Do you love the InkPotts Animatics? Have you always wanted your Original Character (OC) in the background of one? Well now's your chance!

For the next two weeks, we are holding a competition for you; our fans, to enter an OC that will be in the running to become a background pony in our upcoming animatic; I Know Those Eyes/This Man is Dead, the 5th Monte Cristo animatic!

All you have to do, is draw your best OC MLP Character in a Gala dress or tux. It doesn't matter what medium you use to draw it, and it doesn't matter how skilled you are at drawing, you will still be eligible to win a place.

To submit your design, post it as a comment on this Contest Journal.

Or if you don't happen to have an account, you can always make one, or send an email with the image attached to: inkpotts@outlook.com

THE RULES:

  • Only one OC entry per person

  • No Alicorn OC's, pick between a unicorn or pegasus if you use their design

  • Other species such as Crystal Ponies, Bat Ponies, Zebras, Griffins, Hippogriffs, small dragons or other MLP races will be considered, but only in small numbers.

  • Your OC is more likely to be chosen if it does feature a Gala outfit, but it is not necessary for you to draw one. A Gala outfit will be drawn for them, but will be very basic and reused for other background ponies.

(The design should fit in with the setting of the animatic (1800s Europe, at a ball/gala).  

There will be 4 winners, and 10 finalists. Though more finalists will be chosen if needed.

The winners will have their OC's directly interact with the main characters, while the finalists will be featured in the background crowds.

The contest runs for two weeks and will be ending on the 4th of July. (GMT +9:30)

Winners and Finalists will be chosen by My sister and I based on our personal preferences and how well the character works in the scene.

And don't worry if you don't win this time, we'll probably do this again the next time we need background ponies. So Good luck!

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask :)

Sometimes you don't get the joke until it's too late.
And the joke isn't funny anymore.
//yes there is a story behind this.
//shhhhhhh I'm just slow.

Hey all, have a ton of Pandoraverse art/concept art built up in my Sta.sh, figured I'd share again in another journal entry. Warning: Will contain some Sharknado shipping, other shipping, and some mild suggestive content, so if that ain't your bag, get outta dodge. Ready? Leggo

Brucie it's cold outside by Lopoddity <---Stormy has a long-furred pony ancestor in his family tree somewhere(*coughcough*possiblythesamespeciesasFlufflepuff*cough*), so he's a rare pony that gets an extra fluffy coat in the winter. It's good for snuggles-er, not that Bruce would know, or anything. Ahem.


Magnolia May by Lopoddity <---An early concept for my Rarijack Nextgen, Magnolia May. See kids? This is why we keep drawing til we get something that feels right, don't feel obligated to stick with your first concept!


Chance Encounter by Lopoddity <---Bruce is afraid of Cupcake, so I wondered what would happen if he met her giant bulldozer of a male counterpart, Beefcake. Bruce might have just peed himself a little
no cutiemarks cuz i'm lazy

Stormy Mood by Lopoddity<---Bruce and Stormy had a daughter together by Bruce magically turning female. Well, what if it had been Stormy instead? I think our sweet, fluffy hippie would turn into an absolute cranky temperamental monster. Fuck off with your kisses, Bruce, go get Stormy ice cream now

Nothin' wrong with a little bump and grind <---Sharknado tomfoolery, mildly suggestive. Pearlie ships it, they are Pearlie's OTP

Adults by Lopoddity<---Concept art for Adult Snickerdoodle and Oddball, not quite final. Mostly an exploration of their head shapes/body types (Odd gets Cupcake's earth pony stockiness)

Mako by Lopoddity<---I may have mentioned an alternate storyverse where Bruce and Pandora eventually had a kid, Mako Storm. Welp, here he is. He is a great big bag of angst and anger and mommy issues, because Pandora abandoned him and Bruce when Mako was very young. He is intelligent, cold, cunning, and ruthless, and has power over storms. He brings terrible storms wherever he goes, because his power is rooted in his emotions, so he's not really welcome anywhere. Mako is classified as extremely dangerous and should be avoided at all costs

The Best Thing by Lopoddity<---Bruce/Cupcake, my super secret OTP! They are together in the same universe that Mako exists in (you should probably be taking notes XD). I call it the Makoverse! Pandora and Bruce marry when they learn she's pregnant with Mako, but they aren't really happy together, and Pan suffers postpartum depression after her son is born. She abandons her family when Mako is about four years old. So life is pretty shitty for Bruce at this point, his wife is gone, his son is miserable, and his best friend Stormy is dead in this storyverse, killed in a weather factory explosion. Luckily Cupcake starts spending time with Bruce and Mako, trying to clean up Pan's mess...and over time, she and Bruce fall in love. It happens as they both struggle to cope with the terrible emotional aftermath of Pandora's abandonment, and a friendship and vulnerability forms between them, and poor Bruce is finally happy, with the person he least expected.

Mako hates his stepmother Cupcake, but Mako hates everybody, so whatever

I thank you in advance for participating, and GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!

Created at simplydevio.us
Update! Thank you everyone for spreading the word, but i think its time we should stop spreading the journal around since of course hes probably hidding and staying low for now. so I would advise now everyone to just keep an eye out for him. If he returns to Deviantart and he sends messages and such like he has done, please report him and dont interact with him. If he starts bugging you block him. Dont Make a journal out of it to scare him off for now on. Lets hope he gets arrested for everyones safety. Lets hope we get some news about it.

Thank you again everyone.


Pedo has been reported but didnt mention about being arrested. read this journal for info-  Pedo Located and Reported. NOTE: DO NOT report this criminal if he has not attacked you. He has already been reported and the victim has requested that nobody else attempt to do so for their own safety.
Proof that the victim does not want people who HAVE NOT been attacked by this guy to report him. --> http://comments.deviantart.com/1/541026725/3864687407

This journal is to demonstrate a new example of how to use the Skype Resolver. I would have added it to my previous journal, however it was long enough as it is and I will be linking this to it at the bottom as an Update to keep it short. 

This is a screenshot of a skype session from 6/20/2015. Same day that I'm posting this journal. 
The victim had previously commented on my Pedo Alert! journal, and returned to me with this screen capture. I then proceeded to instruct them on how to receive his IP, however by that time they had alrea


IF YOU GUYS ARE UNAWARE WHO THIS MAN IS PLEASE READ BELOW FOR THE INFO. NEW INFO HAVE BEEN ADDED. SCREENSHOTS OF THE NOTES SAYING TO JOIN AN ART COMMUNITY NAMED OAC IS NOT THE SAME MAN. OAC GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS SO I APOLOGIZE TO THEM FOR A BIG BIG MISUNDERSTANDING 

ALSO IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION TWO DEVIANTS HAVE TOLD ME THIS. ONE TOLD ME THE DEVIANTART STAFF HAS COMMENTED ON ONE OF THE BEWARE JOURNALS SAYING THEY ARE TAKING ACTION. UNSURE WHAT JOURNAL WILL THAT BE. ANOTHER SAID DA IS TAKING ACTION WITH FBI AND CSS. Unforchantly I dont know what journals of those is but right now lets hope DA is really taking action and hope this guy gets taken down for good.

Also Thank you everyone who have spread spread the word about this Pedophile that's been making multiple accounts. lets all Hope he gets IP banned off of Deviantart for good and Arrested for his crimes of Harassment, Pedophile, Threats, etc. 

For everyone who is NOT aware of this pedophile, I advise you guys to please drop EVERYTHING what you're doing and Please Read everything in this journal and also check out the other journals giving more detail about the Pedophile, also including screenshots taken by someone on Devinatart who have been harassed by him on Skype.

I will be honest I am extremely unsure if he goes not only young women around age of 11 - 20 and such, or both young girls and boys around those age's. So far he has been harassing girls and asking for nudes and such. Details will be down below and also in DA-Lone-Rangers Journal. Plus some very helpful advice from a friend who spread the word as well, will be linked in this journal as well. 




This is NOT a joke to joke around everyone. This is very extremely serious and threatening. To those who have loved ones and family members on Deviantart, please I advise you to read this journal entirely. Thank You and Continue reading please.

The first time I ever heard of this guy to be honest, was from one Deviant member DA-Lone-Ranger and he warned me about this guy and told me exactly what he is. Here is what I copied from DA-Lone-Ranger of what he said is this: 

"BEWARE! That user jeenmarko.deviantart.com  who is watching you, is a blackmailing pedophile who lures young girls, as young as 11 years old to do sexual things on Skype using power.knock account, he records them then blackmails the girls to to horrendous sexual things or he will show their friends and families what he's done with them. He is very dangerous and has been doing this to little girls for a long time on here. YEARS in fact. He has recently been using these accounts to conduct his criminal activities.

BE safe."

Everyone Please Spread the word about this Pedophile Immediately. I am still very unsure if he also goes after young men as well, just please everyone be very wary of this pedophile and spread the word around about him in hopes he gets IP banned and also in hope of getting Arrested and be sentence for life in prison. 

Now, I have a list of his Accounts He had created. He possibly had Created accounts so no one would possibly think its the same man. Well, Sadly it is the same man in all of these accounts listed below. Many have gotten up to his ass and told him off, which resulted him to deactivate his account and make a new one to continue him being a pedophile to other young Deviantart Members.

Journal of Ender-Slack saying about the note:  THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!I logged in today to find 83 messages overnight and 8 tags in journals about him. You guys have spread the word about this pervert and he deactivated. I couldn't have done it without you! 
Thank you for all the comments, BUT SADLY OUR FRIEND TRIED TO SCREW ME OVER AGAIN. I received a note this morning about an "art website" that someone wanted me to join. He didn't link the art website, and I'm afraid it will give me a virus.  I expected something like this, too bad he didn't expect me to beat his ass. I replied with a "thank you but I'm too busy to deal with your bullshit". The account is blank with no comments and it joined this week, it is most likely our pervert friend. I mean, he tried. 
PLEASE CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS CREEP AND THANK YOU FOR THE HELP!
Ender-Slack

chatty38 <- ACCOUNT OF HIS. SCREENSHOT PROOF: i.imgur.com/mNOGItu.png


EVERYONE. LISTEN UP. THE NOTES ABOUT AN ART SITE ARE NOT HONESTLY DONE BY THE SAME MAN WE BEEN TRYING TO HUNT DOWN. ITS SOMEONE ELSE. The man came at a bad time and we just assume it might be him. I already have apologized to him when he came at a bad time and such.

And Here is a Recent Journal I just ran into with more great detail about the Pedophile:
PedophileAlert on dA - Communitypower neededOkay community, here is Alkasay. Today I got a request to help spreading the word for a small group of people who got attacked by a very perv person here on DeviantArt. For sure you can tell "That might be all a lie", but why should it? I watched over several profiles and everywhere there is the same reaction. I want to speak a honest word here, because I think it is simply important to remember the community what kind of person 'can be' among us. I see a responsibility here to help out where I can. I know there is a strong community among my watchers and the users of ArtTable .
Even if this "would be" a lie, it doenst matter. Because such things actual are happening.
I dont want you to hate him.
I dont want you to go on his profile and waste your time with texts he might never read.
But
I want to warn you. Remember the mighty rules of the internet:

Never give your personal informations to someone you dont trust.
Never accept someone to skype (etc) if you feel uncomforta


I advise everyone to Spread the word around so more Deviants who are very unaware of this pedophile still roaming around the internet, and in hopes of getting him arrested by the police as well. Please I advise you block him, Report him, do anything. If anyone can get more information on where he is from and such so we can contact the police or someone could that be great.

Also one of the Deviant Users who shared my journal has made more good advice to help you guys out. Go Check out His journal here:  PEDOPHILE ON DEVIANTART. PLEASE READ AND SHARE.So, lately there have been so many reports about a pedophile(s) around deviant art, creating many accounts to harass young girls online, by sending them notes and/or comments asking for Skype and gradually moves on from there. I can't stress this enough to know that they're being targeted by a filthy bastard.
What else does he do?
He also threatens that if you do not go on a video chat with him, he will spread your public IP address across the internet.
He blackmails people in to going on to video, and will do horrific stuff to them. (Read other journals for that. I find it too sickening to type.)
DO NOT IN ANY WAY GIVE HIM YOUR SKYPE OR ANY OTHER PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR THAT MATTER TO ANYBODY ONLINE.
Here are some journals which will inform you: 


I will add more if I feel the need that I will need to.
:bulletblue: The first journal i



THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR SPREADING THE WORD. LETS KEEP AT IT AND LETS KEEP EVERYONE SAFE FROM THIS PEDOPHILE. 

let us put an end to his doings everyone. If anyone has more information about him, please let me know immediately.

This month DeviantArt has decided to bestow me with the award of 'Deviousness'! They've given me a crown for my profile and everything! The announcement article is here: fav.me/d8zcdli I have to say I am happily stunned. I never would have thought I would be considered for such a honour! It's also poignant because this award comes at a time when things are taking off for me, mentally I'm getting better, and I'm finally earning enough to make an actual proper living as an Artist (with a capital A ;))

DeviantArt has truly been instrumental in allowing me to become a professional artist. When I started drawing, being an artist meant doing commissions, or working for a publisher, or applying to a curated gallery, but all I wanted to do was draw. So I did. I thought it might be a nice to share my drawings with others, so, 11 years ago, I started to put my art onto this little website called DeviantART. I never had any formal training in art past highschool, so in many ways DA has been a teacher, people would tell me what they liked about my stuff, and would also point of the wonky hand or dodgy eyes and give me tips, and that spurred me on to be better, to push my improvement. It also let me connect with people. It's no secret my art deals with darker themes sometimes, and these personal connections to people have been so important to me throughout these rollercoaster 11 years. 

It was in 2010 I did my first even convention: I traveled from London to Dundee Scotland, on a whim and without a proper table booking, just an email that they might have a spare table. Luckily they let me in and I had my first taste of selling my art. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience!, Meeting people and hearing feedback on my drawings was fun and rewarding, I even managed to turn a small profit! Imagine that! making money from my art! It was a great feeling. So I booked some more conventions later in the year, and haven't stopped with them since. Now a lot of people who I meet at conventions have seen my art before online, which is a big change :) I have now been able to give up the various jobs I've done part time to support myself and I now make a (very modest) living from my art through conventions and print sales. I still don't know if I should use the term 'professional' for myself as I still don't do any commissions or draw for anyone else. I just draw whatever I feel like, and I'm so happy people like it enough to support me.

'Making it on your own' on social media wasn't an option when I started, there wasn't a mold to fit into, I didn't even dare to dream I could be a professional artist. So I had no idea it would work out like this! I just wanted to draw. So when my Deviousness Award says "DestinyBlue is one of DeviantArt's most recognized and beloved artists" it sounds almost unfathomable to me! How did that happen?! But i am so happy and grateful it has worked out like it has. I get an immense satisfaction and joy from what I do. I'm so glad so many connect with my art! I love meeting people though the conventions, though often the work that goes into organising them can feel unrelenting (so much goes on behind the scenes for planning, preparing and printing for a convention, especially overseas) but it's also a dream come true. The next goal is working out how to get in more time to draw and develop my skills -as you can see I haven't uploaded a drawing in a month! I am also quite aware, like everything in life, this could slip though my fingers (and that's okay too) I'll work hard at it, and try hard. But no one ever said living as an artist wasn't precarious!  XD

It's beautiful to get this recognition from DeviantArt. Reading all the wonderful things people said about me was so heartwarming. (How did they find you?!) I feel humbled and proud, which are tough to feel together, but welcome to my emotional life ;)

I write this from a Eurostar train to Paris, after touching down from Australia yesterday. I'm planning to post a journal about this adventure, so keep an eye out for that!
I'm in Paris for Japan Expo. In the 'Young Designers' section D111, at the back (where I will be literally melting)
It might well be the last time I do this show, so please come say hello if you'd like to ^-^

Thank you! :heart:

Peace, Love and Crowns
