Foggy Minds don't Make it Easy

Hello all you ponyfolk and stray non-pony furry enthusiasts that simply refuse to unwatch me (I commend your spirit!)! I'm in the process of not being sick anymore, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to go very smoothly. Whenever I seem to bounce back I catch a new cold to put the previous one to shame. Quite the predicament!

That said, something has been weighing on my mind a little. I have about ten or so loose requests I'm keeping track of.. several of them may or may not ever end up drawn as they're a little outside of my comfort zone, but regardless I see them as promises. I've always lived up to these sort of things in the past and as such I see it as a fairly serious responsibility. Serious enough to make mention of in a journal post even!

So, my message is that I'm going  to take it slow, but you shouldn't take it as a sign to never ask me to draw you anything ever again. You can, and just because I refuse or never seem to draw it doesn't mean I'm trying to push you back into the distance - however! A lot of requests I get seem to involve subject matter I've never drawn, and (most super-probably) never will. So, I'm a little curious on an emotional level why I would get them at all, but yeah. No diapers, pregnancy, or my favourite characters getting sex-dungeoned or whatnot. Not trying to quietly shame anyone in particular (as honestly I get these things more often than you might think), it's just a reminder that yes, it's true, I'm not into these things!

Another matter that I need to apologize for is that I have a hard time connecting with characters who don't appear in the show. Sometimes I will seem to contradict this by drawing someone's pony, but this is because artistic inspiration is a weird river of sudden impulsive currents and meandering madnesses. There's no real rhyme or reason to it that can easily be transferred via journal, but don't take it personal if I won't draw your character.

tl;dr:

Ask me to draw Sweetie Belle eating a cookie and I'll grant it. Just give me a little time to get over myself and the constant urge my lungs have to leave my body.

Ice pop to me sounds like it should be frozen popcorn. I can do that. :D

lets hope this time you break that cycle of trading in your cold for a newwer one, I'm pretty sure folks will understand you not wanting to draw some of the fetishes you mentioned as well as some of the other extreme ones tho you'll probably still get that random request. they just need to understand that not all artists enjoy drawing them things.

as for drawing sweetie eating  a cookie I had to laugh because the first thing that popped into my head was seeing sweetie with a cookie in her mouth glaring at another pony who was biting down on the same cookie (like two dogs fighting over the same chew toy) glaring back at her trying to get it away from her.

Oh, more Sweetie cookie ideas! Very valuable, thank you!

The thing is I do love drawing things for people, that's why I'm bothering with journal posts like this, I just hope people will know that I'm a fallible, limited creature of the earth who's only worthwhile creations are those that he enjoyed making!

your welcome ^^

and thats understandable if you try doing something you don't like it's going to kill the inspiration (if any was present to begin with) and the motivation to move on will cease and you'd be stuck on it till you force it out and the end result will not be anything as wonderful as if your heart was in it.

Mix fresh grated ginger, freshly squeezed lemon juice & a couple of teaspoons of honey in a cup of hot water. Surefire home remedy is that :3
