Thursday morning/afternoon, my Twitter and Facebook friends were treated to a PONY PARTY!!
These were also my Friday update over at Alex’s Guide. As it says over there, I drew these Wednesday night while at Sunday Comix, which is when I typically will draw a comic for Friday, and since I didn’t have anything else to put up, I figure the pony party would suffice. Then when I got home from work Thursday morning, I stayed up waaaaay too late coloring all of these.
Totally worth it.
I’ve been working for the Eye of Sauron so much lately that I don’t always have the time to draw everything I’d like during the week. Luckily, that’s changing this coming week because I asked to cut my hours a little bit so I have an extra day off each week. So that time will go to getting things done!
Anyways, this pony party was inspired by Yamino, whose tumblr exploded with stuff about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! the other day. She drew pony version of the Panty & Stocking cast, which made me want to draw some ponies too. I haven’t actually seen any FIM yet, so that’s why my ponies look rather different. ^_^
Another stab at chalk pencil in my brown sketchbook.
The full piece for the cover of Garanos Volume III. It’s been redrawn from a panel that appeared in the comic, and this version is actually a full 11 x 17 inches if I ever want to make a poster out of it.
Fire stock photos came from Photos8.
Garanos Volume III Artist Editions are now available for preorder! As before, the books cost $34.99 plus shipping, and this book includes 12 pages of bonus material!
Preorders will be handled through my online store this time, which uses secure SSL encryption and payment through PayPal. If you will be attending ConnectiCon in July, you can opt for convention pickup during checkout! Just choose “Store Pickup” during checkout.
I’m also making Volume I and II AE’s available as well, for anyone who would like to buy all three in one go! For now, I can only offer my remaining Volume II misprints, but if/when they are depleted, I will then switch over to fresh copies from Ka-Blam.
In addition, you can use the following coupon code for 10% off your order of $50 or more if you choose to purchase anything else: mayflowers2010
Preorders will be open through May 31st.
I found myself down in the Short North today, so on my way home, I stopped in at Utrecht for a new sketchbook. (My current book is nearing its last few pages, eep.) I got my usual 8.5 x 11 hardcover, but I also picked up a 9 x 12 100% recycled brown paper sketchbook, since I’ve been interested in drawing on colored paper with my pastel pencils and artstix.
This is Gara in pastel chalk pencil, I spent about 30 minutes on it. Some natural media is a nice way to switch things up now and then.
