Derpy is the Everypony We NeedAll the anti-ableism people that support censoring Derpy Hooves are the real ableists. They are upset that someone dares to be not normal in a cartoon for children because it might offend the special needs children. So who's being the real ableist here? Could it be that you are the person that's offended because you feel guilt? And that you're projecting your own feelings onto others?Derpy is the Everypony We Need3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Edit: My follow up response to comments of: 'think of the children' and the 'in real life why don't you care about...': http://fav.me/d4r6oo1
Good news and bad news. Derpy got the voice we should have had to begin with. The bad, uncrossed eyes and no mention of her name in the episode. Best news: there's now fan versions of the episode that keep the original Rainbowdash conversation and animations, but keeps the new voice. Also the dvd version of the episode is the origi

When our beloved series hits the point of overuse, when it seems hasbro is just... Milking it
When the love and joy is no longer possible to be obtained, when it...
Becomes just another stupid show that makes you think.
"Remember back when it was good?"
What will you do, will you keep your title as a brony(Or whatever variation of it you prefer) or will you act as if you never were part of the shows history.
Will you proudly wear the images you drew, share the stories you made, and promote the games you played.
Or be bigoted to the antiquated and lost views times has played repeatedly.
When it's all said and done, will you still care... Who's best pony?
My two cents on Las Pegasus Unicon.Everyone seems to be in agreement that they want to know more about what went wrong at LPU- so I'm going to offer up some of what I've seen/heard. In many cases, I'm may omit names- so if I say "a VA" or "a musician", just please respect that I want to pass on observations, but also respect those affected persons.My two cents on Las Pegasus Unicon.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I get into the details, I've mentioned before that I'm not a fan of Vegas, but I want to get something off my chest about the choice of location.
Las Vegas is not a children-friendly venue. It's Casinos and Strip Clubs and Alcohol and Prostitutes and Clouds of Cancerous Choking Cigarette Smoke EVERYWHERE!!! My Little Pony is a show for children that became so much more- it became something we all love and enjoy- but the cons are supposed to bring everyone together, and this was not a venue for the demographic that mattered the most. Las Vegas is a playground for adults.
You might be wondering why I'm ranting about this... and here it is: &
How to get attention on deviantArtThis is probably the one question that every artist on deviantArt asks: how can I be popular? How can I make the front page?How to get attention on deviantArt5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are many different answers to this. I've given examples of my photos along with each point to explain.
-Be Dedicated. In order to be popular, you need to have a dedication to photography, drawing, writing, etc. Writing is exceptionally difficult to make the front page with, because many people are on here just for photography and fan art, not writings. For photography, you need to upload a lot and ask a lot of questions. Just give it a shot. It's okay to mimic your favorite artists, just not too thoroughly. Mimicking helps you see how to get better, and what makes a good photo. You can also think about sending notes to your favorite photographers. Trust me, when I first did, I was extremely intimidated, and thought they wouldn't have enough time to answer me. But most people on here are immensely understanding and nice to your situation, becau

Embroidery Digitizing Program SuggestionsAs you may or may not know I have an embroidery machine now. You can see some of its work in action on Trixie's alicorn amulet. I've been using Stitchera to digitize. It's the only program I'm familiar with and I'm comfortable with it, but it has some major flaws. After December 31st I'll also have to pay $96 a year to keep using it or a whopping $1000 to buy the program if I upgrade from Universal to Liberty. Now if the program didn't have major flaws, I wouldn't mind that and it is quite possible that Liberty gets rid of some of the flaws that Universal has, but I'm not paying $1000 to find out. The one MAJOR issue I have with Stitchera is that it does not save manual edits when you flip a file. So, say, you were digitizing an eye file and had to move a few stitches manually to get them placed right. If you flip the eye those edits go away and you have to redo them entirely! How are you supposed to do that perfectly? You canEmbroidery Digitizing Program Suggestions1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Some butthurt parent told Hasbro that "derpy" was a negative term for mentally disabled, which is not the case.
They've taken down the episode in which Derpy speaks, and they're going to get rid of her completely.
Derpy is really the thing that makes Bronies proud. We created her, and now they're trying to take her away

It's a bit larger than your usual patch size, but considering the shape of the patch, only parts of the text "labels" might stick out a bit when placed on an uniform.
Available in both "dark" and "light" versions.

Salutations, readers! Welcome to what I hope will be a recurring installment in my journal: Kobrakin's Greatest Hits!
Now, during my long recovery period from the herniated disc in my back (which is almost totally back to normal now!), I have been unable to work on any of my writing. As such, the primary contributions I've made to DA in the past few months have been in the form of my comments.
Now, these comments are ones that I put a great deal of effort into writing and staging with appropriate "Plz" icons. Currently, most of them are My Little Pony related, but I still have a good deal more comments left to dig up. These are just the ones I could find with minimal effort. For each comment, I will supply a link to the comment directly, and a link to deviation I made it on. Pretty much all of them are inspired by the artwork or story I was commen

On fandom, fans, and trollsI just flew in from Seattle, and I had a great time. In many ways it was one of the best cons I've been to. For my own part, everyone I met and encountered, from staff to attendees to VAs to friends old and new, were positive and the people incredibly kind and brilliant. I was witness to countless incidents of generosity and honesty and solidarity.

But, sadly, it seems not every experience this past weekend was so positive.
Before My Little Pony I had no real experience with the concept of fandom beyond what I read with horror, and, admittedly a certain amount of amusement on internet websites and forums. But here I am, happily lost in a sea of technicolor unicorns and pegusi. I can't say I've been part of the MLP fandom since it began, I was actually somewhat late to the world of ponies.

Now, I don't like getting involved with the latest Brony news and hype, but I feel it necessary this time to state my absolute disgust and concern over something I was made aware of this evening. The fan reaction to the up and coming Equestria Girls movie. First let me be clear, my feelings toward the movie, either being optimistic or pessimistic, plays no roll in this journal entry. I withhold all of my opinions on the matter. However, I learned that there has been a major uproar in the community, and a good number of degrading, and/or threatening emails have been made to both Hasbro and DHX Animation. I can not even begin to state how appalled I am after hearing this.
First off, nobody likes being negatively criticized. If you don't have something nice to say, t
