Due to all my projects and the need to catch up on things and get commissions done so I can continue to afford food and rent, I need to slow down my posts here on Discord Whooves for a little bit.
I usually do every other day posts, which was fine back when I didn’t draw a million details all the time. Heck I used to be able to do 10 updates in a day back when I didn’t care as much about details. But now that I focus on quality more, it’s become impossible to keep up.
So, either I slow down, or I drop quality until I get everything back in order.
I hate doing this because I really do want to get the story moving, but what is about to occur after a little detour is honestly quite big and I’m not sure I’m emotionally ready to work on it. Not until I know I have everything in order.
That everything includes:
Doctor Whooves and Assistant (Trying to do a mid-June release)
Commissions (I still have 3 large ones in the making)
Bronycon [I have to keep track of a lot of people, gather funds for said people, gather funds for prints, actually DRAW those prints, and recover from a pretty heavy loss]
And less important but still something I need to do:
Lovestruck Derpy (Closing off this crossover arc and moving to a much bigger arc which will involve A LOT of characters)
Discord Whooves as usual
Zerum (Which is WAY behind right now)
Crapplejack (I keep taking way too long on updates. augh)
Once Upon a Calamity (My poor webcomic which keeps getting dragged in the dirt because of all these darned ponies)
I’m really starting to regret letting myself go crazy on the creative side, it’s really kicking me in the ass.
So… I’m just letting everyone know what’s happening and why posts aren’t every other day as of late.
It might stay that way until after Bronycon, and I’m sorry about that.
The previous auction had some errors and was cancelled. Here is the new auction with prizes that include involvement in the blog, digital art from multiple artists, a vinyl figure, and pony cards.
- GRAND PRIZE: ombreh
Grand prize winner, if you have a deviantart please give me your DA name via submit. If you don’t, you need to give me your details, I’ll need your address and the pose you want your figure to be in.
Runner ups, I need you to submit your address and which color tie Doctor you want sent to you. Also let me know if you want the box signed by me or not.
You have 1 week to claim your prizes or else I’ll have to choose the next runner ups on the list.
Hey folks, this has been an issue for me for a while now and I’ve decided I’m going to address it.
This blog has gotten huge. The story has become so much more than just ‘The Doctor sitting around answering questions bitterly in the TARDIS’. He’s answered a lot of general questions, and I’m starting to get a lot of those questions repeated in the inbox and I’d rather not have to spend photosets just recapping.
I want to focus more on the STORY, and a little less on the ASKS. I’ll still use asks, yes, but I wont be using them as a constant focus to move things along, which means there will be less chunks of boring posts of just absently sitting around and answering things, and more adventure and characters.
It was a tough decision I had to make, because it means I wont get to answer as many asks as before, but I get so many asks at this point that I have no choice but to pick and choose. And I want my story to move forward. Honestly, the ask segments really slow the story down.
I know the ask box isn’t open very often, but as you can all tell by now, I still get plenty of asks to work off of whenever I do open it, which should be sign enough to show just how many asks I get backed up all the time.
Just be attentive, the ask box opens sometimes after an update, and sometimes I’ll announce it.
But yes, expect more story, less asks from here on out.
There are currently 3 fundraising things going on to help get all the Discord Whooves team over to Bronycon and expenses to create merch for the Vendor’s Table.
Note: Donations are always welcome as well, there is a donation information link on the page
-The Winner of the Auction gets to choose or be a canon companion for the Doctor in Discord Whooves
-The Winner gets to be a temporary companion in the story, and 20 runner ups get to cameo in the background
-The winner will receive a custom figurine of Discord Whooves in a pose of their choice, and 2 runner ups will get a Doctor Whooves Vinyl figure.
Note: Only a small handful of people have bought tickets for the Discord Whooves figure. Keep in mind this is a 3D printed model, extremely durable, and can be in any pose you want.
All funding will go to Bronycon expenses, such as plane tickets, food, production of prints and buttons, and emergency funds in case any issues arise.
That’s right, you heard right. You now have a chance to be a character in Discord Whooves. The auction can be found here:

(Note: Don’t worry, for those who don’t have money I’m going to run a little contest later on to allow fan’s characters to cameo in updates)
