So!  Hello my dudes, I haven't posted in a while, and why is that?  WELL, currently I'm working on a comic!  It'll be a long-form, chapter driven, story and character based comic, titled "Under the Viridian Sea".  It's about mermaids!  More specifically, it's about a hidden society of merfolk living just off the Northwestern US coast, sequestered away in the kelp forests.  Azura, the newly christened village healer and leader, must decide how to proceed forward with her people, as the 'humans' encroach more and more on their land, hiding becomes less and less of a viable option, and respect amongst her peers is running thin.

I would post updates, BUT the reason why I can't is because I've decided to go traditional in the production process!  Believe it or not, I'm not actually super good with traditional techniques as opposed to digital, and I really wanted the backgrounds of the ocean to be in watercolor (of which I have probably the least experience).  SO, I thought this would be a great learning and improving experience for me, and boy there's a LOT to improve on.  I'm gonna aim to have something to show by the time Mer-May rolls around.

Also, I'm working on a couple animations for some MLP Multiple Animator Projects, which will be releasing sometime in the summer.  Again, not something that I can really share with you guys, not until it's finished at least!

Anyways, so that's what's been up with me.  What's been up with you?


This is a reference to this comic I drew a few years ago, which in and of itself is a reference to this moment from the Season 4 Finale Bronies React.  That's right baby, we're going 4 levels deep on this one!

It is now my headcanon that Twilight just uses the Hasbro Legal Dpt. as her personal hit-squad bogeymen on anyone she doesn't like.

More MLP comics and stuff!

When you drew Fluttershy for me on the last day of Everfree, I knew I really liked your style.  What I didn't know, was that you were also really good at drawing humanoids, too!  I'm really glad I ran into you yesterday, and I look forward to what you put out next!~
