Which should be the evil name of Queen Chrysalis? Because...  Wait, no spoilers.  And if you don't read my books then, I dunno.  Just answer the question I guess, which one do you like better?  And I might go with whatever you guys decide.  (I'm kinda hooked on Bloodshrike right now but I'll leave it to you.

This is my best work in progress yet.  I think I've got a technique down for me that works with these things too.  Overall, I'm happy about how this turned out.  I frikin love it.

Art Trade - Southern Petal the Botanical Goddess
Easily one of my absolute best pieces yet.  And you won't believe how much fun I had painting this.  Had a bit of trouble with the sun rays, but it was fun anyway.  The tail, ho the tail.  Even though it was a bit of a booger it was fun.  I've never had the chance to do anything like it.  The closest thing to it is a dragon's tail which I'm used to doing.  It's just this one was a maze of intricate and twisted braids.  It was definitely a welcome challenge.  I also hadn't gotten to many landscape pieces, so the trees were a bit of a welcome challenge as well.  Had to use a custom brush that I made for the leaves and stuff but it was fun anyway.  The grass was a little hard because I haven't gotten a technique down for it yet but it was awesome. 

Felifu was the one who asked me to do this and I gladly accepted the challenge.  Considering what I did with Dark123321's request I thought I could easily do awesome stuff, so I did.  And this is the result. 

Anyway, a little info about Southern Petal, she's a botanist, or a scientist who grows and studies exotic plants.  So you can imagine her love for flora and fauna alike.  Almost like Fluttershy.  She's also a sucker for gold things, like the necklace I gave her and the gold trim on the sleeves and v-neck of her toga. 

That's all I really knew about Petal, and I think that she's one unique pony.  One I had a blast to play around with.  Thanks for the awesome time I had Felicia!!  :)

Petal had just come back from her shopping in Ponyville and she was dog tired.  She dropped her groceries on her table and just collapsed on her couch.  Today hadn't been the best, she'd run into a few grumpy ponies and had to deal with their problems like she was their mother or something.  She looked out her window at her biodrome, thinking of her beloved plants.  She yearned to see them, for them to warm her heart with calmness and love.  She got off her couch and went out her door, her delicate gold-trimmed toga flowing in the breeze behind her like silver glass feathers.  She entered her biodrome, closing the door behind her.  Instantly she felt calmed and welcome.  Like she'd returned from a long journey to be welcomed by family. 

She spied her favorite plant right under some Maple-Apple tree hybrids, one she called a Hydriscus Flower.  The contrasting orange and blue blooms shouted out from the ground like a cute little filly wanting attention.  Petal smiled and went to lay down right next to it.  She brought a watering can with her to water it, and she started singing a little tune to it in her loving, motherly voice.  She smiled as she hummed, and kindly stroked the petals.  Just then, she heard birds flapping all around her, grabbing little strands of her mane and tail in their delicate beaks.  They were going around each other, braiding it. 

Petal brought a hoof to her face, and she blushed. 

Time taken: a few weeks, given that I had work and school to worry about.
Music: enchanting and beautiful music.
Tools: Wacom Create, PS CS6

I have lately been getting asked a lot to do requests and/or trades, so I'm thinking about laying down some ground rules here. 

1. I'm a n00b and still trying to figure out what a trade truly is so possible explanation plz?

2. depending on what you want me to do I will only do these:  NO ADULT STUFF.  Like overexposed skin (tiny bikinis, nudity, etc.  [I have standards and expect to uphold them, I'm Mormon so yeah.])  I will however do some star wars levels of injuries, ponies, dragons with riders in armor or capes and stuff, the aforementioned adult stuff applies here!  Jedi, phoenixes, and most other creatures of mythical origin. 

3. Not planning on doing commissions anytime soon because, well, I gotta get better at this and school has started for me so yeah.

4. Depending on my homework and extra time I will either take a really long time or be there near the same day so expect to be delayed should you ask me at a not so great time.

Basic ground rules for trades and requests.  That's basically it, and just don't be afraid to ask me.  I can confirm whether I can do it or not.  :)

Nuff said.  This was a pretty tough one considering Twilight's head angle and position.  But it was fun anyway!

Edit:  And I'm so sorry if the quality in the full size is a bit wonky I don't know what went wrong.

When I was 14 years old, I saw a movie that changed the way I think.
It was the most touching experience ever in the movie theater.
I saw How to Train Your Dragon in 3D.
Later, I started to draw dragons, keeping the magnificent creatures in my imagination.
Making new characters and new friends along the way.
Most of all, keeping the most adorable dragon ever conceived, Toothless, in my mind.

Alright cool.  This should be fun!  For your end I think I'd love to see my ponysona in an awesome pose with pretty much a jedi costume on wielding twin katanas.

Omg ♥ you're ridiculously talented ;v ; 

I'd love to do a trade with you, but only if you would consider it a fair trade of course, which I would understand if you didn't. You're very very skilled ;A;

^^ Sure.
Would you be willing to do two characters for two? / What characters would you like me to draw for you?

Two for two sounds good.  And for my two characters, I'd love for them to be my ponysona and Twilight.  Since in my books they're brother and sister i thought it'd be nice to see them done by other artists.  I'd like for me (my ponysona) to be training Twi how to use her dragon powers, they're something like the Force from Star Wars but aren't.  My ponysona is part dragon so that explains why I see Twi having a dragon's elemental powers, (Me and Twi should be practicing ice powers because I really like the element.)  I'd also love to see them in robes that sorta resemble jedi robes.  Hopefully I haven't overwhelmed you with my end. 

Just in case, here's a picture of my ponysona and his color palette:  sta.sh/0mig6b5i6hkghostdragonspirit.deviantart.c… (And just in case you were wondering, yes, him and Rainbow are boyfriend girlfriend.)  And sorry about how you can't really see the tail, I had to make the grass cover it so it would add to the scene.  If you can find it, there's a better view of the tail in my picture where I'm dancing with Rarity.
 
Now who do you want me to draw?
