A wise king never seeks out war. But, he must always be ready for it.
First you need to sketch, then procrastinate the thing a lot, and ‘eventually’ finish the thing. Don’t forget to be inactive during months once in a while it’s really important!
No Daily Livestreams; New Update Schedule!
Sorry guys… no daily livestreams until further notice due to an unstable Internet connection. Ordinarily, I, the mod, wouldn’t complain about this, but these are extraordinary times, HMM? Dumb thunderstorms! >:I
In addition, I will begin updating this blog about twice per week starting tomorrow. No need to wait for months between updates! :D
Say Goodbye to “Thanks for X Followers” Posts
To avoid participating in any and all popularity contests, there will be no follower-milestone posts for any of my blogs. In addition, all previously proposed plans to create such posts are now rejected. Therefore, the storylines of my blogs will not be interrupted by such posts that will otherwise appear from time to time.
Although I appreciate that there are readers who are interested enough in my blogs to follow them, I wish to make it clear that I have no intention to draw for popularity. Rather, I only draw for the sake of storytelling so that people, like you, can read for their entertainment, and I wish to continue drawing for this specific reason.
I hope that you all understand this decision that I have made, and I thank you for your help in keeping my blogs going.
Hey Hey Hey!
Sadism season is in again! With my sadistic side awakened, I’ll be able to write a vivid and compelling storyline for Ask Sadistic Pinkamena for the rest of the blog’s second chapter. Huzzah! :D
A GaMERCaT shoulder bag? Can it be true? It certainly can!
OMG I FUCKING NEED THIS NOW <33333
500+ Followers on Ask-Sadistic-Pinkamena Blog
However, while I did “have a picture planned out for posting once I reach 500 followers,” this picture has not yet been drawn. Due to the unexpected rise in the number of followers in such a short amount of time after the reblog, and since the milestone of 500 followers has already been surpassed, I have decided to skip the aforementioned picture.
Therefore, another picture will be planned as a replacement, and it will be posted once the blog reaches the milestone of 1000 followers.
EDIT: To avoid participating in popularity contests, there will be no follower-milestone posts for any of my blogs, including Ask Sadistic Pinkamena.
Accepted: Increased Frequency of Posts on Ask-Sadistic-Pinkamena Blog
I’m planning on taking the challenge to post two (2) updates per week on my Ask-Sadistic-Pinkamena blog. I’ve been neglecting my followers for too long, and I can at least curb their impatience by updating more frequently. Therefore, I might draw responses in shorter photosets.
It’s worth a shot!
Being online does change your brain, but so does making a cup of tea. A better question to ask is what parts of the brain are regular internet users using.
Creativity is the residue of wasted time.
Drawing Style v8 - Coming Soon!
An exciting new drawing style will be applied in the near future! This time, anatomy will not be the only feature that will be upgraded. Colors, rather than outlines, will be heavily used to compose shapes. This will allow the blocking technique to be used for sketches, while lighting will become a crucial element in the process.
More details will be added shortly.
Upgrading to Drawing Style v7.3
This latest drawing style incorporates a brand new technique for the conceptual and sketching stage of all of my future artworks:
- Sketch the artwork in my sketchbook.
- Scan the artwork into my laptop.
- Lineart and color the artwork in Photoshop.
Did I also mention that this drawing style includes new pony anatomy styles too? Indeed, I’m completely renovating the style in which I draw my ponies. Unfortunately, this also applies to Scootaloo and Pinkie in my Pinkamena blog, so the latest update there will be delayed by a few weeks.
At least I’m gonna be drawing in a consistent style. So much for convenience for the poor followers! xD
