That is beautiful
I wish I can live in Los Angeles!Long Live Lauren! She is so great because she is helping Japan and drawing Derpy!
Someday one of these will show up on something like antiques roadshow, I just know it.
That Derpy drawing will cost billions one day.
Can't wait for more details! Or maybe I can...If the auction doesn't end before this Friday I might have a chance at one of these.
This is the greatest fandom ever. EVER!I wish I had wads of disposable income to try and get the Derpy drawing...but something tells me that it's going to end up selling for A LOT more than I earn.Oh well, I may try for the Twilight drawing!
I'm willing to throw down for that derpy sketchBRING THE PAIN BITCHES
(Mostly copied from a ponychan post)I talked to Chris at Q POP yesterday and here's what I know about the auctions:They will be on eBay, most likely starting tomorrow or Wednesday. The plan is for a straight auction with $75 starting bid.We're thinking 5-day auctions, with one start per day (so the first will end on Sunday, the second on Tuesday, and so on...)We haven't yet talked about the order in which the sketches will be auctioned.That's all I know at this point. I'll post as soon as I know more. If anybody has questions, I'll try to get answers. ----We wanted to make sure that EVERYBODY has a chance to bid on these... no worries that the auctions are going to flash by before funds and/or will can be mustered.The staggered end times will also mean that if you miss on one, you get a chance on a different one.Good luck everybody! I promised I'll keep my hands off the AJ sketch (and I will), but I'm gonna be bidding against you on the others!(And... holycrapDERPY!)
Derpy's auction will be a feeding frenzy.
My mind just exploded.
I won't be bidding but I can't wait to see how high the derpy auction gets.
So, is this Derpy becoming canon or is this just the most awesome fanart ever? o.O
I think that the people on japan can hear my exploding fangasm right now!I will pay fucking damn money for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well, I WAS going to buy a new motherboard for my computer.FUCK THAT, I AM BUYING DERPYI really hope it doesn't go over $300. Because then I'm out of luck.
oh my goooooooooooooood
derpy was born from the deep core of madness of 4chan, she is the soul and mind of /co/....my God is a good God >:)
You guys, I love Lauren Faust.I love this woman.
Note the filename on the last one:http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t19/loocyloo/Derpy_11.jpg
@AnonymousShe's using the fan-name for the background character that we latched on to.
Yeah, 5 days is cool so that no one misses out entirely because of a bad day...but...We ALL know what's gonna happen. 5 minutes before the auction ends BOOOM! AAAAAAAAGH! NOOOOOO! I can't believe the price increased over 5000%!But you know, if they reeaaaAAALllly wanted to make money - they'd auction off -1 actual whatever-you-want sketch request by Lauren Faust herself. Duuuuuuddde.
@TooMuchI saw this and suddenly knew that Lauren may be one of the best cartoon producers ever. :P
@ Sunset SkyWhat we have here is Lauren Faust going meta. With her sketch of Derpy Hooves she has made a concept-style sketch inspired by fan art inspired by a background character in a series that started out as a series of her concept sketches. That just blows my mind.
Well, goodbye 3DS.I'll just have to wait til I get another 300 dollars.Its going to a good cause...The cause to help me get Derpy.Oh, and Japan n' stuff.
@Anonymousthat's practically what the derpy pic is anyway!it's a shame i won't be able to afford these, as i know full well these aren't going to go cheap.
Pinkie with wings? Lol, you're damn right Rainbow would never get a break.In more ways than one. :P
mfw Derpy sells for 20% more than any other sketch
I love Lauren Faust. She sells concept art of a character created after the show starts to air. And Pinkie Pie was going to be a pegasus. The consequences will never be the same...
It wouldn't surprise me if we see a new wave of Pinkie/Dash shipping fics with Pinkie growing wings somehow, lol.
Lauren is not stupid. She knows the fans of the show willing to shell out dump loads of cash for those drawings are the same ones who HNNNNNNGGGG- over Derpy.
Pinkie with wings... here's my take on it already.The day celestia gave Pinkie wings, was the same day she got sealed for a three years by the vote of everyone in Ponyville, Canterlot and Fillydelphia.Luna was the happiest filly alive after that, unfortunately the wings couldn't be removed once granted. And the world would never be the same as Pinkie Pie slowly took over the world with the power of flight.
@AnonymousWING FIC. YES~
And of course then Pinkie can get wingboners, too, lol. Actually, since wings would be new for her, she'd probably have absolutely no idea how to control them as most Pegasi must learn to at an early age.
This is it, i'm selling my house, my car, my wife and kids.ok, not really. for the longest time, though, i wish i could
Lauren Faust IS officially my fucking hero. That auction is just mind-bottling. (Yes, bottling!)
We (the internets) should all chip in to win the Derpy auction and then donate it to a museum or somewhere where it'll be permanently on display and saved for prosperity.
@BlitzWing00Brilliant! That way no one person will hog all the Derp...she shall belong to all of us and we can make pilgrimages to the museum to behold her glory in person.
Dang, this is getting out of hand!It's about helping Japan, not buying derp.:/I know, I'm sounding like a jerk, but I just had to get that out of my system.
@PutukIn this case, it is kinda the same thing.
@AnonymousI just did a quick goggle for Animation Museum, and found three in Japan. Then it dawned on me, what if we chip in, win it, then see if we could get one of the Animation Museums in Japan to permanently display it. See if we could get them to display it with a little plaque explaining the significance of Derpy and that we (the internets) won this through a Charity Auction for Japan and donated it to a Japanese Museum! That would be epic wouldn't it?Museums:http://www.sam.or.jp/flier.htmhttp://www.ghibli-museum.jp/en/welcome/http://blog.q-taro.com/anime/toei-animation-gallery/

It's not Pinkie-with-wings it's a drawing of Surprise who was supposed to be one of the characters originally but got turned into Pinkie Pie.
