Wild strawberries by Honeykitten Wild strawberries by Honeykitten
The more preferred title is "Smultronstället" but since dA doesn't allow me to use words containing å, ä, ö I had to settle with this (yes, I got the idea for the title from Ingmar Bergman's movie "Smultronstället/Wild strawberries" :giggle: ).

This is a long overdue gift for my dear friend :iconladyofthekeys: which has now become a christmas gift instead of a birthday gift :slow: These two are her characters Ling together with her pony friend Pinyin (which means peony), she is the one who came up with their designs so I'll take no credit for that.
I hope you like the picture, Milly and merry christmas :hug:

Considering how long I've been working on this picture (much longer than I had anticipated) one would have thought the outcome would have been much more spectacular but what the hey =P I should have worked some more on the background I know but I just wanted to be done with it :lol:

Ah well, I hope all of you are doing all right, take care now :iconcocoloveplz:

Det som jag gillar mer än någonsin hos dina teckningar, är att trots nya MLP stilar, så har du fortsatt hålla dig till Old-school stilen och det gör ju dina vackra teckningar mer intressanta, med tanke på att MLP-FIM har blivit typ lika hysterisk som Homestuck eller flera av de anime serier. xDDD :+fav:

Tack så jättemycket, gumman! Du anar inte hur glad den kommentaren gjorde mig :hug: Jag tänkte faktiskt på detta precis: visserligen har fler människor börjat rita My Little Pony men, som du säger, så är det bara en massa FiM som folk ritar och det har börjat bli liiiiite väl mycket av det. Jag håller med dig: det har blivit en hysteri omkring den stilen, vilket är en anledning till att jag håller mig till old-school-stilen :giggle: Tusen tack än en gång, vad skönt att folk håller med mig! :tighthug:

Ja och old-school stilen är ju på ett och annat mer realitisk, för den nya är väldigt cartoonaktigt för dem som är väldigt petiga med anatomi, även om jag själv gillar galna propotioner. Dock är det fandomen som, är så jävla jobbig, framför allt det är killar och vuxna män som också tittar på MLP-FiM, fast den är egentligen anpassat för tjejer. xDDD

Jag håller med dig fullständigt! Den gamla stilen är mer realistisk och jag gillar fortfarande den mer än den här nya, cartoonaktiga, stilen (inget ont om den men jag gillar den andra bättre helt enkelt :D ). Som du säger så har den nya en hel del galna proportioner, jag lyckas inte riktigt vänja mig vid de där stora ögonen :lol:
Håller med, fandomen runt den har, som vanligt, spårat ut. Men jag kan i och för sig förstå att fler killar gillar den här showen för den tycks vara mer anpassad för både killar och tjejer :giggle:

Thank you so much, honey, you really are way too kind! :hug: Yeah, those strawberries sure took their sweet time to draw (which is way they look like they do since I got tired of it @_@).
Anyways, as always you are being way too kind, I really appreciate your kind words! :iconcocoloveplz:

Have yourself a very merry christmas now, all right? :glomp:

Julklapps race vill jag egentligen helst vara utan! Men riktigt peppad nu. Glögg, julmust och knäck hjälper en att komma i stämning. Men jag är så trött på mörkret XDD Haha... Är äntligen klar med min utbildning på måndag!!! Har vart en jobbigt termin för mig, men magkatarren har lugnat sig :3
Hur är det för dig då? :3 Mår du bra?

Vad härligt och höra att du inte låter julstressen förstöra för dig! :iconhugfiveplz:

Jo tack, det här eviga mörkret och regnandet och blåsandet har verkligen börjat att gå en på nerverna. Lite snö nu hade sannerligen piggat upp men det blir nog inte mycket med det :hmm:
Nähä, vad kul, nu har du lite julledighet att se fram emot, vad skönt! Är du helt klar eller det är är bara terminen som (äntligen) är över? :)
Usch din lilla stackare, lider du också av magkatarr, jo tack det vet jag hur det känns: min har varit riktigt hemsk de senaste veckorna men nu har den börjat lugna sig *pepparpeppar* Vi får försöka stressa mindre tror jag :lol: Men annars så är det väl jämna plågor: jag vet inte om jag är på väg att bli sjuk eller ej men jag fryser något fruktansvärt (trots att jag är rejält påpälsad) och har ont i kroppen :P Men förutom det så är det lugnt :lol:

Ja, det kanske är ett löfte vi ska ha på nyår? ;) Se till att stressa mindre hehe... Så magkatarren kan lugna sig XD Usch. Jag kunde vakna mitt i natten o springa till toan för att spy... Men tar gaviscon nu innan jag lägger mig och det funkar :3
Är du inte glad för all slask nu då? XD Det är det hos mig iaf.... XD

Ja, någon bacilusk måste det ha varit i alla fall, men det blev faktiskt inte värre än så: jag hade värk i kroppen och var matt och trött i ett par dagar sedan var det över igen. Märkligt :hmm:
Det tycker jag låter som ett alldeles utmärkt nyårslöfte! (synd bara att det är svårt att inte stressa så mycket :lol: ). Usch, fy fasen så illa har aldrig min varit: jätteont i magen har jag och en rejäl halsbränna men jag har, än så länge, inte behövt spy *pepparpeppar* Vad skönt att du har hittat en medicin som hjälper i alla fall :hug:

Ha, vi har inte ens haft tillräckligt med snö för att kunna få slask! :rofl:

Ha en underbar jul nu, kära du, kram på daj! :tighthug::heart:

CHristmas is coming along fairly well.:aww: it's a little frantic because I have a few people left on the list and I'm still not sure what to get them, and I'm wanting to draw every one pictures here on DA, but that's just not going to happen.:( I have made you a christmas card, and hope it reaches you in time for Christmas, but it might not.^^; I only now have the time to mail it out and it might be too late, but I hope you do like it when you get it!:blushes:

THANK YOU SO MUCH :iconiloveyouplz:

I'm in absolute awe with the danylion blossoms and the strawberry blossoms and the strawberries.
The glee on Ling's face is so delightful and PinYin looks amazing just adore her glossy hair :aww:

From the thumbnail it looks as though PinYin is "drawing" a butterfly but i now know that is threading strawberries.

So yea THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU

Awh, you are more than welcome, dearie, I sure hope that you like it! :tighthug::heart: Sorry about the colouring, I'm still trying to get the hang of this colouring technique :P But hopefully it didn't turn out to awful :giggle:
Yes, she is threading starwberries. That is the best way to eat them but it is such a pain to sit there and thread each tiny berry on a straw, so I figured it was a neat idea to let PinYin use her magic to get it done :XD:

Once again, you are more than welcome, Milly and I'm really sorry for the long wait (I hope you think it was worth it)! :heart:

Ofcourse i like it more than like its love :heart:
It's so adorable that u gave Ling a little flatish type nose cos of her asian ethnic b/g :P
To tell you the truth i wasn't so keen on it at 1st but then it would have thrown her gleeful expression out of joint and i have already tormented you enough when it came to that Zinser pic :giggle:

So no need to worry about it dearie - i absolutely love it 110% :aww:

lol..i haven't even noticed that u have changed a colouring technique - its beautiful and the more you do it the better and easier it will come :aww:

i think i vaguely remember threading strawberries =p
i do recall picking blueberries in our backyard when they were in season and my Mormor always wanted to know when they were ready to be picked so she could come over and pick them to make homemade blueberry jam :9

So yea - thany Sweetie for making such a HUGE effort to bring smiles on all your friends' face :heart: :heart: :heart:

I'm very happy to hear that you do, thank you once again :tighthug:
Yeah, I thought that was fitting to draw the nose like that, I hope you have managed to get used to the nose though by now :lol:

Well, the colouring technique is different, I'm try to give the picture more of a painted feeling but I haven't gotten the hang of it quite yet :slow: But as you say, the more I do it the better and easier it'll, hopefully, become :giggle:

Mmm...blueberry jam, it is so tastie :iconyummyplz: I'm telling you, threading wild strawberries and a straw is the best way to eat them!

It's the least I can do, dearie, it is no more than you deserve after all! :iconsweethugplz:

Ling will grow out of it =p

Did u have any "ugly" year periods in your childhood mine was between 8- 11 ^^;

Oh yes i can see a more painted quality now that you have pointed it out :icondragonnod1:

The things we do just so we can eat them the most tastiest way =p

I'm going to change "SpitFire" to "Molten" instead that way i won't get trolled over by the MLP hardcores cos there is a character already called "Spit Fire" - and we don't want any of that :no:

Thanks again Sweetie-pie :heart:

Ha, I don't think I ever got out of mine :lol: Well, I suppose it was the worst when I was 13-15 but then again at that point one always thought one looked really awful (either way, my haircut was a disaster!) :P

Oh yes, you are right, there's already a pony named Spitfire! Yeah, better go for Molten instead otherwise you are bound to be trolled over by those MLP hardcores, and we definitely don't want that :no:

Thankfully hair grows out =p

Oh don't say that - your beautiful with your sunny smile :aww:
I've had braces but thankfully i timed it right cos ppl were abit more mature then. I was 16 and had them for 2yrs and 1 month so when i graduated from High School i had them for my formal :P

Yep deffo name change to Molten i think it will suit cos the symbol is going to be little volcano =p He's going to be a pink boy :D And then there's the older sister Crescent - she's going to be pink too =p

I know right? What is it with does bad hair cuts, why do you always manage to do at least one really awful hair cut? Seriously, I could have been one of The Beatles with that hair cut I had :lol: (yes, it's that bad...).

Thank you dearie, so are you! :hug: Ugh braces, I am utterly grateful that I never had to have any but they have to be considered to be some kind of necessary evil: the end result will be worth it! I mean, just look at that sunny and pretty smile you have now! :D

Oooh, a volcano you say, well then Molten will be a perfect name for him! :la: And pink even, that I like even more (pink is the new black after all!). I am really looking forward to see the end result of these two, they are bound to be awesome for sure :hug:
