Un-Put-Down-able! :FIM title cards series by Jowybean Un-Put-Down-able! :FIM title cards series by Jowybean
"I hate to admit it to myself, and would really hate to admit it to my friends, but... I love this story! I, I... I love reading! I'm an egghead."

No you’re not hallucinating :? or seeing things :wow: this is a brand new title card that took me all day to complete. :faint:
I apologize for the stupidly long wait for another of these :nuu:. But I was stuck on ideas for some of the episodes and felt my skills in digital painting at the time were not quite ready for them also I have been busy with my new job and commissions so there’s that for a counter argument.

But good news, I have at least four planed cards that may be done before our fourth season of pony starts have to see.

Now I need to work on the process piece showing the stage-by-stage completion because i said i would do it in my last title card submission :doh: .I think you all should see the development of these pieces.

MLP title cards because the creative team behind the show deserves it. :love: :hug:

I want to make one for every episode with its own quirky style that best suits that particular episode. So far I have managed almost all of season one and bits of season 2 and 3.

At some point I am going to go back and edit the older cards to be up to par with the standard of my newer ones because some of the designs and finishes really bug me especially Sleepless in Ponyville. :x

I know I repeat myself a lot in descriptions but that’s how Jowy :roll:s

and always shall..... sometimes :?

Until next deviation LATERS Bronies :peace:

This title card would surely get some fans (who have not seen the episode) interested of what finally made Rainbow Dash read a book. The Episode "Read it and weep" got me an idea for a fan fic. The first idea what a title card for that episode I though is, Rainbow Dash is on a bed with a broken wing. a book is attempting to force Rainbow Dash Curiosity into reading the book as u can see her resisting it (sweating.) or forever remind bore. The shadow of the villain would also get the fans wondering what motives does he have and who is the protagonist of the story Rainbow is reading.

Well, I will say this, had I never seen this episode before, this would have really gotten me excited for it. Hell, if I had never seen any of the show before, I feel like it still would at least have aroused my curiosity. I guess that's to say it does it's job. Just as any title card or opening credits is supposed to, it readied the audience for a show, and makes a dozen promises of things to come.

It's really a nice throwback to the old fashioned title cards cartoon shows used to have. It takes a scene from the episode, presents it in a way that stands out, doesn't give to much away, and leaves an impression on the audience so that if they have seen it before they can say, "Oh, I remember this one."

Ok, what do I not like about this? Well, why is there two arrows flying toward the evil dude whose name escapes me? It makes sense to have the one flying toward past him and toward Daring, but why are two about to hit the unknown evil dude?
Also, Daring's flank looks very spherical. Almost detached from her body spherical. That must have hurt.
In all seriousness, I'm nitpicking. For what it is, you did a good job. The biggest problem I have with it is that it fits in so well with your other title cards. There's noting big or gripping for it to stand out among the others.
Still, capital work.


---Actually I can't get enough of her expression. "HOOOOOOOOOOLY SHEEEEEEET!" That's really funny.

This title card does a great job capturing what it's like whenever you're super invested in a good book with the scenes from the story unfolding in front of Rainbow Dash. You're doing great work with this project, and I definitely can't wait to see the rest.

that episode Read it and weep is one of my favorite episodes because it revolved around my favorite character the awesome and adorable Rainbow Dash and the episode was awesome also because it had the 1st appearance of Daring Do and I hope there's a season 5 episode of mlp fim where it has Rainbow Dash kindly and heartwarmingly read a bedtime story to Scootaloo and that story will be one of the books of Daring Do. what book should Rainbow Dash read Daring Do and the Griffons Goblet or Daring Do and the Razor of Dreams or a new story called Daring Do and the Pyramid of Light and the story will have Daring Do going to the Pyramid of Light to stop evil Cyborg Mummies and evil golem robots that resemble Pyramid Robots and Egyptian Gods? And who should write this episode Megan McCarthty, M.A. Larson or Dave Polsky?

I thought Daring Do's legs were a hair dryer at first glance.
