My plea to the fandom (PLEASE READ)Ok, I've been silent about this for far too long but with what I've been hearing lately, I cannot keep it quiet any longer. I have to get this off my chest. This is important for ANYONE in the My Little Pony fandom so you all had better read carefully.My plea to the fandom (PLEASE READ)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been hearing some rumors that some of the DHX staff have considered leaving the show because of all the hate against Equestria Girls.... There you go guys. You keep hating and we'll lose enough of the show staff that they may not be able to continue it all because you were being judgmental hypocrites.
Seriously, I lose a ton of respect for someone whenever I hear them say something negative thing about Equestria Girls. At first it was just a little bit of fandom butthurt but if it's gotten to the point where some of the DHX staff are irked by us, then action needs to be taken. And it is true, fans are complaining way too much about Equestria Girls. I've heard some people whine and literally give Hasbro and

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
MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide(Please keep an eye out for more helpful journals centered around plushie making! More will be made in the future!MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, keep checking back, as more characters and their colors will be added soon!)
MLP: Minky Color Guide:
Which minky color works best for ______ (insert MLP character here)?
This journal is an attempt to answer that question. There are more than 50 shades of minky out there, and as a plushie maker, I realize that it can be difficult to know which color will work best for the particular pony you're working on. This is made even more frustrating by the fact that many of the images of the minky do not show the true color!
I recently ordered a ton of swatches from fabric.com, and I'm continuing to collect swatches from various websites, in an attempt to get most of the minky colors. Because I have the actual fabric with me, I can compare it to the characters' colors to see which fits best, to ensure that you can make a plushie that is as show-accurate as possib
Twas the Night Before Ponies.Twas the night before ponies, when all through the fandomTwas the Night Before Ponies.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not a brony was stirring, the premier was soon to come.
The laptops were set to streaming sites with care,
In hopes that Twily and her pony friends would soon be there.
The bronies were nestled all snug in their beds,
While the message--love and tolerance--echoed within their heads.
It would seem that these last six months, have taken a century,
We only want our ponies friends--so kind and so cutesy
A few hours later, my mind was at rest,
But ponies were still present, which one was best?
Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, maybe crazy Pinkie Pie,
Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, or even Derpy.
I sat and I pondered that last question there,
For each pony I love, to prefer one just seems unfair.
This decision is not simple, I surely cannot decide,
For they all have strengths and weaknesses, the last one, walleyed.
Magic abound, Twilight enters the scene,
Celestia's student, the most capable she has ever seen.
To Ponyville she went, to
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

Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit
Quick Updates Concerning Things and HorsesHello all! Long time, no journal! I'm afraid this is the busiest time I've ever dealt with in Horse Fandom and I've been pretty out-of-pocket. Sorry about that!Quick Updates Concerning Things and Horses2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have a few updates on things for those interested in being updated!
With the holidays coming up I'm TRYING to slow down a bit and enjoy being a normal person who doesn't have 2 full-time plus jobs (one is technically a hobby, but...well, let's be honest here.) I probably won't be able to take on any new projects or charity-type things for the next month or so. At least, I'm going to TRY not to. I'm working on some very cool officially ponied pony stuff along with half a dozen charity pieces, so I'm trying hard to draw a line in the sand. Er, snow.
I apologize in advance if you're all "OMG! We need horse picturess to benefit upper torso transplants for poor children!" and I'm all "ARGH! I want to, I REALLY do!

Hobby Lobby, good luck to you! (UPDATE)EDIT: Just for clarification, Hobby Lobby is only against SOME forms of contraception, not all of it. I guess they don't want to provide the kind that assists in abortion but are ok with birth control and stuff. Just thought I'd clear that up.Hobby Lobby, good luck to you! (UPDATE)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I just learned that tomorrow the arts and crafts store, “Hobby Lobby” is going up against the Supreme Court in a legal battle for their rights which could end in them going out of business. The new Obamacare law is forcing them to provide contraception and abortion coverage to their employees and Hobby Lobby, being a Christian-based company, doesn’t believe in this and is fighting for their right to not be forced to do it.
Now before any of you go spouting all sorts of social justice crap about how abortion is good and stuff, no one, and I repeat NO ONE should be forced to support something financially that they don’t agree with and yet when Obamacare was passed most businesses have alre
That time of year again!I can't believe it's been a whole year since I've updated my journal! Sorry for being so out of touch.

We're in the early phases of development at Sony Pictures Animation, and I'm in a daily state of shock and gratitude for the opportunity.That time of year again!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
