Time for a random update! To be honest, I think it’s helping me out some as I’m starting to get a lot more productive with the site again – in terms of updating the various sites pages. Anyhow, back to the randomness.
Earlier in the fall I got hooked onto watching My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Can’t remember how, I think it was my friends that introduced me to it but I loved it. Sure, it’s originally a cartoon aimed at little girls, but it seemed to have gotten a huge following of male viewers – bronies (brony) is the correct term. The animation reminded me of the old cartoons I used to watch – Johnny Bravo, Dexter’s Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls…it was only after researching that I found the same people animated all of those shows (I believe a majority is from Lauren Faust and/or her husband). Anyhow, it’s a very entertaining show, and I find it much more enjoyable than the random stuff from Spongebob.
I’m not going to go into deep discussion on the show, rather I’d like to show off the work of one of my friends. One of my favorite background ponies is Doctor Whooves. So, knowing that my friend is trying to get her craft business off the ground, I had commissioned this guy:
Technically, he’s no longer a pony, but a mule. Wanted to make him a little different from the others because…well, he’s a time-lord after all! It came out far superb – way better than what Hasbro has to offer. I have plans to help her business out by also commissioning Derpy, the mane 6, Luna, Big Mac, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
Here’s a bunch of pics that I took when it arrived:
