okay so this is what's up peoples
today i started school again. it's my senior year of college. that bachelor's degree in philosophy is almost within my gnarled little grasp, but, being senior year at UCLA's philosophy department, it means lots of work.
especially because at the moment i'm taking a course on Immanuel Kant (the final boss of Western philosophy) and also a course on 19th-century German philosophy that mainly focuses on Hegel (one of the bonus bosses that you fight after the final boss because the game designers were sociopaths). so that means i have other stuff to do.
EDIT 12/26: HAHAHAHA CAN'T LET YOU DO THAT, IMMANUEL KANT yeah that quarter is over. however, a new quarter starts in a couple weeks so below still applies:
i will still try to turn out one of those big My Little Pony
comics, once a month. i have a bunch of great ideas that you're all going to love, and by love i mean hate, and by hate i mean complain because it's not a fully animated and voiced video. i just need to cobble together enough time to mold their material cause from the surrounding universe and breathe into them the essence of being or whatever. so i'll try!
so in hopes of preventing people from being all "hey you should do a comic about Trixie singing 'You're Only Second Rate'" and i have to be all "um bro i did that already," have the Master List of Uno's My Little Pony
Song Comics:Nightmare Moon - Be PreparedMr. Discord's SongTrixie - You're Only Second RateZecora - Don't Go to the ForestDr. Adorable - A Brand New DayAhuizotl - Snuff Out the LightQueen Chrysalis - My LullabyIron Will - I'll Make a Man Out of YouAngel Bunny - HellfireThis is Nightmare NightSavagesKing Sombra - In the Dark of the NightWelcome to the Diamond DogsTrixie - Hex Girl
of course, that is hardly the only stuff i'm doing. i have future comics planned! that's right, uno used Plan for the Future, and while it's usually not very effective, this time it actually worked. so i have some songs either ready to go or being strongly considered, including but not limited to:
-"Poor Unfortunate Souls" from The Little Mermaid
-the Darkwing Duck
-"It's Tough to Be a God" from The Road to El Dorado
-"Are You In or Out?" from Aladdin and the King of Thieves
-"How Bad Can I Be?" from The Lorax
-"Prince Charmless" from The Secret of Anastasia
- yes, this song
-"Perfect Isn't Easy" from Oliver & Company
-"The Plagues" from The Prince of Egypt
-"Friends on the Other Side" from The Princess and the Frog
-some manner of Irish drinking song, just in time for St. Patrick's Day ha ha ha not really
-"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" by the Charlie Daniels Band
and of course, i am open to suggestions, as long as what you suggest could reasonably fit in with either the songs listed above or the songs i've already used for comics. so, like, if you come to me with this shrieky death-metal white power concept album and expect me to make a My Little Pony
comic about that, i will tell you no and possibly inform the FBI about you.
i also have a fanfic.
still can't quite believe i'm doing this, but then again, i still can't really believe mashup comics of My Little Pony
and Disney songs have brought over half a million pairs of eyeballs to my dA gallery, so there ya go.
also also, i have another project going on! long ago, before cartoon ponies made off with all my testosterone, i drew shitloads of giant robots! well, in the spirit of Hollywood, i am hearkening back to those simpler times with a franchise reboot! for the past year or two i've been steadily drawing a shitload of mecha, and the other day i spent the seven hours it took to scan them all in. i'll have well over 400 images by the time this thing is all done, and i'll pump out a few of those as time permits. on the other hand, other projects--not to mention school--will take up most of my attention, so this one will be a long-term kind of project that steadily fills my gallery until either i run out of robots or dA decides to cap the number of deviations you can have in your gallery or whatever. so that will be going on!
EDIT 1/19/2013: lol that's actually done now
needless to say, although i've never really taken requests before, i'll be super ultra omega extreme not taking requests until about June of next year. and all of this stuff is subject to the availability of free time on my part, as well as my will to keep on living after i've read thirty pages of Hegel's Phenomenology
and yet have not understood a single word of it.
so that is what's going on. and the state of the uno is strong (but not for long).EDIT 2/17:
some of y'all who watch me may be wondering why my giant song comics keep appearing in your watch list. the reason for that is that i'm updating the description with translated comics or recordings or PMVs or whatever, as i get them, and i want to make sure people see them. often i've had someone send me something they made for a comic that i posted months ago, and traffic has slowed down to like ten views a day, and if someone's going to go to the trouble of making something out of my big dumb comics i'd like to make sure it gets seen. so that's what's going on with that.
