Is it possible to purchase a print of this awesome drawing?

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 :)

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.

This is a great art piece. I'm going to upload audio of me singing "This Day aria - Colt Version" (Lyrics by Philsterman10), and I would love it if I could use this picture as the background of it! I will credit you in the discription, and as soon as I've uploaded the video, I'll send you the link.

"Congratulations, Armor, I can officially call you Colonel Shining Armor."
Thanks ma'am, it an honor to me…
"No, Colonel Shining Armor, it's an honor to all of us."

All ponies in Canterlot bowed, and liquid pride escaped from the eyes of a stallion who once was know for being brother of a certain filly, but now is know for his own merits.

for some reason, that armor reminded me of a character from Final Fantasy Dissidia (sorry, forgot the name. Heck, it's been a long time since I last touched my psp....).

*Deepbreath* Omigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomigoshomighosh! Hottie! I LOVE the armor. WELL done. Looks like something out of the Legend of Dragoon...Or Final Fantasy...One eensy weensy critique: his tail looks more like a feather duster than a tail to me ^^; I think it's because of the way it spreads in an outward direction from the center instead of out in one direction as if flowing in a breeze :3 Otherwise FAVE. SO Fave. <3 Pony heartthrob...
