About Me

Deviant ID Icon by :icondragonademetal: DragonaDeMetal. :)

My name is Sorelstrasz. Most people call me Sorel, though. I am a digital artist that focuses primarily on MLP related artwork. The inspiration for my artwork comes from the music I listen to. I hear the songs in my head and my imagination creates the stories. I do my best to recreate those stories into artwork. I am from Indianapolis, Indiana in the United States. Believe it or not, but all the artwork I have made is made in Gimp with just a mouse and keyboard. It would be cool to learn other programs like SAI. I havve it, but I'm still a beginner with that program. Hopefully not for long.

In the past year, I have made more leaps with quality in my art, but sometimes the sacrifice is also the time it takes to make something new. I even went out of my way to celebrate my undergrad graduation with TGBjerga. She is perhaps the best of friends I have made here and it was great to spend three weeks in New Zealand. Since I came back, I have struggled to get into a musical career. That changed during the late spring of 2016 when I could go to Oklahoma City University with a full ride scholarship for my Master's Degree. I humbly accepted and now reside in the heart of Oklahoma. This is where I will be for two years. After that? I am still deciding. Maybe moving back home to Indiana? I would love to move to New Zealand, though. We'll have to see what the future brings. :)

A compilation of my experience with Court of Stars 11 this past week. Fuck that place lol
So outside of playing art, I play World of Warcraft. This weekend I spent some time doing some mythic+ dungeons and had a really hard time in a +15 one. I did a little editing to enhance the viewing experience so you can enjoy seeing Sorel experience frustration!

One of the things that I personally find difficult is saving things until they are fully complete. I have an idea, I start working on it. I share what I have so far. Maybe not to everyone, but to friends. Some things I feel need to be hidden until they are truly finished. Maybe I could bypass some of this by posting WIP's specifically for Patreon donors. At least that way, those who see it can be rewarded that way.

I also have another idea for a picture. Octavia's picture is on hold until I can work on blood some more. I would share what this one would be, but I want to show some restraint.
Small break from art this weekend. Resuming during this coming week :)
There is something about flying that just makes it unlike anything else I could experience.

I love your concept of Solar Flare and I have a question. Might I use her in a fanfiction I am working on? You will get credit for the design, of course, but I need a better name for Nightmare corrupted Celestia than "Nightmare Sola" ... that just sounds awful in it's own right.
