About me.

I'm not especially artistic, but I appreciate the art of others in a kind of "I wish that I could do that" kind of way. I dabble in sketching using plain old pencil on paper, but my main these days Digital. A little photo editing, and a little Photoshop.

I work extensively in Daz Studio\Poser. You can see a couple of the renders that I have done on this page, but most of what I do goes elsewhere. This page is mostly here for my web comic. It's cheap and cheerful, and not my best work by any stretch of the imagination, but I guess that's what happens when you need 6 or 7 renders per page. It's a little bit about Alien Abduction, and a lot about how much high school and small towns can suck if you aren't one of the pod people.

More to the point. I'm a committed non conformist. I don't do "peer pressure", and I hate being told what to do or what to think, and I have a personal beef with anything that calls itself "mainstream". Be it art, culture or science. Particularly when said "Mainstream" spends more time putting down people who disagree with it through cheap shots and ridicule, than it does defending its perspective through evidence and or reasoned argument.

Although I resemble it sometimes, I'd hesitate to call myself a Goth. The Goth scene has become somewhat commercialized over the last 10 years, to the point that stores like Hot Topic are ripping off the Goth look and are selling it as a novelty lifestyle choice called "Emo". Which is what you might get if Goth were brought out by a greeting card company. Emo is just another way of conforming while pretending that you aren't.

Yes, I am thin and pale, yes I do dress in flowing black clothes with a semi-occult on theme (Not that being a Goth has anything to do with the occult, I hasten to add), and no I don't have anything pieced. Not not a nipple, not an eyebrow, not even an ear. That would be too much like conforming for me.

MLP: FiM - Without Magic Part 87 by PerfectBlue97
MLP: FiM - Without Magic Part 87
Over the last year I've had a lot of comments from people asking why Luna hasn't intervened in the ongoing Twilight\Celestia saga. Of course, as the writer, I've know exactly why, but I haven't been able to say too much as I didn't want to introduce spoilers. Let's just say, it's been hard getting to this page without explaining things directly. Particularly when some of the people commenting have been somewhat aggressive in their criticism of Luna\the way that I'm portraying Luna.

Well, we're here now, so I can give an explanation.

There are two reasons why Luna hasn't intervened directly. Either to turn Twilight back, or to take Celestia to task over how much Twilight is suffering.

The first of these reasons was covered all the way back on pages 38 - 44. Luna felt that she was being forced to choose between her loyalty to Twilight and her loyalty to her sister, and that either choice could potentially lead her to become Nightmare Moon again.

The second of these reasons is covered here. In simple terms, Luna knows that Twilight has invested a lot in finding out what makes her special outside of magic, and if Celestia\Luna were to turn her back into a Unicorn before she discovered it, Twilight would believe that she had failed in the task, and that she had been restored because Celestia thought that she couldn't couldn't do it.

Given the way that Twilight looks up to Celestia as a mentor, and how she constantly seeks her approval, Twilight would likely see failing in a task that Celestia had set her as being tantamount to failing Celestia herself.

If you notice any errors\mistakes here, please report them on my profile page. It looks silly having comments pointing out errors still hanging around long after I've corrected them.

Luna's eyes were a total pain to draw. Particularly keeping them looking consistent between frames. Don't expect me to start drawing everypony's eyes like this.

If you're wondering what the reference to Custard in Applejack's letter is about, it's something that was originally scripted to happen about 3 pages before this (One of the trigger events to Spike writing to Celestia), but which is now happening afterwards because of the new page (because I was getting tired of people complaining about Celestia not getting involved and brought that page forward a couple of months).

MLP: FiM - Without Magic Part 86 by PerfectBlue97
MLP: FiM - Without Magic Part 86
For everybody who still doesn't understand why Luna hasn't intervened, she has two main reasons. The first is explained during pages 38 - 44, the second is given on the next page.

You might notice a few differences\continuity issues for the next few pages. This page, in fact this entire arc, was originally intended to be much further on in the comic, but so many readers have complained that Celestia isn't taking an active enough role\isn't realizing how much Twilight is suffering, so I have brought this part of the story forward.

I've had a shocking number of readers reacting really angrily to Celestia, and the fact that she was allowing Twilight to go it alone, rather than actively intervening, and I've often had to explain that Celestia isn't doing anything A) Because the comic isn't about Celestia doing things, it's about Twilight discovering who she is outside of magic and I need to keep Celestia out of it to give Twilight room to do this, and B) Because Celestia simply doesn't know how badly Twilight has been effected. Twilight has been keeping it from Celestia, and her letters haven't let on how things really are.

This has become something of a distraction of late. So I'm moving Celestia's arc forward by several months to try to get people off of my back about her not changing Twilight back, and why Luna isn't forcing the issue.

I story boarded and scripted some of these pages months in advance, so there may be some continuity errors as I'm having to move quite a few pages forward, and to create a number of filler\exposition that weren't required in the original script.

This is just a brief journal entry to provide an explanation to two of the most commonly asked questions about my web Comic MLP: FiM - Without Magic: "where is Celestia", and "why isn't she doing anything to help Twilight"?

In order to answer these two questions it's important to understand that this comic isn't about Princess Celestia. In fact she wasn't originally intended to be in it at all, beyond her appearance on the first page, and again right at the end. This is a comic bout Twilight, and her how she starts to question whether magic something that she "is" or something that she "does".

It's also important to understand that while the comic is being written over a long period of time (I started it in 2012, and it's now 2016), most of the events are happening over a very short period. Pages 1-13 cover less than 24 hours. Pages 14 - 23 also cover less than 24 hours. So, 1/3 of the total pages of this comic happen on two consecutive days. In fact, it's not until page 45 that we start to experience any real jumps in time.

Pinkie's incarceration in a mental institution also covers very little time. This mirrors real life. She's taken in on page 13, she see's a psychiatrist, and then she's ejected a day or two later with pretty much nothing done to resolve her problems.

Originally, the comic was suppose to cover only a few days worth of time in total. She would right her letter to Celestia right at the beginning, have an adventure, and then the comic would end with her writing her next letter to Celestia a week later.

There was no room in the comic to have much Celestia. She would essentially set events in motion, and then Twilight would explain what this taught her at the end. Like a single episode of the show.

As the comic went on, it became clear that it was going to be much longer than I had originally planned. It would be unusual for the normally punctual Twilight not to write to Celestia, so I had her writ ea few letter. My intent was that Celestia would be nothing more than an observer.

In the show, it's unlikely that Celestia would leave Twilight suffering. She would probably turn Twilight back if she knew, so I decided to keep Celestia ignorant of Twilight's troubles. Essentially, Twilight is writing to her telling her that everything is OK. Even though it isn't.

She isn't cruel, or stupid, she's ignorant of how much she is suffering and thinks that Twilight is having "an educational adventure", because that's how Twilight wants it to be.

As the story has become longer and longer, I've had to add more Celestia scenes in, as Twilight from the show would write to Celestia regularly. These are really only cameos and there is no wider purpose other than to show the passage of time and to keep in line with Twilight's habit of writing to Celestia on a regular basis.

It's also important to understand that Celestia didn't intend for for Twilight to view things the way that she did. She thought that this would be a short assignment - "Find out what makes you special outside of magic", end of assignment. Twilight over thought it.

It's like when a teacher sets an assignment that's supposed to be a 200 word book report, but a student over analyses what the teacher wants and writes a 200 page essay.

The Elation of Magic by PerfectBlue97
The Elation of Magic
The elation of magic.

I started this for a scene on my web comic, but added in some extra details as I'm trying to broaden my artistic range form just doing simple vectors.

This isn't bad given that I'm not very practiced at it, though the background sucks.

Vectored in Inkscape, detail added in Clip Studio.

I'm still struggling to get my own comic moving right now. I'm not going to be able to finish the latest page this weekend so I'm behind schedule. I spent too long on that one picture of Twilight, when I should have kept it simple and did more pictures instead.

Can I keep this one in mind for the future?
