My Love and My ThanksMy Love and My Thanks2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can’t say it more clearly or express my gratitude more aptly. When I posted my new comic this morning, I never imagined that it would climb so high, so quickly. I am absolutely touched and infinitely appreciative of all you friends and Deviants and Bronies who’ve honored me by favoriting and sharing my humble little comic! I never imagined ANY pic of mine would reach upwards of 1,350 favorites and 40,000 views, PERIOD, to say nothing of doing it in less than twelve hours! I’m stunned.
So thank you all SO VERY much! I’m very sorry I don’t have much time to keep up with every comment these days. I’ve been making pony stuff nonstop in my spare time and too often lately the choice has come down to spending two hours drawing or two hours replying to each message. What I can tell you is that I read every single comment and message. Sometimes it takes m
Poking the beehiveI've been distracted by Skyward Sword for far too long so I've not got the full details of the controversy, but I thought it was about time a high-profile artist like myself made an official statement.Poking the beehive2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rumours abound that, following several complaints, Hasbro is considering action by removing a very popular character (in fact, one of my favourites) from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Some are complaining how her actions and behaviour could be misconstrued as offensive to those who have learning disabilities.
Others are reacting strongly to these opinions, calling them words like "ableist" for trying to remove this character from the show.
The disabled persons of this community are arguing that they should decide what's offensive to them, not the white knights or the haters.
Removing this character would be no easy task, especially as she's nearly had more appearances than any other of the popular secondary characters. And though she is shown to be clumsy sometim
Dash Academy OC update and lovely fanart!Wow! There are over 60 OCs in my folder for possible background ponies - thank you for your submissions!Dash Academy OC update and lovely fanart!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm still accepting OC references (read my previous journal for submission rules), so it's not too late to submit yours if you haven't already. The order in which the OCs will show up in upcoming strips is mainly based on whether the OCs owner did something thoughtful, such as consistently giving helpful feedback, leaving a donation, or making cool Dash Academy-related art (which I luuuuuuuv).
Speaking of which, here are some lovely pieces that I've been meaning to feature because I love them so:

Lyra Plushie - OpinionsI have gotten a ton of notes and emails about the Lyra plushie that Hoppip made with some 'extra features'. As much as I would like to respond to each of them, I don't have time. I would rather spend my time making new embroidery designs for the MLP fans out there. For a compromise though, I typed this up. There are basically 2 comments/notes/emails I have gotten. Either the comment is about how I could make something so objectionable, or why I allowed my design/embroidery to be used in such a fashion. So let's answer some of those questions.Lyra Plushie - Opinions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The reason I make the designs and embroider is so that everyone who wants one can have a MLP plushie or patch or whatever they want until Hasbro finally starts making merch. That is why I only charge the cost of materials for pretty much everything. I make about 14 cents on average per design I embroider, and you can see all that detail here http://ethepony.blogspot.com/2

Thank You, everypony!When I first joined this fandom last Summer, I really did not know what to expect. I had never been part of a fandom before, and what I usually saw of them, as an outside observer, usually turned me away. However, I really loved the show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, so I figured I should get involved. I embraced the term "brony", but I didn't know If I really wanted to be a "brony". Being part of something like that would entail so much, and I wasn't sure if I could shake off the potential bad stigma if I ever got involved.Thank You, everypony!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, I eventually decided to swallow my pride, and dive in. My first true foray into the fandom was the Equestria Daily steam group. There, I met some awesome bronies, and I was able to share my pony art with them. I made quick friends. Soon enough, I officially became a member of the brony community.
And I don't regret it.

I'll probably see if i can get most of these done next week on my next round of days off. I took an extra one, but i think i can handle this set. I just have to keep motivated. These should all be fun too so i'm not that worried!
I'll take a few spots for ink+marker-accent character drawings, like these -> CLICK FOR EXAMPLES! (NSFW, but naughty details are small)
These can be any rating, and are $45 (+$30 for an additional character) As you can see, pinups and lingerie and such are my specialty!

A Great Idea for the 2nd Chapter Kick off...What time is it? UPLOAD TIME!A Great Idea for the 2nd Chapter Kick off...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I seem to have fallen into this pattern of writing a new journal entry with my thoughts, ideas and hopes before I upload any new pages.
So it is that this point one can assume that If you see a new journal entry then chances are good that there are new pages. This time is no different.
I enjoyed these next two pages so thoroughly that I'm actually uploading them early, originally I wanted to present them with the next three or so pages that follow those,
but changed my mind once I started and found that I couldn't stop until these two were done.
So, with that out of the way I also wanted to present an idea that I have floating around in my head.
I have been blessed enough to have a job that is not only quite close to what I want to do personally. (I print and design poster and sale ads for a New England based comic company) It's more impressive than it sounds, and is actually quite boring and frustrating, but still satisfying. In this job, howeve

He may not be the strongest, but he ASKS his pokemon if they want to join, seriously he's nicer than Ash to his pokemon.The Best Pokemon Trainer?10 months ago in Personal More Like This
The poor man gets bitten, poisoned, chewed on, strangled, stabbed, prodded, crushed, blown up, and all manner of painful things by his pokemon, AND HE LOVES THEM ANYWAYS.
James needs his own show. Of when he was a kid or something. And his amazing gift with pokemon.
James is actually really awesome.
You go James!
A challenge to Fallout Equestria fansIt's two weeks from Nightmare Night and lately I've been reading a lot of Creepypasta (don't ask me why). I wish to ask all of you to do me a favor. Write a scary Fallout Equestria. By scary I don't mean a gore fest (like cupcakes) or a body count (like a slasher). I mean something legitimately scary (or parody scary like Zombieland, Scooby Doo, Shaun of the dead, so on and so forth). I can't give you an example because I'm not easily scared (either that or Slender isn't scary as everyone let's on in all honesty it didn't even make me flinch). The only things that truly scare me is pop-scares (i.e. screamers) and those don't count. Feel free to do this how you want a crossover with a horror movie or an original story. I want to be scared but I want it to have substance like Silent Hill or Resident Evil (the original trilogy) and please remember to send it to me I can't read it if I don't know it exists. I'll even do one myself if I can think of something. I hope everyone has fun and scA challenge to Fallout Equestria fans1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Fallout Equestria: Anywhere But Here NOW LIVESo a lot of you have heard of this Fallout Equestria story that's coming out called "Anywhere But Here". And more than a few of you are here because of fanart you've already seen.Fallout Equestria: Anywhere But Here NOW LIVE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First thing's first. This is actually TWO stories, both of which have two main idea men, myself and a chap named Stonershy (http://idliketosmokeatree.deviantart.com/). Both feature the same main characters Double Tap (a beat up looking unicorn) and Rita (a nerdy little griffon) but while one is more of an action movie type story, the other is more just a collection of their random adventures in the Wasteland.
The main story is called "Fallout Equestria: Anywhere But Here" has the main narrative focus on Double Tap as he and Rita take on a contract that disrupts their comfortable, if very shady, lifestyles and put them in for the fight of and for their lives. The first chapter IS OUT NOW, follow Stonershy for that (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/22731/Fallout%3A-Equestria---Anywhere-but-Here).

Windows 8How on earth did Microsoft go from Windows 7, the most polished and nicest experience it ever created to the monstrosity that is windows 8. They looked at Android, and IOs, and said "We need to copy this, but ignore all the actual interface parts that make these systems nice to use." They made a hybrid desktop and tablet os, that totally missed why you want to use either.Windows 83 months ago in Personal More Like This
I got my Wacom Companion yesterday, and after about an hour of frustration that quickly made me realize I am not original enough with profanity, I was playing minecraft on my desktop instead of finishing the setup so that I could use it to draw.
I love the box it came in, I love the look of the thing, but as soon as I got into windows and found that they want me to swipe left, hit a button, and then search a screen for a desktop icon to be able to do anything serious, I quickly lost interest. When I picked up my first Android smartphone, it seemed obvious what I needed to do. Everything felt ri

I almost lost that privileged today. My mom was in an accident that totaled her car. She managed to escape the wreck with nothing more than a broken toe. (She was hit from the backside). Had it been any harder then she could have suffered worse. She didn't and everyone at home is thankful for that.
