HI! I'm InfinityDash.
Back when I first joined the MLPFiM fandom in 2011, I started posting background music from the show to my Youtube channel. Now I don't have as much time for pony, but when I do, I like to do lots of varied pony related things, including games, music, and art!

Wanna chat? Have questions or requests? Send me a note!
I often miss notes/comments on dA (due to the lack of email notifications because apparently it's 2002 or something), so if I don't respond *please* feel free to spam me from every angle until I reply:

Tumblr (silly, in-character blog) (on indefinite hiatus):


  • Mood: I Have To Pee
  • Listening to: Friendship Games Soundtrack
  • Watching: MLP:FiM:EQG:FG
  • Eating: Snacks
  • Drinking: Sierra Nevada Torpedo

Full disclosure: I was somewhat drunk while watching the movie. I first watched Made in Manehattan, and had a drink or two while watching, then while Friendship Games was downloading I read Friends Forever #20 and had another drink... and then proceeded to have several more, or maybe it was quite a few more, over the course of this movie... so my judgement may not be spot on... anyways here goes:

Well, that sure was something. My initial impression is that, while very enjoyable, and better than EQG 1, it was still a far cry from Rainbow Rocks. And for that reason I have to admit I'll be quite a bit disappointed if this is the last EQG movie we get. It did seem to wrap up everything within the EQG universe, with Sunset finally "figuring out how magic works" in the human world, and solving an entire magical conflict on her own without Princess Twilight's help. It also felt like the whole thing came full circle (well, it didn't just "feel like it," it was shoved in our faces). Sunset Shimmer, as of RR, is very near the top, if not AT the top, of my favorite characters from the entire FiM universe. So I really hope we see her in the future, but the way this movie ended seemed like this might be it for EQG. (I'm in the minority (I think) that would love to see Sunset return to Equestria... but this movie made it seem less likely that it's ever going to happen. TBQH I would even be OK with the merging of the FiM and EQG worlds, something that I know was near blasphemous back in 2013. Really, I just REALLY like Sunset Shimmer, and feel that she's now a more "realistically" developed character than Twilight (as much as realism can be applied to the FiM/EQG universe), so basically I want to see more stories involving Sunset. I really, really do.)

Lastly, there was no cliffhanger or extra tease after the credits (there was a gag, but no tease), and the credits themselves were just standard episode credits, not the awesomeness with brand new art and music and the "I wish it wasn't over yet" feeling that we I got during the credits of RR. (Perhaps this will be different on the DVD/Blu-Ray release, but I highly doubt it... that said, the whole thing was 1hr 10 mins, compared to the 1hr 13mins of the Theatrical/DVD/Blu-Ray cut of RR. So *maybe* we'll get 3 extra minutes of movie when it comes out on Blu-Ray. But I wouldn't hold my breath (that said I already have it preordered).)

One last thing I'd like to comment on is the music. Again, I feel Rainbow Rocks excelled in this category. But, this movie has some fantastic songs AND background music/underscore. It felt very Disney-esque (which is a compliment, since I think Disney has some of the absolute best music in animation.) William Anderson and Daniel Ingram did a great job. If I had to break it down (which I will), I think the underscore (by Anderson) was *better* than Rainbow Rocks, but the actual songs (by Ingram) didn't *quite* live up to RR. Then again, it's hard to beat "Welcome to the Show." "Unleash the Magic" was fantastic though.

Overall, I dunno. I'll have to rewatch it to form a cohesive, non-drunk opinion. Nonetheless, I had a good time watching it. But I guess after the near-perfection (IMO) that was Rainbow Rocks, I couldn't help but feel that this was a bit disappointing. I could go into a thing about why they changed writers and directors for this movie, but I try to judge all MLP:FiM material without taking the writer or director into account, at least on the first run through (in fact I wish they didn't show who the writer was until the end of the episode/movie, so it would be impossible to feel any predispositions, but whatever).

All that said, I give My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Friendship Games a 7/10. (Rainbow Rocks I'd give 9/10, and EQG I'd give 5 or 6/10). Again, I may revise my opinion after re-watching this while completely sober....

Anyways, what did you think? Please feel free to point out any inaccuracies, inconsistencies, or just stupid stuff in my inebriated review logic.

Lyra and Bon Bon: ''Best Friends'' (WIP Sketch) by InfinityDash
Lyra and Bon Bon: ''Best Friends'' (WIP Sketch)
This is probably one of the saucier things I've uploaded (even though it's pretty damn tame relatively speaking)... but I wanted to try something different. And plus they are the one true ship in my opinion :P. This is obviously (yet another) work in progress/sketch, but I really want to finish this drawing, so I'll need to get a proper scan of this (this was taken with an iphone "scanner" app) and actually do the coloring and stuff. I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

I wanted to have them closer together, but the problem is ponies' heads are too damn big. So even though their faces are touching, they still have to be reaching out with their arms to hold on to each other. At first I drew Bon Bon with her hooves actually wrapped around Lyra but that resulted in comically super long arms. So yeah, to have them closer would require their faces to overlap, and I wanted both their faces visible. 

This took me an extremely long time to draw because a) I'm SUPER slow at drawing and B) I ended up erasing and re-drawing like half of this due to getting the proportions wrong in the very beginning so once I finally stopped and took a step back I realized their heads were all out of proportion with their bodies. (I probably could've loaded it into photoshop and fixed things a lot more easily but whatever).
Sunset Shimmer - Taking a Break (WIP Sketch) by InfinityDash
Sunset Shimmer - Taking a Break (WIP Sketch)
She's supposed to be reading a book, and she wasn't supposed to look so forlorn, but I didn't want to actually draw the book in front of her since I'd have to erase parts of her. (The idea was she would be holding the book with magic.). So instead I went with the "laying on the couch watching TV in Twilight's library" route. Like I always say, maybe I'll finish this someday, and draw the book and then add it in in Photoshop and color it and everything... or maybe not...
More Angel Bunny Poses (Sketch/Concept Art) by InfinityDash
More Angel Bunny Poses (Sketch/Concept Art)
A few more sketches of various poses for Angel. Still need walking and running/bounding...but walk/run cycles are so hard! Also I made his feet smaller to be a bit closer to his in-show design (he had kind of a Bugs Bunny look going on previously).

Some Angel poses for "Fluttershy's Bunny Rescue 2: Electric Boogaloo" (title not final :P). I have a pretty good idea for a game (well I dunno if it's *good*... but I think it would be entertaining) ... maybe I'll make it someday!

Happy Birthday InfinityDash!! Pinkie Jump 
Thank you for all that you made!

Thank you so much! I'm glad people are still enjoying the stuff I've made over the years, even though I haven't been nearly as active for the last 2-2.5 years or so. I still have lots of ideas and unfinished projects, so I hope to be able to release some more games, music, and (finished) art eventually! The problem is the one thing I don't have much of anymore is time. A full time job that really drains the energy out of me has me feeling unmotivated to do creative projects most of the time.

Plus my job involves staring at a computer screen all day long, so when I get home kind of the last thing I want to do is keep looking at a computer, which sucks because that's how I do almost all my creative projects: on a computer. That's why you'll notice I've been posting pencil sketches, because I like drawing, but then when I have to scan it into the computer to do the digital coloring, I keep thinking "oh, I'll do it later" then it never gets done :(

Anyways, thank you!

I'm so glad to have gotten such a reply, it's like my feelings were showing! I'm really really appreciative of all your works especielly the BGM rips and the BGM "remixes/extends" from back then (Hot Sauce Cupcakes, Pinkie Pie's Pinkie Party, Fluttershy Model Mix... I'm really grateful for those!), and also simply for being here even if you're not as active, you really make a difference! ^_^

And what you said, I can relate to it SO much! I totally feel you on that. I'm a dev professionally (developing websites and ERP and such) and I quit my last job because it was so exhausting, I couldn't do anything more when I got home, not even something outside of a computer, work was draining all of my energy and I couldn't take it anymore. Now I'm unemployed but I still have to pay my rents so I have to find a way before too long. Something else than being on a computer all day maybe... but most jobs require studies... It's such a puzzling challenge!
Anyway, just wanted to say that I can really relate to your situation. It really sucks not being able to be as creative as before just because of our job... just because we have to work... instead of doing what we really want to do.
Whatever happens, all my wishes are with you, and if I can help in any way let me know. Stand strong and do your best, try to enjoy life to the fullest still!

Your drawings are cute by the way ^_^

Lots of brohoofs and hugs!

Wow, thank you! Everything you said, it really means lot to me. Happy cry (Tears of joy) 

It is often a struggle for me... I can't count how many times in the past 2 years or so that I've opened my sketchbook, or gotten my drawing tablet, or opened an old unfinished music or game project, only to put it away or close it 10 minutes later, having done nothing (except daydreaming about what I truly WANT to create, but lack the motivation to do).

Not many people seem to understand this (at least, not many that I know IRL) and especially not my family. They think it's silly to complain that I don't have the time or energy to work on side projects or hobbies anymore (aka, the things that make me happy) now that I'm in the "real world" (aka out of college with my first "real job").

So thank you for reiterating to me that there are people who DO understand, and that my past time spent on my creative projects has not been a waste of time, which is a thought that creeps through my mind more often than I'd like to admit. I can't help but think "why did I even make this? No one cares. It has no effect on my life or anyone else's." But you help remind me that, I made Hot Sauce Cupcakes and all those other things because it made ME happy, and I wanted to share that with others. That's my goal: to once again be able to do creative projects because I *enjoy* it, without worrying about all those negative thoughts born from working in a thankless job that takes up pretty much all my time.

Hopefully I can get to that goal eventually. 

Anyways thank you again for your kind words, and I wish you the best of luck!
