Hey guys and gals! Are you ready to read some words by one of THE premier "guy who never updates his stuff as much as other people do"?
I sure am!!!!

So I haven't said any words at any of you for, what? weeks? months? I'm not sure! As time seems to be an utter mystery to me, only popping it's non-corporeal head into my room from time to time to remind me that we're all slowly degrading meat sacks living on an infinitesimally small inconsequential ball hurdling through an infinite black void......
FUN!!!
Also I hope to actually provide you some sort of update and to remind the kind and hopeful souls who watch me with words of encouragement.
So. Update time.

I have been drawing.

End update.

Wow. That went by pretty fast. Let's try this again, only this time I'll try to elaborate.

I have been drawing a lot.

End Update.

Hmm.
That didn't seem to be too much longer. Also it was a lie, so maybe not an update so much as a wishful thinking/alternate universe where I am productive.
Let's try this one last time. Only now I'll try telling the truth, and use more than four words. And wear pants.

Probably shouldn't have said that last part.

I HAVE been drawing, but not enough as I should be doing and I say that not as the typical "I'm not drawing as fast as I want to" whiny pitch I usually employ and more the "I'm physically not drawing too much because I'm sort of getting burnt out by how long I'm taking to do this darn chapter" kind of not drawing a lot. I'm trying to finish Chapter 2 and I actually only have two or three pages to ink left, then it's back to the original page I started several weeks back to tone and finalize them to upload. I cringe when I think back to, oh LAST YEAR, where I had insane machinations to be done with the second chapter in, at the time, two months.

Indulge me for a moment and let me just complain at you. Can I do that? My dear, sweet, sweet followers in what I can only assume a dozen or so people will actually read. I know I can come off as a tad self-deprecating and I'm sure it's annoying to hear me lament the same complaints at you over and over again. The fact that when I started this, what, two years ago? Maybe more I seriously have no clue, I had aspirations to be much further along.
In the first year I completed the Prologue, the Introduction and Chapter One and even started some of Chapter Two. All in the first year! Now it seems Chapter two from beginning to end is taking four times as long and I. Don't. Like. It!
In all this time to complete Chapter Two I have neglected drawing anything else, which leaves my poor portfolio severely lacking in any original content or diverging subjects.

Now don't take all this to mean I don't want to continue drawing Fallout: Equestria, or that I'm unhappy with the current work I have now. I LOVE drawing the comic and I LOVE the work I am currently working on. I want to continue drawing FoE and I have plans to expand the comic beyond DA so it can be read in an easier fashion (though not in any physical capacity). I guess I'm only saying this because I have felt a general malaise and I needed to vent this to someone, so why not the very people who enjoy my work so much. Whether that's a good thing or not, I'm not sure, as I've lost the capacity to interact with people in a normal way.
I suppose I feel this way sometimes because I'm always comparing myself to other artists who seem to complete a new piece every week. Their portfolios are bursting with work whereas I feel mine is a bit anemic when it comes to quantity, though if you look at the amount of pages I've drawn for Foe it is actually over 100 pages thus far, so while it feels like I'm not doing anything, I have in actuality drawn quite a bit.
I guess what I'm saying is, Don't compare your work and life to somebody else, for that's a sure way to degrade the work and effort you've already put into yourself.

It's at this point in my rant that you've seen me berate, congratulate, bemoan and inflate myself to the point where you're starting to wonder if I'm having some sort manic/depressive breakdown. I assure you I'm not, the point of this entry was to update you on where I am and where the comic is currently, and while I originally only wanted to update you and give a cogent reason as to why the rest of Chapter two is taking so long, it seems it has turned into a somewhat self-searching therapy session, where I am using you as an echo chamber of my own thoughts. So, thank you. I apologize if this entry seemed somewhat self-serving or melodramatic. Yes, I'm something of a goof and many of my past writings have been barley intelligible ravings that quickly turned down nonsense avenue, so it's only a matter of time before I come back here and wax philosophical and write something of a more grounded and serious nature.

That's it for now. I'm feeling better having got that off my chest I think, so I'll take this opportunity to thank all of you again and I hope the next time I talk to all of you it's because I have just uploaded the rest of Chapter Two and I am basking in all the praise that I feed off of like some sort of psychic feel good leech.

I love all of you!

the two actually have nothing to do with each other.
I mean, sure, the dogs are pretty violent and I watched at least three of them eat the living hell out of an entire family right outside my window.
And, yes, they're bipedal and whenever they look at any non-sentient but living being, like say, that tree right outside next to that pool of family bits, it turns all black and sprouts eyes,
but none of that is why I'm currently bleeding.
No. I was just practicing some of my extreme origami and got a pretty nasty paper cut. Owie.
Hold on, let me get a band-aid...
...
Okay, so, I'm just droppin' by, sayin' hi. Lookin good with that new haircut. It really brings out that third eye you're currently growing out of your head. I mean it.
I love it, don't change a thing about you! Chapter 2 is sooooo close to being done, like relatively, soooooo close and
and....
hold on, this band aid is no good.
I'm gonna go get another one
Hold on a tic...

Can you?!!! well?!

No?

Oh.

Well anyway, I 'm back and just dropping by to make good on a thing I said earlier. I had my vacation. It was glorious and productive and over all too quickly, but in these too short two weeks I completed something that I honestly should of had years ago and it's my ARTISTS WEBSITE!!! (cue streamers) (cue *hysterical sobbing*....wait. what?) (Cue party balloons!)
For anybody interested in what I do when I'm not drawing ponies (which is probably more than I should) you can go there and see it in all it's shiny Professional Glory.
Yes, it's art that isn't ponies, and while I have no trouble saying I draw ponies and that I love them more than any grown man should love colorful cartoon horses. You'll not see a single image of a pony in there for I have two art persona's (cue sinister music and more *hysterical sobbing*. Okay wait! I really think we should check that ou- Yes M. Brons is but a mask.
A richly carved and chiseled mask that may very well be from an actual god that I pulled from the sky and with my bare hands ripped asunder his face from his mighty skull.
Whereas my "professional" art name I go by a chopped version of my real name A.P. Berg.
If you'd like to see what I spent a good deal of time on while on vacation you can check it out here: www.apbergart.com/

I also worked just a ridiculous amount of time on Fallout Equestria. In fact I have a few screen shots if you're into that sort of thing at my newly redesigned tumblr! Well, Hooooleee shit.
Here! majorbrons.tumblr.com/
which if you aren't following me you can do so there, or not, honestly that tumblr thing is something I never got into so I'm probably not updating it as much as I should, but that will also change. I have a brand new website and a freshly redesign blog and I'm just fit to split with ideas and future drawings and other great stuff that probably doesn't involve moving too much.   I'm also trying to be more interactive, perhaps in the future I can do some Livestreams again. I stopped a while ago after I did a few, not because I didn't enjoy it but because my computer was way too old to handle the amount of stuff I was trying to make it do, also I wasn't as confident in my own drawings as I am now so there's that too.

Actually. Maybe a little later I'll post what my pony sketches looked like last year compared to now in my blog. Especially when compared to some of my panels in the first dozen pages. Yee-eeesh!
Give me a hyberbolic time chamber and I would SO redraw the first half of the first chapter. Not to get too George Lucas-y an any of ya, but I can do better than THOSE! Barf! Ech! ECH!
uh oh. ECH! oooooohh. ECH! oh god!ECH it's happenECH!ing!
I'm ECH! getting bored with the sane and cohesive stucture ECH! of my sentences ECH oooooh ECCCH! and I'm falling down to *mouth smaking noise* *mouth smaking noise* ECH! a litnany of silliness ECH! oooh Aaron! Ech! (there's a reference in there, I'll leave it to YOU to figure out.)

oh. it stopped. Okay, so anyway, I have lots of things to do and as an ever aging meat sack only a limited time to do it in so I'm gonna go. I'll talk to you guys later. Maybe tell me when a good streaming time is and I'll see about getting on board with that in the future, because I'm an artist and as an artist I need to be constantly validated by my audiences and peers as my self worth is intrinsically tied to the art that I create. Hm.

Signing out my dear watchers (*Hysterical sobbing*, Okay! I can't be the only one hearing this, right?!)

That will show them! Darn stars.
Hey guys! (and girls)
I'm here, I'm alive and I'm still drawing stuff! I'll skip the whole,
"I'm sorry for taking so long. I wish I could be faster and more prolific with these pages. I'm sorry I never update this or my even more forgotten Tumblr page."
Frankly for all of you that had started following my odd, sporadic, nigh on endless self-incrimination and guilt ridden tirades so long ago knows how I work by now.
Often silly, sometimes hyperbolic and sprinkled with some faint optimism, I am a diametrically opposed individual with an unending litany of opposing ideas, BUT I am still doing what needs to be done.
It's all old hat by now. You know that. (Also, did you see all those big words I just used? I wasn't even trying. My brain seems to be a giant nerd.)

Now don't go and think the only purpose of this journal entry is to let you all know that I'm still alive and conflicted as ever. (read: whiny)
I have two things to say (mostly)

One, I don't know when the next update will happen, I'm working on the pages and I have a small sized chunk all inked and looking fresh, but I have a certain marker in my mind to which I am aiming to get to before I post the next chunk and no, I won't try and tell you how long that will take as every time I make some sort of deadline (no matter how loose) I always end up shooting right past that and into infinity (metaphorically).
Some of my favorite pages are coming up and I have a number of fun little ideas I want to put in them, so you guys just hold on to your hot pants and get ready!
Oh wait, you're all wearing your hot pants right?
Okay, good.

And B, I am extremely happy to say that I am on Vacation!!!
Note, however, that when I say vacation I don't mean that two to four month school vacation, wouldn't THAT be awesome?
For I am an old(ish) man and I have long since swept the dusty knowledge of higher learning from my shoulders long ago..............

(dusty?...shoulders...yeah, sure....that sounds like an analogy).

Anyway, I have a couple of weeks off from work (paid. heck yeah!) and I am using that time to do a number of things. One being drawing that gosh darn comic more, gosh darn it!
Sorry guys, I'm swearing like a madman! Jeez. Sorry for your ears everyone. I'll try and tone down all this colorful language. Man! So much color!!!
My point being, that in addition to some other plans I have up my sleeves, which if it goes well I will be sure to tell all of you, I am going to get plenty of time to get. Things. Done.

Alright! That's it for now my lovelies. I have some laundry that needs to be put in the dryer.
(See!? what a party animal! Man, somebody grab an extinguisher, this guy's on fire!)


Much love. Much appreciation. very sign off.

Hey... I've been gone awhile... do you have the comic packed up for download anywhere? If not I will do it manually. Not a big deal.

Hey...me too...packed up for download, eh? I'm not completely sure what that means so I'm gonna lean towards no.
If you would care to explain it to me as you would to a small exceptionally dull child then I certainly wouldn't mind exploring that option.

Wow dude. This is the coolest thing I've seen. You're one of the best artists I've seen


One question. Yo desing the guns or you have someone who desing for you?

:iconmajorbrons:
MajorBrons Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
:D thanks dude!

One answer. I design them, or more accurately I look at the design used in the fallout game then I kind of tweak the gun so it looks like it was designed with pony ergonomics in mind. Because I'm a huge nerd when it comes to small details like that.

:iconlwinged-thoughtsl:
lWinged-Thoughtsl Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Student General Artist
Your designs are quite successful but you need to change any details on ergonomics. For example, the Pump-Action Shotgun is not designed for a pony. It would be very troublesome and almost impossible to put a round in the chamber cone that handle. The position of the trigger could break teeth´s or the neck with the recoil. If it helps, I can give you a hand with the design of objects if you want. would be good practice for me in the design of objects and an honor to contribute my bit to something as great as what you're doing

MajorBrons Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks dude and yeah I've thought about recoil. It's not something I've worried too much about.
In my head I'm just pretending that there's maybe a gem or spell matrix in the gun that converts the kick back into
some kind of other force so it doesn't dislocate a pony's jaw every time a weapon like the combat shotgun is fired.
I figured I'd just leave that sort of thing to a persons imagination since that sort of technology isn't really dissected in the book.
Perhaps that technology should appear somewhere outside the gun to imply that it exists within it?
Most of our main characters use either magic or battle saddles when using their weapons anyhow so I figured if a logistical problem
arose I'd tackle it when I got there.
I can't promise that I'll use it or anything but if you want to draw me up an idea I'll definitely look at it.
Thanks again Night :D
