Backgrounds5CanterlotLivingAreas by lightningbarer
Backgrounds5CanterlotLivingAreas
Another background for the upcoming Epic Whooves and another Canterlot background, this one set in a residential area, where the majority of the Ponies live. And this is going to be the biggest scene, probably the largest with most detail involved as this'll be where everything starts.
Oh and what a start it'll be.

So yeah, only one more background to do and then I can start work on the actual Epic Whooves...what have I gotten myself into?
Loading...

Update...and where is my hair?

The Doctors say's that my chest infection is still there and I'm on new set of meds, hoping that these don't make me as drowsy as the last lot. "Best" thing is if it doesn't clear up, I'm going for chest x-rays, god bless the NHS for that, because I know how much they can go for in places like the States, I don't envy any of you who live there.

Anyway, I seem to have gone inexplicably bald (j/k), I've been trying to get that god damned fluttula Speed Paint finished for three days now, all today I've had a problem of the freaking music just cutting out for 5 minutes and then starting back up. And this was half way through the video...annoying.

But I finally figured it out about half hour ago, it's the file converter I use for some Youtube videos, some don't post a dwnld link and I like them. they work fine with Itunes and my Iphone, but for some reason when imported to movie maker they were extended to three times their original running time and then losing music a third of the way through. I've hopefully fixed this, a different converter that doesn't leave me high and dry and doesn't do anything insane with the running time.

As I'm writing this I'm saving yet another file for it. I'm hoping this will work this time.

Kinda glad I didn't do one for the Twilight Nightmare Night pic now...

I am exhausted, weak and achy. Just been sick and I feel rotten. Think I'll get a very early night tonight and do nothing.

See you all later.

Pinkie Pie Nightmare Night Jitters oufit. by lightningbarer
Pinkie Pie Nightmare Night Jitters oufit.
Pinkie: Aaaand it's Done!
Me: This is your Nightmare Night Costume?
Pinkie: Yes.
Me: Whats with the sticky taped cutie mark?
Pinkie: It's part of the ace...eths...estth...the look, the look of the outfit alright.
Me: So, you're...a 1920's Gangster?
Pinkie: No, you know who I am.
Me:...Um, Al Capone?
*Flat Stare*
Me: What, I like those kind of hats, I've got one myself! I love them, I've seen a lot of gangster movies where they're featured and Raymond Reddington wears them and he's awesome! They're called Fedora's, I'd wear mine more, but I just don't have a suit to match it, so I rarely wear it...it's why I bought the thing in the first place.
*Another Flat Stare*
Me: What? It's normal to want to go full suit tie and hat, I could wear it with my other suits though, guess that might work, I mean it could work with my grey suit, might look good, wonder...I'm getting it from the dry cleaners tomorrow...well it would be later this morning now but-.
Pinkie: Ahem
Me: Oh alright...I give up, who are you?
Pinkie: I'm Jitterbug Jive! From Tumblr! The guy you are a fan of, who inspired you to do Epic Fluttershy And the upcoming Epic Whooves. And that other project you've got brewing in your head.
Me: You...know about those?
Pinkie: Of course I do.
Me:...How?
Pinkie: You know how I know these things, you gave me this talent.
Me: So...you're going to Nightmare Night as a fan of the show My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, which was the first time the world had ever heard of Nightmare Night.
Pinkie: Yes! Honestly it's like you don't get what Meta means sometimes. I honestly can't wait to show you your Nightmare Night Costume I've made up.
Me: I know what meta means and you're-wait...MY costume, Pinkie...what have you done?
Pinkie: It's a Surprise!!! We've both gotta have an outfit for the retrospective on the Nightmare Night theme for Epic Fluttershy before the story starts back up again.
Me: But...I'm already a Pony, isn't that enough, what have you made for me, Pinkie?
Pinkie: I'm not telling you, it's a Surprise! And it'll be released on Nightmare Night Itself! (That's a hint for all of you who took time to read all this wink grin)



Yeah, 3am and too much coffee leaves me a little silly sometimes lol.

Getting to know me, getting to know all about me!

This is on your head :iconijoinedcozican: opening this pandoras box is a horrible thing! lol

Okay, certain things that are important to me.
Freedom of the individual: the right of a person to do things that the law allows.
Understanding things and people: Whether it's a personal viewpoint or a worldview you hold, I won't judge you on in (of course there are exceptions but I doubt anyone I will chat with will cross those boundaries)
Showing respect: Kinda self evident.
(any other things that might interest you, my opinions on things, just message or note me and I'll explain fully)

I'm an open person mostly, there are certain things that I'll keep to myself, just because I like to keep certain aspects of my life private, but for the most part I'm an open book to people.

I hesitate to use the word Atheist to describe myself, I don't believe there is a God, but I can't prove that one way or the other, anyone who will seriously get to know me will probably hear me say at some point when I describe myself that I'm a "Liberal Secular Humanist" on face value it doesn't make sense but to sum it up in one sentence.
I respect those who believe in their magical sky daddy, I don't insult them (he says after that phrase) and I will fight FOR their right to believe in whatever they want, while stopping them from curtailing the freedoms of others...it's a headache at times to be honest.

I think it's quite evident that I'm a Brony...but if it's not. FANMADE Fluttershy is best pony1 by lightningbarer and ain't no one able to prove me wrong.
I'm not into clopping, I don't judge but my tastes are different. And that's all you get for now lol.
I love most all of Sci-Fi, whatever it is, you can ask me most anything on Trek and I'd be able to tell you freely off the top of my head.
I love the Fantasy Genre, something about it hooked me and hasn't let got since I picked up the hobbit for the first time in the highschool library.
Strangely enough I love History and especially Mythology, I've got books on the Greek, Norse and Mesopotamian myths and I've read them about five times each.
I love Superheroes and pretty much agree with the internet celeb Linkara from Atop The Fourth Wall in saying they're our modern myths and legends.
I used to be a big-time gamer, but I've really slipped in that department, there are very few things I want to buy these days for gaming and even rarer do I look for news about it.
I want to try all kinds of food, I've tasted a heck of a lot of different styles of cooking in my life and want to continue, if I can find a good sushi restaurant, I'd willingly go on my own and try everything on the menu lol. Oh and I SO want to try shellfish, especially crab and Lobster. (btw
:iconijoinedcozican:, after your journal post, I am going to try deep fried insects, they'd better be delish lol)

And most of all, I am a storyteller, there's something inside me that just can think up stories that I build on and expand and it's something I really want to do, even if it just ends up as a hobby.
I've known I've had this since my second year in high school, when my English Teacher asked us to write a ten page story about anything we want, just be creative(I think it was near the end of term). I ended up doing forty pages, set in Star Trek based around crew logs for instance (Luitenant Kal Maclearan, personal log, stardate XXXX.X), chronicling the lives of a family in Starfleet starting from the Kirk Era all the way up to the last family member alive, a young female Commander and the only child of the family, who was on a ship headed towards Wolf 359 and a certain epic battle...yeah, even back then I was dark with my characters lol

And finally, to those who want to know my actual name.
It's Alan.
