*Sniffles* >:P

Mr. Vonce is sick again. He's got a totally not cool cold bro.

So he's been stuck in bed for the past few day. While in bed he did the only thing he could do...draw pron! xD

So here we have some sketches of Vonce in two different forms. One in his current-familiar form and the other his future, older form. Originally Vonce was supposed to be some sort of celestial/god-like dragon (cuz that was SO AWESOME and UNHEARD OF when I made him in high school xD). And he still is for the most part. I've been trying to come up with a background story for him, who he is, where did he come from, etc.. 

I also been trying to come up with some of his relatives :D

Here we have some rough sketches of Vonce's daddy. He looks a little too much like Vonce but hey, there should be some resemblance right? xD V's dad isn't really a new character. He's been around in my mind for a while, I just couldn't decide on what he should look like. 

So we know Vonce is a god-like dragon, so that means his dad is one too! :D His dad is the supreme god on his dragon home world. Dad kicked out Vonce---err, sent him on his own DESTINY FINDING JOURNEY ADVENTURE so he could develop his godly powers---and that's how he ended up on Earth or something. :D


Hey, I'm no writer. I'm just a lazy sick furry artist. :P

Of churches, apples, and horses

So BGN was out and about this morning...

I went up to Chimayo (just east of Espanola) to take some pictures of the church up there, the Santuraio de Chimayo.

I needed some new reference pics of the church and this morning was perfect for taking pictures. The lighting and colors just look so nice in the morning light. I needed some new pics because I am going to update a older drawing I made featuring the church, Moonlight Song. So I got me some good shots of the church AND of something else too...

Right below the church is small field were a horse lives. This horse as been in this field for a few years. He's very social, always sticking his head over the fence interacting with visitors who walk from the parking lot by the field up to the church.

On my way back to the car I stopped and took some pics, and he came over and said hi to me. :D

He poked his head over and I got to pet him. He even started licking my hand. xD

While I was there, his owner came by and gave him his breakfast, fresh apples from his orchard. I chatted with him and even bought some apples from him too.

Two years ago I made a pic featuring a anthro horse based on him, seen in Out by the Pool on FA. I had a little contest this morning on twitter seeing if people could find him. A few people thought he was Susan but nope, it wasn't him. (though I have to admit my pic of Susan does look more like him than the horse in the pool pic xD )

Now if only I could get closer to the wild ones down in Placitas... xD


Up and Away

This past week was the International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque! 

The Balloon Fiesta is one of (if not the biggest) events for New Mexico. So many people come from all over the country and the world for this. You would think that just standing around watching hot air balloons taking off would be kind of...well, boring. xD But its not. It's memorizing! D: You just want to storm the nearest balloon and hop in the basket and take off! xD If you ever need to go on vacation in October come to Albuquerque! You don't want to miss this.

Aside from all the cool colors and shapes of the balloons, one of the coolest things I saw there were these two people using just chairs attached to their balloon. They're all like "SCREW BASKETS, WE'RE HARD CORE BALLOONISTS BITCHEZ." xD

The morning ascension is one of the major highlights of the fiesta. They do it each morning unless the weather isn't good (which it did turn ugly on Friday so they had to cancel it). In the evenings after sunset they will do a  balloon glow, in which they blow up their balloons but don't take off. They stay on the ground lighting them up. All my balloon glow pics are on my phone! xD I'll have to upload those later.

Hopefully I'll get to go again next year. I may even try to get a ride in one of the balloons too. :D (but only in one that has a basket xD)

Friday Sketches

Well, other than prancing about in a sombrero all day I did do some doodles. 

First off we have a sketch of Ramsay Pony, apparently not enjoying his meal. 

And who better than to beat Jamie up than Memphis! He'll do a good job I think. xD Man, trying to figure out his colors and patterns took forever to do. But they came out okay in the end I think. He's supposed to be an Egyptian Cobra so I wanted him to look kinda "pharaoh-ish" but I took some liberty with the patterns (they don't usually have stripes)

Thats all for this post ; )



So BGN's parents went to Las Vegas for the weekend, leaving him all by himself...

...well. not really. 

He was left alone with this Sombrero! :D

So of course he's gonna try it on since no one is around.

Welcome to Nuevo Mexico.

I'm not sure where this came from but it's been sitting up on our microwave for a while. 

So why not put it to good use. :D

That's all for now. ¡Adios!  ; )

Trying to get back into the groove

Another post from me! And it hasn't been a month or more since the last! xD

So as you may know I recently moved back into my parents house. It's been about 2 weeks since the move and I feel like I still haven't recovered from it. It's strange because I feel really different, not the same. I don't want to say I'm depressed but I certainly do feel "low." 

Ever since I moved I've been completely drained of artistic energy. I just did not have the power or spark to do any work. I don't know why but trying to get something done just took forever to do. I sort of felt "worthless." I just didn't feel like myself. 

I think it came from a couple of things that happened since I moved back, i.e, a few family issues, no money (neg. balance), cold weather, and just yesterday I felt my first cavity in my teeth in like forever. I'm starting to think moving back was a bad idea. As much as I missed Espanola I really, really miss Albuquerque. I want to move back down there so much. 

We're halfway through the year and all I can say is I'm ready for it to be over. This year has been one of the worst in my life and I just want to start over fresh. 

Though I don't know why I have to wait for the year to end to start over. I should just do it right now...


Enough of my emo-ness!
I may have been down in the dumps but I think I'm starting to come back. 

Moving on is a sketch featuring JPup and two brothers. Two brothers? Which two brothers? Why, its Chris and Martin Kratt---the Kratt Brothers!  :D

I have to thank them and their show "Wild Kratts." It really cheered me up a lot. This sketch is some fan art of the show, with Martin in his creature power suit, using some demon creature power. >x) 

The next sketch is a PONY sketch! :D (have to be feeling better if I'm drawing Ponies!)

 Here we have an anthro version of (an older) Pipsqueak. At first I really didn't care for him but recently he's been getting popular, and the more I see him the more I'm staring to like him. xD Not sure why but Discord is also there behind him. Also, Rumble (Thunderlane's lil'brother) makes an appearance next to Pip in the bottom left sketch.

And finally we have more Biggens-ness.

I got the idea today (while watching some preening flamingos on Wild Kratts xD) of doing a pic of Elijah being forced to preen his wings. I wasn't sure how to do it so I made a few different scenes. In the end I'm going to do the bottom left one, with Biggs holding Elly down and Jumeiras plucking away.

Welp that's all for now! 

We'll see you on the creature trail ; )

Out and In

So BGN moved back up to Espanola over the weekend. Moving is always a fun thing to do right? RIGHT? xD

Especially if the room you're moving into looked like this. I loved my old messy room but it was time to clean it up a bit, only because I needed to make sure all my stuff from Rio Rancho would fit in there.

And so here it is today. Slightly cleaner yet somehow packed wall to wall with even more crap. xD Oh well. 

At least I still get to wake up to exposed fiber glass in the ceiling. :D

And my old computer desk is a little cleaner too. Thats all for now! ; )

When it rains, it turtles

Well surprise surprise! Look who it is! It's been a while since we've had an update or sorts. So lets fix that! And just how will we fix that? Why, with PONY of course! :D

So to start off, we have a new character, named Brae-Ein. He will be making an appearance in a new little comic I'm working on that will also be featuring me!

 With me being my usual self, on my epic quest to grope a horse. I may just do it this time! 

Moving on we have an interesting sketch book. Anyone happen to know who it may belong too? ;D

This book came from my buddy Unktehila (aka BearPaws ). I'll be filling up his custom sketchbook with lots ol' Iksar tomfoolery (tomfoolery that you can only find with BGN xD).

And to finish off today's post we have some pics of a turtle that lives in our backyard. The turtle only comes out when it rains and we've been getting some rainstorms this month (our monsoon season is well under way). He was out on our front porch yesterday scooting around. Our Kitty Wally didn't seem to interested strangely enough. (must know its that rock with legs that doesn't do anything xD)

Thats all for today! Hopefully we'll see some more posts soon!

Shopping for calibrations

So BGN went grocery shopping this morning, and look who sneaked into one of my bags!

Why its Mr. Garrus from Mass Effect! :D I found him at Hastings this weekend but I didn't have money to buy him right away. So I hid him behind Miranda so no one would see him. Luckily he was still there this morning when I went to get him! :D Except Miranda was gone and replaces with Mordin... :0

Oh well! I don't care about the others! I just happy I got him. Now he and Grunt can keep me company on my desk! :D

Or he can hang out with Braeburn too. :D

Old blog...

New Blog...

Looks good...I just wish I could center/format the blog title text (text over the image on top) BUT IT WON'T LET ME >:V

Oh well....maybe I'll just get a tumblr account. xD

New Stuff

Welp, looks like BGN got a few new things. :D

I got both a new phone and a new computer this week. My computer was my own gift to me and my phone was a birthday gift from my mom. :D (Aren't moms the best :3 ). So far I've been enjoying my phone more than my computer. (Mostly because my computer is kinda letting me down. D: I got it to do streams off of and so far is not doing a good job).

I love my phone though. I was really doubtful of getting a smartphone at first but I figured I would have to get one eventually. And oh my gosh I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. xD

Whats so nice is I can surf the internet on it. :D I can totally check all my emails and messages before I even get out of bed! OH GOD I feel so lazy now. xD

I'm sure going to miss my old phone though (if only for its superior batter life xD 3 days on my Samsung Convoy vs. 1 Day or less on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus) 

That makes Fergie go "Ehhhhhh....."

Cruizn' down Memory Lane

So, BGN went on a little trip up to Espanola yesterday. :D

I went back to my parents home to get a few things to bring back down to Rio Rancho. I mostly went to get my SimCity 4 Rush Hour disc but I did get a few other things. xD However, there were some things that I wanted to bring that didn't fit in my car >:

For Example, my first El Camino! D: I MISS IT (even if doesn't run well xD).

and my big FAT KITTY LIYA! Oh shes sooooo fat xD She's such a snugglely kitty too.

Some other things that I would like to bring are all my old sketches. Man, I have a BUTT LOAD of them. xD And they're just laying all over my old room too so I need to do something with them.

So those were a few of my more recent sketches. Now, the older, the good stuff (or horrible stuff xD), the HOLY GRAIL of BGN, is in this Office Depot Box. In this box you'll find all my first sketches of all my characters and my first attempts of drawing anthro characters. Its strange but I really like all these old sketches waaaaaaaaaaaaay more than all my newer work. xD

Whenever I get a chance I'm going to bring them down and scan every one in. Maybe even repost a few of them. There's some really good stuff in there that I'd like to come back to.

So thats all for today. For now I'm going to go play SimCity 4. :D

Sick and Drawing


(Okay, moving on xD)

So, I've been sick these past few days. Think I may a cold but HOLY COW it knocked me out of the loop. I stayed on my bed for most of the day Wednesday. While I was in bed I decided to doodle in one of my many empty sketch books that I've collected over the years (Poor things, never getting used xD).

So to start off I started to doodle one of my first characters, Mike. He's a lizard/alien guy (just like most of my guys xD) who's a secret agent for a CIA/MI6 agency on a far off planet (think James Bond and Han Solo).

Its been a while since I've drawn him so I was trying to update his look (all my sketches on the right side of the pic). On the left side of the page we see Felix and Rex (and possibly Vonce in the back).

The next page we have more (or all) of my first characters. These are the guys that I would draw day in day out back in High School (If I can I'll see if I can upload some of the old sketches of them).  Also, you may notice a guy on the right, Vincent. He was another of my alternate selfs (before Vonce believe it or not xD).

Next we have some sketches of Felix (trying figure out how to draw his head exactly) and some sketches of the new BGN kids, Biggens, Red, Jumeiras, and Draemen.

Thats all for today. D: GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! This new way of editing blog posts is confusing! I can't format these things like I use too---which is way everything looks strange today xD. Way to go Google >:P
