Jump back to January 2012 when the blog just started. Back then, 50 followers was a big deal to me. 100 followers was absolutely mind blowing! Over a year later as my art had improved substantially, I hit 1000 followers. I was completely dumbfounded by that. Never in my life did I think I could accomplish that.
January 2013, the blog is a year old and I’ve got just over 1000 followers. Things were going smoothly up until summer when my computer fried. Almost 4 months went by with no activity from me, yet I still kept getting followers. By the time I got back, I had almost hit 2000. Come Christmas, I hit the 2000 mark in less time than the first 1000 despite my computer troubles.
April 2014 with over two year of Ask the Apple Twins on tumblr… in just 4 months, I have hit 3000 followers. 4 MONTHS.That is significantly less time than the previous thousands… I’m absolutely baffled by this.
Thank you everyone; followers new and old, for sticking with me and showing your support for me. You’re all wonderful people and I wouldn’t have gotten this far without any of you.

Thank you all for 3000 followers!
Hey, well done on 3000! Ya’ deserve them all <3
((A truly stunning commission from Dimwitdog, as usual Berry is gorgeous as hell, but also as usual for Dim it is highly NSFW.
*Click the image above to view the whole pic, BE WARNED IT IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK, if you don’t mind that definitely click it*))
((I said I would make something from the bases I did :P
This is also trialling ALOT of new techniques for colouring and shading; this is the first time I have used the watercolour tool and done any “real” painting, also I tried different methods with the mane and tail highlights.
I will just make the point, neither of them are fat. Berry has an average build, except for a fine ass, and Colgate has an average build all over.
ANY ACCUSATIONS OF EITHER OF THEM BEING FAT OR UNFIT WILL BE IGNORED OR MOCKED, ITS GONE ON FOR TOO LONG.))
Suddenly Berry Punch
Ich warte auf dich - am Ende der NachtWilder Wein - nur eine TraubeWilder Wein - und bitter wie Schnee
Ich warte auf dich - am Ende der Nacht
I wait for you - at the end of the night
Wild wine - only one grape
Wild wine - and bitter like snow
I wait for you - at the end of the night

Mmmmm… such a beautiful scent and texture! Very nice growing conditions. Dirt’s maybe very slightly too acidic, but these will still taste fantastic!
Hey there, everypony! It is I, officialberrypunch. Tumblr nobody and only slightly famous in the Berry Punch community.
So, as you can probably tell, I love Berry Punch. She’s cute, the fandom made her a really lovable cutie, and it’s so much fun to draw her! Here are some of my drawings I’ve done of her.
Yeah, I know. Doesn’t look like much.
However, during my annoying posting of Berry Punch headcanons and crappy sketching, I somehow captured the attention of some of tumblr’s biggest Berry Punch fans, like richfoxsketches and shadowyberry (nsfw)! I even got to talk to my idol Goldenmdragon, the moderator/artist behind berrypunchreplies!
The biggest fan that I met, however, is Chainrayen. On tumblr, he’s known as datsweetberrypunch. We talked over Berry posts and eventually started talking outside of tumblr as well. We clicked instantly! It’s great having a buddy who loves an underrated drunken horse just as much as me. I also learned he makes vectors! The banner above features two of his pieces of art.
I was skyping with him one day and out of curiousity, I looked in his Skype info. (Well, not really curiousity. He changes his name and icon on Skype just about every 5 seconds, so I wanted to assure I was indeed speaking to him.) And what do ya know?! Our birthdays are 2 days apart!
This got me thinking. Chain and I are always talking about how under-appreciated Berry Punch is in the fandom. She’s always just a gross, alcoholic joke. But we thought that she could be more than that. Plus, we always get super excited when there’s new Berry Punch art on the web. So, here’s where this contest comes in!
The task is for you, dear reader, to make a birthday gift for Chain and I. Of course, the theme is 100% Berry fucking Punch. Make a drawing, sculpt a figure, knit a Punched-out sweater, do some cosplay! Hell, write a fanfic if you want (I don’t advise it, but if you can’t do anything else, by all means)! We’ll be the judges. In return, you’ll be expanding the world of Berry Punch c: Oh yeah, and we have prizes.
- A (non-complex) request from twixie-answers-mod! That’s a big fucking deal. Do you ever see the shit he draws? He’s fucking amazing. Plus, he usually just does commissions, so this is like goddamn highway robbery.
- A (also non-complex) request from rodscorpion! This is also a big deal. Rodrick is only four-fucking-teen but he’s already a master of digital and traditional art. And he loves drawing humanized or normal ponies.
- Your winning art (whatever it is) gets featured on my page, askhumanberrypunch's page, and my fan art blog, berrypunched. This is really cool if you want publicity!! I have 500+ peeps following me, plus 100 more on Ask Human Berry Punch, so take the opportunity!
- I’ll follow you (if I’m not already)!
- Ask Human Berry Punch will follow you and feature you in an ask (if you want).
- [more prizes coming soon. If you’re an artist and you’d like to offer prizes as well, please contact me!]
3 other honorable mentions:
- I’ll follow you!
- Featured on all the previous blogs I mentioned.
- Must be submitted to me between the dates of Saturday, April 5th, 2014 12:00 AM EST (tomorrow) and Saturday, May 24th, 2014 12:00 AM EST (the day in between Chain’s birthday and my birthday). I’d appreciate it if you’s place it directly in berrypunched's submit box!
- One entry per artist, please!
- Any type of art is acceptable.
- NSFW submissions are allowed. However, blatant sex is not. Please use good judgement, these will be feautured on my main blog! For example: An anthro Berry Punch with extreme cleavage is not encouraged. However, it is allowed. An anthro Berry Punch masturbating is not allowed.
- You don’t have to be following anyone. However, I’d appreciate it if you’d follow datsweetberrypunch <3 (Following him will not change your chances in anyway, positive nor negative).
- Judging may take a while! Please be patient. Both Chain and I have to agree on our favorite. Also, we live thousands of miles away from each other. We may have complications with technology, school, work, etc…
- [to be continued…]
Good luck, and happy Punching!
Best contest ever!!!!!! I’m always one to encourage the arts! Totally not ‘cause its about me, heh… honest :P
((Right! I think this will be the last post on this for awhile.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison and an overlay comparison.
Final thoughts on the contrast between them? Is it enough?
I think I’ll make something out of these to compensate abit for all this OOC stuff. I’ll get back to in character and proper updates ^^))
