It was awesome.
Now, BronyCon is only my second MLP con ever, with my first being MLP-MSP, which was comparatively small (yet a lot of fun as well). Nonetheless, I still call it the best con ever.
The panel was on Sunday @ 1:45pm in the Hall of the Moon. Even with the hall's large size, we filled the majority. On the panel was ata64, The4thaggie, Tohino, BeardedDoomGuy and myself. We started with a intro video showing some of the various works we have done. Afterwards, we talked a bit about what we do and how we do it. We left the majority of the time open for questions, which was good as there was a lot of them. Towards the end, the questions were cut (sadly) short so that we could show the Fallout video I have been working on nearly forever. Afterward, I got to talk to some of
Hard SF Spacecraft Design 101For those who have an interest in realism this article by Robert Frost, instructor/engineer in the Flight Operations Directorate at NASA, published on Gizmodo, provides a good introduction to the kind of rationale underpinning realistic Hard SF design.Hard SF Spacecraft Design 1012 months ago in Personal More Like This
Why Does The International Space Station Have Such A Weird Shape?
From the article: “When I watch science fiction, I find myself looking at the smooth, uniform, symmetrical ships and asking myself questions like How do they reject heat? Where are they getting their electrical power? Where are the communications antennae? How does a docking vehicle avoid pluming? Why did they put the tanks on the inside where they are harder to replace? Why are they using so much more material than needed? Where the heck did they build that thing? And so on."
Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: SteampunkWelcome to the land that never was in an era that had never been looking forward to the future that never came.Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: Steampunk1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome, to steampunk.
1. What is steampunk?
Steampunk is a retro-active subgenre of science fiction that incorporates elements of historical fiction, adventure, horror, speculative fiction, fantasy and alternative history. It exists as a hybrid genre that focuses on a re-imagining of the Industrial revolution when men and women create analog machines to achieve the fullest of human potential. Usually set in Victorian England during the mid- to late-1800’s or the American “Wild West” era, this genre incorporate the spirit of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells in their setting and general mood as well as the new-found relationship between man and his machine.
Steampunk has since become an aesthetic movement, sparking off subcultures that focus on visual art, comics, music, clothing, accessories and “custom mods” where modern-day m
A word about the state of 2DAfter hearing about Disney gutting their 2D theatrical animation department, I think I've finally realised something. 2D isn't dying everywhere it's only dying in the North America's Theatrical movies. 2D is pretty much everywhere else in the world. Japan is still putting out several 2D TV shows and theatrical films, 2D is still big in TV animation (Even more bigger than CGI, since 2D is easier to achieve on a TV budget), and it's huge on the internet, serval shorts while made in adobe flash still use the frame by frame techniques of classic 2D animation. And it is possible for independent studios to make 2D animated films, recently the web series Dick Figures started a Kickstarter and managed to get enough money to produce a movie based on the series, in fact I think they're getting close to finishing it now. So in conclusion 2D is only dying when it comes to theatrical animation in North America, it's alive and well everywhere else and if we want to bring it back to North AmerA word about the state of 2D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hard SF Feature 03: Rhys TaylorContinuing my feature on Hard SF art, today featuring Rhys Taylor.Hard SF Feature 03: Rhys Taylor4 months ago in Personal More Like This
This series features artists whose work is grounded in hard science, and one cannot get more grounded in science than Blender artist Rhys Taylor, astrophysicist, Arecibo galaxy hunter, currently hailing from the Astronomical Institute, Prague.
When I started researching Project Orion after reading George Dyson’s book on the topic* one of the first things I came across was Rhys Taylor’s now famous youtube video Project Orion: A Re-Imagining. At the time I never dreamed that one day I would be brainstorming nuclear pulse propulsion concepts with Rhys1, nor did I imagine that my nuclear pulse propulsion art would play a role, albeit a small role2, the larger contribution being made by Winchell Chung, who provided Rhys with early concept art for the Discovery spacecraft from Arthur C. Clarke and

Homophobia AwarenessI am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.Homophobia Awareness2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital bacause they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high

Ok, here we go...
Here's something I came by, while
skulking around dA. I've seen it before
but it really got my attention just now..
Looks kinda like fun :/
at least until I get tired of it
I invite all of you to try it...
I'll cheat! I'll include older works if
they fit the description!
but the rest that will follow will be new
artworks, made for this purpose only!
And, I'm changing some because there
are quite a few which are too
similar, if not repetetive...
and I believe that the original list was
rather haphazardly put together...
and some of the items would be rather
boring to draw...

Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)Art is a process.Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply practice or avoid distractions. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art

Megaupload is Just The Beginning?Here's a little bit of a worrisome discovery.Megaupload is Just The Beginning?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Megaupload, a file sharing website, is completely gone. If you go to that domain its entirely blank.
But here's the thing...the FBI destroyed it.
The main offices of this site were located in New Zealand, but there were other smaller offices in the US. The Federal Government literally hunted down the representatives of this webpage and arrested them in two countries, then erased it from existence!
But not before they seized all the records of anyone who ever used the site as evidence.
If you or anyone else has used Megaupload illegally, this will probably be very disturbing.
Why? Because their site was distributing copy-write infringing uploads.
So those who claim SOPA and PIPA will do nothing, take a good look into the black hole of Megaupload. The FBI can track you down and throw you in prison and then track all your constituents ALREADY.
But the reach of this is even wider.
