For followers and such, just letting you know my silence this time is not from laziness or other things like that’s happened before.  I’m actually working on several things.

For the most part it’s commissions, which require a lot of research this time around, (fic reading mostly) so I’m trying to catch up with that.  

I also have a few personal projects I’m laying the groundwork towards.  One of which is gonna be a cute little series I came up with and surprised no one to my knowledge has tried it despite the fandom’s attempt at ponifying everything.  (Patrons will find out what these projects are really soon. ;) )

In the meantime, have some fan art for some of the fics I’m reading.  


First being Eos from  Fallout Equestria: Broken Bonds by Kippershy, a buddy of mine. Once dead, but now restarted and continuing where it left off.  Those who browsed my earliest work would remember this being the source of some of my first commissions.


Second is Roulette from Fallout Equestria: Red 36 by El Dee.  A post-sunshine fic that’s off to an amazing start and with an equally impressive main character.  I’ve already fallen in love with this fic, and I feel you would too.

Stay tuned, and please, if you'd like to support me, please check out my patreon! www.patreon.com/brisineo

Thanks, and stay tuned

My Patreon is now live!

www.patreon.com/brisineo

Due to much delay from commissions and preparations, (and a bit of self-doubt) I’ve gone ahead and started it up.  It still is in it’s infancy, so I’m not expecting much at the moment.  Though through it, I hope that it’ll give me motivation to be consistent and expand my skills and styles.  Current goal at the moment is to make it so I can stream regularly.

Also, I’m preparing for BABSCon again this year.  Almost decided against it, but who am I to skip out on a good time, eh?  You’ll see me there and as always, I’ll have my art supplies with me.

And by the way, anyone interested in my patreon will be able to see a special version of this pic uploaded a few days from now.  Don’t worry, I don’t plan to hide most of my work behind a paywall, but if you’re interested in seeing some behind the scenes, read about my process, or even want tips and tutorials to get you started drawing yourself, you may want to drop by.)

So as I've stated on my Tumblr, I've been away for a couple weeks for reasons, but I'm back into working on commissions now and catching up.  Along with that, Dakis will be available for individual purchase soon.  When they're available, I'll let you know how you can get one.

Also, I’ve definitely decided I’ll start a Patreon soon!  Only thing I’m working on right now for that is what I want to do for rewards if any of you are actually willing to even spend anything on me.  Not that I think you would, but if you have any suggestions, please let me know.  I want to get it up and running by next week, if things go like I want them to.

One slot is now open for commissions, so if you think you want a daki, better get it now!

-Bris

Finally all slots are full.  Stay tuned for an opening when it becomes available!

That feel when you’ve been meaning to start up your commissions for a couple days now, but you run into internet problems that take up your entire time.

As such, I don’t have any fancy pictures that show the various pricing options ready right now, BUT, starting right now I will be taking commissions and I have 5 available slots!

Contact me either by sending me a note here on Deviantart, contact me on Tumblr, or email me at stormeyebris@gmail.com with the kind of commission you want, and as much detail as you want of it, and I’ll give you a quote as quickly as I can, maybe help bounce ideas off of you too so you can get the best bang for your buck!

Also just some things to get out of the way or clarify:

  • Available Options are Pencil Sketch, Pen and/or marker Art, Digital Art, or Vector
  • Preferred commissions are MLP related
  • Maximum Rating: PG-13  No clop
  • I WILL however, agree to Dakimakuras, provided it matches the rating.  Contact me for details.
  • Payment must be received before I upload the commission (Paypal preferred, same email address)
  • Pricing is mostly based on how long it takes or how labor intensive the project is, so quick and easy things will be rather cheap.  Big pictures, may cost a bit.


Thanks so much!  Can’t wait to get started, and feel free to contact me if you have questions!

So, I know I’ve fallen off the face of the earth several times.  And I feel like it’s time to go up to you honest like, for reals this time.

I used to be a very busy man, and my work life consumed me.  The past 5 years were an adventure full of stress and joy both, and honestly, I could never be more thankful.  Because even though I was making way less than I really could have been making, and I’ve considered throwing in the towel more than once, the friends I made through it, and the love for my family that I worked to help were what drove me on.  As a person, I feel like I improved greatly.

But after all was said and done, I never could really have the energy to sit down an work on my skills and passions.  I’d try sometimes, and pull through on the rare occasion when inspiration and freetime merged, but I had no motivation for consistency, knowing that it would use up the few hours I had to do other important things and take care of myself…  Until now.

I finally quit my dayjob to get a new perspective on life, so to speak.  Look for what I really want to do.  So, after some time to catch up on a few things, I’ve decided I’m going all into this.  Commissions will be available VERY soon, and you can fully expect them to be done in a timely manner.  I’ll even post updates on progress and share some techniques I use, looking for constructive criticism to improve.  I’m also looking into things like Patreon.  I don’t expect anyone to join in, but hey, if people do want it, I’ll definitely be putting out things more consistently.

And even moreso, as you can pretty much see, I am in LOVE with my ink markers.  Expect lots of sketches and pieces with them alongside my digital stuff.  Best purchase of my life, and it’s really inspiring me to get back into drawing in general.

Like my job in before, I want to experience a new thing in life, and being a consistent artist for the purpose of providing things that make people happy is what I want to try next.  So I hope that the few followers that still have me will let that.  I'm reworking my Deviantart Page, as well as updating my commission pricing to work around my newfound skills, so stay tuned for that.  I will be seeing you all very soon.

-Bris

I know I've been dead for a while, but I'm still in the whole pony business. I'm just about to head out to BABScon in San Francisco.

I'll have art supplies with me, so you can hit me up for a sketch or two if you can find me. (Hint: I have a scarf with Faust's and Larson's autographs) You can also yell at me about when I'm starting commissions again and where I've been. That's fine too.

You'll probably see me hanging around the artist booths and Fallout Equestria panels, obviously.

See ya there!

Red Bull Art of Motion

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 30, 2016, 9:21 PM


So I've been absent the past few weeks from my life being sprung up in chaos again, but it's on a positive note here.

If any of you are parkour and freerunning enthusiasts or fans, you may know about the Red Bull Art of Motion competition being held in Santorini, Greece this year.  Basically the Olympics of Freerunning.

I'm not anywhere good enough to go there, but my younger brother is!

It's livestreaming tomorrow at 4:00pm in Greek time, which is pretty early in the morning for Americans watching.  Bit of a late warning, but you can always watch later.

My brother, Calen Chan, will be wearing a shirt I specifically designed for him to wear in the competition, and I hope you'll support him too.  In his famous words, bro, You Got This!

EDIT:
HE GOT 4TH PLACE IN THE FINALS!

And after the crash I got from having too much FUN over there, (and the crappy train ride back.  "overshot your station" my...) along with getting my butt to clean out muh dusty computer finally,  (I. could. peel. it. off.  EUGH!)

I feel like I'm getting back into the groove again.

It was fun doing a couple drawings for Drakeheart Designs over at the con.  She made my Murky plushie, and I seriously can't repay her enough for it.  Hope the person who got the runner up prize for that auction enjoys the artwork.  That was actually fun to make.

Though I keep zoning out, I've got at least one commission rolling now.  Preliminary sketching and mapping out all done, and ready to start lining it.  After that, I'll start accepting commissions again, so lets go!

Rough week, and CMPC

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 12, 2016, 6:09 PM


So it's been a tough and really busy week (and a half) for me.  Absolutely no work done on commissions, so I do apologize.  Nothing frightening, or anything, but just daily stresses.

However I'm mostly past that point now and will be working on my commissions as much as I can leading up to my next big event at the end of this week.  Crystal Mountain Pony Con!

I'm not gonna miss it like last year. (why did no one tell me? WHY?!) Even if I have to take the train.  So I'll see you there Friday and Saturday.  Look for the scarf with Faust's signature. ;)

Back from Vacation

Journal Entry: Mon May 23, 2016, 2:19 PM


I’m still making dust clouds from ruffling my hair, feel like I’ve been ran over by a truck, and I probably smell like a mix of potato chips, mud, and gunpowder, but I’m back, and thankfully alive.

Looking down from the edge of a 1000+ft cliff of loose rock can really put things in perspective.

Restarting work on commissions now.

Vacation

I tend to do this a lot when I do commissions, eh?

I'll be gone for the week vacationing with family. I'll get back to work on commissions when I get back.

I plan on releasing a personal project/sudden inspiration pic I've been working on for hours now soon. Stay tuned!

Back from BABS

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 24, 2016, 6:00 PM


Wow!  And what a blast I had there!

I actually didn't expect so many big names there to talk to.  Faust, Peterep, NCMares, Somber... Everyone was so friendly and open, and talking to them really gave me a lot of encouragement and inspiration.

Now back to business.  Almost done finally with that private commission, after which, I will open up regular commissions!

I'll also be doing a LOT more art.  The inspiration got to me, and I'll be working hard this week on bringing myself up to speed, because from here, it's full speed onwards!

BABScon

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 19, 2016, 11:32 AM


So BABS is just a few days away, and again, I'm excited to announce that I'll be flying out to be there this year!

I will not be holding any booths or panels. (intentionally at least... I hijacked a panel the last time I went to a con, so we'll see) So you will be seeing me wandering around and checking things out for at least Friday and Saturday.  If there's a Fallout Equestria related panel or artist booth, you'll probably be seeing me hovering there.

I'll also have my Murky Plushie, (hugs allowed) and some paper and pencils with me, sketching on my downtime, which will make me stand out somewhat. (if my... eye catching choice of clothing doesn't already. ;) )

Either way, I'm really excited to go to my first con, and see many of the artists, fans, and any of my watchers in person.  Thanks and see you there!

News, apology, etc...

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 15, 2016, 12:26 PM


So, you may not have heard from me in a long while, and some of you might be worried.  That's understandable, I was worried myself.

To put it frankly, over the last few months I had a few family and personal problems that needed to be sorted out, giving me pretty much no time or motivation to draw or do anything.  Even now it's kind of hard to kick myself into gear.  So I was essentially forced into a hiatus of sorts.  And for that, I want to apologize for not keeping you updated.  I'm not the sort to complain to most people, even on the internet.

However, I plan for that to change soon.

I'm currently dealing with a private commission right now, but after that is complete, I'm opening commissions again! So stay tuned!

Also, be on the lookout for stuff I'll be doing on the side.  I've been working on some new art styles, techniques, and concepts.  Mainly based off of vivid dreams I've had that I use for inspiration.  I'm looking forward to sharing it.

And lastly, I have more good news!  If you're heading to BABScon in San Francisco, CA this April, you will find me there!  I'm not intending to have a booth there, but you may find me talking to various artists and hanging around any FoE related panels and merch.  I'll have a sketchpad with me, so you may be able to get a sketch or two out of me if you ask nicely.

Thanks for all the comments and appreciation you give.  It keeps me going.  See you soon.

Season 4, Episode 3 review

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 16, 2015, 12:30 PM


Ah, got around to downloading the rest of the season so I can be reviewing these episodes more frequently.

It is kind of daunting to go out of the way and write entire essays describing the intricacies of a cartoon pony show, but at the same time, dissecting it really enhances my own appreciation for the show and the story that slowly unfolds over this and the next season.

Obviously starting out the season, the mood tones down dramatically to a casual comedy thriller ep, which is entertaining in all it's awesome ways.

ANIMATION ==== 9.6

Obviously they made a noticeable step down from the animation complexity of the season opener, going back to the high color, less dynamic standard we're used to in the show.

However, there were points that stood out immensely.  I LOVED how the shots were arranged to show the true size and complexity of the castle ruins themselves.  Feeling the age and sheer expansiveness of the location really struck out with the wide angle shots, usage of distance fog and textures, etc. giving it a very wide open but eerie feel.  So many details were hidden in the backgrounds here that if you look you can see something new every time you rewatch the episode.

There was a great balance of background emphasis and character movement in the animation throughout, making this actually feel slightly more well made and balanced than the season opener, which was not without it's noticeable flaws.

And let us not forget the faces...



BACKGROUND MUSIC ==== 9.2

The BGM lacked slightly in some areas, being very quiet and light, giving the atmosphere more of a comedy and mystery appeal instead of horror atmosphere, which was mostly intentional.

I did like the change of instruments and musical cues between the different groups wandering the castle.  Fluttershy and Rarity using more flutes and light instruments, showing their delicate approach, Dash and AJ's being more heroic and rushing with symphonic instruments to emphasize their bravado, and Twilight's being full of the more mystical sounding instruments such as bells, metallophones and such for her fascination of the castle's history.

Then of course the organ comes in and it doesn't just sound when Pinkie plays it, but becomes part of the BGM which adds the tension and grandeur to the whole atmosphere.  Developing the soundtrack over the atmosphere was pretty well done here, and I loved it.


CHARACTERS ====


 7.2

Given that Castle Mane-ia is supposed to be more of a situational humor episode and not a character-centered episode, of course many of the characters never really stood out except for their interactions with each other.

Twilight spent most of the episode sitting around too immersed in her own reading to really be a pivotal character here, and her speech in the end was more of an "I told you so" sort of speech to comfort her friends knowing almost from the start there wasn't anything to be afraid of, so she gets an average score.

7.8


Despite her not contributing much, I found Rarity's reactions to the situation cute and hilarious.  Her interest in restoring the castle's tapestries were rather interesting, but it at the same time, humorously distracted her from what was going on.  Including consideration for what anyone else was doing.  Which also makes her dynamic with Flutteshy a bit interesting, showing that while she cares for her, Rarity isn't beyond dragging her along for the ride, despite her obvious protests.  Fluttershy's reaction to Angel's apparent death was a bittersweet highlight.  Talk about hysteria, poor girl.

8.0

Again, I found the arrogant bravado of both of these girls throughout this episode adorable and humorous.  You could tell that Rainbow knew AJ was as scared as she was and vice versa but at the same time neither would be willing to admit it until the other spoke first.  They were much more content to stick together for each other's comfort than be willing to go at it alone, though.  A cool little friendship dynamic between the two.

4.5

I found Pinkie to be the biggest letdown of this episode for several reasons.  Her being there at the organ was necessary for the comedy, sure, but her reasons in being there were lackluster at best and just made her appear more as a random nuisance than a character.  She never really added anything and rather made the ending of the episode rather weak. 


STORY ==== 6.0

This was an alright episode, but not the strongest of the season by far.  Where it gained in the animation and music categories, it lacked severely in characterization and storytelling, with it being more of a humorous filler episode to introduce the new season's play on letter writing with the new journal concept and introduction of the Castle of the Two Sisters as being a new key location to be explored.  One of those episodes you kinda have to watch to get the whole premise of the season, unfortunately, and it devolved the characters slightly in comparison to other episodes.  Maybe the score could increase if the Pony of Shadows was relevant in a future episode maybe, but I don't know...


MORAL ==== 6.0

The moral(s) described at the end of this episode was more shoehorned in than normal, bearing very little build up or relevance to the actual events in the episode.  Along with the almost annoying "I told you so" way Twilight said it, it sort of lacked impact, despite the rather shockingly deep meaning of the words spoken.

OVERALL ==== 7.3

Not my favorite episode in the season by far.  But it did introduce key elements that would become pivotal in the upcoming season, such as the Friendship Journal entries, and the Castle of the Two Sisters location being expanded upon.  A sort of "You really shouldn't have to watch, but kinda do if you want to know what's going on" kind of episode.  More for the ridiculous laughs and silliness than story progression, but that's just me.  And again, the animation quality of this episode stands out among the rest in it's artistic quality and unique atmosphere, and that shouldn't be looked over so lightly.  Enjoyable at the very least.
