Merry Christmas everyone! I hope the holidays are treating all of you well.
Its great to hang out with your friends and family at this time. Its one of the few opportunities you can get nowadays due everyone being busy with work, school etc. So as much as possible, I try not to waste this time. So far, its been great. I'm having a great time with my friends and my family is also great to have around. Sometimes I wish, these moments can last forever. It sad to think that soon I'll be leaving them to pursue my dreams in a different country. And if there is one thing I'm bad at, its keeping in touch with others.
In other news, I'm going to have my birthday soon. Woot! Yeah I'm now going to be *bleep* years old! Yay for me!
Today I just want to comment on this reply
"Is it possible that someone working on the show likes Derpy just as much as /co/, and decided to have some fun?"
And I'd like to reply Yes we all do. However, we never called her Derpy. That was all you /co/ hehehe. She was actually was called Stoneface, Bubbles/bubblehead (due to her cutie mark) or Ditzy. But Derpy is quite appropriate. Its funny how similar /co/ and the MLP animation team are at times. But its not only Derpy and the main characters we love. Even the incidental background characters get some love. Its funny how even characters that seem insignificant can garner so much love from us without even saying a word. Maybe its the way they look or maybe its because we see them all the time in the background. Or maybe they don't really have a personality and being artist, we can project certain qualities in them without hurting the story of the show. Some artist at the office "claimed" a few of these ponies and named them themselves. Like for instance, there is a certain background pony that has orange hair and carrots as her cutie mark. I love her design and I animated her a number of times that she grew on me. I affectionately named this character Carrot Top. Coincidentally, /co/ also named this same character Carrot Top. I even wrote a background story for her and such. Hmmm there's an idea. Maybe I should draw a human version for all the incidental characters and give them background stories. Well look forward to that guys! If you guys have any name suggestions or background ideas, please note me. Also please provide a pic of the character. Note, this is not an OC thing. Its just giving identity to the incidental characters similar to Derpy. Oh and give me a reason why you named them in such a way.
Well that's all for now. Hope everyone have a fantastic holiday! And also... Winter Wrap up! Winter Wrap up! lol
