My Bio

Ciao. Musta na. Welcome. Have a look around.

Normally I'd ask that you don't write a comment on my profile solely for the purpose of thanking for a fave, llama, etc. as instead, I would rather thank you for making nice art or being so kind. If you do anyway I probably won't particularly mind and may even reply, maybe.

Otherwise, I read every comment I receive, even if I may not respond directly. If I respond, it's usually to direct queries that I feel I have a proper answer to, which is because I don't want comments on my uploads to be mostly from myself. Of course, I genuinely try to appreciate the various comments I receive, even if I don't actually say so.

Other info to see first:

:bulletred: I don't do requests or commissions.

:bulletred: My statement on bases.

Generally, I don't make anything involving:

:bulletred: Derpy Hooves, Rainbow Dash, or Vinyl Scratch

:bulletred: Non-platonic romance/shipping

:bulletred: NSFW and/or Adult-oriented work

About me:

I'm Ryan, and I'm from San Francisco, California/USA; "ChainChomp2" is one of my names, but the specific name I go by on here. On this account, you'll mostly find content related to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (MLPFiM). English is my native language, while I studied Spanish (Español) as a second language in school, and have been exposed to Filipino (Tagalog) for much of my life, not that I can understand it. Just in case you'll communicate to me in any of these languages.

Other than My Little Pony, I'm into civil aviation and traveling the world, while on the side I enjoy a Nintendo game or follow the artistic gymnastics scene.

About my DA and its content:

Between 2013 and 2020, the featured character/avatar was Crescent Moon, a canonical background pony from MLPFiM, as I did not have my own OC. In March 2020, I unveiled Topaz Tracker as my OC, and until this time, I stated that I did not upload or publish content on MLPFiM OCs.

Much of what's posted here here is traced from or heavily modeled on the art style of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. This can consist of anything from a high quality image or resource of a character directly from a frame of the show, or fan art inspired by it.

I don't make bases (the ones you use with MSPaint, GIMP, etc.), and I don't endorse them either; I ask that no bases are made from anything I post here. You might however still find bases of my older uploads circulating, from before I had stated any type of stance on the matter. You may also refer to my longer statement on bases.

I've finally updated the bio section of my profile, since it was outdated on me making OCs (which obviously wasn't accurate having unveiled one 11 months ago). It's also substantially cut down compared to before, if to be a bit more streamlined (I'

Mostly for the sake of having something on record or in writing (other than my initial statement linked on my profile) rather than genuinely expecting anything to happen, but when a number of the poses are custom rather than being entire cop-outs from the reference material it makes it that much more obvious. I almost forgot part of why I didn't come back to this site or stopped formally uploading in a public manner in the first place for a while. It's a strange feeling, browsing the horse-net and seeing several people's OCs derived from things you recognize as stuff you worked on as just their profile pictures at best and YCHs and commissions at worst, or even when you're out on the streets during BronyCon 2019 and see at least one person's badge of their OC being derived from one of your things that seemed to take off randomly. You might put a name next to it at first or cite your reference material, but once it's on the Internet and once it takes off you kinda get used to it

Thanks for the fav's.

Haha yeah I was searching for reuses of my stuff to add to the specific faves/collection folder for it and saw that, somehow I'd never encountered it in the years it's been up even when I saw the Black Friday one. Had a nice laugh seeing it!

If YouTube was not so trashy I would be making more of them.

Hey dude!

Remember this image?

Necktie'd Doctor Whooves

I Kinda use it for this

If you are not fine with me using your image, tell me, I will remove it!

Hi! My upload was a direct vectorization of a character from a screencap, with the body reconstructed to the best of my skills and knowledge of the art style and models at the time. The image at its basis is not mine and really just exists as a resource and has been used as such over the years, so I don't mind it being used.

It'd be different if it was one of my more original works or gift art works done in the style of the TV show, but not a 1-to-1 direct trace, such as this, though this particular image of Doctor Whooves isn't one of them, so again I don't really mind.

Thanks for letting me know, though!

Thanks for the fav on my ACNH art! :D
