This week we have a lot to update on so let’s get down to it!
Our spinoff series Equestrian City: Side Streets is progressing nicely. I have high hope’s we’ll be ready to release story one “A Bed of Your Own Making” this week!
The regular series episode 10 is in the middle of proofreading and re-editing and I’ve had our editing staff prioritize the side project for now to get the new short story out. No worries though hopefully we’ll get a new addition to the editing team. Any inquires can be sent via twitter or dm on the site you’re reading this on! Always looking for help!
Our eternally awesome Wubcake has expressed interest in helping us get the fanfic dramatic reading off the ground! Hopefully we can get a taste of things when she brings the newest short story to life!
Our Patreon is up and very lonely but that’s to be expected as we’re obscure! Don’t forget to at least glance over the idea of supporting us! Being able to provide help and support is vital to help us keep rolling. I finance most of this from my own pocket and it’s becoming a bit overwhelming financially.
We’ve got a new piece of concept art in from the spectacular LegendarySpider! Some of you may know him from dA or tumblr. Perhaps even derpibooru? He’s a fine artist and a gem to have around the server when were all brainstorming ideas. Couldn’t do a lot of this without him! I know Joanna appreciates his help too! The piece in question is Sunset’s primary ranged weapon when not tapping into her powers! As she was inspired by Batman no less fitting is it that she get a sunsetarang! Not the final name but you get the idea!
Speaking of Joanna she’s hard at work on the Shadowstrike / Rainbow Dash reference sheet. A slave to her own perfection she’s meticulously trying to replicate the shows look while adding her own flair to it!
Our Discord server is open to any and all interested in sharing our crazy space. We discuss the project and we have regular zany conversations when we get sleepy. So if you’re a fan and want to hang out and maybe even help, drop me a line!
Finally let me remind anyone reading this that as massive as this project is it’s always and forever shall be a fan made project. As such we don’t knowingly tend to profit from any of this but we do have real life interfere at times. That being said we appreciate hearing from each and everyone of you and don’t be afraid to drop a line or a post!
So we’re just off the heels of BronyCon (Never been to one sadly) and we find out it’s the last one next year. This set off a bit of a panic in the back of my mind, the mentality being that if the fandom loses the main drive to collect and carry on, then we may lose fanficiton readers as well. I was told I was being silly, so onwards and sideways as Antonie would say.
We’re working hard to get Episode 10’s polish and edits done, but our fiery polish and proofreader is getting carpal tunnel practically on how fast she’s been moving on it! I’m looking for someone who can both polish the words AND proofread, and is willing to work with me. It’s a slow process.
I’m happy to announce we have DSHooves & Wubcake onboard to help us do the occasional voicing and such! Both are talented and welcome indeed to the project! 😀
We’ve nearly got the kinks worked out of the Equestrian City Discord server, so stay tuned for that! There’s been some internal discussion about a side series for Equestrian City, so we can focus on some of the side characters without overly boring some of you all xD
Here’s the equivalent of a teaser trailer for the next episode! 😀
Hello and welcome to another update from Equestrian City!
The release of episode 9 still fresh in our minds, episode 10 is well into the planning stages and work continues to generate outlines with the help of both Proofreaders and Co-Author Alisia.
InvisibleInkdoodles has given us another update showing progress on the newest round of character sheets we have for the project! I can’t wait to share more when I can, for those that haven’t seen the first set (Sunset and Pinkie) the link is here! They turned out super well and are indeed worth the price paid!
We’ve begun work on making a patreon possibly, for those unaware I personally front all the cost for the project and hopefully won’t have to shoulder the full burden if we get the patreon up and running, but there’s still alot to consider first.
The Discord server is still in test mode being invite only at the moment. We’re hoping Rivet Rose can get a bot implemented so we can open up to the general public who’s interested!
The wikipedia I created is still…alive, but slow to be built, mainly because it’s just me and I’m very low on my skills for coding pages.
The most exciting news however is we’ve recently entered into negotiations with the long thought poofed DSHooves! Yes she’s alive well and kicking! She’s got herself a Patreon herself, check it out!
Working with the artist on these was a real treat! I enjoyed the back and forth I had with them and they were always a consummate professional. It’s a handful of artists I work with that I can count on for both quality and consistency, and this one is among them! We’ve been working on this for a while and it’s just one of many things we’ve got in the forge in terms of projects, and so far, along with the rest of the staff, I can say I’m excited! And I’m the project lead! 😛 We at Equestrian City welcome InvisibleInkDoodles as our Lead Artist and can’t wait for the rest of the world to see what this project can do with quality like this and fans like all of you out there!
Welcome to Equestrian City! We’ve revamped our website and it now completely is devoted to our growing project! Stay a while and look over the bare bones we have and keep checking back! Better yet, follow us?
That being said, we just published the final draft of the first episode. Nothing changed story wise, but it was discussed that over time, it has shown it’s age, so with the help of my new co-author, we went over it and agreed on where changes were needed and implemented them! Found “Fanfiction” or by clicking here!
The Menu bar has been reworked and should give you access to the fiction on site, the FimFiction mirrors we have and the dA one’s also. This will most likely be the first to be updated along with FimFiction and always with a small post regarding it.
Importantly the Wiki is sealed off for editing as we try to get the structure in place, so it’s small but growing as the staff and I discuss ideas and jot them down for our growing cast!
Expect more art to be showcased as well and of course this is all a Fan Created Universe and in no way affiliated with Hasbro or it’s subsidiaries! 🙂
Be sure to follow us on Twitter or stop by daily! We’re working on setting up a Discord as well. 😉
