What's up weird people from a weird fandom. I'm 22 yrs old currently going into the Art Institute of California, which was my goal school to go to, and I'm so happy to have made it into it, it's been my dream school to go since I was a teen. After I graduate, my goal is to work for animation companies, it'll be difficult, but not impossible. I'll do my best, for now, I'll enjoy drawing for fun ponies and maybe other stuff.

I'm also in the National Guard, every month I'm gone to drill training and pretty much do military training like shoot M-4s, but mostly get up at 2:00am to cook for over 600 soldiers. We only get 3 hours of sleep which is a pain in the butt, but hey, as long as I get the benefits, extra money, and they pay for my school, I'm a happy camper.

Right now my list is full, but soon I'll post prices for drawings which will move higher on my list. Is you watch me, I really do appreciate it very much. I promise you better art soon, for now, you're all gonna have to deal with my Nintendo 3DS Colors art.
Thank you for looking around and have a nice day.

For Those Wanting to Know About my OC

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 30, 2015, 4:09 PM

So a lot of you keep asking me this "Why did you name your OC Yoshi Ringo? Tell me why is your OC everywhere? Why do people keep drawing your pony?" Well I decided to tell this to a friend of mine, go through my journey before I joined Deviantart.

  • Boo Ringo and Ringo meeting Dashie were money commissions

It all started when I joined this art app on the 3DS, called Colors 3D.

I bought it for $7, I got started by drawing my favorite pony, Dashie. it was a pretty meh drawing, but it was my first digital drawing. I uploaded it and got very little attention, only 7 people viewed it, compared to the 100s of views other art got. Reason that number was low was because it was still a new app that just came out.
I moved onto another drawing, this time drawing a pony Dashie if she were a mail stamp. Again, not much but 3 likes, meanwhile people that now look up to me, before then I looked up to them, and they never even noticed me, no one did. 7 drawings later, I start getting more likes, and finally got 25 likes, enough to be in something called “This Week’s Best”, where it shows what are the most liked drawings of the week, I was at the bottom, but still so very happy.
A few people told me to make a pony OC, which I thought was stupid. Either way, two weeks later after thinking hard and drawing sketches, I came up with Yoshi Ringo. Yoshi, as in my favorite nintendo character, and Ringo, because my friend’s username use to be ring0, and I thought was awesome, so I asked if I may use that name.

I started drawing him a lot, it was an up and down with him. At one point I started doing drawings of group pony OCs from the community, that got major likes, about 50 likes, every new group pic I made got more and more likes. Then people started drawing my pony OC more, I still remember the first gift I received. After 6 months in Colors, literally every day I received 1-6 gift drawings every single day, sometimes they were amazing pieces, sometimes they were quick sketches, but no matter the quality, i saved each and every single one. People started including my OC in their little group pony drawings, and I was honored. People always asked me if they can draw my OC, and I say that he’s free to draw, to not worry, I started connecting with everyone there and became the 2nd most followed pony artist of the whole community. I couldn’t believe I made it that far, now people I looked up to, looked up to me, they always asked me for advice and if I can be their friend, just speechless I was.
Some of the reasons why these guys wanted to draw my OC was because of his design, it was simple, nothing too hard, and all the drawings I did of him, I gave him a dynamic pose and an expression full of it, and at the time I didn’t know it until a friend told me. “Dude, your pony, you draw him in very expressive ways, he’s always doing something, showing emotion, that’s why people draw him.” I took what he said, but still believed that there was another reason other than that.

Also at the time, I grew some people that hated me, they always kept coming to my gallery and asking people “why is he so popular? Why can’t I be like him, I want people to draw my OC, he doesn’t deserve all these gifts, more and better artists deserve them more than him.” Those comments kinda hurt me, I asked myself why do I get all these gifts, I felt a bit selfish getting all these and only repaying with a comment thanking them, so still receiving gifts, the least I can do is explain why I love the gifts, giving them a long thank you. Sometimes I even felt like those who drew my OC, wanted a drawing in return, some even admitted it, “Hey I drew your OC, can you draw mine?”

That might be one small reason why I left Colors, I felt like people were watching me, waiting if I was going to draw their OC in return, I did do a series of OCs, but only for OCs I love and who are my friends, I’ve gotten so many requests, it was too much for me. After my two week annual training, I’ve still received so many gifts welcoming me back, I continued doing my thing. Somewhere in November, I started this contest to see who can draw the best pony piece before the year ends, everything went well, me and a few did the judging. I did the hard work putting the little animation together and explaining why they placed there, over 75 entrees it was, again, too much for me, but I aim to make them all happy.

After the long stressful drawing and animation showing the results, I did get a few hate comments saying they should of placed higher, and are sad, one of them being my close friend since the beginning of me starting Colors, turned against me because I placed him in 10th place, that did hurt me, but I moved on from that, never speaking about it.

Later when I went to my two week training again and came back, I honestly wanted to move on from Colors and start drawing on a different device, I gave it a long hard thought about moving on. I finally did, but in the worst way I can, by leaving just like that.

Am I the only one who misses your collabs? Those things were great!!!!! It just gives me the fussy feeling that I'm able to be apart of something big.
Please bring them back.
