The results of some environment brainstorming for a side project down the line. These pictures here will be colored and polished.

For those who recognize the setting, I hope to have a nice cup of tea with you all at Caligula's in the future, Delicious Friends.

Finally a start of new things! 

Apologies for the recent lack of updates. Job searches and other stuff took over my life for a bit, but I'm back, and after some experimenting, have decided on both the size of each page, and overall approaches to the story in general.

Updates tentatively bi-weekly, but don't worry, i'll have work in progress shots, and some other smaller projects uploaded as well. In fact, there might be another smaller, more compact series I'll be doing. It won't be pony, but hopefully it'll be entertaining still.

Tentative since it is hardly feasible to make a living off this, and I have responsibilities of the monetary kind now that I'm out of University. I'll try hard to stick to the bi-weekly schedule, but it is something I can't guarantee.
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

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.
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.

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