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.


Endless by Madness-with-Reason
To those who have no end, the mortal coil is punishment. They are cruel, reckless and self-loathing with no place for  redemption. Who are they and where are they to go?
Lights Out by Madness-with-Reason
Lights Out

“Tonight was the night. Tonight I was going to prove to everyone wrong, that Brave Song was more then just a name. The elders always said these caverns were dangerous and to stay away. Though no one ever listened. So far tonight the longest anyone stayed in the cavern was a few minutes before racing back out. I ve been in here for at least twenty minutes. Yeah I can't wait to see the look on their faces when I get  back. No one is ever going to pick on me for being a wimp again. If I can find my way back... I could have sworn I swam straight not sure how I lost track of the opening. Doesn't matter, the dark never hurt anyone. Oh sweet! I think I found an opening, I bet their totally freaking out by now.”

- Brave Song

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.

 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.
