/r/: twilight swimming
I wanted to draw her learning to swim. Fun childhood story time: When I was like 3 or so, my mom brought me to the pool and I was like, fuck waterwings, I can swim just fine. So I bit holes in them and started sinking to the bottom of the pool but someone rushed in and saved me. (too bad huh?)

WHAT THE FUCK THIS IS AMAZINGI’m blown away, wow.
I read this aloud to my wife, and I couldn’t make it all the way through without getting choked up.
Gravity shift! [video]
THIS IS SO COOL
City Council is re-calibrating the gravity of the city today. Citizens are warned to anticipate sudden gravity shifts and stay near objects which can be grabbed onto in the event of a shift. And now, the weather.
Three months ago I finished those mlp rigs, and I tried to animate them. The result was bad…
I realized that my models were horrible. So I decided to redo everything from scratch.
This time I embraced the cartoony style of the show and everything is looking much better.
Here’s my first animation test with the new rig:
Oh wow. This is phenomenally well done!
Oh my Fuckin
Do you realize how annoying it is when you don’t switch paragraphs when a new character is speaking
Do you realize how confusing it is
I don’t care if they’re using one-word responses at each other, start a new damn paragraph.
ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER.
dear christ this.
no more walls of text please. please.
did another one! I…am probably not going to do another multi-expression one again for a while, that was pretty annoying to figure out. :I
she has way more mouth expressions but for some reason the full sample wouldn’t export so I went with the shorter one, no :3-Pinkie for yooou
Oh my gosh this is AWESOME. This made me smile so much!!
I know I posted this already, but I’d like to take a second to talk about it. This is a friend of mine’s daughter who is dressed as Princess Twilight Sparkle (she got a horn later). Her and several other people (kids and adults alike) were beyond thrilled and wanted to take a picture both of me and with me. Seeing the happiness I was giving others by wearing this costume was very thrilling for me.
It’s why I cosplay. Not because I’m getting attention, but because the sheer delight on people’s faces when they see their favorite character ‘come to life’, so to speak, is just incredible.
I’d actually met this particular little girl before at a brony meet up her folks (both bronies) had brought her along to and she had a hard time approaching me while I was in costume, even when her mom reassured her of who I was. She was just so awed by me, she couldn’t bring herself to high-five me at first. It was too cute.
People like this, spreading happiness like this.
This is why I cosplay
Reblogging because this is awesome. And terribly cute! This made me smile.
The bronycon merch has begun. These were originally going to be printed as magnets, but I’m thinking stickers might be more practical.
These are all awesome! I’d buy magnets of these. :D
dracocapra and girafficorn, ‘cause it’s fun! (I should probably do Jerry the hippocampus too but I still haven’t figured out what his back half looks like…)
once again for clarity, these are not pony-world OCs, but existing OCs drawn in pony style. this is my tag for them if you want to check them out! (it’s mostly pegallams sorry)
They are super cute! Gah, I’m trying hard not to fan-boy, Egophiliac, but I love this so darned much. :D
(This should’ve been up yesterday, but I got distracted, sorry! In penance, here are some of my idea thumbnails. I don’t know what half of them are supposed to be either.)
Retake the Label
You know what I like? I like browsing the #brony tag and seeing happy bronies and MLP fans enjoying the fandom. I like seeing them posting cool art, and models, and cosplays, and music, and all that good stuff.
That’s what we came here for. I want to talk about what we do as a healthy community. I’d like to see people celebrating the best of our fandom, and telling everyone about it in a tag that should be filled with positive encouragement for those who are looking for it.
This is a celebration of positivity. It’s a celebration of equality. It’s a celebration of making bonds, building bridges, and shaking hands. It’s a celebration of what we are, what we want to see ourselves as, and what we want our label to really represent.
A label means different things to different people. But at the end of the day, all we want is to be happy, and make other people happy.
Let’s make our label about what is really important – everybody.I like small horses and fans of small horses.
This. All of this! My positive experiences in one week far outnumber the negatives I might have had in a whole YEAR! I met some ridiculously awesome people because of this, and I continue to meet many more.
I love my fandom to itty bitty bits! Seriously, there is something going on that makes me smile every single day. Whether it’s music, artwork, animation, or the people themselves, I’m having an awesome time.
The words are just flowing from my fingers because my hands just can’t keep up with my brain.
I LOVE MY FANDOM!
