As promised since my latest journal entry, Lyra Heartstrings. Another experimental piece of mine as I actually chopped up the picture, added a background layer of design paper, and used a gold paint pen; and that doesn't include the Photoshop edits. Since I played around with various art styles on the Princess'ses... Princesses'... Princessi? Someone tell me what the grammatically accurate word for (multiple possessive princess) in the comments. Problem was, Lyra has no real personality in the fan-made works outside of an obsession with human. Tell me whats the reverse of a Furry? 

If you voted for another character in the pole, have no fear, because I will definitely put up another pole for the next project come next year. 

So tell me what you think in the comments and the critique section. Break it down as you please, and show me my flaws while schooling me on the artistic repercussions of what I put forth. I know full well that this one may offend some people on a certain level, but keep in mind that I have a lengthy explanation of my reasoning behind my latest projects. I will simply continue to work on said portfolio with the help of anyone who can grant me the support of constructive criticism. 

Tools used: Copic Multiliner and Copic Sketch Markers on Bristol Board, with Prismacolor Gold Paint Pen and gold/turquoise design paper. Photoshop edits post scan. 

*After being asked to show it, I decided to post the unphotoshoped version: muffyn-man.deviantart.com/art/…  
Let me know if you can spot the changes I made.

*Even bigger news everyone! Turns out this was featured on CAC Ep.80 : www.youtube.com/watch?v=JglU_-…
Give them a watch as I think they are the only podcast in the community to review and cover fanart and the artists behind them. Correct me if I'm wrong because I would love to see more groups doing podcasts and discussions of Pony Art since it's such a huge aspect of the fandom. If you do find another podcast that talks about mlp fan art let me know.

Thanks, though don't expect too many mlp work from me for a little bit outside of commissions for now. Life got busy and I got busy. That being said expect a few of those really soon.

Beautiful !!! May I use this for a cover of Anthropology? Please :)

What do you mean a cover of anthropology? Are you referring to a textbook or a video?

If you are using it for a presentation or a video then by all means. So long as you apply Fair Use Law to it, I'm fine.

DO YOU MAKE T-SHIRTS?

Do you think I should?
I don't do vector art and that seems to be what sells in that market. I was planning on turning some of my work into playmats and buttons in the future, and some of my work can be purchased as posters at Bronyhouse.
