At Long Last My Latest Commissioned Piece, Plus Happy Holiday Bonus!

Aaaaaaaghhh good evening everypony!

Finally, after what has probably been a month of no new art updates (maybe even longer, I haven't double-checked), I have at last finished my latest pony commission, and with the owner's permission I am now able to share it with you all!

This piece was commissioned by ILoveFluttershy, who asked for a scene of Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy walking together beside a lake beneath a beautiful night sky. Hopefully I was able to do his vision proper justice, and I certainly did work pretty hard on this one (hopefully now, also, you can all understand why I refer to most of my fanarts as doodles; this is an actual effort by me!). This picture is different from most if not all of the pony-pictures I've done to date, I think, because it actually was a full digital painting... most of my pieces so far I think have been done with SAI Painter's marker/pencil tools.

Anyway though, hopefully this makes up for my lack of recent artworks at least a little bit. It does have its flaws which I can't help noticing, but for the most part I'm content. And, as I've finally had a little free time outside of work, I was able to finish one of the fun little winter/holiday pictures I've had in mind for weeks, featuring my two favorite ponies once again. As I've been under a lot of stress lately though, and was going through withdrawals I'm not going to apologize for it!

I don't think Applejack suspected the prim and proper Rarity could throw such a mean snowball.

Anyhow though! There's probably a whole lot more I can add, and I actually thought about a few things but I suppose this post is long enough as-is, and there are always further updates after all. In any case, I wish you all the happiest of holidays, and a very Happy New Year as well! Until next time my dears, stay fabulous~!

A Brief Interlude

Greetings, all!

Well, at long last my moving ordeal is nearly over. I'm not sure if I jinxed myself by complaining about it (ahem, not whining) so much or what, but all sorts of things have certainly gone wrong over the past week. My new home needing to be cleaned again before I could move in (because the property management company is borderline negligent and did a terrible job the first time), the moving truck needing to be rescheduled, things getting delivered to the wrong address and so on... it has been a bit of a trying situation. But at least now, for the most part, I am moved in if not yet fully settled. ^.^ Which certainly has made my cat very happy.

In any case though! I  am actually writing this blog post more or less to let you all know that I will be absent for several days, as my internet service is not getting hooked up again until Wednesday. I haven't even checked my email today or yesterday, I have messages here to respond to and of course I have several commissioned projects in the works, but I assure you all I will do my best to get back to everyone in turn once I get my connection back. The commissions especially will be a priority to me, and indeed I hope to get some work done on a few of them while I am without my internet.

I guess that's all then. Oh yes, and if you all didn't know or probably couldn't have guessed it already, this past Saturday's episode totally rocked. That is all~

Until next time, stay fabulous all!
