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!

Elite: Dangerous design comp: Anaconda 'Wavecrest' by Starbolt-81
Elite: Dangerous design comp: Anaconda 'Wavecrest'
And now for something a little different!

So i'm into a game called Elite: Dangerous, a rather epic-scale space sim with literally an entire galaxy to explore, trade, pirate or bounty hunt your way through in a wide variety of ships of varied shapes, sizes and purposes. Recently a community competition was launched where people could design new paint schemes for a few of the games ships, so I decided to have a go at it and put my creative design skills to the test.
I am a big fan of red/white colour combinations, I find it striking to look at, and I believe this design will stand out even at a distance as the design brief asked. However the red can easily be swapped out for others colours without losing visual impact.

The ship I chose, the Faulcon DeLacy Andaconda, is one of the few ships in the game sorely in need of more designs. I plan to own one in the near future (when i can scrape together the 150 million plus credits I need) and it would be awesome to see some good designs avaliable for it.

Finally home after two and a half weeks of adventure! Had an amazing time over in the US of A seeing the sights, but Bronycon was definitely the highlight. Stayed at the Hotel Indigo, a bit further from the con than I woulda liked but still only a 10 min walk from the convention center.
As for the con itself, I met up with Bernd01, flutterguy317, RainbowPlasma and DewlShock for the 3 days, as well as getting to hang with the likes of LateCustomer and Celebi-Yoshi, big thanks to them for making me feel welcome and showing me around. :D
Also got to meet a few of my fave artists like dennybutt, JaDeDJynX, pepooni, Wicklesmack and andypriceart (to name a few), as well as score a ton of swag from the vendors hall:
 

Probably got a little carried away there, but totally worth it!

Heres hoping i can get the time and money i need to go again next year :P

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.
