XioBomb's Profile Picture


Okitay so I’m just gonna say this real quick.

You guys know about that really awesome movie that just came out(ish) called “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”? Well, the fact that it has spawned this whole new movement of “spidersona’s” makes me so happy, you don’t even know. I’ve been a Spider-Man fan, a “Spider-Fan” if you will, ever since I watched the Sam Raining trilogy when I was little. In fact, Spider-Man is the reason I got into art in the first place. After a while I eventually made my first spidersona named “Arachni-Kid” (it had to be like 2008 or 2009 when I made it). I may do a progression pic or something of how his suit evolved as time went by but it looked very different between then and now. To clarify, I fully intend on revising the look yet again just because how can I not? I dunno, no promises on when it’ll come but it is coming and oh boi, will it be a doozy (the suit progression pic, not the revision) Either way, I’m super excited to get this done! YaAaAaY Spidey!

Windy Wings (sketch)
okitay so I went through a bunch of old art (most of which I did not post online anywhere) and found a few that I wanted to redraw and/or fix up. So here's one that I'm redrawing and I'm feeling pretty good about it so far. I decided to do it in my new style just to see how it goes and I am not disappointed. I'm especially digging how the wings turned out and that's a big plus because I typically struggle with making wings look good when I draw them. But anyways, I may or may not make a truly quality pic out of this rather than just coloring it and moving on but we'll see. No promises.

(P.s. here is the og)

Thanks for looking!
Style Experiment
I think I forgot to upload this but I'm working on yet another new style. Imagine that. I mean, I doubt I'll ever be happy with my pony art style but I mean, I'm actually really digging the way this style is looking! (Thus far, my style has been heavily influenced by the following artists in no particular order: :iconlopoddity:, :iconearthsong9405:, :iconsutexii:, :iconmicky-ann:, :iconjojacula:, :iconimalou:, :icon8bitamy:, etc.) Also, as you can see I'm considering changing my pone's hairstyle to better fit my style and my current hairstyle as well. It's nothing fancy, it's still an undercut except blonde on top and brown everywhere else. I'm not completely happy with how it looks in the middle so I tried it with the other style and it's also kinda meh for me but oh well. I'll figure it out eventually.

Thanks for looking!
Okitay. I'm going to jump on the bandwagon of shipping so here goes nothing...

For starters, there aren't many ships that I like. I'm not particularly​ big on shipping thus I don't​ really have that many in mind. However, there are a few that I do like and may use in the OLP reboot. So without further ado:

1) Fluttershy×RainbowDash-

Hardcore shipping this rn. I just think they'd be great together. I mean, the bond is practically already there. If I'm not mistaken, they go further back (canonically) as friends than anyone else in the mane six or main characters. Plus I have been influenced by Canon and fan depictions of their interactions that it just makes me happy seeing them together.


They met as fillies through their parents (mainly their mom's who were currently friends) and became friends almost instantly. Later on, they go to flight school together. Fluttershy gets bullied often and Dash is almost always there to have her back. (This secretly makes Dash Fluttershy's hero) As result of Dash being there for Fluttershy, Dash gains a few bullies herself. Fluttershy tries to help Dash when she can but she's just too shy and afraid of the bullies to do much.
·One of the most popular insults the bullies throw at the two are "Filly foolers" and "dykes". This makes the two secretly question whether or not they actually feel that way about each other but are too embarrassed to even think about saying something like that out loud. The tension between the two builds up as result and they try to talk it out. Afraid of losing their friendship, they don't want to do anything that would go beyond friendship. But the more they interact and stay around each other, the more they want it to happen. Eventually they do get together and a beautiful relationship is born.

2) Starlight×Maud
Okay, so I was watching season 7 to catch up a couple of nights ago. Come episode 4 (I think is what it was), I was immediately shipping Starlight and Maud by the end of the episode. If you haven't seen the episode, go watch it to see what I mean.


(Insert their interactions from episode 4 here) The next day, the two go kite flying. For a while, it becomes part of their daily schedules to come out and do this. On some odd days, Starlight will follow Maud down to Ponyville "Adjacent" as they call it. Even out in the caves at the entrance, they'll find something to do even if all of those rocks and gems are "common." As they spend more time together and grow in their friendship, their bond begins to go a little beyond friendship. One day, Starlight decides to bring lunch with her on one of their kite flying days. She thought it would be nice for them to eat out for a change. Maud ended up really liking the meal and being a little surprised. She was delighted. After lunch they do a little kite flying, then head home to Ponyville Adjacent. When they get there, the natural beauty of the place fills Starlight with just a little more happiness. When she looks at Maud to say something, she only gets a single urge. She kisses her and thanks her for a great time. Immediately after she dashes off flustered. Enter relationship.

3) AJ×Rarity-
I wasn't entirely sure about this but I have been influenced by the great Lopoddity and her portrayal of this ship.


They first met in filly school when they were paired together in a science project. Neither one actually knew what to do. Although,  they both got a good laugh out of one another's attempts at trying to understand the project. Friendship begins. Years later in ponyville, Rarity (desperately in need of inspiration) looks around her. With whatever luck AJ has, Rarity's eyes come to rest on her and she immediately feels the need to make a line of "Country" dresses. AJ is then pursued by Rarity to model for her in a couple of the dresses. AJ reluctantly agrees. Rarity low-key likes what she sees😋 Rarity ever so subtly flirts with a flustered AJ in one of her dresses. Rarity is very entertained by AJ's unentertained reactions. They pull an all nighter trying to finish up the last few dresses and find themselves having a few drinks when they're done. Push comes to shove and (after a few glasses of wine) an intoxicated Rarity makes a move on AJ (which is oddly returned) The two find feelings for each other and eventually get together.


Now, I'm not very good at this sort of thing so excuse the major crap that is what I have written. They were just a few ideas I had that will probably change if I do decide to use these in the OLP reboot.

Honestly tho, my favorite ship is flutterdash. At least, I think that's the ship name. I'm too afraid to search it up knowing what the internet has in store for such a search😂 I may or may not draw something for this just cuz but we'll see!
