Is there a way to donate without getting any of the rewards and without going through paypal? Sorry if it’s listed up there and I didn’t read it closely enough.
Don’t worry! If you don’t want rewards you can just not put in your address and I won’t send you anything. Or I think if you pick a random number like 16 or 23 dollars it doesn’t pick a reward either?? I’m not sure! But if you let me know when you donate I can save your reward for someone else. c:
I think Paige is kinda cute, and Drake looks really cool! (It's sort of my headcanon that the random holes the changelings had was because they were starving - they'd begun to physically waste away. Properly fed changelings are more solid, and as a scout drake would need to be topped up in prearation to explore.)
I actually never thought of it that way? See guys this is why I just adore hearing about other people’s thoughts and concepts on alternative worlds. This is a REALLY COOL CONCEPT, they’re literally starving and being devoured alive which makes them desperate and just the whole escape explodes! IT’S REALLY COOL.
Yeah, in my AU of mlp stuff I’m not sure how I’m even going to portray Celestia/Luna if they will be lore or princesses or what, but in that world where Drake and Charming live there are actually multiple kingdoms and multiple alicorn families who help rule. And there will be just so much fun plotting to do with it all ahhh I can’t wait. I need to just sit down for a week and work on their world and their stories. <3
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me, this is so cool I really liked it and might have to use a bit of it for my own stories with the changelings.
Are you going to make some kind of a storyline or just post wonderfull draws? I'd really love to see a storyline! I just imagine Harvest Tale telling a story about the adventures of your OCs around Cafe Delights! It'll be amazing! ((Sorry for my bad grammar and my crazy imagination))
I plan too! No worries there!
Right now I was focusing on getting all my older artwork posted from 2012-2013! c: Now that it’s all done I can finally focus on trying to figure out more of a story to start. Just gotta start somewhere!
I plan to feature all of my ponies stories here! Be it through writing, pictures, skits and comics, I’ll do my best to keep regularly posting about them. This way we can all watch them progress and grow together. <3
And never apologize, I’m so happy to see your excitement! It really makes me motivated to get started!!
When I see your art, I feel. I dunno what I feel, I just feel. Especially that pic of Harvest Tale and Hawthorn in the rain. It feels so real, like something that actually happened somewhere.
That’s so wonderful Anon! Oh wow, I was just playing around with some sort of weird foresty background then I decided to toss in a couple of ponies out of the blue and just fell in love with it. My ultimate goal is to redraw it again sometime but much much much larger so it can be print even!
I’m really SO happy to hear you got those kinds of vibes from a drawing I did. I hope I can continue to practice to keep inspiring such feelings with all my works. My goal as an artist is to try and create new little worlds, just tiny pockets that we can escape into once in a while.
Because I think we all need a little escape sometimes.
Jet Stream: Uh…hey Smitten, I know it’s a little late, but I thought it’d be more useful to give you this towards Autumn-time! Happy belated birthday! Hope you like it… I made it myself…er, well, with a little h-help of course!
Smitten Sweets: Late? Hardly! You have the best timing in the world Jet Stream! It’s just starting to get chilly. It’s the most perfect and practical birthday present I’ve gotten this year~ I really love it! I’m going to wear it all winter long, thank you!!!
What sort of ASKS do you normally enjoy getting? Ones about the cafe, the employed, maybe something along the lines of (mature-minded) anonymous questions?
I really love asks about my various pony characters! Just casually asking about them, their lives, expectations and such. Those are personally my favorite because it gets my brain going and fine lining their details and makes me crazy productive! I’m looking to promote more story work here on this new fresh tumblr instead of just every single day “here is a drink” “here is another drink” “have a drink” which is very… boring and repetitive. ;;
I actually don’t really care for drink questions or questions about the cafe keep… I made Mocha Delight a coffee pony by accident and to let you all in on a little secret, I don’t drink coffee! I personally don’t like coffee what so ever. So it makes it very difficult for me to answer most coffee related drinks when I know literally nothing about it. Anything I do answer is me just researching google.
I’m actually hoping to make Mocha Delight more into a listener kind of pony where ponies and creatures from all over come in for a little drink and relax or have troubles and Mocha will hear them out and give them gentle encouragement. That’s how I really want to play her character in this newer blog.
Me? Really?! Oh goodness, well then I really hope you use that inspiration to make something wonderful! Even if it’s just goofy fun doodles of smiley faces or skulls for yourself, please use it to motivate yourself to draw and make yourself happy!
You know, I really just had to tell you that you have some of the best pony artwork I have seen. Your art is so fluid and yet holds its figure so nicely.. Beautiful <3 and to top it off you seem like such a kind hearted and down to earth individual unlike some other pony artists I've seen which is soooo refreshing :3 I'm so glad I stumbled across your blogs!! <3 Your artwork and posts just brighten up my dash :D
Thank you so much! That is so amazing to hear especially from other artists. I’m always in this mindset where I feel like I’m still just a 14 year old kid who just got her first tablet. It’s hard to imagine I’ve gotten somewhere with my art and now the compliments I would give to other artists are now given to me????? It’s so baffling to me! I’m always caught off guard by this (and almost wondering if people are teasing me haha)!
I’m so excited to know so many people enjoy my work and my blogs. I hope I can keep up with them all! My very minimum goal is to update at least once a week, haha. ;c; I was doing a really poor job of it before my blog was deleted. But I feel completely reinvigorated since this fresh start, I hope it lasts!
Thank you ever so much for all your amazing compliments. I hope my art can continue to make you smile!
Starcrossed is actually me! The artist, she is my ponysona-representative.
Actually I have little quick summaries about all of my ponies on this Cast of Cafe Delights page which you can find on my blog by the ask/submit buttons.
Whenever someone sends in an ask and doesn’t ask about a specific pony, I will be replying with Starcrossed/myself since I don’t know who you’re asking for. So if you do want to ask about a particular pony please mention their names in your ask! It would really help me out!
I know this is a stupid question but why so many ocs I'm just wondering your artwork is really good by the way keep up the good work :)
There is no such thing as a stupid question my friend!
You’re right though, I have a looot of original character ponies… I must admit something to you kool450. I have an addiction. I’m completely addicted to mocking up character designs and seeing where they can go. Sometimes I’ll see a color I think would look nice with another color, or maybe a hair style that might look neat on a character, or maybe I just want a character to wear a specific bowtie constantly.
So I end up sitting down and drawing up all these different ideas, I do scrap most of them and not let them see the light of day. But then there are a few who I look at and go, “I like you. I can work with you.” And it just gets carried away from there!
I simply just ADORE making characters. I really can’t seem to ever help myself. I’m always randomly inspired, Citrus Tang and Poppy? They’re simply ponies I made based off of a Mello Yello soda can and my favorite snack. Then they developed into their very own characters, back stories, families… Just explodes right out of my head sometimes!
I try so hard to not let myself make more characters… But it’s just sooooo much fun. I really love it and I don’t know if I can ever stop. ;;
