes up.
  21. Oh no, the evil pair is for my second entry that I started a couple days ago. This is the first entry I made. Heehee, awww thank you!! So glad you like it!! X3
  22. I finished my art contest entry! Yeah, I'm showing off! I'm flipping ecstatic right now! XDD
  23. OMG GUYS!! Come look at my contest picture!! 8D

    Click that and take a look!! Do it!! You'll love it!! :wub:
