Pinkie Pie's badroom eyes by Pete-Bagheera
Pinkie Pie's badroom eyes

Pinkie Pie … after  a night on the town. Still on for some fun, and apparently, whoever she is looking at thought so too.

Sequel of

Done January 2016. Sketched during a long plenary session at a not-so-interesting symposium, last year. Rest is done on the PC. Me drawing this should not be interpreted as me encouraging this kind of thing.

Pinkie on the town by Pete-Bagheera
Pinkie on the town

Pinkie Pie in her late teens (or early twenties, whichever is the legal drinking age where she lives). And apparently she is enjoying a night on the town, and is on the prowl tonight. All in the name of fun, off course.

You’re looking at her through a kind of tunnel vision that can only (legally) be caused by alcohol. Well, are ya up to some of that… fun?



I used to go out clubbing. I also used to drink a lot. Well, not often, but when I did, I drank until I was at least slightly drunk. Never totally sh**-faced, though. Could not afford that with my diabetes. I needed to have the presence of mind to eat a significant meal (and preferably drink a lot of water) before I crash into my bed after a night on the town, or I’m going to have low sugars while passed out.

I don’t do it anymore mainly because of the risk to my health. (Getting sick from fatigue+alcohol can cause pneumonia relatively easily with me) But I still do miss it from time to time.

Rarity On Ice by Pete-Bagheera
Rarity On Ice
Rarity on Ice! (and Pete who is apparently distracted)

So in recent months I have been drawing a lot of pony stuff, for my daughter to color. (I might post the version she colored later for proof. Kinda cool she has the patience to actually ink my sketch it before she colors it... at age 6!) Some of those drawings turn out nice enough to take a picture with the cell phone (i don't own a working scanner atm.) and finish it digitally. I might post a few more of those in the future.

This one I drew last night and digitally colored it today. Not too much work, without fur to give texture. We've been taking the Little One skating, hence the scene. :heart:

Done January 2016. If you perhaps think drawing looks familiar, then you might be right. I re-used the background from this old thing: . Also, as you might guess, while I like the EqG drawing styles of the character faces, I do not like their skin tones.
Agent Ledoux by Pete-Bagheera

This is Agent Ledoux

Okay... My first paid commission, and I am too ashamed to say how long it took me to actually say it :) I had plenty of reasons for it, but I won't bore you with those.

Commission for Archeus Ledoux on FA (archeus68)

Done January 2016. Ledoux is © the commissioner, art is © me
Wip2 by Pete-Bagheera
Second WIP of Twilight's library tree. Plus a small Sparkle :heart:

We have decided that this will be the prototype, since we are not quite satisfied (mainly) by the choice of colors. We will make another one to sell, using everything we learned from making this one.

So our Little One can have this one... as she already likes it a lot! =D

WIP 1 is here:

And like I said, we're hoping to sell these, so any advice on marketing is welcome! ^_^

Sent this to Hasbro. I seem to do this a lot, recently.

Just adding one to the pressure.

Dear Sirs

It has come to my attention that a lot of MLP content, mainly on YouTube is being taken down recently.

I must ask you to reconsider your recent policy on this, not only for the benefit of the MLP fandom, but also for your own benefit!

YouTube videos are an essential part of the fandom. Consider that if MLP related videos are taken down too often, people will stop making them. Many hours of work generally go into each video, and if people risk having them deleted, they will stop bother to make them. The fandom will become a lot less active, less lively, and people (makers and watchers) will forget MLP and move on with other ways of spending their free time. Especially in the off-season.

A lot of bronies are people with jobs and money to spend on collectables. When they lose interest in MLP, that will seriously hurt your merchandise sales figures.

Also consider this. You cannot stop people from seeing your episodes for free. BitTorrent is simply too accessible. You can't stop it, or 20th Century, Paramount, Disney or any of the other big names of the film industry would have done it by now. All you can do stop is the non-profit MLP-fun sharing community on YouTube. And that would be shooting your own foot.

It is the momentum of all the content uploaded on YouTube (and elsewhere) every week that keep the fandom alive and attractive to be a member of and to participate in in the off season and even lets it grow. Grow in the off-season! How many cartoons have that? I myself joined in the fandom in the off season, just after Season 2 ended. If you take the momentum out of the fandom on YouTube, your fandom will shrink, and ultimately you risk losing everything you have built up in recent years.

MLP means the world to me right now. It is helping me though a tough time in my life where I see the worst side of humanity gnawing away at my fiancee and I live 11,000 km away and can't do a thing to help her. I need the non-cynical FUN! But it is the fandom however, mainly on YouTube, that helped me though the off season. I would have sought my distractions elsewhere without it, and might not even have remembered to come back for season 3.
There are so many Bronies with similar stories. MLP was the seed of something great that makes the world a better place for so many people, and allowing YouTube content to flourish was the water that made the seed grow. Don't kill it now, nourish it.

Please reconsider
