So i've heard that Twitter is the latest and coolest and best place to be, so i've made one.

You can find it here; twitter.com/XaelDesign

Give me a follow if you're into that kind of thing, i'll be trying to post WIPS, updates and completed projects over there, along with an occasional dose of my own thoughts.

Otherwise i'm trying to get back into the swing of things, I always say this, but it helps to write it down at least...

Thanks for reading & following if you do!

Hey there,

Sorry that I've been pretty inactive recently, a new job and lack of...motivation has led me here.

First of all i'd like to thank all my new watchers, and all of the old ones for wanting to see more.
Alas, those of you who watched me for Pony wallpapers, my apologies. I've lost pretty much all interest in the show, and thus the chances of making another Pony wallpaper is very low.
HOWEVER. I'm still up for making them if requested, just don't expect to see any appear of my own accord. 

But enough sad, WoW: Legion is out! And i'm having a blast playing, and that leads me nicely into the next bit.

I have a new project that i'm working on, having been inspired by WoW again, specialization designs / wallpapers! You know the drill. 
Requests and filler stuff (like Overwatch) will still be done when the mood takes me. 

Anyway I wanted to ask if anyone wanted to see a specific spec first?
Drop a comment if you wanted to see... say Survival Hunter or Shadow Priest, and i'll do my best to comply.

You'll see the first of the new spec walldoops soon.

Thanks for sticking around <3

Seems like the new PROJECT: skins will be getting a splash each, seems like perfect candidates for a wallpaper each.
They will look somewhat similar to;
 Project: Yasuo V2 by Xael-Design
Looks out for those when the skins are released!

So...these milestones... I guess everyone has to do them every now and then.

Watchers! <3 you guys, aside from myself wanting to make stuff, you guys want to see it, and for that I love you ^^

5k page views is a pretty big deal right? right? It is a great number, and I thank you all for at least having a gander at my work.

100+ Deviations...well if there is one thing I have to say on this subject its that I love to see how much I've improved which is always great and being able to see what I did so little time ago is pretty awesome.

In the future! I've finished my year at college so I have a whole summer to work on stuff! So expect many things...hopefully :D

I hope you all have a great week!

I thought I should update you on whats going on at the moment:

I just don't know what to this week, having some kind of block.... maybe its because of the half term...

Anyway, I've been working on some cool stuff that I want to share with you guys; as well as doing a ton of these requests.

I have some stuff that I will hopefully get to work on soon™.

- Battle Pony Wallpapers
- Series 2 continues!
- Custom Champion wallpapers like dwindlekin.deviantart.com/art/…
- Robot Pony Wallpapers

The last thing I have to say is thanks to all of the people who's vectors I use and the brushes that I use, they are awesome!

Thanks to :iconaleskias: for the awesome picture of my Hunter in WoW that can be found here!

Alright,

I'm going to be making these Series 2 LoL wallpapers and I hope to do at least 2 a week but hopefully more!

Fear not pony fans, I will be working on something that isn't just Twilight soon™!

Until then,

Enjoy!

EDIT: Deleting some stuff from here as well, hope no one minds :>
I am making stuff again!

I don't really know what to put here, but something will go below.

Below.

Yes.
And that is the last of the pony papers, but when I think of something new, creations will come!

- Enjoy!
Trying new styles and practising techniques as well, I've had these pony wallpapers hanging around in my Sta.sh for some time, and now i'll be posting them! <3

- Enjoy!
I think I have been accepted, time to place all the art here me thinks.
