Let's see, what picture commissions have I received back from amazing artists since my last journal post? *looks in gallery* Whoops...
So the answer to that would be "quite a lot" then, it seems...
Right well, let me give some brief descriptions:
1) A suggestion/request I made to amiwakawaiidesu
a while back, that my 90s girl Holly (future astronaut) may enjoy playing a flight simulator game I used to play during my school lunch breaks at the local arcade, which was to land a series of increasingly heavy aircraft. Amiwa took this idea and turned the point of the game on its head - Holly has to rescue a crashing plane (and apparently isn't very good at it yet! xD)
2) Another more recent suggestion from Amiwa, this one made in honour of a classic (in the UK) children's gameshow called Knightmare, where one child would go on a knight's quest through a perilous dungeon to prove themselves worthy, guided by three close friends because they were made to wear a giant Viking helmet that effectively rendered them blind. Cue the friends being useless at giving directions.
3) A commission I made to Shieltar
of his OC Grace Harmoney, the central character in his "Birth of Equestria" web-comic (if you haven't yet, you should really check it out
). Topless on the beach and using just her wings to tease her boyfriend (and us) (and herself
4) The first in a potential new series of commissions with Miss-Alex-Aphey
, this one being Doctor Who ships with delicious desserts. One of my favourite (crack pairing) ships is "Zoe Heriot/TARDIS". I have basically no shame.
5) After a previous commission to :j8d to draw Blossom and Bubbles enjoying a relaxing evening together on the couch came out so lovely, I decided to follow it up by showing what Buttercup and Robyn get up to without any kids at home for the evening. And this was the rather sweet answer to that question.
6) More original characters, and polyamorous smooches to boot in this one!
I commissioned aerodynamicT
to draw my three teen centaurs together as a romantic triad. That's Lightdancer on the left; Windrunner in the middle; and Skybreaker on the right. Lightdancer and Skybreaker are also older brother and younger sister, for that extra little awwwwkwardness between them all. xD
7) A brand-new piece from J8d
this evening, Judy Hopps joins the Disney Stars! She's taking a break from the fast paced world of police-work in Zootropolis (with Nick dragged along for the ride) to have a working visit to her family's farm just outside Bunnyburrow.
8) Another brand-new piece this evening from J8d
, Princess Morbucks wants to have a little fun with her hubby while they have the house to themselves for the evening...
Well that's pretty much it for now.
Meanwhile, in the real world - I finished the classes for my first two ACCA courses, and took the exams for them when I had last week off work. The first one I got the result back immediately; I passed, with 65% (the pass marks are all 50%). The second one...I don't get the result until 15 July. Ugh. xD But I feel reasonably good about it - good enough to have scored at least 51%, that is.
- cartoon fan-art, as well as original characters in cartoon and anime styles up to semi-realism.
- more serious, near-/realism fan-art in digital and traditional formats, and some photographs.
- All things relating to the Royal Union of Loldova, as well as the Royal United Loldovan Forces.
