Happy Birthday, Harwick-darling!
Today, after months of inactivity on my part, I make my return to the artistic realm of the pony-fandom once again. And what better occasion to warrant such a return than the birthday of our very own beloved Harwick. Now technically, Harwick's birthday was yesterday but despite the fact I'm only making this post now, I'm happy to say that I was actually able to get his gift to him on time and wish him a fabulous day on schedule. And, along with his gift above that he has already seen (or well, most of it anyway since I had to go back and edit/tweak a few things), I also am posting up a as-yet-unseen little bonus gift for him, because honestly such a thing was just begging to be done (and I think all of you from the regular blog-crowd are able to understand the joke in this case). I sincerely hope you enjoy it dear.
Those of you who correspond with the amazingly talented Harwick on deviantART, or at least visit his page on occasion, may remember seeing one of my ridiculously-simple muro doodles grace his webcam for some time, which bore more than just a passing resemblance to the Rarity painting above. I drew it for him as a teaser when I sent him a batch of cookies one day, just as a very small token of affection. He ended up liking the image so much that he proposed commissioning me for a more finished version, but I was more than happy to do the idea simply as a gift, and there it is. The technique is a little bit different than anything I've done to date I think, but I had fun experimenting with it and I hope you all enjoy it as well.
So yes, once again my dear I wish you all of the best in this year to come, and it's been my sincere pleasure to count you as my good friend for this past year and a half! I am looking forward to many more wonderful and rewarding conversation and correspondences to come. <3
