Hey everyone!

Just wanted to let you guys know that I've done a quick re-organization of my gallery, which was a mess, and is now only slightly less messy, but kinda better than it was, I think.

Now, the biggest change, and the thing that may raise the question, "where's all the pony stuff gone?!". Be assured, I have not deleted any of the old pony stuff. I would never just delete all that stuff. Personally, I don't like it when others delete their old artwork either. That stuff is an artist's history. Love it or hate it, it shows where they began, and how much they've grown over their time as an artist.

So, if you want to find all the old pony stuff, you can find it in the folder labelled "All The Pony". All the random pony stuff, and the random pony galleries such as the Nightmare Night stuff, Poniepop, etc, those are all in there too. Pretty much any pony galleries that didn't have sub-folders are in there.

So, now there are much less random folders in the sidebar, which is much shorter, and hopefully easier to navigate. At some point, I might make some new gallery folder icons, so that it looks more appealing.


The main reason I did this big re-organization thing, aside from making things more organized, is because lately, I've felt my gallery was rather misleading.

I mean, the first thing you would see when going there was a bunch of pony stuff, which would most likely lead people new to my page to believe that my focus was still on pony related content, which is not the case.

There might still be some more organization stuff to be done later. But i think it's good enough for now.
Hey everyone!

So, a little while ago, I started a Danganronpa OC, that I never got around to finishing, and I recently started working on her again. And Ii just wanted to get an opinion from you guys, on which hairstyle you think looks better, as I am kinda split between the two.

She is supposed to the Ultimate School Girl / Ultimate Magical Girl. So, I wanted to go with a sort of Sailor Moon reference hairstyle, hence the hair ball things.

These last two days have had me a little more stressed and worried than usual, due to something that I don't really want to go into detail about. I know that kinda makes it sound like it's some huge deal or something, and in a way, it kinda is a big deal, but it's also not. It's hard for me to really say, because I get stressed and worried about even the littlest things. I'm just a big worrywart, especially when it comes to dealing with people. Because I'm also not good at dealing with people too. And confronting someone is like, terrifying...


But, to try and put those things aside, and just take my mind off things, I started working on a very short comic with my cat-girl Emmie. It's nothing special. It's just two panels and then a little extra bit of dialogue. It's small, but it's something. And even though I started working on the comic to help take my mind off the stress, the comic itself has been stressful, and it also has me nervous too, but it's a good kinda stress and nervousness.

Even though I've only just started with Estelle's comics, and now also Emmie's, I'm having a lot of fun with them. And they really mean a lot to me. Because I kinda feel like I have a purpose with them. And not just them, but all the art I make. Before I started making my art, I had no real goal, or ambition, or any future plans. I just went along with whatever I felt was expected of me.

But now I feel like have a goal. I have something that I want to do. I want to make my art, and make my comics, and share the stories of my characters with everyone. I want to make a series of comics, and get them published, to share them with even more people. I know that goal is still a long way off, and I've still got a lot to learn, and it won't be easy. And I know that there are people far more talented than I am, who are also still trying to reach similar goals, but I'm still going to try.

But as I said before, I've only just started the comics. But I'm super excited to make more. I really, really, really want to make more, and I want to share the stories with you all. And I just want to thank all you as well. Because it's thanks to all you, and your support, that I'm even here, making this art. It's thanks to all of you that I've had the strength to get this far, and the strength to keep on going further. It's thanks to all of you, that I feel like I have a purpose. So again, to all of you, thank you so much.


And sorry for this kinda random ranty sorta thing. Just feeling a little emotional tonight, and wanted to just write my thoughts out, instead of bottling this stuff up, like I usually do.
Hey everyone!

So, I just wanted to talk a bit about the polls I did, regarding the chibi characters, because I was actually pretty surprised by what I saw.

If you didn't see polls, I asked, which characters you guys want to see chibis of next. I'm planning to do heaps of characters, including all the ones listed in the polls, but I wanted to know which ones, you guys wanted to see more. These are the results.

Chibi Polls by Zacatron94



The winners of the first poll, were no surprise. I was a little sad to see Jill didn't get any votes for quite a while. But for the most of it, the first poll went kind of how I expected it. Though I expected Chito and Yuuri to get more votes...

The second poll however, the results were a lot more surprising. Firstly, Leaf winning. I did not see that happening. I expected her to be more around the middle there, so I was really surprised to see her at the top.

Ochako, Akko, and Diana were no surprise. Fiona and Asuka were also a big surprise. Fiona, I thought would be lower, and Asuka would be much higher, simply because, I didn't think Zoids: Chaotic Century was that popular, and Evangelion is like, who hasn't heard of Evangelion?

And Cocona and Papika at the bottom. That was actually a big disappointment. I thought they'd be low, but not at the very bottom. I absolutely love Flip Flappers. It's such an amazing anime, a little confusing at times, but things are cleared up later on. Though I can kinda understand why they didn't get much votes here, because I don't remember many people talking it.


But anyway, these polls are actually really fun to do. I have heaps of other characters I want to do as well, so I've been thinking of just doing more of these.

I don't really talk to anyone about the anime I've watched/watching, so I feel like these are sorta like my way of just, being able to say "Hey, I've watched this." and I can give my thoughts on if I liked the show or not.
Hey everyone!

It's been over a month since the last journal, which wasn't really much of anything, so I figured it might be time to do a journal updating what is going on. I was gonna make a journal in early January, explaining plans I have regarding the art and stuff I want to do. But, I never wrote the journal, because January for the most part was just, not particularly good. Pretty shitty start of the year. Could have been worse, but it was still shit.

Before I get to the plans, I just wanna apologize that I haven't gotten around to doing all the commissions that I have to do. As I said, January's kinda been shitty, and with all these heat waves we've been getting, I just had zero motivation to do them. I've also been working on something big, which relates back to the things I have planned. I will return to working on commissions soon and I thank you for being super patient with me!


Okay, so, there are 2 things I wanna focus on this year as like the goals for the year. I don't usually set goals Like this, because I don't like making plans, and then having them backfire, or something comes up and ruins them, but I determined for these things.


First plan, which isn't that big of a thing, and something that I just want to do as like a, side thing to everything else, is making more of the anime chibis. Something I've thought about as a fun idea is like, making at least one character from every anime I've watched/liked. This is not going to be something that will be a major focus or anything, nor is it something I ever plan on seeing all the way through. I mean, I've currently completed 111 anime series. That's a lot of characters to make, plus I'm not just making just anime characters, but also video game characters too.

So, in the future there will probably be more polls, regarding which characters I'm thinking of doing chibis of, to get a sense of which characters I should do, and which I shouldn't. However, that doesn't mean a character scoring low on the polls, won't get a chibi. Like, on the current poll Chito and Yuuri are pretty low, but I really, really want to do chibis of them, so they could be done before the ones that are higher up. But all the ones on that poll, I really want to do...


Second plan, which is the super big one, which I can't remember if I have discussed or not, in a previous journal. This plan is Estelle Comics. I want to make heaps of comics about Estelle, and the students at her school, and hopefully, start a proper manga series with them!

The current comics I have planned are sorta just random little "slice of life" sorta things. They don't have an over arching story or anything. They're mostly just like, world/character building. I want to figure out the characters, and the world before I get into the nitty-gritty of trying to make the story, and these comics will be a big help for that. They'll give me a chance to test out some ideas, and to see what characteristics work, and what needs changing, etc.

I currently have 10 short comic plans written out. 2 of which I have started actually making stuff for, though I mainly focusing on one of them at the moment. The one I am focusing on I have called "Cookies", because I couldn't think of a better name, and the comic pretty much is about cookies. There are 4 pages in this comic, 2 of which are done and are available on my patreon. The other 2 pages have been my focus lately. It's slow progress, but I am having lots of fun with it, and am trying to get it done as soon as I can, so I can share it with all of you.

Another thing I've been working on is all the characters that I would like to appear throughout these comics. Currently, I have 16 characters. Some of them being Estelle's classmates. Others are members of some of the school clubs, that Estelle would likely visit from time to time, such as the Cooking Club, and the Occult Club, since these are the clubs her friends are a part of. Personally, I'm really excited for the characters in the Cooking Club, because I have so many ideas for them.

Speaking of which, even though Estelle is the main story character of this world, not all the of the comic I have planned will actually feature her. A lot of the comics I want to do, mainly focus on the students in the Cooking Club, just because I'm having a lot of fun with them. I think they'll be a very interest group of characters. Along with another character, that will have frequent runs ins with all of the students at the school, stirring heaps of shit up. The Student Council President. I only started coming up with ideas for her recently, but I already know she's gonna be a fun character to play around with.


So, yeah. I think that about covers that. Super excited to work on this stuff, and to be able to work on building my own world, and characters.

Thanks for reading!
Just want to wish a happy Day Day to everyone!

I was trying to think of some Day related image to celebrate Day, but I didn't like any of the Day ideas that I got. Maybe I'll make something Day related later...

Anyway, whatever Day you Day, I hope you Day it Daily!
Hey everyone.

Just thought I'd give a heads up on the goings on and stuff, just in case like, I disappear for a while or something.

First of all, I wanna give a huge thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. It really meant a lot to me seeing those messages.


So, the reasons I might just disappear for a bit.

First one being, I now have a heap of commissions to do, which is great, because I need commissions to survive. They is how I make the money to pay for shit. But a few of these just aren't going to be uploaded here, as per the request of some of those people that wanted 'em.

Another reason, is Estelle. I wanna do more with her, progressively on a bigger scale. I to expand on her world, flesh it out more, come up with settings, backgrounds, flesh out the characters and stuff. But mostly, I want to move away from just doing single images, with a story linked in the description. I want to make comics showing the story instead. Not like, a huge full story comic, but more like an anthology of random parts of Estelle's life, mixed in with story driven events and stuff. So, of course, this stuff takes a lot longer to do, and I need to dedicate the time to doing that. But first, I gotta get those commissions out of the way, so I can buy the time to do that.


And the last reason, which is something I kinda don't really like talking about, but at this point is affecting my productivity, is just my mental state right now.

Honestly, I'm just not sure where I am with it. I can't really say I'm unhappy, but I also can't really say I'm happy either. Like, just the last or week or so, I've been consistently bouncing between the two states, where sometimes I feel fine,and then as time goes on, I just lose interest in everything, and kinda just want to sit in a corner and block out the world.

So, this has made it hard to work on stuff, because some days, I just have no motivation, and just end up spending the day killing time with Youtube videos, and other random shit.

It also doesn't help that Summer has started and the heat has already been hell, and I've been sick because of it, with some nasty headaches, and nausea, because I just can't deal with the heat very well. (Though this did give me an idea for a thing with Estelle, so there is a bright side in that)

But yeah, that stuff's just been going on lately. Usually my off days just come and go ever once in a while, but lately they've just been more persistent in staying around.

But don't worry about me though! I'll be fine! I'll still be here, making the arts, and trying my best to work hard and bring you guys more stuff!

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since I've just done a general update of what's been happening lately.

I'm sure some of you have been wondering, why the sudden DnD inspired art, and tweets. Well, it's because I've recently gotten into it myself.

I haven't actually played it, since I'm an anti-social person who isn't going to just go to random people and say, "Hey dude, you wanna throw down some dungeons, and/or dragons?!"

But I have been watching a bunch of different campaigns, and enjoying the hell out of them.

I've also been going on wikis and shit, and doing research and stuff, because I want to know more, and I generally find doing that sort of research fun. I like learning stuff like this, and learning the mechanics of it. Though I will admit, there are parts that I kinda just gloss over, because it gets too boring, or it's just a wall of text, and it's like, I don't want to spend all day reading shit I don't need to know at this current time.

But yeah, so I've kinda just been digging myself into this stuff.

Today, I thought it'd be fun to try and figure out how Estelle would fit into the world of DnD. So, I figure out her stats and all that, to try and make her as much as I can, like she currently is, which isn't really that hard.

As a quick summary:

She's a Rouge, with a Criminal background. Her alignment is Neutral Evil, since she has no issue with killing anyone, even her "allies". However, she only does so, if she benefits from it. She isn't going to burn down an entire village of people, if it doesn't benefit her in some way. Nor is she going to just murder her entire party for no reason. You gotta pay up for that, but even so, she may see it more beneficial to keep her party alive.


On top of this, I figured out her stats, and shit, to the best of my abilities. I may have made a few mistakes here and there, but I did the calculations with the assistance of an online character sheet generator, so I think it should be accurate. Turns out, Estelle might be a bit squishy in combat, but she is a master at lying to people... She could probably lie her way into making her enemies fight for her instead...

All those stats and things, I'll most likely share the nitty gritty of, at another time, as I do plan on designing how Estelle would look in her Rouge attire. So all that info will probably be linked in the description of that.

Something I do want to share though is a summary I made of Estelle's backstory, in that world. Being in that world, none of the events in it, are canon to what I have planned for Estelle's real story, but they are closely linked. Also, the story isn't canon to any set world of DnD, and is meant to be sorta of a homebrew kinda thing.

Anyway, if you want to read it, here it is:  Estelle's background, if she were in DnDIn the grand city of Laurentius.
At a very young age (approximate 4-5) Estelle was witness to the brutal murder of her mother (Alexys) and father (Rowan), at the hands of a hooded figure, whom had broken into their home, and then fled into the darkness of night, leaving the young girl orphaned, and saturated in blood.
Since then, Estelle has been “broken” in a sense. In order to protect the girl from the suffering, and pain, it closed off those emotions, and all others, leaving her an empty vessel. She lost the ability the feel sadness, but also joy and happiness.
She was taken to an orphanage where she was subject to mistreatment by the more unfriendly staff. Which subsequently led to one of the staff members, a rather nasty old woman named Elfreda, losing an eye.
 
Due to this, the state of which she was brought in, and her general unfriendly and distant attitude, the other kids avoided Estelle, fearing her, believing she was a monster, and that she might have been t


It is kinda rough, as I only spent the last hour and a half on it. But, I hope you do enjoy it, if you do choose to read it.

I also revealed Senpai's real name in the story, because I finally decided on what her name is. For almost a year now, I've only been calling her Senpai, in my notes and stuff, because I could not decide on a name for her.

Honestly, despite her alignment, I feel like if I were to manage to join an actual session of DnD, I would love to play as Estelle, and I think she would be a lot of fun to play around with.



And aside from all that DnD stuff, I do have other things in the works.

I am working on commissions, which are still open, if anyone wants something done.


I have pointy pony comic in the works, that I think will be a lot of fun. It was going to be something I was going to do for Halloween, but it got too big, and I ran out of time. I mean, I spent a whole day working on 1 background, that appears for 1 panel, and that ain't even done. The scope of the comic is also rather large, spanning over multiple parts, following multiple groups of characters. Essentially, it's the Walking Dead, with pointy ponies. But hopefully it will fair better than I hear the more current seasons have been received. I can't judge them myself, 'cause I stopped watching after season 4, I think.


Also, I have been working on more Veronica fusions. Mainly a Braixen, and a Houndoom fusion for her. I also wanted to do the Houndoom fusion as a Halloween thing, by having Vernoica look like a demon, but I also ran out of time for that. Also, I've just been really disappointed with the results I'm getting for these two fusions. I'm not satisfied with what I've made, and want to scrap what I've done, and want to start over from scratch.


The last few days, I've also been taking some longer breaks between some of the images I've been working on. As, what I wrote in the description of the last image I uploaded, was somewhat true. My hand, was really, really sore after working on that image. My whole arm hurt badly, and I even felt the effects the day after, so I've just been trying to take better care of that, since I don't want to risk any permanent damage.


So, that's a summary of what's been going on lately.

Thank you all for reading!
