Eris… Well I don’t know her personally. She has a habit of trying to get a rise out of all the bureaucrats at the Office of Records every few weeks. Says we all need to have more fun. What I need right now is a maiiiilbox!
(I felt a little ambitious. Those draconequus sure have lots of little bits for me to fail at drawing. The result: I’m no longer ahead of my queue… Oh wells. -CS
Further note! Last ‘Elements of Harmony’ update is tomorrow! People tend to lose track with long arcs and I’d like to get along to answering some question questions because people are putting the effort in. Because Skyrim is hilaaaarious. Any further questions in that vein may be answered at a later date. Much, much later date. Sorry, but it’s only fair.)
Why does this keep happening!?
(The Saga continues!)
My flank is as blank as the day I was sired. Uhh, born. Ew…
Whirly Willow is special to me. She takes my crazy ramblings (and most of my disposable income) and manages to turn them into exactly what I wanted to wear. She’s cool and enjoys her job and, well, is just plain rad. Even if she doesn’t know she’s the closest thing I have to a friend in Canterlot. Life in the city would probably be horrible without her. Thanks for being you. Umm, this probably isn’t what you meant when you asked your question but it’s from the heart.
(Well this took me an epic amount of time to draw, partly as I was learning Sai as I went and partly because it actually means quite a lot to me. Without Whirly existing I never would have started up this Ask A. In 2011 I was getting bogged down in the mindless ‘hate every OC’ mentality that was being thrown around on Ponibooru until I saw an unambitious, neat and unassuming OC. While it’s probably impossible to remove yourself from ego completely, it was a breath of fresh air in a community that sometimes takes itself a little more seriously than it should. So I made this; as much for me as for Whirly. It’s probably the best thing I’ve ever drawn in my life, so I’m glad that it turned out this well (at least I hope it did argh blah artist angst. -CS)
Oh! Of course I couldn’t leave it at that - here’s Whirly and the Night Guards’ Tumblr: http://askwhirlyandthenightguards.tumblr.com/
Why does everypony want me to get fired!? Do you realize how much working for the Government pays? I have a standard of living to keep!
I’m not a very religious pony, but I think that’s probably blasphemous. Not only that, but I’m pretty sure that Celestia is my boss. I need my crummy job…
(Fifth! It occurs to me that I’m basically making a week’s content and throwing it at the wall.)
Whatever catches my fancy~ I do like hats though. Covers my mussy hair.
(Fourth. Maybe I didn’t miss something on this one!)
Oooo, I like that idea. There’s a fresh food market in the square, and I didn’t spend all my wage on costumes this week. I sometimes forget I don’t work weekends (unless there’s an audit).
(Three done! My hand is starting to cramp! Send messages while I take a break!)
Wait… I didn’t think this through.
(Second! Man, I need to break for foods)
