WLC fundraiser art progression by fyre-flye
WLC fundraiser art progression
So, if you saw my latest journal, "MLP rewards for helping animals!" you know I'm helping with a fundraiser for my good friends at Wildlife Learning Center for badly needed veterinary equipment. This is the art I created for the fundraiser, featuring some of the animals they care for at WLC. Boomer the Siberian Lynx, Cleo the Fennec Fox, Lola the Two-Toed Sloth, Danali the Bald Eagle, Kingston the Squirrel Monkey, Zeus the blind Screech Owl and others!  Plus, a little look into how this piece progressed, from thumbnail to final color. These days, I don't get to draw as much as I used to, so getting to do a full piece like this is a special treat. Hope you like!

If you haven't already checked out the fundraiser, please do. There are rewards for donating that feature this art, as well as perks especially for My Little Pony fans!

Remember last week when I said:

"Very soon - this week, most likely - WLC will be holding an Indiegogo fundraiser for much needed vet equipment for their animals. Tier rewards will be specifically geared towards fans of My Little Pony. I'll be posting about it in the next few days, along with some art I created just for the event." ??


Well, it's up and running! If you are a fan of MLP, or a fan of my art (for either of which, I thank you!!) please take a peek at the campaign and see if their are any tier rewards you may like as a thank-you for a donation!

MLP tier rewards include:
- signed Funko figures of the Mane 6, Derpy and more
- Funko Twilights and Discords signed by none other than Tara Strong and John DeLancie!!
- OOAK pencil drawings of Fluttershy with WLC's animals
- outgoing voice mail from Tara and John
- a party with MLP writers

- AAAAANNNND - so many people expressed interest in last week's auction for a sketch of your OC, we're now offering raffle tickets to win one of 3 chances to have a drawing of your OC (pony or otherwise)

We're also offer thank you rewards featuring some art I put together just for this fundraiser - featuring animals that WLC cares for. For just $1-$20 you can get a digital desktop, postcards, buttons and other stuff of this:

***UPDATED UPDATE!***
Bidding is closed! Super special thanks to exe2001 mop12retruns for putting in the highest bid at $3650 $3628. Your generosity will help all the animals at WLC. You rock! Special thanks to Latent-Logic as well!

Heads up: the Old Gray Mare show is currently holding a charity auction - winner will received a drawing from me of their OC! Proceeds of the auction will go to my very good pals at The Wildlife Learning Center.

You can find info on the auction and a link HERE!

And make sure to tune into The Old Grey Mare podcast later today - my friend, voice of Twilight and many of your other fav cartoon characters will be co hosting, and I'll be making an appearance as well to talk about... who knows? Tune in and see.

Very soon - this week, most likely - WLC will be holding an Indiegogo fundraiser for much needed vet equipment for their animals. Tier rewards will be specifically geared towards fans of My Little Pony. I'll be posting about it in the next few days, along with some art I created just for the event.

I can't believe it's been a whole year since I've updated my journal! Sorry for being so out of touch. As usual, my lame excuse is that I'm busy - but for a not-lame reason, at least. If you haven't already heard, I'm directing my first feature film. Its an animated comedy based on the myth of Medusa. We're in the early phases of development at Sony Pictures Animation, and I'm in a daily state of shock and gratitude for the opportunity.

But that's not why I'm posting!

Ironically, and embarrassingly, the very last journal I posted - a whole year ago - was to announce the same thing. My pals at the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, CA are holding their annual fundraiser on Oct. 25 from 4-7 and I'd like to extend an invitation to all my DA friends!

And just like last year, I'll be there to chat and sign stuff. So bring your MLP or Powerpuff goodies that are in need of a name scribbled on them! You can purchase tickets here. Please spread the word!

This small zoo offers a chance to see many exotic animals up close and much more personal than your average zoo. And at fundraisers like the Safari Social, you get the special opportunity to actually interact with many of these animals! You can pet a fennec fox, feed a porcupine or meet a sloth! Plus, My Little Pony fans will get to see the special animals named for MLP characters Angel and Tank! To see the kinds of animals you'll get to see, click here.

Those who've been following me for the last few years may know what WLC is all about, but in case you don't, here's my little spiel:

The Wildlife Learning Center  in Sylmar cares for a few dozen wild and exotic animals and treats them as "ambassadors" to help teach the public about wildlife conservation. What is so wonderful about WLC, is that many of the animals in there care are rescues. Many were illegally kept as pets and were either turned over or turned in to WLC for proper care. Others were animals born in the wild, but injury or acclimation to humans kept them from being able to survive in their natural habitats. Still others were exotic pets who grew too large or otherwise difficult to care for by their original owners. Without WLC, all of these rescued animals would be seriously ill or dead.

As a non-profit organization, WLC relies on the public to raise the funds they need to give these amazing animals the care they need, from proper nutrition and habitats to the best veterinary care. Coming for a visit will not only be fun, it will be for a good cause!

Lauren Faust
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United States
I write and I draw, but at the end of the day, I'm mostly a story teller and character creator. You may know me best as Creative Steward and Executive Producer of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but I was also a story artist on Powerpuff Girls and the head writer on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. My DA page tends to be rather quiet, but it mostly features things I used to do when I had time to work on personal projects like designing dolls and stuff.

I know you don't care for MLP anymore ever since Twilight became an alicorn but I have a question in regards to one of your earlier comments:

"Luna was no longer present, jealousy buried her inside Nightmare Moon."

Does that mean Nightmare Moon is Luna's jealousy manifested into a separate entity to possess her? (Luna did imply this with her "I've missed you so much big sister") Or is she still just Luna corrupted? I kinda need to know.
