con prep

Oh you thought I’d forgotten about this artist collab series thing? Naah I’ve been busy drawing other horses for con prep. But it looks like @silfoearts, aka @royalsketchbook, is helping me get back to the swootie this time and god bless

I actually learned a lot from just working with silfoe’s sketch, holy cow she knows how to draw legs that *aren’t* marshmallow. Unbelievable. I mean look at that sweetie’s legs! I always edit collab sketches to try to mix a bit of our styles, but I couldn’t touch those things, they’re perfect! And get this, she can draw ponies with *eyebrows*. I can’t do that I don’t have that kind of technology. Anyways safe to say I really loved working with her sketch not only because I can now… steal… a few style things, but also because it was cute as hell. Wanted to tie in with her blog stuff so the idea was that Sweetie is being babysat by Twi/Luna while Rarity runs around doing canterlot things. I think they’d make for pretty good parents, it’s almost as if a wedding is coming up on royalsketchbook or something.

Anyways, thanks again Silfoe! As for all y’all, enjoy some pretend princess sweetie with not pretend princess princesses

i’ve been so swamped with summer cons that i accidentally let tumblr fall to the wayside….whoops!! i forgot to post this print from fanime and yes, it’s absolutely true that i accidentally painted twenties instead of tens and subsequently had to spend an hour re-photoshopping little alexander hamiltons over them

if you’d like, you can buy your own copy of the print here :)

You’ll Do - by @purrlockholmes

I commissioned the lovely @purrlockholmes to create some custom artwork for a button that I am going to give out at 221b con, and she blew me away with the results.  Check out her Commission page if interested!

I would also like to signal boost @librarylock‘s Button Shoppe!  She will be making the buttons for me, and I am super excited that it all came together so well!!!

I couldn’t be more pleased!

My clear acrylic charms came in time for AnimeNext!!! They are double-sided and roughly 1.5″ :) It’s my first time making charms, and I’m really happy with how they turned out!! I’m thankful for @acornpress‘s quick turnaround, and they also gave me a bunch of extras, which is super nice ‘w’
