Or madam. As you prefer.
I have an update- the reports are true. Volume 4 pencils are done! Every story page in the book is penciled, and merely awaits color, your eminence.
Chapter 10 is blocked, and nearly all of Chapter 11. Chapter 12 is in the works. So I ought to be able to bulldoze in and start shading up a storm. I'm hoping I can KO about a Chapter's worth of shading every month.
To hit that stride, I'll have to take a break here and build a Prelude pad, KO a few commissions, try to get caught up on e-mails and... egads, when is the last time I replied to someone in the art accounts?
Bad, bad David.
I'm being stingy with samples from Volume 4 here because I want to avoid spoilers. But have some random art advice:
One of our freelancers was interested in how to draw fabric- what makes it look natural, that sort of thing. I doodled this up. The most helpful analogy we dis

And now I have come to the conclusion that any technology within a five foot radius of me spontaneously stops working properly.
except, y'know, if said technology involves ponies or any other freelance artstuff, but when it's time to do schoolwork "WHOOPS MY CODE BROKE "
But it's all good because at least I wasn't the only one who didn't have a fully rigged/posed character in Maya! Got the textures done on my crane and now I'm not going to look at it for at least another week.
And now I am going to bed.

And I got my OC rainbowfied..
It's a mess. A mess that is getting done.
Also, if anyone's complaining, note that my videos are much more visually intestine than others (Tommy, Digi, ect.) because they're not just straight up commentary..which takes longer than the average video. If you haven't noticed that already..
In the words of one of my editors..
"I SPENT 25 MINS MAKING A COOKIE BOUNCE OFF OF MEGHAN MCARTHY'S HEAD. Comically!"
What is life?
Also, for those asking about the "Secret Project" and the likes of that, it's still a thing. A done thing, pretty much...but we've decided to delay the release until after Sily Filly's "Fall of An Empire" is out to avoid any problems. They'll be a video about that as well as maybe a finale trailer in the coming weeks.
And that's your news update!
My Little Rants: Princess CelestiaPrincess Celestia is the benevolent co-ruler of Equestria, ruling alongside her younger sister, Princess Luna. She is shown to be kind and caring, and would do anything to protect her subjects. She also isn't your typical princess, as she occasionally loves playing pranks.My Little Rants: Princess Celestia9 months ago in Personal More Like This
How is she depicted by the fans, though? She's a "tyrant", and a "molester", and a "troll". I must've been watching the wrong show, then. Because I don't remember her acting like any of these things. Really, the closest thing she came to "trolling" was in A Bird in the Hoof, and even then it was only one scene and only in good fun. Her subjects were getting tense out of fear in upsetting their princess and she just wanted to lighten the mood. Just because she's a princess doesn't mean she can't have a bit of fun every now and then.
She did not banish Luna to the moon for 1000 years, she banished Nightmare Moon. She and Luna may have shared the same body, but it was Nightmare who was in ful
Thoughts on saddles in MLPOr "my brain at three in the morning".Thoughts on saddles in MLP1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I find myself puzzled at the thoughts of saddles in the MLP universe. In my exploits of mentally roleplaying characters for my comics they seem to see saddles as fashion statements, while a good portion of the Brony fandom consider saddles to be just short of sex toys.
But consider these;
Mind you they put these things on with the full intent of wearing them in public. If saddles really are a fetish thing in Magical Ponyland then why in
Equestriathe world are they wearing the things in a public place, where others are bound to see them and form not-so-safe thoughts in their heads?
I will simply continue to believe they're a fashion statement don't you mix your dirty thoughts with my ponies D:<

Is there a way for both races, both dreamkeepers and nightmares, to co-exist
peacefully without further conflict? I mean, given into account that the dreamkeepers
used to have all sorts of powers before the law came down, there must be someone
in that world that can adjust a non-conflict spell to encompass the globe, turning
the two races into something like negative and positive magnets, in which they
would never be able to attack the other or even get close enough to harm each
other with violence, save for those who live in their own races. Or a emotion-manipulating
spell that causes nightmares to be friendly and non-hostile whenever they encounter
a dreamkeeper, and vice versa for dreamkeepers as well.
If someone could brainwash other sentient beings on a scale sufficient to change
the balance of global reality, I could only imagine the hell of unexpected side
effects that would ensue. And even then the change would only last
Ideals vs CharactersI am always amazed at what ends up being “controversial” in my artwork. While with some works I KNOW it’s going to be controversial (such as any time I bring up politics or religion), there are often a lot of times where I just make a gag strip and think nothing of it... only to come back the next day and see people writing up ESSAYS on why it’s the worse thing ever.Ideals vs Characters1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Granted, I have the undesirable position of having a lot of people following me who insist on inserting drama where no drama really exists. So part of that is just the fact that I’m semi-famous on the internet. And still... It just baffles me how quickly people feel the need to see the worse in everything.
Right now, the past couple of NSYAC strips featuring Emily and Jade have gotten some... interesting responses. There seems to be this strange perception that Emily MUST conform to some arbitrary standard of a righteous educational achiever simply for the fact that she’s going to colleg

The above photo was linked to from this article that I read a few weeks ago. I really don't want to make my Journal into a political soapbox, but this has been bugging me nonstop for weeks and I feel I have to say something.
I like this dude. I really do, I like that he's taking a stand for what he thinks is right, but...that little sign isn't sending the message Guy was going for :I
This may just be my interpretation, but...when I first read that sign, it gave me the impression of "it takes a strong woman to tell us men what to do". Unbeknownst to Guy, he's putting down half the world's population, by making the claim that they don't, and possibly can't, know any better, unless guided by a strong woman who does. Circumstantial evidence tells me Guy is fighting for the caus

Who named Mace and Whip?
When we first began talking about the idea of a story in the dream world, my
roommate Brad named Mace. Then I named Whip, and the ball was rolling.
Number 1: Where did you get the idea for this comic and how has it changed
throughout the years?
My roommate Brad was having nightmares in college, and mentioned how awesome
it would be if there was a protector in his dreams to fight them off. This got

It was originally planned to be a pitch for a TV show, but I switched it

I can't help but feel sympathetic for them. They've made their mistakes in previous updates, but how do you think they must feel if they know they can't make a sensible update without getting major backlash?
I mean, come on people, you're getting riled up about stars. Things that the staff coded in order to allow newer users the benefit of actually understanding what the symbols mean at first. You may be asking me, "Why couldn't they just check out the FAQ instead to find out?". Most of us I'm assuming wouldn't figure to do this first, as it's only a small symbol - nothing that bothering. I honestly didn't realize there were symbols there until I started using :dev so-an-so:'s, about 6 months ago, and I've been here for 2 years.
I'd like you to put yourself in their position:
You've just created a site update that you're excited to share with the world - it allows easier understanding of the system, and even looks kinda cute. You suppose it might need
SO I'M QUITTING THE IZ FANDOMLol just kidding. *edit* GEEZ GUYS sorry about all the heart attacks. Don't sue me. *End edit*SO I'M QUITTING THE IZ FANDOM3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But anyway, I DO have some things to talk about, in regards to the fandom... I've been here for years, watching as people pick up and leave the IZ fandom, and the main reason ISN'T because they want to work on original stuff--it's because they think the fandom is too immature, and creepy, and utterly out of control. They get tired of the ZADR, OOC crap, fan characterXcanon character, Mary Sues and Gary Stus, impossible irken hybrids (like irken with a dragon or irken with a demon, uhhh) and many hyperactive, young/underage people who are in the fandom.
I can see why people think this, and I don't blame them. To be honest, there are a lot of individuals who arrrree like that...mostly just immature. And yeah, you'll find that in pretty much every fandom, or at least the "pairs EVERYTHING with EVERYTHING else" part. Then again, immature people usually grow up and out of that stage. of course th
