Feel free to suggest things you’d like to see! Certain characters (no OCs; there are other ways), objects, ideas, etc.
Right now, I’m planning on adding that historical twist, and also detailing some world-building stuff like the rebellion, music, and propaganda.
And yes, there will be more Spitfire. The existence of act one point five is kind of her fault (you’ll see).
Oh thank you!!
Well hmm, for that last post, I put a ton more hours into painting Twi than usual! In fact, I totally just painted over the original outline because to be honest, it was quite bad (anyone want to see it? hint: answer is no, oh gods no).
And I’ve decided to start painting backgrounds in Photoshop to use some really cool brushes.
(Topic swtich) I will hopefully get part 3 of the thing in the factory finished by next weekend, and then we can officially begin act one point five, which, I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about it, mostly because of a really awesome twist I’ll be putting to this blog’s so-called cyberpunk sub-genre.
Twi: You’ll all be sorry soon ahAHAHAHA!
// muffled apologies of sobbing ponies in the background
(((Response to post where everypony’s crying or something.)))
MOD: I made a little art with Tracy in your universe, spying on Cybi! I’ll make a proper thank you later! <3
((( Oh my goodness this is really beautiful just look at the colors what do you mean this isn’t the proper thank you!? I mean what a fine piece of art!! Like I honestly saw this about an hour ago and didn’t immediately post it because I was too busy imploding with squees and other inhuman gleeful screeches!If you are not following this amazing blog by the time you finish reading this, then a portal will open beneath your feet/hooves/claws/etc. and you will be whisked away to the Cybiverse and forcibly ejected onto Twi’s doorstep just as she steamrolls out plastered in high-tech cyberware and dripping in argon and toting some kind of gargantuan nuclear weapon with a ridiculously complicated name just aching to be tested out on the first thing she sees. Which will probably be you. )))

RUNRUNRUN. E S C A P E .
the factory breathes.
and above ALL—
WATCH FOR THE «eyes»
(((Oh my gosh what even Cybi got 80 new followers in the last week?? That’s really weird. So on the 20th or whatever Cybi’ll be a year old with like 2725 followers. Hm okay I should draw something special for that.)))
part 1/3 of <FILE: ESCAPE THE FACTORY> »
(((JUST A TINY UPDATE, I PROMISED MYSELF. Anyway, here are the one-sided crossover blogs featured:
Okay, so to prove to myself I’m going to keep updating this, here is a WIP. A really small version, because I don’t want you to read the text, and I’m too lazy to just hide the text layers. I usually don’t like posting WIPs here (and this might be the only time I ever have, if I’m not wrong) but it’s taking forever, and I forgot the second reason so I might as well.
I’ll be doing writing only for side posts and weird questions. (I decide what makes a question weird.)
Hm uh I’m not sure what it is I’m typing right now so before I start making sense, I have a question! How often would you like updates (if at all I guess??)
(((Oh hey look who’s still alive. I promise I am not completely ignoring this blog and things.
Anyway, here’s Nexus for hier-of-v0id for I think being second place for something. Hope you like it!)))
(((Oops I accidentally went on another cybiatus. Again. But anyway, I totally haven’t abandoned this blog, see? Act one point five concept art stuff. Also going to go ahead and clear the inbox.
I had fun drawing this, actually. Hope you like it
(((Really late to show this one off, but that makes it all the better! I love the coloring, especially! Been for-e-ver since I used colored pencils.
Also, gonna tack on a mod post here. So just about everyone’s wondering whatever became of the “help wanted, writer needed” thing, yes? Well I picked two (2), and everyone I haven’t contacted (there were more applicants than I expected! Like about 800% more than expected!) I will later contact about doing guest writing.
And one more thing. Act one is over. Please welcome act one point five. It’s not a restart, it’s a retelling. All events that have occurred thus far are 100% canon. This is merely a new way of looking at it. Some details may change, but in general, everything shall make more sense and be… like tighter, more cohesive. So just to reiterate, I’ll start from the “beginning” (really it’s more like in medias res) and draw everything, but in a new light. You’ll see. Oh I will also wipe Cybi’s inbox after posting the last few pieces of fanart. I got about 100 old questions saved in a file though.)))
Griffon: “No, I’m afraid I must attend to her alone. We’ll take the train to Baltimare. But I won’t be departing there. The next time we meet shall be within the domain of the griffons. Goodbye.”
(((No no no I accidentally forgot Rainbow’s cyber-wings! Let’s just say that she’s hallucinating/you’re hallucinating/it was all a dream/Fluttershy’s drugging little animals!! Wait. Spoilers.)))
(((The 2k+ follower giveaway thing part one.
(((Sketch taken from Amanda (Spittfireart).
I really, sin-cere-ly hope she doesn’t mind! Because I looked at that incredible sketch and thought “oh what a shame to leave it uncolored…”)))

Act I Scene 1 - The Reunion
I wanted to make a title card for this act, and figured I should use it as an opportunity thank the followers who have got me this far. I’ve been working on this little blog for half a year now, and it’s really gratifying to know that 283 people think my efforts so far merit a follow.
I hope that I can justify your apparent faith in me, and while I often fear that I’m massively overreaching myself, it has always been my intention to stay outside of my comfort zone and produce the best art and story that I feel I can. I owe that to all of you, and to myself.

I’m pretty sure I have forgotten or omitted some people who really should be in this. Please forgive me, I’ve been working on this for over a week to fit in as many ponies (and other Equestrian citizens) as I could. Sadly, 283 is a bit beyond my current abilities.

(((Thanks for including Cybi! That is some amazing perspective considering how many ponies you had to draw.
You should all really consider giving a follow—if not for the interesting art style, then for the intriguing story.)))
