Part 2 of my reactions and observations of the MLP:FIM premiere, Princess Twilight Sparkle!
I absolutely ADORED the Season 4 premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic! Here are my observations and reactions on part 1 and part 2 of “Princess Twilight Sparkle”.

No, thank you, Karpet! Thank you for so many smiles, and here’s to many, many more!
Bullet Bros kickstarter, by FuturePoly.
This game looks incredible. I want to see this happen. It’s being produced by the incredibly talented artist Jason Stokes, who was the lead environment artist at ArenaNet working on Guild Wars for many years.
Please please please spread it around, and back it if you can afford it.

See, this is why I could never have been a good sculptor. I wouldn’t have made it past pic 3 without giving up, thinking "oh man, this looks like a big goopy mess, I can’t do this, why did I even try…"
HOWEVER! We must all remember an important quote, illustrated beautifully by this gifset, which is this:
"All art is ugly before it’s beautiful."
Just because you’re not satisfied when you’re 30%, 50%, or even 90% through with a project is no reason to give up. Keep going. It will be messy and imperfect before the end. But, in the end, it’s always worth it.
(and even if you do fail, that’s OK too, because you can always start again and you can be SURE you’ll do better next time, after gaining the wisdom that failure grants us)
I hear a lot of musicians say they give up after beginning to write a song because they don’t like it, or they give up a mix because it just doesn’t sound right, and they’ve only spent like … a few days on it. Don’t give up. Put it away and come back later with fresh ears, if you have to. But seriously, don’t knock yourself just because you think it should be perfect right from the start.
EVERYTHING, no matter how proficient you are at your craft, starts out looking/sounding bad. If you believe otherwise, you’ll get into a dangerous place where you’re constantly quitting and never motivated to improve.
SO, LIKE, DON’T GIVE UP, EVER
I think one should never let others influence what you love. Some very good friends have reminded me of just that.
I’d get too caught up in the drama, and it’s honestly just silly! A couple folks and I have agreed we’re just going to watch the new episodes and not give two darns about what anyone thinks.
You are a joy in this fandom. You are a bright light where I think a lot of people need it most. As very loudly as the very small minority is, you must remember you make many more people smile.
One thing I’m trying to do is this: if I can’t find any positivity around me, by golly I’ll create some! You do a fantastic job at doing just that. No matter what happens, your artwork is that little pool of light. I don’t mean that it always has to be happy, either; I’m just saying that whatever you choose to draw on a given day makes me happy.
I think the quality of any given fandom depends on who you surround yourself with. Pick good friends and even the “worst” days will still be enjoyable. :)
I might be selfish here, but I don’t want you to go anywhere. I admit I was moved enough to reply because that very thought made me sad. I’m trying to make you feel bad or guilty. I just really love what you’re doing. :)
Old sketches throwback! Some of these date as far back as 2009.
This is one of many reasons why I love following you. All of this is eye candy. ALL OF IT. My smile says it all.
I’m happy to draw again, because I love looking at this stuff. I don’t think, “Man, I could never draw like that.” I find myself thinking, “If I push myself, I can draw something great like this, too!”
So, thank you for being an inspiration. :)
From the top: Equestria Daily Newbie Artist Training Ground III: Day 1: Draw a pony staring into space. And Twilight was never heard from again.
EQD NATG III: Day 2: Draw a pony walking, or a pony on a journey. Who knew Lyra was into Journey? :D
Derp-o-naut! :D (Old sketch I meant to do for last year’s NATG, but I caught Con SARS/Con Plague. Totally killed my urge to draw.)
Bored Scoots! Another drawing I meant to do for NATG last year. Chess just isn’t her game.
She’s also on tumblr, too! (Psst…you guys should really be following her).
Oh look, it’s my new favorite crossover thing~ <3
Joey, look at this ouo
Ermahgerd, Starborne is going to love this!
this is really bad,i can’t login DA now… i think the hacker change my email and password.
Now moving on to the tail and body. This has been an absolutely fun project thus far. I found a happy solution to the mane. Not a polyfill poop or a hair flag- but pretty much the two combined. Oh Oh and the best part is the hair is removable for easy storage/transportation.
You will see this lovely at Bronycon in Baltimore!
Horn provided by , the rest is my handiwork.
Ooooooohh, she’s pretty!
Fuck jumping ship, I don’t care just how bad the fandom is.
MLP:FiM is a great show. I ain’t gonna be a fair-weather fan if I can help it.
but the fandom isn’t bad. It has it’s highs and its lows, just like any other fandom.
Why is this so fucking hard for people to understand.
This fandom is not special. These fans are not special. They are just fans.
And we’re all trying to have fun in the fandom.
What is so difficult to understand about that.
That, and one can still be a fan long after said show finishes. I’m still a fan of Invader Zim, Harry Potter and ST:TNG. There will always be fans of MLP:FIM, and even new fans as they discover the show for the very first time, years down the road.
One does not need to stop being a fan after a show stops airing.
…and so concludes the thrilling tale of How Pinkie Became a Small-Business Investor! Good thing she was there to help fix the inconsistent and Escheresque interior of Sugarcube Corner, it really needed it.
Also special thanks to my bro Texel for looking this over and making sure I wasn’t somehow totally screwing up how business investment works (because knowing me I would’ve managed it somehow). This comic is officially legally plausible, hooray!
Never, ever stop being the awesome person you are, Ego! :D
