It seems that I’ve been away from the blog for so long that it has become infested with ghosts…pony-ghosts, no less!
As fitting as this may be for the day after Halloween, I really don’t think it is quite the right thing for a My Little Pony themed blog.
Luckily for me, comic artist/writer Tristan Jones sent the Ghostbusters around and they sent those pesky pony phantoms packing!
Ironically, I am actually breaking my long absence from the blog in order to inform you that I will be absent for a little while longer…sorry about that! I am currently taking part in NaNoWriMo and most of my free time will be taking up writing (technically I shouldn’t even be taking the time to make this post, but shhh…I won’t tell if you don’t!
See you all in December…or earlier if I give up on this crazy project!
Disclaimer: Fizzy and Sparkler were the very obliging models for the pony phantoms portrayed. No ponies passed on or were otherwise harmed in the making of this piece.
I have an extra special treat for this week’s Pony Profile. Introducing…Sweet Scribbles!
In her interview earlier this week, Nessbow of http://www.nessbow.com described what she thought she would be like if she were a My Little Pony, and this is my interpretation of that character.
I tried to give Sweet Scribbles a super-long and luxurious tail and mane, much in the style of the G1 Brush ‘n’ Grow ponies. This was done partly because Nessbow’s favourite childhood pony, Twisty Tails, was a Brush ‘n’ Grown pony and partly because…well…have you seen this girl’s hair?
As for the glasses, I don’t think she would wear the all the time, but who can resist a pony in glasses?
Sweet Scribbles makes friends everywhere she goes with her warm heart and honest, upfront nature. She is adventurous both in life and fashion and doesn’t always follow the rules, so watch out! Ultimately she is a sweet and kind-hearted mare and delights in bringing colour and laughter into the lives of every pony she meets.
Because I don’t know how to colour images, I used General Zoi’s Pony Creator game to create a rough idea of what I think her colours might look like.
I should stress, of course, that this is just my personal interpretation of Sweet Scribbles. Sweet Scribbles belongs to Nessbow.
So what do you guys think? Does Sweet Scribbles seem like a good match for Nessbow? What would each of you be like if you were a pony?
I’ve been so busy getting ready for my holiday and trying to wrap things up at work that I just haven’t been able to finish today’s post. I HOPE to get it up tomorrow, but in the mean time please enjoy this sketch portrait of yours truly that I was lucky enough to get last weekend from Tristan Jones (one of the artists who does the creature concept art for the new Ghostbusters comic series). Tristan was one of the many great artists doing free sketches at All Star Comics’ Free Comic Book day extravaganza.
I’m pretty sure this is what every artist sees when I bug them for freebies.
See you all soon, and I apologise again for the lack of proper update!
