Hey, that's a nice-lookin' bandwagon!
From :iconcascayd:

Oh! And if there are any ships not included here that you'd like to know my opinion about, just ask in the comments! :)



Rarity x Fancy Pants Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ I just really appreciate Fancy Pants, he reminds me of Rarity a lot in that he fully embraces his love for the finer things in life, but isn't condescending or patronizing of others. Both of these pones come across as being down-to-earth without denying themselves their genuine interests. So together I imagine they would get along splendidly!

Discord x Sunburst Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral ~ Honestly, a lot of these will probably be neutral since I actually haven't had much exposure to them... all pretty rare ships at least on my side of the Internet :3 But this seems like a cute idea, I'll have to give it a bit more research, thought ^_^

Pinkie Pie x Cheese Sandwich Stamp by Cascayd ~ Dislike ~ As a couple, anyway! I think they're both great characters and cute together, but I really see their potential as good buddies rather than lovers.

Lightning Dust x Thunderlane Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral ~ Meh. I don't care for Lightning Dust... honestly, it's not even her personality, but like I don't like looking at her? XD Her colors jar me and her hair is weird?? XD I know, shallow as hell XD but idk I just don't have much interest in her so I don't really think about ships for her. Thunderlane is a cutie patootie, and deserves better imo :3

Celestia x Chrysalis Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ Tsundere Bug Babe and Big Sun Butt? Yes plz ^_^ I think Celestia could handle Chrys better than anyone; I think things would easily roll off her back, but she'd also know when and how to confront the bug and help her navigate her rough edges. And I think Chrys would help Celestia loosen up and learn how to look after herself better-- it's my belief that Celestia is a little *too* self-sacrificing and doesn't take enough "me time"; and I think Chrys could teach her those skills :3

Applejack x Troubleshoes Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral ~ Kinda cute, not really on my radar though :3

Applejack x Coloratura Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ Probably my top alternate AJ ship (maybe tied with AppleShy). I 100% believe there were a few puppy-love sparks between these two at camp, and I could see something rekindling when they reunite... not sure if it would last but I definitely think they'll be great friends, lovers or no, for the rest of their lives ^_^

Applejack x Prince Blueblood Stamp by Cascayd ~ Dislike ~ No, I don't just hate on Blueblood ships; I actually really love Blueblood (his comic with Shining Armor won me over, also ship itttt). This, though, I just don't see why/how XD

Pinkie Pie x Luna Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral ~ It's cute, I guess, never seen a lot of content for it and it doesn't really excite me, but cute.

Marble Pie x Cheerilee Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ I've never seen or thought of this one before, but something in it feels a little twinkly in my heart?? ^_^

Twilight Sparkle x Tempest Shadow Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ I shipped this before I even saw the movie, thanks to fan-art XD And, after seeing the movie, they've really grown on me. I've always had a thing for shipping Twilight with villains/rivals, Idk why it just appeals to me so much xD I was dead when Twilight's excitement over Tempest's fireworks made purple tsundere blush, so freakin' cute ^_^

Rainbow Dash x Soarin Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ It's okay, I used to like them more, now I think they're kinda cute but I prefer them as friends.

Pinkie Pie x Party Favor Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Coot ^_^

Cadence x Shining Armor Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral/Dislike ~ Not a big fan, mostly wish both of these characters had more exposure in the series... I liked them better after Flurry was born, you see more of their dynamic and how they interact, but Idk they've just never knocked my socks off XD Partially because I have alternate ships for both of them that I like better XD 

Treehugger x Zecora Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Not one I'd given much consideration to in the past, but seems cute! 

Spitfire x Soarin Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral ~ *shrug*

Applejack x Zephyr Breeze Stamp by Cascayd ~ Dislike ~ I don't think I could see this ship even if you glued it to my face XD

Discord x Celestia Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ Old ship, nice ship ^_^ 

Rainbow x Twilight Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ These two were once my OTP but I kinda fell out of love with them for no reason XD I still think they're cute though, and the dynamic is a lot of fun to play with in art ^_^ 

Trixie x Starlight Stamp by Cascayd ~ OTP ~ BABES! It's so silly, because Trixie totally drives Starlight crazy and I think they would have endless problems as a couple, spending thousands of bits on marriage counselling, but at the same time I feel like they understand each other better than anypony else, and they can laugh together at themselves very easily; and they're just so doggone precious ^_^ 

Pinkie x Trouble Shoes Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral ~ Honestly still trying to find a good ship for Troubleshoes... I really like him but I can't really see him with any of the Mane 6 :3

Princess Luna x Tempest Shadow Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Nice one! 

Trixie x Maud Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ I blame MustLoveFrogs for giving me feels for this ship... not that I'm complaining, it's adorable!

Zephyr Breeze x Limestone Pie Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Also not one I'm familiar with, but I can see the potential!

Luna x Thorax Stamp by Cascayd ~ Neutral/Dislike ~ Meh XD

Rainbow Dash x Zephyr Breeze Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ To be fair, I didn't care for this deeply problematic ship until I saw Ashleigh and Ryan on a panel together at EFNW and their banter (both in-character and out) kinda killed me XD I don't know that I'd ever see them tying the knot or anything, but I'd be endlessly entertained to watch them deal with their drama together XD Does that make me awful? XD

Ember x Spike x Thorax Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ It's fun, they'd be fun, once Spike is a little older I could see it. I like Spike X Ember and Spike X Thorax separately, so I don't see why they wouldn't be appealing altogether :) 


Zecora x Fluttershy Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Fluffy nature pones, yes!

Starlight x Flash x Trixie Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love??~ Not gonna lie, this seems kinda hot...

Zephyr Breeze x Prince Blueblood Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Also hot?? :3

Rarity x Capper Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Kinda cute, kinda strange... I like it ^_^

Discord x Trixie Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ Problematic magicians who talk literal trash about each other and I live for it.

Fluttershy x Marble Pie Stamp by Cascayd ~ Like ~ Very soft... ^_^

Trixie x Prince Blueblood Stamp by Cascayd ~ Hate ~ I just really nope XD

Derpy x Dr. Whooves Stamp by Cascayd ~ OTP!!! ~ They make me weep, I love them <3

Starlight Glimmer x Sunburst Stamp by Cascayd ~ Dislike ~ They're buds, I don't ship it though. XD

Sugar Belle x Big Mac Stamp by Cascayd ~ Dislike ~ What ho, another canon ship Shelly can't enjoy, what a surprise XD

Moondancer x Donut Joe Stamp by Cascayd ~ Love ~ So nice!! 

TAGS: Mm idk go ahead and do this if you like!! It's fun! Thanks to Cascayd for making it!

I think it's time I address the elephant in the room that probably no one but me has noticed or even cares about, and to which I'm probably giving way too much credit for being strange.
But what ho, might as well make note of it.
Why haven't I been drawing as many ponies lately?

The short answer is, I just don't have as many Pony-related ideas at the moment. Most of my ideas are centered on The Harmony Guild and I'm trying to let the comic progress naturally and, like, not spoil it before it's run something of a course. So there's that.

The other short answer is, I'm simply more interested in drawing other things right now. Part of that is because I'm not currently caught up on MLP, so I'm not as inundated with the show as before, hence not as flooded with inspiration. And the thing is, I have a lot of interests... my Gallery doesn't even reflect half of the fandoms I'm involved in, or my hobbies, or the things that make me happy, or the things I've been hoping to create! Needless to say, I've really been enjoying branching out from my usual content and drawing more Marvel, Disney, Dreamworks, etc... and it's really encouraged me to do more of that.

It really just feels great to be back at it with the things that have been important to me for years, long before MLP:FiM even existed, y'know? Hell, I used to draw so much Spider-Man... and so much Disney... Sometimes you don't realize how much you missed something until you re-enter it for the first time in a while.. ^_^

As for life in general, things are going okay; very busy, but okay. If I'm honest, I've been depressed; certainly not the worst I've ever been, but still. It does make the simple things difficult, and having some rather crippling bouts of anxiety on top of the depression really hasn't helped. 

You know what has helped? 
My friends ^_^ 
and drawing lots of Marvel ^_^
and watching great shows like New Girl, HTTYD:Race to the Edge, and Tangled ^_^
and holding my cats and my bunnies and my puppy ^_^

And my friends ^_^
Did I already say that? <3

In other news, I'm happy to say I got a part-time housecleaning job! Fortunately the hours are such that it shouldn't interfere with commission work at all.

Related, commissions are still closed, info Journal is under construction, and the waitlist for the next round is almost full! If you want to reserve a slot, let me know ASAP! I'll be accepting PayPal and Points this time around. Many old styles have been thrown out, as I don't want to do them anymore :3 but lots of new, prettier style options will be available to order :) 

Anywho, thanks for everything <3 I'm also coming up on 1K Watchers, which is very exciting! I want to do something cool to celebrate, I have no idea what though... would be open to suggestions if anybody has any! :D 

Love and hugs to all <3

Haven't done one of these in a while!

BACKGROUND (optional):

had to share here too, Rosco loves RariJack okay
Does anyone know the latest on Jenn Blake, aka PonyGoddess, the MLP comics artist who's been battling brain cancer for the last few years? I haven't heard any updates for like a year, and a lot of her social media has been deactivated... as well as the gofundme page that had been raising money for her treatment. I fear the worst. :'( 

I am only grateful, whatever the case, that I had the chance to see her at my first con. She was so open and funny and friendly to the whole room Heart  I kick myself for not going up and talking to her like I wanted to... she seemed very approachable and I would've loved to tell her personally how inspired I was by her work. 

I 100% respect Jenn and her family wanting to stay private in this time. I just wondered if someone else has seen an update that I haven't. Maybe there wasn't any. Just curious. 
Thanks, all Heart 
My good friend :iconbubaiuv: is taking some emergency custom commissions to help out her family. They're only $5 each and very beautiful! She is an awesome designer ^_^ I plan to order one myself, wanted to spread the word meanwhile though!

Check here for examples and further details!

Emergency CustomsAs many of you know, my family has hit a bit of a financial rough patch between my mom's chemo, and my dad's new job. My dad's isn't getting paid until next week and were pretty strapped until then, so emergency customs! One is $5 and you get one of these:

Or you can get 3 for $10. They can be any mlp species, cat thing like capper, seapony, Griffin or whatever. If you can please spread this around!
Some stuffs that have been on my mind :3

On the regularity of uploads... I mean, I know I've never kept much of a schedule, but I have been uploading quite a lot, between commissions and personal scribblings... which is great. But I feel I should just let you guys know, my posts will likely be a bit more far-between (though certainly not few) in the coming year. I have a lot of goals this year, one of which is to get another job, which obviously takes time. In addition, I have a lot of irons in the fire, not just drawing; and I'd like to be able to give them more time than I have been. Things like my music, and writing, and animation. I also want very much to challenge myself, to be more active and involved in my community at home. 

So, yeah, lots going on there! But I will always be posting art whenever possible, because no matter how busy I get, I never stop drawing altogether. Don't ever not draw, y'know? :D

Speaking of which...

On the subject of "The Harmony Guild" comic... Just to preface, YES IT IS 100% HAPPENING and very much in the works at this time; of that I am glad to assure you ^_^ However, I have to be honest with myself: there's no way I'm going to bring what's in my head to life on the timeline I had originally set for myself. Thing is, this project is very dear to me and, while I've been concocting it, technically, for well over a year now, I still feel I have a lot of behind-the-scenes work to do before I'm ready to start the panel art. I want it to be everything that it can be, and give it my very best; and I know I won't be able to do that if I rush myself. So, I'm easing up a bit, and focusing on the script rewrites and getting the stage set and the art style pinned down, and giving this story the time and attention I believe it deserves. Meanwhile, I will be sharing some developmental sketches and other WIP's, including, at some point, the test comic I talked about a little while back. I'll try not to spoil the plot details too much ahead of time, but I thoroughly plan on having some fun with the AU itself, probably even get a chance to explore some elements of the world that won't play much of a role (if any) in the comic. I'm really happy so many of you have expressed such enthusiasm for this AU, and I have plenty of tidbits to share with you during this developmental stage! I hope you'll all have patience and just enjoy the ride with me :)

And... on all my other creations... Fall of the Alicorns, MotoKnight, The Rusty Bit, etc. etc... they're all just here to entertain me, and I'll never stop drawing them ^_^ I'll probably create many more stories and characters and add them to the lineup of craziness as time goes on, and I hope y'all will enjoy watching my descent into OC hell because I don't know how I'll ever stop making more OC's :D (Trust me: I have entire worlds filled with OC's I haven't even drawn yet, they just live in my brain and keep me up at night, this is why I drink coffee XD)

That's all I got right now :3 If you have any questions, feel free to ask! I'm always ready and willing to chat about my projects and offer any insight I can :) Thanks for sticking around, everybody!

I'm weird. I'm a weirdo.

One of my favorite scenes from "New Girl" just makes so much sense for WildeHopps, idk why ^_^

And a very quick and silly one featuring the voice of Ashly Burch (snagged from a compilation) :D

You'll definitely be seeing more of these from me this year!

I love being a cartoon okay :3
Been whittling away at this idea for months, and I'm pretty happy I could finally write lyrics to one of my own compositions :) Was fun!
Hope you enjoy listening :)
Look at all my happy children, courtesy of :iconcastaspellliana: ! I'm so in love with this ^_^

In more relevant news, the new season looks beautiful and I can't wait! Heart Heart
Well, I call that a success! I had quite a few amazing entries... and seriously, this was a tough race. I chose very carefully, but it wasn't easy! To everyone that turned in a design, winner or no, I want to say thank you Heart I honestly wished I could've made all your designs canon, but of course, logic dictates that each character can only have so many different designs. :'(

Here are the winners!

King Stratus ~ :iconshortcake1284:

[FotA Character Design Contest]: King Stratus by shortcake1284
I love the Clydesdale design, especially with his fluffy feet, and his coat pattern! You really captured so much nobility and majesty with this, I can definitely see how you took inspiration from Aslan the Lion. :) I also am living for your headcanon regarding his huge, sharp teeth, and I'm totally using that in canon! ^_^ 

Queen Cirrus ~ :iconkvetina7:

[FotA  Character design contest Queen Cirrus] by Kvetina7
This design really feels like the type of thing I was aiming for in all my early attempts at designing her, but I kept failing whereas you seem to have captured it perfectly Heart A nice balance of femininity and power/majesty, I love her sparse but striking regalia as well as her armor... she looks ready to charge! 

Vox the Avenger ~ :iconpndrws:

[FotA Character Design Contest Vox] by Pndrws
You brought something I hadn't expected from Vox, but when I saw your entry it just clicked with me. He looks older, wiser, than what I initially pictured, but I really like it; it puts him more on a level with Stratus. His armor is also amazing; I can just hear him clanking like a dragon as he gallops into battle!

And there you have it!

To the winners: Please comment on this Journal or note me to claim your prizes! Use this form to claim your art prizes:

And, I think that's about it!
Once again a big thank you to everyone that entered! I can't wait to draw these new amazing characters ^_^ 
Just thought I'd put this out there, since I've received some inquiries regarding my older art.

I've been doing a little housekeeping in my gallery, and sending a lot of old artwork into DA storage, including some commissions. If your commission is no longer available in my gallery, and you would like me to re-send the file to you, just send me a note with your email address and I will get it to you ASAP. You are free to publish/upload/repost commissions you ordered from me anywhere you like, so long as you credit me in the description. :)
If that makes sense? :3

I try to keep my gallery updated so that most of what's available here is on the newer side or, at least, resembles my current "main styles" to some degree. I've worked very hard over the past year to develop my skills as an artist, and while I poured my best efforts at the time into all my commissions, my style has changed a lot and I don't feel those pieces represent my work anymore. I'm more than happy for you, my clients, to have these older pieces though, and to continue sharing them on your platforms if you so desire :D I'm so glad you love them! 

Thank you, all!

Every so often I remember I haven't posted a photo of myself since, like, 200 watchers or so? XD Figured I'd leave this here now that I'm getting close to 900, besides I cut off my hair this week so yeah! Maybe Rosco is in need of a manecut to match? :D
Image by ChoralSeashelleImage by ChoralSeashelle
I haven't had it this short before... it feels so great, I didn't even realize my long hair was so heavy! XD
