Brony Thank You Fund Calendar - April by Fetchbeer Brony Thank You Fund Calendar - April by Fetchbeer
On some days the rain will fall,
But that's no reason for appall.
There is much joy in simple things,
And much laughter a puddle brings.

Recently :iconpixelkitties: approached me, asking if I would draw a picture for the Brony Thank You Fund 2013 Calendar. And of course I said yes, I mean seriously, how could I say no to The Pixelkitties, she's one of my oldest and best friends in the Pony Fandom! So I started sketching zebras, because zebras are awesome. Eventually I settled on Zecora bounding through puddles in the rain, and pestered my friends countless times to tell me what was wrong with it! So this is the result!

I am proud to be one of the artists who has donated art to the calendar. And even better, the proceeds are being used to fund an animation scholarship! Isn't that awesome! Soo...

:iconapplebloomspinplz: Buy some calendars!

And here are some links to other pages from the calendar!

You can't always be dignified, you've got to have some fun, even if you do it secretly!

Now I just have to learn how not to be lazy with my art, so I can post more things as good as this!

And I need to learn two things...
1) Start drawing pony art so hopefully someone out there will appreciate what I do.
2) Not show animosity toward those that may be either better or heck, those that take part in stuff like this. No offense to you because this is by far an amazing picture. If you want to know why, send me a Note and I will explain.

I still haven't provided my critique on this yet so why not. The picture itself is glorious. The setting is appropriate and Zecora must really like enjoying herself out in the rain. What can I say because she needs to get out more. Having the Pinkamena hair style makes sense. It really does and you also captured Zecora having at least a good time.

I don't know what else I do have to say other than this is a great picture and I look forward to more.

It appears that thanks to the rain, Zecora's mane is now having I call the "Pinkamena-vitius".

I may enjoy that mane style a bit too much, I always seem to be putting it on ponies!

April.
April showers bring May flowers.
Rhyme.
Zecora.

It all adds up so naturally! This work inspires wonder. :D

It does add up in the end! And that story sounds much better than "Hey, I want to draw Zecora! Now what can I do with April?"

I'm sure that you can be forgiven, you've been trying to get a dozen artists organized for this, and that's about as hard as herding cats.

I said yes to :iconpixelkitties: before I found out who else was involved. And then when I saw all the far more famous names on the project, I realized that I was going to have to step up my game from my usual work! I'm just happy that was able to do a pic that was good enough to be put with all the awesome art that is being done for the calendar!

It's okay. The cuteness of your picture will soften the blow, I'm sure. ^^

Back when I was just a little foal my sister and I would don our ponchos after the rain, and wander about the neighborhood, jumping in puddles. I figured Zecora would enjoy the activity as well. Especially since the only thing that I could think of when assigned my month was the old saw "April showers bring may flowers."

Very nice indeed. I love Zecora in this picture. Do you enjoy contests?

I am far too lazy to actually participate in contests! I enjoy the concept of contests, I just find myself doing other things...

I can't wait to see how it turns out when printed! However I also seem to have set the bar higher for myself for future works XD... I guess I have to spend more time on everything now!
