Hey frens happy new year!
New year new me!

So like bad news is, this account is probably going to be, for the most part dead. I haven't really watched mlp lately, so lack of inspiration. Don't get me wrong, I still love drawing the characters! I still may post occasionally. Also even if I'll most likely never post as often as I used to, I will most definitely be on this account to look at art of people I've watched!  There's one big piece I wanted to finish up so hopefully that will be done sometime? I still do draw however! Just not pones, also I post very infrequently. Here's a sneak peak of something I worked on over the break! C: 
Snek by AquaGalaxy
My other account is Astruma if you still would like to see some non-pone art. 

Okay now that the basics are over I just wanna talk about why I was super inactive. I used to lie a lot and say it was because I had my studies which although was partially true, but like truth is I had the time to draw if I wanted despite my studies. U know what it was? owo mental health issues. I was basically one big dumb darn idiot sandwich and let it get really bad without doing anything about it for years and was like "lmao no big deal". I won't go into too many details but like I fucked myself real bad. Starting to do stuff that'll actually improve that. So for all you big doofuses out there, you've heard "it gets better" well lemme tell you it also can get a lot worse if you just let it sit and get worse. If you're dealin with mental issues please uwu get uwu some uwu help uwu.  

Thank you for listening to my TED talk. No I'm not a furry I just really like uwu.

Anyways cheers and I hope you all have a super stellar 2019. 
ITS THaT TIME OF THE YEAR BOIS
FREE ART!
WOO!

I cometh from the grave to continue my tradition.
What do you have to do? Tell me what you want me to draw! Can be canon characters, your oc, anything! 


RULES: 

  • No humans allowed, animals only! (anthro okay, but my anthro skills aren't hot)
  • No nsfw 
  • Provide reference IMAGE if character is not official
  • your account must be at least 2 weeks old
comment below to enter C:
note: if you won in any of the events before, you are totally allowed to re-enter again! If you get drawn though I will just draw one more piece than usual to compensate. 

update: please comment what you want me to draw. 


Here was last year's batch
Holiday sketches by AquaGalaxy

Raffle closes on the Dec 17th. Art will be done sometime during my break :> 
Good luck my dudes.
UPDATE:
If your account is 2 weeks or less, you are not eligible to be a part of this raffle. Why? This prevents people from making a new account and joining again. I don't draw people on this account so those are also void here. (anthro is fine, but I cannot guarantee this looking good because I never draw anthro haha) Give people a fair chance, don't be a dick, get on your alt account and join again mkay?  
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Okay so I've basically vanished haha.  And its kind of hard explaining why because I don't really know myself. Weird feels. 

But hey! It was always a tradition for me to do this. So like every year, I'm offering free sketch requests!


What you have to do! (comment on this journal)
- If canon characters: Just tell me what'd you like, no ref required
- If oc: Provide a link of your character.
- Can be pony or animal/anthro but no guarantee on quality if its not a pony :0 
- Won't do nsfw simply because I'm not good at it nor is it my thing haha. Nothing against ya tho

This will be a raffle
At least 5 winners, I'll do more if I have time. 

I will then randomly generate a number and winners get art! Simple. 

Here were last year's winners and sketches:  Raffle winner edition sketches by AquaGalaxy
(if you won last year you can still again, but second time winners will not be counted towards the 5 winners minimum, all this means is I'll draw more to compensate and give others a chance if a last year winner gets chosen again. No, I will not judge you for entering again even if you won last year!)

__________________________________________________________________________________

Note unrelated to raffle:
Commissions and art trades will be closed indefinitely until I feel like reopening them. Things just don't feel right lately. Like I said, don't know why, nor do I know how to explain. So i'll just leave it at that. 
HI
WASSUP
So I'm very bad at explaining myself. And when that happens I just run. And that means I ditch my responsibilities :33333
And just cut off all media. Which is why I've been away for months lol
Can't articulate a thing weee
So there are 31 notes right now I have not touched or seen. 
Nice, i'll do those later. 

Realistically, I really wanted to make this journal just to say that I will 100% be completing anything I originally planned to finish. 
I'm finishing up exams in may, and will have to see how things go. 

Sorry to all people trying to talk to meh and waiting for art stuff :c
Yeah I'm not good at maintaining relations haha
Update: Due to a DA glitch, there were two duplicated journals, if you commented on the first one, I've already recorded the link, no worries :3

AYyy 
So its December and that means its time to be givin gifts, singing bad songs.
Just like last year, I'm giving out free art! :3
These will be coloured sketches~

All you have to do is drop a link (if possible,on deviantart not in stash) of what character your want me to draw! Can be canon or not, preferably pony or mlp related but other characters are okay too. 



There will be at least 5 artpieces given out!

Was confused about all the inbox message explosions ahhaa

Fundraising for people in need!, sketch coms

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 7, 2015, 2:43 PM


Curse me and my ignorant butt for not seeing some of the things happening earlier, but I'd really appreciate if you'd help out the following people! 


Celebi-Yoshi had her father pass away a while ago, and really needs the finances to support herself and her family. You can find more info here
Life, family emergency, lossHello friends,
Yesterday morning, my father passed away very unexpectedly. I was visiting my home at the time. I was very close to him.
My life will start change in so many ways, now that I've lost but the way that it will start to hurt us first when we need some time to mourn is that money will run out. My father supported all of us because he had a very good job, and he was planning on working for a few more years. A lot of supporting myself and my family will fall to me now, but my brother and I are still full time students, and we cannot get jobs yet. The price of living in Boston is very high, and I only have rent money saved up for five more months in my apartment. My program at school lasts longer than that, and this is all very scary for me. I feel terrible asking for money at a time like this, but I know that keeping our life steady and being able to pay bills and afford meals is important.
It would give me some comfort if anyone could contribute to my Patreon:
htt
Support her patreon : www.patreon.com/Dawnfire?ty=h

Earthsong9405 : Her brother has an eye condition called  Keratoconus and really needs to the funds to have a surgery, more info can be found on her tumblr here: earthsong9405.tumblr.com/ ,
Please go fund them here: www.gofundme.com/sd6tujpw


Every bit counts, please consider helping them out! ;m;
My best wishes to them both~

I will be taking sketch commissions to help out, I will take the money from the sketch coms I earn and split it between them. 
They look like this:  Winter by AquaGalaxy

Prices range from $20-$40, 
You must provide character reference, backgrounds are decided by me sorry!
I can't take much because I've been busy but I'll try my best.
Current fundraiser earnings:
1. $32 Mimiero Sketch C: Gears by AquaGalaxy
2. $35 LCut  C: by AquaGalaxy
3. $45 Mimiero  Sketch C: Mimiero by AquaGalaxy
4. $75 CAD fernindt 
5.

You can send the money directly to them as well, but I will need to approve any donations through them~ Thank you!

Update + using my art

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 27, 2015, 5:56 PM


Heya! :3

So I hope everyone's doing good! ^v^
I've been inactive, and unfortunately not doing much replying~
I've missed many important birthdays, and I am so terribly sorry about that D: 
Hopefully I can finish some gifts :c


Using my art notes:


Recently, I've had many people asking about using my art for their covers, albums, etc. Yes! You are allowed to use my art in any non-commercial or abusive way. You don't need to ask me~. But if the art piece is a commission, please ask the commissioners and owners of the oc featured in it! 

Thanks for reading and have a nice day C:

I really want to make tutorials and all but honestly I suck at explaining my ugly scribbling technique XD
I'll try to stream more during summer and perhaps record a few things if my computer allows me but otherwise, any suggestions on tutorials? 
Perhaps I could post wips?

Update, birthdays, stuff

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 3, 2014, 8:14 PM


So this semester is actually a lot worse then I anticipated. I barely have any time to draw and next semester is going to be worse. Thing is, I'm going to miss a whole ton of birthdays and I probably already have. So if I can't wish you a happy birthday or draw you a gift, I'm sorry. Of course I'll still make time for close friends and family. (you know who you are <33)
I'm also really angry at myself for being stupid and not getting good grades which really, REALLY annoys me. 
I have not replied to a lot of notes and barely any comments, so i hope people read this and understand it's just because I have work.
I'm not sure when I'll next post art. Probably no art for another 3 weeks minimum derrrrppp. 
Yes, I know I'm being really unproductive. whoops.

have a good day/night.
