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 Up4 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
a Tremendous THANK YOU!To all the Bronies and Pegasisters out there, I wanted to shout out a very humbled Thank You! The announcement for the comic came Thursday morning from SDCC, and since then the response has been dramatically overwhelming, uplifting, and positive... and the book is still months away! It's 6 am as I write this, as I've been too excited to sleep recently!a Tremendous THANK YOU!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
on another note, there have been a LOT of questions... I'll try to give a blanket coverage here to what I can.
First, I cannot give you sneak peeks. Sorry, but waiting is part of the game and half the fun! When IDW and Hasbro give a thumbs up, it will come here first!
Second: Yes, these are original stories (no, I'm not gonna tell you what it is yet!), not adaptations of existing episodes. This gives us the chance to do things that maybe couldn't be done in an episode due to time restriction or other limitations! The target audience is the exact same as the show, meaning it will be great for kids and adults alike. We know what a major fa
seagullsI was sitting on the beach with Eleanor and we were staring at two seagulls a few feet away from us. They were staring at us, hoping for some of the potato chips we were eating.seagulls3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Stupid scavengers," Eleanor said.
I watched the birds, saying nothing for a minute. But then I said:
"They're noble birds of the sea, not stupid scavengers. Look at how beautifully they are colored, the same as the sand and the clouds in the sky. And look at how their beaks are made to stick deep into the sand to burrow for crabs. And look how elegantly they hold their position against the wind, and how they can fly for great distances across the open sea."
We stared at the birds.
"They are beautiful, dad."
"I know, Eleanor. It's a little sad."
"Well, Eleanor, it is because of humans that they are distracted from their noble, original purpose. And what of our original purpose? Are we so much different? Look at us, chasing after cars, money, power, fashion, position. How much different ar

This year has been full of crazy ups and downs for me, unfortunately more downs than ups - but that happens sometimes. Been going thru a lot of HUGE life changes in the past short while and I want to extend my thanks again to EVERYONE who has supported me throughout all this. It means more than you'll ever know. Here's looking to a brighter new year and to starting over.
I'll be leaving for Christmas vacation tomorrow and won't be back till just after the new year, so again, I wish you all a very happy Christmas and safe New Year. Also, please don't be alarmed if I don't respond to messages right away...I'll be away from the computer for the next week. Besides, this is a time to spend with family and friends and those you care about!
Take care everyone,
Lots of love,

so many amazingly talented people and the everfree people were so accommodating and everything was so much fun and everyone said so many nice things to me and when I got on the stage to introduce a band I got as far as "hi I'm will anderson" before the applause was so deafening you would have thought the beatles were on stage. It was so humbling.
I don't even know where to begin so I won't.

Inspiration: What Did Princess Ukok Look Like?Found here at the Mary SueInspiration: What Did Princess Ukok Look Like?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The mummified remains of "Princess" Ukok, as the scientists named her, was discovered nearly twenty years ago in the Altai mountain range in East-Central Asia. Kept for all that time in Novosibirsk, Russia, it was not until very recently that she's been revealed to the rest of us. But among the general wonder and fascination that always comes with finding mummified and ancient bodies, Princess Ukok has another: She's covered in remarkably preserved, completely badass tattoos.
People have been tattooing themselves and each other for almost as long as humanity has existed; it just seems embedded in human nature to adorn our bodies in one way or another, whether through cheap drugstore eyeshadow or ancient ritual inking.
Princess Ukok and her warriors are believed to be members of the Pazyryk nomads who existed as early as the 5th century BC when they were

THE VOICE ACTING TRYOUTSWhy hello there! You all might have been wondering about my recent poll about voice acting.THE VOICE ACTING TRYOUTS4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, obviously, I will tell you.
I'm kinda bored of looping animations and I wanted to experiment more with short animations that actually end for once with a replay button. But I like shorts that have sounds, music, voices, all that good stuff in a movie. So what I'm thinking, I'm going to get me some voices! How do I do that? well, First of all, I'll have some try-outs for some of my characters and such. Best voice gets to be picked as the character! However, I won't have you choose which character, for it's going to be harder to try and act it out as them, so what I'm going to do is to have you try your best with voice acting, and I'll put you under the character that suits your voice the best!
How will I know? Simple, I'll have a list of lines for you to say, and in a tone, try to speak it. Some lines will be only for males, females, and some lines for both genders. I won't say how or what

Geeze. Who of thought. A year ago I would have called myself crazy and now here we are. There have been ups and downs. Lots of artwork was made.
Let's give kudos to some people.
First and foremost, I like to thank my little sis who's been so supportive of me and she's a supporter of AppleDash and Twilestia. Haha! Also to all my real life friends who support me. Big shoutout to Jay and Shiney!
Second I must thank Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye: and Studio B. Without her and the team at Studio B, none of this would've happen. She did something not many could do: Revitalized a franchise that is more than a 30 minute commercial to sell toys. She made something so awesome that everyone can enjoy it. So thank you for everything Lauren and Studio B many times over.
Shout out to Vixy who introduced me to Sonic Rainboom. You ruined my life with MLP!

Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:
