Iridescent Sea by Rubilight

I absolutely ADORE this piece. The shadow work on it is top notch and it really makes the piece, even before I had gotten a close up lo...

Shiny Rattata by Rubilight

I really adore this piece, it's simple, but at the same time very telling of a wondrous situation for any Pokemon trainer. That moment ...

Pond Parade 2015: Ren by ScalpelUser
Pond Parade 2015: Ren
For :iconthe-mais-pond:

I'm back!!! For those of you that are a part of the Mais Pond, please read this -> I'm waking up!First off, thank you :iconRubilight: for letting me post this to the group, I'll remove it after a week or two once news has gotten out.
As the title said, I'm wake! At least that's what it feels like. For those who don't know I deal with depression which, let's not beat around the bush, sucks. Overall I can manage it well, but it really did a number to me when it came to managing DeviantArt and drawing. Finally though, the time has changed, the world is warming up, and I'm feeling so much better. It'll still take a bit more time until I'm at full go get'em potential, but I feel confidant enough to return to Deviantart and manage relationships again.
The main reason for this journal is to apologize, I've received so many great comments on the artwork I got out before the depression firmly set in and even so far back as Halloween had beautiful pieces of artwork that included my characters. I've saved each and every comment and submission in my inbox always wanting to show the appreciati


I was going to be really sad if I didn't get myself moving enough to join the parade and I'm super happy I made it : D So here's Ren parading back in, in style wearing a mix of Camellia (big pink ones) and...well, the other ones were only labeled as 'Japanese daisy' in one picture, but it looks more like a clover to me. I'm not sure of the exact name, but I loved the fluffy look of it <3

It feels good to be posting again, thank god it's spring!

I've saved each and every comment and submission in my inbox always wanting to show the appreciation I felt. As time goes on it gets harder to face up to tasks I've set aside for so long, but instead of vanishing completely (I tend to run when a problem has waited too long) I'm writing this journal and cleaning our my inbox in preparation for a new year.

It's not what I would prefer to do, not by far and I feel bad about it. There were so many wonderful pieces of artwork and new members to the Mais Pond that I wanted to greet, but I know in the long run this is what will get me back on my feet. I still want everybody to know just how good seeing your artwork, comments, and birthday wishes made me feel even if I remained clammed up about it. Just thinking about it now gets me warm and fuzzy inside so thank you, it means a lot to me <3

Thank you so very very much, art, comments, simply being understanding, I love you all!!!

I hope you can accept my apologies for being so quiet, I truly missed you all.

And finally, to all the new members I didn't get to say hello to yet. Welcome to the pond!!!

Pond Pound Protectors Go! by ScalpelUser
Pond Pound Protectors Go!
For :iconthe-mais-pond:

Whew! This was meant to just be a little doodle (like the last ones I did) and I loved their poses so much I couldn't help continuing with it XD Used a lot of inspiration from :iconrubilight: here, especially with the shading. I got to see her stream a month or so back and I've been wanting to play around with some of her methods for ages now.

I imagine after growing up in the Pond Pound together these guys would still be thick as thieves.

And yes, there IS a reference there between the title and the tail flags. If anyone gets it you earn a cookie ; )

This picture includes:
Calico Reference Sheet by TheLaarc owned by :iconthelaarc: and :iconrainslick:

Nolem Reference by Mertus owned by :iconmertus: and :iconwaterdrup:
Moin Reference by SmirkCat owned by :iconsmirkcat: and myself.

I promise I'll be replying to my large collection of comments and pictures that included my Mais ASAP. Depression is...*sighs* well, it's a strange beast and for now I'm just happy it's let me draw like it has.

Long Lost Antics by ScalpelUser
Long Lost Antics
For :iconthe-mais-pond:

Long lost because I started this back in OCTOBER! No joke, but between switching jobs and the holiday and some depression on my end (I still have so many beautiful pictures from Halloween to respond to <3) it took until now to finish XD. All the same I'm really happy with it, the initial sketches were a lot of fun to do and I never got frustrated when working with it; I used to always get frustrated with  my art super easy. I think I've finally gotten past that.

I have lots more pictures in mind, but since I was stuck on this one I wanted to finish it up and do the others on a new page. I loved all of the new Maislings this season and to see some get adopted as well was fantastic! Obviously the main features of this one is Fayt's ridiculous tail as well as two of my favorite designs from this past season.

The Troublesome Floyd Floyd the Troublesome by Lady-of-the-who (omg look thumbnails, thank you :iconrubilight:!) who belongs to :iconlady-of-the-who:
And the adorable Piper Piper Reference Sheet by Seffiron (I adore the mix of brown and blue, Fayt does too ; ) ) who belongs to :iconseffiron:

These are two that really caught my eye as standing out this season, but there are so many that I adore and I plan to draw as many as possible so keep an eye out!

I'm excited to be feeling better and missed being fully involved in the Mais Pond <3
