So, regarding my ongoing battle with the new submission page, it seems that if I go through the Sta.sh thingy, everything works fine!

An inconvenience, but I guess it's better than nothing, though I wish I didn't have to take that extra measure.

I am still unable to upload since they "updated" the submission page!

The last few things were uploaded using somone else's computer, but I don't want to have to keep doing that, I shouldn't have to. I've updated everything I thought might be the problem, my browser, flash, java...yet nothing!

For some reason the catagory section just doesn't load, I even tried waiting for a few minutes, and still it wont.

UPDATE: Well I've done everything, updated browser,flash,java, even deleted cookies and cache, still nothing! Why the hell did they have to go and make a change that no one wanted?? Hundreds of people voiced thier hate for it and just got ignored!

Hey youse guize!

Judging by my rapid decline in uploads it seems that I've disappeared or gave up...far from it! I'm actually taking a break from doing vector work for awhile, it got to the point where I put less and less effort into hand drawn sketches because I knew I could just touch it up later, tweeking bits here and there until it was "perfect", which felt very fake to me and no longer seemed like I actually drew them anymore.

This also made everything I done appear flat and static to me, with little to no fluidity, and I felt stuck in this, so for now I've gone back and revisited my old simple, cartoon ways, to help recapture what I had. It's not like I haven't drawn anything for ages, I have many sketches and doodles laying about, and with the creation of my pony ask tumblr (see previous journal for link) I'm feeling more free in my work, and learning new things for future projects.




tl;dr : Have I given up on the pone? pfft hell no! it's only just begun.

With season 3 over, I feel more confident in continuing my storybook "Between the Sun and Moon" as my fears of the latest season contradicting my ideas are put to rest. Although a few minor details will need a slight alteration, a dew new ones added, I'm finding myself getting excited about this project again.

I stil have another project to finish, and a few other things to do, so this won't be done anytime soon.

For those of you who haven't heard of this project before, here's a link to the promo I upload awhile ago.

Ok so the point to my asking about feelings towards fanfics is that I want to give it a go.

The thing is, I am wanting to do the backstory of Celestia and Luna, and I know there's probably already dozens if not more of this, I've already written a 3 page overview of it as a guideline to the actual thing. And before I even start getting into it I'd like to know if anyone would be interested in reading it? or is this something most fans would rather not?

I would also be including artwork, instead of it just being plain text, to make it more interesting and also to show how I envision certain parts visually.

So, what is the general feeling about fanfics that have conflicting stories with official canon? Do people dismiss them or accept them as an alternate perspective?

So...I'm thinking of maybe doing one of these, but seeing as I've never paid much attention to tumblr, I don't know much.  I've seen many images on sites like derpibooru and they seem like a fun idea, so is it worth further investigation or are there already too many of these to follow?

And if I've got this right, people ask the character random questions, and they recieve a reply (often humorous) in art form?

I started uploading MLP images in February, and it's now late July and I've only got what, less than 30 images?

I should also work on original stuff, I have a few projects, but it's a matter of getting them to the point where I'm satisfied with them.

Ok I have an idea for a pic of young Celestia and Luna, and was wondering, with young Celestia is her pink mane a result of the decision of the fan collective or am I just seeing the same artists work over and over?

I don't want to cause some kind of drama over what's the "correct" colour (ie: Vynl's eyes)

I see alot of oc ponies on here as well as other sites and was wondering, should I too make one? what do people usually do with their oc's? with season 2 over am I too late to start this?

I'm asking because I have a rough design already, so should I or shouldn't I?
