|Granted, I am not, nor have I ever been, a fan of My Little Pony in ANY of its incarnations, past or present. However, I thought that I'd drag out and post once again the SINGLE MOST MLP-related piece of which I could take some semblance of pride, which is based loosely on 's Friendship is Magic concept for the franchise and it was also from a challenge that someone issued upon me...to do a draw of one of the FiM universe characters as a human.|
And so, I chose Twilight Sparkle.....mainly because of that song "Twilight" by the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), in which the two things are completely unrelated, but hey.....
|Just a note: usually due to overall laziness on my part, I don't have any sort of background on a bulk of my work. Besides, I can't draw people and buildings in proper perspective if my life depended on it.|
|My IMMEDIATE Goal is to commission a PROFESSIONAL (or at least some crackerjack) artist who'd work for Points to assist in bringing my dream concept, the St. Patty's Girls Project, into reality. But in order to do this, I would need to take up a collection to get the project off the ground. ANY amount would be greatly appreciated, but I ask that you PLEASE help in any way that you can. |
I guess that the last couple attempts to take up a collection were a total failure were because I was at a loss as to how to SELL it.
I am a thirtysomething unhappily employed contractor who does artwork strictly as a hobby, meaning that I do not do this sort of thing as a profession. Heck, I'm not even good enough to submit any work to anywhere for publication, consideration for any projects, etc.|
Also, I am not currently doing commissions since I do not believe in charging people for something that they may end up hating, nor am I taking any requests at present time....mainly because I'm usually too busy with work, and I barely have time to sit down and churn out some material as it is. Thank you for your understanding.
And for those of you who are curious as to what I look for in a member of the opposite sex: I am attracted to those who have a great sence of humour, who aren't easily put off if I accidentally say something stupid....and I like the sock-and-sandal-wearing types who are never embarrassed about that type of fashion sence, even during the summer (Personally, I think bare feet in sandals is both overrated and a personal turn-off)....and they also have to be the type who don't mind if our first date is a couple of lattes at Starbucks since that's MY idea of "starting things out slow".
Other Aspects About Me:
Influences On My Work Include: Toei's Super Sentai Series, J-POP groups like the ever-popular AKB48, some anime I've seen during the early-to-mid 1990s
Phobias: Flying "Stingers" (eg. hornets, wasps),
Pet Peeves: Self-Righteous Types who force their beliefs on others to the point of bullying
Least Favourite Foods: Eggs, All Fruits, Certain Vegetables, Gold-Coloured Cheeses, Glazed Ham, Honey in its pure form, anything marked "Certified Organic".
Worst Vacation I've ever been on: Walt Disney World 1990 (we had not one but TWO blown tires in two days in a row...ONE in Georgia, and ONE in Ohio on the drive back).
Personal Favourite Super Sentai Series: Right now, I'd have to say Samurai Sentai Shinkenger
Personal Favourite Star Trek Episode: Episode 75, Season 3 "The Way To Eden" (The Enterprise picks up a band of 'Space Hippies")
Personal Favourite 7-Eleven Slurpee Flavour: Blue Raspberry/7Up (mix)
Personal Thoughts about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: I'm not a huge fan of the series at all, but I'm kind of holding my breath and waiting for the Japanese company Good Smile to churn out Figma versions of the Equestria Girls since I am NOT at all impressed with Hasbro's dolls.
Personal Thoughts about Dating: I NEVER kiss on a first date, and as for holding hands...if you feel comfortable doing it...
Personal Thoughts about Cinema: Unless something comes along that REALLY looks appealing, I pretty much stopped going to the movies. It's not worth the price of admission plus overpriced concessions.
Personal Thoughts about Fast Food: All Things in Moderation.
Personal Thoughts about Facebook: Never touch the site.
Personal Thoughts about Adam West: Better than George Clooney, that's for sure....as BatMan, anyway (Granted, I liked Clooney in The Men Who Stare At Goats ).
Personal Thoughts about BubbleYum mascot The Flavour Fiend: They need to bring him back.
Which is more disgusting, Cucumber Pepsi or Crystal Pepsi? Since I never tried Cucumber Pepsi, because at the time they sold the stuff in Japan I had no contacts living on that island nation....(otherwise I'd be paying them for cases of the many flavours of KitKat bars that they sell over there)
The Big Mac Vs. The Big King. Your Verdict: Thank God we still have a few Big Boy eateries here in Michigan.
My thoughts about animation creator/executive producer Craig McCracken: While I've enjoyed his earlier work (it took one otherwise boring Sunday afternoon in the mid-1990s to get me hooked on his early Powerpuff Girls shorts), for some reason I just couldn't get into his latest project Wander Over Yonder....his early draws for the project which was posted here about five or six years ago looked most impressive, but...
Nigiri (Pressed) Sushi or Maki (Rolled) Sushi: Nigiri All The Way, Baby.....unless it's Tamago, given my abhorrence toward eggs.
KFC or Popeyes: Both, but I lean more toward the latter when I'm in the mood for some spicy fried chicken.
Last Comic Book Read: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Collection Vol. 1 by Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird (collection of the first edition TMNT comics from 1984)
Personal Favourite Japanese Candy: Puccho (that chewy candy with the "bits" inside)
Last Time I've Been To The CinePlex To See A Movie: Back when Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises was released....when a mass shooting at a midnight screening at a theatre in Colorado made headline news that summer.
Personal Favourite Gourmet Pizza: (tie) Buddy's Pizza, which is a local chain, and a local branch of a Canadian franchise called Boston's.
