Just a few little doodles of Opalescence and Winona, two characters I haven't drawn much of (or much at all really), an oversight I decided I needed to rectify. It isn't a lot by any means but anticipate much, much, much more art from me again soon!
Yes, I admit I find her rather charming myself in spite of her often catty personality (though I guess as she actually is a cat she at least has a decent excuse). Thank you very much dear, I appreciate it!
My pleasure!! ^_^ I have to admit though, that I"m thoroughly grateful that none of my cats have ever been like Opal. Although, my Thornicus is pretty fussy when it came to her kibble, lots of "crumbs" on the floor; whereas my mom's cat Gilbert would vacuum up anything dropped on the floor, Sullivan too, giglges.. She thinks she's a dog!
Haha aww, such cute names! Yes, as I've said my cat Grace is for better or for worse quite a bit like Opal (and she is a very fussy eater, strangely refusing even chicken and fish though she is more than happy to eat any of my houseplants any chance she is able). My other younger cat Mariah on the other hand is incredibly sweet and friendly and very dog-like... she follows me everywhere, almost never stops meowing and has knocked more than one piece of furniture over before (and tripped me) from so vigorously rubbing on everything constantly.
Oh my, well Sullivan gobbles up any kind of food from a plate; chicken, fish, steak, pork, ice cream, cake, chocolate XD Again, she thinks she's a dog. ^_^ We were told she was raised in a foster home that had 5 dogs and one other cat, so we figure that is where she learned and it has stuck with her ever since. Oh that kitty! Aww ^_^ My Thornley would do that with me when I was living at home. She never knocked much down, unless on my computer table, then the "desktop ponies" were all targets. But sometimes she'd run in front of me and make me have a nice spontaneous break dance routine. Then again, Gilbert and Sullivan can be dangerous walking down the stairs if it is close to supper time. Gilbert my mom and I agree is more like a real person. We have had him since around 6 months of age, and constantly talked to him like a real person. His personality was always cool to see, now that he's about 12 years old, he's more relaxing, 'enjoying retirement' as I call it.
These two are very much like their owners in terms of how their personalities do (or likely would) clash. But yes I agree that in spite of their differences, Rarity and Applejack make quite a perfect pair.
I absolutely did not notice this in my inbox, on account of how awful I am at noticing things in my inbox lately ;_; I apologize!
They're cute! And I think the Winona in the middle is my favourite xD Far be it normal for me to prefer the puppy in any picture, but that face is just cute to me. Opal on the right is also nice. It's nice to see her look pleased over something for once... even if it's probably her own self. I like cute little doodle collections like these, though, since you get to express several sides of someone relatively quickly and in a cute and easy way. It's one of the reasons why I wish I had the time to properly learn sketching for myself... though I'd probably give up pixels if I ever learned how to draw, and we can't have that
It's good to see some art :3 I hope there is some more soon, whenever time or heart permits.
That's quite alright dear! I know not everyone watches scraps after all. But I am glad you like them, even if they are just little doodles! I was quite surprised at myself when I realized I had never really drawn either of these two, something that I felt some practice would eventually be necessary for. So here they are, and yes, I had actually imagined that pleased Opal was head-rubbing against Rarity in a rare display of affection (the younger of my cats does this to me to the extent I've tripped over her before).
As for more art, there are certain things affecting my timing right now but believe me, it is ready and it IS coming!
Thank you dear! I think the color usage was more subconscious decision-making on my part.... honestly, all that I did was draw both pets in the same pinky-purple color and then as I always do selected my shade colors from that. So it was a purposeful choice of a unified palette in a way, but with far less effort involved than you are probably imagining.
Whatever the case though, I am glad you like them!
Ugh, Dia why u upload stuff to scraps!? I never see them then!! Haha, I'm joking at least. Anyway, it is just stupendous to see more artwork from you doll! Especially of these two! I like Opal honestly, yeah she's kind of grumpy, but I figure that's just because she's probably old. She probably has arthritis and other old cat problems which makes her kind of grumpy. It's like my cat Blue. Oh, do you have a cat!? I love cats. And dogs too. I have 2 of them. Ah but I'm babbling, I digress! Adorable doodles my dear, so happy to see more artwork from you. You're a doll!
I do have a cat actually, two in fact. The older of the two is honestly not unlike Opal in her countenance and demeanor, but I'm afraid she doesn't really have the excuse of being especially old or troubled by health problems. It's just her kitty personality. She still has her moments though, just like Opal must I'm sure.
Anyhow though, I'm glad you like them, and thank you for such enthusiastic praise even on such simple doodles! You're a dear.
Aww, I'm sorry to hear you're older cat is kind of grumpy! I have been lucky that most of my cats are very sweet. I have two outside cats and one inside. My inside cat is named Blue, and I love her very much . She's very old though, so much so she can't get on the counter anymore in the kitchen (it's her favorite spot to lay). So I have to put her up there all the time. <3
I had two other cats but they have since passed. One was a very old gray cat, she passed two years ago. She was very, very old so I expected it. I hope I made her last days comfortable at least.
My other male cat passed a bit after that, but he got sick and passed before we could take him to the vet. That was very sad. He was still young too.
I love kitties. I have a hard time deciding if I am more of a cat or dog person though.
Oh hey! Speaking of this artwork, I want to tell you I actually featured it on a journal of mine! daniel-sg.deviantart.com/journ… I hope you might see and it and like it? I love sharing your artwork, my dear!
Yes, I suppose that is true. I am sorry you have lost a lot too, my dear. Abd you're welcome! It helps me to remember that our loved ones, pets and animals, are only truly gone if you forget about them. I hope you're doing well today?
Awww, they look so adorable. I am particularly a fan of the first picture of Opal, it looks like she is voting or about to hold a speech Great work on their expressions and that elegantly simple style really suits both of them
Hello there my dear, and thank you so much for the nice comments! Voting or about to hold a speech indeed, haha... truth be told I'm not sure what it is I intended her to be doing, but cats are funny creatures sometimes and not above odd random behaviors I guess. Anyway I really do appreciate it and am glad you liked them, and it's so nice to hear from you again! I hope you have been well and that life has been good!
My pleasure as always, it is good to see and hear you again as well, always brightens my day It is not as if you need her to make anything specific, sometimes the imagination just runs wild with interpreting little scenes like these. I have been good, a few ups and downs as usual but quite happy on the whole. I hope things are going as lovely for you
Darling, hello there! Such an unexpected but utter delight to hear from you! And well, quite honestly I am just as busy if not moreso than ever before, and have been faced with more challenges recently than I think I ever have been at any other one time in my life however I can say that my outlook has changed over the past several weeks, and with it my energy level and sense of commitment. It's amazing the difference it makes in one's attitude and perception of life the moment one sets their mind on accomplishing something, and really believing it's possible. So yes, I've been well and definitely much more productive recently, and on that note, speaking of Rarijack I think it's safe to say you can expect to see more from me soon, haha.
I hope you have been well! It really is lovely to hear from you.
I have been well. Insanely well. While you were gone I became a bestselling author. Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm A Supervillain sold so well I had to write a sequel, and just finished that! It kept me so busy I've been semi-hermiting myself the last two or three months, but it's written. I may be able to move back to LA in a year, if my sales keep up.
Hearing from me should never be unexpected. Even the way you phrase your replies fills me with joy. I assure you, I will be watching everything you post here, and I've been checking your blog occasionally in the hopes of your return as well!
Oh my goodness listen to you, congratulations!! You're absolutely fantastic! I remember your writing and am so, so incredibly happy to hear that it has paid off in such a way at last, certainly you deserve no less! I can't even believe how incredibly satisfying and exciting and inspiring these past months must have been for you, and again, I give you my most heartfelt kudos on your accomplishments. I will absolutely have to procure myself a physical copy as soon as possible... I will let you know when I do.
Ah well, I do thank you sincerely for your interest and encouragement, and also for the kind words. Rest assured there is much more coming from me soon, and I look forward both to sharing it and to continued correspondence!
Oh aww, well those really are such lovely compliments (and I do love tea and porcelain things), thank you my dear! I think you're far too kind to such sketchy doodles honestly but even so, I truly appreciate it. It's nice to hear from you!
