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.

The strain of releasing a new comic page each week has started to get a little much, and has been intruding on my real life a little lately, so I'm going to slow down my release schedule a bit, and intermix comic pages with journal entries. Which are quicker to do.

Mostly, I'm going to be putting down my thoughts on things that reader have said in the comments section, and addressing things that I didn't address very well actual comics.

OK ... Well ... I wasn't originally going to do this, but it looks like the joke for my last comic got lost in translation. Maybe the reference was a little too obscure giving that it's based on a 16 year old movie, or maybe it was just a little too left field. Or maybe my comic\script wasn't good enough to pull it of.

So here goes, here's my explanation of the Red pill\Blue Pill joke from Page 64.

In 1999, a movie was released called The Matrix. In it, the lead character (Neo) met with a mysterious stranger calling himself Morpheus. Morpheus tells Neo that the world that he is living in isn't real. It's an artificial construct called the Matrix, that is being used to enslave mankind to the whims of a overlords.

Morpheus offers Neo the chance to see leave the Matrix, and to see the world how it really is. The mechanism that he uses is the eponymous Red Pill\Blue Pill.

If Neo takes the Red Pill, he will wake up and experience the real world. If he takes the Blue Pill, he will stay asleep inside the Matrix, and will live inside the artificial world for the rest of his life.

In the movie, Neo takes the Red Pill, and finds himself in the nightmarish real world, outside of the Matrix.

In my comic, Pinkie took the Red Pill. Taking her out of the Matrix. She saw the world the way that it really was, and in doing so became Pinkamina. She then took the Blue Pill. Which put her back into the Matrix. So she became regular Pinkie again.

Thus Pinkamina either wasn't crazy at all. She was the only sane pony and it was everypony else that was crazy. Or she saw the real world and it made her crazy.

Which one it is largely depends on your own personal head canon, and your own interpretation of MLP\this comic.

The Blue Pill reversed the process.

Either way, the pills are a metaphor for seeing Equestria the way that it really is V seeing an idealized version of it. While Celestia (who maintains Equestria by raising the sun and the moon) is a proxy for the machines that maintained the Matrix.

Some of this was inspired by the fact that the show's creator put multiple subversive messages into it that turned traditional children's cartoons on their head. Particularly those aimed at girls. As emphasized by the season 1 finale, where the Grand Galloping Gala reversed many of the ideas that are promoted by companies like Disney, in order to sell pink dolls to little girls, while telling them that if they wear a petty enough dress they meet the handsome prince at the ball, get married, and live happily ever after.

Disney's version is possibly not the best message to try to sell to somebody who grew in a small town that doesn't have  handsome princes, or glittering balls. Where the only thing pink that you own probably belonged to two of your older sisters first, and where the closet they you're going to get to the Grand galloping Gala will be your high school prom. Where at least one of your friends is going to get pregnant, and which has a good chance of ending early after somebody gets drunk and starts a fight.

Not that I'm bitter, of course.

EDIT: An explanation of the Red Pill\Blue Pill joke can be found here perfectblue97.deviantart.com/j…

Before anypony reads too deeply in to things, this page is pretty much just a Red Pill\Blue Pill joke. Hint: Remember which pill is supposed to do what. There is no wider commentary on anything in particular.

If you notice any errors, please post them to my profile page, not to this page.

After this page, I'm going to dial back my pony comic release schedule, as it's simply taking up too much of my life (Plus, I want to finish the DLC on Fallout: New Vegas before I buy Fallout 4). So there will be fewer pages released for a while at least.

EDIT: YAY EQQD www.equestriadaily.com/2015/07…

After weeks and weeks of promising, here's the first page in my Pinkie arc. She's fresh out of the mental institution, and raring to see her friend Twilight.

Be prepared for some Pinkie craziness, some Hannibal Lecter craziness, and lots and lots of toilet humor (Because it requires absolutely no originality or creativity).

I'm going to do a couple of Pinkie pages, and then I'm going to have to drop the production schedule a little. Doing one page per week is getting too much for me, as I'm a slow at drawing, and need to spend a little time away from my computer screen.

If you notice any errors, please post them to my profile page, not to this page.

MLP: FIM - Without Magic Part 42 by PerfectBlue97
MLP: FIM - Without Magic Part 42
This is the fourth and lastpage of my Princess Luna Back-fill arc.

This arc largely exists to provide an explanation to a specific question that I've often been asked "Why isn't Luna doing more to help Twilight".

I'm hoping that this will make Luna's interaction with Twilight in page 43 more poignant. In essance, Luna is choosing Twilight over Celestia.

It took me ages to get the color gradiant for frame 4 the way that I wanted. I tired about 5-6 different methods to get the border between the two gradients the way that I wanted.

All pages after this are being renumbered.
