Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) by AdrianImpalaMata
Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)
Hugo: "Wow... Peso, you've grown since the last time we've met!"
Peso: "I've been working out, Hugo..."
Pinto: "Whoa..."
Kwazii: "Wha—?!"

Had a WHOLE LOTTA fun with this sketch (a sequel to "I Wan'na Be Like You"). Originally, it was going to be just Peso and Hugo seeing each other for the first time since the Great Penguin Race... then Pinto was added in. And then Captain Barnacles. Then Kwazii... And finally, Tunip. This was one of those moments where I wanted to expand on my original ideas and how I envisioned it - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But THIS - oh, boy, - this worked out PERFECTLY! Definitely my favorite right there because of how it came together.

A Very Vegimal Thanksgiving Dinner by AdrianImpalaMata
A Very Vegimal Thanksgiving Dinner
Tunip: (in Vegimalese) ...and right behind me is this GINORMOUS turkey!
Shellington: Jumping jellyfish, that's big!
Captain Barnacles: ...Maybe a little too big.
Kwazii (looking around): Ooh...

Shot this before our family's Thanksgiving feast which is occurring right now as I'm typing this up... This is the first time Tunip has been in one of my photographs, and being the Octopod's cook, I thought it'd be best to introduce him here.

I Wan'na Be Like You
Peso dreams of being like the fastest and strongest penguin in Antartica, Hugo. Started this one VERY LATE into last night and cleaned it up just recently. It was fun drawing Peso as a tall, strong penguin - that one I'll post separately very soon. There's also a second part to this drawing which I have an idea for but haven't started yet, but I'll get to it soon!

For your MLP album art, you should do a Turn Down For What :) (Smile) 
AdrianImpalaMata Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't do pony album covers anymore as I have left the brony fandom. Thanks for the suggestion, though ;)

For some reason your icon makes it look like Shelly is wearing a white lab coat. It's amazing.
AdrianImpalaMata Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry for the late reply!

Actually, I got the picture from the Brown Bag Labs blog. I only cropped part of that in a circle.
