Artist Spotlight: The Viking of Bronystate

So one thing I’d really like to do with these weekly blog posts is spend some time to give a shout-out to talented artists in the community.  Let’s face it, the biggest exposure we get to FiM comes from the works of talented artists, musicians and video makers from all over.  If nothing else, they deserve a few moments of exposure and respect.

With that in mind, I’d like to kick off the first of these spotlights by showing off none other than our resident viking: Wrek.  If you’ve been here long enough, you’re probably familiar with his art streams.  We’re all honored and grateful to have a talented person like him on our team.

This guy makes magic out of pixels, let me tell you.  All of his images (when SFW) are a pleasure to see.  I would consider myself a very lucky man to receive a commissioned work from him.  But why ramble when I can show off some of his works?  Without further ado, here are some of the works of Wrek:

 

 

 

 

If you’d like to see more of Wrek’s artwork, feel free to check out his deviantart here:

If you have other artists in mind who you’d like to see showcased here, feel free to send me an email at [email protected]

 

[EDIT] Apologies for the image scrunching, wordpress is lame.  I’ll see if there’s a workaround for future posts

Ah…what a wonderful time I’m thinking of today.  It’s that period during a new user’s life which defines their place in our chatroom for an eternity.  The one choice a user must keep for all eternity…until they use the /nick command again.  Obviously, I’m referring to picking an alias (nickname).  Some of us like to stay anonymous, others like to use parts of their own name.  Regardless, we all eventually come to a decision which, to varying degrees, shows a little bit of ourselves.  A nickname reflects our interests, our hobbies.  It’s something we generally keep close to home.  We may change them occasionally, but they’re still special.

Now that I’ve rambled for a few sentences, onto my purpose: we’re going to have a little fun with this post.  “Fun” being used in the same way students in Middle School have fun over needlessly dramatizing student body president elections so they can get out of schoolwork.  I want everyone (in the comments section) to nominate their favorite nickname here.  One that is particularly inventive perhaps, or one that made you giggle (like a Ghostie…hah…haha…hahaha).  Give us your nomination and your reason IT CAN’T BE YOUR OWN

And while you’re at it, throw in a story about how you made your nick, or whatever the process was.  The winner will get a super special prize.  And by “super” I mean mediocre, and by “special” I mean “couldn’t think of something better” They will get to choose the subject/topic for next week’s blog post.  How fun!  Go at it chat!  Nominate those names!

The Tree from which the Spoiled Apple Fell

Apologies for the late post on this one, I’d like to have a decent excuse but the fact is I was spending way too much time zapping demons with my wizard power.  So I wanted to experiment with a more discussion based post this time, something to get us chatting with each other as opposed to just textwalling our stories and then never really commenting on other posts.  I really don’t need to stress this, but I’m putting it in anyway: keep in mind this is for polite discussion.  In other words, it’s okay to disagree just don’t take it too far.

So I haven’t actually finished Season 4 yet (I believe the Breezie episode is next on my list), so if something has happened I don’t address, I apologize ahead of time.  One character in particular has caught my attention over these few years.  I’ve brought it up a few times if you remember our post-show throwdown’s with CR, but I’ve never really made a discussion out of it.  This character, to me, is one of the most interesting elements to over analyze as all bronies are fond of doing.  She is pretty much universally hated by the fandom as a whole and I can’t really argue that she didn’t do anything to deserve it.  After all, her role in the show is to serve as an antagonist to the Cutie Mark Crusaders. In the event my ever so “subtle” clues were not clear enough, I am referring to Diamond Tiara.

So what makes DT so interesting to me?  She’s a stuck up, spoiled little brat who only serves as an easy enemy for our beloved little trio of cutie mark searchers.  Her cutie mark is, quite literally, an expression of her complete and utter uselessness.  She is, essentially, forever reliant on the image and wealth of her family name.  How can someone so obnoxious and irritating offer anything meaningful for us to appreciate?  I think the answer lies in the nature of her core character.

Let’s take a step back and look at the particular world we’re dealing with here.  As with any over-analysis, I’m going to be assuming a few things we normally suspend from television; namely that these characters are not the exaggerated representation of ideals for the sake of storytelling and that they can be compared to real human personality.  With this show, we’re dealing with “people” who have their entire identities defined by one unique trait; one special talent.  This one particular mark determines their entire existence. We’ve seen, such as in episodes like Party of One and Sonic Rainboom, the inability to perform tasks related to this identity can cause rather serious mental breakdowns.  Needless to say, a Cutie Mark is vital to one’s identity and well being.

What does this have to do with the “charming” little offspring of Filthy Rich?  Well, her cutie mark defines her as a spoiled brat.  That’s quite the lovely future ahead for her.  Wouldn’t that make you feel so special, forever defined as “that girl who uses daddy’s money”?  Now, I’m certainly not going to try and draw sympathy towards DT, that’s not my intention at all.  I am, however, interested in her motivations.  All of her negative attention and what can be defined as bullying is directed to the “Blank Flanks” of her school.  Why is this?  What would ponies with literally limitless potential to define themselves offer as a threat to a pony who will forever be provided for?

Am I crazy on this one?  I like to put DT in a position where her unending jealousy and issues with self-inadequacy cause her to lash out against those who have everything she doesn’t (isn’t that a delightful piece of irony?).  Let me know what you guys think here; talk it out, share your opinions.  I’d like to see some real discussion going on here.  Share your thoughts, put on those fedoras and let’s over analyze the shit out of this child’s show.
