Hey guys, It's been a while.
Unfortunately Ive not really done much art that I can post here thanks to the insane workload of my second year of University. We've been tasked with making a Data Visualiser using OpenGL and C++. And it's intense.
However. I do have some cool stuff to show you, some of my best work yet actually. But I cant show you it yet. It's under an NDA, so Im afraid you'll all have to be patient ;)
I've also launched a Web Page as part of my portfolio for applying for jobs n shit www.phantombadger.com
So check it out if you like!

Im not dead, but Uni has taken all my free time

Lots of love

Hey guys!
If you still watch me for the pony art and all that, I'm sure you're disappointed that I've not done much lately.

You know what you should do ?
You should totally watch this guy
:iconvisualizationbrony:

Seriously
Watch him.

If you dont I'll cut you...


LOTS OF LOVE

GAWD.
I've been meaning to redo my logo for a while,
finally got around to it :L

So my dA ID is the colourful version, might upload the monochromatic version at some point c:

Give me Llamas.
This is completely unrelated to my friend :iconturbocharge0: having more than me...

Promise.
IM AT UNI.
IN MY DORM ROOM.
ON MY COMPUTER.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
In the space of like 2.5~3 days, my recent Soul Eater wallpaper has gotten more favourites than the cover art for TheLivingTombstone's Discord Remix got in 1.5 years...
Jesus.
You guys must really fucking love Soul Eater xD
Welp, Im back from BUCK 2013. And it was fucking awesome :)

I stayed in a Hostel room with AcousticBrony, Bronyfied, TeiThePony, Brock (:iconprozenconns:), MyLittleVisuals, Fezzy (:iconjrenon:), and a few others. It was great fun, really enjoyed it, got to meet a lot of my online friends, including Tombstone, did a few art challenge things, met a few fans, a load of fun shit like that :D

The Charity Auction was a bit of a disaster unfortunately. My art didn't get auctioned in the Charity auction because they ran out of time, so it went to a silent auction in the Convention lobby, the highest bid was 300, turns out, that guy couldnt pay it, and they didnt keep a record of the previous bids, so they couldnt sell it.
I think they ended up selling it for 150 to someone on the Sunday xD
But I got shitfaced drunk Sunday night and ended up wearing only my underpants in the Hostel lobby at 5:30am, so it wasnt all bad ;D

I took a few pictures, so if you'd like to see them, you can check 'em out here: phantombadger.imgur.com/all/

It's actually given me quite a bit of inspiration to do some more art, so we'll see ;) Might even pick up a pencil and paper again

Today has been a very long but great day :)

1) I got my A2 Exam results back, marking the end of my college years;
A - Computing
B - Maths
C - Media

2) Got Accepted into the University I wanted to get into, The University of Derby where I'm going to study a 4 year course on Computer Games Programming

3) My Parents bought me a painting I spotted a while back in a  restaurant and loved (Im talking back in February time), and it now resides proudly on my wall; dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60…

Was good day c:
Im finally getting round to clearing up my messages,
I finally get through all the comments, and then break down into tears as I see 150 watchers I have not thanked.
:C

For those unaware, I take pride on being able to say I have thanked every person who's watched me individually. However after making it through 10 of the 150, I dont know if I can do them all in such a heavy concentration ._.
I'll try, but on the off chance I dont;
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO STILL COMMENTS ON MY SHIT AND WATCHES ME. IS RLY GOOD.
<33333

-Josh
It's official guys, I'm going to BUCK 2013 ;)

Alas, it wont be as a vendor, but I will be submitting a piece to a charity auction if they have one, more on that closer to the time.
Hope to see you all there C:

Back when I first started doing Art, I told myself, that no matter what the circumstances, if Art ever stopped being enjoyable and instead became a chore I'd have to force myself to do; then I'd stop doing it.
And I'm afraid that time has come.

This was probably already apparent to the most of you due to my inactivity, but I'll be stopping art for a while, how long you ask ? I havent got a clue, I guess until I can find the motivation to make more.
I'll still check DeviantART and chat to you all via comments and whatnot, and if anyone wants to talk outside of dA my skype is MrPhantomBadger ;)

I'd like to express a huge and sincere thank you to each and every one of you, I've loved doing art this past year and a half, and it's really changed the way I view myself and the world. I never in a million years thought I would get as 'big' as I have (1k watchers is big, shuttup) and I couldnt have done it all without you.
Thank you all <3

I will be back....
HELLOOOOOO~
God it's been a while since I've done anything here... Suppose I owe you all a general Update.
First of all, apologies for my lack of stuff lately, I've been generally unmotivated with the lack of Pony episodes, the huge amount of computing coursework and whatnot.
In terms of the advancement of my education, I've recently applied for Student accommodation and Student Finances at University, so hopefully all that will work out and I'll be set for Uni.
I've ordered mine and my Girlfriend's tickets to Download 2013, and now Im just waiting for the coach company to email me so I can book those tickets too :p
My Game Grumps shirt has arrived so I can be an uber-nerd with Brock at BUCK.

All in all, life is good right now, I cant complain, but Im sorry I've neglected dA a bit :c
I love you guys <3
-Josh
So this is apparantly a thing by PhantomBadger
Dunno if anyone else gets my art for that category, some other wallpaper artists said they've seen some other ones of mine too, so idk :s
Still, its pretty awesome

ALSO I DID ART. IM NOT DEAD :D
DFTBA
-Josh
Im not dead, I promise.
Just the transition out of the exam period is a lot busier than I had expected


Okay I lied, DmC came out and I've been playing the fuck outta that on PC, as well as social activities and getting into a relationship, It's left me with little time to vector stuff :c
I'll do something soon...Promise <3
DFTBA
-Josh

EDIT:
Just finished DmC last night, so good :D
I'll see if I can get that Twilight wallpaper done tonight in celebration to hold you all over whilst I finish vectoring my collab with :iconprozenconns:
I AM ACTING LIKE SMALL RUSSIAN GIRL RIGHT NOW.
WHICH IS WEIRD BECAUSE IM BRITISH.
AND HAVE A PENIS.

WELL THIS JUST HAPPENED by PhantomBadger

WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY IS; THANK YOU. THANK YOU ALL SO SO MUCH
Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I love you all <3
I WILL have a celebration vector, which is a collab with :iconprozenconns: done sometimes, but exams are limiting my free time.

HUGE thank you to my 1000th Watcher; :icontaigalife:

Just finished watching it, overall I think it was really impressive :) Some bits were a tad cringe-worthy, but it was still very good. It was lovely to see people I knew like PJ and Tombstone get featured c:
Managed to spot a few of my things too ;) A wallpaper I made for Tombstone is in the background of his interview on his computer, the cover art for the Brony Metal Medley is shown briefly and you actually see me cheering for PJ at a few of the BUCK segments. I am also in the credits under the big 'Thank You' header due to Kickstarter (Josh "PhantomBadger" Leland)
What did you lot think of the documentary ?
