I am in the process of getting ready for Babscon this week. I have to admit that this years con has quickly evolved over the last couple months. Originally I just envisioned as being a quiet and entirely social convention for me. A weekend with like-minded fans of Equestria.

Then at Further Confusion I was informed that Babscon was going to have an art show and would like to be in it? I was honored but it meant I had to create a new body of work for the show in less than two months since I had sold everything at FC. I have one panel in the art show and I am treating this year's con as a trial balloon to see how the general pony fandom responds to my art style. Primarily I will be selling small B/W pieces since I have been able to generate enough of them in relatively short period of time.

About this time I was contacted by :iconearth-pony: asking if I was interested in having some of images laser cut into wood and offered for sale at his booth at Babscon. Of which he is booth H11. For this show he will be displaying a selection of my Ponyville architectural drawings. From the images they sent me they have some skill with a laser. This is an interesting experience for me and hopefully it is profitable for Earth-Pony.

Interests

Today one of my roommates was looking through a sketchbook of mine and he asked whether I had ever thought of doing just a book which would be a collection of my drawings of monsters and creepy beings. Kind of a portfolio of dark things from my subconscio

You did an excellent job of conveying the potency of the original photo. This is a man who has seen too much. It deserved a fav.

Thats exactly what i thought when i saw that pic. ... Thats the true face of war- the shock, sadness, and stress of it all is evident on his features. That pic practically demanded to be shared

It was a neat piece. Sorry I didn't leave a comment at the time but I was heading out the door for work. I'm more in the Fluttershy-Discord shipping camp but I could see Celly and Discord possibly spending some quiet time together like this.

It's all good. I'm glad you enjoyed it. <3
That's cool. I understand the appeal of all of the major Discord ships.

Fluttercord just doesn't appeal to me because 1) I see her more as a motherly figure towards him (with the "isn't that right my wittle patient" cooing and the "now you see here young man" tone she has when she scolds him) (which I like just fine because I think Discord needs someone like that), and 2) I was already in the Dislestia camp before Keep Calm and Flutter On happened. <3

But thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit.
I've always liked your artwork. 83
