Katya Ironstead

Heyo, it's dat boi and best commie alihorse. I'm not much of an artist myself, struggling to draw due to arthritis causing constant pain in my finger joints (thanks, life!) and being an overall killjoy. I've got this account for commissions and rare comments. If you want to watch, make sure it's primarily for the OC, not art. I won't be submitting much of the latter, until I feel confident in what I draw.


OC information/bio :…

Since you've reached this profile for some reason, you're probably a bit interested.
I'd like you to know a few things in that case.

1. Any useful feedback, positive or negative, is very appreciated. Hateful comments offer nothing of use and only prove that some people simply cannot take off their alicorn hate glasses. I've made her to show people that alicorn OCs in the MLP fandom don't all have to be terrible and can both look good and have a decent story to follow. One day, I hope she'll gain some popularity. It would only make me happier.

2. If you have concerns regarding Kat being a bit too similar to any other OCs, I have evidence of her being a thing dating back to September 2013, while the concept started before summer of that year. Just because I may be less popular than some people doesn't mean I appreciate comments saying 'Katya looks like X', while it's usually the other way around. I didn't base her design on anything other than my preferences.

3. No, she's not the embodiment of communism. Check the journals.

4. I had a sphinx pony drawn all the way back in 2014. Just so it's clear one show episode from summer 2017 wasn't my inspiration and I did it before it was cool :v

5. I turned off llama notifications. If you don't get one back after giving it to me, it's because I don't know and don't really care about them. If you want to express something, you can do it with words, not a pointless badge.

6. Being an introvert, I find it hard to reach out to people myself. That doesn't mean I wouldn't want to get to know some of you. Chatting (except for small talk, avoid using "hi, how are you?" like fire) or playing together, I love to do all that. Scroll down, if you'd like to get in contact!

Social media


^ Limited to people I've known for a bit. Used to accept invites from anyone, but that definitely did not work out ^



^ Best way to get in contact. Don't do it unless you have a reason to, I tend to regularly wipe inactive users ^



^ You can expect a rare, boring video, when my motivation allows (almost never) ^

Commissions I'm currently waiting for:

Favourite and highly recommended artists :
:icontheomegaridley: :iconxn-d: :iconclayscence: :iconmykegreywolf: :iconavastin4: :iconamura-of-jupiter: :iconmedli20: :iconthepossumface: :iconv747:

If you found yourself in the list above, that means:
- I like your art style, obviously!
- I like you as a person. This usually means you ensured my satisfaction with the final results and were pretty laid back when it came to just having a chat or discussing something.
- Your prices were fair and reasonable. This doesn't necessarily mean you were cheap, more that you weren't overpriced and I considered your art worth what I paid.
- You delivered a quality service. I was kept informed, there were no pointless delays, constant need of reminding or any general issues. I felt like I commissioned a professional.

It's hard to get on the list above, so if you did, congratulations! If it makes me look picky, you should know that I am. When I pay, I expect some quality of service and the higher the price, the more dissatisfied I will be if my expectations are not met. There's so many artists whining about commissioners, yet not nearly enough people doing it in the opposite direction. While I don't want to point fingers and spread negativity, it's enough to say that if I had a list for that, it would have a ton of entries. It also helps me appreciate the people that really deserve it, you should consider commissioning them sometimes, if you're looking for reliable artists!


As some of you may know, I've been trying to get into drawing art for quite a long time, but plenty of issues, mainly schoolwork, motivation and health, have prevented me from committing to it until recently.

Unlike what's currently in my gallery, the image shown below has finally been drawn by none other than myself. Crazy, I know.

Keep in mind I've only begun experimenting with the muzzle style and don't even know how I'll figure out my own unique way of drawing, but I like them more pronounced in general, which is the reason for its length and more square-ish nature. If you have a moment, let me know what you think of the image. I'd like an honest opinion to know whether I should actually bother trying to draw more.

I've drawn maybe two headshot sketches for practice and some doodles so far, mostly to get used to the drawing tablet I finally picked up, but got tired of seeing some of my friends drawing almost effortlessly (while a stupid head sketch takes me 4 hours at best..), so I forced myself to try and draw an actual full body image of a character and without using any references on top of that. Trying to ignore how self-conscious I am about my attempts looking like crap, a dozen hours later in Paint Tool SAI, dropping it multiple times due to lack of motivation or pain, I ended up with this and feel like it might not be that bad.. 
Katya Pearlcatcher
I have an account on Flight Rising, a web browser-based game about breeding dragons that's pretty fleshed out and has a sweet, big community around it. A friend who got me hooked on it, has been drawing some YCH artwork of the game's dragon species for in-game currency and offered to make me one for free. We were initially planning to base it on a dragon I made to somewhat resemble Katya, but ended up adding some extra detail to make it look even closer to her. Have a grumpy noodle-stache dragoness protecting her pearl.

He didn't want to be tagged :c
Sphinx Pony Oriental Dance
An animation I've been hoping to get my hands on for absolute ages. While the artist posted the image on other social media, she's given me free will on DA.

Look her up, she draws amazing stuff and was a wonder to work with!
