'Cause my past is not today. Or something like that.
I worked on the obscure references people almost as much as I have worked on the rest of the video. Almost. But it was fun and I like it. 10/10 I will do something like this again.
I had something sweet to bite after I published the video :D
I love designing new outfits for minidolls. I just do. I like making videos, but what gets me excited the most is figuring out how to pull something off. And this video was full of such challenges.
I originally wanted to do a Disney Princess Halloween video, but then lightning stroke me: it should be a My Little Pony Nightmare Night video. And that was it - I had to make it. And to make it, the My Little Pony Equestria Girls video had to be done too. So I got to work and the last two videos are the result (I'm not counting Sunset Shimmers video 'cause it's still not done).
I'm pleased with what I've done and it really gave the channel a big boost. Like an all-time-high-and-then-some boost. If it weren't for the head lice I would be extremely happy right now.
I already know what the next video is going to be - Minidolls vs. Minifigures: Head On. I just need to plan it and do it. Easy peasy. I know it won't be a big hit, but it needs to be done and who better to make it than me?
... are Pinkie Pie's feet not touching the ground?
The process of painting these started many months ago. Since then I changed both the way I paint and my character design multiple times. None of that helped me with making these sooner.
Why does Twilight Sparkle have a darker skin tone? Why do the others have a lighter one? The decision for that can be traced back to the planning of this video. I wanted to minimize the painting involved, AND I thought it would be silly to translate all of the girl's skin colors into only one. That is how I decided that Twilight and Sunset Shimmer will have a darker skin tone.
I have ambitious plans for the rest of the year and I really really want to make them happen. So I should better get to it! After I prepare today's lunch, that is.
I have found a way to share LEGO related news from my personal life that is easy to film & edit and is not boring.
Yay for me! :D
But in all seriousness, I have struggled with this question for quite some time now. I thought about doing a speed painting video, but that would be a pain(t) to film. I wanted to do an unboxing video of my bricklink purchases, but I hate unboxing videos with a passion. I was searching for a way to include my daughter's builds into my videos, but everything I thought of was too .. something.
I believe this to be the perfect mix of everything. And I intend to do a video like this every month. We'll see how long it lasts :)
