Hey, people! Hope you're all doing well. I've made it something of a habit to thank folks for various things with llama badges. So if you got one from me at some point in time, the pleasure is all mine.
Now, something very important to start off with.
Andrea's RTCC Art
This time I'd like to tell you all about this group
. To quote from its description page:
"For those who are wondering, Andrea Libman is participating in a charity bike ride this summer to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation, a charity benefitting cancer research and support for cancer sufferers and their families.
Andrea Libman, a well-known Canadian professional voice actress, is known for her work in shows like ReBoot, Dragon Tales, Madeline, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and more recently, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, and the recently-rebooted Maya the Bee series. Andrea holds a BAppSc in Civil Engineering from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver."
The Race to Conquer Cancer is basically a charity focusing on fund-raising for the above cause. In short, the group is meant to reflect Andrea Libman's involvement in this initiative (also with her official support) and seeks to collect Fluttershy-themed images that could be used as prints for her team's jerseys. If you can share some simple, mostly show-accurate vectors with the group, please submit them. Otherwise, you're welcome to join anyway and show your support by watching and spreading word. Either way, please do tell your friends and audiences about the group and its purpose.As far as creating other content for the group is concerned,
it has also been involved in charity auctions and thus welcomes new ideas on how to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation. Suggest some ideas and it's likely that there will be more opportunities to contribute for the cause in the future.
I need Your Icon!
…to commemorate a certain occasion. I'm currently working on a piece that involves a certain sneaky pony and requires 62 deviantART avatars from those of you who would have nothing against declaring yourselves as my watchers. If you'd like me to include yours, reserve a number from 1 to 62 in the comments below. Use your browser's page search (ctrl+f) to make sure no one has picked your choice yet. I wonder if I'll actually manage to collect that many!Joining in the fun so far are:
...indicate some interesting trends. Although it would take many more respondents for proper research in such a big fandom, I think I can already say that I've found out a few interesting things about people's preferences concerning MLP fan comics. I'm glad to see that comic readers generally appreciate every approach that authors have come up with. Individually, they're not equally popular but they all hold promise for enjoyable creations as long as the idea behind them is good, to paraphrase what many of you have noticed.
The options in the poll weren't exactly clear-cut categories - they could be combined, they could be completely unrelated to each other depending on the work, etc. but, as you've noticed, you can expect particular content in some cases. You obviously look to multi-parters for more mature themes and good character development, crossovers when you like the sense of familiarity and the resulting humor, gag comics when you take just a moment in the day to see something funny... It's good that there is varied interest in the readership and many people eventually give everything a shot - I say this should really boost innovation among authors. Thank you for your answers and your poll feedback.
Looking forward to what the future brings,
