((A cute little pic drawn up by the mod of ask-sunset-shimmer. A very noble little Brit indeed!))
A long time ago I mentioned I would draw Britannia for you - it took me a while, but I did it :D
Thus I thought it would be better to submit here rather than directly to Ask Britannia. Hope it’s alright! :3Very much alright! That’s an interesting use of colour. I like :)
Not yet complete but given my last attempt at Clarion call, I wanted another go. Specifically, it was to test a new inking method and I think this came out very well indeed. Basically, still a natural version of Clarion Call, but drawn with more patience and attention to anatomy. Graphite shading only on her, this was only to do a black and white version. The next will have colour though, albeit a limited palette. So yeah, colour version soon. :)
Art is mine
Clarion Call is to the Ask Britannia team.
((Behold the internet horse! Thanks again Loupgaros. We can’t wait to see the finished version!))
Here we have BUCK’s closing ceremony :) First up were some awards, and then one gigantic sing a long at the end xD
I apologise for the camera work, I maaaaay have been bouncing it a little to get in time with the songs tempo at one point… and then sang along…
Was absolutely brilliant and I can’t wait for next years :)
((MODS: This is just a little public service announcement for our followers who may not realise.
Ask Britannia cannot follow other blogs because it is constructed as a group blog with many contributors.
The mods certainly can and do follow a whole number of tumblr blogs on their personal modblogs, but that is their own business really (even though there are a LOT of blogs that we’re sure Britty would find interesting and entertaining.)
We’re thinking of ways in the future in which Brit can start following ponies and blogs she likes on her own terms but we figure we’ve got to get her out of her current story arc first. Can’t very well be checking tumblr with no internet access can she?
Watch this space for upcoming news and some updates regarding BUCK))
Going to have a brief gush about buckcon, because it was amazing.
Here’s one of the press videos that recently came out… our official ones are in the works.
This, right here, is what Brony is all about. Weather you’re having fun IRL with people, or doing it over the internet – this energy is what we’re all about.
Might as well upload this.The proportions aren’t quite right but it was just a doodle for fun. Drawn at BUCK it’s based on the activities of the Ask britannia blog, where Discord is being a nuisance to Clarion Call. Who is one of my favourite OCs by the way. So any excuse to draw her. Graphite shaded as well but the paper wasn’t the best so it looked a bit… unnatural to me. Might offer as some sort of fanart….
Discord: "I’̸m n̢ơt b̧ein̶g ̷a.̶.͢.͝ ̧n͞uis̀a͟ņće̕ ͜am ̵I?̢”
TCC: “Well, you’ve invaded our blog. Displayed scant regard for personal boundaries regarding myself. Taken us back in time and may, as a result, have completely messed up the space/time continuum resulting in harmony knows what repercussions… So what do you think?
Discord: "I thi҉n͞k I͝ need͟ to ̷up͜ my gam͝é..͏.̀ áll ̧thi͞s bein̡g ̧r͟ef̕orm̕ed ͟h͟as͝ ̷clear̵l҉y҉ so͠f͢te͠n͡ed me͏ ́u͟p̵."
((MODS: This is absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much for this. We just love the detail that has gone into Discord. And Clarion looks wonderful in natural pony style ^^))
((Hey everyone! While our mods are having a break, why don’t you enjoy a little something we prepared earlier and have had a little trouble fitting into the narrative a wee bit. What follows is a little short story inspired by this exchange between one of our mods: Hazelhooves and the wonderful Technomod. It features their OC’s: Mr. Teabiscuits: Head librarian of Canterlot Library, along with his assistant, Mumblehush as they encounter a patron who takes ‘travel literature’ to a whole new level. Enjoy.))
Britannia and the Overdue Library Book.
It was fifteen days later and all was quiet in the Great Library of Canterlot. Ponies of all trots of life roved among the high bookshelves and reading desks; whole new worlds just a few pages away from enquiring minds. Only the lightest hoof-steps and the occasional thump of a rubber stamp broke the silence of this bastion of learning.
It wasn’t to last.
A disquieting hum started to grow in volume, echoing among the high arches and causing the window-panes to rattle in the Library’s great glass dome. Disturbed patrons glanced up as a shadow began to blot the skylights: the immense canopy of a Royal Air Flotilla dirigible as it made its ponderous way over the centuries-old building.
I’ll be posting my BUCK swag up in stages (because I still need to photograph them and dammit, you kids I have 10 hour working days when I’m not at pony conventions)
Here we have a collection of awesomely cute little sketches and quick commissions I received while at BUCK.
Mostly of my bat pony OC, Svelte. You’d almost think I had plans for her in the coming weeks or something on Ask Brit <.<
At the top we have the wonderful headshot by dennybutt. I have always loved her style and need to get more by her of the cast of my mad little pony blog some time in the future ^^
Then we have a pic of Britannia in her Night Guard uniform by tracymod and I just love the way her cloak of the night came out.
The following two are a bit cheaty as I did them, scribbled together out of whatever sharpies I could find in the BUCK creative corner. I did a few others but, regretfully, they were lost between saturday and sunday. So I had to content myself with Contessa von Nocturne again (yeah, svelte turned out to be rather a popular subject this year) and a concept piece for a scene that will hopefully occur in askbritannia in the coming months.
Lastly is the back of a lovely print that arosu-sama gave me when I met her on the saturday along with a whole mass of prints and posters of her awesome work (which I will show off in an upcoming post)
I hope she realises that I ain’t no boss of no-one… save the two mares who have been my muses for just about two BUCKs now of course ^^;
Some digital signage, piles of conbooks and wristbands from BUCK! I’m really happy with all of this.
