Man this took a long time! Awhile ago Fiddle posted an artist challenge to draw your oc in various styles. And I didn’t realize how hard it would be to transition from one to another. But on the flip side this really did help me address multiple issues I’ve been having lately with spirit and allowed me to experiment and find different styles I might like to go back to in the future! Who knows I might pick this up again and do some other styles!
Ahhhh I couldn’t wait to post this! Right now I’m doing the draw your OC in other artist’s style challenge to get myself back in the groove of drawing Spirit. But I really had fun trying Holivi’s style out! Felt extremely lively to work in! I’ll show off the other styles soon!
It’s not too late to wish you all a Happy Halloween is it ^^? Spirit’s family got hit by the ponymon craze and had to jump in on the action!
Spirit’s very sorry about the recent delay! She mentioned some plane trouble and getting herself lost on a recent trip. Spooky.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by for the cloudsdale cafe interview! (if you missed it I’ll try to link it when its posted!)
Also special thanks to Imaage for this Spirit picture! She’s so whimsical in this one, I love it! Imaage even posted a spiffy time lapse.
Hello everypony, this is a SIGNAL BOOST!
My name is AJ (My personal blog is Doodleloser), you also might know me from CloverCoin.com or DA. I was even at BronyCon 2013 this year handing out free buttons and magnets to promote my website and artwork!
On August 21st 2013 my google email was hacked and used to get into my tumblr account and dropbox account and delete all of my blogs. Including my OC Pony ask blog, Cafe Delights!
Because my blog was deleted I lost all of my content and followers. Luckily for me I have all my artwork backed up on external hard drive. But I have lost all of my following and networking. I work as a freelance artist and making a living from the merchandise I sell in my shop and by commission artwork! I had worked for 3 long years to earn my large following and to be able to survive off of my commission work. Without that support from my viewers I will be in a lot of trouble very soon if I can’t get back to work.
All I’m asking of everyone is to just help me out and reblog this. I just want to get my name back out there since most people have no idea what happened to my blog. When a blog is deleted there is no notification for anyone, so they might think they’re still following me but I’m not updating. I just want to let everyone know I’m back! I’m here! There is absolutely no money or work involved. Just simply spread the word.
Please help by reblogging this and help me get back my follow list! I would appreciate it so much! Thank you so much for reading, I really look forward to blogging and drawing for you all again! Cafe delights is going to have a brand new fresh start, I’ll begin with uploading some of my favorite artworks then begin official story blogging of Cafe Delights and all of the OC ponies who thrive on this blog!
Mocha Delight can’t wait to see you all at Cafe Delights again and hear about everything she’s missed while she’s been gone.
Please and thank you for your support. <3

The Griffus Empire
My research turns toward the north horizons of the Known World, beyond Equestria frontiere.
The great Griffus is, from our knowledge, one of the oldest and most successful civilzation. Built in the War for Midgard, which last for millenias, way long before Equestria gets discovered. Griffin emerged victorious and claimed the norse lands as theirs.
From those ancient times, we’re told that griffin linked themselves to a legendary creature known as Fenrir, the Great wolf. He is ever since their emblem and symbolize their strength.
[Picture 1] A griffon is depicted as a multimorphologic being, they possess a felin lower body, and their upper is generaly the one of a bird of prey. Some think that hippogriffs and griffin are long lost cousins. Note that even if the lower body is cat like, they actualy lay eggs.
Griffin are hunters and fishers by nature and by necessity. Their cat body can’t sustain nor grow properly without essential elements found in meat.
From their heritage, three creatures are representative of the empire : The Wolf represents strength, the Lion inspires courage and the Eagle is associate to knowledge and cleverness.
[Picture 2] The actual Emperor of Griffus is named Or’Odrynn the 3rd, his reign started almost three thousand years ago. He personaly assisted princess Luna and Celestia during the last moments of the War of Discord to overthrow the Lord of chaos.
To give an idea of his stature, from my commanding officer witness, he’s by far taller than princess Celestia.
The Emperor is designated as the avatar of Fenrir, as such he disposes of tremendous mistycal powers to guide his people through this world. As long as an offspring don’t see the day, like Alicorns, the life span of an avatar is indefinite.
[Picture 3] Our half-cat, half-bird friends possess a lot of different features in colors and forms, but there is also some similarities.
The first family is the most common : Eaglegriffin. They usualy have an athletic body and are oftenly related to strength.
Then we have Hawkgriffin. they can be recognized easily by their complet lack of fluff from their feathering. They’re agile by nature, compared to the average. I’m going to make some ponies grumpy by this statement, but until today, hawkgriffin own the highest flying top speed records ever registered.
The last and rarest are Owlgriffin. They have the most peculiar body which make them easy to spot. They possess large ears and deep black eyes, their plumage is more dense and most of all, their talons are composed differently, 2 front fingers istead of 3, and 2 thumbs. Through the ages, owls were oftenly refered as wise advisors and knowledge keepers. Oh and yeah, they can rotate their head 270 degrees … creepy !
[Picture 4] Our last point concerns the military composition of Griffus.
You have to know that griffin are at ease on two and four legs. The most common guards that you will notice across the country are (1)Skywards, dexterous spear or sword users, their basic equipment also count a crossbow.
(2)Squalls are the templars of the Empire, heavy armored and weaponized, their trainning is way more instense than casual guards. Their duty consists to protect the Emperor and complet complicated missions from his personal call.
Finally, (3)Stormcallers are the magical cast of the army, even if unicorns are born with an inner talent for magic, other races know how to master it. Even if this gift is rare amongst griffin, close links to the wind elements have made those wizards masters in controlling the sky, which on the contrary to our, is wild by nature.
