Thank you guys for the birthday wishes, I apologize that I can't really go through and reply to every single one. In the last year or so I've really taken a liking to Twitter and that's where you'll find me more often than not! I'll still use DA as an archive but beyond that I'm gone. I disabled most comments because I don't have time to do DeviantArt's job in regards to spam. :ohnoes: Thanks again, guys. You're awesome. :dummy:
@YoHomeboyNC is where the party's at.

Yo, check this out: a bud's looking to spin up a new RPG. Pretty cool stuff in the pipe and the project could use a hand if you're up to it!

Yooo, 
Everfree Northwest is going down in like five days so I thought I’d try and whip up a handy dandy guide for you guys should you brave the vendor hall.

Now, I’ve never been up to the region of See-At-El before, but I’m working off the legends and accounts of those who’ve survived such levels of hype before. If you find yourself getting all turned around and succumbing to the sheer awesomeness of that room, seek out Table 47. I shall give you a hearty “Wassup!” and a most-invigorating high-five. You’ll be well-equipped to continue your journey!

I’m not sure I’ve ever been more stoked for a con than I am now. For real, this one’s going to be nuts. I’ll hopefully see you there! Thanks for being awesome and good luck. We’re all counting on you. o7

It really means a lot, thanks so much. Outside of New England losing it was pretty awesome. I hope you guys are doing well yourselves!

This is so neato, agh. Just never gets old, you know? The feeling of having provided the basis for a sculpture or really any creative endeavor is just so awesome. I mean, just look at these!

Makes all the hours spent drawing worth it - knowing that there was some sort of impact made, however small. Thanks so much, you guys. It really means the world that you would choose to watch, let alone pull inspiration from my stuff. I see little influences in a lot of drawings and it's just the best feeling. 19K watchers completely floors me and I can't thank you all enough for the support and for being part of this terrific community as a whole. I've jumped into the workforce now that college is all wrapped up and with this New Year a new season of life also dawns. I hope you guys like what comes down the pipe next! Happy New Year and I'll catch you on the flip side. :happybounce:

I'll be holding down #516, right next door to Ardail, the Tsi-man and Lil' Moon Crafts.:dummy: Later Saturday evening at 10PM I'm gonna be taking part in the Sketch from a hat panel, too!

It's gonna be hype, man.

Going through to tomorrow evening rather than tonight. I’m tired but back home and ready for action! 5/24/2017 at 11:59PM Arizona Time is when we’ll call it.

Utilizing this super cool auction system, we're gonna help Viw and kick some serious cancer ass for comics artist Jenn Blake at the same time. You need deets? We got those:

www.gofundme.com/helpviw

Don't mind the goal. It was weak. Know what's not weak? These pony commission slots. Minimal background is in effect, but the whole nine yards on a SFW character or two is up for grabs. We're starting at a healthy 60$ and running at $20 increments from there.

Signal boosts are most appreciated as well.

I will do my absolute best to keep up here, but I hope I have a hard time doing so.

I can't be there for the monster-stream going down tomorrow on Picarto, but I surely can pretend. So, here we go. It's been a very long time, but two comms are going live.

Right here.

Right now.

Right on.
Aaaaahahahaha it's here! :typerhappy: OK, so :iconshuxer59: has been busting out sculptures for a little while now and he based a number of them on my own drawings. Like - GAH! It's so humbling to at all inspire others' artistic pursuits. :') It's the number one thing that I love to hear/see the most! So every time this happens I'm more and more thinking to myself I got to commission this guy, right?

So I did.
She Ditched You?! by NCMares 

And she's perfect. :woohoo: He has a much better camera and setup than I do, but I did my best to get some decent shots. ^^; I'll go ahead and put the rest of the pictures on tumblr so the whole journal here isn't a mile long, but Shuxer did such a terrific job and I am so stoked to finally commission him. :la: Thanks again, bud!

In other news, my final semester of university really has it in for me so I apologize for not being terribly active. :ohnoes: I really want to graduate, haha! Thank you guys so very much for all the support and your comments. You guys are the best, and I hope to start getting some more stuff out the door soon. :) Have a good one and I hope to see some you guys at Bronycon!

Thank you guys very much for the birthday wishes! Man, it's so hard to believe 4 years have already gone by. Seems just like yesterday I was just figuring out what all the hullabaloo surrounding pony was all about. Thank you all for sticking around and I hope that I can continue to warrant your time and watches. ^^

Hey hey, in just one short week Pacific Pony Con in beautiful San Diego is totally going down over the weekend of January 6-8! :D 

I hope to see a few of you guys there - I’d love to shake your hand and thank you for being a total G. :) I’ll be holding down table number 33 right next to some ring-dong-diddly-onkously awesome neighbors! You better believe that @johansrobot, MyLittleTies and CoinsofHarmony are right next door!

 Swing on by - say waddup! Stay awhile! Cop some baller prints, collector coins and fresh, fly threads! What better way to start 2017 than in style, amirite? Pacific Pony Con hype - waddup!

I always say that tomorrow doesn’t start ‘til I wake up, but it’s the stroke of midnight here and I just want to say thank you. Drawing and occasionally writing for this incredible fandom has been one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life and while I’m not gonna get all mushy or nothing I still want to let you know how much all this means to me. Thank you guys for having me, and I hope that I can continue to warrant your time. ^^

Deviantart has been spazzing out really bad lately on my computer, so I really apologize that I haven't been able to reply to notes and comments in a timely manner. :[ Like, I'll type the whole thing up, go to submit and suddenly I get this page saying that deviantart is suddenly 'forbidden.' I think that I will have better luck with the app, but desktop is much preferred, you know? I apologize and am on it, guys!

Oh man, this is pretty dope. The good ol' boys down at MLPForums are hosting a Q&A session today, Oct. 30 at 8PM EST and invited me to be their guest! Jontron FBI Scream Emoticon  

If you got a juicy question or just want to swing by and chill, come on down and tune in! This is my first experience with this sort of shtick but I'll power through that nervousness and do my best to answer whatever might get thrown down the thread. Details are right over here, if anyone's interested. :)

Due to me being called away last night, we ended up bumping the thing ahead by 24 hours. ^^; It's going down tonight the 30th at the same time!

I miss it and everyone there so much right now. :’) Thank you guys for stopping by the table and attending the Artist Panel. I really hope it gets uploaded to YouTube - the senpais were dishing out some really great advice and information! That whole thing was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had, and if you all can make next year’s I highly recommend going! Hopefully they accept me again, but we’ll see. ^^ Thanks for all the support and watching, ladies and gents. I thought Bronycon would always be a distant dream but it’s been an absolute blast being able to draw for you all and to be apart of this incredible fandom. :) I’ll be seeing you - take it easy! I’ll have some choice pictures and stuff ready for action in just a bit, too on the tumblr. :D

This is it, ladies and gents! Your old pal NC is gonna be vending and participating in a panel at Bronycon in just a few days. This is really going down! :dummy: Man alive - I am excited. So! Here's most everything that needs to be known...


  • The Table


I'll be holding down table 502 with my man :iconjorobro:, which can be found on this handy-dandy little map right here:
Bronycon by NCMares
Come visit us, m'kay?

I'll have all kinds of prints ready to rock, and might even take on a commission or two! We'll see how busy things get, heh. :) It'll be totally boss, so swing on by! I'd love to meet you guys and thank you for all the support you've shown over the years. I got some awesome neighbors, too! :iconberrypawnch: is up on 504 and YayaHan in 601 with :icontsitra360: and :iconequestriaplush: across the way on 503 and 402, respectively. Can somebody say wicked hype?

  • The Panel(!)


I'd totally invite you guys to the Bronycon Artist Panel going down at 8:30 Saturday evening in the Hall of the Sun but quite frankly I don't know if you can HANDLE it! I mean, I can barely handle it and I'm not even there yet! :ohnoes: Come on down if you want to see me barely contain my joy and adoration as I sit side-by-side with seven of my favorite fandom artists. :D We'll each talk about two chosen works and then open it up to a Q&A, so be there! You'll get to see the likes of
:iconassasinmonkey:, :icontsaoshin:, :iconearthsong9405:, :iconjadedjynx:, :icondvixie:, :iconsilverslinger:, :icontsitra360:
and some other guy - EnnSee or some such.

The happening status? Most definitely it's.

Bronycon, baby! Bring it! We'll knock it right out of the park, I'm telling you!

The latest timelapse is ready to roll featuring Sunset Shimmer. :) Check it right over here, if you like : [link]

And then just a quick update to those of you on Patreon. First of all - THANK YOU. Without you guys there is no way I'd have been able to do much of anything, lol. I got the first set of prints for you fellas locked and loaded - just need to drop them in the mailbox and we'll be good to go! With that said, we need to get the ones for July squared up. It'll be second verse, same as the first - just drop me a line on Patreon with your address and which print you'd like and I'll get it done no problem. That's how we'll roll from here on in - first of every month I'll send a reminder out. Nice and clean, with no fuss or me over-complicating the crap out of stuff. I also need your sketch requests if you're participating in at least that tier! Just drop me a line once in a while on here or DArt and I'll whip up a nice bit of sketchage for ya. :)

Thanks for your time, guys. Have a good one!

:bulletred: The Panel :bulletred:


Bronycon just dropped their schedule , so now's as good a time as any to let folks know that in addition to vending at table 502 I'll also have the honor of being up on stage with seven of my freakin' senpais in the Bronycon Art Panel. I'm talking Earthsong9405, Tsitra360 , AssasinMonkey, DVixie , SilverSlinger, JaDeDJynX  and TsaoShin.

Talk about humbling. It's absolutely psychotic, is what it really is. Come on down that Saturday 9th evening to the Hall of the Sun \[T]/ if you want to watch me be a total dork as I desperately try to pretend I belong up there with them. :dummy:

There's a dizzying amount of stuff going down at Bronycon, so hopefully that schedule helps you out if you haven't already given it a look. Swing on by! We'll talk about all kinds of stuff, stay up late swapping manly stories and in the morning? I'm makin' WAFFles.

I'm not all that sure what to expect out of Bronycon, so while I'm nervous beyond all reason I'm still ridiculously excited to finally meet some of you guys and the dozens of artistic inspirations vending. :) Let's knock it out of the park!
