A Reunion by Simbaro
A Reunion
Took awhile but its done! Main panel for the introductory page of a new comics series I'll be starting. More information and the first page should be up on the gallery after I've finalized stuff like type fonts, title art and all that. Will have more information on the project overall once that's up as well.

Setting is my own, but will take place in the larger Equestria Prevails Universe>>>:iconequestria-prevails:

The Chase by Simbaro
The Chase
Once in awhile the royal guard that patrol amongst the upper spires take the time to pursue restless, indubitably menacing (perhaps even revolutionary!) elements of the lower streets. This has nothing to do with one Sergeant Sky Diamond's ongoing vendetta (3 years and counting at this point), against a childhood influence gone rogue, no sir!


This piece really struggled with me, and I've finally given up working further on it. It goes to show that I still have a lot improve and get comfortable with regarding my style of painting, and it will only get better and smoother with ongoing practice. My current color palette due to the setting of Concordia is also growing a bit stale on me. So perhaps something in a bit more of an exotic or strange of a setting for the next painting.

Also possible ideas for characters if I do decide to commit to short stories set in the EQP Universe. Promising ideas in my head, but I'll need to work out a narrative structure first

Brainstorms 01 by Simbaro
Brainstorms 01
Missed a post last week due to quite a bit of time just painting ideas and whatevers. Still considering which painting to really focus on from here. 

Want to do something with the cart and the rat though..not a painting though. Maybe small project for a 3D model and animation. Lots of cool things to think about.

The Royal Seat of Concordia by Simbaro
The Royal Seat of Concordia
The dark shadows of the royal spire trembled softly today. A royal guard gave me a small nod, raised hoof motioning for silence. I wondered what was going on.

"A dignitary I think." came the whispered reply from Oasis, next to me. "From Equestria, so I was told."

"That's pretty far off, hopefully the drums of war have not reached the inner continent just yet--"

"uh oh..." came the whisper, as we rounded the corridor into the main audience hall. It was filled with the fury of beating wings, snarls, harsh words struck by irons.

"Looks like our Princess Stella is in one of her moods again, hopefully she doesn't bite off the head of the dignitary while she's at it."

I shrugged with a small smile, gazing upward at the crimson figure silhouetted by the sunlight.

"You know how the Concord Flame is Oasis, all that fire goes somewhere in the end."



Time's up. Would want to polish this more, but the next painting calls.

Paint It Again: Oasis Stop by Simbaro
Paint It Again: Oasis Stop
Update to an old painting from 2013. Not as polished as I would like, but the challenge was to stop painting within an 8hr time frame. Ended up being around 9-10 hrs so i'm a bit rusty. Will be doing more of these and smaller paintings per week to improve my skill.

University is over and done with, although I think it was simply the first stage in my overall artistic learning and experimentations.

Although I am focusing on 3D graphics and computer technologies like VR in the foreseeable future, the recent success and reception of Lullaby for a Princess was very encouraging to me overall on continuing my journey with traditional and other painterly media was well. 

I've grown a lot as an artist, both in what I have seen, and what I have accomplished over the past 4 years. Before Lullaby Project, I was heavily involved in MLP Online, one of the community's first ever successful RPG games, even though it got taken down by Hasbro, that spirit of wanting to make something bigger than myself caused me to seek out and involve myself with Warpout in the first place. Over in school I picked up and learnt many new soft wares I never even heard of, new ways of expressing myself in the computer, and it's been a great ride.

As such, while I have many updates planned for new paintings and revisiting old ones from years ago, I am still very open to helping out in the MLP community as time permits it. Shoot me a note for a chat, and if anything, I can always at least lend an ear and give some advice, or point you to other people. 

However for the immediate future, I'll be having a good look at some of my old work, and updating them via the Paint It Again challenge.

Fostering creativity is a matter of self discipline and relationship networks. Do not be too secular about your own works, and be open to being part of a larger, more wonderful experience with others. 

Cheers!

Excellent work from all of you on Lullaby, but man. Those backgrounds. As astonishingly beautiful as the song itself.
