    Tonight's Successful Meetups

    Bronies-NYC March Monthly Meetup

    Bronies-NYC’s March Monthly Meetup was dedicated to everyone’s favorite green pony. Lovingly named “The Luck of the Lyrish”, we had Lyra themed EVERYTHING! Lyra was popping out of snacks and from shamrocks splashing the walls. Guests came wearing green, The LED light effects of the room were green Technicolor. We had a Best of Lyra video mare-athon including such fan faves as Lyra Finds a Thing, and Anthropology.

    All the Lyra fun going on was a perfect backdrop for the newcomers to the herd getting to know each other, meeting pony friends new and old! We welcomed two new artists who came to show their amazing artwork. Our veteran talents brought wonderful hand-knitted pony plushies, pony T-shirts, pony artwork and other merchandise. Keith Butler from Big Apple Ponycon hosted an AMA about this year’s convention, dropped a promo code for $10 for members of Bronies-NYC.

    In another portion of the room, it was game ON! EnterPlay MLP-CCG was both played and taught. Everypony is super excited for their expansion, Canterlot Knights due out next month. At another table, a game of Pony Monopoly took over everyone who passed by… SO many people wanted in it that the hosts had to create more Monopony money, and substitute blind bag ponies as playing pieces. We also had a Fighting is Magic set up brought by one of the vendors. It was more like “Fighting is Friendship” with all of the new friendships that formed during game play.

    Now you think that would be enough for us NYC Bronies... Eeynope! Our group never does anything halfway. After screening the new episode, after Big Apple Ponycon’s presentation and after the last of the refreshments were served and the last bit of merchandise sold, the House Party began! Bronies NYC’s Mane Minstrel, Kezz pumped out Pony folk/filk music on the mandolin. YourEnigma got us up on the dance floor, grooving to an eclectic mix of nu-disco, nu-jazz, and hip-hop. When DJ Rockit came on with a mash-up of electro house music, everypony was bouncing on the floor, including him, he needed to get in on the party too!

    Here in NYC, the Herd know how to throw a party. So come join us at our next meet up, and come to Big Apple Ponycon we would LOVE to see you. www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC

    Utah Bronies Coffee Meetup 6

    March 22nd: Bronies, coffee, party. It's a recipe for fun, and fun was certainly had at the 6th Utah Bronies coffee meet this last Saturday. Along with watching the new episode they also held a trivia game, CCG training and tables, drawing, video games and even chalk drawing on a chalkboard. The "mane" event was an all-day episode and brony content viewing party. We broke our last attendance record, and had so many people by the end of the meet that with permission of the coffee house, we kept the party going for a couple of hours extra!

    These coffee meets happen regularly, about once every month or so, along with weekly new episode viewing parties every Saturday at noon until the end of the current season.

    Tonight's Groups Looking For More

    Project Preview

    I'm working on a massive project with a friend of mine, we're making a song about the conflict between Celestia and Luna with an animatic/slideshow thing in the background to tell a story. It's taken a lot of work, but hopefully will be awesome when finished.

    I've made a preview here, it's a sort of comic-thing: http://inky-pinkie.deviantart.com/art/SNEAK-PREVIEW-Pls-Read-Desc-442124489?ga_submit_new=10%253A1395527490

    And here is another picture from the animatic I uploaded a while ago:

    Diamond Dog OC Wanted

    At the moment I'm working on two commissions that call for a diamond dog! However, instead of putting in a generic diamond dog, I want him to look more interesting. So, I'm looking for anyone who wants their diamond dog OC in his place! I'm offering the position to the best OC and/or highest bidder.
    Because this is an addition to a piece I've already planned, I want the OC in question to be first and foremost aesthetically pleasing. So if you are interested I'd like to see your OC first thing.
    Note: That means your OC may be rejected. :( Sorry.
    Also note: The placeholder is there for a reason. I will not change the pose of the dog.

    Here are the two commissions in question:

    Examples of my work:

    Please send me a note on Deviantart if you're interested! ^^
    If enough people bid I will make a journal for an auction! ^^ Thanks for reading, and have a nice day!
