As you may or may not have noticed, my page becomes rather quiet in the off-season, and last time I was all fine and dandy with that because we had a huge, half-year long break to wait through. I had a lot going on so I was okay with a hiatus. We're just about three months into the new year at this point, and things have changed up in my schedule. I have a lot more time to dedicate to doodling on my tablet, AND I'm hoping to make a career out of it one day. So this means I'm outputting a lot more art (I hate calling it art. Seems too easy for art. I'mma keep calling them doodles) and I'm proud of most of it.

Now, here's the catch. I don't draw ponies as often as I used to. Especially in the off-season. My focus has been on human bodies as of late (delicious!). So I've been practicing anatomy, pose, and developing my own style. Its a trial-and-error learning process, and I'm teaching myself, so its nowhere near a professional level yet, but I would still like to share my doodles with my 2000+ DeviantART watchers!

I'm trying to be considerate enough to ask you guys if you want me to post non-pony doodles up here, because the reason you guys are watching me is for my weekly Pinkie Pie strip. If people start getting spammed with my non-pony stuff, they might up and leave, and unwatch my stuff. That's no good for either party.

So should I post my non-pony stuff on here? If I get more than a few "Yes"es then I'll gladly start posting up some of my more time-sink-ey doodles up here (my sketch doodles I'll post in the journal). If I get a bunch of "no"s, then I'll nut up and shut up. And continue the hiatus.

Here's a few examples of what I'm talking about when I say non-pony stuff:







There's waaaay more where those came from if you'd like!

Go for it! Worst-case scenario EqD links all of your Pinkie Pie stuff anyway, so people can still come back for that. :P

I don't care. Spam away. I know one day the show will end. I follow pony artists not just for the pony but also for the artist.

And, deviantART isn't about pleasing everyone else, it's about doing what you love and sharing it. If you like your non-pony doodles, post them c:

Of course you can. I'll stick around. Your art is great. Good luck with your dreams as well. I believe you have a lot of talent.

Also the first pic reminds me of Wind Waker. :D

Well honestly even if most of us fallow you for ponies I doubt many would unwatch you for it. Besides if you post your non pony art it at the very least lets us know youre still here and would for the most part uncrease your watchers.

I already go though 100+ pieces of art a day so a few more won't hurt.
So my answer is, Yes, go right ahead.

Maybe one day soon. Right now I'm not confident enough in my ability to draw. I wouldn't want people to waste their money on me unless I could consistently prove I was good at what I'm doing.

Besides, I don't know how payment/pricing or any of that works.

well, i'm impressed with everything i see here, and after i posted this, i went and looked through your other pony stuff (before i only really saw your comics), and those were all amazing as well!

you should look around at other commission pages to get a general idea of how you want to price things. if you want some examples, i can help you out (i've payed for a ton of commissions).

if you change your mind, i will most certainly be asking both for this style and a pony as well ^.^

alrighty! first, because i like showing them off, here's my oc sheet: [link]

halfire doesn't charge more than 25
[link]

farthingale doesn't get too much above 45
[link]

JL Ryan is actually pretty cheap, not getting over 10
[link]

AphexAngel has quite a large range from cheap 5 dollar line drawings to 100 dollar full painted character with a background.

Interesting...

I think 10-30 sounds like a good range, but I'll have to do a lot more organizing, and specifics. I'll tell you what. Give me a week to set everything up, and I'll open up commissions. I'm going to shoot for next Wednesday.

Thanks for all the help on this! Nice OC by the way!

Your page, your choice, but I don't think you should be constricted by ponies alone. Do as you wish, but I support all art forms (Doodles included).

Nikols. It's your art, and you have a right to share what you want. if people don't want it, all they have to do is not look!

I do appreciate the fact that you want to ask your followers what it is they want, but in the end you are allowed to share what you want. we can only let you know what impression that work leaves upon us.

You could fire up a secondary account for posting the doodles, or perhaps a tumblr.
Either way, I'm fine with you posting random doodles, pony or not.

I don't really mind too much either way.
But if there is a whole lot of mixed opinions, i would suggest that you could make a non-pony account. Leaving a link somewhere directly to it.
But it is some pretty cool stuff, it would be a shame if you were not to upload it somewhere =3
