It's been an exciting two weeks as we’ve slowly revealed what this contest is about, who’s involved, and what the reward is—THANK YOU for the support and excitement, we appreciate it more than you could imagine…but the day is finally here…what everyone’s been waiting for…
LET THE CONTEST BEGIN!
This journal features everything you’ll need to get started—full script page, final designs, and contest legal info. And a special note on the final delivery of your piece—there is no ‘right’ method of delivery, meaning it doesn’t have to look like a finished comic book page or anything that structured…Motion Books don’t have to adhere to a print layout so individual panels can be provided if you’d prefer. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask in the comment thread and we’ll get back to you!

I got a bit angry again...I just don’t understand. I really don’t.I got a bit angry again...3 months ago in Personal More Like This
There seems to be a growing tribalism in what, for now, we’re often labeling ‘Geekdom’ - or some other reclaimed formerly derogatory term.
A few examples:
There’s a healthy debate about sexism in comic, and the edges of what is an ingrained misogynistic streak that goes back decades.
There’s also a number of very buxom and proud of it cosplayers creating incredible, intentionally sexy costumes for comic conventions.
(Re. the points above: The debate gets hazy in the area that sexy and sexist butt-up against each other – no pun intended. What is cheesecake? What is pin-up? What is erotica? What is porn? What is artistic nude? You can’t simply say I know it when I see it. To some the statue of David is offensive! Either way, the debate rages while pin-up art vies with big-name superhero imagery as the easiest to sell. I can’t budge any pages that don’t feature either, or, or both of

Watcher Contest - L. Faust Signed Prize!EDIT No. 1: Only a week and some odd days to go and I only need 5 more watchers to meet the 100 entries mark. I must admit, I am a bit shocked that this didn't spread more, but hey, what can you do? I suppose people don't care about Lauren Faust autographed work, or they don't like the subject material its on.Watcher Contest - L. Faust Signed Prize!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT No. 2: I hit the +100 entrants milestone! That means the first bonus prize is active, and an additional prize of a wooden plaque (or digital drawing, winners choice), will be given out! Hooray! One more week for entries!
Regardless of which, a few more watchers and I'll open up the next prize slot.
Also, I want to make a change to the third place prize. If you do not want a premium dA memebership, you can instead choose a full-color and shaded artwork for a show or OC pony(s) . I understand not everyone wants a premium dA membership.
Now that I am back from Bronycon and can devote some time to art again, it's time to announce my

I Got Angry - recap!So, having gotten all riled up about publishing, I wanted to do a recap, and see what ground we covered:I Got Angry - recap!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
My first angry post was all about 'why' - why do it? What was the motivation? Why was I so bloody angry? And what was I doing about it?
Part 2 was about identity - who are you? What should you know about yourself and the industry if you really want to get serious about it?
http://techgnotic.deviantart.com/ wrote as part of his amazing response: 'But I think there comes a time when the whole system becomes so exhausted from mindless repetition that a certain cynicism becomes the only form of true enlightenment and what we loved about our artistic obsessions gets forgotten.'
http://deevelliott.deviantart.com/ also had some strong thoughts, including 'you have to bite your lip when f**ked up the arse and treated like you don't matter, better still sm

My Top 10 Worst ClichesSince I'm reviewing episodes again, and the latest episode seemed to have a mixed reaction, I thought I'd tell you my top 10 worst cliches from cartoons, movies, whatever. This isn't going to be in any particular order (as you already know my biggest pet peeves), but these are just what kill a story for me. It can be done well, but it's usually not done well, nor are they often even necessary. A lot of the problem is not only how bad I find them, but how prevalent they are. Most of the cliches, I've seen everywhere. They're predictable, they're annoying, and if they're in an upcoming episode, you could probably expect me to fail it.My Top 10 Worst Cliches1 year ago in Personal More Like This
10: Mopey Dopey Love Talk
I do not care about romance stories in the slightest, but I can find interest in them if they're done naturally and believably. I understand that people get "the butterflies" when they've got a crush on someone, but whenever this trope comes out the story stops dead in its tracks. The dialogue is obviously unimportant and it

20 Episodes I Want to See in Friendship is MagicWhile working on Admirable Animation, I usually think of what these episodes would be like Friendship is Magic, so I decided to make a list (in no particular order). These are 20 episodes that have happened in various other cartoons that I'd like to see happen in Friendship is Magic because I think that that plot would resonate well with the setting and characters of Friendship is Magic. Yeah, a lot of them are Admirable Animations/AA Candidates, but a lot of them aren't. I didn't really create any rules for this, except the former.20 Episodes I Want to See in Friendship is Magic1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Last of the Starmakers (Courage the Cowardly Dog): No surprise that I'd want to see my favorite animation of all time done in Friendship is Magic. This would best be a Fluttershy episode. There's this mystical creature that's needed for some reason by Celestia. Fluttershy is naturally the one who is communicate with it. She learns that it's about to be a mother and cannot be disturbed. Unfortunately Celestia really wants/needs whatever that

Good morning, everyone!
We’re gaining some serious momentum as our contest officially launches NEXT WEEK! Where does the time go? Haha!
We’re excited to have a short interview with the fabulous talent behind the Fran Kenstein designs! This guy is seriously a genius so enjoy:
First up—tell us a little about yourself!
Hello! My name is Gilang Andrian (alchemaniac), and I am a freelance artist based in Singapore for about a year now. I really love drawing, and I never stop trying to explore other techniques and styles!
You’re a completely digital artist, correct? What are your “tools of choice” digitally?
Yes! I can’t really draw well on paper, maybe because of the super-powerful Ctrl+Z feature. I have tried several programs like Corel Painter, Paint Tool SAI, Clip Studio Paint, but the program that I like the most is
