Father and Daughter by RizCifra
Father and Daughter

If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second, you can’t remember where you are
Just open your window and follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star

I believe the light that shines on you will shine on you forever
And though I can’t guarantee there’s nothing scary hiding under your bed
I’m gonna stand guard like a postcard of a golden retriever
And never leave ‘til I leave you with a sweet dream in your head

I’m gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you’ll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

Trust your intuition
It’s just like goin’ fishin’
You cast your line and hope you get a bite
But you don’t need to waste your time
Worryin’ about the marketplace
Try to help the human race
Struggling to survive its harshest night

I’m gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you’ll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

I’m gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you’ll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Loved his daughter more than I love you

"Father and Daughter"

-Paul Simon

From, like, a month or two ago.  Sad attempt at colouring a doodle from, like, 2009. 

Filly Twilight Sparkle... thing
[EDIT 07/02/14]  Updating the file since I realized I never properly did that here, and I feel bad about how the other one looked considering I'm using it as an example for commissions.  Mostly some colour changes and got rid of the letterboxing.  This ones a little jerkier than the other, but mainly because it's also a little longer.  Now it's the 20-second clip without the missing parts in between.  Still looks a bit off, though.  Sorry =/

Original Tumblr post and description:…

I wasn't going to upload this here, but I've still been getting a few messages about it, so here it is (This one's actually a little different than the one I submitted to my Tumblr account and a little lower quality unfortunately). I apologize if you've already seen this multiple times!

It's just a silly little unfinished thing I was making a few months ago and then stopped. This part of the sequence was mostly in a couple of weeks. I'm likely not going to finish the project anymore, so I guess it wouldn't hurt to upload a little clip. This isn't everything I did get to finish, but I'm a little reluctant to include more on the off chance that I do end up trying to finish it one day. Also, the rest looks completely horrible (Yes, even worse than this does).

Erm... It kind of jumps at times and moves a bit fast/slow at times. Photoshop would only let me import 500 frames max on this (and even then, it crashes), so a good chunk of the frames got cut out. Sorry about that.

Sorry for the absence. I've been busy getting some things ready for Anime Expo this coming weekend.

And no, I didn't intend for this to look so anime-ish. It's apparently just how I draw ponies. Well, it's the easiest way for me to draw them. =\

Q: What programs do you use?

A: I mainly use Photoshop and sometimes PaintTool Sai. The main program I use for animations and colouring is Photoshop, though.

Would any of you be interested in GIF/animation commissions? Just curious...

Random Notes...

[Commissions] Soon!

[Trades] Only with friends =]

[Requests] Sorry, but I don't usually take on requests. I do listen to suggestions, though! Check this journal for info:…

Hi, I'm Riz (pronounced Reeeeeeeeeeeeese... sort of). I'm mostly boring and unimpressive. I like music, food, traveling, video games, comic books, sports (especially football), and sleeping. Oh, and PONIES.

This and my Tumblr are the only galleries I use. They both mainly consist of pony drawings, so you might not want to watch this account if you are expecting other things =)


Note regarding art usage:

If you'd like to use any of the fan art I have uploaded in this gallery, please feel free! I upload to this gallery to share with anyone who is also a fan of MLP: FiM, so long as it's not for anything inappropriate or illegal. If the drawing was commissioned by an individual, however, I request that you ask that person for permission before using =) His/her username should be listed in the image description.

Aww, I'm a bit sad that the old goal got deleted when I took this down. =C

Ignore that outrageous goal, haha. I'm not that greedy. I'm just raising points so I can buy subscriptions or other dA things for other artists, and to use for kiriban prizes =)

I appreciate any donations, but only if you can afford it! I already feel kind of bad putting this up ^^;

You must be logged in to donate.
