For those curious, here’s a timelapse of the request stream!

For now, we’ll post these as unlisted and link to them through our blog, Facebook, Patreon, etc. If people like these or don’t mind them, we’ll start posting them directly to our Youtube feed.

Just a little poll, would you guys be interested in seeing recordings of any art streams posted to our Youtube?

Edit: to go further, our content output is a little slow we admit, since animation takes a bit of time. These would just be filler, though we want to know first if they’d be generally acceptable.

The stream was actually a little quiet tonight. A chunk of our members are at San Diego Comic Con so it was quiet on our end as well as on the chat’s.

It wasn’t due to us using Picarto, was it? If Picarto proves to be problematic we can switch back to Livestream.

Anyway, this was requested by CorpDemon: they wanted to see the MLP cast with a little bit more diverse builds, fitting their species/personalities. For now, have the main 6. (We’ll plan to do the princesses as requested as well if there’s a shortage of requests in the future—this was just a good sized request so we couldn’t get to them. Good thing it was big though, since it was the only one for this month! Still, was a fairly cool request to draw.)

Reminder: Stream tomorrow at 5/8pm PST/EST!

sillyfillystudios:

We’ll be streaming some Patreon requests publicly tomorrow (Saturday) at 5/8pm PST/EST. Be sure to pop in if you wanna watch and chat with us!

As a reminder, Bronycon’s a week away! We have a panel at 6:45pm on Saturday of the con, and will be playing 3 animations, one of which will be a new one in time for Bronycon, as well as do a QnA about the animating process and what we have plans for. So, if you’re going, be sure to check that out! (And, because it’s a pony convention, the new animation will be pony related.)

Also, just to conclude the news of yesterday, we contacted Onlyfactory and resolved the issue with them, and they’ve agreed to take it down. They were very agreeable and provided us with a bit of extra information as well. As stated, the prospect of a Snowdrop plushy is kinda a sticky situation. Thanks again for the input everyone provided.

Hey all, this is a thing tonight!

By the way, thanks to all of you for your support on this.

Again, the big issues we have is that we weren’t asked or anything about this. The plushy apparently hasn’t made it to production yet, and Onlyfactory has apparently been willing to work with artists and creators before, so we’re going to contact them when their site is back up.

Another part of the issue is that we don’t want it to look like we’re advocating a bootleg site, as that might not look good to Hasbro (and they’ve been fairly lenient to us as well as the fandom as a whole).

As much as we’d like to see a more available Snowdrop plushy en masse as well, it’s sticky ground for all parties, and it’s still troubling that we weren’t asked first. For now it’s a matter of waiting for a bit more information. Thanks again for your guys’ input, advice, and support.

cooperdarkson: Is there anyway we can help with this?

We’ll see if we can contact them and ask them to take it down.

As far as fans, the simple solution is just to not support actions like this. As far as we know, Onlyfactory makes plushies based on submissions and doesn’t do a lot of background research. Ergo, part of the problem is someone tried submitting our character to them without asking us first.

While we understand people like Snowdrop, we need people to understand not to take initiatives like that without asking us first.

So, it’s come to our attention that some Chinese company by the name of Onlyfactor is starting to mass produce knock-offs, and one of their plushies produced is Snowdrop.

As the creators of Snowdrop we’re asking that you do not support this company. We never authorized them to mass produce our character and they have no right to.

We’re fine with things done on a small or personal scale (simple fanart prints, hand made plushies, etc.), but mass production is where we’ll draw lines.

Just a reminder, we’ll be doing some art and requests this weekend! The stream will be Saturday at 5/8pm PST/EST.

If you’re a $15 or higher patreon supporter, head here and you can drop in your request(s)!
