Had a lot of fun with drawing this dress - the shiny material was an interesting challenge.

Adapting to Night News

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 23, 2015, 2:03 PM

For those of you who want to continue reading the ongoing story of Adapting to Night, it is going to be hosted on Rated-R-Ponystar’s page starting April 27.  As mentioned before, Rated-R-Ponystar is the author and original commissioner of the first 7 strips of the series, and the artwork was  done by Gray. The old strips will be moved and posted on Ponystar’s DA account along with all  new strips and news regarding the series, such as livestreams. The reason for this move is because  there has been some confusion with people believing that  I was the one that wrote or drew the comic series. I only helped Ponystar by allowing the series to run under my user name to help give the series notice, while crediting them in the descriptions of the strips.

The comics will be moved on  Sunday, April 26th. If you have any questions regarding Adapting To Night, please ask Rated. He’ll be making a similar to announcement on his DA shortly after this goes up. We hope you will continue to read the series after it moves.

A quick sketch of Vinyl Scratch as a pony version of Skrillex.  She seems like the type of pony to rock a cool look like this, especially on stage

Message from Drawponies

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 20, 2015, 6:23 PM

Hello everyone, Neil Wacaster here, which some of you know as Drawponies.  You may have heard the reports that I have traced screenshots from the show in my art and that I have been selling traced artwork at conventions.  

While I have done hundreds of original art pieces, it is true that some of my art has been traced from the show - particularly for things that we wanted to get out quickly for viewers, such as comic strips. I have focused on selling original artwork at conventions, but there have been cases where artwork was traced. I sincerely apologize for doing this, and for hurting those who have watched me. I also wish to apologize to those who feel they have been cheated by me. I should have taken the time to create art completely from scratch, instead of taking an easy way out to fill a quota or get something done quickly. From now on, I will be doing original artwork no matter how long it takes.

Let me address the other points that people are making:

  • Deleting negative comments and banning people for criticism - My volunteer moderator team and I did not delete negative comments made in the last few days. Claims that we did are false.

  • Adapting to Night as traced work - Adapting to Night is an example of work that is created completely from scratch.  Many of the characters, objects, and backgrounds used in the series are referenced from the show, but not traced or copied.  As with all of the art on the page, when we use fandom created assets, it is clearly credited in the description.

Despite all this, I will still be going forward, and continue to create artwork for the fandom.  None of the artwork that I will have at conventions will have show assets, and any work with traced assets will be discontinued entirely.

I know that many of my followers are angry.  It was a foolish mistake, and I should never have traced pictures for my work.  All I ask is for your forgiveness; if you do not wish to give any, I understand.

If you have any concerns about this issue, you are welcome to leave your opinions.  Your frustration and opinions are heard and read, even if I don’t reply.  Please direct your messages at me, rather than my friends, as I’m the one who did it.

I love drawing fanart for the brony community, and that isn’t going to change.  I am truly sorry that I let you down, and I hope that you can forgive me.

Listen Drawponies don't let all these hate comments get to you. You made a mistake and that happens to everyone. Just keep doing what you're doing and you'll have mine and all the fans who have already forgiven you, support.

"keep doing what you're doing"

Do youe mean keep selling traced images as his own works with no credits?

Sheesh, can't people just let this go? He made a mistake, everyone makes mistakes. It's in human nature to make and learn from our mistakes. He's already apologized for what he did. What more do you want from him?
