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

I seriously had hoped I wasn’t going to have to post this story here… But this situation is kinda serious and you will see why.
Where do I even begin with this mess? Put simply. Me and my friend are being harrassed. And no this is not just some troll sending a few messages.. This is someone who goes completely out of their way to ruin lives. I pissed off some this "someone". A guy who ide like to add is already very notorious (and growing) for getting into serious internet drama with lots of individuals in the furry / online artist community. So basically this guy flips his shit

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
I got a bit angry again...I just don’t understand. I really don’t.I got a bit angry again...5 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

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?

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!2 years 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.

For those of you who have participated in Equestria Daily's training grounds or in other groups that already do this sort of thing, the process will be similar enough for the most part. For those who have never done anything like this before, here are the key details:
> A topic/pose/theme will be given every Saturday (except the first week) in a group journal. An example would be "a pony studying". Members are free to draw out this idea in any way they wish to (while still following the group's general submission rules, so no Pony Maker/Creator images and the like), so be as creative as you want to be! The only restriction is that we will take family friendly images only (no mature pics). We will also announce a due date to let me

Fun facts about my OCsYou love them, now here's some awesome little fun facts about them!Fun facts about my OCs1 month ago in Personal More Like This
First up? Midnight Lily!
My precious Midnight xD ah.. As you all know, I've had this OC for years now, but the "Lily" part is completely new. I couldn't think of anything that would really go with her name.. But then I thought of the name "Lily" and just kind of stuck with it.
Midnight does have parents. They died while she was very young. Unbeknownst to some of you, I actually gave her parents names way back when I'd first made her (5 or 6 years ago). Their names were Klaus (father) and Klara (lol I know xD). Originally, I wanted her mother's name to be Lorelei. Why? Because of Tales of the Abyss. I loved that name. But.. Klara just fit better.
Midnight is originally from Germany, hence, where her parents' names came from.
Midnight is the OC that takes on all my anger and rage.
Midnight was the name of my dog who I loved very much... My mom unfortunately gave him away

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

As the title says I have reached 1800! First, quick thanks for all of your support. It has been a while since I have done something as thanks so I decided that for 1800 I will do a little competition. Now, this is my first time trying to do a competition so I do not know how it will work out. I am hoping that I will get a lot of participants, but in the end I may not and that's fine too! I am only handing out awards to first place(s), that of course being a free commission from yours truly. There will be a couple chances to win which I will explain below, but first the topic! So, based upon feed back from my polls I am thinking that the drawing/painting/whatever medium you choose should depict this:
