So I see a comment from a brony regarding the Equestria Girls trailer…
And they say “well, good job Hasbro. The only people interested in this WILL be little girls.” There seems to be a lot of reactions like this, or people just plain upset or (for some reason beyond me) feeling slighted by this whole thing. Can I just one more time point out: YOU’RE NOT THE TARGET DEMOGRAPHIC!!!
Look, I love MLP:FIM. It’s a stellar cartoon and exceptionally well animated and written. But it’s not ours. It can be enjoyed by anyone, but at the end of the day, it belongs to the kids. This is their party, let them have it.
It may not end up bring my cup of tea, but I’m going to give it a chance. I owe the folks who made it that much, considering. And if I don’t like it, I’ll say “oh well,” move on, anticipate season 4, and hope the kids really enjoyed it.
Randomly paused an episode of MLP:FIM recently, and just happened to get Fluttershy bowing to her sensei.
So I drew some ponies!
You know what’s one of the best things about putting your regularly updating comic on an indefinite hiatus? Getting time to draw whatever in the blue heck you want. It just so happens I want to draw some ponies.
I’ve been doing a lot of pony sketches lately, trying to get a handle on their design, while also putting some of my own flair into it. This one was one of the few I was really happy with, so I took it to the next level. I think there’s still some kinks I need to work out, but on the whole I’m getting somewhere I think.
Recently I’ve taken a liking to these two. Just the way Octavia and DJ Pon3 can play off each other and such. It’s a lot of fun.
So, what are the odds I can make it to an Equestria Daily Drawfriend? That’d be pretty awesome. They did give a shout out to a MLP reference in a series of “Alone in a Crowd” comics I did, so I’m very grateful for that, that’s for sure.
words to live by
As silly as it sounds, THIS may have been my favorite moment of this weekend’s new episode.
I did a little sketch of Lyra from “My Little Pony: Friendship” is magic the other day, because, come on, who doesn’t simply love Lyra?
I really would like to ink and color this when I get a chance ^-^
