Drawfriend Roundup #1

Hello, any and all who might actually be inclined to check out my little fanworks blog. ^.^ I recently got the idea, after several inquiries on Equestria Daily, to find or create one single place to post up all my pony fanarts, seeing as how they have a tendency to go astray when I submit them to Equestria Daily for Drawfriend. Quite understandable considering how busy Seth and his team stay... anyway though. Hopefully this shall serve as a nice convenient place to get them all online, for any who might be interested in checking them out~

All my current doodles to date, compiled in one post!

*****

The very first piece I submitted for Drawfriend; don't judge me!


It had to be done.


This was actually one of my very first pony sketches, and it was the very first I slapped some color onto. I don't particularly care for it myself (I actually never even bothered submitting it), but that doesn't mean somepony else won't like it. Possibly.


This one actually did end up making an appearance on EqD, but not in Drawfriend (go figure). Yay random Rarity appearance~


One of the few that made it! And you'll have to excuse the less-then-stellar quality; my tablet's pressure sensitivity gave out halfway through but I finished with it anyway.


I actually drew and colored this at the same time as the previous three. Hence the shared questionable quality.


Evil, Discorded Fluttershy! I put a bit more time into this than most of the others, perhaps that shows.


I'm not sure what possessed me to make this, but I am glad something did. ^^


The most recent picture I finished. I think those creepy mugs would give me recurring nightmares, too.

That's all for now, hopefully more to come soon though!

Something tells me that the Fluttershy one is the look she has if she ever get possessed with an Death Note.

I love that Pinkie vacuuming picture for some reason lol

Haha! I told you people would dig it! Glad you put it all together. :D

Sidenote: About 5 of these I remember digging in previous Drawfriends. Had no idea you did all of them.

Excellent work!

These are absolutely adorable~

I really love the muted colour palette and the gradient backgrounds, makes it feel like they belong in a children's story book or something. (perhaps not the 'drinking Rarity' one tho)

Oh meep, comments~! *squee*

@Vinnyboiler

Would you believe it if I told you I've never seen Death Note before? I'm so frequently out-of-the-loop, it seems... I suppose I've been missing out?

@Snow

Haha, very glad you enjoyed that one... it was a silly idea when it came to me but it made me smile, so it's wonderful to hear others have gotten some enjoyment from it too. ^^ Thank you!

@DJB123

My sincere and heartfelt thanks for your kind words, darling! ^.^ I frequently notice your comments on EqD and from what I can see, we have quite the similar tastes, haha. I greatly appreciate your support!

@Pogosama

Ah my dear, I wanted to give a special shout-out to you in particular, as you were one of the individuals who really encouraged me to compile these someplace. Thank you so much again for your support and encouragement, it really means a lot to me!

@dusty

Oh haha yes, that picture. I admit that I indulge in the occasional alcoholic beverage myself, and when I do a chocolate martini is one of my first choices. I would like to think that Rarity (being a lady of distinction) would have similar tastes were she to drink. ^_~ Or perhaps I'm just flattering myself, who knows.

In any case, thank you! While the gradient backgrounds are more a symptom of my not having much time for fanart and doing those quickly, I'm glad they don't disagree with you!

I just wanted to let you know the wonders pinkie pie vacuuming has done for my procrastination. <3 clean the house? Like a pinkie pie! Do the dishes? Like a pinkie pie! Mop the floor at work? LIKE A PINKIE PIE!!

Your art is absolutely lovely, and its so nice to see it all right there next to each other. Plus, someday you'll look here, and it'll be a great record of how you grow in your art.
Stalking? Yes.

Uuuuuuuuuh... nice work :) I'd really like to see more of this!

Considering I watch nothing on blogspot so far, but tons of stuff on DeviantArt, I (personally) would prefer if you would post them over there. The MLP fan groups would also make sure that a lot of people see this.

@Dovetail

Oh, this comment made my day, you have no idea! While I can't speak for every artist of course, I know for myself there is nothing more gratifying than to know my work has somehow inspired others, or at least made their lives happier in some small way (even in regards to such mundane tasks as household chores, haha)! Happy cartoon ponies in general have a similar therapeutic effect on me. ^-^

In any case thank you so very much for the kind words; they are much appreciated! <3

@L4m3ness

Thank you so much! I will certainly do my best to get some more artwork up soon, I promise you that.

And regarding deviantArt, I actually *do* have an account there, but have been inactive for quite some time and don't currently have any of my pony arts there. I have my reasons for this but do plan on getting active there again once I get some matters cleared up. When I do I will definitely post the news here!

Thank you again for your interest. :)

I don't know why, but I love the pinkie vacuuming one

WhiteDiamonds said... Reply to comment

@TomTheRock

I am actually quite fond of that one myself... it seems to have the mysterious power to instill joy whenever I need an emotional pick-me-up. I'm going to have to turn to Pinkie as my muse more often I guess. ^_~

Thanks for commenting, by the way!

What, where?

WhiteDiamonds said... Reply to comment

@Lupuleasa Ionut

I'm afraid I'm a little confused by this comment... are you perhaps suggesting that I should get a deviantART page? Because, though I can see now that I mentioned some time ago I still had one (sans pony-art, of course), I have since gone and deleted it due to reasons I've mentioned elsewhere on this blog. I have considered getting one again but for the moment at least, I'm far too busy in my life to be able to manage it properly (this blog keeps me busy enough as it is!).

I do appreciate the... interest though, whatever the case may be. Thank you much~! ^.^

Hey, could I use your corrupted Fluttershy piece as a cover for a song? Please :3

WhiteDiamonds said... Reply to comment

@Plaaay

Well good evening! Thank you so much for your interest in my artwork; I have to say I'm flattered by your request and would not mind at all if you used my piece for such a purpose! All I will ask, if you would not mind doing so is for you to share the link with me once it is available... I'd be very interested to see what you do with it. ^.^

Thank you again for your interest, as well as for asking permission... I appreciate it!
