Any Artists Interested in Helping Me Make My Game Look Pretty?

Hello everyone! I've been working on a game for the past few months, and recently I've set a deadline for the release of the alpha. (Middle of December) However, I am not the best artist in the world. I can do a little bit, but I'd like my game to look better than what my skillset can offer. If you're an artist and interested in assisting me with my art, please check out my post! I'd really appreciate the help!   https://mlpforums.com/topic/140330-artists-needed-for-sidescrollingaction-platfo

Pinkie Pride Review

HELLO EVERYPONY, Swick here, and I'm gonna review the newest episode, solely because it's my favorite episode of MLP, no doubt. I'm gonna be that guy that doesn't even review, but instead just tells everyone how awesome it was or how much it sucks. This review isn't going to be a novel, *cough*Batbrony*cough*, just a short thingy. WOOHOO LET'S GO   First off, I was already looking forward to this episode because it's centered around Pinkie Pie, and although I don't know too much about Weird Al

This Is a Thing Now...

1. Any scars? - I got one from like five years ago on my left leg. I fell down on my dog's tooth when my dad pushed me 2. Relationship status? - Forever alone. 3. Crush? - Lolno. As a great 14-year old once said, "I believe relationships are a tremendous waste of time" or something along those lines. 4. Kissed anyone? - Pssh, nah. 5. Coke or Pepsi? - I'm not a big soda fan. 6. Someone you hate? - Honestly? I strongly dislike my family. 7. Best Friends? - Forums: Kulth/Garebear (That's

Once In a Lifetime Chance

I purposely made that title semi-misleading.   Hey guys! So today in school we were told we were going to do a presentation about something we're passionate about. I pretty much immediately decided on game design.   As I was walking up to the teacher to get my idea confirmed(there's a better word for it I just blanked), a guy asked me what I was presenting, so I was all like "lulz im doin gamez cuz im cool" and then he was all like "oh thats cool man i thot u wer guna do somthin werd lik pon

Flash Puppet Rigs - ALL VERSIONS

HELLO everypony!       I know that not all of us animators have Adobe Flash CS6, so, being the very kind person I am(don't laugh at me), I've taken it upon myself to convert ALL of the Double Rainboom Pony Puppets, plus Celestia and Luna, to the Flash 8 version! Which basically means anyone with any version of Adobe Flash can animate with them!       I went through a lot of trouble downloading all of the trial versions of Adobe Flash to accomplish this, so I hope this helps

Rant On Blue Screens of Death

Warning: Rage Post Activated   _______________________________________________________________________________ Dear Princess Celestia,   Today I learned that BLUE SCREENS SUCK.   NOW I HATE THE WORLD.   _______________________________________________________________________________     So, how many of us have worked on something cool before?

Do You Dislike the New Layout?

I've already come across my fair share of users that want the old layout back, for various reasons. Don't worry, it's easy as Pinkie Pie to get it back.   Scroll alllllllll the way down to the bottom of the forums. See all those tiny little words down there? In the bottom left, there's something called 'Change Theme'. Click 'MLP Forums'.   You're welcome.

Swick's Pony Animation Compilation

Hey guys! So two weeks ago I began animating pony puppets in Flash, and I'd like some opinions on them. I've done seven animations total. Most of them took only a few hours or an entire day to complete, but the last one took a whole week of work. They go in order from the first ever pony animation I made to my animation that I just finished. Anyway, constructive criticism would be great!   Pinkie Pie: http://filz.us/WxK Pinkie Pie and Applejack: http://filz.us/WQ8 Pinkie Pie and Rarity: htt

Do You Have Adobe Flash CS5?

Hey guys, I need a small favor from somepony with Adobe Flash CS5 or CS5.5. All I ask is that you save these two files as Flash CS4 files and send me the download links. Thanks in advance.

Swick Plays: Yoshi's Island

Ah, Yoshi's Island. Fond memories for many. But not me. I've never played it before today. I know what you're thinking. How have you never played Yoshi's Island? Well, it's simple. I never had a SNES, and I hardly ever bother with playing ROMs. But then some idiot told me, "Hey, you should totally do Yoshi's Island." And then to make them feel better, I lied and told them that was my plan. >   Anyway, the goal of Yoshi's Island is to get baby Mario safely to the end of the level, where ano

Swick Plays: Super Smash TV

So, after my pal Kolth/Scoutaloo/Handsome Jack started posting his adventures on the Pokemon Emerald Randomizer, I decided to do something similar. Today, I played Super Smash TV for the SNES.   Basically, Super Smash TV was a game created by some people who, no doubt, were born from Satan's anus. Why? Well, basically, the first thing they do in this game is put you into a room, and then they start sending in idiots with bats and crap. A lot of them.   This is the first thing I experienced

One Year of Ponies

At exactly this time exactly one year ago, I was watching the pilot episode of My Little Pony. It was one of my animating pals from Flipnote Hatena that introduced me to the show. I thought it was kind of strange, but I didn't think anything of it. Then one night I just got really bored and decided, why the hay not?     I didn't think it was half bad. Of course, I had to watch the next episode to see what happened. Then I had to watch the next episode to see what the rest would be like. Then

Amazing Graffiti and Origami Pikachu Adventures

The small town I live in has the most talented graffiti artists I've seen, even better than those on the Internet. I know that doesn't seem very believable, but here's proof: http://imagesup.net/?di=713768714489   I mean, these guys should be hired to like, paint or something. They're that amazing.   Also, here's the cover art for my new fanfic I'm writing: "The Marvelous Adventures of Pinkie Pie, Pikachu, and a Squirrel with no Face" http://imagesup.net/?di=0137687144812   I made the Pika

I Love You Guys.

I know I'm not normally the emotiony-feels guy, but I think I realized tonight just how amazing our fandom is. We can become best friends with complete strangers instantly. We create beautiful works of art in the form of music, drawing, games, fanfiction, animation, etc. Short story short, this is by far my favorite place to be, on the Internet and IRL. Everyone here is awesome.   You're an amazing person. Yes, you. Even if you think you're not. Even if others don't think so. Live your own lif

Double Rainboom Review

So, we've all gone and watched FlamingoRich's biggest project, Double Rainboom, right? Everyone seems to have varying opinions on it, yet only mine matters, so sit down and shut up.   ...   Nah, I'm only joking. I just wanted to let everyone know what I thought, because I know deep down inside, everyone cares about my opinion. No joke. So, let's begin.   CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD   Animation   So, the animation. Personally, I haven't seen many pony videos, but this was the best animation

I've Found My Favorite Super Mario World Remix EVER.

This is saying something, guys, because I've heard a lot of remixes. A lot. Like, this guy deserves a medal or something, because this song is amazing. It has been stuck in my head ever since I found it a few hours ago, and I've decided to share it with everyone like the kind person I am.   Anyway, here's the link. Remember to give the guy a like or something, because, as I have stated, DIS SONG IS FREAKING AMAZING. SRSLY. LAIK, STAHP REEDIN DIS AN GO LISSEN 2 DA SONG. www.youtube.com/watch?

Can Someone Tell Me What Program This Is?

So, today I noticed something on a Youtube video I was watching. It was an icon on the taskbar. (The one in the image) I know I've seen it before, but I can't figure out what it's called. I know it's a sort of strange question, but I really need to know, so if anyone could help me, that'd be great.

My Youtube Channel (and a joke)

So, it's been awhile since my last blog. Unfortunately, this one isn't going to be much. It's just a joke that I added to make it longer and a link to my new Youtube channel. First off, the joke.   A boy was sitting at his desk in school. He asked the teacher "Teacher, why are flamingos pink?" The teacher told him to go to to the office. When the boy got to the principal's office, the principal asked why he was there. The boy told him it was because he had asked why flamingos were pink. The p

The Cerulean Challenge(Minecraft Challenge Map)

So, I just finished my first Minecraft challenge map today. It took a few days to make, but it was fun nonetheless. I already have plans for another, better, more in-depth map, so expect that sometime in the future. Anyway, onto the map. Almost the entire place is made of bedrock, so there's no breaking blocks. Also, halfway through the making of the map, I discovered how to use Single Player Commands to enchant items, so I went a bit overboard and gave the player overpowered weapons. I'm too la

How to Be Creative, Swick Style

So, I suppose some of us have heard that there's no such thing as a guide to creativity. Well, there isn't, really, I suppose. However, this is probably the closest you'll get to an actual guide. So, I'll start with my way of thinking.   Literally anything can be inspiration if you want it to be. I mean anything. For examp le, that annoying chihuahua next door that never shuts up. If you think about that way more in depth than you usually would, it can easily be a great storyline. So think, in

I Made a Pony Music Video 'n Stuff :D

Hello, everypony! So, a few days ago I decided to try out making a simple PMV(Pony Music Video) in Windows Movie Maker 2.6. I'd like some opinions on it, because it took me quite a while to make this. I actually got the Blue Screen of Death the first time I attempted to export it. Luckily, I've had enough bad experiences with exporting that I knew to save it, so that's good. Anyway, some feedback on this video of mine would be nice. tinyurl.com/worldpmv

See, Ducks Don't Grow Cacti!

It's been a few weeks since my last blog, so I decided 'soup with it, I need some more popcorn.'   ...Nah, I'm kidding. I decided to write a new blog post because I know you guys love 'em and stuff. Though I do want popcorn now...   SO! Here's how my blog posts that are centered on updates(like this one) will usually go: Random Introduction Updates on things that don't really matter, but I feel like including anyway Discorded Again updates Art stuff updates Musical stuffs updates

New Blog. And Stuff. Onomatopoeia is not a lizard.

Hai everypony. I made myself a neat little blog. And I'm adding letters into a big white box. It's quite interesting. Okay, so I made this blog so I could update on random things and people could actually see it. Yay. Also, my *fire hydrant* blogs will have some randomness included, free of charge. So enjoy them. Or potatoes will happen. Alright, let's get serious for just a moment.   First, I wanna start off with writing. I haven't been too motivated to write lately, probably because I've rec
