Welcome to my little corner of DeviantArt!

I created this account many years ago with the promise of reintroducing myself to sketching and digital artwork, having been quite a prolific sketcher/scribbler back in school. Unfortunately that never amounted to anything (read: im lazy) until the craziest and most unlikely of things would kickstart my creativity once more: My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic. Had you told me back when i created this profile that it would be filled with ponies, I might have laughed at you :P

Please, enjoy my gallery and feel free to leave a comment!

I recently reached a milestone in May whereby I passed my 10th year of continuous employment at my current job, which means i have become eligible to take my long long service leave. And so i have myself two whole months of blissful vacation coming my way, and to make the most of it I have decided to make a trip to the US. Tickets have been booked and passports have been sorted.

I will be starting my journey in Los Angeles around July 22nd, where I will buy a (hopefully) cheap and reliable car and proceed to drive east, taking in as much of the country as I can along the way to Baltimore, arriving there on the weekend of the 7th in time for Bronycon! This is going to be an amazing trip and I look forward to being able to attend and finally meet some of my favorite artists and VA's. So, if you happen to be heading to Bronycon this year keep an eye out for a nametag with Starbolt on it, and come say hi if you spot me. :)


In other news, I have a twitter and tumblr that I set up some time ago but haven't really used. I'm going to attempt to use them both a bit more going forward so if you guys wanna throw me a watch that's cool.

Arcanist Twilight Remastered by Starbolt-81
Arcanist Twilight Remastered
Finally its begun! I have been meaning to re-do this piece for a while now.

Originally when I first got back into art, all I had was an old copy of Photoshop and some very rusty skills. I'm still proud of what I created back then, but looking back on them after how far i've come along I can't help but cringe a little at the way I had done things :P

So now, armed with experiece and the right tools, I am going to start taking some of that old work and remastering it with Illustrator. The changes will be minor, I still think the designs are as good as I could make them, but I will be adding some tweaks here and there and cleaning up the lines considerably. 

Made with :iconadobeaiplz:
Enjoy!

Original piece:
Arcanist Twilight by Starbolt-81
Original description:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My name is Twilight Sparkle, and i'm a Mage! What's your game?


Yet another random idea i had, and one that really got me motivated to put to paper and bring to life.

I always loved the design of the Time Lord Tier 13 Mage armor from Cataclysm, almost enough to make me wish i had rolled a mage. Its probably the best looking set of all the classes for the Dragon Soul raid. And of course Twilight would make a good mage, so i thought why not combine the two?

It was good fun studying the design and finding the best way to apply it to a pony form, and im rather pleased with the result.
