Dragoons:InsanityUnleashed by PoldalleLovesnare

I think you've done an awesome job on this piece, and considering that you've worked so incredibly hard to finish this, I opted to writ...

OC Qunari warrior - now in colours! by vonPipkin
OC Qunari warrior - now in colours!
I promised I'd colour this beast and by the gods, I actually managed. It's taken longer than I care to admit to finish, but I think it looks alright compared to the time I spent versus my relative inexperience with doing the ever elusive 'nice' colours.

So, there you have it! My very own kossith character :)

WIP Qunari OC by vonPipkin
WIP Qunari OC
My former Arvaarad Aqun-Atlok Qunari, now turned Reaver Tal'Vashoth OC, based on myself because one of my friends asked me how I'd look as one of these guys :P

I spent an enormous amount of time on these lines, I'm astounded I even got this far with it without loosing patience.

Anyway, I should practice colours, so I've decided I'll colour it as well... sometime pfft.

Okay, I mentioned it on tumblr and I'm going to mention it here too:

Who wants to do an OC art trade? I'd really love to draw some Spyro and MLP OCs! 

Message me if you're game :)
At least from me. I may finally be done traversing some really major rough patches and very time-consuming ordeals. 

So much has changed over the past few years! I just started my drivers license (which to you Americans probably sound ridiculous but let me tell you, it costs an arm and a leg here so it's not something you want to pay for unless you really need it) and got a new job! Actually I've gotten two new jobs within the span of 4 months. I also got married 3 years ago if anyone happened to miss that announcement, and moved into a house last year with my husband. Lastly we got a cat, which I'm super surprised at myself for, because I always thought I couldn't stand to have cats as pets, but Frigga is adorable as anything :heart: I still want a dog though... maybe next year!

Work related things
First I started working for a really old boss of mine at a catering company. Honest work (damn hard work, my joints have been absolutely killing me). Two months ago though, I got contacted my an international recruiter who thought I'd be a good candidate for a position at a major Internationally-based American marketing company here in their European department as their Print Production Manager for their clients up here in the Nordic region. I'll be starting the 1st of September!
I can't believe I got picked for something like this. My whole career throughout has been a constant up-hill struggle to earn enough credit within my field as a Graphic Designer for people to just glance in my direction. People just don't hire anyone with less than 8-10 years of experience any more, so you guys can probably imagine my surprise when they decided to put me on a 6-month trial contract despite production management not being my main focus these years.

Anyway, back in January I decided that 2014 was meant to be a game-changing year for me and it definitely has been so far. I hope that with the credit of such a large company behind me, I'll eventually be considered eligible by the packaging pharmaceutical industry - which is where I truly want to be, though that's a story for the future for now :)

Art related things
The single most stressful ordeal for me these past 4 years have been the fact that I've never had a permanent contract, but with a little luck and a lot more hard work, I will have earned that by February next year, and that means that a little more of the pressure is off which will actually allow me to do more art - primarily draw some Age of Heroes, sprinkled with various fanarts of series and comics that I like along with a little bit of calligraphy if I ever dare to show it here on DA ^^;

I went to Japan with my husband on our late honeymoon two years ago and had calligraphy lessons there by a very stern old man (he had the sweetest wife though). It really prompted me to learn more about it, and now I actually have the tools to practice it.

Anyways, it's been a long time DA. I'm glad to be back as much as my life permits it.

Thanks! With a 50+ hour work week at the moment, it's slow going I'll admit, but I'm in the process of colouring the latest lines I put up,so hopefully it won't be too long :)

Greetings, Maria.  How's the weather in Denmark?  Also, if don't mind me asking, what did you think of Season 4 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (if you've managed to watch that yet)?  Speaking of which, do you still remember that artwork I commissioned from one artist on DA that depicted Crona (in pony form) asking Twilight Sparkle about magic?  You know, it a gift I had done for you.

It's 15 degrees Celsius and sunshine. And I think season 4 of MLP had its ups and downs. There were episodes like the one with Daring Do where I really had to scratch my head, but then there were episodes with the CMC tackling bullying in a much better way than the Babs episode ever did and that was really nice to see. Of course I remember that picture! It's in my personal files here on my computer as well as in my favourites.

I wish it was that cold down here in Texas, where everything there is sweltering with extreme heat.  

I liked the two-part finale where Twilight Sparkle fought head to head with Tirek.  It was like reliving one of several fight scenes from Dragon Ball Z (the anime).  

I'm still glad that you loved it. :)

Forgive for changing the subject, but if you don't mind me asking, did you ever like the internationally-known Robin Williams as an actor (if not's that fine by me)?  Because he was someone I grew up liking in films during my childhood, especially with one of his most well-known roles as the hilarious and magical Genie from Disney's Aladdin (he made my childhood very memorable with that role).

Yeah, I'm definitely feeling better in the cold myself :)

And I have very mixed feelings about the season 4 finale because it had a lot of stunning visuals I really liked, but plot-wise it seemed a little on the skinny, formula-ish side which I'm not particularly fond of. That said I still think there were some very memorable episodes in that season in general.

It's fine. I knew well of Robin Williams, though I've never watched Aladdin in English, so I can't say I ever really grew up with his voice talent per se. I think he was an endearing actor in a lot of ways movie-wise, though his comedy shows wheren't really my cup of tea.

Hey Von! Sadly you are barely active on here anymore, which is a huge shame since you are very talented, and I have been in super deep love with Crona for too long. XD Her story is so interesting, to the point where I believe she would make the perfect canon character. Her design, story, just UGH, I love it! I've been thinking of a Spyro comic to work on, and I can't help but thinking about Crona in it, and the more I think about it, the more I wanna use her. XD I wanted to know if in anyway she was up to be sold off, I am completely broke (only have 83 cents in Paypal now XD) so I was wondering if I could do an art trade for her? You know, do some art pieces of whatever you would like, in trade for ownership of her. :) One thing I must say though, please don't feel pressed about it, I really don't mean to sound pushy! That is the last thing I want. Have a good day Von! :)

Hi Kari :) It honestly makes me really happy to know that there are people like you who think me talented and like my original creations - fandom setting or not. I know I haven't been very active at all here the past few years (it's a shame, I'd like to be more active myself). That said, Crona will always be a very very dear character to me as well and I don't think I could bear selling her off. HOWEVER, if you ever want to use her in your stories or art, you have my permission to do so :) 

I hope this is alright for now. I do intend to get back here when I'm not so damn stressed, but my career for the past 8 years has been a very bumpy one on account of the world-wide recession, so until I can get my footing properly, I will only be here on a sporadic basis. That said, I wholly wish to be able to contribute more as soon as I can.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I've doubted for years if I deserve such praise, but it still means a lot to me :heart:
