What the title says. I have a new account :icon1unicorn-on-the-cob: This is where all my stuff will be posted from now on.

See everyone around!
For those who don't follow my blog, I've chosen to take a break from uploading pics here so I can draw a whole batch of sketches instead of rushing to finish a new one each week. I don't like feeling rushed. So I've been working on a lot of new stuff, including some gift art, a contest entry for After-Ever-After, and more gender-swapped Rovers that a few people have asked about. When it comes to art, I draw what I feel like, so that explains why I can take so long with completing projects (I've been trying to be more punctual when it comes to things like commissions, gift art, or trades). I actually have a number of sketches I've started on but have yet to finish collected in a folder.

One of the three requests/suggestions I was pleased to get was for Antoine to actually square off in the ring against assorted opponents from the Sonic-verse as a continuation of sorts of the "Antoine the Savateur" sketches I did. Sonic's name came up twice as a contender, so he's up first. I'm going to actually watch some savate matches just to get a better sense of what the style about, but have begun playing around with ideas for poses for the sketch.

Speaking of requests, I actually don't mind taking them, but here's the thing -- if I'm taking time-out of my busy schedule to draw something for you for free, it needs to be something I'm either actually interested in or think is a really cool idea. Look through my gallery. You may begin to pick up on some common themes there. I'm not going to draw your OFC and, I dunno, Rapunzel getting cozy with each other for free simply because it's not something that interests me. It's nothing personal against you, so don't take it as such.

Stuff I can't or won't draw:

- Robots. It's not that I don't want to, it's because I don't know how. Sure wish I did though!
- Planes, vehicles, etc. Again, don't know how to.
- Gore. I do plan on practicing further with action and fight scenes, but I'm not going to draw your character with their eyeball hanging out the socket or something.
- Fetish art.
- Pornz.
- Hate art. NO.
- SEGA-styled characters. I will say I am planning on doing three characters in this style, all fan characters, and two of these will be straight-up jokes/satire. Otherwise, there are tons upon tons of other people here and elsewhere online who love the style and will probably be glad to draw it for you.

This also applies to art traders and commissions. And I'm am open for either. Just ask! I'll put up info for prices soon. I will say that if you have a request that I'm not feeling, I'll tell you that I'd be wiling to do it as a commission instead. I also have the right to turn down a commission/request/trade.
I have a blog on Tumblr now: defenderofthedowntroddenblog.t… It's mostly meant to serve as Q&A blog, so feel free to ask my about a story (or stories) that I'm currently working on or upcoming stuff.
Since :iconcakelesspixels: has been helping me fine-tune my take on Antoine's background and family members, I went in and did a bit of editing in the first chapter to reflect this. Also made a few other minor changes, namely calling the castle the royal family used to live in a palace instead, since I like the look of their palace in Sonic SatAM.
I'm always interested in getting my fics out there on different sites. I have three crossovers with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic in mind, and I've toyed around with posting them to FimFiction once they're written. But the thing is, the other things I'm  crossing FiM over with are two '90s cartoons that aren't particularly popular, and I've noticed a number pony of fans can be... "funny" when it comes to things that aren't new. Basically, what I'd like to know is this: am I going to get people there being nasty to me purely because they hate Road Rovers or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie (this version) or whatever? Or do you guys believe they'd be willing to be fair and reasonable?
I appreciate the shout-outs, but it's not necessary to credit me as adopting Huntress or ask my permission to use her in something. The thing is, she's not my fan character, and she was never officially given to me by Greywolf Lupous. Greywolf had been long gone back when I got involved with the fandom, so I've never even spoken with her before. Anyone can use her, just as long as you credit Greywolf (and, y'know, don't kill her off or do anything else extreme).
Because. Snatched from :iconkhwhitelion:

Give me a character, and I'll give you 10+ headcanons. They can either be canon characters (from a fandom I actually follow), my OFCs, or one of my AU versions of a character.
I know I said before that I was going to post some of my stories here, but based on what I've heard from several people about how difficult posting longer works on here has become, I'm only going to be posting one-shots and maybe short stories here. The problem is that I don't have any one-shots currently written that I think would appeal to people. Still, I might post two that I've done here sometime soon.

If you would like to see my longer works, then go to: www.fanfiction.net/u/1201141/O…
I've really been interested in getting some commissions dome of my characters and other things, including my Sonic The Hedgehog OFC Stormblaze the unicorn. Which brings me to the point of this post: does anyone know of any artists who are pretty nice, easygoing people who can draw relatively well (especially anthro equines) and charge reasonable prices for commissions?
I feel bad having people watch my account when I haven't uploaded anything here in ages. So I've decided to try posting a fan-fiction here once I've completed it and see how that goes. If all goes well, then I'll upload others.
Nice title, huh? Anyways, I felt I owed some an explanation for why I haven't posted any art in a long time and why my activity here has decreased. First of all, I've really had no desire to draw anything for several months now. Why, I have no idea. Every time I sit down and start drawing something, I end up completely loosing interest halfway through.  

Secondly, I hate this site. I tried to stick it out for my friends who are also members here and a couple of people who like the junk I post, but I can't anymore. Mostly, I'm tired of DA's other users: their stupid comments, the egomaniacal artists, the idiots who will blindly defend people who make it plainly obvious that they're horrible/or crazy individuals. I'm tired of trying to search for well-done, interesting art and finding a ton of creepy fetish stuff and other assorted fail instead. Case in point, there's this Road Rovers fan club that wanted to add my fan art to their gallery. I looked through said gallery, and found pictures of characters being inflated like balloons and stuff. I turned the request down -- I don't want my art associated with peoples' crazy spank material.

I'll still stick around, but only to comment on a few things and fave art I actually do like. When and if I ever do start drawing again, I'll probably post much of it at some other art site.
  • Watching: Investigation Discovery
I'd love to be able to get the hang of more dynamic poses and action poses in my art, and wondered if anyone out there knows of any websites that have free images that people can use for references, or have any helpful tips or anything like that?

A few pple already know about this, but for those who don't, I thought I'd advertise here. With the help of :iconsirauron99: and :iconshaun:, I've somehow managed to set up a RP forum. It's a literate, advanced RP (so it involves stuff like good grammar and spelling), the plot of which is a mass crossover between just about any animated medium you can think of (anime, Disney, etc.), tho we don't allow certain ones. If you're interested, then stop on by to see us at worldofanimasia.ipbfree.com/in… :)
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Both

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
I think LTC had the best answer to this one, so I’ll use his (hope you don‘t mind, LTC): Of course, he’s magic. He then gives them to my parents to put under the tree. We wrapped some stuff to make his job easier.

That old Budweiser commercial where the Clydesdales are pulling that cart through the falling snow while a choir harmonizes in the background. I look out for that commercial ever year.

Giving to the less fortunate

I finally went and made my own forum (yes, horrifying thought, I know) after getting sick and tired of all the constant crap that happens at many of them. www.fanfiction.net/forum/Oasis…

Post or else.
