WINNER! Re-design slave Leia! Win earrings!This contest was extremely hard to judge, and once I'd narrowed it down to half the entries, it was almost impossible. If I hadn't added a runner-up prize level, I'd still be judging now.WINNER! Re-design slave Leia! Win earrings!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you so much to everyone who entered. The variety of entries was better than I could have imagined! I was really amazed by all the creativity. I saw the bra turned into a vest. I saw the neck chain used as a signature weapon. I saw the red drapery turned into skirts and loose, baggy pants. I was amused to notice so many people leaving the boots as they were after I mentioned that I liked them. I saw Leias suited for ballroom dancing, sneaking around dark city streets, firebending, brawling, and just being awesome!

NLR vs. SE - Round 4! EDITHello hello! Welcome to the fourth round in our double-group contest!NLR vs. SE - Round 4! EDIT1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So far we have had armor designs, daring Princess rescues, and working together to fight the Changeling menace!
This week, the time has come... to fight back!
We will stand together, and face the Changeling threat! We will not despair, and we will not allow them to steal and feed off our love! We shall be victorious! We shall overcome!
For Equestria we march!
The fight has begun! But... the fast and forward approach is not for those who are of the night. Being loud and upfront is not Princess Luna's way. This week, if you're on the New Lunar Republic side,
Your task is to draw ponies in covert-ops against the Changelings! Infiltration, cunning, deception, ponies being stealthy, anything at all!
Due date: March 25th
We hope to see all of you participate!
EDIT: Because this is a Covert-ops mission, you DO NOT have to use the winning armor design! You can make your own stealth armor!
Open letter to a parting friendDear friend,Open letter to a parting friend1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Or I should say 'brother,' probably. Yes, you know who you are. Even though only about four years have gone by since we met in the most awkward of circumstances, it's funny how we've both reached an age in which friendships seem to last a lifetime instead of the untranscending kinds of camaraderie one used to have in highschool. Well, at least that's the case for me, since I know you keep your childhood friends close. Regardless of that, it does feel like we've known each other for so much longer than just four years. And in those four years you've made me so, so mad. So, so many times. You've made me laugh like a walrus, curse like a demon and worry like a mother. Yep, friendship with you has been quite a rollercoaster. Strangely enough too, since you're such a collected and hermetic guy. Maybe I've done all the feeling for both of us, maybe you just aren't versed enough in the rocky roads that sometimes wait ahead of us. What is unquestioned, though, is that it's been a

Why am I bringing up sad dogs in the Middle East, you ask? It's all part of this week's contest!
This week, we're having an acronym contest! Your task is to spell out one or more of these words, and use each letter as the first letter to create a sentence. Your words should, generally, make a full sentence instead of a string of nonsense.

About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Get used to it, because she's here to stay. And not just in the show.
We're introducing the updated version of season three's Twilight Sparkle into the comics as well.
We're asked about 5th person at our tables: "what do you think?" "Why did they do that?" "Are you gonna.." etc.
Since we work hand in hand with Hasbro, we never had any intention of NOT updating Twilight for the books as well.
And quite frankly... we are all about it!
Neither Katie Cook nor myself understand the hatred going on for having Twilight become a princess. Katie has made an outstanding point- Twilight may be the only popular character to have EARNED her crown... she worked for it, suffered for it, and it was awarded. She didn't marry into it, wasn't born into it (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, etc etc). That gives little girls a character that WORKED FOR WHAT SHE EARNED. One helluva example I think. And for Katie, with a little girl and another on the way... that's a great t

A Follow-Up on my last journalBecause I was frazzled (and apparently entertaining? Im glad lol) I need to address this but I dont want to answer everyone individually when you all have the same-ish questions;;;A Follow-Up on my last journal5 months ago in Personal More Like This
1) Im not forcing y'all to redesign your characters these are just the exact same rules that we have always had, i just dont think a lot of you read the rules or got away with stuff if you have a design in place that has been accepted youre welcome to keep it I JUST WANT YOU TO BE AWARE NOW im just tired of feeling bad making people change their characters all the time is all????
2) We do want your characters to be unique! I'm just saying that if EVERYBODY has white spotted cats when they just dont happen it kind of like...ruins it? you know what im saying? its the same reason we banned heterochromatic or blind cats its just no fun if everyone has it
3) Your characters dont have to look like EXACTLY like real cats, we allow a lot of things (like white cats with blue eyes, blue eyes in general and such) becau
Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!Was talking with another maker and we started chatting about suiting experiences and some of the not so nice things that follow. When you hit a con you usually see all the fluff first before some of the stink hits you. We discussed seeing suits that looked real mangy, smelled horrid, or just needed a good burning due to miscare. While you take care of yourself, your suit needs care too!!Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here's how to keep you smelling really awesome at a con out of suit:
1. SHOWER. No one wants to smell your funk, no matter how 'natural' you're going for. Soap, water, scrub, repeat if need be.
2. Deodorant. Kill the BO where it really starts. It's a serious put off when you can smell the suiter before seeing them but its even worse if the person is out of suit.
3. Toothbrush/toothpaste: Fresh breath is also important. Keep them pearly whites white
4. Pack several sets of CLEAN clothes in a SEPARATE container than your fursuit stuff!! Don't wear the same stuff over and over again, that's just... nas

Difference between want and needShort rant:Difference between want and need4 months ago in Personal More Like This
All to often I see people approaching artists with ridiculous demands or desires, the biggest one being the 'need' for a certain item.
For example: I NEED a fursuit/art/plush/etc.
No. You need oxygen and nutrition. Things that substain you in life or keep you safe. Those are things needed.
Art pieces and costumery are what are called "luxury items". They are things to make you happy or to show a self expression. You will not die if you don't have a fursuit. If you feel you must have something, work hard or make it! You will appreciate the item much more if your own time and labor went into it rather than if it was just given to you. Keep in mind many of these people that you are contacting are offering their services to put food on the table or keep a roof over their heads. They won't be giving things away for free. Free doesn't pay the bills, no matter how much we wish they did.

So we finally welcome back season 3 of MLP! I'm very excited for this season to unfold, and I hope that all of you are avoiding all the spoilers and commercials like you should be!
Next week, my first episode of season 3 airs, "Too Many Pinkie Pies." I had a blast working on this episode with my amazing board partner Dave. I have never gotten to do a full-on Pinkie Pie episode, so this was definitely a fun one for me.
Looking forward to seeing more fan content, I'm always amazed at all the talent out there!
Hope ya'll enjoy!

I remember seeing the beginning of it a year or so back and thinking "OMFG what are they thinking!!!!", and then life went on, and then I got the film to score and...
It was frigging great. The people who put it together, whom I have been working with for some time, REALLY did a GREAT job, and I really enjoyed scoring it, and it just is friggin' great.
Going to the premiere tomorrow here in Lala land.
Everyone worked so hard on this thing, and it shows. In every frame, in every line.
And everyone felt that the music totally elevated the film, so I did my job as well.
I have been a busy dude.

Why did Celestia banish Luna to the moon?
This looks like a controversial act or feat for many people considering the fact that Princess Luna is Princess Celestia's younger sister. The first and foremost important fact to realize is that Celestia didn't just banish Luna to the moon, she banished Night Mare Moon to the moon. The opening sequence described in detail that Luna allowed jealously and anger to get the best of her and that she wanted to create an endless night so Equestria would be forced to appreciate her more. Celestia didn't outright attack her or anything like that, but tried to reason with Luna, but Luna was so far over the edge that she was transformed into a "wicked mare of darkness". Even after that, the opening explains tha
