Hi There world of cyberspace! My name is Nick James, but some of you may know me as "Stratolicious" here on Deviantart, or other other misc web sites. Today i wish to express my plans for the upcoming year 3 as a brony artist. I wish to expand my horizons and attempt to release a series of game review videos on youtube. Now, I know what your all thinking... that this is old hat or i already subscribed to 100's of those already, why have another? Well, I choose to make this step for I want to go back to roots and make videos for fun again. I have plenty of stories from past and present when it comes to games and I wish to share them with you in the style of acting and animating. I wish to compose a series that focuses not only on just the gameplay or graphics, but with history and personal memories. The series will be released around Thanksgiving 2013 and will feature games from the past, going as far back as NES. I will also be playing Pony modded ROMS and reviewing them from todays perspective, so keep an eye out for links later on.
As far as Deviantart goes, I will continue to post base and wallpaper art for the world to use, as well as ponyfy existing album art, which I have kept a list of what to do next. As far as art in general is concerned, Im also planning a new Tumblr series to replace "Ask Azul". The Tumblr will feature My little filly, Melonburst, whom will possibly have another name by the time some new stories are released. This wil be story driven as a First pony perspective about her life as a single fowl living on a limited income with her mother whom is single. It will be a mixture of sad and silly, explaining how dispite the many trial of living on a fixed income, they manage to stay close and stay happy. Think about this series as a "My Little Dashie" but in the eyes of the little filly instead. Stories are currently being written, and will be released sometime January 2014.
Finally, I wish to talk about music. As you know, my Brony name, cutie mark, and creative angst, all come from music, particually rock n roll. I have made countless statements saying I would release a full album of pony music since September 2011. However, with recent financial decisions, I've desided to postpone any attempt at making such an album until Im secure. I will not be at any conventions until Ohayocon 2014 and even then it will be up in the air. However, I may post one take songs from an acoustic guitar on a crappy recording device, as I have not posted any recordings on here since July 2012. Until I start to make some extra money, I will start to record again.
Im uber excited to spread my wings (figuratively of course) and create some magic (not figuratively) for this year. Heres to it!
