|New shaded piece of Rainbow Dash from Equestria Giirls!!|
I'm flutterguy317, vector artist and creator of Ponyscape, vector art creation software based on Inkscape! I create vector artwork of ponies from the TV show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and sometimes dabble in creating vector art of old Disney shows. My gallery consists of show-accurate art, which is meant to be a resource to the community to be used in any type of projects, and more stylized art. I have been branching out into adding new artistic features to my vectors, including lighting, shading, and textures, and I hope to improve as an artist in general.
For creating my art, I currently use either a desktop running Mageia 3 Linux or a laptop running Linux Mint 14, and I use Ponyscape for vectoring and the Gimp for any non-vectoring work that I do. I work as a software engineer for a company that makes laser-cutting machines, so I have put my vectoring to use and created some pretty neat marked-metal ponies.
I worked on developing a derivative of Inkscape called Ponyscape, which uses the latest Inkscape base and adds some useful features! Because of this work, I've also been able to contribute some bugfixes back to upstream Inkscape. You can find out about the latest version of Ponyscape in the Ponyscape-Vectors group. I have now begun work on a new vector suite which will feature many of the features of Ponyscape, plus animation and some other useful features.
I'm also a co-host (along with RainbowPlasma, Bernd01, and Atmospark) of an awesome podcast/radiocast on Everfree Radio called Cutie Art Crusaders! We discuss MLP fan artwork centralized around a different theme each week. It's been a ton of fun, and we've gotten to spotlight art from all reaches of the fandom and meet some pretty amazing artists! More info can be found on our deviantart page:
You are free to use any of my vectors in other works, but please make sure to give me credit and let me know that you're using it. You don't need my permission, but I'd love to be able to see what you create!
Thank you all so much for all of the favs, comments, and watches! I can't get around to responding to everypony, but I do really appreciate them!
