I loved it.
The FiM team is amazing, and I am consistently impressed with the work they do on each episode.
I marvel at the believability they breathe into the world and the characters. From the writing to the music to the animation. Each component is seriously and thoughtfully composed... The emotions of the characters feel genuine, and because the characters take themselves seriously, the viewers connect with them.
Cartoons/animations/comics have immense power... and it makes me so happy to see a cartoon that finally takes that power seriously. Most people dismiss the idea of cartoons being serious, and that is a tragic mistake... Cartoons are symbolic in their expression, and the more "simple" they are, the more symbolic they may become. My Little Pony is the perfect example of this. The designs are simple, but the symbolism is rich with meaning and substance (because the creators care). This is why it is a good show.
Children deserve to be taken serious

Personally I had a blast there at EFNW!
Anyways! Gamer Luna and Chrysalis prints all sold out. Normal Luna on the clouds also sold out. Never underestimate the Princess of the Night!
Thank you to all those who came to the table to talk, take photos, have things signed. I thank you from the bottom of my art. There are some who haven't picked up their commissions!
Expect a Request Friday this week and more Morning Ponies soon!
The work is never done!
O__________OSo last night I stopped at a gas station to get, well, gas, while I was doing my paper route. I had a complaint from a customer, stating they did not receive their paper yesterday. Me being, well, me, I carry around with me (in my car that is) a small portable typewriter. I don't have good penmanship AT ALL, so when I need to leave a customer a note on a manner I type one up and put it with their paper. Anyway,so I'm sitting there pumping gas while typing on my typewriter listening to my MP3 player, which is hooked up to play through my car speakers. Suddenly some good ol' Benny Goodman comes on. Oh yea, I"m happy, so I turn it up some.O__________O3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I then hear the click of the gas nozzle finishing fillin' up Simmons (my Blazer to who don't know the story) and stepped out to put it back. From inside the gas station a ninty-ish year old man walks- no- waddles out and heads for his car in front of mine. Well he hears the music, so waddles over to me curiously. By that time I'm back inside my vehicle

There is something about typography that is just awesome. The combination, use and placement of words/language is something we see in everyday design and should be appreciated as an art form. So to spread the love of Typography, here are some amazing typographic pieces you should all check out:

Devious Journal EntryFalling Stars will shine so brightDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When the world is still at night
Moon will fade and Sun will die
When we come when dreams are high
Into Darkness all will fall
From planets great to seeds so small
Nightingale will cease its song
When evil wins it will be strong
But where there's night there is day
Where there's a will there's a way
Where darkness is there's always light
Given the chance it will shine bright
Hope may be so frail and shy
But as long as there's good it will never die,
So follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high
Yes, follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high

I need to make a thank you journal...I don't like writing more than one journal at a time in one day, but still... I had to for this.I need to make a thank you journal...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I really want to thank everyone who left incredibly encouraging comments on this picture. Seriously, it made my night, brought tears to my eyes.
I have had trolls in the past, but like so many people have told me, haters gonna hate, and for every person who trolls there are ten who care. Even the people who don't enjoy the same cartoons or films as I do. I've got plenty of friends who watch things I could never dare to watch, yet they've been the biggest supporters I could ask for.
God has blessed me with so much these past two years while studying animation. And even after the horrible start of a summer I had with haters and frantic watchers I've made it thus far with so many people backing me up, even people I have never met IRL. It's so heartwarming to know that people support me no matter what.
And like one blessed soul left in a comment on that picture above, wh

1) All politicians must be professional psychologists.
2) Must have an improv comedian at their side 24-7.*

Questions about Rise of the GuardiansOkay, gotta ask a few questions since I`ve been reading a lot of "Rise of the Guardians"-fanfictions lately and have noticed a few things which seem to be official because they come up in several stories, yet I haven`t found proof in the books I have so far.Questions about Rise of the Guardians3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Where exactly do those informations come from or are the just made up by fans?
- Jack Frost's real name from his past life is Jackson Overland
Answer : Mentioned in the books by William Joyce
- Jack sank the Titanic ( honestly had to laugh about that one )
Answer : Fan-theory.
- Jack's favourite animals are dolphins ( I assume because of the dreamsand he touched turning into dolphins in the movie or are there any other reasons? )
Answer : Because the dreamsand he touched turned into dolphins and dolphins are a symbol for fun.
- Jamie and his family are descendants from Jack's family
Answer : Fan-theory.
Thanks for the replies!

A pony weekend.A pony weekend.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What a weekend! So much pony!
But definitely a success.
Not gonna lie, I was really damn nervous on Friday morning... Had a little bit of an anxiety attack before we left for SeaTac... And I was still really nervous when we got to the hall to set up. I've been working my ponytail off getting ready for this convention for the past five months (drawing, painting, printing, prepping, and everything else in-between). I was scared I was going to mess something up, or forget something important...
But you know what? You pony people are totally awesome--and I felt better in no time at all. Seriously.
So many wonderful and amazing people came by my table! Oh my goodness, it was so unbelievable! And many came with such kind and inspiring words--I have enough inspiration to rocket me to the moon and back! Thank you, thank, thank you!
Here are some highlights:

Okay, mares and stallions, here's the skinny. Due to the unexpected length of the Past Sins Print Project done by Equestria Publications as well as the fiasco with Paypal, some of the original signers never claimed their books. The original wait list has been processed, and they claimed a good portion of the remaining books. But there are still some left over.
So, for those who want a chance to get the hard cover print of Past Sins, this is your chance to get in on this first edition printing.
Now, before anyone panics, here is the base level information you need to know.
- As of yesterday morning, there are approximately 119 copies available. Be warned though that those on Equestria Publications' newsletter got this information yesterday morning, so that number has likely decreased.
- The printing cost per book is $21.21.
- Shipping cost will depend on location and number of ordered copies. Books ordered inside the US
Time for a GOTF 'Casting Call'!Hi everybody!Time for a GOTF 'Casting Call'!3 years ago in Personal Journal More Like This
I have a treat for you all today; I need cameos of YOUR Sonic fancharacters for a very special GOTF story I'm working on! It's a gift for you all, so what better way to make it special besides letting my readers play a role?
If you'd like a chance to see your characters in the comic, all you need to do is post a comment on this journal with a link to an image of your character.
There are some do's and don'ts though, because of the nature of the comic/scene:
-Give me characters with winter outfits! This is a Christmas-themed story. If your character dosen't have one that's okay, I'll probably modify their existing costume.
-Couples, teams, and families are great!
-Humans are GREAT, and so are Anthros or humans with tails/animal ears. If you have a photo of yourself, that's a valid entry. I might draw a likeness of you into the comic! (I still want Sonic OCs though, of course)
-Color images are preferable!
-No mythical creatures
-No main character l

Important RantImportant Rant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well Anon, this is a tough one. I'm not entirely sure myself why or how but I can give you some theories.
First of all, this was not the main reason I changed my name, I changed my name because I did not want a fandom related pseudonym, people hardly take those seriously, and I pretend to little by little become a professional artist, I need people to take me seriously and I need to make a name for myself in the art community.
I had my old name for MANY years; I was around 13 when I "became" Priscy-Elric online I honestly couldn't come up with something more original because I never had many nicknames. After some time I realized just how lame it sounded and I wanted to change it for like forever until DA released the feature. I finally came up with a personal pseudonym.
Now I talk about self insertion.
In all honesty I could care less about people thinking she is a self insert because I don't think of self insertion as so
