CAoM: After All is Quiet by Esuka
CAoM: After All is Quiet
Normally, I focus on doing the solstice pics since that's my thing, and it's an often overlooked date. But this year, I wanted to do something nice for the Academy as well.

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday, and can look back on 2014 with some joy. I know for me, it has been one of the best and one of the worst, both informative about where I am and where I am heading. I know this page has been very quiet up until just this past week, as status updates aren't something I do, and much of my work has been kept close to the chest. I appreciate all the kind words and all the good will you guys give, and I wish the same for you. I have a few more backlogged posts to make before the year is done, so I'll see you then.

Winter Warden
Luna brushed a bare hoof over the polished, gleaming surfaces. Every curve flowed like water, accentuating her own figure if she had been wearing it. For months, it had been gathering dust in the corner while the moon princess did her best to ignore it. That was after the months that she had "forgotten to move it into her chamber, and it had gathered dust in the hall where Celestia had presented it to her.

It was not that she did not appreciate her sister giving her gifts. They had worked so hard to make amends, and the younger sibling did not question the older's love as she once had. She did not even disapprove of the quality of the work. Not a soul would say it was anything but beautiful, sparkling like a gemstone on its ponyquin. It was just too... similar. Care had been taken to make it unique from the... previous suit of armor she had worn, but it was still too close.

What would ponies see if she were to present herself, decked head to hoof in sparkling, almost iridescent armor? Would they stand in awe? Would they flee in terror? The thought caught in her throat and threatened to choke her. Her horn glowed, and she nearly gripped the suit and hurled it over the balcony again, but again she stopped herself. It was a gift from her sister. She knew why Celestia had had it made. She knew of what had transpired in her absence.

The pony looked up at her moon. Fat and giddy, it floated in the sky, not halfway through its longest journey of the year. She bit her lip. If she let fear control her every step, she would never move on. Maybe tonight was the night.


I appreciate everyone's patience while I soldiered my way through school this semester. Suffice to say, it was quite the challenge, and I was not able to get any of my own work done aside from the Academy. With the holidays upon us, it's time for a break, to reflect, and to prepare for the coming year. I still have a backlog of work to post, so there's more to come. I hope you look forward to it.

Another work for the backgrounds class. The prompt was to do a conceptual work for a Blade Runner sequel.

Right, that posting thing. I was doing that. Ok, so this is one of the works from this semester I felt was, well, something. I had the opportunity to take a class on backgrounds, and I had a great time exploring a weak area and becoming stronger.

Done in CS5.
Commission: WoW- A Job Well Done on Some Accounts by Esuka
Commission: WoW- A Job Well Done on Some Accounts
So you know how my page has been silent since I disappeared off to school again? Unfortunately, I finished this the day before I departed, and while the commissioner received it, I never got to post it before the drive north. So let's get this out of the way before I work my way through the stuff from this semester.

A commission done for :iconInfinite-Scratch:, a long time support of the Canterlot Academy of Music.

Hello there, everyone,

Many months ago, I made a post about a fanfiction I have been working on. The first chapter had been posted to fimfiction along side this image, and… nothing else happened. That is because I have been working on this story for the past year, less so of late (as with most things outside of school), making sure I had a story worth telling before I posted any more.

Well, pitfalls past and proofreader situations improving, I feel that now is the time to finally begin posting. If you like my writing, I hope you look forward to this. At present, I plan to release on a weekly basis, provided I can get proofreader feedback in time for each chapter. I wanted to avoid the promise of later chapters without the capability to deliver, but at this stage, the first two passes of the story are complete.

If you would like to read The Line, you can find it here. I will make a point of warning: The Canterlot Academy of Music is developed to be family-friendly on the whole. This is not the case for The Line. A story of war should not be sugar coated, so fair warning: this is a more mature piece of writing. That said, I hope you enjoy.
