Spring Ponies by Honeykitten Spring Ponies by Honeykitten
Lo and behold, my first submitted picture of the year! I hope you are all able to recover from the shock, make sure to put your head between your legs if you feel dizzy.

Nothing remarkable, just a good ol' plain somewhat boring picture but! the important thing is that I actually enjoyed drawing and colouring it, at that is something I haven't felt in a long time. So, in the end, I'd say this is a success :D Wether this mean I'm completely back from my hiatus or not remains to be seen...
Either way, this is a little treat for those of you who have actually missed my ponies!

As for the picture, well it's just a small dedication to my favourite time of the year: Spring! :butterfly: And the ponies, who are supposed to be sisters, are based on two closely related spring flowers: so there's Pingstlilja/White narcissus to the left and Påsklilja/Daffodil to the right (that was hopefully obvious though).

All right, that is that, take care now all of you! :heart:

Yeah, I have been away for a little while :), but Im back!! :D. I have been great but quite busy so DA was just not on my mind. But since I did a lot of crafts and other art (having a weekly craft night with a few gals, helps :P), I thought I should come back and post it all.

You are very welcome. I love your ponies - they are wonderful!.

I always like how you do the hooves and legs. <3 Pretty colors.. The hair must be somewhat confusing to do xD

Why thank you so much, dearie! I prefer to make the legs slender and the hooves a bit visible at least :giggle:
The hair (especially the pegasus) was a pain to colour indeed but I think it turned out all right in the end :giggle:

How's everything with you then? :D

Why thank you so much, dearie! That was really kind of you to say, it's highly appreciated :glomp:
Yes, alot of people seem to like the fact that I try to draw them in the more original style mixed with my own :XD: I'm happy to hear that you like my ponies too! :aww:

Nonsense, besides your ponies look great already, you have your own unique pony drawing style :D

Why thank you so much, I am so happy to hear that you think so! :D But that's odd that it didn't show sooner. Ah well, it's probably due to some bug in the system or something :bug:

It's getting better, might be due to the fact that spring has finally arrived and with that sunshine and more daylight hours :giggle:

I hope you are doing well too, what have you been up to lately? :)

maybe there's no bug in the system. maybe i'm just out of it! hah! i usually check my deviantart once a week. maybe i missed it once or something. i dunno. yay for spring! and lately i've just been doing my dayjob and working on two new poni books on the weekends. i would like to write another book about Machoponi called "Staying alive and Hoof-Loose" or something like that, which will kinda be a play on the "Staying Alive" dance movie with Machoponi in the Travolta role. At least that's my idea. I have no cover for that one yet. *wink*... but before that, I'd like to write an Alice in Wonderland reimagining type story called "malice in wonderland". So yeah, I've been focusing on my writing basically and hope to have the new poni books out soon. :D One of em features Dust. Well, take care. Always enjoy your work.

Aha! Yes, that could definitely be the case too! Nevermind though, the important thing is that you saw it eventually :D

Oh wow, those books sound really good, I love the title "Staying alive and Hoof-loose", Machoponie in the Travolta role would be so awesome XD No cover you say, well maybe that could be taken care of at some point when the books are getting written ;) It would be really nice to see what happens to them next! Best of luck with the writing :iconcheerplz:

As are you, my dearest sweet buddy~!! :icontardhugplz:

I know it appears very cute, but I am still suprised over why males are so into it. There is nothing wrong with boys liking such a thing, but I am still in wonderment, ya know?? :shrug:

Maybe a few years down the road when the hype is over, I may consider giving it a watch~! :aww:

:iconhoneykitten:
Honeykitten Featured By Owner May 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
:iconhugfiveplz:

I yet have to figure out why so many males are so into it too. But, on the other hand, now that I think about it some more, the series has a rather broad repertoire with lots of slapstick comedy and such. So to some extent I can understand why it may appeal to other people as well, but I can't put my finger on what, exactly, it is that make guys like it so much :lol: Hey, maybe men are softer than we think ;)

Give it a watch at some point, I have to admit that it is worth it :aww:

hey sweetie, with all this "rebirth" of the ponies you should be working on them the most! and teach the newbies how GOOd ponies are drawn. Wheren't you asked for them yet? gotta get back to selling so I can buy some commissions myself :meow:

Thank you so much, dearie! :D

Oh my, you really are giving my too much credit, my ponies are not that good :icondragonshy2: But you are right, people have asked me about how a draw my ponies before, the problem is that I don't think I'll be able to explain my mode of operation :lol: At least not in a way so someone else will get it. Either way, drawing some more ponies is something I'll hopefully be able to do in the nearest future :giggle:

Selling sounds like a good idea, you shouldn't have too much problem with that since your pictures are awesome ;)

As soon as I get some $$$ from my own commissions, I'll comish you something "ponysh" (yeah.. I'm inventing english words again, screw you Margaret Thatcher!), I like the new ponies, they are funny and.. OH! did you happened to see THIS?-> [link]

"Ponyish" haha, good word :XD: Ohh, so you're interesting in getting something "ponyish" from me, what an honour :giggle: I am sure we'll manage to come to an agreement :iconhugfiveplz:

I agree, the new FiM ponies are really funny (even though I'll always love the original series better!). But oh my godness, those clips you linked...they are so messed up and damned funny at the same time, some people really have a twisted sense of humour :rofl: They remind me a little bit of that insane show "Ren and Stimpy", now that one is really scary!

lol totally.. it's all Ren and Stimpy style, I loved it. =D I hope they make more.
Meanwhile today I saw another episode of the new ponies expecting to see something about that "sexual pressure" between Applejack and Rainbowndash everybody talks about but didn't see any... and well, it was amusing.

Let's see about the drawings when I get back from Mexico, I'll open for some commissions right after I finish the doujinshi. (which btw its almost done, shame I couldn't have it before I go)
