They changed Battle of the Bands in the movie... I don't like it quite as much now because the vocals get drowned out somewhat... =/

Oh, did they?  Well that’s certainly a shame…  At least it’s still great on the OST, from what I can tell on youtube anyways.

Which I really hope gets released on amazon soon so I don’t have to rely on youtube for it, since I don’t use itunes.

Have you seen Rainbow Rocks yet? What did you think of it? Not enough Sonata Dusk if you ask me; good thing I remembered to cosplay as her in honor of Sonata Dusk's Awesomeness Awareness Day! ;p

Ah, I have not seen it…  Theaters and I don’t really get along… and to be honest, I still don’t like the design they chose for the humans…

I’m sorry there wasn’t enough of Sonata Dusk in it though, that’s really too bad.  I didn’t know there was an “Awesomeness Awareness” Day for her though, it’s too bad I missed it.

doubleclickthepony said: Nuuu! A semi-official Boo or Wavey calendar would be cute! Do the Jan. 2015 picture in Nov. if you still plan to do the Christmas thing, then do Feb. in Jan. and so on with the goal being to complete the picture before the 1st of the month. (^.^)

Well nothing I do is ever official, semi or otherwise…

I was thinking it would be better to do it with a higher amount of ponies though, to make it a little easier, but with a single subject (like “elements”, “shipping”, or something like that) to unify the 12 pictures.  But yeah, that’s pretty much what I was thinking as far as working on the next month’s in the current month…  If the theme involved FoE characters (my first thought was to try combining FoE characters with a “fitting” elemental) I would certainly want to include Boo.

I really don’t know if I’ll be doing a Christmas challenge again this year though…

I saw a post on my dashboard today about a fundraiser calendar and it really made me start thinking…  Not about fundraising… but about just how few drawings I’ve really been able to do… considerably less as well when I’m putting so much effort into drawing stupid things for myself that I’ll never be posting…

So I started thinking about some kind of “long term” version of the December challenges I’d been doing, where I make sure I draw something nice to post at least once a month… which, taking inspiration from a calendar aside, is really quite sad when you consider trying to do one drawing in a month is an attempt not to overstep my capabilities…

Maybe I’ll just go back to sleep in my pod instead…

In celebration of 10k, I’ve put together a video to showcase some of the awesome art that’s been assembled for this book, and talk a little bit about the setting. This also marks the home stretch for the kickstarter; we’re down to a dozen days. Thank you all for being so supportive and interested!  Please do keep talking and reblogging, every dollar counts (especially when Uncle Sam takes away a big ol chunk of it when its done x.x )

Those of you who’ve watched me on other blogs may be aware of a family emergency that’s been going on lately. My wife and I were expecting our baby in late December, and have been preparing, but just this last week she was hospitalized for preeclampsia, and the baby will be arriving any time now. Its a nearly 3 month pre-mature birth and we’re all a little scared, but that is the nature of life. Needless to say, I’ve been running around like a headless chicken going back and forth between work and the hospital. Its been an emotional rollercoaster and its not going to end anytime soon. After our baby is delivered, shes still going to have months in an incubator.

This project has been a labor of love from the start, but its become more of a crusade in the past week or so. There’s nothing at all either of us can do about my wife’s condition, its just waiting now, so I’ve put my (rather overwhelming) urge to DO something into trying to make this the best launch I possibly can. Its been something I can come home to and pour my effort into after trips to the hospital, and I wanted to thank all you supporting it for giving it the chance to shine. With any luck it can catch the wind once it releases and become something we can all be proud to have been a part of.

Here’s to the home stretch!

Stormfront is a nice pony.  In case any of you feel like looking this over.

"Captured in the web of my song~  Soon you’ll all be singing along~"
I really have no idea why I enjoy the thought of Wavey cosplaying as Sonata Dusk so much…

While I was listening to “Battle of the Bands” on repeat again yesterday, I kept seeing the other tracks from Rainbow Rocks in the recommendations after…  I thought I remembered seeing there was another song from the villains, so I decided to give “Under Our Spell" a try… and I think I like it even more than the first…

I probably should just be drawing Sonata though, instead of drawing my OC dressed up as her…

Decided to put the picture with Boo back up, but with a disclaimer attached… I don’t know how long it’ll stay up though.

Last night while getting ready for bed, my mom and I were talking about the hurricanes coming up the gulf of Mexico towards us, and how the changes in air pressure are probably going to make me miserable for the next week or so.  Somehow the conversation turned towards airplanes and travel, and I suddenly realized that if I have trouble just going over an elevated highway (and not that big of one at that) trying to visit a Mission outside town, there’s no possible way I’d be able to comfortably make an airplane flight, no matter how much weight I lose.

So… so much for taking a trip to Vegas to celebrate losing weight.  It also means I’ll probably never be able to meet anyone, since the only con I’ll ever be able to attend is the comicon in Phoenix…

And two more Terokk kills with no figurine.

It really is pitiful that these are the “most important” things that I worry about…

I think happiness is a lot like a fresh snack cake.

Warm.  Comforting.

A question I got a few days ago on Boo’s tumblr… but this was the only answer I could think of, and it’s quite a bit more of a downer than I really want to put on there.

So you guys get to suffer with me instead.

"It’s a lovely night tonight in Manehattan, don’t you think?"

I’ve been needing a new wallpaper for a while, something that had dark colors but was still cheerful…  There’s actually one completely different I’ve been wanting to do (which I have talked with several ponies about), but I was having so much trouble getting it to look right, so I’m not sure if I’ll ever actually be able to do it… and if not, my deepest apologies to those ponies…
But… I had this idea, and decided to try it…
I was surprisingly really happy with how Wavey and the moon turned out, but I don’t like the clouds at all, especially the ones she’s sitting on.  And I forgot how to do the background clouds halfway through doing them…
I also made a version with a much different looking moon [warning: Naruto spoilers no one cares about and potentially disturbing implications], and spent way too much time on it…
