Hey all!

I thought it might be fair to all of you to tell what has happened with my designs that were supposed to get on WeLoveFine. In short: although I'm not entirely certain on my decision yet, it is unlikely that any of my designs will ever hit the WLF stores. If you care for a short explanation, I'll explain.

When I first applied for an artist account on WeLoveFine everything went well and it didn't take long for me to get permission to make a shirt design from my glowing wallpaper series. But later, when I submitted my first design, the whole process started to get a bit rusty. They told me they needed up to 20 working days to get licensor permission, but even after five weeks, the status on my submission didn't change, so I had to mail them. So eventually it became clear the licensor approved, and I could go on with getting my design on WLF. That's when they decided to tell me that they needed at least multiple designs from me before they would put any of it on their store. They never told me this, nor could I find anything about this on their site or anywhere.

At first I accepted it and thought I would still do all the other designs, but because everything took so long I got busier with studying again and the wait took away quite a bit of my motivation to work on it. A little while ago I decided to give it up entirely, and concentrate on my digital drawing, mostly because I enjoy that a lot more at the moment. WLF never got back to me so I guess they would still allow me to submit the designs eventually, but I wouldn't expect them to hit their stores anytime soon.

I guess it's a combination of poor communication and lack of my motivation that it had to end up this way, and I'm sorry to anyone that was waiting to order these designs, but I currently simply do not want to spend my free time making these designs, nor having to mail back and forth with WLF again. I will still try to do digital drawings regularly, so whoever is watching me for those, I hope you will enjoy whatever there's to come!


PS: Send me a note if you want a high resolution image or PSD file of the RBD shirt design. Maybe you can find a site yourself that will let you print it on a shirt.

Two questions:

1. Could you continue your glow wallpapers? I'm still waiting for more. They're rotating on my desktop for months. :D

2. Do you take comissions?

I won't be making any more wallpapers. They were fun while they lasted, but I got more interested in other styles of digital drawing. Of course, for the last year I haven't done any worthwhile drawings because of my studies and other hobbies. That's why I don't take commissions either, sorry '^^

It's been forever since you've submitted anything :c

Life has been getting busier and busier for me during the last year or so. Combine that with other hobbies I want to spend time on, and I don't really have any time left to draw ponies :p
I might get back to it in the future, but I can't make any promises I'm afraid!

It's nice to hear people are still interested though <3

Okies, well it's good to know you're still alive then c:

Do you have another DA account that you don't use for ponies??
I would be interested in seeing what your non-pony stuff looks like~
SmockHobbes Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry but this is my only dA account '^^
Besides pony I only draw stuff for school, and that's either not interesting or I'm not allowed to post it here.
