Ok so, update time:

Hey Guys, I'm still alive wouldn't-cha know? :O

But seriously, hey everyone, I hope you all have been well, thanks to those who have stuck around my practically hibernating account here on the dA. 

I just recently finished up my first semester of college and boy am I happy about that. A moment to relax again during this holiday season is just the thing I've been hoping for. 

Though honestly I won't be relaxing too much cause the next tidbit of news I gotta break to you is that I am in the process of moving, and I have been spending a lot of time packing up, cleaning, and preparing for the day, so there's that as well.

To anyone I owe stuff too, I once again apologize for the unfairness of this unholy amount of waiting you have had to do. That being said, I still intend to work on commissions unless a refund is far more interesting (at this point, I would completely understand if you wanted a refund).

Last thing, in regard to the drawing, I'm actually very happy with it, because for a moment I felt I had lost my ability to draw XD But this little collection (mostly season 4 inspired) has made me feel a lot better about the situation.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks again for your love and support. Hope to hear from you all soon ^^

I simply love your sketching! Honestly, I rather not call them sketches. :iconf3plz: They look great already as it is! It looks so refined and smooth! Oh, I forgot to say neat too ;D
Everythng looks clear and everyone of them is very well drawn :)

Thank you so much C: I do a lot of sketches and doodles, far more than my digital stuff. I'm glad that they can still come out looking good even though I have to take pictures of them with my phone XD

man your modeling for them is fantastic! is there any tips you can give to get a good model like that?

Modeling? I can't say I completely know what you mean by that ^^; I assume, posing maybe? In which case it's hard to explain my process, a lot of the time I find myself just winging it, and allow the ideas to come to me as I draw the picture. Not the best strategy for some drawings, but when they're just doodles I can get away with it

Good to see you're alive and well, Spade! :) 
Really love the collection of doodles you did here. Especially flutter's mane and tail!
Gosh the way you subtly curve each strands to give it a vibe of fluffiness has left me in awe!

Great work with these doodles!
I hope to see more from you in the near future! ;)

As always, it's wonderful to receive such praise from you, thanks so much :aww: I don't know when I'll return to the scene, but it is my intention to color that Fluttershy sketch, just to get my feet back on the ground in the realm of digital art. I'll go ahead and say that it's gonna be rough around the edges, but I hope it'll find some positive feedback regardless XD

Anyways, it's great to hear from you, and I hope you're having a happy holiday, as the saying goes c:

Can't wait to see what "magical goodies" you'd produce this year. ;)

Great to hear from you, Soul!

If these drawings are anything to go by, can I assume you've really been enjoying the new season? :D

I really love these sketches by the way. I especially like how you nailed Discord, the cragodile, and Ahuizotl.

Also, congratulations on getting through your first semester. And best of luck on the move.

Aw...AWESOME!

It looked like doodles in the preview, I cannot BELIEVE how well Flutterdance looks, and how you absolutely captured Pinkamena DianaPie Bach!

It's wonderful to know that you like them, they were a lot of fun to draw :D Fluttershy cutting a rug is probably my favorite one out of these XP

TrueMadayar Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013
I bet it was fun to see how well you captured them. I believe they probably confirmed it personally that you're awesome.

Flutterdance is irresistably cute - I'm imagining she's listening to the Less Than Jake version. Fluttershy is hardcore.

Thanks again for liking the drawings C:

I tried to mix Pinkie Pie playing the organ to "Toccata and Fugue" by Bach...damn hard. But irresistably fitting at the same time.

Yeah, I like the season so far. The last episode was a tad strange, though...we'll see. Maybe there will be a follow-up later on, bringing Daring Do in to help the Mane 6 in return. Then it would become sensible.

You're pretty lucky, man! I still have 1 or 2 weeks to go before the end of my semester.
As I said before, I really enjoy how you're using thick line to outline and thin line for details.
