Some My Little Pony artwork for fun :)

Haven't been updating my blog as I should have so  here are some My Little Pony pieces I did for fun. Hope you all enjoy, more to come soon!



Sorry the lighting is not better on my watercolor here.
I only took a few photos on my phone before I gave it to a friend :)

My Little Pony : Frank Frazetta The Egyptian Queen / Rarity Mash up.

Here's my Frank Frazetta The Egyptian Queen / Rarity Mash up. I had to cutes-ify it with Rarity and Spike.. and of course Opalescence. 
I posted this sketch a while ago and finally had a moment to finish it for the amazing Paul Lau and his awesome Core Games store up in Vancouver! If your up there, go and check out the original at his cool store!

RIP Robin Williams, 1951-2014

A quick sketch of Robin Williams. He brought so much laughter to us all. Personally, I always felt that you could see that he experienced pain and he often talked about sadness of life but he choose to bring laughter to our lives. Thank you Robin, you will be missed. RIP.
