Critiques


This is your usual visual style and is as radiant as ever although some details should be taken under consideration, in my opinion. The visuals are stunning and colorful, the right colors on each ponies were used and it seems like everything in it's place, as it should be. The shades are done mostly...


Although not bad, it still needs a lot of improvement, mainly on the consistence and continuity of the dialogue, it's font type and balloons. The first detail I see is the dialogue changing from one font to another one since the last strip and this one, it's a kinda confusing and head-scratching dec...


This is a good deviation without a doubt. The posing is well-made and it catches perfectly the situation that happened in the actual episode. I like how both Applejack and Rarity are probably thinking the same despite their usual issues with their very different ways of thinking, Discord gotta be a ...


I don't know your exact reasons, but I could tell why you put this on your scrapbook, it is certainly less detailed than other artworks of yours. But first I will tell you what I liked from this piece. First, the cheer here is absolutely amazing and well portrayed, that's something you know how to d...

[[REALLY PERSONAL JOURNAL, READ IF YOU'RE ACTUALLY INTERESTED IN MY PERSONAL FEELINGS TOWARDS ART]]

Since I've been here in deviantART, I've always been part of a fandom; at first, I was part of the 'Legend of Zelda' one, then VGCats (among other things like There She Is) and then I mainly became part of the My Little Pony: FiM fandom and I have been here in this fandom for years now. Every time I'm on a fandom I draw things about it, I did it with everyone listed in here; and every time my love for the franchise or at least my love for drawing things about it started to fade, I noticed it, it just happens from one second to another, I can actually pinpoint the exact image in which I said: "it's enough, it's just not the same...". 

With VGCats it was with this one:
.Never Again. by ZSparkonequus
The moment I finished it I just thought it wasn't that funny anymore, the next VGCats picture was a crossover with an OC of mine and then a traditional drawing made in a school notebook, the decline of interest shows. After that, I started with My Little Pony.

MLP:FiM has been a big part of my artistic life for a lot of years now, more than half of my deviations are pony-related. I have 33 Zelda images, 66 VGCats images, and 315 MLP images; so it's hard to start to feel uninterested in the fandom anymore, at least not in the same way than before. Before I would never even think about it, I was hyped that the fandom and the show were still going and didn't understand people leaving the fandom or stopping watching the show. Nowadays it feels the total opposite; me wanting to know about the fandom feels obligated and dragged and the fandom in general feels in total decline and that's something every one of us seems to notice. I used to watch the episodes the day they aired and then again the next day, now it's really rare I catch them the airing day, weeks may pass and I have to catch up, I even skipped one episode solely by the synopsis, won't say which one... but... then... Then, when I actually watch the show, I remember why I'm still here, why I don't wanna stop until this is completely over and that is... that I just have too much fun when I watch the episodes, I love the characters, old and new, I love almost everything about this damn show.

So with all of this, I'm not saying I will stop doing pony images (for anyone that actually cares), I just know the moment may be close (I know it so well that it'll come that I have a comic prepared for it). Sometimes I say "it's not the same..." but I don't say "it's enough", so with that I know it's not the time for a goodbye to the pony fandom and MLP in general. 

But why is it that I've been so much time here with MLP and not that much with other fandoms? Well, I think it has to do with how active the rest of the people is. When you draw something for a dead fandom you'll probably get no response from anyone so it's not so fun. VGCats is hardly updated now and when I stopped doing Zelda drawings it was a time when TLoZ was really slow and the future didn't promise much (nowadays that has changed a bit for Zelda tho!). And that's also why I'm feeling like this with MLP until now, it is until now that I feel the thing is finally coming to an end so I see not much point in drawing ponies in the future (probably because of those stupid leaks, yeah, I was in the happening of that thing).

Now that I got all of that out of my chest, let's talk about the title of this journal in concrete.

Okay, so, now that my interest in drawing MLP related things is slowly decreasing and I'm not THAAAT interested in it; what will I upload in the future? Well, anything I like I guess, I want to dedicate more of my time to draw my OCs and just anything that comes to my head that I think is cool, about any fandom. Pokémon, Metal Slug, Zelda, Horror Art, etc. I mean, I actually already do that, if I want to draw about anything that's not Pony, I just do it; but the focus right now is 80% Pony and 20% Everything else, I want it to be at least 50-50 or even reduce pony to 40%. That's a FUTURE plan, that's for when I get totally sure that I don't want MLP to be the focus of my art, right now I want things to stay the same because I still like it. 
The shift in the art will occur gradually, you may not even notice it but rest assured it won't be "one day it is Pony, the next one is zero Pony". I want the future of this deviantART page to be about everything, not just a brony artist, maybe going back to my roots, drawing Toon Link, XJ9, Aeris or Doki from "There She Is!!" or drawing new IPs that I love like Houseki no Kuni or Touhou; or drawing my OCs or sharing my personal random art like before, random Photoshop drawings, my new abstract art, sharing my book, drawing manga, to show my progression and new art skills in other forms! Anything!! I want this to be about everything!

This is what my heart and head indicates me right now and I know it's the right thing, I know most of you are here for the pony art and I gained 90% of my notoriety and watchers because of MLP but I have to accept that it is time to let the new beginning in the horizon to come to me, hope you guys and girls stay. 

Cheers.

Comic 91: Make Better Friends But Keep Trixie
Trixie gotta step up here game as a friend if she wants to "keep" Starlight as her best friend. And who else to ask for help than the king of trolls! Since Discord had a similar problem with Fluttershy, he should know what to do... right?

Comic 96: Oh Snap!
This marks the final submission to the Art Season 2017-2! Concluding we have a comic about this last season, it appears Flutters has learned a thing about weird hand stuff from Pinkie (and maybe Lyra too). 
The "Art Season" is a time lapse in which I post all the things I draw during my summer and winter vacations (and sometimes during the semester too). I have a lot of things to draw on my queue so I want to draw a lot this winter break if I have any time! 
I'll post some extra stuff too on these vacations but first... let's end the semester.

I hope to keep doing these but I don't know if I'll be able to since I'm about to have a full-time job instead of college and a part-time job, which both have long vacations. My next job will be professional so it's not kidding around anymore. We'll see, only time will tell...

Take care!
