not a clever title
September is the best month because Equestria Girls, of course.

oh shoot I need to buy my tickets! thanks for reminding me!

(also Boxtrolls comes out the day before!! this will be a good movie month ♥)

Why is September the best month? Also, are there any October ponies because October best month for meeee~

because 1) fall is the best season, and 2) my birthday! (19 MORE DAYS OH GOODNESS)

there’s ponies for every month! g3 had two birthday month lines, one for birthflowers and one for birthstones (October’s ponies are October Dreams and October Calendula). g1 also had a birthflower line using alternate flowers (that one had October Cosmos), I thought they had a birthstone one too but I can’t find it! maybe I’m thinking of the jewellery baby ponies…

tl;dr I wanna draw monthly ponies now.

happy BEST MONTH everybody!

You snuck Clangterlot in? I didn't see it.

third panel, “I’d love to see all the mechanical creatures they have [up in Clangterlot]” before AJ covered it up. :B

I’m probably never going to outright name it so let’s say Clangterlot is canon, but it’s such a ridiculous name that everyone is too embarrassed to speak it aloud (except Fluttershy but nobody can hear it anyway). unless I come up with something better later I guess! like Canterbot (no wait that’s even sillier, I am so bad at this)

I love how you managed to sneak Clangterlot into the latest Steamquestria post :D

forgive me for saying this, but your Rumpelstiltskin twins remind me of the O'Hair twins. However, I think your OCs are amazing despite the similarities.

thank you! ha ha yeah I see it too, though I first drew them before the designs for Holly and Poppy were released so it’s weird how that worked out! I think a lot of it may just be that they’re made to be contrasts, so there’s a lot of short vs long and flowy vs crisp (plus the preppy Royalness vs hipster-punky Rebelness). their actual outfits and hairstyles aren’t really similar though otherwise I might’ve given them more of a makeover! :B

I wanted to try the EAH box-style art, so it was time to dust off my Rumpelstiltskin OC girls again! :x I can’t get them looking quite to standard but it was a learning experience. there’s something very freeing about scribbling all over the place! also, bonus card versions.

went ahead and gave them slight redesigns, including biting the bullet and doing a custom baroque pattern instead of borrowing one. …though in retrospect Milly’s earrings really should be thread spools instead of wheels, arrrrrgh

Does Texel have an art site or Tumblr or anything? He sounds familiar...
Anonymous

nope! he doesn’t draw and he refuses to get a tumblr for some mysterious texel reason. he joins me in streams sometimes, which is a good thing because otherwise I would have no proof that he actually exists!

So Texel was born on his/your mum's birthday? That must have been a great (because son) and bad (because painful) birthday for her

he was her birthday present! but he caused her to miss her free birthday car wash. :(

Sorry but who's texel?

Texel is my brother! c:
