So....we're designing a canon OC, or just an OC for the man? Either way, he asked the right fandom....
Also, "CHAAARGE" is the best label ever =D
This is going to be fun to watch...
Shower him with art, schnell!
Yeah, yeah. Here we go again, etc.
Looks like Leon Johansson knows of our influence
@Octavia I give it twenty minutes.
He has no idea what he just did.
AASDAJBLAJBLAFJBALBJN! That's me! That's me! This is my second time being featured on Equestria Daily! YAY!
THANK YOU SO MUCH, SETH! :D
I pity his inbox...
Heh, I also pity him. He will have to choose one of the hundreds (?) of pics sent to him, no matter which he pick others will be saddened by not being choosen...
now this is just mean XD
And the floodgates open. :D
He knows not of what he hath done.
This was pretty funny at first. But now it's just getting a bit old. And they all "know what they just did" when they say that. lol It's certainly no secret now.
@RavemsDagger you've sent me well over a hundred emails. I get thousands from you guys. I managed. But this....this is on a whole nother scale....
Sethisto.You are awesome.<3
@Jordan haha congrats dude!Well he will definantly be getting what he asked for, at least a 100 times over :PNice one Seth on putting it up here!
Hmm. Considering we can crash websites and flood email inboxes like no other fandom, if Mr. Andrews indeed wants his own pony, he's gonna have plenty to choose from.
@OctaviaI agree, the whole "He doen't know what he is asking for" thing is slightly overrated. Not that we shouldn't flood him with pics... We should just know that they know that we will flood them.
@Steffan AndrewsUh oh indeed :D.
@Steffan AndrewsIt's a good thing, Steffan. Embrace it.And thank you for everything.
@Steffan AndrewsSteel yourself, my good man.
@Stefan AndrewsHave you received anything yet?
So, who's up for "Silver Baton?" He's an orange maned unicorn with a darkish gray coat. He is bespectacled, and his cutie mark is, obviously, a baton with a ton of sparkles. In fact, he doesn't go anywhere without it! He even uses it to fight when the situation arises!Alright, so he was born in Canterlot, and didn't discover his talent until late in his foalhood. He became fast friends with Octavia, and quite nearly began dating her. However, his love for music overcame his contemporary interests and soon -- Ooh! I need to write a fanfiction about this...
@Steffan Andrews Brace yourself, ponies are coming.
Seth your so mean for posting this :D
HA! I love this fandom.
Maybe a special Drawfriend for Steffan's OC?Probably better than flooding his inbox.
@Steffan Andrews"My body is not ready!"
Well, I didn't expect ending up on a post on this site... I'm not sure I approve or not.
Is that a challenge!? On behalf of all the artistic bronies, challenge accepted! Why wasn't I born with any artistic talent?
That CHAAARGE tag... I love it!
Well, you're doomed...
Being featured on EqD is not far off from being the target of a DDoS attack
@Steffan AndrewsWas that a Pinkie Pie Grade "Uh Oh" which usually means that all of Reality is coming apart at the seams (or foalsitting problems), or a regular uh oh?
HEY! If you're going to make a pony of him, here's his Blogger photo for reference: Blogger photo
@Steffan Andrews The only thing I would worry about is trying to choose one out of so many. The artistic talent of this community is mind-boggling, and the response is gonna be significant.And while I'm at it, thank you so much for the music.
And then he had all the ponies.
Unleash the Ponypocalypse!!
i already sent em a pic today.....hope mine gets picked!!!
Ponies. . . ponies everywhere. . .
@Steffan Andrews Thanks for all the hard work you put into making the show so great.Will be interesting to see the all the ones that get made for him.
This kind of interaction between fans and the people behind the show is what makes being a fan of the show so awesome.
I wonder how will his pony be like?
I want a Pony too!! :Oplz send here! <# http://www.facebook.com/CAM0BLAM0
Haha this should be fun, gives me some motivation to start working on some art again
Aaaaaand the first images are starting to be posted. This fandom is incredible sometimes.
Oh Seth.You just love siccing your army on hapless composers, VAs, and any other poor unfortunate soul don't you.Ah well.FOR THE HERD!
@The NumbermanCompletely agreed. I once asked one of the senior storyboard artists, Sabrina Alberghetti, AKA Sibsy on DeviantART if she had any suggestions on how I could improve the proportions of a particular pony sketch I was working on. By the time I was able to check back she had already gone over the sketch herself and fixed what needed to be fixed (which was a lot at the time) and was ready to e-mail it to me when I was able to PM her my address. Needless to say I was completely shocked and immediately my respect for Sabrina, the show's team, and FiM in general soared and has been soaring since.
Bah... I decided that I wont bother make him an OC. That's one less email in your inbox, I guess.
I imagine it as an adaptation of the "flood of babies" nightmare.One pony will pop up and Steffan will go "Aww, it's so sweet!" Two more will suddenly appear behind him and he will say "I can't choose!" Then the ponies will keep on showing up all over his house, all demanding "pick me!" He will keep pushing them out of the way, but more keep popping up.Then, a slow rumble will shake the earth and a pile of ponies will start building up against the windows and doors. He will bolt through the small crowd of ponies to hold back the front door. It will hold for about four seconds, then with a resounding "NOOOOOOO!!!" Steffan will disappear beneath a wave of ponies that will break down the door, all of them crying out to be chosen to represent him.But then, that's just how it will work in my mind.
@Jay6We were supposed to email them...?o n O I kind of just posted it on the page. But dooooo it. He'll enjoy it.
@BZKlintWow, that would of been awesome. To have her take the time out to help out like that.Though I would of had mixed feelings about using the fixed one as anything but a reference as would want to learn to do it right myself.
i don't know if this is good, but even those who can't draw can send him an OC using the pony creator xDDDDhttp://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Pony+Creator+Full+Version#/d47efz4
Everyone deserves a pony, bro.
Welp, here we go again. I truly enjoy spamming these guys with appreciation.
God bless the CHAAARGE tag
If I had any art skills, I'd be making ponies for Steffan too. Sadly, all he gets from me tonight is undying praise. :<
he just recently said he wants a pony in a conductor's tuxedo.
To all you artist out there- (from Steffan's comments on Facebook) Conductor's Tuxedo and Piano cutie mark. Get to it!
@HawklaserWell it was as part of a vector I was going to make for someone else, and she was fine with me uploading the finished product to DA. I've also asked if I could vector some of her sketches from time to time, and she's always been okay with that too. Of course whenever I've uploaded anything based off one of her sketches, I always make sure to credit, link back to her deviation/profile page, and advised others to +favorite/watch her and her awesome art. She really is a great person.
and he wants to be a pegasus
@The BuilderHaha, that's awesome... someone should animate that!
He's watching us! I've never been part of a fandom like this before, I love how interactive so many people on the show are with the fans.
Looks like someone just called down a WAVE 'O' PONIES. I am gonna guesstimate about .....100+ inital sketches, approximately 40 vectors or color images, maybe about 10 or so full wallpaper sized 'concept ponies made for lulz'. Nothing drawfriends love more than a pony challenge.
Haha can't wait to see all the pegasus ponies in conductor garb with piano based cutie marks. Oh also, made a FB acc just for this (finally) and first post on EQD for a long time lurker!
@Steffan AndrewsThanks for the awesome background music!And I would also say brace yourself for the flood of ponified images if it weren't a late/after-the-fact warning.
Ok bronies, do your stuff.*sigh*That poor man...
Suddenly, thousands of ponies.
@Steffan Andrews Also a massive thank you for all the hard work you put into the show :)
Break the dam, release the river!
Oh god I just realized something. We are basically at the mercy of anyone who works on this show. O_O
Then I guess that the next questions will be that once it's chosen how long before it gets shipped? :P
looks like he's chosen one.
