Madness-with-Reason's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
Monochrome, pastels and now digital. I like sketching mostly and love adding as much hand cramping detail as possible.

MLP, cartoons, video games and comics. From PG to Grimdark.



Willing to negotiate pricing depending on martial or commissioning more then one.


Crossroads by Madness-with-Reason
Ive lost track of how many days Ive been in this cave. Ive tried going back but I am only met with turns I don't remember taking. My only option is to keep moving, forward or backward, it doesn't seem to matter. I have a feeling I am not going make it out a alive or make it out sane at least. Besides the darkness, visions of horror, abominations and images of things that I can't quite understand all assault my senses. They come and go but even then I still feel them there in the back of my mind. Just at the edges of my sight. Keeping this mental journal has helped, since I lost my satchel though not like I need anything. Not sure how long Ive been here again but I haven't felt hungry or thirsty. I just feel driven to keep walking. Maybe I am already dead and I just cant accept it. Well if thats true why do I taste blood in my mouth? Iam pretty sure the dead dont bleed. Or at least I think they don't. Why am I here anyway? Is risking my life worth seeing if my Father was telling the truth about my birth. That grief will drive anyone do anything. Even if it means playing god. Finding out will either make my name more or less ironic at least. I suppose I'll find out one way or another. I have nothing more to do then travel further into the abyss.
Aria by Madness-with-Reason

Aria Blaze doodley page.

Something I whipped up. Kinda like how it turned out. Ive always thought she would rock the crossover. Punk/ Metal wear.

I toned down the muscles here so she fit and toned but not as much as the ABI Aria in comparison. 

Edit: Forgot that Sirens have fins.

DE l i r i u m

Then I realized-

I was in a moment of reprieve.

Was this what I wished for?

Was this the time to grieve?

I called my own bluff to see if I would kill my dreams

Sacrifice everything, all for my queens.

A twist of the knife and a hand on my throat.

My dreams were assured like the end of a note.

It whispered and drifted on the wind.

But would I really do all again.

To exist as a ghost in this world.

To leave all my work to be unfurled

For them I would –

All to imagine their grins.

A gentle hand – a frim stare

To feel their breath along my skin.

{Spoiler} The Smile
Some fanwork of a fanfic:…

{Spoilers} Just some thoughts on the story.

While reading the story I had a feeling where it was going, in fact I knew exactly where it was going. Though that didnt stop me from wanting to believe what Aria was saying and that it wasn't as bad as it seemed. The ending was terribly bittersweet, I got the impression about moving on from the past and forgiveness and all the shit. Again that's just my impression. Aria, I thought, was a good choice. Being the most grounded of the three sirens, so in the end her being able to live and let live made sense. Sunset was also a good choice as well, I always thought of her as Twilight-lite of sorts who threw a hissy fit. The other Human 5 or whatever their call are ok I guess but Sunset has really grown into her character. You have a former villain coming to a subdued agreement that "You guys arent so bad" with another villain gave it some meaning. On top of that nothing in fanfic besides death was  out of character or got too sappy. Towards the end I felt the bad news was delivered a little clunky but good enough. So all and all I really like it.

Added note: Her new outfit was nice just kinda meh to me so I changed it. This also gave me a reason to procrastinate.
 For the longest time Ive been wanting to get back to grimdark but not just that. Surrealism has always been a fancy of mine and now I am trying my hand at it. One of my favorite artist of all time was Pigfish. His work was amazing, I mean never would have thought pony work could be so well done and dark and just amazing. Well I never got a chance to really talk to him and say how much his work influence mine.

 For the past three years, I havent just been working to get noticed or even for money. I ve been working to get better and to able to call myself an artist. Staving, staying for days, staring at objects just to understand how they work. As of now I think its whatever. I dont know what my point was really with this post. My hope is just to keep getting better and one day be able to leave the pony comfort zone.
