Happy Fat Tuesday! [Feb. 28th, 2006|11:59 am]

It's Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras), the day before the start of Lent. This year, I'm giving up meat again and going vegetarian for 40 days. Earlier today, I went grocery shopping and bought a bunch of "fake meat" products. I can't believe they make vegetarian ground beef, LOL!!

In pony news, yes, I will be taking one commissioned work for March. However, I think the spot may already be filled from one of my previous customers. If you are interested in a custom for April, please let me know.
March is going to be a moderately busy month. My brother is visiting for a few days before he moves to Florence, Italy. However, I do have a few days off work during the middle part of the month.

Here's a picture of Memento's eye and forehead design, which was inspired by a stained glass window.

I'm still designing her main symbol and figuring out what to do with the hoof designs. Her cute little bat wings are almost done. They are built with layers of handmade paper on wire frames.

Also finished the new desktop background for this month, which features Shamrock Spring. ^_^

Okay...back to answering e-mails! Hope I remembered everything. Oh, and thanks to everyone who commented in my journal! ^_^

Thanks for the comment. The eyes look better in real life...I used some paint with metallic bits and it doesn't photograph quite right. ^_^

Re: Memento

Thank you! I tried to base them off a real horse's eyes.

Thanks! I thought about giving up chocolate, but I don't think I can do it. ^_~ Being vegetarian is tough...I always feel like I'm hungry.

Re: kute evil pony

Thanks! It seems like the dark ponies have quite a following. I like them since they are a nice change from Hasbro's pink ponies. ^_~
