Bontkraagterroristjes by TheArtrix Bontkraagterroristjes by TheArtrix
The result of the past few Livestream sessions is here, and it's titled fur collar terrorists in Dutch because I'm clever like that.

Basically, I felt like doing an effort piece and this idea was on my mind for some time. The concept ranged from them hanging out with some of the other kids, Cheerilee busting them trying to smoke cigarettes but eventually I went for a more tame variant where their biggest "offense" is loitering and being pre-teens, which Cheerilee finds endearing or some shit.

As to what a "fur collar terrorist" is, I can say that it is rougly the Dutch equivalent of British chavs except they're not like chavs in many ways. They can be easily recognized by the tacky fur that covers the collar of their often-expensive jackets and are usually perceived as a nuisance by juvenile shenanigans and loitering. While it's typically a racially tinted phrase, this phenomenon has been observed with just about any race that resides in the Netherlands (which is about all of them).

As for the piece itself, I'm satisfied, though it's far from perfect. But I had fun working on it and fun streaming it in the process. I'll turn the recordings into a time lapse, but for now you can watch the process almost in its entirely by checking out the recordings on my Livestream channel.

If annoying the adults with your sheer youthful presence and gizmos is a superpower, then yes.

Originaliteit wordt niet altijd in dank afgenomen, niet dat 'ie het slecht deed, maar in verhouding tot de tijd die ik er in heb gestoken was de response matig.

Oh wel, je kan niet alles hebben. Je feedback is zeker gewaardeerd.

Ja, dan kan ik me voorstellen dat alles een beetje vreemd is. DeviantART heeft een commissie tool maar die gebruik ik niet omdat ik het niet nodig heb.

Ik waardeer dat je van me een commissie wilt afnemen. Alle informatie over mijn commissie dienst staat hier. Betaling gaat via PayPal of via de bank.

You did a nice job giving them appropriate clothing, from Applebloom's farmer-appropriate jeans and Sweetie Bell's skirt to Cheerilee's cutie mark earrings. I also like the slightly more realistic-looking Ponyville in the background.

Fur collar terrorists are both feared and hated. You can't escape from them, 'cause they're everywhere.

Holy crap. Far from perfect?

I want you to know I very very rarely fav human!ponies, the concept is just not appealing to me, BUT this is gorgeous! The details is so nice, right down to the wear and tear on Scootaloo's scooter and their outfits and uuggh. Must fav.

I know an artists worst critic can be themselves but don't sell yourself short dude.

or discourages. It depends who you are I guess. When I was overly critical of myself I did not pick up a pencil for two and half years. The thought now of going that long without sketchin and artin gives me nightmares.

There's a difference to being critical of your own work and being insecure. It's accepting that as an artist, you will fail at times, there's going to be times when you make artistic decisions that you regret later.

The trick is to be confident in what you do, realize that you're not going to please everyone and most importantly, not be content. There's a difference between not drawing because you are afraid that you screw up or drawing something and then taking a good honest look at it and going "what if". Like biological evolution, the development of an artist is a continuous and gradual process.

But yes, it's frustrating as fuck to see that self-criticism from artists whose art you really like, I've been there.

Oh dear, Equestria Girls.

There's too little information on the new series to adequately form an opinion about it, but from what I've seen, humanizations in the fandom had little effect on the decision on Hasbro's part. It's much more likely that Hasbro is looking for a way to compete with franchises like Monster High, which is a terrible prospect.

Then again, the concept that was shown is said to not be final, and there is talk about it being more along the lines of Sailor Moon.

As long as the two series remain distinct and separate entities, it shouldn't be much of a problem as far as My Little Pony goes.
