  1. Eh... okay. Might as well post this. Dunno if it'll be popular or not, but let's give it a shot. Basically a person quotes or gives a somewhat vague picture, description, or video of a reference that someone can guess and give an answer in the next post. Try to refrain from looking anything up. Here's an example: And so forth. Yes, I believe giving a vague picture of someone in your post for someone to figure out what it is counts too. So, let's begin. "Maybe we should call ourselves the Febreeze brothers 'cause we're feel'in so fresh right now."
  2. It any of you are up for a laugh and have not seen this already, you are in for a treat. I used to love watching the original Teen Titans, so curiosity drove me to watch the new version. I found this clip on YouTube and I just about died: What's even better is that my favorite charatcer Raven is a brony! Ahh! Sorry for the exitement but I just thought I'd share
  3. No matter what level you are as an artist, such a journey towards improvement need not be a solitary one and is far more enjoyable and fulfilling with the company and support of others. Some create art as a hobby and recreation while others wish to make it a profession, but no matter which you may fall under, all of us do it because we find joy and pleasure in the simple act as well as improve upon our skills. This is one reason I feel that Octavia’s Hall here can be such a valuable resource on the forums for aspiring artists, no matter what medium you choose to express your artistic creativity, as it gives everyone a chance to share their work with their fellow members and gain valuable insight and advice on how to improve and grow. In an effort to build upon Octavia’s Hall to make progress toward this goal as well as assist these budding artists in spending less time looking for resources and more time drawing, that is where this little thread comes into the picture. Essentially, I wish to build a library of sorts, because we can never have too many of those! In here, I hope to provide a diverse array of tutorials, references and other such resources, categorized by subject and skill level, for easy and convenient access all of those that are interested. To me, anyone and everyone has the ability to draw, write, create music or create any sort of art imaginable; it is not some mystical gift or talent that is bestowed upon a few individuals by the alignment of the stars or any such nonsense. It simply takes time, practice, support and, this is quite important, having fun to help foster and bolster a creative individual. It is my hope that this little project of mine will at least help those in that regard, or at least help them learn something new and build upon their skills. But one person cannot do this alone, as there is a nearly infinite pool of wealth out there, which is where you come in. If you find a tutorial, reference or resource that you feel would be a great addition to this collection or if you have a suggestion to make operations run smoother or easier around here, please feel free to either PM me or leave a comment! As with every other threads on the forums, all posts must adhere to the Global Rules (no excessive blood/gore, vulgarity or any other NSFW content, no advertising, etc.) so please keep this into consideration when suggesting new materials to be added. I would also ask that if you do provide a proposed tutorial, please try to provide the name of the artist whom created it. This is not entirely necessary, but I would love to give the artists credit where credit is due (and I know I have failed to do this thus far, though I do hope to remedy this soon). I am hoping to add additiona tutorials and sections (including sculpture, music, plushie building and other mediums if possible) over time goes by, so I do ask for your patience until everything is initially set up. I know there is a lot of room for improvement here, which will take some time. Until then, please excuse the chaos around here, leave any suggestions or thoughts you may have and enjoy!

  4. One of the most refreshing things I’ve found as a writer is the ability to add in references to outside media, current events, etc. A well placed reference is fun to toss in, rewarding when found by the reader, and can give your ego a good pat when it’s recognized by the reader. Most of the time trivia and references are just added for extra “flavor,” though building a plot using a simple reference is not unheard of. However, as with everything else, it’s possible to overdo or ham up a reference. If you make it really in your face, then it fails because it becomes too obvious and self serving. Its an amateur mistake that I make far too often. It’s not the end of the world if something goes unnoticed. If they want to get the reference, they will. With the exception of inside jokes, there aren’t often reasons to repeat references throughout the story. If the reference is important to the plot, repetition can be important. Otherwise, repetition has roughly the same effect as making the reference too obvious. All in all, it’s a fairly simple balance to meet, but can pack a lot of extra flavor for the story, which is nice. Just remember that less is more in most cases. Side note: I hid one in here somewhere.
  5. Weeks ago watching brickleberry i saw that short scenes with reference of My Little Pony. Its not grand thing, but if you have seen references of MLP in other shows, post here for us to see! "Image of Brickleberry, the name of episode is "My Little Boy Malloy" i guess" "Image of Brickleberry, episode "Global Warning"
  6. In the new episode, Trade Ya, I caught something I find hilarious. The Twins from Bioshock Infinite, Robert and Rosalind Lutece, were spotted wandering around the Exchange with a bird cage. Why were they there? What were they going to trade for the bird cage? What do you guys think of this?
  7. What are all your favorite MLP references to other media, pop-culture, etc? My favorites are the Star Wars reference in The Return of Harmony, as well as two references to "The Shining"
  8. Did anyone catch any references in the 2017 movie? The few I caught were: Transformers sound when Grubber's megaphone unfolded. Hungry hungry hippos. And the dial-up sound during Tempest's spell call. (Joke image I made.) Are there any I missed? And did any of them get a laugh out of you?

  11. HUGE reference sheet of my mane character, Butter Pop! Hand-drawn digitally, though I did use a couple anatomy references!
  12. MLP sure does have a lot of cool references, and we already expect each new episode to have some bits of classic or pop culture hidden somewhere. But one still can find many surprising allusions that you hardly expect to see in such a show. Post them here! So, for me some of those are: Pulp Fiction reference – definitely didn’t expect to see it in MLP: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reference – a really nice one, I thought everybody forgot about that show: Grumpy Cat reference – right out of the blue. Probably, the animators thought “why the hell not?”
  13. Okay so, I've been thinking a lot on this and want to know others' opinions. Firstly, let me preface this with - I know many people perceive the fandom to be dying. They have since season 1, and we're all still here; there are plenty threads for that discussion, and it's wholly irrelevant to the topic at hand. ^^'' Long story short, we, the pony crowd, are getting referenced all over the place lately. Robot Chicken, Deadpool, that awkward Christmas movie The Night Before's Trailer #1, lots of cartoons like Gravity Falls, Power Puff Girls and Teen Titans Go, etc, etc, etc. In addition it's made headline news when a celeb like Will Shatner "comes out" as one of us, even though almost none of the celebrities themselves seem to think it matters much. So my question here is, has pony become a niche little piece of the wider pop culture or not? Is it in the middle of that? How would the 2017 movie affect that? Any evidence to add for or against my little theory?
  14. Hey all, i was just wondering if any of you have ever accidentally (or purposfully) made a MLP reference ? I ask this because yesterday when i came in for work, i accidentally said "Everypony" instead of Everyone, and i've only been watching the show for one week! Haha, please share you're stories or tactics if you have any =) Thanks. The gif below is me when i realize i made a pony reference =s Have a great day all!
  15. In this thread we will be collecting all of the references throughout the show so when we rewatch the episodes we can go "Oh hey I got that reference." To submit put it in this format: S0E00: Reference Example: S1E02: The ending ceremony is a reference to Star Wars A New Hope Please put all season 5 behind spoilers Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Season 4 Season 5 Equestria Girls Equestira Girls: Rainbow Rocks
  16. Ok. Here's how to play: 1. Look at the user above you. He/She will have posted a reference to a certain form of media (youtube, music, movies, ect.). 2. Then you have to guess what that person is referring to. 3. Then you yourself have to post a reference. It can be a line from a movie, a screenshot from a video game, anything that doesn't give away the official answer. IMPORTANT HINT: You also might want to ask a question so the user below doesn't get confused. Let me start of the game by making my post: What YouTube series is this from?
  17. I don't know where to put this, but just to be safe I'll put it in Everfree. I wanna make a comic (non-MLP/pony), and I just want a bit of help with it. Like lighting, shadows, backgrounds, perception, etc. I'm not asking anyone to draw it for me, I just want someone to give me some tips on making a comic (or I guess you can call it a manga?). If anyone needs a ref on what I mean, I'll post the comic cover that I'm working on.
  18. Often in a cartoon, a character or location of another property owned by the parent company will sometimes pop up as either a brief reference or a cameo. Cartoon Network used to love doing this, making it seem like all their shows were in the same universe at times. Has FiM done the same yet? Would you want say, Pepper Clark from LPS make a cameo, or Rainbow Dash reference Transformers directly?
  19. So a few shows such as teen titans has had a few episodes referencing mlp and even made a entire episode where they used generic ponys that were obviously a reference to a certain show. So I was thinking what shows would you like to see or imagine a mlp reference in? I'm not to sure there will ever be a time where an other show has a crossover episode with mlp but would you like to see or imagine a mlp go into another show or have generic a representation of ponys used in the plot of a episode?
  20. Here is an AAP starring Vinyl and her two buds Luna and Moonshine. Moonshine is a light-hearted, somewhat idiodic, witty, and plain ol' derpy lil' Unicorn. Her eyes are pitch black, for some reason. She also has a part-time job as Luna's personal guard. With that said, ask away!!! Moony is speaking Vinyl is speaking Luna is speaking
  21. From Watch Dogs to Transformers 4, references to MLP:FiM are almost everywhere, much to the chagrin and anger of so many people. Why would developers of various things sometimes enjoy placing references to the ponies in their works, and risk much more irritated haters of their works?
  22. Did anyone else notice that Isa's ring 'tamL' looks a lot like the elements of harmony? I have been unable to find any mention of this elsewhere on the Internet. I thought I might be seeing things but it looks so obvious. Tell me if you noticed this too.
  23. We all know MLP references alot of things in general, but what do you think when outside media (video games, T.V, comics, ect.) reference MLP or bronies? Do you like it? Do you think we need less/ more attention? Are you content with how the ponydom is portrayed by the masses? Find out next time on DragonballZ (I said it and I regret nothing)
  24. Alright, so the other day I was listening to a lecture and I kept hearing all these funny unintentional pony references. This is what happened... Guy: "So as you can see from this great plot...(something or other) MLP is very interesting" In case any of you didn't know before, MLP also stands for Master Limited Partnership and is commonly heard in the shares and investments world! Has anyone else had any encounters of unintentional My Little Pony references in their life? I have seen Winter Wrap Up sales quite a few times before too. if you can think of anything, do feel free to share!
  25. Hello everypony, My birthday is coming up, and I am expecting some money . can anybody refer me too a good store/website for Fluttershy Plushies? (Manhattan, NY) P.S. Something like this
