That face when you find something hard and crunchy, in a food that should not be hard and crunchy.
What do you do when you have trouble with certain areas in art? Draw more of it! Heh… hopefully this turned out okay. Again, for those who are interested in my ramblings, more after the break!
Ooops… I Arted Again…
I’m sorry. The reference was just too easy.
Though, give me some credit. It isn’t easy to make a reference to a Britney Spears song and nefarious bodily functions in a single sentence. All jokes aside, my apologies to those who are following me for stories, and are getting amateur-sketches instead. I promise I do have stories in the works.
For those interested in my self-analysis ramblings, more below the break!
Excuse Me, I Arted
Alright, maybe that’s a little crass.
I actually call this sketch, "Mortil, the Ill-Conceived"
More Below the Break!
No Butterscotch! No! Why are you doing this to us? AUGH!
Don’t worry, I won’t be doing this too often. However, I decided to invest in SAI, and this is my first pony sketch attempt. Why is his hair and tail the cheapest, easiest design? Because I very quickly learned that I stink at drawing hair - more than I stink at drawing in general. Obviously, I’m an amateur when it comes to pony anatomy. Please forgive my proportions, I’m kinda new at this.
Anyway, this is done using references from SBMinifridge, who I think is wonderful. I see his art sketches all the time and am inspired to draw. I decided for once I would actually fulfill that desire, as hard as it is to do. Practice makes passable! I actually love drawing, but rarely do it, and generally I’m more comfortable with a pencil and paper but… ah well. It’s much easier to erase things in SAI.
Sadly though, I have no pressure sensitivity, so if the lines look bad, yeah, that’s why. I have one reason to be proud of his picture. I did not trace anything! This was all done by hand, only looking at references for where joints were and how muscles ought to be, etc.
And as a final l note for those of you who might think otherwise. That blue thing underneath him is his leg, it is not anything else.
On the roadside of some distant country, following the events of the wedding…
Just as a note, this is Not my art - The only thing I can take credit for is changing the text under the heart, which originally just said “anon~”.
Every time I saw this picture, I couldn’t help but hear the words “will work for food” in my head. So I gave into my photoshop temptations and changed the text to what you see.
With some searching, I discovered that the artist of the original is applesarcum! Many kudos for a great image!

I mentioned the other day that I had just finished a very long story. Well, it’s done, and currently on FimFiction. It is, again, a different kind of story. It’s tagged [Dark] but don’t let that scare you. It contains some darker elements, but it isn’t grimdark. [Alternate Universe] is another tag, but unlike “A Love Letter,” you’ll find this world is very much Equestrian, aside from its more serious themes.
It also contains coltcuddlers, and while the main plot of the story doesn’t revolve around that, homosexual relationships are prominent. So, for those of you who aren’t into that, please take that into account when deciding whether or not to read.
It’s also an odd story in that it had a very strange genesis: A facetious comment from the Ask-A-Pre-Reader thread on ponychan/fic/. I read the comment about the scenario, and for some reason, my muses in their usual fickle, finicky manner, took an interest. For the next several days I found myself compulsively writing and rewriting. Here’s hoping that the story which came out of it is worth the time reading.
The image is the cover-art, which may change if I edit it/fix it up more. I couldn’t afford a commission this time around, so I decided to try my hand at making my own. It’s the result of 2 days worth of work just in itself. It’s not the best, but, it turned out better than I expected. My apologies to the more art-inclined of my followers if your eyes burn, hehe. I’m an amateur, and I’m sure there are a dozen and one things wrong with it.
Thank you all for being patient with me and watching my work. I really do appreciate each of you.
I am not under any delusions whatsoever of being an “artist.” This is rough, it’s incomplete (at best), and it took me forever. This was drawn on a Viliv S7, which is kind of like a miniature tablet computer. Sadly, it does not have pressure sensitivity (and it shows). Don’t look too close or you’ll see the plethora of errors I left in there. I’m still a beginner when it comes to lighting and shading and everything. That being said, I sat down tonight and thought, “I want to draw a pony.” And I did. Or at least I tried. This is the result - maybe someday I’ll get better! Now you have to ask yourself, what is he watching?
“…..do you see it?”
