The gallery has MORE! WOOOOOOOOO

All these people make way cooler art than I do. They deserve your views!

There's a max of 24 images in here at once.
Nine whole months without releasing any art? I feel pathetic. Laziness + working a full-time job = not a lot of poni.

I feel bad enough to give you this as a (WIP) preview of what I'm currently working on:



No promises on release dates, though...

If you want to use my art:
Do whatever you like with it, no credit required! Only two requirements - don't say it's your own, and don't sell it. Other than that, go crazy! If you do make something with my art, though, I'd love it if you sent me a link. I'd like to see it!

Send me a note if you wanna chat. It's cool, I don't bite.

Thanks for the way you view art! *don't call it your own, don't make money off of it, don't use it to further your cause, no credit needed, have fun* is how all digital art should be.

Also wanted to ask if you work for Oculus? If so, even more awesome; would there be plans in the future for an interactive pony program/game? I'm excited about future technology being used for ponies; I'm programming basically a 3D pony LED cube version of a tamagotchi currently (takes up all my art and music time) just a small-scale prototype though

Thanks! It's not like being a pony artist is my career or anything, so why restrict it? I love open and free things, and if somebody wants to use my art, it makes me happy!
Besides, they're not even my character designs, so it seems kinda silly to try and "protect" it.

I do work at Oculus! How'd you know?
We don't really make the games or software, we just make the headset. So you'd have to find somebody else willing to make a pony game, though I've been hoping for something, too.
Sounds like a cool project you're making. Is this actually a physical cube? What are you using to control it?

Someone on reddit said 'captain nemo' and 'other name' are the same person. Ironically a few days ago I discovered what Oculus was, so I was a good bit interested and I remembered seeing your name somewhere in the fandom before. Google led me here ^_^ I'd like to get an oculus eventually, for pony among other things.

There's a couple tutorials if you google LED cube; basically a wire-frame LED array. I'm using an Arduino and it's language is basically C# and has a max clock of 16Mhz, so I'm adding potentiometers and sensors to make it a MIDI controller, beat reaction/3D visualizer, play games and of course, interact with a model pony. The idea is proximity controls to *almost* pet them, slide an apple, brohoof, etc, maybe eventually add a speaker and SD card to make it respond verbally as well.

Like I said, it's a bare functioning prototype, but the full version will be 15x15x15 or 16x16x16 pixels; maybe larger if I can find 10k+ LEDs for insanely cheap (or ideally, OLED tech gets cheap). I know it'll work as I've checked limitations of everything, but programming it to render pony animations is going to be a challenge...

Oh, how funny. Yeah, I'm very open about who I am online - not too difficult to find me. Plus, it's very obvious on reddit because my posting history has some of my pony art in it.
What thread did you see that in, by the way? I'm kinda curious, now.

And wow, that's a pretty ambitious project. I didn't think it'd be that big.
You're likely going to want something a bit more powerful than an Arduino if you want to eventually drive 4000 LEDs at a decent framerate! I wish you luck, though; it sounds very cool. Do you have much experience with C programming?
