Castin’ call

At the risk of sounding like a broken record record, is there anyone out there who can help make Southern Belle AJ? Ideally I’d like some more help colouring the panels, even if you just do the flat colours* and leave the shading to me, anything you can do to share the workload would help immensely in keeping updates to once a day. Sadly with my current health problems and the increasing complexity of my lineart I’m having to spend longer on each panel and having less time to do it.

If you’re interested PM me or email me at atowncalledbedlam@gmail.com

* Yes, I spell colour with a U since I’m English. Tumblr loves to rub its spellcheck in my face but then again it flags “Brony” so I ignore it.

Have a Flumbershy!
Also, there is now a CHRONO button on the right hand side of the page —->
clicking it allows you to travel back in time and read the ENTIRE Southern Belle AJ blog from the very beginning, including all of the off-topic and pre-meta story stuff. Thanks to that anon who asked me for it, I wouldn’t have known it was a possibility otherwise, although I’m still puzzled as to why people remain anon when theyre asking for legitimate things :/
Anyways, on the topic of that Fluttershy pic, you’re looking at the next generation of Southern Belle variants. I’ve also retired the old meta-story archive button, thanks once again to ask-scifresh-pony for providing it, but as we move on to new styles we unfortunately have to say goodbye to the old.

Hi once again everypony! Dil here with the latest on Southern Belle AJ behind-the-scenes.

So recently I’ve been sick as a dog with a real beast of a head-cold that set off my asthma and left me half deaf. I hate being ill, seriously. You may have noticed, however, that there has been no interruption in our daily posts, that’s because I always queue up at least a week’s worth of posts in advance incase sh*t like this happens, so chalk one up to being prepared!

That being said, I want to thank my friends and fellow artists coldstorm-the-sly and askdukepony for their help colouring panels whilst ive been doing battle with the forces of ill health, go give them some love!

So in the upcoming panels you can expect some new storytelling techniques and a bit of character development. There’s still a great deal of work being put in by us to deliver the best comic we can, there’s a lot of drafting and critique, redrafting and much book-reading.

I’m going to do something new and give some of you a sneak-peek at the next scene. PLEASE DO NOT look if you don’t want spoilers, this is just a draft sketch I’ve put together to get feedback, and for those of you interested in my methods and the story in general, it could be fun. To avoid anyone seeing it without meaning to I’ll post it on my personal blog atowncalledbedlam. Feel free to let me know what you think of it!

The next meta-story will be the most ambitious yet (naturally) with new settings, themes, techniques and characters (oh yes, original characters will be showcased alongside all our favorites). I hope that you’ll all come along for the ride, and help us make 2014 a memorable year for MLP fancomics.

As always, any and all donations and commissions would be a great help, just click the buttons on the right-hand side of the page ->

So far we’ve raised a grand total of $5, I’d like to see if we can encourage people to part with something to help cover the costs involved in making a webcomic, aside from the software necessary to draw them, theres expensive hardware, art books and reference books, physical art supplies and all the coffee necessary to marathon sketching, drafting, digital lineart, inking, colouring and publishing.

I truly appreciate everyone who takes the time to help make Southern Belle AJ a possibility, and a huge thank-you to the fan who took the time to write me that nice message. You know who you are, you really helped me feel like I’m achieving what I set out to do, this is a labor of love in appreciation of the brony culture, and feeling like I’m making a difference makes it all worthwhile.
