OK, everyone. It may not matter here, but what do you think?

I’m going to try and illustrate pics for the next fic myself using regular MLP style animation style for the characters, and this anime style for awkward moments or when characters show heavy emotion like anger or shock. I intend on drawing the outlines of characters and drawing them regularly with color, but not filling or coloring within the lines, like so…

What do you guys think? Good idea… bad? Any suggestions?

@Markhaox14

It may not carry the entire fic, but it sounds nice so it should enhance what is there.

I’d say go for it.

@Page get whoring

It’s a shame that we can’t just have each thread scroll down forever like the image galleries do. That would eliminate page gets forever, since there would only ever be one page per thread. It would make long threads like this one a bit of a hassle to keep up with though.

Think of the browsers that would crash back with Pony General I.

A entire page filled with 3-5 large images on each post was nothing less than common, let’s just keep it at that. You can imagine how much you had to load each time.

Do whatever you want dude, just keep it off the thread.

So, has anyone else noticed that Deadparrot has lost his power to post appropriate pics? Used to be the Deadparrot could use his witchcraft to find a freakishly appropriate image for any occassion and lately he just…hasn’t. Kind of disappointing honestly.

Maybe a witchhunter has found the box containing his disembodied heart and destroyed it, thus severely diminishing his powers.

Well, guys, I think I have a theme song for Octavia.

Shame there ain’t a studio version.

Oh, and clearly my box has only ever contained one thing:

Blame Pinkie.

I have increased my intake of chickens in the past few months.

One of my victims must have been his secret horcrux or some other such vile magical power source.

The end is now nigh.

EDIT:

Actual question: Are the mini-comics worth reading? MLP comics are the only merchandise I purchase and support the series through, so I tend to be pretty serious about getting them legally.

Obviously he already used every other Scootaloo picture on the interwebs. There are only so many Scootaloo images you can use on the interwebs that isn’t blatant porn. Now if this were 4chan he’d probably have enough images to last a lifetime.

So….a little off topic here, was out with my friend and we were walking our dogs. My dog stretches out and suddenly the first thing I hear in my head is the Super Mario Bros. 2 Music start up and electronic voices saying “I want to cum inside Rainbow Dash/Dog” WHAT HAS PONY THREAD DONE TO ME?!

It has brought you into a heightened state of being. Don’t try to fight it; feel your power grow further with each post.

I don’t know why, but this picture just screams douche.

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to murder someone this badly before. This hatred I feel, it’s like I suddenly understand what it feels like to be Klu Klux Klansman or Hitler.

Well, at least the tattoo looks really good. Unlike this:

I was able to find some information on this tattoo. Apparently, the person’s roommate did it for her. Which explains the drawn on look.

Hey… Interesting news…

A girl from Highschool who moved away around the same time I graduated contacted me… For like the first time in ages…

It was through her that I first found out FiM even existed…

…Of course… I didn’t believe her at the time that Guys watched it…

…And now… A couple of Years later… I watch it…

Yeah… This is going to be Awkward isn’t it? At least in terms of the chance she will say “I told you so”.

I wouldn’t mind a Cutie Mark Tattoo (Though, I’d wait for the show to finish so I can see if I’d really WANT a tattoo from this show after it’s aired for 8 years) but yeah that guy just screams total tool. See, when I’m wearing my new sunglasses I look like a major tool…….now I don’t want a cutie mark tattoo because Fifths will want to murder me because I’d probably out-tool this guy.

Solution for now: temporarily cutie mark tatoos (if they are available, that is)

You know, it’d be pretty cool to get a cutie mark tattoo. Only problem is I can not frikin settle on what my own mark would be

U ain’t true bronei until you get colorful equine ass tattoo.

Suddenly we have hundreds of bronies with guitars and other music stuff printed on their booty.

And then /mlp/ joins the trend…


@Fifths

Clearly you haven’t seen the master race yet, you plesbian tattoo-tier peasant.

Gaze upon it.

@Tattoos
I’ll say right up front that I typically consider tattoos to be a bad or silly idea.
I just don’t understand why someone would want to have some drawing permanently etched into their skin like that.
But if you are going to do it, at least make it something kind of cool:

Plus, it only really screams ‘MLP’ to someone who knows the show.
To the layman, t’s just a cool dragon-thingy.

@Mike
Just go buy the trading cards.
Each pack comes with temporary tattoos.

All of the pony on your skin, none of the lifetime of regret and lasers!

Just a personal encounter I had at EQLA:
Basically, this guy had just gone totally overboard with the temporary tattoos.
Since they are literally in every pack of cards, they are extremely common so essentially worthless in terms of trading.
I gave him a huge stack myself and he ended up covering himself in them, pretty much head to toe.

You can see them on his wrist in that picture there along with the world’s most temporary (and edible!) souvenir.
I only wish I had gotten a picture of the rest of him…

If you want to get desperate, even the stores in our country offer the girly shit that gets categorized as girly shit. A two minute search on the Bart Smit or Intertoys websites already got me those suprise bags or the motherfucking “Trouwkasteel”.

So yeah, simple figurines is pretty easy to get. For plushes you need to dig through Etsy or other sites and check who ships Europe.

Yeah, I saw the blindbags at the Intertoys, Twilight with a balloon in a couple of Kruidvat’s, and pyjama’s in the Action. And our local Coop one time had some magazine of MLP, didn’t know what it was though. But it’s true, we only get the really girly stuff.
Meh, I’d like maybe one blindbag of Dash or so, to hang on our PC monitor, not more figures than that. Got a shirt printed in the town I live, as I didn’t know how much it costs to send stuff from USA to here. Need to check that, as I want a shirt of Vinyl and / or Octavia sometime.
