I have NOTHING but good things to say about the folks I’ve had the pleasure of talking to, hanging out with and calling my friends in the My Little Pony fan community. When it comes down to it, everyone is here because of one reason- they like the tiny horse cartoon. Bottom line. I’ve never run into a single instance of the legion creepy, pervy, fedora-wearing, neckbeard misogynist bullies that are claimed to populate every pony-friendly website and convention.
Quite the contrary, I’ve had a wonderful time every step of the way and I appreciate EVERYONE I’ve joined along the ride- bronies and nor/mlp/eople, artists and musicians , VAs and staff, men, women, kids a

THANK YOU Sam Vincent and DHX!!!!All the VAs I've had the pleasure and honor of making art for have been incredibly sweet to me, sending me lots of gifts and swag over the past year. But Saturday, when I opened my occasionally-hornet infested mailbox (Seriously, it's like the hard mode version of checking the mail,) I had the most incredible present in the history of pony waiting for me!THANK YOU Sam Vincent and DHX!!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oh, and bees. But really, let's just focus on the non-stinging, awesome gift part of this story:
What you see here are three posters signed by the entire cast and crew of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! The unbelievably wonderful Sam Vincent, my best friend forever and ever and ever and voice of Flim of the Flim Flam Brothers managed to get me every signature of just about every person on the My Little Pony team through a combination of persistence and- I suspect- no small amount of cornering people and shoving a sharpie into their hand. Threats and/or bribe

EQG is like Elseworlds. Sure sometimes Batman is a cowboy vampire pirate, but not really.
If you really fall in love with Gay Vampire Pirate Cowboy Batman, its okay. You can write fanfic, draw fanart, cosplay, and tell yourself (and anyone who will listen) that somewhere out in Universe 683492 Apple, Batman is swinging from a bonaventure mizzen with a stetson and a Winchester rifle, drinking the blood of brooding young men with pouty lips and exceptionally smooth legs.
If you hate Vampire Cowboy Robot Mormon Batman you can pretend it never happen and stick to the regular comics series where he's just a time traveling caveman.

Is it silly to get sentimental about characters?(Doodle included!)Is it silly to get sentimental about characters?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Even though Spitfire isn't really my character, sometimes I get all sappy thinking about all the stuff "we've been though"
I mean it if it weren't for Spitfire and my blog I wouldn't have started drawing again, gotten into digital art, by extension, have a job, my boyfriend, it's kind of insane all the stuff that's happened because I decided to run a Spitfire blog. Anyway just reflecting on stuff.
I doodled this thing up real quick, though I plan to make a nice version of something like it in the future.
The Molestia Thing and Tumblr JusticeThe Molestia Thing and Tumblr Justice2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sexual exploitation is no joke, we all understand that. Having volunteered at a rape crisis center, I’ve heard heartbreaking stories and seen lives devastated by rape and sexual assault.
I applaud ANYONE concerned about these issues and willing to help with time and money. BUT trying to take down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies doesn’t amount to fuck-all. And sending someone money for a tee-shirt “supporting” taking down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies means even less than fuck-all.
If you want to lend assistance to something that matters, visit the websites of these 4-star rated charity organizations dealing with matters of rape, sexual exploitation, and women’s justice. Make a donation, volunteer your time, do something that MATTERS. Don’t be a tumblr warrior, be an actual hero and make a big damn difference.

About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Get used to it, because she's here to stay. And not just in the show.
We're introducing the updated version of season three's Twilight Sparkle into the comics as well.
We're asked about 5th person at our tables: "what do you think?" "Why did they do that?" "Are you gonna.." etc.
Since we work hand in hand with Hasbro, we never had any intention of NOT updating Twilight for the books as well.
And quite frankly... we are all about it!
Neither Katie Cook nor myself understand the hatred going on for having Twilight become a princess. Katie has made an outstanding point- Twilight may be the only popular character to have EARNED her crown... she worked for it, suffered for it, and it was awarded. She didn't marry into it, wasn't born into it (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, etc etc). That gives little girls a character that WORKED FOR WHAT SHE EARNED. One helluva example I think. And for Katie, with a little girl and another on the way... that's a great t

First Impressions - Rarity Takes ManehattanHmmmmmmmmmmm.............. I'm beginning to think that Meghan McCarthy is like some sort of mad genius throwing all of these ideas together that seemed destined for failure - changing the show's dynamic, having Williams write Fluttershy and Applejack episode, hiring four new writers, and having Polsky write a Rarity episode. That's the mad part, and the genius part is that nine times out of ten these completely off the wall plans work. Polsky could write a good Rarity episode, who knew. I don't have much to say about the episode, so here's some random thoughts.First Impressions - Rarity Takes Manehattan1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's like Suited for Success in reverse and without the contrivance.Remember my criticism about Rarity's transformation in The Return of Harmony? THIS is what I was talking about.It does seem like self-parody at times, and Polsky - for the most part - pulls it off; if anyone could it would be him.The song was good. The story was good. The humor was pretty good, but for once it didn't seem like that was Polsky's focus
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.
Keep it up

Based on the notes and messages I've been getting, folks seem concerned that I have been captured by the Illuminati and forced to fight in the underground thumb-wrestling circuit.
No worries my friends! The truth is far less exciting and, sadly, doesn't come with an awesome Champeenship Belt.
Babscon is coming up supah fast and while work has plot-blocked me from attending, I am making art for the entire cast and crew. That's over 20 VIPs. That's 20 unique pictures of ponies doing pony stuff for awesome people I admire and want to impress. Most of the requests came in the latter half of March so time has definitively NOT been on my side.

I stayed awake for the remainder of the night lying there thinking, it was about 7:00 when I got up to use the bathroom. When I got back I made sure Jeff was still asleep. Thank God he was. I crept back into the bed after I got settled Jeff pulled me into his chest like teddy bear. He took off his mask and looked at me. "Morning beautiful." he said. I looked down blushing I noticed he was in his boxers. "Enjoying the view?" he asked seductively. "A little." I said almost having a fucking nose bleed. I turned away from his face still blushing and holding my nose just in case my phone than rang. I jumped out of the bed grabbing it my ringtone was 'Blood' by My Chemical Romance. "Hello?!" I said lifting my head out of the covers. "Hello (Y/N)! Is that you!" said Taylor.
"Hey!" I said.

It's finally finished! It's been several months in the making, and took the dedicated efforts of some very passionate people to complete.
For those of you who may not know, Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony is a documentary (Produced by Michael Brockhoff, Executive Produced by John de Lancie, Tara Strong and myself) that endeavors to enlighten anyone who may be curious about who this unexpected fandom is comprised of, and just exactly why these adults are so passionate about something that was never intended for them.
You can purchase the documentary for download HERE!!!!
A gigantic thanks to all the generous backers who funded the film on Kickstarter. Your enthusiasm and support ensured the film could be held to a very high production standard. Additional thanks to the contributors: the bronies who agreed to be interviewed and/or to share their st

800 points = around $10.
400 points = around $5
40 points = ¢50
Do you really want to spend a long amount of time on a drawing only to receive the equivalent of half a dollar?
If you want to share things for cheap or free because you enjoy doing it than by all means do so, but what I'm saying is, don't under value yourself, and for the love of god don't do commissions for 5 or 10 points. You're working for next to nothing if you do that.
What you need to do is find a good place to sell your art so you can sell it at a reasonable fair price that's fair to both you and the buyer. There are places around on dA for this.
Commissions-R-Us say that "A group dedicated to helping people in the search of commissions to be made, allowing them to find somebody to request a commission from deviants at different ways to pay, such as using the Deviantart Points, paypal, etc.
We also have a Priority Commission List for those who are in need of money! Please check them out

Many artists start their Devious Journey with the mindset that they will acquire Internet Fame.
Usually in the form of:
1. Thousands of adoring fans
2. Turning a profit from your hobby
My (let's call it) "Tutorial" will not show you how to con or manipulate people. I will simply show you how, with perseverance and kindness, you can attain valuable friends, an understanding of yourself(and your art), and irreplaceable golden memories!
Seem too good to be TRUE? Nonsense! All this is within each of our grasps.
It may take longer for some than others, but one can not achieve success without a little elbow grease.
