The Writers [GIFT] by FacelessJr The Writers [GIFT] by FacelessJr
I never thought a piece of mine would actually be viewed by the show staff themselves. That's pretty cool; definitely makes this neat little gift poster something that I can nod my head at in approval.

A friend of mine over in the MLPG Chat came to me asking if I could render up a scene with the writers of MLP:FiM doing 'writy stuff' together. After being shown a good assortment of the established OCs (Amy, Cindy, Meghan, and Corey all had one we could find easy), I scratched my chin for a bit and made up one for Larson. I thought he'd get a giggle out of what I came up with. I really liked the design Klondike came up with for Corey Powell, so I decided to roll with it. She makes for a pretty cute dragon writer person.

After it was all rendered, my chat buddy made a couple of prints and let the staff keep them. Hope the crew likes 'em!

More pones to come soon, I'm sure of it. Keep it classy, ponefriends.

EDIT: Almost forgot to put up all the names. Let's do this proper:

From left to right: Cindy Morrow (Bacon Sizzle), Amy Keating Rogers, Meghan McCarthy (Big Boss), M.A. Larson, and Corey Powell.

I take it the reason :iconsibsy: wasn't included in this is because she's not a writer?

Would someone kindly remove Meghan from the lead writer's chair, before I gun her out of it.

What isn't? All her episodes are insults to mlp, especially when doing specials. Made a great villain sombra but threw him away. Lies about almost everything like if she's a freking trickster. Wrote 2 terrible movies (concept of mlp into humans is good, but made their clothes, shoes and skin color only appropriate for dolls, almost like hasbros willing slave) and more recently: said discord x celestia won't happen even though we saw it at the end, so she got everyone's hopes up...ugh she has to be on the top 5 worst writers of Hollywood if equestria girls 2 is in theaters

Eh, I wouldn't say every episode she's ever written has been a callous affront to the franchise. I really liked 'Party of One,' and 'Green Isn't Your Color' and 'Lesson Zero' are some of my favorite episodes in the series, the latter being the first episode I ever saw... so that just makes the fact that everything she's written from 'A Canterlot Wedding' onwards makes the searing burn of her betrayal all the more loathsome.

Ever seen Reviewing is Magic 4? Because it's about half an hour of pointing out how stupid and poorly written 'A Canterlot Wedding' is, and that's without bringing up the rant that needs to be addressed about how much changelings suck. And that review is partially what inspired me to make my own two-part review on 'The Crystal Empire,' an atrocity I abhor with more scurrilous hatred than Tommy Oliver despises Godzilla 2014. The season four premiere wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it was still an idiotic heap of gadabout plot points with more superficial, superfluous padding than a thirteen year old girl's bra, the absolute worst method I've ever seen to "explain" the origins of the Elements of Harmony (I call it "The Tree of Jossed Head-Canons"), and this reoccurring, deplorable, unforgivably execrable theme that Twilight seems to have to keep relearning that friendship is always what solves every problem despite the fact that it was the first fucking lesson she ever learned. As for 'Twilight's Kingdom,' not even that fight scene could absolve or detract from the fact that it much had all the same shit wrong, with terrible pacing, Celestia once again initiating plans as unfathomably stupid as the alien's invasion in Signs, Twilight again not realizing the value of friendship despite the fact that the fucking show is called FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC.

As for Equestria Girls... I just watched it again yesterday with my older brother since I have to rewrite the script for the review I was planning on filming, and despite the fact that back in April I wrote a 100 page script for a review about how cliched, contrived, imbecilic, maladroit, and abominable that film is, I had somehow forgotten just how how cliched, contrived, imbecilic, maladroit, and abominable that film is. Brian said it was the worst animated film he's seen since 2006's Chicken Little. And now they're making a second one...

Within the top five worst writers in Hollywood? Technically, she can't even be on that list since she's Canadian. If you've ever seen the shit that's shown up on Mystery Science Theater 3000 of Rifftrax, you'll know there are far worse writers out there than Meghan McCarthy... but that doesn't make her writing any less shitty.

I like tirek, but as far as villains go he's nothing new. With how close minded the brony community was with king sombra, the writers thought the bronies only wanted the SAME king of villain over and over again, and they got what they wanted with sunset shimmer( a wanna villain who's demon form was cool but who's motivations were what we've seen literally 100 times. Plunder plants has a cool concept, but made it feel more like a plot devise. And tirek who was good since sombra but what was wrong with the rainbow of darkness? I know in different generations a character is supposed to be different, but it felt too watered down, with a rushed backstory and rushed character scorpan, and again, modivation was childish. And the dazzlings are even WORSE than sunset from what I've seen. Rumor has it the alicorn amulet was originally linked to king sombra, but pulled that out and instead became another cheap plot devise. Fans have more influence on movies and shows than you think.

What I know, is that those five people, are the same people that gave us so many emotions in those five years. I trust them, even now. I know that they can do a great work with this series. Some bronies left the fandom with Twilight's coronation, but while they will work for this show, I will believe in them... I won't leave this amazing show, I won't leave this fandom.

seen from Equestria Daily. that's a nice piece of writers there, though, honestly, i don't like Larson and Keating Rogers ponysonas due to their ugly color panels. and if Larson's OC is an Alicorn then, why is he not using magic instead of using wings as hands?

I find it supremely awesome that Corey Powell, one of the most intelligent writers on the team and the writer of the best Spike episode, is a dragon. That's one of the reasons ~QueenCold is one of my favorite people on DeviantArt.

How come Corey Powell's a dragon?
Did she want to be a dragon or was it just a random choice?

It's because she wrote the most entertaining episodes that focused on Spike. So, after that, one guy made her dragon oc, and I think she just rolled with it after that.

These five are unstoppable. Season 4's going to be amazing.

And thanks for drawing this so I could have a cover image for the panel writeup, as well as being cool with getting credited as the image's source. I saw what it looked like up close with Meghan and oh my goodness, haha! I won't lie when I say I'm more than interested in maybe getting this as a print if you ever make them available.

Who's the dragon one? The only one I recognize from this group is Meghan McCarthy. I'm also guessing the only guy there is M. A. Larson.

Oh yeah, it'd probably be a good idea to actually throw the names up here.

From left to right: Cindy Morrow (Bacon Sizzle), Amy Keating Rogers, Meghan McCarthy (Big Boss), M.A. Larson, and Corey Powell.

I'll add that to the description, too. Thanks for the head up.
