Pony OC Contest!

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 12, 2013, 4:37 AM
 photo PonyOCContestBanner_zps291804c6.png

Do you guys like contests? Of course you do!

In order to celebrate reaching over 500 watchers, and just as a general thank you to all you lovely people for the faves and comments, I'm running my first contest! Now, I know the most common contest is a watcher giveaway, but I wanted to do something a little more interesting...

So, what do I have to do?

Simple! Draw me your pony OC, upload it to DA and leave a link to it in this journal. Don't have an OC? Now's a good excuse to make one.

The rules

- Only submit your own OC
- Only submit your own drawing
- Only submit a PONY OC
- Entries can be digital or traditional
- Please don't use a pony maker/generator. I don't want to see any pony recolours - we can do better than Hasbro, right?
- You don't have to be a watcher or share this journal to enter (though I'd appreciate it if you did ;p)
- You also don't have to draw a new picture for this contest - if you already have one, just submit that.

Important stuff

First and foremost, this is a design contest. I will NOT be judging you on drawing skill. This is to make it more fair for everyone. I encourage everyone to have a go, no matter your skill level.

I am highly unlikely to pick a neon/rainbow/sparkledog type OC or one that is overly complex (I don't mean to offend anyone, but since this contest is based on my own taste I just want to give people a heads up). Alicorns won't be chosen at all.

What I'm looking for is all to do with the design - colours that complement each other, a well thought out Cutie Mark and an interesting mane and tail design. I want to see ponies that look like they could step out the show. If you want to add accessories - go for it!

The prizes!

There will be six winners total, one main winner, and five runners up. First place will win a custom plush of their OC made by myself, and each of the five runners up will receive a custom Parasprite plush, using the colour scheme of their OC.

I will however, need winners to pay for the shipping of their prizes. Sorry about that :(


I'll be accepting entries until the 1st of November, Australian Eastern Standard Time. That should give you all plenty of time to work on your entries.

As you may have noticed, I don't accept OC commissions at the moment, so this will be the only way to get an OC plush from me for a long time. So good luck to everyone who enters, and I can't wait to see your OCs!

New York City-based artist Alex Myung (~alexmyung) has started a Kickstarter project to raise $20,000 to create Arrival, an animated short film with a focus on the theme of coming out. Equalitopia sits down with Alex to discuss the project.

Currently, the project has raised almost $4,000 from 74 different backers, averaging out to about $52 per backer. Keep in mind that Kickstarter projects are “all or nothing,” meaning that if the project doesn’t reach its funding goal by Wednesday, February 20th, no funds will be transferred to the project.

Equalitopia: Could you tell us briefly about the storyline of Arrival?

Alex: Arrival is about a young boy growing up in the countryside with his mother, who moves to the city to pursue his dreams. Along the way he falls in love with another boy, but he struggles to connect with people as he contemplates coming out to his mother.

People have been curious, so here is most of the plot of Ignition Crisis, Now mind you, some things have been omitted and such

Ignition Crisis by SNEEDHAM507

Carl Nadez is a Mercenary who was in a relationship with Sarah, who was an Interpol agent. They had an intesne Relationship that lasted like four years, but Sarah broke it off. So IC takes place about a year and a half after that

Carl has a new job protecting Klaus, who is the son of an Infamous arms dealer. Klaus is also being observed by Interpol, and Sarah is apart of the team. this is awkward at first, and the Sarah tries to get re assigned,m but can't. She eventually reveals herself to Carl after a botched attempt on Klaus life, when Carl was gonna kill the assassin, Scott E. Neadum. Carl and Sarah then have an awkward stage for about 6 months, with Carl trying to speak to her, and Sarah avoiding him. Sarah is also in a relationship with a fellow Interpol agent, Jak Doyle. Jak has fallen for Sarah, but Sarah has no real feelings for Jak. Jak and Carl fight for Sarah's attention, and in the end, Carl wins. While this is going on, more attmepts are made on Klaus's life, but Carl and srah are able to keep Klaus safe. After three months Klaus's mothers apartment is burned down, leaving them homeless. Sarah lets them into her home, which goes against her supervisors wishes, but she does it anyway. Carl and Sarah start their relationship again, though Sarah is often gone when Carl wakes. Carl's older sister shows up to make sure that Klaus's father doesn't make contact with his son, and is brought into the hassle with Carl and Sarah. Veronica warns Sarah not to hurt her brother again, as he almost killed himself after the initial break up.

While the Main story is definitely about Klaus well being and Carl and Sarah's relationship, there are alot of side stories, including Ramon, Carl and Veronica's younger brother, who gets in trouble with his sleeping around, and Carl has to return state side with Veronica to help sort out his issues. Another side story is Vaan, Klaus's older half brother, trying to expose his father's arms dealing, and his relationship with his bodyguard, Maria Sonet. Another is Whistler, a woman from Carl's past returing after five years with a surprise for Carl that could shatter his chances with Sarah.

The Story starts to take a dark turn when Kane, a notrious Mercenary, is hired by Klaus's father's competition, and he comes gunning for Klaus and Vaan. Despite Carl's, Sarah's, and Veronica's best efforts, Kane kidnaps Klaus. He doesn't kill the boy but does leave his mark on him, and ransoms him back to his father. Carl is fired for letting this happen, but he stays to keep an eye on Klaus. Klaus is shaken, and even more reclusive after this. Kane's Protege, Zwei, takes an interest in Carl, and continues to harass Carl and his group while his boss is away on business. During these events, Sarah becomes Pregnant, and is concern with what to do. She was pregnant before, and had a miscarriage, and didn't want to go thru it again, and was very close to getting a abortion before Carl was informed. Without knowing who the father was, being either Carl or Jak, Sarah was forced to go thru with the pregnancy. She gives birth to Titus, who resembles his mother all the way, leaving who his father a mystery for awhile more. While it strongly applies that it is Jak, Sarah is convicned that it is Carl's.

Ignition Crisis Ends when Klaus's father is killed trying to sell a nuclear weapon to a disgraced former US general, and Kane is also killed during the deal. Carl and Sarah adopt Klaus, and move into together.

Ignition Crisis Next Generation Story so far

So here is a summary of the overall story for Ignition Crisis Next Generation! Hooray!

Next Generation takes place 30 years after the events of Ignition Crisis, and focuses on Carl and Sarah's children, prominently their Daughter, Elena Nadez, and her adventures. While things do indeed happen in between the two, this gives a more precise time frame. Anyway back to story.

NG starts up with Elena graduating College. she spends about a month trying to find a career that would suit her, however the jobs offered to her seemed boring and not worth her time. She is approached by her professor to come with him and a group of students to Central America for a research project. Among the students going is Vince, someone Elena had a relationship while in College. He sign on in hopes to be with Elena again and patching up their relationship, however when they reach the country, they are split up into different towns. Elena is housed at a Local fisherman's residences, with the fishemrna's wife, kids, and the fisherman's brother. Elena's work in the town is to monitor the traffic of fishing vessels, and she is told to keep an eye out for vessels being manned by Caucasians, which is odd in the country. While there, she initially bumped heads with the Fisherman's brother, named Enrique. they would fight about how the world work, her and his up upbringings, education, and many things. After about a month, however, Elena and Enrique started to become close, and were only encouraged by Andrea's, Enrique's brother, and Perma, Andrea's wife. One day, a group of armed men entered the village demanding all of the fisherman and their boats to move cargo. During this, Andreas spoke out to them, and was about to be killed when Elena intervened. Being trained by her father in self defense and in general Combat, Elena proved to a match to the mercenaries, even being able to disarm their leader, a man by the name of Anthony Kreshikin. Desperate to save his own life, Kreshikin agreed to leave, but warned Elena that her employer wont allow this and he would come after her. Both Andreas, Enrique, and the village were thankful to Elena. After this, things escalated between Elena and Enrique. Ture to Kreshikin's word, more men enter the village at night, and pulled Elena out of her bed. About to be executed out in front of the whole village, Elena was saved by a old friend of Carl, the mysterious Jonathan Frisk. Frisk and his men killed all of the men who entered the village, and revealed to Elena that her professor was out to expose a war lord who used the fisherman in the village to move drugs, weapons, and sex slave inbetween the countries. Frisk warned Elena to leave, as staying would further enrage the warlord. When asked why Frisk was even there to help her, Frisk revealed that he promised Carl long ago that he would look after Carl and his kids, no matter when or how. Elena, not wanting to backdown, stayed. After two months without incident, however, the professor decided to head home, and Elena was left with a choice. She was torn between going back to her family, or staying with Enrique. Once again Frisk intervened, having procurred a passport for Enrique to use to come back with Elena. Andreas and Perma had Elena promise to take care of Enrique, as his temper would get him into trouble. Elena was also grateful to Frtisk, however when she went to thank him, he was gone, leaving only behind a letter to be delivered to Elena's father when she returned. While at the airport to go home, the mercenaries Elena had ran into before where there, and they warned Elena that the warlord knows who she is and will send someone for her. When asked why don't they do something to kill her, Kreshikin and his associated inform her they were paid of by a man to leave the war lords service and to never bother Elena again. When asked who the man was, they couldn't say. Also at the airport, Vince saw how close Elena and Enrique became, and something in him changed.

When Elena returned back to the states, the first thing anyone asked her about was why she was with Enrique. Despite her best efforts to explain, they were met with skepticism, except from her father and her younger brother, Alex. While she was gone, her older brother, Daniel, separated from his wife, Michelle, and was living back at home, and suffering from depression. Also her eldest brother, Titus, was once again quarreling with their mother, Sarah, leaving Elena to act as a peacemaker, as she had down before. Before leaving the airport, Elena gave her father the letter from Frisk, and briefly caught a glimpse of the man again, this time accompanied by Kreshikin and his associates. Before she could act on this, she had a trouble encounter with Vince, who was acting abnormal. When he tried to give her a kiss, Enrique intervened, and Vince left awkwardly. Back in Central America, the warlord was furirous about his failures and his men being paid off to leave him, and blames Elena for all of this. He hires a eccentric Killer from Thailand to find and kill Elena, however in paying him, he loses a large amount of his finical backing, as the killer was known for working with a rival of theirs.

Back home, Elena had her work cut out for her, tending to her brothers shattered ego, playing peace keeper with her mother and eldest brother, and the unwanted advances from Vince. Daniel is given a new partner after his old one broke his leg jumping over a fence. His first meeting with her was akward at best as he had to arrest her for indenct exposure after she was chasing a kid across a street topless. the Charges were dropped, and they started working together. The officer was named Naomi Anderson, a free spirited woman fresh out of the military and itching to get her life started. Naomi's personality was just the thing to charge up Daniel, as her constant up beat demeanor made Daniel more cheery. things, however get a bit complicated after one evening of heavy drinking ended with Naomi and Daniel Sleeping together in Daniel's parents house. Despite her best efforts of leaving stealthy the next morning she was caught by Carl and Alex in the kitchen while they were having Breakfast. Despite Sarah and Elena's objections, Daniel and Naomi kept seeing each other in a romantic way. Things escalate when Michelle comes back into Daniel's life, informing him she didn't leave him permanently, just to teach him a lesson and to get him to start appreciating her. Naomi was more then willing to let Daniel move on, and was about to ask for a transfer, however, Daniel, unable to choose, has a nervous breakdown. While this is going on, the man hired to kill Elena shows up, and starts tailing her. She notices right away, and not wanting to inform the others, she decides to confront him. this proved to be disastrous as the killer decided to take her on in a public setting. In the fight, Elena is slashed and breaks a few of her ribs and ankle, and several police officers and civilians are killed, as the killer wasn't interested in collateral. Once again Elena is saved by the intervention of Frisk, however Frisk is shot in the process. In the aftermath, Naomi stays at the Nadez household, to protect Elena and keeps an eye on Daniel. Frisk body wasn't recovered, giving hope to Elena, however she is now worried about her family.

One night the killer attack their house. Thinking it would be easy, he was met with strong resistances from Naomi, Carl, and even Sarah. He eventually retreated after a brief fight with a recovered Daniel, who threw the killer from a second story window. Safe for the time being, Elena is forced to reveal everything that happened during her trip, and her professor had to fess up that he knew more then he let on, being one of the warlords backers before being betrayed when a deal went south. Daniel and Naomi decide to take action, and gear up to go after the killer. After tracking him down thanks to Sarah's protege in Interpol, they are greeted by Kreshikin and his men, being sent by Frisk. They enter his hideout, and after several traps and fire fights, Daniel was successful in killing the killer, by breaking his neck after slamming him on the ground. Naomi is injured however, and while in the hospital it is revealed she is pregnant.

Ok guys, that is all i have so far! I have at least to more arcs in my head, but I'm still figuring out stuff!

Please be sure to let me know what you think!

Last year I sculpted up a few portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White from my favorite show "Breaking Bad". I was finally able to put the finishing touches on 3 custom figures of Walt, all of which were given to the creators of the show this past week.

It's been a helluva lot of fun, and a tremendous thrill to get to meet the artists behind this terrific show that has been so inspiring to me. Kinder people you will not meet!

So here's a look at the finished custom figures. These were pieced together from various sources, using Hot Toys bodies, and clothes I found on ebay and then altered. The heads were all painted by some talented friends of mine, and they really brought Walt to life. It's been a lot of work to try and piece these together in my free time, but I really enjoyed doing it.


ps- A random winner was chosen from my last giveaway. I'll do another giveaway in the coming months, I'm sure. :) thanks!

Got a weird treats for you all,

For years, whenever I've been intensively drawing a comic project I often felt the need the write myself some music. I've found out multiplying my creative output mysteriously benefit them all. There is, usually, no link bridging my Comic and musical world. Some fugues and some String Quartet sketches have been paired with Batman Incorporated for instance.

This time, being so enthusiast for swamp thing, I went and wrote the scored for issue 7 & 8.  OK, not really, but I've tried to cover their thematic stuff in a 3:16 of Full Orchestral Music.

Here a breakdown of the cues:
00:00 The timeless mystery of the Green
00:49 Growth and fate of the Green Warrior
1:36 The Rot
2:00 A bit of actionny big battle for those who got bored until now.

May you enjoy this roughs mix.

So it is Halloween.  I am a cosplayer.  Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays!  And I am always disappointed.  Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.

1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes.  They just ask for a little help.  On their giant full body armor masterpiece.  The week before Halloween.  Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you.  And the price?  Well, it's "for a friend" price.  Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime."  Sadface.

2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween.  Yes, I have over 60 costumes.  No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party.  One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would be somewhat popular.  How wrong I was.  The only response all night:  "R U A SEXY RACCOON?"

3) Stains.  Yes, stains.  As in, I do not want to wear my precious costumes that I spent workweeks creating to a bar where some jackass is going to back into me and spill a beer/neon drink all over it and stain it for ever.  No, "sorry" doesn't pay the drycleaner.  (A free shot might pay the drycleaner, depending on how many people I can convince spilled their drink on me.)

4) A general ennui for Halloween costume parties.  Maybe it's like dudes who watch too much porn.  I have been to so many insane costume conventions and judged so many awesome costumes that the run-o-the-mill mass-market store bought costume do not excite me.  I have been overstimulated.

5)  Losing costume contests to Vaginas.  It didn't happen to me.  But it could have, had I not heeded the cautionary tale told by my friend.  Hours of construction slavery, an afternoon getting into an uncomfortable costume, wasted only to lose to a gag costume  for a $1000 prize.  Not me.  No thanks.

So what is the solution for a cosplayer on Halloween?  Dress head-to-toe in full character and give props to the one person who recognizes you all evening?  Or just mix-n-match pieces in your cosplay wardrobe to create something recognizable?  Let me know what you went as for Halloween and why!

I plan to go super casual tomorrow if I go anywhere, that is.  I might just stay home in my robot pajamas.  Kind of a costume, right?

And if you are wondering about this awesome piece of art, it is a collaboration with multi-talented artist Justin Murray who is currently working on Mortal Kombat as a main character designer, hullo!  And he has worked on God of War, Alien vs. Predator, and lots of other projects.  Check out his crap!  (It's not crap, btw.)

Hey, if you haven't checked out my full collections of costumes, it's at!  CHACHACHECKIT.
