Biography
My name is William Alyn, and I currently reside in the rural outskirts of Topeka Kansas; a quiet, peaceful area of farmland and countryside.
My interest in art has spanned most of my lifetime, manifesting itself through childish crayon and colored pencil drawings in my early years and developing to full blown passion by my early teens. I honed my skills by working through the curriculum of Art Instruction Schools, and afterward by teaching myself to use watercolors, which I continue to practice and improve upon.

In late Autumn of 2011, I was introduced to My little Pony: Friendship Is Magic by my brother, who insisted that it was remarkably good despite certain stigmas surrounding the franchise. I was, of course, hesitant about watching a show full of little candy-colored ponies, magic, and rainbows, but upon foregoing my apprehension and watching a few episodes I found myself unapologetically hooked. The characters were brilliant and full of personality, the world was vibrantly depicted without being too sugar-coated, and the stories told in each episode were not only fun and enjoyable, but surprisingly coherent. As a person of artistic inclination I could not help but be inspired by the show and its unexpected following. So I started doing simple pencil sketches of the characters, as well as a few paintings on my DSi, then moved on to watercolor paintings and started posting them here on deviantART.

It may sound silly, but I would say that through drawing ponies, using styles and painting techniques that I wouldn't normally use, and generally working outside my established comfort zone, I've become a better artist.

Hello there! Just passing by to suggest you to check this image: fav.me/d7biwsf

I believe that it meets your quality standards and also could be a good oportunity for the artist to get a bit more known while on a (seemingly) friendly environment

Please, support the Combined Brony Effort Petition going on to remove the unwarranted Cease & Desist Order by Hasbro to bring back Jan Animations (Button Mash, Picture Perfect Pony, Do Not Mine at Night)!!! 

www.change.org/petitions/hasbr… Every signature counts! 

It would be amazing if you could inform all your group members via a journal as well so that they become aware of the issue.

Fight for your right to fan work!!!

My work has been accepted all the time in the group, why now is it not being accepted due to the quality? Not accepting work because the quality doesn't meet your standards is a horrible thing to say.
It can really put the artist down and hurt them.
Thank you very much.
