Heello there. Long time far away. I came back from my vacation since last month but things got little wacky with the college and studies. :P Just made some doodles this time to relax and get some nostalgia after a long time no drawing anything.

I agree they are messy in some places. The first ones(Captain and Twilight) I just make them as random doodles. Differently from Twilight, I was giving to the Captain a face. I didn't have a real appearence of him, just the imaginary look of him with dark brown skin, dark mane and brown eyes(and a big and muscled body). And I didn't do any shadowing yet. Perhaps I can make some effects on him to make him more... "volumous", if you know what I meant. And so for Twilight. The shadowing thing occurred only on Rarity because of her mane. It just needed the effect and I was wondering if I can make it. It was fun to try it, at the least. And when I done with the hair, the whole body was weird only with linear art; he needed shadowing too. :P

Little busy with personal issues. I don't really know what career to follow yet but I am getting to something. The college started since last month and I need to study for the first exams. But a work that is really interesting to me is Voice Acting.
I already finished a sketch of another OC from my fanfic, Foreign Eye. I didn't give a face to him either, but a fan did a fanart from a scene in my fanfic with Foreign, AJ and Twilight, when they invite him to enter in the Library to start a reunion for the Big Event.
For my surprise, it was almost exactly what I thought of how he would look like, except of his mane; it's too straight, like he used some weird gel hair or simply a cow gave him a nice licking on his head(hehe). And he has blue eyes.
Then this is what I really thought of how would he look like:
About him: He's a diplomat on service of his realm Fertile Lands(I don't know if this is a good translated name of a realm but). He helps Twilight Sparkle to organize the big event in the story and support her with the visitors from Canterlot, Los Pegasus, Cloudsdale, Manehattan and many other citizens in Equestria. But Twilight is a big fan of his books(he's reading one of his books, btw) and she couldn't handle herself but get nervous and anxious about working with him. He becomes very friendly with her; even more what he expected. Because of his job, he travels around Equestria and knows lot of places when he passes though them when he got a free time. But he still feels that something is missing in his life. He don't know what it is but it's really busy to think on that now. Until go to Ponyville. Curisosities: He has a deadly fear of balloons party.
I am really out of ideas/imagination with drawings in the moment.
I am focusing too much on my fanfic(that now I am planing to turn it to a possible book) that I am writing too much and drawing too less. It's like "tasting new arts" which is the Literature, I think. I am also writing poems/songs for the story for the main character, Octavia. And I can't share it here 'cause it's all in Portuguese, yah know. I have already wrote more than 200 pages(in A4 paper size), separating in Book I, Book II and Book III(basically The Lord of The Rings style; I really like it).
And I am planing to write more and more of it.
Anyway, I think I will post a picture very soon, specially about the last one.
"This happened when I got to SANA 13, one of the biggest anime/nerd/otaku event in my country, Brazil. Place to people whom likes cartoons, animes, mangas, movies, literature and even drawings. After a long time doing no drawings on real paper, I have got a look at this gift that I gave to Mimeme and just realised: I didn't put any shading effect yet! How outrageous! And by Rarity's mane, WHY it isn't dark?! Her mane is purple(or black in White/Black vision)! This MUST be fixed!
So, to fix this up, I started putting some shading effect in the drawing and this came up. I, of course, reduced some Brightness and Contrast with Photoshop. I think it's even cleaner than the one without shadows. Here's the link in case you didn't see it yet: LINK
And I still think there's some places that needs some shadows like on the background, close to the stairs and behind them; and so some pieces on Mim's wedding dress. So I'll update it in case I add some."
