I’ve been getting a lot of asks about what they’re kids might look like so here’s the ones I created. Though my designs aren’t as good as @beach-city-mystery-girl‘s Sunny Days or @doglover502‘s Milky Way! You wouldn’t believe how long it took to make Periwinkle and the unnamed foal.
so we were in the queue to meet Daniel Portman and he wanted to change his shirt and put on some deodorant so he thought it would be a good idea to do it under the table and we all almost died // i honestly can’t even explain how funny Daniel is and how welcoming and kind he was when we met him, he instantly made us feel at ease and took the time to chat to us, do yourself a favour and just watch if just for his delightful scottish accent
So it’s Mother’s Day over here…it’d be good to commemorate such a day with a gif like this dontcha think?
Lemme give some real talk about some of Day Dreaming Derpy’s inspirations, especially in its unique perspective on experience in video games.
There aren’t really many games where you get to play as a parent, excluding the titles like the Last of Us or TellTale’s Walking Dead where the player is put into a parental position, but there aren’t many games dealing exclusively about the nitty-gritty of parenthood (in this case, motherhood). And rightly so, gameplay that depends solely on the reliance of the raising of a child may not always mesh with, say, an RPG experience where you level up and fight monsters. It all depends on the kind of experience you want to give the player.
The concept of Day Dreaming Derpy didn’t start out with Derpy’s relationship with her daughter, Dinky as a core element. In fact, the idea of going through ponies’ dreams largely stemmed from the fanfics on Fimfiction, and its users’ amazing variety of interpretations of the show’s lore, sometimes through the eyes of somepony most unlikely to be in an empowered position. It was there, that the idea of a unique perspective that most audiences would not immediately understand or relate to, would convey some of the most profound and enduring lessons that anyone can use to walk away with a better understanding of life and all its aspects.
And I believe that Derpy’s wayward story as a mother raising a child on her own is something worth sharing.
Day #6: The little one (suggested by @
) ((this was one of my fav things so faaaarrrr~ I like the idea of current partners gettig along with their bf/gf’s children~ Luna loves to talk about how clumsy and silly Starswirl was before becoming fucking gandalf, Dinky loves hearing true stories and Derpy is missing her body so content to have found the perfect princess~))
