Hi all! I've been a bit inactive lately, so I wanted to post some updates...

As you likely noticed, I changed my username from SpaceKitty to SambaNeko!  Both names were spawned in 2003, when I registered my domain - spacecatsamba.com.  SpaceKitty was originally my preferred choice, but it proved to be too generic - when I'd try to sign up for new sites and/or services, it was often already taken.  So when that happened, SambaNeko was my trusty alternative.  I've since come to prefer it, and it's my handle on most other sites where I have a presence.  Since DA originally offered no way to change your name and I didn't want to re-establish a new account, I was fine leaving it as-is, but since I've got Premium for now, I figured I ought to make the switch!

Aside from that, sorry I suck at responding to comments and notes! ~_~  I do read and appreciate all of them! :)  To those who have asked about commissions, thank you so much for your interest, but I am not currently accepting them.  This is due to time constraints - I actually did a lot of request art when I was still in school, but now I'm employed full time, with less leisure time, and it gets split up between life stuff, art, and any other pursuits.  I try to avoid spreading myself too thin, or else I get frustrated and unproductive.  It's possible that I may take commissions at some point, but I can't guarantee or provide a timeline for when it'd happen.

In other news, after watching all episodes to date, I can say I've become a Steven Universe fan.  It took a few tries to stick - the first few episodes aren't the best, and Steven comes off kind of annoying before he gets some character development going - but the subtle storytelling, good humor and odd-but-lovable characters (and blatant references to Utena, my favorite anime) have won me over.

Aaaand ponies took a surprise mid-season hiatus. ~_~  I'm liking this season so far though!

I enjoyed "Pinkie Pride", and I think it's a good lesson for artists too (it's okay if others pursue similar passions; you don't have to compete, and it doesn't erode your identity as an artist).

Twilight's BBBFF!  I had actually started on a Shining Armor wallpaper awhile ago, but it was such a boring pose... I scrapped it and made this one instead.

Hi there! I'm a web developer and hobbyist artist! I love design, animation and games. I usually work in vectors, and I've been doing a lot of MLP: FiM art recently.

You can also find me and my work on my personal site, WeLoveFine, tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook.

Hi. Um... I recently made this gray Discord based on your silhouette of him, and I'm thinking of making more gray stuff. Do I have your permission to use your basic shapes of designs?
