A friend informed me of this after the last carrot illustration.
Archive for Art by me
Inspired by a conversation I had with a friend.
Story goes like this. I asked my friend if she ever noticed that in many languages, the colour orange and the fruit orange are the same word. She hypothesised that this was because in nature, the fruit orange was probably the main thing you saw that was that colour. I pointed out to her that carrots are orange too. She added that carrots are grown underground, so you probably don’t see them often.
I spun this theory around to create this whimsical piece. Hope you like.
So, I’ve been watching the new My Little Pony(MLP) series on the suggestion of some friends. I grew up watching some of the movies when I was young, but was never a die hard fan. Due to its target audience, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is quite episodic with the exception of the first two episodes in Seasons 1 and 2. I really like the art style used in this show; it is simplistic and reminds me of flash the way it is drawn and animated. The series has a huge internet following and as a result the show has fans in various age groups. The show itself has been really supportive of its internet fandom such as using suggested names for miscellaneous ponies. Hasbro has not taken down episodes of the show from Youtube, which I believe might be a nod to its fanbase (knowing full well that they’ll probably make more from selling merchandise).
I’ve been pixelling avatar cakes for a while from when I used to visit Gaia Online a lot. I’ve take this old idea and mashed it up with the new My Little Pony series to give you… MLP cakes.
Below are Princess Celestia and Nightmare Moon
Having not done a drawing for aggesss, I signed up to a Santas Workshop in deviantART and drew this picture as a gift. There are still many things I dislike about this piece, but not bad for having not drawn in a while…
After much faffing around, I’m just going to post this up. I’m relatively happy with it, though have no idea why anyone else would be interested in seeing my face. *shrugs*

In hindsight, I should have probably saved more WIP shots….: Read more
