Alicorn TwilightAt the moment, the episode has not come out yet. Though, alicorn Twilight has been something hinted at since season one, and as a writer I am excited to see change and appreciate the possibility of having some clarity on the mythology of Equestria. I highly doubt the show creators would break the friendship of the characters, nor would they make Twilight "Outlive" her friends. Remember who the target audience is: Young, impressionable little girls with dreams of being their own princess in some way. To see a character they are familiar with becoming a princess, not from being related to royalty but instead from her own hard work and diligence is inspiring for a young child.Alicorn Twilight2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've seen many princesses who are given this role from the start. Our poor, Disney girls always pining for something more, sitting in their sheltered life longing for a prince or an adventure. Instead, we are seeing a young woman who has EARNED her place as a princess from her kindness, knowledge, and her experienc
A RetrospectiveHello Ryceballs! So I was looking through my god awful gallery the other day and had a nostalgic moment when I saw some of my old artworks, I am happy to say that I have improved over the 5 years stay here on Deviantart (Thank god...). So I just want to show you a few of my earlier artworks and talk a little about the story behind each one of them. I must admit that the early artworks you see on this list is not REALLY the first few artworks I uploaded on Deviantart, but I have since got rid of my even older ones because I really really dislike them, I don't want you guys to vomit blood ok. If you guys REALLY want to see the ones I have deleted.. I guess I can dig into the abyss of my old computer and find it. Anyways here goes!A Retrospective2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Pink pillow girl birthdayPink pillow girl birthday4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Warning: You may not care
But I've found a small piece of paper when I was cleaning my studio, It has some memo written on it, [such as old commission /art trade orders when I was a student], And I accidentally found that 25 August is my Pink pillow girl birthday. [the first day I've drawn/designing her on my sketchbook] her birthday was also written the that paper as well.
Link for anyone who don't know what the pillow girls are http://emperpep.deviantart.com/gallery/4305220 [They are my original characters]
I barely remember my Green pillow girl birthday, It was around 13-18 April, I can't remember the exact date because I forgot to write a date on her first picture.
And White pillow girl birthday is still a mystery, I can't remember it ...at all ,Because I can't find the first picture of her through a big pile of my sketchbooks. 8'C
I hope I will find her birthday soon, But
Heart's Desire: the making ofI'm no cartoonist, but I'm pretty sure someone out there is going to appreciate this (I've always wanted to make these things, anyway!). Here I go in depth about the writing and artistic process of making the "Heart's Desire" comic that seemed to be fairly successful. It's a tad long-winded, but if you're interested at all it in the details, here it is.Heart's Desire: the making of3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The artistic process was fairly simple and made easy because I had scaled down the original image. The sketches were actually twice as large, but SAI couldn't handle that size. Reducing it helped me significantly, since it was what made the whole process really fast and done in less than a week.
It starts off with a basic sketch; most of the scenes had already been imagined in my head, with just the ending sequence being sketched out on the whim.
Outlines were refined, as well as black borders. I just filled the entire canvas black and cropped out squares for the panels. Not a really good idea for comic making, but I ne

Think for a second about the nearly impossible amount of strength it would take to cut a living vine the thickness of a small tree with something as dull as a window without being able to build any momentum.
Alright, let’s do this.
Applejack exerted a certain amount of psi onto a large vine and broke it. How much psi can Applejack generate without a sweat?
We’ll work in SI units in this exercise.
One pascal (SI unit of pressure) is N / m^2
N = newtons of force applied
m^2 = meters squared where pressure is applied.
Let’s first find how many pascals the windowframe first exerts on the vine because of gravity.
N = 9.8 (the gravitational pull of the earth).
A dull window would have a large area exerting force, compared to a sharp, small edge. Various window measurements from Hom
Alicorn TwilightSo, between here and twitter, I've received some questions about the news regarding Twilight Sparkle becoming a princess- what do you know? How does it affect the book? Why, where, who, what, etc.Alicorn Twilight2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The short of it is, it's really not up to me to say. I understand your curiosity, etc, but it's not my place to say the things any of us involved may or may not know. First, there's contracts and the like in place. Second, you never know when things will change. Third, I just don't like spoiling things! Hasbro is the one steering the ship here, we're just passengers along for the ride.
A lot of fans are up in arms. to quote my favorite starship captain, "People can be afraid of change."
And, to quote my favorite Hawaiian PI, "Probably the only thing you can count on in life is change .... that no matter how much you wanted things to stay the same they never did, and that change itself wasn't bad. It's just that, the transitions were sometimes tricky. "
All of us just have to be patient and se

"After the events of Page 36, Rick is feeling a bit down. And by down I mean rock bottom. He needs a little pick me up and this is a challenge for all those brave enough. The challenge is for you to draw your Pokemon Trainer OC (Nuzlocke if you have one) giving him a big ol' hug to cheer him up."
There will be 3 categories
- "Most Heartwarming"
- "Most Funny"
- "Most Creepy"
- Hugging is the most physical thing your OC is allowed to do. Anything else and Rick will most likely eat them. Sorry Shippers
- For all intents and purposes, Rick has never met your Pokemon OC before this random hug. [This rule only really affects people who I RP with]
-You can enter in all categories, but can only submit one pic for each one.
Being that I am a poor Mad, the prizes here aren't very prestigious. These are the best I can do...
1st - A Free Commission and a Cameo in "Red Madness"

PET ONE OF THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wildlife Learning Center is a small, fantastic zoo in Sylmar, CA. They care for a menagerie of exotic animals and train them as ambassadors to help educate the public about wildlife preservation. Many of their animals are rescues from pet owners who kept them illegally, or rescues from the wild where various injuries would make their survival impossible. The fundraiser is being held to raise money for the animals' care.

Floored.So I was just going thru a folder on my desktop that contains pretty much every single piece of fan art I've gotten since this whole pony craze began. And I sat back and stopped and realized - holy hell, this is just...amazing. I mean, every time I get something new, I am so flattered at the fact that somebody would want to take their time out to draw something for *me*. It boggles my mind, but I love each and every one of them...regardless of skill level.Floored.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just had a moment where I just felt completely moved with happiness at the thoughtfulness and generosity...and I just wanted to say thank you AGAIN to everyone and anyone who has taken time out of their daily lives to be creative and share that with me. It means the world.

So we finally welcome back season 3 of MLP! I'm very excited for this season to unfold, and I hope that all of you are avoiding all the spoilers and commercials like you should be!
Next week, my first episode of season 3 airs, "Too Many Pinkie Pies." I had a blast working on this episode with my amazing board partner Dave. I have never gotten to do a full-on Pinkie Pie episode, so this was definitely a fun one for me.
Looking forward to seeing more fan content, I'm always amazed at all the talent out there!
Hope ya'll enjoy!

Also more questions: Is it canon? That's really up for the reader to decide, as far as I'm concerned. We ARE working in conjunction with Hasbro, so they have a say in all story elements, if that gives you a better perspective. This is the closest to show canon it's going to get, folks!
These are new stories? YES, not retellings of episodes, all new all original stories.
Is this only a mini-series? Not really. The first story arc is 4 issues, but there is already more planned! We have no intention of stopping!
Are you selling the original art? Yes, the original art will be up for sale after a little bit. Prices aren't set yet, offers will be taken. One thing I will say is that the 6 covers for issue one are to be sold as a complete set.
Are you doing all the art? Yes, I am doing all interior art. There are multiple artists doing the covers.
Back to work for me, see you in Cincinnati, Bronies & Pegasisters!

I don't think I've ever laughed so much hahaha XD It was so uncomfortable to watch in the best way possible! It totally caught me off guard. I've been watching this all day yesterday and today. Made me realize how much I miss listening to J-Pop. I need to get back into it again.

Alumni TalkSo I went to this animation alumni talk thing today for my school. I left feeling inspired and horrified.Alumni Talk3 months ago in Personal More Like This
There were plenty great success stories that got me pumped and made me want to work harder and just animate all day. There were also a lot of failure stories which made me worried about what kind of future I might have. All these alumni were no doubt very talented, but even so, for a lot of them, finding a job was very difficult just because the animation industry is beyond competitive and your skills have to be exactly what your director wants. If they don't like your style, you won't get hired there. Of course each studio is different and it depends on what kind of TV show, or commercial, movie you work on. It was awesome being able to talk to these people and hearing about their journeys. I got to hear about some people working for FOX on Bob's Burgers, people working at ADHD (who did this video which I love), and pe
