Let's see if the DDoS lets up long enough for me to post this. :) After some prodding from friends, I went ahead and made a custom figure of Rodeo, using Applejack as a base. The sparkly costume effect I got with a True Navy base coat and a thin layer of turquoise glitter paint (couldn't find a darker blue glitter paint). I "styled" the hair by rubber banding it into place overnight and trimming it down, and protected it from paint with aluminum foil during the painting process.

So, this week I found out that Adam Warren is a big My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan as well, so I was inspired today to draw his character Empowered as a pony.

Rodeo is all about the ropin' and the ridin', but sometimes the ropin' gets to be a bit more than she'd like. Normally an "earth pony," in times of dire stress she grows wings and a VORRP-blasting unicorn horn.

UC Davis gets grant to develop a solid forensics basis for comparison of duct tape tears. The idea being that a tear in duct tape (used, say, to bind up a hapless superchica) is as identifiable as fingerprints or ballistics markings. So better start using scissors....
