About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)2 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

Not a brony was stirring, the premier was soon to come.
The laptops were set to streaming sites with care,
In hopes that Twily and her pony friends would soon be there.
The bronies were nestled all snug in their beds,
While the message--love and tolerance--echoed within their heads.
It would seem that these last six months, have taken a century,
We only want our ponies friends--so kind and so cutesy
A few hours later, my mind was at rest,
But ponies were still present, which one was best?
Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, maybe crazy Pinkie Pie,
Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, or even Derpy.
I sat and I pondered that last question there,
For each pony I love, to prefer one just seems unfair.
This decision is not simple, I surely cannot decide,
For they all have strengths and weaknesses, the last one, walleyed.
Magic abound, Twilight enters the scene,
Celestia's student, the most capable she has ever seen.
To Ponyville she went, to
Top 5 Things I'd Like To See In S3 of MLP:FIMSeason 2 was a great followup from the awesomeness of Season 1 of Friendship is Magic. Not to mention that the Canterlot Wedding was a grand way to ending a great season. With Season 3 on the horizon, there are still a few things I hope to see. Keep in mind that this is all opinion based and feel free to comment on whether you agree or disagree with my point. You have your opinions and I have mind. With that said, here are my Top 5 things I'd like to see in Season 3.Top 5 Things I'd Like To See In S3 of MLP:FIM2 years ago in Personal More Like This
5. Interactions between Fluttershy and Applejack
Something that this show has done a great job with is developing relationships between ponies. For instance, while Look Before You Sleep was mainly AJ and Rarity fighting, in the end they settled their differences and worked together. Same can be said with Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy. You can see how they connect even though they are the exact opposite personality wise. (That and every shipping couple in the book has been done in fanfics) I don't recall seeing much interacti

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a
Hanging out with Weird AlI went to see my old bandmate Weird Al last night at the Pacific Amphitheater. We have been exchangng e-mails lately talking about MLP:FiM. I used to play in Weird Al's band, and have toured and recorded with him. We are good friends. All the guys in the band too. My homies. Especially Kimo and Bermuda.Hanging out with Weird Al1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Gee, wouldn't Al be a good guest star for MLP:Fim? Wow, seems like such a natural fit, don't you agree?
My daughter was supposed to record me chatting with him after the show but forgot to hit record...
Well, until we started talking about MLP. I just posted that on my You Tube page...
I miss playing live.
Man those guys are GOOD and TIGHT and play like monsters. And Al sang and performed his butt off. And the show is REALLY REALLY good.

EQG is like Elseworlds. Sure sometimes Batman is a cowboy vampire pirate, but not really.
If you really fall in love with Gay Vampire Pirate Cowboy Batman, its okay. You can write fanfic, draw fanart, cosplay, and tell yourself (and anyone who will listen) that somewhere out in Universe 683492 Apple, Batman is swinging from a bonaventure mizzen with a stetson and a Winchester rifle, drinking the blood of brooding young men with pouty lips and exceptionally smooth legs.
If you hate Vampire Cowboy Robot Mormon Batman you can pretend it never happen and stick to the regular comics series where he's just a time traveling caveman.
Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors2 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit

This Thursday, April 5, Bento Box will be hosting a silent art auction at the Animation Guild in Burbank CA to benefit storyboard artist Joey Adams and his family. I do not yet have the pleasure of knowing Joey, but the Los Angeles animation community is really rallying around him and his family's current crisis trying to save the life of one of their little boys--- only a couple years after tragically losing their 16-month-old daughter to a similar condition.

I will be more than happy to look into the matter if I have not already. Points added will be given Blue Bullets.Wesker-Wolf's Defense: Princess Celestia2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A recent "conversation" has brought to my knowledge a group dedicated to "protecting" the character, Princess Celestia, who is from the show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. If you know me, you know that I LOVE the character of Princess Celestia and that I've been a spazztastic little defender of hers ever since I became a fan of the show (My friends, ~Jandrus13 and ~Dusty-san know VERY well how I've been about that). I don't remember if I've ever written Journals about how I feel about her, but I know I've ranted and lectured people a bunch in the past about my feelings toward Princess Celestia and putting up logic and a good defense in her behalf for her actions in the show.
Now, it's importa

How to DrawI'm constantly reminded of some of the things a late instructor and very good friend of mine once taught me when I first set foot into college. His name was Thomas Flanagan. He was a very decorated individual, with a veritable wealth of knowledge and information about life, art, and how the two met in the middle. He was brutally honest in his critiques, and had no problem tearing your work apart and telling you everything that was wrong because he was that damn good. But if you kept your chin up and kept trying, he would never give up on you. He was a valued mentor and fast friend of many of his students and colleagues, and to this day, he is still sorely missed. But his lessons still ring loud in the minds of those fortunate enough to have been taught by him, and it's his broad scope of teachings and lessons that keep him and his legacy alive inside. I want to share some of those things with you.How to Draw2 years ago in Personal More Like This
