The Equestria Daily Artist Training Ground is back and I decided to take part again, at least so long as I have a few spare minutes here and there. The ATG is fun, simply because it's neat challenging myself to the daily themes...or seeing how far into the absurd I can push the daily theme!
Today's assignment was "Ponies Idling." I immediately thought of a pony in a car, which in turn reminded me of my husband's recent idea for Derpy driving the Batmobile. Which led to...plush turtles. Somehow.
Of the thousand and one things I needed to get done tonight...this seemed to be the most important.
I know you get a hundred score messages of appreciation and love every day, Ms. Faust. But today, on your birthday, I have to tell you once again how much your work- as an artist and as a woman- means to me. You have inspired me, you have given shape to my own hopes and dreams. And, in specific, this pastel-colored world of ponies has opened up a direct link to the joy and wonder of being a child all over again.
I don't have the words to properly, completely, and definitively express everything I want to say, Ms. Faust. So I will simply say-
Thank you. And I wish you the very happiest of birthdays!
I'm on someone elses internet here in NJ as I'm submitting this. I'm being naaaaaaaauuuuggghty.
One of the best punned titles ever. I really loved these filly comics and more cloudsdale. IDK why I'm doing so many of them. Personally....there's a lot of untapped ideas. Yup, another Spitfire and Derpy being silly comic. Cousin wants more....I will give him more.
Anyway enjoy guys. I can't reply to comments till tonight....back to the beach. WAVES!!!
Time spent: 20 hours How I did it: Paper then Photoshop CS5
Made this really awesome comic! which was inspired by my Squeezin' It series. I commented that I was a little sad I didn't have this idea myself first, but she was really nice and said I was allowed to draw it in my own style! What a cool gal!
