Hi there, I'm Pa (AKA Plant-kun).
I'm one of the concept artists for Legends of Equestria; I specialise in environments, although I have been known to dabble with NPC design.
I like long walks and listening to the rain ... sorry, wrong bio.
I came to Brony-dom via the Cheezburger network, of all things. Scrolling through the comments, a lot of people were arguing about the relative merits of MLP. I decided to watch an episode ('just one, mind you. Oh, it's a two-parter, well okay then. Two. Maybe one one more')... you know how it goes. Some time later, I saw an ad for concept artists on Equestria Daily, and the rest, as they say, is history.
I get bored easily, so I have several hobbies: I'm training in the Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do, learning to play the harp and ocarina, practising my writing and storytelling, painting characters from my novel (a constant work in progress), learning German, reading and thinking about philosophy and mythology, learning about science and the universe, and I've recently been inspired to make my own plushies.
When I write it out like that, that's a lot
On top of all of that, I work full-time as a software tester (which isn't even as interesting as it sounds), take illustration commissions and do the occasional fine art painting.
One day, I'd like to get my novel published (got to finish it first!), have my own gallery show and run a marathon.Best pony:

I've made some great, albeit strange, friends in the team, and I'm looking forward to seeing everypony's reactions when the game's finally finished.
Until then, I'll be over here, drawing.
