First drawing of the year. And it's Mike! Erm... a pony... erm... Mike as a pony? Well, that's what he gets for misplacing some of his magical potions and then drinking them by accident.
I've been meaning to draw him as a pony for a while now but never could do it. Now I did.
I could have done it better, I reckon, but for what I have accomplished -not meaning to brag about myself- it's quite good! I also took this as a chance to introduce Mike's logo/symbol thing. I used it as his cutie mark. I'll probably upload it soon for details.
Oh, by the way... I have mentioned this in a journal before but just so in case you missed it and is having doubts now that you've seen this drawing I will say it again: Yes. I am
a brony. There is no secret in that. I am aware that some of my watchers are not bronies and some are even pony-haters
. I'm fine with that and I respect it. The fact that I may draw ponies eventually (like now) or even that I have just drawn my dragon OC as a pony (I "ponified" him, as it is said) does not
mean I will switch the focus/theme of my art. It does not
mean I will stop drawing dragons or anything that leads to filling up my gallery with ponies. I am a fan, I do like those ponies and I do wish to draw them every once in a while, but I am not THAT
much of a fan to switch from dragons to ponies entirely like some other artists have done once they became hooked by the show like I did. I am not
going to cease drawing dragons to draw ponies instead. Yes, there will be ponies, but you can expect pony-related content to be rare. Heck, I'm a brony since the show began (that's what? About three years now, right?) and so far I have made only one pony pic. This one pic here is the second. (those other two ponified dragons in my gallery were commissioned works or something. They do not count.) So you see... if I were to ever switch my theme over to My Little Pony, I would have already done it years ago, so if you are not a brony or just dislike ponies, you have no need to hate me or even un-watch me. I understand you probably watched me for my dragon art and I am not changing that anytime soon. Eventually there might be a pony or two here and there, but you can simply ignore those if they are not of your taste! Dragons will keep being my main thing so you don't need to worry about theme changes or whatever. Dragons are still
my favorite and my gallery will keep on being draconic territory.
My journals and favorites however might have lots of pony stuff, but come on... I like art and ponies and I just have to favorite things I like. That's no different from faving dragon art or whatever, and journals are just words! I like/need to talk sometimes and since I don't really have anybody to chat with on certain things, write them in journals usually suffices this necessity. So again I state: Art-wise, my gallery stays draconic territory. (Also, do not expect to see Mike as a pony again or at least anytime soon. He's not a shape-shifter. -I actually don't like shape-shifting characters. Bleh... it's like they don't know what they are/want to be.-)Michael Braveheart is copyright to myself.
