Well a few weeks ago, the Great and Powerful
came and asked me if I was interested in taking part of the 2013 calender project for the Brony Thank-You Fund. www.bronythankyoufund.org/
That's the same organization that is putting together the little brony advertisement that will air on the hub in just a few days...
This was my reaction ---> www.youtube.com/watch?v=Evaoeq…
I was so happy to hear someone was interested enough in my brony fanart to let me in on such a project! I've never made artwork for something like a calender and I've never done anything collaborative like this before! After college is done I would certainly not mind getting more involved with other collaborations such as this one!
So my month of choice was August and keeping with the whole summertime theme, I thought something beach-related would be fitting. I was going to make a pic like this a while ago but the closing of summer caused me to put it off (much like it has with the Copperponies sadly) then the idea of using it for this project came to mind so here it is. It took quite a while to do and is comprised of not one but several very large image files of each character and the background. Quite a lot of work, so much so that I had to make an entire folder for it in my MLP folder on my computer! And this is vexel artwork done in Paint and Paint.net! No Photoshop or Illustrator here folks!
Thank you ever so much for letting me in on this rare opportunity, PixelKitties, it means a lot to me! This link directs you to the page for you to order the calender. >>> www.bronythankyoufund.org/?q=2… <<< There are dates included in it like conventions and the birthdays of the MLPFIM staff and more importantly, all proceeds will be used to fund the Derpy Hooves Animation Scholarship at CalArts so BUY IT!!

I thought they might save it for a post just about the calendar linking to all the art once it's done but this is good too.
EDIT 2: Just thought I'd update the post to remind everyone that all the BTYF calendars are currently set on this page so you new watchers of mine may not know that I made that pic! :3
