Mountain Vista by Mabon-Tail
Mountain Vista
My first oil painting. I used the wet-on-wet technique here, since I've been binge watching Bob Ross on YouTube. The painting didn't turn out quite like I had hoped, since the brushes that I used weren't all that great, but I still had a lot of fun working on it. Heck, the worst part about it was waiting several weeks for it to dry.

[$] Jade Hitting the Books by Mabon-Tail
[$] Jade Hitting the Books
Another commission for my friend Yona. His friend Jade sits in her chaise lounge, reading by candlelight. Her mane and tail aren't actually pink and yellow, but rather a highly reflective silver. Her cutie mark is a balance scale merged with a sword.

EDIT: Holy crow, I literally just found out that since Alyssa in Repose sat in Dropbox at one point, I was able to recover the source files even after removing them! Thank you Dropbox, I freaking love you! :tighthug: Now I don't have to worry about burning a gaping hole in my wallet on file recovery!
:iconlawooplz:

Back in late December, my Mac's hard drive suffered a catastrophic logical hard drive failure. I was working on the early stages of Alyssa in Repose at the time. The operating system wouldn't boot, but the files were still accessible. So, using a separate laptop as a backup drive, I was able to recover all of my most important files, wipe the Mac's hard drive, reinstall the operating system, and put all my files back. It sucked, but I was able to get my computer back up and running after a couple of weeks. That, and shelling out a bit of cash for a 32 GB USB memory stick to use as a temporary boot drive. If you follow me on Twitter (@MabonTail, bee tee dubs,) you'd have basically seen me live-tweet the whole event.

Fast forward a month later. I was watching videos on YouTube when my computer seizes up entirely. Then I start hearing a clicking noise from my hard drive. I turn it off, then back on, and again the OS wouldn't boot. This time though, I get an image of a flashing folder with a question mark. Basically, I've come to the conclusion that my computer has suffered another catastrophic hard drive failure, this time of the mechanical variety. Bit more difficult to recover from. Hopefully I can send my Mac to my local computer repair shop and have them salvage my newest files.

I saw this coming for a while now, since my Mac is over seven years old. My old graphic design instructor back in my college days told me it'd last about this long. But, I'd be more copacetic with it had I put my Alyssa in Repose source files in Dropbox or any of my USB memory sticks rather than my not-backed-up art folder. It's basically the one file I care about salvaging at this point, since everything else is already backed up. If I had backed up Alyssa in Repose, I wouldn't even bother with file salvage.

Right now, I'm using my desktop PC as a backup system so I can still work on digital art and my studio stuff. Hopefully I can save up for a new hard drive soon, either an internal or external one. Preferably both, in a perfect world. If any of you here want to chip in and help me out, I'm always open for commissions, and I've got a Patreon  you can support.

I'm a Pagan artist with a love for tarot and an admittedly unhealthy addiction to video games. I specialize in digital art and various anthropomorphic animals, especially foxes... At least, I would if I wasn't so easily distracted. I'm also in the process of resurrecting The Vulpine Tarot.

My Llama Policy
I have absolutely zero interest in deviantART's llama badge program, therefore I have disabled my badge notifications. If you send me a llama badge, I will not know about it… Ever. If you feel compelled to show your appreciation for my artwork by giving a llama badge, I recommend that you comment or fave the works you like, or even watch my gallery instead.

TL;DR ~ You give a llama, you get nothing! You lose! Good day, sir!

Can I ask why you've been doing so little these past six months?

The short answer: I'm a horrible slacker.
The long answer: I've always struggled with remaining focused on certain tasks for extended periods of time. I do have some artwork in progress right now though.

Anyway, it's always nice to know that people are still interested in my art. It really helps. :3
