Well, season 2 has finally come to a close,  and I'm sitting here and looking back on it all, with a few thoughts I want to share.

I just want to say thank you (again) to everyone that watched and enjoyed the MLP season finale this weekend.  There were lots of hard nights and long hours from all of us on the DHX crew to make it the best would possibly could.  Of course, there are things that are always going to be imperfect, but overall from what I gather, it seemed well-received.

I was also shocked at how many people recognized my OC pony that made a small cameo in this weekend's episode.  As a blanket response to a lot of the same questions I've been getting all weekend: No, I did not voice her and I'm unsure as to who did.  I would assume just one of the regular VA's.  She was put in kind of last minute.  The artist who drew her in the storyboard, made her look like my pony (just a coincidence), and after seeing it, I simply asked Ridd our Art Director if he could make it mine.  I wasn't sure if it was posible, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.  That's all there is to the story.  There was no "sneaking" about it.  There's not really a way TO "sneak" characters into a show, as every pony has to be built and designed in Flash first.  

One last and big thanks to everyone for all the kind words and support over the last few years (for my pony work AND original art).  I'm so glad to be a part of the MLP crew and to have the chance to talk and interact with fans.  Your love and support is overwhelming and keeps me smiling everyday.  Being a part of this has introduced me to so many wonderful and talented artists from across the board and for that I will always be grateful.  Your continued and constant stream of kind words and support never fall on deaf ears.

Looking forward to the future, and I hope everyone is just as excited as I am to see what's to come.

After more listening, I'm pretty sure that Wild Fire (or is it Wildfire?) was voiced by Tabitha. We already know Lucky was voiced by Andrew Francis.

Doesn't really matter: You deserved to be in the show for your hardwork you put into this show.

I guess that answers my question about the colt! XD

It was super cute, though!

The show is simply amazing. The work that you and the ENTIRE crew and cast do is such great quality, it's easy to see everyone puts their hearts into it. <3

Thanks, Sabrina! We love what you and the team do to make us all happy and we appreciate it. Take a well-deserved break for us, will ya?!

My top guesses for Wild Fire's voice are Cathy Weseluck, Nicole Oliver, or Tabitha St. Germain. I'd really like to know for sure, though!

wow, DA just got a whole lot cooler :D At first I was skeptical about MLPFM and thought it would probably suck. But after the first show I watched I was like "OMG this is awesome" X3 I love all of the characters personalities and just the artwork and style of the show. It's amazing ^^

I'm sure you get tons of messages like that all the time :D

Do you guys ever think of throwing a fan contest?
ronvarone Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2012
I remember asking you in the IRC if we would see your OC in the show. (Right around when the first episode aired).
Your response was "Maybe"
glad you made it true.

Was great to see Wild Fire in the episode. I paused at that scene to be sure it was her and thought O.O "OMG, I KNOW that pony!" :giggle:
I also was really happy that Luna was included in the finale. "Did I miss anything?" was priceless.
Wistolf Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012   Digital Artist
This was an amazing season. I admit, I was worried that like with most other shows, the quality would steadily get worse.. but no, it's gotten better!
Sooo excited for season 3!! Any ideas when about we can expect it to air?

P.S. I loved seeing your pony in the finale. I spazzed everywhere.

You'll always have support and enthusiasm from me, that I can tell you right now!! :D
For me you are a little more important probably than the regular fan or watcher, you have been part of my inspiration and encouragement to take on Animation myself, and I am very grateful that you have shared your thoughts with me on that. :)
I was back at Uni this week for the first week of the second term (minus Wednesday, which was Anzac Day), and I just have to tell you this: I'm having a great time! :D

The people in my life that play some significance in the direction of my life are always special - and I am honoured that you are one. :cuddle:

Other than that, bring on the future!! :dummy:

well received? yeah.. yeah i guess...
if by "well received" you mean the fans totally went insane over how awesome and amazing it was, then yes. it was "well received"

I shat bricks and my jaw just DROPPED when I saw her in that episode!
I'm still shocked, lmao.

Still, me like everyone else really want to thank you all for an amazing season! I bought and finally caught the finale late last night and enjoyed it immensely, esp the songs!

Thank you guys and hope for more soon! :D :hug:

Honest to God, my friend nearly fell off his chair when your OC pony appeared on screen. It was hilarious! XD

Will we be seeing your handiwork in season 3?

Anyway, have a great day! :D

The only thing I can think of is this :icontwilightclapplz: You guys at DHX did an amazing work! You guys settled a new record of most watched and best season finale of a tv show (I don't know the details though, but something like that). Thank you very much for your hard work!! And I am pretty sure when I speak for all my fellow Bronies/Pegasisters that bring it on with season 3!! And enjoy your well deserved rest!! :iconbrohoofplz:

I'm really sorry to say this, but I didn't see your pony. I actually thought only Lauren Faust had a DeviantART account. I am truly sorry about this, but can you please tell me where she was? I'm really sorry. I'll probably just go watch the episodes again on Youtube. If I do, I'll make sure to look for your pony.
Sibsy Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Professional Filmographer
she's in the scene where Cadence uses the love spell on a couple who are arguing in an outside cafe.

I forgot to mention in my last comment that I hope that the Gates of Tartarus makes an appearance in the show. They mentioned it in episode 20, and I think it would be awesome if they used it.

Looking forward to seeing what crazy stuff you and the rest of the crew come up with next season. Thoroughly enjoyed season 2 so I can't wait to see how they handle the next. Good luck out there, and have fun.
YazzoB Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012   General Artist
Epic may be an overused word, but that's exactly what the season finale was.

Of all the things in the episode, seeing your character there probably surprised me more than anything. I was literally sitting there with my mouth hanging open. :D

Just wanna say, thank you and the rest of the crew SO much for all you do. Season 2 was amazing, and I bet the show will just continue to get better in season 3, especially since you guys really seem to have hit your stride.

Hey Sibsy, come tutti gli altri che hanno fatto dei commentari nel tuo journal devo congratularti per il tuo (vostro) meraviglioso lavoro in questa seconda stagione di MLP FiM, che stata veramente geniale, e il finale fu assolutamente spettacolare.

Ma posso farti una domanda? Poich c' un piccolo elemento dell'ultimo episodio che sta causando un p' di confusione tra i fans, e penso che sia possibile che tu, essendo una degli "storyboard artists", sarai capace di rispondere e mettere fine alla confusione. La scena che ha causato confusione una delle ultime dell'episodio, nella quale si vedono gli occhi di Vinyl Scratch, il pony DJ, e come si vedono da lontano ed una scena notturna, non molto chiaro di che colore siano. Alcuni dicono che sono viola, mentre altri dicono che sono rossi ma sembrano pi scuri perche di notte. Probabilmente tu gia sai questo, ma a tantissime persone gli piace(va) disegnare e imaginare a Vinyl con gli occhi rossi, e quella la ragione principale per la quale insistono sul fatto che siano di quel colore. Beh, penso che la domanda sia chiara... Allora, saprei dirci qual' il vero colore dei suoi occhi?

And sorry about writing this message in Italian, but I thought it would be ok since you said you are Italian, right?

E buona fortuna con i tuoi lavori futuri! :D Sono anche sicuro che la terza stagione sar geniale! Saluti!

It was pretty cool to sit on the couch and watch the episode with a few friends, and then suddenly saying 'Hey! I know that pony!'
ArrJaySketch Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Heehee. I shouted "SIBSY!" at the screen when your OC appeared in a room full of bronies. :D

I must give everyone at DHX, The Hub, and Hasbro a very big and heart-felt thank you for making this show possible, and for all the love, care and hard work that goes into this show. Through it all, never doubt that we fans truly appreciate everyone's hard work!

I still think it's amazing and awesome that we fans get to interact with people who make the show. I love that everyone we've interacted with who works on the show has been absolutely amazing.

Isn't that amazing? I love how many new friendships have came about because of the show.

Also, on behalf of my coworkers and friends, thanks for your work on Ed, Edd & Eddy, too! :D

Here's to Season 3 and (hopefully) Season 4!!
BillyTheShark Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Season 2 has been AMAZING. I'm so excited for Season 3. Thank you (and everybody else) for all your hard work put into this fantastic show! And thank you for connecting with fans - it's awesome how you share art and information and nice words with all of us.
Sleepingcobrox Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist
I feel that you have contributed much for this show, and I have nothing but thanks for all that you have done.

One thing I've been noticing from this season are the facial expressions and though it has the same art style there is a distinguishable difference as how how the faces were drawn.

It is very hard to describe how the facial expressions actually looked liked compared to season 1 which I believe there is a difference that's hard to ignore.

I am well aware that it took more then 1 storyboard artist to create the season 2 facial expressions you would not be able to notice in season 1 but that said I thank you for all your contributions for this show. I feel that you have brought much charm that this show could have asked for.

I was a big fan of Ed Edd and Eddy and have very much enjoyed that show as well. I'm bringing this up because I can understand how your experience with Ed Edd and Eddy has helped paid off for your very busy schedule to storyboard MLPFiM.

I'm not sure if this has been answered before and you may not be allowed to answer it or you may not have the time to answer this question and I can understand, but did you work on the facial expressions of the villain of the pony finale? Or was there someone else I should be thanking for instead for that villain?

Once again thanks for all you have done and I wish you success in your career. You earned it

Season wrap up, season wrap uuuuuuup!~♪ sorry couldn't resist...
Amazing season though. If I could personally thank each and every single person who has worked on MLP:FiM, I would. I really have enjoyed it, really. All I can say is that I can't wait for the next season :D
CHCHcartoons Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012
Sibs, let me just say that I enjoyed the season finally. While the Season 2 parter premier was utter garbage and almost made me hate the show, the 2 parter finally saved it. I loved Shinning Armor, he's like the big brother I always wanted: Supportive, nice, caring, and a best friend. Sadly I have 3 older sisters, which one of the acts almost A LOT like Twilight Sparkle. Loves to study, and gets stressed out. And while season 2 wasn't as good as season 1, and while some episodes besides Return of Harmony were bad (like the Mysterious Mare Do Well), there was still something to enjoy. Like the Flim Flam brothers song, the Smile Song, Rhinox being in the episode, and of course your character being in the show. Is she like the pony version of you? If so, can you help me make a pony version of me? But I think the best think about the series, and the season finally is the we finally get an evil villain. I freaking love Chrysalis. Unlike Discord (who is the biggest mistake in MLP:FiM history), she was evil, threatening, powerful, intimidating, written well, and she actually kicked ass. I would like to see more of her. In fact more villains should be like her. We need more villains in the MLP:FiM universe who are evil and menacing. While you can't get villains like Tirek, Grogar, and Katrina from the G1 series to be in the show, you could create characters who were influenced from them. You should see if Smooze can make an appearance. I made a character of him [link] [link] and I think you guys should use him. Best part, he'll be voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.

I think one of the reasons why I almost hated the show, was when Fluttershy became cruel in the first two episodes and didn't apologize to anyone when she became normal. That always bothered me. Fluttershy is my favorite character, and I hate seeing her mean. But in the episode Putting your Hoof Down, not only did she apologized but she felt guilty as well. Now that is the Fluttershy I know and love (not in the way you ate thinking).

All in all, this season had a few hits and a few misses. I think it's because Lauren Faust isn't part of the show anymore. But I honestly think that season 3 will be better than the first two. I hope we get to see, a Derpy episode, Spike learns more about his past and purpose besides being useless, more depth on Luna struggling with her inner demons (please make an episode on that I BEG of you), and of course Fluttershy being a more kinder creature than anything else in this god awful earth. All in all thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon, and hope we can talk more about this. What can I say? I love talking to people who make cartoons. I know I've said this before but just in case you didn't read it, I owe you a huge apology. :iconimsorryplz:

I think it was neat to see Season 2 come to a close, after all. It did end on a good note. Your art led me to the show, and you are one talented artist Sibsy.

Like others, I saw your OC pony character in the finale. I nearly did a wild take when I saw it. Best of luck to you and to the MLP crew for season 3.

One question, according to your history of storyboarding. You storyboarded on Ed Edd n Eddy. Is anyone else from AKA on the show? I have heard that there are a few people from AKA working on MLP.
