It's time I cleared out the journal slot anyway.

In personal news, I'm going on a trip to the seaside this Friday! It'll last two weeks, which means I'll be mostly away in the first two weeks of August. Licks to everypony who misses me during that time. I'll still be able to stay connected from there, but not nearly as much, as I don't know how well it'll hold or how much time I'll have for it all. Maybe it'll be enough for a couple interview questionnaires. We'll see.

I'll be taking some arting implements with me. I hope I'll end up drawing at least something. I always end up procrastinating or being distracted or thinking "now's not the time" and in the end only putting in two hours of doodling or so. It's sad, really. It's the reason I don't submit anything. I hope I'll get over it eventually.

I've also finally changed my dA description a little. It was about time, as I've been doing much more than just commenting and a lot less of said commenting (I'm very sorry for that, artist people).

I probably should do more things, but I end up scatterbrained all day. Summers can be like that. They're always like that for me.

I hope things are going more or less well for everyone!

G'day, mares and gentlecolts! I'm just one of the bronies who likes the show, the community and the great things we produce. I particularly like to give feedback and appreciation to artists of the community. I believe that whether you're a maker of pictures, custom figures and other things, music, animation, fiction or whatever else you can think of that doesn't fall into these categories and is related to pony (including good cheer, by simply being a good person), you are contributing to the life of bronydom as a whole, and it is my view that for such things, you should be rewarded with appreciation.

Cherishing our community's creative members is part of being a brony for me. It's something like my creed, and I hope that others will do likewise and give bronydom's active members at least a little bit of helpful feedback and thanks. If you like something, I encourage you to at the very least note what you like about it and relay it to the artist. I know firsthoof how uplifting and helpful it can be.

As part of that, I like to try and contribute to the community through pony-related and art-related word things. You may have seen my (admittedly amateurish) interviews of pony artists appearing on Equestria Daily, or you may have seen me participating in the rather uniquely open, fair discussion-focused and audience-involving podcast of Babble with Bronies (hosted on cinemaquestria.com). If you haven't, I strongly encourage you to go out and find them, as they and the people involved in them are both worth your attention.

I'm also trying (and failing) to make things myself. The example of other brony creators is just too inspiring. My artistic skills are not really beyond the doodle-on-scraps-of-paper level, but I want to make things - pony things - nonetheless. Currently it's visual art that is my focus, both in hunting and in producing, and I hope to become better in time, if only to look credible when giving feedback.

Everypony is best pony, but all glory to Twilight Sparkle.

Congrats on your new post at EQD! For your feature, here are some artists that may qualify and be of interest in interviewing. I do apologize in advance if these artists are already considered massively popular:

Nimaru: This artist may be better suited for a tumblr spotlight as most of his work pertains to that with his own headcanon involving OCs but I think he makes a great example of a self-taught artist that became inspired by MLP to improve their artistic abilities. For reference, his quality of art has certainly approved if you look at his tumblr.

Raikoh-illust: Though not always pony-focused, Raikoh's use of lighting and shading in his works had sort of a peculiar quality to them. I suppose I can describe as mesmerizing to me. 

kilala97: Even though she's relatively a newcomer on Deviantart, she has exploded in popularity but I figure she's worth a mention all the same. I'm sure you know of her by now with her next generation characters of the FiM cast but I do find it amazing that can do different art styles and produce them at a reasonably fast pace. But of course, quantity should not overshadow quality necessarily. Her characters have come into their own and I daresay distinctive among other OCs (personally I adore Nimaru's more though).

Pridark: This artist has amassed a large enough of a gallery to give a good feel of his/her style and lingers toward show accuracy. As for the kinds of pictures s/he may occasionally make, here's an adorable Twilight I just found.

What qualifies an artist for an interview as opposed to just being part of the artist spotlight?

Above all, subjective selection. Honesty is the best policy here. But in general, an artist should have a long-ish gallery (be it here or elsewhere) and be SFW enough to match the usual posting standards over at EqD. With a short gallery or with an artist just recently come back from the dead, I simply don't have enough to say and ask them about. And highly famous artists, particularly old ones, have had a lot of attention by now and keep having it, and with most of them having been interviewed and given truckloads of attention already, they hardly need more. I normally look for people from roughly in the middle, those who have something in their work that can produce enough questions for them to answer while having enough of that work for it to be established.

Well, I won't lie; I only asked to see if I could suggest my own self for an interview. Probably best to upload even more pony art beforehand though, if you're on the lookout for a longer gallery.

I can't think of any other suggestions that haven't already been featured or suggested. Feelsbadman.gif :[

Well, you do have remarkable perspective skills with them pencils. If you can, draw more on blank, non-lined paper, it seems to attract better reception by default. You can sure render a lot with those lines, I see. Plus, you have a fine understanding of the pony form, as well as of shading principles and composition. All you need to get into a spotlight is to make a few more pony pictures (you already have a nice lineup), ensure internal quality level consistency in them and not make them gory. Then I'd say you're all set for a spotlight place. This and this and this seem like particularly good examples. And eventually, maybe a few months and more pictures down the line, I could interview you - after all, I'll want pencil-and-paper people as well, as I aim to cover many styles.

Hmm...I say you should check out either kuisui.deviantart.com/ (beware of much Lunacord art) or aquagalaxy.deviantart.com/ .
Both are fabulous artists that deserve as much recognition that they can get! :3

Now that's an uncommon pairing. While she doesn't look like full interview material just yet, she may make it to an artist spotlight for now, we'll see. As for Aqua, added to the list, for sure.
