Okay! So let's get started!
So I've suddenly been getting quite a few commission enquiries from you guys, and as always, I really really appreciare you guys' interest in getting a commission from me! C:
But sadly, I'm afraid to say that commissions are still currently closed. I will reopen them soon, though, so for those of you who are interested, keep your eyes open for them! c:

Okay, so I previously mentioned that, at the con, I've sold all three of the original paintings I brought along with me, and that is Eclipse
, Nightmare Moon
, and Moon's Muse
. Big shoutout to those who bought them; I really appreciate it, and thanks so much for buying my babies! ^.^
I still, however, have the ones that I didn't bring with me to the con, and I'm currently looking to sell them for anyone who are interested. The original paintings I'm currently selling are (size and price available): Title

Headcanon Update: Second Sneak Peek and Question
I think the first sneak peek showing went pretty well, and I hope you all enjoyed! C: So for this reason, I think I'll be doing a second sneak peek for the book, this time with it focusing on the Ponies! I'll be showing it sometime in September, so keep your eyes peeled. O:
ALSO! I think I may have already said this in one of my past journals, but I may end up looking for someone who could perhaps help me in formatting the book to make it look nice and neat and such when it's an actual book. I've been using BookWright and it's been tons of help, but even still, I'd like to get an opinion or two on the book's presentation.
....Huh. This update wasn't that long. o3o
Upcoming Painting "series"
I had a poll awhile ago that asked you guys who's portrait I should paint next after Nightmare Moon. I used the names that rated the highest to present to my patrons and had them vote on whom I'd be painting next. It's definitely Nightmare Celestia. And I just finished drawing her and I REALLY like how the lineart came out, of which I'll be showing later.
Anyway, drawing the head portrait for Celestia gave me an idea. I was gonna just wait until I actually uploaded the lineart for that, buuuuuuuuuuuuut whatevs!
So I'll be doing a bit of a series of paintings for a little while, portraits of canon characters (and a little down the line, maybe even commissioned OCs) that will be painted with acrylics and glitter. Very similar in the manner of which Nightmare Moon was painted. C: The guaranteed characters you guys will be seeing in this little series are the Princesses (for Celestia and Luna's case, they ended up as "Nightmares") and the Mane 6 and Spike (as a grown-up dragon, maybe). The Mane 6 in specific will probably be painted with their Rainbow Power designs, but we'll see. O: I'm gonna take my sweet time with this, but I should really get back into the groove of painting; I'm a little bit rusty at it, so this would be considered... practice, I suppose.
Also! Each of these paintings will be available to buy once they are completed. However, just like Nightmare Moon's painting, they will be completely exclusive. As in, there will be no recreations, no prints made of them, nothing. Once the original painting is sold, that's it
. o3o So yeaaahhh. Keep a lookout and such! C:
So that's about it for now, I think. If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask! 8D
