Rumour controlEver since shortly after BroNYCon January, ugly rumours about me, and about the con, have circulated over and over throughout the Internet. (They have been accompanied by frequent LGBT-bashing attacks and bigotry.) This isn't a coincidence or the random work of disinterested trolls. It is a deliberate and prolonged smear campaign.Rumour control4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Shortly after BroNYCon January, five staffers made a power grab, attempting to obtain financial and logistical control over the con. I did not let them seize control. They walked; only two returned even temporarily to the staff. These now ex-staffers have been leaking documents and spreading lies and distortions about me, and about BronyCon, ever since. Their aim was to destroy my reputation and that of the con.
When I was on the staff myself, I wasn't allowed to react to any of this. I was under tremendous pressure from the staff to ignore these rumours. But the people spreading them are very persistent. It's late March, and the rumours are still swirling. A

The other day we celebrated a very special birthday: the first anniversary of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" first Season's first Episode, broadcasted on 2010-10-10!
I started to prepare this Journal Entry months ago, a few days after I had watched my first episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" on Sunday, 14 August 2011. I just never got around to finish it, but by now you surely have noticed that I am a full-fledged Brony anyway; my huge plz-collection probably gave that away
What in tarnation is a Brony, you wonder? Well, on the one hand it is a village in Central Poland with a population of 80 citizens - which just got about 20% cooler in ten seconds flat! More commonly though it is understood as described in

Long ago in the realm of the nether, the goddess of time created the rulers of the seasons, those who would bear watch of the ever changing tides of man, and make sure their world remained hospitable, as it was constantly changing and wild.
Father Winter rules over his fellow seasons, with just and calm fist.
Long ago when the world was coated with ice, the very breath of winter wanted a steed to bear Him and His people across the icy snow, and to the reaches of the world where the sun shined and the weather was warmer. He breathed life into small frozen deer, who sprouted to be massive animals, with bright eyes and sharp horns, and a fierce loyalty to the man they came to know as "Father Winter". Father Winter gave his children the gift of magic, to fly without wings.

A Note About The Flaming Pony.Hi hi everypony!A Note About The Flaming Pony.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I get asked a lot of the same questions, as I'm sure you can all imagine, and sometimes I can answer them and sometimes I can't. Lately I've been getting asked about Wild Fire and why she was changed in one of the last episodes, if we'll ever see her again, and how she came to be in the first place.
Her first appearance in the Canterlot Wedding ep, wasn't much of an exciting story (none of this really is). After seeing the cleaned up storyboard (which I believe that section was drawn by fellow board artist Marshall), I noticed that the one pony he drew looked almost like Wild Fire. For shoots and giggles, I went to our art director and simply just asked if we could try and make it WF. And it worked. She was approved as a "board pull" design. It was as simple as that.
While work had begun on season 3, I was approached by my good friend Wootie (and co-director) asking if it was okay to use WF as a Wonderbolt Cadet for the 307 episode. They needed a few more designs,
talent follow upso after a great many debates, here is what i am seeing.talent follow up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
there are 4 types of people responding.
1. the hard working artist agrees, they understand the time they have put into it, and in turn they are seeing the improvement they desire. they study the right things, like life, to understand how things work. they fight being completely self indulgent 100% of the time so they can better learn the skills they need.
2. the casual artist who doesnt really agree because they see somebody better, they are happy with what they can do and know they can be better, but they compare themselves to others too often.
3. the lazy fuck that thinks they must not be talented because they dont put in much time. and since they are so frustrated with seeing how great others are, they must not be talented while the other person is.
4. the people who see some little kid copy a drawing and imagine that they must be some kind of naturally born incredible artist. most of these people arent much beyond a part time

"Fanwork… is illegal," posits Phoe of Equestria Daily in her editorial ( http://www.equestriadaily.com/2013/02/regarding-fighting-is-magic-takedown.html ) on the recent shutdown of 'Fighting is Magic'. And she may be right. Intellectual Property laws in the United States are insanely tilted towards the interests of content rights-holders. (Note that I do NOT say "content creators", since in practice, most of the time, the actual CREATORS of content— e.g. Lauren Faust and the animators at DHX/Studio B— do not hold the legal rights to their own creations; larger companies, e.g. Hasbro, do. It's a sad situation, but it's been unfortunate reality for a very long time. See also: Musicians vs. Record Labels. But that's another screed for another time…)

Atheism - not intellectually impressiveThis is mainly directed at atheists and agnostic atheists - i.e. people who don't believe in the existence of god. If you still believe in SkyDaddy BigBoss, then maybe this journal is not for you.Atheism - not intellectually impressive3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Good for you, but in most cases: not good enough. Atheism is merely a rejection of one bullshit type. Too many atheists are content, and actually feel proud of rejecting god. Let's get a grip on reality: this is not an impressive intellectual feat. Religion is the easiest kind of bullshit to recognize. The contradictions are plainly obvious once you actually allow your mind to critically examine the claims made. That it itself is a momentous step that most people in the world are unwilling or unable to take. However, it's not an achievement you should be satisfied with.
Instead, ask yourself - "What other bullshit do I take for granted?" Believe me, there is tons. Your life is full of it, but your critical thinking is not strong enough to recognize it. Surprise, surprise - some religious bibl

First of all, happy new year!
Here's an info-packed update:
You may have noticed that the linework in the last two comic updates (part 5 and 6) looks a lot smoother. That's because I've switched over to Paint Tool SAI, an amazing program with tablet pressure sensitivity and stabilizers that actually work.
Here's the really sweet part: I purchased it with the donations you've been sending. Thank you! Your donations are helping to improve the quality of the comic. I'm trying to scrape together $170 to upgrade my old copy of Photoshop CS2 (which is a nightmare to run on Windows 7 64 bit) to CS5, which will greatly hasten the process of making panels, gradients, and ovals for speech bubbles.

the myth about talentMany people are under the assumption many of the high profile artists in the digital art community are mainly good because of talent. This is not completely true(in my opinion). What does make them great is the simple fact of constant and regular practice. But if you still like to cling to the word, then talent is just in other words an ambition and motivation. This word,"talent" has been branded with something that you think is something that can only be inherited and if you dont have it you are doomed to fail. Many people has lost potential careers because of this.the myth about talent3 years ago in Personal More Like This
well folks let me put that myth to rest because i think anyone with ambition and motivation can learn any tool and any skill.And if you are not learning it, it is because you are not working hard enough on it.its simple as that.The practice will open your eyes and you will develop to see things in different ways, once again this has nothing to do with talent.

So much love and tolerance in the air right nowBecause I made a few posts about how I don't like the name "Derpy."So much love and tolerance in the air right now4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently Hasbro was pressuring WeLoveFine to remove or rename all merchandise with that character, and iTunes pulled the episode where she had a speaking role from their online store.
I've been accused of starting a petition that I've never even heard of in order to make this happen.
I'm very flattered, but bronies are giving me WAY too much credit for all this. (If only I had that sort of power to manipulate a giant corporation like Hasbro.) I'm not the only, or even the most active person speaking up about the problematic elements with the character. I just happen to be a very high-profile fan who has mentioned it a few times.
Here are some posts by other folks explaining why it's an issue:
Changing the world through musicSomeone recently brought up an interesting point as they left a comment on one of my YouTube videos. They argued that my talent wasn't very rare, and that everything I've done has already sorta been done before--that I'm not really pushing any boundaries or doing anything new. Tone is often lost or misconstrued over the internet, but it seemed to me that the person leaving the comment was insinuating that I was somehow "less" of an artist, or not quite deserving of praise, simply because I wasn't pushing some sort of boundary with the music I made.Changing the world through music3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a pretty thick skin, but I'll admit that negative comments bother me. They bother every artist. We do what we do to make others happy, and if we fail in that endeavor, it makes us feel bad. Any artist who denies that is either lying, or not in it for the right reasons (in my opinion). That being said, the guy's comment on my YouTube video... kinda bothered me.

How to get InspiredCommunity WeekHow to get Inspired1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever had one of those times when you really feel like drawing but had no idea what to draw? Or have you ever had an artblock you've desperately wanted to get rid of? Art is super fun, but it sucks when you just can't draw when you really want to. Here are a few of mine and a few other artists' tips to get inspired, and hopefully it'll help you!
Okay let's start!
1. Make an OC
OCs, or original characters, are a great source of inspiration. If you have none, make one! It's super fun to design your own character, especially since it's original so you can go crazy with it! Think up a personality for your OC, as well as their hobbies and interests, and even a back story, so that they seem real. Whenever you're out of ideas to draw, you can draw your OC. If your OC is well-developed, you might even develop a loving for them and long to draw them all the time .
2. Make Adoptables

The 2010 reboot by Lauren Faust (fyre-flye), “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,” had its start on DeviantArt where Lauren originally posted the early concept art which would later evolve into the ponies we know and love today
