This is a bit of an odd one. :iconnovathyme: specifically requested that the adopt be passed on my Ascension AU versions of each character. :D So on top of already being a far cry from canon designs, this ended up not really looking like a cross between the original characters. Oh well. 

Based on these headcanons:

That is, without a doubt, my most common typo for the mane six. The way I was taught to spell that type of word has me doing it automatically.

I feel that, I have Dyslexia so such Things happen more than often, so I just found it funny, but in a positive-meaning way :D

I see the relationship between Fluttershy and rarity in this one!!! The butterfly wings just scream Flutterfly, and the fur tone is such a nice blend of the white and yellow, giving it more of an off pale yellow which is so beautiful. and the eyes look a lot like rarity. The very proud, proper look to glasswing. Its breathtaking <3

I have to say this— all of your designs are gorgeous, whether they’re complex like this or less complex! The detail you put into all of them is STUNNING

Thanks. I'm constantly wrestling with how I want my style to look, and how far I want to go with detail. It all sort of works out, but still.

I really should mention that next time. It wasn't originally part of the plan, but a number of people Brough it up, so I've been doing it a lot.

Why is everything you draw so damn PRETTY

Eh, thanks. I've kinda been having a problem with the varying level of detail in these adopts. Some of them have turned out really creative and detailed, while some of them are just meh. But they all cost the same. So I feel like I'm ether undercharging for the better designs, or cheating someone out of their money and giving them something substandard. If I went in expecting a detailed design, and got one of the other ones, I think I'd be mad, honestly. But some of the characters/concepts that customers ask for are just inherently less detailed. A few of them would look crowded if I tried to jam more in.

You could always add a disclaimer that the amount of detail may vary. You could also have two tiers for adopts. One for simpler design requests, and one for more complex requests.

Honestly, I've been thinking about charging an extra fee for feathered wings. I feel kinda bad, but they are by far the most work out of anything I do. My other option is cutting back on the detail in them, which bugs me.

I'm sure your clients would understand. <3

Hey, just want to let you know - don't be so harsh to yourself.

I don't think any of your designs you did are "meh" - just because all of them aren't fancy alicorns with beautiful manes and wings doesn't mean they aren't of same quality. Even if you draw "just" a simple earth-pony, compared to most of the MLP-themed grid adopts on Deviantart, your designs are very detailed and you had to come a long way of learning anatomy to draw like this. And as you see, people ARE happy with your designs and love to buy more of them :) Godness, that TwiLuna kiddo you did for me? Looks fantastic!

You're amazing artist, and you shouldn't lower yourself. Your designs aren't anything to feel bad for.

It's... partially more of a personal guilt over not doing my best on some designs. Even the simpler ones. I could put more thought and effort into a lot of them. I just get lazy sometimes.

Pidffee's avatar

That's pretty understandable...

I don't mean it badly, but maybe it would help to get a break on the designs? You're drawing them in crazy short time, you deserve some little break between them.

The best way for me to stay motivated to to keep rolling. If I take breaks, I start procrastinating, and then art block sets in and I don't want to draw anything. I may try doing other stuff in-between them though. I need to draw something, but maybe doing more personal stuff would help.

That's not a bad idea :) Putting all your drawing-time into designs can really drain you out of inspiration/ motivation, so returning to stuff you love to draw might help you to relax your mind little bit, yet keeping you in your routine
