JazuKuun dropped these off in the news mailbox, and I’m always up for posting something that was actually submitted to me. And to answer your question, YES, you can submit stuff for our media section, for the most part the media section on the site is made up of what I happen to come across, which my basic source is a mixture of EqD, IRC and Ponychan to a lesser extent. So if you made a video and want it posted up, submit it.
It seems the RD Network community has come to the conclusion that they must split in half, but its an agreement on both sides. Since its creation, basically a lot of roleplaying has cropped up, which of course there are people out there that do not enjoy it as much as others. I’m a roleplayer (though not of ponies) and indeed with the way the network works, a split would be a good move. Also it seems they have some trouble with the server, probably due to the heavy load it gets, so I can’t say if a new server will be added or if this is just a split in the service, but it might help that situation.
Apparently they are looking for a banner, roughly the same size as the current one, for the roleplaying side of the community. Entries can be thrown at firstname.lastname@example.org, deadline May 11th.
The auction for the 2008 Pinkie Pie Concept Sketch by Lauren Faust has ended. $4,050.00 dollars. I had a feeling this sketch would run up that much, even over the Derpy sketch. Its an original concept sketch drawn before the series, and its of pegasus Pinkie Pie.
Applejack @ $1,375.00 with 32 bids and 23 hours left. Twilight Sparkle @ $1,500.00 with 31 bids and 1 day 23 hours left.
Sometime in the near future there will be HD uploads of episode 05, 10 and 11 which are currently missing from the episode list. I’ve had a few people ask my why, but usually under the idea that I’m the one making them, which is false. HD episodes are made by community member Mentos, who gets them from a place called TrollHD, which is a usenet group that records HD shows and posts raw recordings. Mentos encodes them and cleans them up for us, and releases them.
TrollHD did not start recording the HD of MLP:FiM until about episode 13, which is why the earlier episodes are missing. The episodes that do appear have been shown in reruns, which is when we do get them. The above episodes I do believe were aired over the easter holiday (would have to recheck my news). Sooner or later we’ll get them all.
You saw BigPonyMac’s other work on EqD, s/he is the one working on the sculpture of Fluttershy’s head, so while checking out my dA updates I see this. Probably easier work as its not totally 3d but I know I sure couldn’t craft something that looked this fine, so behold, the Rainbow Dash tile.
BPM also posted out a thank you note to the community.
I can’t believe I’ve gotten so much support for my Fluttershy project! I submitted it to ED not expecting much, but the next thing I knew it was featured and I was getting all kinds of attention! Thank you all SO MUCH! I’d like to say that all of you plus the MLP community as a whole have given me a new found inspiration to move forward with my art. I had grown stagnant as of late but MLP plus you guys have kicked it into overdrive. I’ve got some other projects lined up and I can’t wait to get to work on them. Also, I had some extra clay laying around and I worked on another sculpture last night. It’s almost finished. I’m hoping to have it in the same firing as Fluttershy. It’s a tile of Rainbow Dash chillin’ on a cloud. I’ll post a picture of it sometime tonight. The only thing that saddens me is that when the semester’s over I won’t be able to work with traditional clay anymore since I won’t have access to the kiln. I’ll have to resort to polymer clay. Which is fine, but I like the feel of traditional clay better. Again, thank you all for your support! I hope I can continue to provide awesome artwork for this community to enjoy. I love knowing that there’s people out there that enjoy my work. That’s what being an artist means to me. Until next time, stay safe and much love to you all! ~bigponymac
Luna getting all the love with original fan made music. This is another chunk of awesomeness, if you didn’t catch it over on EqD. Again, will be adding all these to the media section once we get the new setup running.
