  1. About Myself: I am the no.1 assistant. How I found Canterlot.com: Searda search How I became a fan of MLP:FiM: Rarity yealded me into the lieking. My favourite main cast pony/s: Miss Rarity I would like to propose that these forums don't have enough bacon added to it. Maybe if I where to help in this conspiracy a whole lot more would happen with this extra BaCoN. I hope that Rarity would be proud of me sending this message.
  2. Rarity nodded to herself softly as she finished sewing a particularly beautiful dress, special ordered by a young mare in town for Hearts and Hooves Day, which was less than a week away. She beamed proudly at it as she held it up before her, examining every last detail. Perfection! There was no way this dress wouldn't thrill and delight the mare who was soon to be its owner and leave her stallion charmed and enthralled. She couldn't wait until the customer came to pick it up so she could see her reaction. Sometimes her job was so rewarding. This was a special time of year for her too. Hearts and Hooves Day was a wonderful, magical sort of holiday. Love was all in the air. Meek and mild ponies would suddenly be compelled to boldness for the one's they loved. New romances formed, old romances deepened. And of course, Carousel Boutique received quite the wonderful boon in business! Stallions came requesting gifts for their mares and mares came looking for the perfect dress for their perfect date. Sometimes it even meant making two dresses for the same mare. It made for lots of work, lots of bits and lots of happy customers, all of which Rarity could appreciate. Though while Rarity did certainly love the holiday, she supposed it was a little bittersweet for her. There was no special somepony for her at the moment. She had spent much of her life set on finding her perfect prince. After enduring a certain Royal pain in the flank during the events of the Grand Galloping Gala she was now pretty confident that that prince didn't exist. It was kind of hard for her to reassess though, and it was difficult in general for her to settle for less than perfect. Furthermore, between running a small business which was growing exponentially more noteworthy by the day and making time for her friends who were oh so important to her, the time for finding a special somepony alluded her. That didn't mean that Rarity couldn't still enjoy the day. She truly did enjoy the atmosphere it had, the warmth of it all, the romance. Even if her own day might be a little empty compared to the mare's she was making dresses for, she'd still be wearing a pleasant smile when the day came around. She laughed quietly as she placed the dress she had finished aside. Today was a bit of an anomaly to her. This week was such a busy time for her shop usually, but she hadn't had a single customer walk into her shop in some time now. She still had a few dresses she needed to finish up but she had more than enough time to complete them all without event. She was confident this momentary lull would pass and things would become busy once again soon. Nodding once more, she found another dress and began to sew, humming to herself as she did, all the while glancing up at the Boutique's entrance every so often.

    If I had my way the mane 6 would spend an episode gender-swapped, and Elusive would be voiced by Tim Curry.

  7. From the album: Cast

    I like to think this came out better than Demoshy did. Cant draw Fluttershy for ****, but I can draw Rarity just fine while drunk and distracted by my boyfriend. Starting to reconsider Flutterpie as OTP… danget. Her nose is a little long now that I look at it again D: FIXED IT!
  8. From the album: Cast

    For when things just don't go your way.
  9. From the album: Cast

  10. From the album: Cast

    I drew this this morning cause I haven't drawn my darling little Rarity in a while. I plan to use this as a spray in TF2, to show those grouchy guys on the other team just how much I love them And I love all you too! If you want to use this as a spray, go right ahead! Spread the love! Also if anyone can tell me how to make this a transparent PDF I would love you 5EVER!
  11. From the album: Cast

    There's something wrong with me.
  12. From the album: AdoxArt

    Rarity is best pony.
  13. From the album: Cast

    I didn’t have my tablet with me this afternoon so I grabbed a piece of paper and tried to draw Rarity stone age style. I tried to hit the undo button like, 15 times but it just wasn’t there! D: I did my trademark Rarity Pigtails because I still can't draw her usual hair. I kinda like it better this way though, honestly. I still need to figure out what to with her bangs though... [edit because I forgot her horn >_<]
  14. From the album: Cast

    Holy WOW this one took a long time. Totally worth it though.

  16. From the album: Cast

    Pinkie Pie and Rarity style each other up while I experiment with new art styles. Everypony be stylin'! If anyone is so inclined to color this, go ahead as long as you credit me.
  17. About Myself: I am a pegasister. I love drawing dogs, cats, and ponies (i'm not very good at ponies) but anyway. PEGASUS BEST PONIES! WOOT WOOT! How I found Canterlot.com: Google. How I became a fan of MLP:FiM: Memebase. My favourite main cast pony/s: Fluttershy,Rainbow Dash Yes, tis me. I am not really sure what to say, I typed stuff up there though. Again, as I mentioned, I am a pegasister. I am sick right now, so I might misspell words or forget to capitalize once and a while. I am a geek, though! If I get accepted by the moderators, I will be... Midnight Dash! WOOOOOHOOOO!
  18. From the album: Cast

    Playing around with minimalism a little bit (at least I think that's what it's called). If people like this one I may do one for Rainbow Dash... her hair would be fun.
  19. From the album: Cast

    Pinkie Pie had planned a perfect picknick party for her pretty princess friend Rarity's birthday, but an unexpected summer thunderstorm rained on her parade... ...Rarity had an umbrella. asdflalvdsalfdlsaf I hate drawing Rarity so much... she came out so awkward in this and I spent like 10 minutes on those freaking curls. I'm just glad I could get away with hiding her bangs behind Pinkie. Pinkie's fun to draw, as expected from best pony. I feel like I'm forgetting something.... oh yeah ~Shippy shippy shippy
  20. His time at Sweet Apple Acres had been interesting, to say the least. When he had first learned he was to spend a somewhat significant amount of time at the farm, he was apprehensive, nervous, excited in an unkind manner. How would he fare in a world so unlike his? Some told him to use it as an opportunity to learn and appreciate a lifestyle so vividly contrasted against his own, walk a few miles in the horseshoe of another. He had decided after about an hour that the people who said those things were ignorant, as despite the patience and kindness of his hosts, he was reminded almost hourly that he did not belong. Maybe it was when he milked the cows. It was wildly uncomfortable for all parties involved, as he felt as though he was doing something wrong. He knew he was doing *it* wrong, since the cows had no problem telling him so rather forcefully whenever he did. They talked entirely too much and he was blaming that for his consistently small output, as well as the fact that it was naturally difficult for a pony to milk a cow. It required a large degree of trust between cow and pony and while they had that relationship with the other ponies of the farm, they did not have that with Valen. More than a few times, as they sat there gabbing away and he tugged and pulled and squeezed and worked for what seemed like drops of milks, he was reminded by the cows that he wasn't quite ready for it. Maybe it was whenever he went to go feed the chickens, as horrifying as that could be. Savvanahcock and her compadres had established who was the rooster and who was the hen in this specific relationship from the first go. They treated Apple Bloom with such love and affection but for Valen, it was nearly a fight to the death. Getting eggs would end with them knocking him to the ground and pecking them until he couldn't feel it anymore. Feeding them had the same result with the added benefit that feed often got stuck in his mane and they would chase him. He was sure that a few times at night, one of the chickens had been right outside of the window, staring at him. Maybe it was a dream, but as he would lay there the next day covered in welts from the previous day's feed, he knew that he wasn't quite ready for it. Maybe it didn't matter that he wasn't very useful in the art of apple bucking or any form of heavy chore or labor: As long as he could contribute in some way, there would be great benefit all involved? No, wrong, because he had no skills that translated. Even basket weaving didn't really help out as the bushel baskets he made, while wonderfully decorative and pretty, were found wanting in terms of structural integrity and strength. A bushel basket wasn't very useful when it broke into a pile of twigs, as Applejack had with exasperation several times moaned. Another avenue of usefulness, out. Truly a blow as until the basket had broken under the strain of six apples and been rendered useless, he had considered it a fine achievement. Another sign that he wasn't quite ready for farm life. By the time that had failed, it had become clear that aside from his below average bucking and hauling skills, he had few marketable farm abilities. No worry, Applejack had said with a smile. They always needed help at the house. And truth be told, he was more of a help here than he was outside. However, he had started to feel as though Applejack liked having to have a cabana colt to call upon to do everything from washing dishes to scrubbing floors to doing what little laundry they had, and that was often just in the first few hours. It was unskilled labor that didn't really require much in the way of the strength, and sadly was perhaps what he was most qualified for. After all, he wasn't going to be so mean and base as to force an elderly mare to do the work that a fine upstanding healthy colt could do, right? Whether it was their attempts at guilt tripping him, Applejack's sickly sweet manner in which she'd ask, or his own desire to be of some help but he would use the elderly mare as his own fallback excuse. And he was glad to be of some help, to have some things he could do reasonably well, because his hosts were wholly capable in their livelihoods and it made him him feel lazy. Granny Smith, easily the oldest pony aside from the Princesses he had ever seen, knew more about baking and orchard running than the rest of the land put together. It was a shame it was wrapped up in a package of such irregularity and non-linearity that he doubted even a tenth of her wisdom could be articulated, let alone understood. Big Mac lived up to his name, his strength being unrivaled and his work ethic unnervingly solid and unquestioned, free of drama or issue. He was also quiet so often and for such long periods that it spooked Valen terribly. Apple Bloom was a wonderfully sweet filly, but rough, tumble, bursting energy and a contempt for stillness. Having to share a room with her was by itself exhausting as she was wont to flail around and knock him beside the head. Considering all the other head bumps he was taking during his story, he knew to make an appointment to see a doctor. Applejack was the cause of perhaps three-quarters of his head injuries. She was an affable, terribly friendly pony with good work ethic and morals. She also was a walking disaster zone for everypony around her though never her, a fact which as her unofficial cabana colt spelled doom for him. It was all a microcosm of their family unit. They were rough and tumble, dirty, close, dawn to dusk workers, the backbone of Equestria. He admired them. Respected them. Loved them. He also knew he didn't belong and his time in the small country city would have been a punishment had it not been for Rarity. She was a wonderful, wonderful, splendid mare. They shared some of the same interests- fashion, fine personal grooming, being wonderfully generous, avoiding nasty business- and they fared well together. For a colt such as Valen, who lacked that need to test limits, she was pitch-perfect as an older influence. She was kind, gentle, and preferred to be more of a caretaker rather than a playmate. She was more than understanding with his clothing request and stood by his side during his repeated failures during Winter Wrap-Up; Celestia knows that was just the tip of the iceberg. Fact was that in the end, he and Rarity got along, they got along well, and she was an amazing change of pace and breath of old air into Valen's day. So of course when she had offered to take him gem hunting with her, he leapt at it like it was the last orange in the orchard. Not only was it more time with Rarity, but it was about eight hours of light labor as opposed to nearly twelve of heavy or maddening labor. Applejack hadn't seemed that off-put and the night before, he could hardly sleep, packing for the day and imagining all the beautiful, pretty gems they'd find. The morning of, he woke up, ate his breakfast with more excitement than he had ever since the Ponywalk. That generally meant he talked entirely too much. "-And then I made sure to get that really wonderful magicfiber towel to get all the dirt and grime off of any gems we find. I have a red one, a green one, a pink one, a purple one..." He rambled on as he had for the last ten minutes about Rarity, gem hunting, and what he was bringing. It was a pleasant topic.

    I asked a little while back which of two poses would work well for the banner, and this was the pose chosen; however when all was said and done I realize I could have both poses in and still have at least 50% of the base of the banner for text. Anyway for the pose people like more, I made it a small standalone pic with an added background (the actual banner background is transparent so the background color for the site can be seen). Even though this is to celebrate February and by proxy its main theme of Valentine's Day; I don't see this as a ship pic or them as a ship couple. Instead I see Rarity caring for him deeply as a friend, and while she is aware of his crush on her and does not feel the same way, she can still always be there for him whenever he needs a shoulder to cry on or whatever. She is generosity after all.

  22. It had been little over a month now since Ice Storm had moved to Ponyville, and only a couple weeks since she'd gotten Frozen Delights open and it had been a hit in the town, something that she was very much happy about. The fact that she actually had the bits to do things for herself now took a lot of stress off of her, and made her feel more comfortable with herself without having to rely on the generosity of the ponies here in Ponyville, which even as kind and generous as they are, can only go so far. She was glad that she didn't have to test how far. Today was a day of redemption for her though. Well not really redemption, but it was to her. It had been almost a month since she bought her glorious dress from Rarity and has even since been to a Gala with it since. Now that her views on Canterlot had changed somewhat, she figured that she would be getting more use out of it, and would eventually be another dress if for nothing else other than variety. That wasn't why she was going to Rarity's today though. No, as for now the dress she had was perfect. Today she was going to pay off the last ten bits that she owed Rarity as well as treat her for lunch if she was interested. Ice Storm approached the boutique and opened the door seeing that the sign said open. She looked at some of the other dresses that were on the racks, and just like before she found herself mesmerized by the sight of them. They were so elegant and magnificent, that some of them even made hers look simple. Which, in all honest it was, but it was still perfect for her. She did purchase one of the cheaper dresses she though, but then again she wasn't sure because she suspect that Rarity dropped the price a bit for her. Not that it mattered, Ice padded her way further into the store. "Rarity, are you home? I came in because the sign said open," she stated, not seeing her when she immediately walked in.

    Who's got two thumbs and had an exclusive photo shoot with the one and only Rarity? I've got no idea, but I'm freaking jealous of them. She's like... the pony everypony should know! This Rarity avatar is free to use by anyone. Once again glasses are the best thing ever, and Rarity makes those rose daddy-o shades look sooooo smooth.

    Just the raw images for a couple new banners I will be cropping out. These are more summer themed. It is a challenge to make a theme for a strip that is a 6:1 ratio, half of which needs to be reserved for text. Because banners are small, you don't want a whole lot in them. Top theme is sharing ice cream. Bottom theme is summer hats. Looking for feedback before finalizing into banners, already I see a couple minor changes are needed. *Update* Touched up the image a little bit based on folks helpful critiques. Thanks!
