Hello! I am a 21 year old digital cartoonist who specializes in drawing blooper-reel style comics for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I am also studying the field of robotics at a low key community college in Chicago, Illinois.

My OC is Stormy Bluff, the very confused Pegasus pony. He doesn't have a back story of any kind. He just randomly shows up places, completely clueless of where he is or how he got there. Does he have short term memory loss? He forgot...

I have always loved building and creating things with my hands, and drawing has always come second nature to me. While the actual origins of me drawing cartoon animals is sketchy, I remember being heavily influenced by my favorite movie at the time, Balto. Prior to that point, I drew mechanical things such as trains, cars, and wouldn't you believe it, even computers. At that point in time, I always stated that I was awful at animal/human art and refused to even attempt it at times. After becoming obsessed with Balto, I took it upon myself to begin learning how to draw cartoon animals. That is what soon led me into the furry fandom, where I broadened my developing skill from feral animals to anthropomorphic as well. After I got my hands on a better computer than my original Pentium 4 Compaq laptop I got hand-me-down from my father, I purchased Adobe Flash through my school and I taught myself Flash vectoring, learning and experimenting with the program over time.

I came into the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom very early on in the show's run. My first episode was actually 'Boast Busters' when it premiered on the Hub for the first time. The fact that I already drew anthropomorphic art really made it easy to segway into drawing our cute little ponies with relative ease.

I have never had any formal training in drawing, or using Photoshop or Flash. Each of my skills are self-taught, and I am constantly practicing to improve my style. How I create art, some may not agree with. That's okay, I've been told I have been doing it wrong for years. If that is indeed the case, I certainly have been doing it wrong the right way. Helpful critiques, however, are always welcome.

I sketch each and every character, object, and background on paper first using just a normal #2 pencil. I work at a school so pencils and fresh printer paper are easy to come by. Each picture is then scanned and digitized using Adobe Flash CS5.5 with a Wacom Intuos4. My method of creating art isn't as fast as other methods, but knowing that each comic contains only images that I personally created, and not public consumption vector files fills me with immense satisfaction.

I read and immensely appreciate every one of my comments, but don't often reply. I am shy, and a bit unsocial, so I struggle to think of anything else to say than "Thank you".

Re-posting my artwork is fine as long as you ask permission first. However, do not ask to trace or re-color my artwork. I am very much against traces and recolors, as they take almost no skill to do, and is 100% art theft.

So I'm sitting here at work drawing frames for my next Tumblr update, and I realized something... Redrawing the same scene multiple times sucks. Traditional media should have three basic tools at the artist's disposal: Undo, Copy, and Paste!

Seriously, all joking aside, being able to consistently redraw an image multiple times is an awesome skill to have, but it is extremely obnoxious to do. Will I stop doing it, though? Heck no!

Oh yeah, I'm also gonna try to communicate a little better, so expect an increased journal frequency from me.
