Season 4! So Wow! Much Animation! Wow!The Season 4 premier has arrived and the great gulf of pony-less misery is now behind us! I loved the opening two-parter! It feels good to see Twilight as adorkable as always and humble about her status as Princess Pretty Pony. The characters were all spot on, there were fan-favorites all around, and the resolution set up a season-long arc. And most of all, it was FUN. It was fun to watch, to talk about, and most of all it had a pimp cane shaped like Twilight's head. How can you go wrong?I'm curious how everyone else felt about the new episode! Let me know in the comments!
DeviantArt.comPeople have asked me "why DeviantArt?" Let's just take a minute to acknowledge a website that's fostered an art-driven community tens of millions strong. DeviantArt eclipses it's nearest neighbors by an order of magnitude. It has been and remains as probably the best online portal for sharing and discovering artwork; DeviantArt is thriving. DeviantArt is uniquely approachable, you don't have to be a professional; you don't have to be anything. We are the most inclusive art community that has ever existed, and while users may quibble with one another, DeviantArt itself remains admirably impartial. Despite its enormous popularity, DeviantArt is constantly being lambasted by professional artists as inconsequential, juvenile and fetishistic. Our notoriety inspires undue hesitation in artist that might be searching for a home on the web. Artists who have no problem painting gruesomely macabre imag
I used to wonder what phallocentrism could beMy mother is a self-described "70s feminist." When I was growing up, she kind of discouraged me and my siblings from being into stuff like My Little Pony because she felt it reinforced limiting gender stereotypes. Which, this having been the 1980s, was probably true.So the conversation in which I told her I was now, in my 30s, a huge My Little Pony fan was odd.We were having coffee, and I said "you'll never guess what I'm into now.""What?""My Little Pony.""Oh. (pause) So you're reliving your lost girlhood?""Yes, but there's more."The fact is, I think MLP in its current incarnation is, for the most part, an unexpectedly enlightened voice for feminism in children's entertainment. Female, not male, is the cultural default gender in Equestria, and femininity is allowed to encompass the full range of individual personalities, and the message that anyone really can be anything she feels inside is...a big part of why I'm such a fan and why I find the show inspiring. I hope lots of kids
Devious Journal EntryToday is Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead in English. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died And I thought I'd share this short animation video that I found, which I think is a great example of what this holiday is about.
Devious Journal EntryJust trying out inking lineart on a proto page, might be a bit messier than usualI normally use pen paths to ink but I think its too time consuming to do comic pages that way
