This review is for the complete comic, not only this strip. I actually just found out about this great comic via Equestria Daily and re...

I'm anything but an artist. I've finished an apprenticeship in media design, but generally I'm just a software architect. But since vectoring is so much fun and a great way to do something which is not related with coding, I pretty much enjoy to do it.

Requests & Commissions
I don't take requests, but I'm fully open to commissions. By now I can create somewhat decent sketches myself, but if you prefer a specific style, you may also deliver a sketch yourself (it can be very rough, I'm fine with that). I can do simple line art, flat color as well as fully shaded drawings. For prices, please send me a note. Examples of recent work:
Sad Applejack by dasprid Scootaloo cries on the outside by dasprid KnifeH likes to show off his butt by dasprid Happy Tracy by dasprid Cute Qetesh by dasprid

Additionally, I offer custom wood engravings and cuttings like the following one:

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't done much art for quite some time. Well, of course the last season is over for 2 months already, but even before that I haven't worked on many vectors. What I was actually doing was training my drawing skills, especially my sketching. That took me actually quite long, but eventually I managed to get a few decent sketches done. With the help of Bra1nEater I even managed to get a somewhat 3D-looking sketch done, which still took me about 3 days.

As I wasn't happy with only doing sketches over and over again, I then decided to start learning some shading techniques. That by itself wasn't too hard, as I was already used simple shading from my vectors, and I only had to adopt it to Krita. Bra1nEater was really helpful, helping me and giving me advices along the road, sharing a lot of his knowledge and techniques with me (seriously, thanks for that!).

Right now I'm still improving the shading of the skin, but soon I want to move on with the mane and the skin color. But for now I don't want you to wait much longer anymore to get something to see (I've been working on this for 15 days, with lots of breaks still, and I'll surely still take some time to finish this). So enjoy this little preview, I hope you like it. Till then!

Hey, it's a widget I can install for free, so why not? ;)… I guess it'd be pretty cool to be able to properly organize all the vectors I make, but it's not really required. Should this one ever hit the goal, I'll come up with a special vector :)

You must be logged in to donate.
