Anonymous: Apparently there is also a Cipher owl in addition to a Cipher cat and all of a sudden I think of Cipher owlcat.

(Because you know Bill would have to be a winged owlcat.)

Everyone else has been making “random animal with a passive-aggressive/asshole comment on a banner with flowers” pictures, and I felt left out.
Can I sit at the Tumblr “cool kids” table now?
I’m also selling this as a sticker in order to make a buck off of gullible teenage girls.

135 episodes, and these two chucklefucks still haven’t grasped the concept of not fucking with things in the park.

Anonymous: Let me get my Steve Irwin suit out for a moment... *ahem* Now here's a real treat, lads - a glimpse of the majestic Northern Tenafly Viper in its nat'rl habitat! Now, this specimen's very jumpy, she's had a lot of critters tryin' ta start brushfires in her territory, but she saves most of her venom for troublemakers - s'long as ya stay calm and don't go romping 'round like a twat, she'll not hurt you. See, lookit that, ain't she a 'beaut!

Pffft.

That just made me imagine Steve Irwin coming upon the owlcat as it’s just sitting on a stump, nibbling on a slice of cheese.

Since I knew there was no way I could top last year’s valentines, I thought I’d make a Chrysalis one just for fun, but make it a little more “monstrous”.  However, for some reason, I felt compelled to make it a humanoid version (an updated version of this), as opposed to a bugpony.
I decided to pull the design a little bit away from the insectoid/alien look, and a bit more towards some type of fae.  I envision her hair having a texture like the membrane of a leaf (even though I’m not entirely sure how that would work).  I’m not really sold on her neck at the moment, and might do something similar to how I did the neck on this (still one of my favorite things I’ve ever done).  I made the horn more like that of a markhor goat, which I think is what the stylization in her canon design is actually meant to imply.  And yes - I’m still sticking with the bifurcated mouth, because it’s delightfully horrifying.
But yeah…basically, I ended up working on something entirely different than I had originally planned.

Anonymous: Who drew your OC pony and does she have a name and backstory?

I first drew the Viperpone after someone asked me if I had an OC pony, which I hadn’t ever really thought of, since I don’t tend to make OC characters.  So, I quick drew one out just for the hell of it.  She isn’t so much an “OC” as just a representation of myself I use regarding pony-related matters.  I don’t know if you’d call that a “ponysona” then, since I’m not too familiar with the terminology.

I kind of explained the cutie mark here.  Being that she’s essentially just a pony version of myself, and because she wouldn’t at all fit in with the canon universe, I’ve never really called her anything except “Viperpone”.

omny87: To be honest; whenever I read people's posts I always imagine their avatar talking, so even if I knew what your real face looked like I'd still see you as an owlcat.

bumblebeanytuna: save me from the snow viperpone i'm drowning

But it’s freezing outside…

Also, the snow does not listen to me, or it would have gone away by now.

Anonymous: Owlcat privilege is not having your prey notice you until you strike. Everytime _I_ try to catch a groundhog, just so I can threaten it into not seeing it's shadow here in a few days, the fuckers dive into their holes. (Okay, they're ground squirrels, but close enough.) Owlcats never have to worry about this.

Well, domestic owlcats usually don’t have to worry about prey at all.

We tend to get our food the easy way.

Anonymous: So I just read through about 30 pages of your debate on PP and it was intense. With the account that I need to be productive elsewhere, I wanted to tell you that you're awesome for being able to just stand up and make a point. Not just a point, but A point, with effective reasoning too. Anyway, now that I'm officially tired of that God-awful subject (maybe you are too?), how are you doing right now?

I got my hair cut, so I’m not all fluffy anymore!
