Behind Every Beautiful Thing... by Veggie55
Behind Every Beautiful Thing...
EDIT:  
Wow, what a welcome back! :wow:
Thank you all c:



Oh hey, look at that, I haven't posted one of these in 538 days... Aaaaanyway, moving on...


Seeing as the last thing I made involved these two, figured it was fitting to them again now.
Vento is actually thousands of years old and has a daughter seemingly... totally legit, I wasn't too lazy to make two random characters.... no, not at all... :paranoid:



Anyway, gonna try get back into the swing of things, while not going overboard about it, I'm pretty much out of the loop at the moment as you can imagine.
Oh god, somebody's already done this as a comic, haven't they?

Let's see what happens anyway!




I guess the most awesome thing I missed was the engagement between MandoPony and Sibsy 
Congratulations you two! c:

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 23, 2015, 4:32 PM

Yeah, long-arse journal, I know, sorry :v


Oh boy, where to begin? 

Have you ever looked back at something you did years ago and think; “Wow, please, no, I didn’t say/do that, did I?”

I’ve just had one of those moments… Feeling preeeeeetty dumb… 

 

As you probably know (Unless you’re one of my more recent watchers), on August 7th 2013, I finished up doing MLP-Related content and had hopes of making my own webcomics. (Really missed that goal, didn’t I?)

The reason I gave for this was due to my State-Examinations at the time, which had not only driven me away from watching the show, but also sucked up pretty much any of my downtime which I usually spent making images for you guys.
That said, I only just finished said exams when I made that decision to leave, thinking that when I went to college, I would still have very little time to enjoy the whole MLP scene again.

 … This is the part where I realise how much of a dumbass 17-year-old Veggie really was.

 

Since I started my course, even with the extra time I spend on assignments, I still have plenty of free-time which I could easily have spent being a productive person, but instead squandered most of it, rarely doing anything with all the excess hours.
(Seeing a pattern here?)

 

Ever since then, I always contemplated getting back into the fandom, with my (hopefully) improved skills, and even now I still feel the same way.

And as of the last month, the urge has grown, to the point of making this here journal you’re reading.

…yeah.

 

OKAY, THIS IS THE SPACE WHERE YOU SAY THE OBVIOUS;

“Wow, I knew it, you should’ve just taken a break, you dumbass, instead of overreacting and downright leaving, wow, you make me feel ashamed to be human. Bwahahahaha!”
 

And hey, I won’t lie, you’re totally right. In fact, I did it not just once, but twice, for the same reason.

So yeah, I totally deserved that.

“I MEAN, SERIOUSLY, YOU WERE ACTING LIKE A SCHOOL-GIRL ABOUT IT, HOLY SHIT VEGGIE!”

… okay, I deserved that too.
 

 

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want to… try again, I guess?

I wanted to see if I could get back into it after this stupid 2-Year gap I made myself and see if I could get back to making some content for you guys, since, really, that’s all that I missed.

Your feedback, ideas, reactions, all that jazz; meant the world to me. (Hell, I had, like, 50 watchers before MLP came along, you guys are the only reason I was ever noticed!)

 

So, while I don’t want to make a definite statement (You know, like my definite statement about leaving…) about returning full-time, I definitely wanted to make an attempt, and if it went well, try get back uploading content on a regular basis, and hopefully not make the same mistakes that I did years ago.
(Producing poorly-written and made content purely to maintain a consistent upload rate was probably my biggest sin.)

Netflix is urging me to catch up on what I missed, and talking with some of the great friends I made over the years always greatly helped, filling me in on the latest happenings and whatnot, encouraging me to give it another shot.
 






Sorry for writing a bloody novel in this journal, and if you read all of this, I greatly appreciate it. (And question your sanity...)

And sorry for being such a drama-queen back then, hell, even now, I mean, did you read this? Bloody hell, I make it sound like I’m dying or something.
 

Anyways, long story short, I want to give it all another shot, and hopefully improve in those places that I failed, and to never write another bloody dramatic journal entry again, EVER.

 

So yeah, I’m going to sleep on it, but I welcome your thoughts and opinions, after all, the only reason I’m really considering this is because of you guys.
"OH GOD, STOP BEING SO CORNY, YOU'RE ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY KILLING ME."

 

Let’s see what happens, eh?

Hey there.

I'm a hobby-artist / musician who draws up things every know and again.

While I started here doing dragon-related artwork, the main reason you're here is because you've probably seen my MLP artwork somewhere and decided to check me out; thanks for that! :iconsweetblushplz:


If you're reading this in 2015, I went through a rather unnecessary phase of inactivity and I'm now trying to get back on my feet to try provide content for you guys.

So, hope you enjoy my page, thanks for coming :wave:

Some jackass is spreading lies about you on the Derpibooru upload of your newest pony comic. Here's his exact quote:

"I’m not glad that he’s back. I saw him at BUCK and he was a complete asshat, he was very rude and immature in answering everyone’s questions. He has this undeserved superiority complex and he hates his fans and the fandom. If you’re going to be invited to speak at a con the least you could do is be grateful about it and be respectful to people who admire you. Then he had the audacity to post on his deviantart that he hates the fans and cons. He’s also rude to his fans on deviantart. When you stick your middle finger at people who made you famous then leave the fandom saying F*** you, I hate you all, you don’t deserve to be welcomed back."

I'm wondering where he got that idea, because you've NEVER acted like that.

Huh, weird.
Though the guy doesn't seem to recall the fact that I wasn't physically at BUCK, henceforth making if difficult to answer questions anyway :p

ech, some people are just like that, I wouldn't take much notice of it (:
