I'm doing Cover # 3 for the official Adventure Time comics! Words can't describe how excited and flattered I am to have this opportunity! When I was first offered the job, I had to take a break from my desk to DANCE. Working on official comics for one of my favorite cartoons has always been a dream of mine. I'm thrilled to be working alongside with webcomic royalty like Ryan North and Emily Carrol, and the other amazingly talented creators on board. <3
Here's a little teaser! I'm told the final colors for this cover may be tweaked slightly in the final. Shannon Watters (editor of Boom! comics) requested a more girl-centric cover, so as you can guess I really had a field day with it.
I may be doing more work for the comics in the future, but I'm not sure I can comment on that just yet. Stay tuned, an

Season Wrap UpWell, season 2 has finally come to a close, and I'm sitting here and looking back on it all, with a few thoughts I want to share.Season Wrap Up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just want to say thank you (again) to everyone that watched and enjoyed the MLP season finale this weekend. There were lots of hard nights and long hours from all of us on the DHX crew to make it the best would possibly could. Of course, there are things that are always going to be imperfect, but overall from what I gather, it seemed well-received.
I was also shocked at how many people recognized my OC pony that made a small cameo in this weekend's episode. As a blanket response to a lot of the same questions I've been getting all weekend: No, I did not voice her and I'm unsure as to who did. I would assume just one of the regular VA's. She was put in kind of last minute. The artist who drew her in the storyboard, made her look like my pony (just a coincidence), and after seeing i

I have a larger soapbox here.
I'm sorry but… people who keep bitching about alicorn/princess Twilight?
Are really goddamn irritating.
All I see is a bunch of whining. SO MUCH WHINING.
"BAWWWW, NOW SHE'S A PRINCESS!"
"BAAAAWW, NOW SHE HAS WINGS!"
"BAAWWW, I DON'T LIKE CHANGE!"
Fuck! Grow up.
My Little Pony was, and always has been, a cartoon made to sell toys. IT'S A GIANT COMMERCIAL. That is the entire reason it exists—GET OVER IT. Nevertheless, the writers do a damn good job working in all of Hasbro's marketing desires.
Besides, it was completely expected. For instance: A decent bit of FiM pulls inspiration from Sailor Moon. Annnnd guess what? Sailor Moon was a princess—who periodically "leveled up" and got things like wings.
Also, princesses are a marketing trend right now—of course Hasbro is going to cash in on that.

I know we are really into the G4 show and for probably 95% of us, that is our absolute favorite one. HOWEVER....... I have some news for you guys: there are some fans out there who ARE into the previous series besides Friendship is Magic! Yes, it is true. Some of the most well-known fans like egophiliac are fans of the classical My Little Pony shows/movies/toys. So why am I telling you all this? Well because to be honest we really need to respect those people, regardless of how we feel about the old versions. I know that the older versions didn't have as high of quality of animation/voicing/plot/everything as Friendship is Magic does, but you know what? Some people just like them, period.

'Why Pony Fanart?'It was an innocent enough question.'Why Pony Fanart?'5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm lucky to work in an environment of people who are their own sort of nerd about something. We have an in-office D&D campaign going, a league of Pokemon collectors, a bastion of Trekkies (who really had a difficult week, bless their souls)...and of course we've got a few Bronies in the stable too. I'm among pretty good company. And while the question "why all the ponies?" wasn't asked in any manner of hostility, I've seen message boards ignite this inquiry not with curiosity but frustrated rage.
I've got my own reasons. The character designs are easy to draw. They're bright with bold colors allowing me to flex my palette more. They're just so darned expressive. There's a massive talent pool of artists whom I can collaborate with if I'm not doing a pony image of my own. But one of the biggest reasons, and this is important for somebody who makes a part of their living freelancing alongside other independent entities (that's you wonderful folks)

Saturday mornings are super again. Harkening back to the glory days the 1970s and '80s when kids got their weekends going with Super Friends and School House Rock, Cartoon Network is launching DC Nation, a programming block that showcases the heroes of the DC Comics library. Anchoring the hour will be the CGI show Green Lantern: The Animated Series (10am/9c) and the continuation of the first season of Young Justice (10:30am/9:30c). Scattered Throughout the hour are animated shorts and interstitials with news and vignettes from around the DC universe.
Though some of the shorts feature big names like Superman and Batman, many will put the spotlight on "characters we've always wanted to see animated, but that might not be able to support a whole series," says Peter Giardi, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Animation, which is coordinating the block. Among the second-tier characters featured are Black Lightenin

With a thump, I backed into somepony, startling me enough that the levitation field evaporated in a poof and the clean and shiny PipBuck clattered to the floor.
Turning, I found myself eye-to-eye with the Overmare.
She didn’t speak, her gaze turning to the PipBuck on the ground. Velvet Remedy’s initials and cutie mark clearly visible.
“What. Is. This?” The Overmare spoke slowly, dangerously.
All eyes turned to me. I could feel every pair of eyes. Nobody spoke. The silence bore down like a lead blanket. My mouth went dry. I couldn’t find my voice.
I didn’t need to. I could feel the wave of loathing. Dozens of Velvet Remedy fanponies, and I was the pony holding the reason why their idol was lost to them

The railcar jumps the tracks after they've made their escape. They take a tumble in it before it finally stops.
"Ugh, so THIS is what having a boxcar dropped on you feels like."
"Hey, at least it wasn't another battleship."
"What? Oh, don't tell me you haven't had a couple ships dropped on you. I swear, it's like every other week out in the Hoof "
*later, in a fight*
"Blackjack, did you just "
"What? Are you telling me you've never gelded a pony?"
*littlepip blushes furiously*
"Hey, at least this time it was with a blade. At one point all I had was an old dragon claw, and believe me, that can get pretty messy "
*littlepip nearly dies from the imagery*
" especially when the guy you're doing it to is a ten foot tall cyberpony monster with junk the size of your head."

Commission pricing.I decided I need to have an organized pricing list to point people towards when they ask me how much a particular commission would cost. It isn't that I dislike having to explain umpteen times that doing X and Y and Z to a custom costs $C, because that's not really something I have a problem with. I think it would be easier to have something like this list up because then I could point at it if people haven't seen it before on their own, and people could find what they're looking for. Also, a friend made the comment that they'd never commission someone who didn't have a price list up for public scrutiny, and I can understand the point; who's to say the commissioned artist isn't arbitrarily setting prices? Of course, that kind of pricing is pretty low behavior.Commission pricing.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, yea, quite a few good reasons for making a list.

Well, that was annoying......recently I had a spat of DMCA claims made against the image that I'm now, again, using as my DA ID an Avatar image. The funny thing is that the person who stole my artwork originally, was claiming it as their own. While this was a bit of a headache, I'm dealing with it now and thanks to the team here on Deviant Art the matter has at least been resolved here. I'm still waiting on the other counter claims and claims that I've filed.Well, that was annoying...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I won't post up here who the person was, but in the comments below you should be able to figure it out fairly easily.
Normally I wouldn't do this kind of thing, but once actions were taken against me for my own artwork something had to be done. It's kind of funny that if they just would've used it and not taken any action, I probably would've never noticed nor cared that much to be perfectly honest. Sadly though, they just couldn't leave well enough alone.
Either way, thankfully that matter has been resolved and I look forward to 2013 with hopes that thing

It was a year ago during the summer I became a brony (I'll tell you that story another time) and one night on my phone I was on DA looking for pictures of AppleJack. I found a modiritly famous picture of her in Fallout holding the gun Lucky. In the comment's I found a link to Equestria Daily and the story Fallout Equestria. I was interested and eventually read the Prologue, Intro, and chapter one. I enjoyed it but for some reason never continued until one night.
Exactly last year on Nightmare Night I was going to read the most infamous fic ever "Cupcakes". But at the last moment I chickened out and decided to read chapter two of FoE instead. Best decision of my life. T

Fallout Equestria, finished readingI just finished reading Fallout: Equestria by Kkat. I had started the last day before 2012... a Saturday. I have read it all in just 13 days. This fanfic, a crossover of My Little Pony and Fallout were the best "book" I have ever read! I'll admit I'm not reading that much books but this was simply amazing. I usually just toss them away after reading a while but this had me hooked all the time! I couldn't stay away!

Man, life is hard, but I wanna live it.
Above all that, a few people (who shall not be named), are really getting on my nerves.
No, it's not any of my friends, its other deviants who I'm not really affiliated with.
So I'm setting some rules:
Don't bother me with youtube comments to explain your reactions to me. I don't have the time nor the patience to watch a video of your reaction.
From now on, youtube reaction comments will be ignored.
Don't get mad about this, because I don't bloody care anymore. I'm tired of being a pushover.
I do not and will not do free requests.
But I guess that no matter how many times I say that or how many times I post journals, people just don't get the hint.
NO. I will not draw a picture for you unless I feel like it (which is rarely).
