Not only did you miss finishing the drawing by Christmas, but you missed New Years as well Shou . . . !
This drawing began two days before Christmas and I've been working on it since, I over-estimated myself =S . . .
Been listening to hour~5-hour long nightcore mixes, hour long medleys, lots of high-paced music as I tend to work faster, even then this drawing ccumulated over 40+ hours of work at least, more than about 4x longer than the last longest drawing, and personally I don't think this drawing reflects that all that well quality-wise . . . !My creativity in backgrounds is obviously lacking as well.
Well anyways, I have now set my standard for the year of 2013 for artworks! . . . Welp
First time I drew a lot of friend's OCs is over here, though it was sketches before -
In general, to all of ya, thanks for being around, thanks for the comments, the donations, the drawings, whatever reasons, yea, there's a lot~
Apologies, to those who weren't included in the drawing as I couldn't really keep going, continue to draw more ponies I mean as I was on the verge of collapsing, heh . . . Of course I appreciate all of ya~
- Nocturne Star
I find it kinda silly how in your journal, you mentioned you're planning a group drawing, including Shooting Star, because I drew that first sketch. I didn't feel that first sketch was justified, worth much I mean, it really was just kind of a sketch . . . but conveniently, I happened to be drawing this so I don't gots to feel guilty about it xD!And another thing silly is the whole "Stars" name, Shooting Star, Nocturne Star, Twin Stars by *DarkMage2
I wonder if you had assumed what I was drawing correctly.
You've gotten quite far in your artwork, and again congratulations on the 50th artwork and I'm looking forward for more of your drawings!
- Broken DawnDidya guess who gave ya the month premium yet?
I didn't really hint to ya all that well what I was drawing lol, since I asked about Twin Stars in the comment, but that's because I had a different drawing idea in mind. It's a bit out-dated as it was meant to be done by the holidays so here, have the incomplete sketch for the time-being! [link]
Apologies again that I didn't really get around to commenting =S
Least I can do is to try and draw for ya some more when I can, ya did draw Shooting Star quite a bit~
And by the way, can't wait to see what's next for your projects!
- Orion Belt
From past to present, your artwork has been improving quite a lot as well, 8 months as well? Ya sure got an increased mastery for line-less artworks, might bit jealous since I find it so hard to do . . . ! Anyways, it's great seeing the progress~
Glad to hang around and provide critiques/comments when I can and as well to you too, I love seeing artwork from ya!Have a random hoofheld telescope!
- Lemon Hearts
After completing the base colors, I realized I hadn't confirmed with ya which OC of yours was your main . . . ! Ended up switching but it wasn't a bother or anything. Before I had Autumn Breeze so here ya go - [link]
Like everyone else, love your work, and yours especially is rather cute~ Glad to help critique from time to time as well!
I took quite a bit of liberties here, outfit, guessing personality, I really should've asked =S Hope ya don't mind.
Glad having ya around for when I get around to spriting, and your assistance is extremely appreciated! As well it's fun talking to ya, the rare times that they happen 'though lol.
And I still can't get over the fact that you were kind enough to donate 2k points . . . ! Thank you again for that~ It's helped a lot.I was gonna sprite some more, but this drawing took so long xD;
In hindsight, it's almost silly that I ended up really liking your OC and as well hung around because you requested a whole bunch before~ Thanks so much by the way as it means a lot to know you liked my artwork that much~
Kinda convenient you've returned before I finished this drawing.
- Blue Skies
Well I haven't really been getting all that far in the MLP:RPG, but nonetheless it's great to see ya around and as well for the comments/game-related assistance.
Hope ya enjoy, and personally I felt really obligated to draw your OC again, not just because you're awesome but also the fact the previous two times I drew him (the request and the sketch) I didn't really feel like I did it all that well =S
- Before Four
And now ya know why I asked about your OC's name! It's too bad you didn't mention the maid dealio earlier 'though, would have been interesting to draw that here
Thanks for being around and for the interest in my request back when I did it, your OC's rather complicated but it's good practice and I wanted to draw him again, same reason as for tocoool, I wasn't entirely satisfied with the request drawings I did back then.
- Mc Smiles
This is why I went all ":3 . . . " when you asked if I could draw Mc Smiles, because the reason I asked about the cutie mark was so that I could draw him . . . !
The sprites you made are all amazing~ You make them really fast too! (even if some may have been from references) Good luck on the Ponymon project, would love to try it out when it's done.
- Blue Blaze
This is still not enough to make up for the fact you gifted me 2 months of premium and included my OC in your group drawing. I also still gotta owe ya that request one day! But for the time-being I at the very least had to draw Blue Blaze for ya!
So again thank you very much for your kindness~
- Spring Rain
Had I ever mentioned I really, really like your drawing style?
Now I'm wondering if I've ever commented on your artworks all that much =S Apologies about that.
Again, I really wanted to update many of the OCs I've drawn before, it really does mean a lot to have gotten requests back then so thanks~Plus, a continued thank you for drawing Shooting Star a long while ago~
- Sound Wave
I've been meaning to draw your OC, also I think you were the most suspect to realizing what I was up to lol. It's a thank you for the donation, for being around, pretty much the list of things I've said to everyone xD; Hope ya like it.
- Thunder Runner
Off-topic, but I just realized my OC's birthday (creation day) is the same as yours. On-topic, thanks for being around and good luck on the whole writing and/or art advancement!Off-topic, you and your love are really cute together~ I should really draw both your OC's together one day.
In response to your first note - Does this count?
For helping out in designing a mix of the pony colors you provided with your sonic OC, idk, but I really like drawing her and thanks for being around when I did the requests a long while ago.
- Conti & Mr. Flower
Yay for art! I'm really glad to have helped ya out and all that, and even if they were pretty long it did help me reflect on my strategies/techniques a bit. A gift for working really hard, the least I can do is draw your OC~
Thanks for being around, and I can't wait to see your continued improvements~
The one OC different for the rest, but a really cool OC~ Thanks so much for being around, for drawing Shooting Star for that commission and as well including her in your group drawing~
. . . I started running out of things to say there.
Overall to all of y'all, hope y'all enjoy it, I'ma go take a nap that I hadn't had for a while now . . . ~
