Celtic Ponies by PixelKitties Celtic Ponies by PixelKitties
I decided to take a week or two off from comics and pony stuff to focus feeling better, as I've been a bit feeling pretty blue as of late. Hopefully I will be able to come up with a few designs for the new We Love Fine contest, though, so I will post those as they happen.

In the meantime, here's a better look at the pony versions of Sethisto, Jayson Thiessen, and Lauren Faust from my celtic-themed BroNYcon poster.

Hope everyone is having a great week and I will be back to my usual sleepless pace of production soon!

Clan Mac an t-Saoir also salutes you!

I am thinking of making a graphic novel about Cu Chulainn, in the style of 'Dragon Ball', there are lots of similarities between Goku and Setanta. But now I just want to draw Celtic Ponies!

Sorry you've been feeling blue; you seemed so much more purple last time I saw you. :) I hope you feel better quickly.

The ponies are really great: I especially like the pen-spear.

Awww! Thanks so much! I'm in the process of building (well, finishing building) and moving into a new house, so between work, packing, moving, and maintaining the barest threads of a social life I've had precious little time for ponies and plenty of stress. I'll be moved in by the end of October, though, and then hopefully back to a normal weekly schedule of ponies and comics!

Well, in a recent image she drew of herself she is indeed an alicorn, but I made this about two months ago and was working off some other fan art as inspiration. In most of the pictures I could find, folks seemed to think she would make a good pegasus, so I followed suit!

~Yay~

I love the way you do reflect everypony personality, and again, even tough simple like in your double brohoof pic, you do a marvelous job giving each pony a facial expression that everyone can decipher. Lauren is wearing skates? Joy! Always charging forward, makes sense, Seth, the one to keep the chronicle of events, and Jason, shaping the world with pen and direction, amazing! I definitely would like to commission you to ponify myself!

And so no other comment is needed, but to hope for you to be a lot better soon, watch some great movies, I insist, and drink some fine brews, sleep and have dreams of joy, walk and feel the world around you. You did told me once that maybe you weren't the best artist out there, the race for the best is so dam hard, but instead you told me that wanted to be the nicest... well, by my book you are! Keep your chin up, we who like you and your art well be ready to welcome you back with open arms

My friend, you are making me feel like a million bits, here! Thank you so much! I worked very hard on this image and I'm truly touched that you think so highly of the detail I put into the ponies and my impressions of Lauren, Jayson, and Seth!

As for the blues, It's mostly due to stress lately. I'm moving into a new house that I've also had refurbished from bare studs. That's fun, because it meant I could design it from the ground up, but it's also been a bit all-consuming. Moving, building, packing, working...all of it has led to very little time for ponies. It makes me feel strangely bad that I don't have time or energy to get a comic done or help people with commissions or requests. I suppose I want to do my best for everypony, but there's very little extra me to spread around lately!

Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be moved in and things will start settling a bit! That will mean less stress and more time for ponies and other fun stuff!

Then, my dear, do rest! and when you feel ready to get back on the saddle do it! Everyone needs a break from time to time. Personally I don't want you burning out and feeling worst that before, so do relax, have some fine bear (Have a Negra Modelo, is good) eat some nice foods and enjoy yourself.

And when you come back I do wanna talk business about a commission :3

Yes, Dragon age FTW here. Though in all honesty, I've always been more a Baldur's gate aficionado. Dragon age's good though.

Baldur's Gate is a bit before my time, not so-much in terms of age, but simply that I didn't have a PC to play it on during the hayday. I've since played several of the Baldur's Gate console versions, but I'm sure they're not the same!

Garnot Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Dragon age is a love letter to Baldur's gate 1 and 2. The console versions were nothing compared to the computer version, which pretty much revolutionized western RPGs. These games were eventually followed up by the masterpiece known as "Planescape: torment" a game of such sheer brilliance, many have suggested it be placed in a space pod and lunched into space as ultimate proof of mankind's brilliance when it comes to storytelling.

What!? No comics from PixelKitties until soon!? I can't wait that long! We need your awesomeness before soon!

So we have Faust wearing roller skates, Thiessen wearing what appear to be Gallifreyan symbols, and Sethisto dressed as an Irish Trixie. Plus they all look like they are members of the scariest, most dangerous group on the planet! ...hippies!

You ain't alone; I've been fairly ill as well (and am already getting better).

Now that I see her without that humongous kaleidoscopic whirlwind, it's quite clear that a pony on roller skates is the most adorable thing ever (pending whatever I see ponies doing within the next few minutes).

Also, this reminds me: I need a heart with Trixie in it printed somewhere on one of my earthly possessions. Computer, bedsheets, skin, anything.

When I first saw the poster I utterly squeeeed because I used to be a big D&D geek and still have some fondness for it. So seeing my current obsession wrapped up with one of my adolescent loves had a special appeal. It also brought me back to drawing and desing D&D characters. It's hard to pick a favourite among the designs, but I suppose that I like Earth-pony Jayson's design the most due to the blues (my second favourite colour next to read, though quickly moving up due to a certain pegasus...) and celtic knot-work motif you worked into the armour. That and the stunned, awkward expression on his face reminds me of well...me.

"...as I've been a bit feeling pretty blue as of late."

Awwww, well take care of yourself. I do hope you feel better soon and that it's not due to work-related issues. :( (Hence my worry over the "sleepless pace of production" part.)

Awwww, thank you so much! I've been a D&D nerd my entire life! I begged my mom for my first boxed set when I was five or six...though I had no actual idea how to play it!

When the BroNYcon folks told me they wanted a celtic mythology theme, I immediately thought of a party of celt adventurers heading into Season Two of Friendship is Magic! I'm glad you enjoyed it and picked up on the Dungeons and Dragons vibe as well!

I must admit, working on pony stuff has certainly taken it's toll! Each comic takes several days (or rather, nights!) to complete and I've also been pretty swamped with work and moving into a new house! The stress level has been high, my desire to make lots of cool pony stuff has been there, but my free time has been pretty lacking!

By the end of October I will be moved in and have a neat new pinkie-pie inspired home office to work out of, so I expect to be back to working at breakneck speed again very soon!
