Is it possible to purchase a print of this awesome drawing?
EuropaMaxima Featured By Owner May 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I'd need  a print membership to do that, and as it is I probably won't make enough money out of it to justify how much it would cost to get it in the first place, so no, sorry.

The last entry you made before this one was 3 months before. I'm curious as to what you did during those 3 months that helped you perfect your own art style. I've seen that from this picture onwards, the quality of the pictures just increased dramatically.

Well actually the 3 month gap happened because I just lost the impetus to keep drawing. I mostly felt that I had some obligation to keep, so I really just drew things in an attempt to get views, not because I necessarily enjoyed. I have a whole graveyard of unfinished projects that I totally lost interest in.


As for the perfecting of the art style, it was mostly due to taking a step back and seeing just what had already been done by other artists, and really just trying to find something completely unique.  For example; Fluttershy pics number in the tens of thousands, now a large amount of them are practically the same thing, just with slightly tweaked styles. What I intended to do was be more selective about what I drew and just put a great deal more effort into each, so that at least some of my pics would stand out more than say; the hundredth picture of Fluttershy in a meadow (or something of that ilk).


Hopes this helps :)

Wow! Awesome work!

If you do not wish for the video to remain up, I will remove it. You have every right to say that, as it's your art I'm using.
