Egg on my face-

I am alive I do swear!  I hate playing this game of no months with content.  Keep an eye out I got some stuff planned I just need to batten down the hatches and get to it.  No I'm not blowing smoke up your ovens!  I might bake a cake though.

The news you guys need to hear isn't here just yet but I do have some updates for those interested:

TrotCon and BronyCon are things that are happening!  I got the emails and will be there assuming hell or highwater doesn't get in my way.  Proper announcements will come when I have more details sorted out.
Everfree Northwest is currently in waitlist land.  Hopefully I'll be able to exit that land and enter the promised halls of vendoring!  I also really wanted to see Seattle again and the coast.  You guys have some nice landscapes up there that we in Illinois simply lack :(.
-As an aside:  BronyCon may see my whole family clan there.  I'm excited!

I have a dying laptop!  The thing is now 6 years old, approaching 7 by the end of this year, and it simply cannot take much more.  Constant crashes, slow CPU, out of date drivers, ect ect.  I would love to replace it by the end of the year with something that would let me become mobile once more.  I'd also like a new car too but everything wants all this money I don't have.

Why did Transformers Prime have to end after 3 seasons and a movie?

So here we are, another year, another several month hiatus until I inevitably start posting again.  Same old same old you guys know the drill.

The good stuff first!

-The fall treated me well, dunno about you guys, but in spite of being down in the dumps about drawing, I survived and stuff.  This year feels different so no telling what it may bring!

-I'm drawing again!  I have brought myself back from the brink of extinction and slowly but surely am working on new things.  Expect them!  But not in a timely fashion as some of these are fat and take a long time.

-I got a new drawing program!  It's called Clip Studio Paint Pro.  There was a sale and I snagged it for $15.  It has a lot of functionality that SAI doesn't have (Like drawing shapes, text, bigger brushes, perspective lines, grids, ect ect ect).  I highly suggest looking into it if you're in the venue for a new drawing program.  Also it is 64-bit so no 32-bit limitations!  I am more than willing to answer any questions in the comments regarding the program!

-I didn't gain weight over Christmas!  Yeahhhhhhh!

The bad stuff next!

-Well I didn't draw much of anything the last 4 silly months.  I kinda did but some of those things can't be shown yet until I finish my storywriting.  None of you really care to hear about a giant leviathan fish lady yet right?  ... Right?

-I'm conceding on trying to write new pony stuff.  I simply have too much and not enough time to convince myself that I can eventually get around to them.
 A-I will be summarizing and dramatizing a few of the stories here in journal form over the next few weeks/months/whenever I find time to do it so that people can get the full idea of where each story was going to go.  I might draw new things for them but the reality is that I simply cannot make them into fullblown comics like I wanted.  So much to do and I am simply too slow of an artist!

-That's literally all of the bad stuff.  It was a pretty boring Fall.  I played a lot of WoW when Orcs of Draenorc came out and I killed a lot of orcs with my blade I'm pretty sure that took the name, "Orcrist" from that Thorim fellow.  He got pretty mad and holed himself up in a mountain.  What a jerk.

Conventions again?

-I will be returning to the same conventions as I was at last year pending invites!  These include EverfreeNorthwest, BronyCon, Trotcon, and the Crystal Fair in STL!  I got some good ideas coming for new images and hopefully will get them into the woodworks soon.  Valve and I had a conference recently on the definition of the word, "soon".  Neither of us really understood what happened in that conference but I got to talk with Valve which was great.

Drew this while at STL Crystal Fair.  Thanks to everyone who came out to see me/buy things/enjoy the con!
And their judgement was harsh.

It happened. by Dreatos

Goodnight 3DS.  May you smash again in some other form some day.

Crystal Fair in St. Louis next weekend!  I guess I won't have my 3DS to nab everyone's streetpass smash data :(.

Edit:  System is bricked.  Completely unusable until a repair is attempted.
What could it be? by Dreatos
I'm working on some new things.  Full details when the first set are done!

In other news!

-The NMM card revision 2 is experiencing problems in construction.  I think I have it figured out but I'm still working on the solution.  An update will happen when I solve this.

-Some are still waiting on posters to be delivered!  I apologize and am working on getting them out ASAP!  I will send notes when they are shipped.

St. Louis Crystal Fair is back again for 2014!
You can expect to find me there with some of my new products as well as all the posters I brought to BronyCon 2014!  Get your excite engines started!  I will post a journal in the future detailing what all I'm bringing.

(Cardback is currently still WIP.  I want the bordersize to match front and back.)

Hey guys!  After some experimentation the 2nd edition of the NMM CCG parody card is almost ready!  This is a journal to hype it up while I figure out the best way to construct the new cards.  These are printed on a special metallic paper to give the card a very special shine!

These will be available for $15 a piece (Shipping included for continental United States) and I will do my best to provide one of these:… to both protect the purchase and make it look nicer when you get it.

Those who own the original 16 cards, yours are now unofficially dubbed 1st editions and are highly valued by people.  I don't know who these people are.

A journal will be posted in the near future for ordering.


(I don't play the official CCG so I don't know if this card would work.  The way I figure is both players are 'stunned' by Nightmare Moon's beauty which is why they cannot take any action.  It's just for fun!)

I shaved my face when I got home I swear.

Also props to Pirate Dash for sharing a booth with me!
Hey guys!
BronyCon was a blast.  You guys came out in force and really showed your support.  Many prints were bought, many hands shook, and hopefully many good feelings were sent back home.

I still have leftover prints that I don't wish to hold onto!


Cybertronian Equestrian by Dreatos

I still have FIVE of these left!  They are still the special metallic paper with a slight holographic shine.  I will be printing no more of these on metallic paper ever again.

For those interested I am selling them at $30 a piece, this includes shipping.
If you are outside the US but wish for one please leave a comment and I will discuss it with you.
They are FIRST COME FIRST SERVE via comments below.  Leave a comment stating, "I wish to buy this" or similar and if you're among the five, I will open a note with you and we will negotiate the deal.

A future journal will detail the Nightmare Moon custom CCG card.  Please keep an eye out for it.


8/11/14 update: 
Currently waiting on a considerable quantity of tubes to deliver to my house before I can start to ship out.  Once those arrive, I will offer the other designs for sale to those interested!  Prices will be posted in the respective journals.
I'll post a new journal with relevant information regarding what this journal was about soon.

It was about this:

They are sold out at BronyCon 2014 at the moment.  I'll post info in the new journal for those still interested in acquiring one.
Hey guys!  I wanted to wait to do this until the latest drawing was done.  This is the BronyCon 14' print lineup!  Find all this at Booth 814 with me and Pirate Dash!

All designs are now available in 11 x 17.  Very select will be available in 13 x 19 due to leftovers from Everfree Northwest.

Edit:  After BronyCon is over, some of these designs will go into legacy mode meaning I won't make new prints of them.  I will note which ones after BronyCon is done and I see my sale numbers.

It thought it ran out of ink and panicked.
I saved the drawing though and this is now highly valued at a very expensive price.

Official BronyCon journal coming soon!
As soon as I finish this metal print.

Have a preview!
.What Could It Beeee---In the parallel dimensionnn by Dreatos

Looking forward to this convention WITH INCREDIBLE HYPE.
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported me and my sister.  We had a stellar time and hope we made people happy.

The best part about it all though was I had THIS waiting for me upon arriving in my room (Per my request when I booked my room).

Which one of you did it?  Fess up because it's -AMAZING- and I love it.  Never imagined such a request to be completed.  Hope to see you all again next year!
I want all of you to write fantastical things and try to make me laugh/impress me so that I can feature your comment for no real reason aside from getting internet popular from other people.

*Sits upon a Discord styled throne*

I chose a no. 1 but I still am a kind and just mortal that I will choose a no. 2.
My cyan ink is forever empty.

Hey guys!  Con season is upon us, I'm working diligently to get -something- done besides printing out my stuff.  I recently attended the Toyman Show in St. Louis as a guest artist and made a few dollars (Thanks go out to everyone who supported me!  I can't really say how much that amount helped but it REALLY did).

An issue was brought to my attention!  I have been preferring using 13 x 19 sized prints (Super B sized) ever since BronyCon last year.  I have this super fancy printer that can print that size and the prints (in my humble opinion) are amazing in quality.

The issue was that 13 x 19 was just a bit too big and there wasn't as conventional means to transport the next size up.  Only a couple people brought that up, but it lost me a couple of good sales.

SO MY QUESTION TO EVERYONE OUT THERE WHO LOVES TO BUY PRINTS (and hopefully plans on visiting me at one of the cons I'm visiting this year to support me :>)

What is your opinion towards the larger 13 x 19 versus the standard(ish?) 11 x 17?

I would be able to switch over to 11 x 17 easily enough, but I would have to go ahead and re-invest myself before TrotCon hits in less than a month from now.  The financial hit won't hurt too much but getting the paper shipped to me so I can get everything printed is a slight issue this close to con season.
