Read the title?  Here's a hint; its not a good experience.

So one week ago I uploaded a video to youtube entitled; 'Why Five Nights at Freddy's ISN'T scary'.  Watch the video here; [link] In just under a week, the video now has almost 20,000 views.  Usually it takes a month for one of my videos to reach that many.  Now, I don't make videos just for views or subs so this isn't really that big a deal, and I'm not saying this to show off.  But it is a fact you need to know so you understand how much of an impact the comments and emails I've been getting because of this 10 minute long video.  Before I do, lets talk about my experience with the FNAF fandom.

Just before making this video I was at a convention in Dundee Scotland, Dee Con, where I had a vendor table. The Con had a LOT of cosplayers, and a lot of FNAF fans too.  They saw my FNAF fan art on the table and we got chatting.  Nice guys.  Here's the artwork in question;  FNAF fan art along with the blurb underneath;

"I don't find it scary.  Jump scares aside, this is a great game and I do like it's mechanics, however I don't understand why people find it so scary.
Perhaps because I worked in a Automata museum for a year so I don't find puppets and marrionettes and animatronics all that scary.  I've seen anitique clockwork puppets that have parts of their faces missing, eyes hanging by loose threads and fingers dangling from their sockets.  Of course the older the puppet, the more deteriorated they can be.  In other words I've seen the REAL creepy puppets and these guys...just don't scare me."

Did I say in any of that that I don't LIKE the game?  No.  Would I have made fan art if I didn't like the game?  No.  I may not find it scary, but that doesn't mean I don't like the game or think it's a bad game.  See what I'm getting at?

After meeting FNAF fans at the con I decided to make a video about the game and my experience with them.  I made a video talking about my experience of the game and explained why I don't find it scary.  
Watch the video here; [link]  I never ONCE said its a bad game, or that I don't like it (in fact, I said quite the opposite.)  I don't like jump scares.  Jump scares are cheap tricks to make you feel scared.  They don't make a game scary.  You know what makes a game scary?  Suspense and atmosphere.  This game HAS that.  It just doesn't have enough of it to make it scary for me.  I don't consider myself a fan (and quite frankly I don't want to be in a fandom that's going to treat me so badly...I have the star trek fandom for that. :p)

I decided to make a video on the subject because this game is EVERYWHERE and I just don't understand why.  The game's lore has been expanded upon by the fandom and made it into something more than it actually is, and that is pretty awesome.  But when someone like me who is not in the fandom comes along, judges it as a game and ignores the lore that the fans invented and only focus on the lore actually conveyed in the game and says; 'I don't find it scary.' it's like I've said; 'Scot Cawthorn should die' or something.  I mean...it's like if I said; 'I don't like MLP.' to some fans that means; 'I hate Lauren Faust.'  Seriously guys, can we not talk about stuff WITHOUT turning it into a hate match?  (I love MLP btw, but MLP fans are just as guilty of pulling this crap.)  

Guys, I've worked in the video game industry, I know what makes a game.  It doesn't matter if the guy worked on it on his own or did it for charity or whatever (although that is pretty bad ass)  that doesn't make the game scary, does it?  I just wished people actually watch the video, listen to what I say instead of leaping and sending me ludicrous messages such as this;

  

I've received far worse than this, BELIEVE me.  This is tame compared to some of the message I received.  I am shocked at how certain members of the FNAF fandom have treated me so far.  (MLP fans are just as guilty of doing this btw) I mean I have received death threats from people in the FNAF fandom, usually because they see my MLP stuff and think I'm from a rival fandom.  Um...ok then.  Apparently playing a video game with animatronic animals is more grown up than watching a cartoon with pastel coloured ponies.  Its ridiculous.  Serves me right I guess for making the video in the first place.

So in conclusion;  The FNAF game series is awesome.  The fandom?  Not so much.  (with the exception of the guys and gals I met at the Con.  You guys rocked.)

Maybe next I'll make a video called "Why Steven Universe DOESN'T rock" just to see what happens.  (I won't.  Steven Universe DOES rock.  I'm just trying to prove a point.)


I have decided to start doing speed draw videos again, but with a difference;  I will be offering speed draws for commissions I take.  In other words, when you order a commission you can have the option of a print and a speed draw video for your commission piece.  This option will be added very soon and details will be posted here once I have figured out cost ect as these videos take a long time to make.  Before this is added to the catalog though I need to practice making them again and figure out the best way for me, and what the best option is for the customer.  Some speed draws can be over thirty minutes long, and as much as I love seeing the whole process squished into that time, I'd much rather have a shorter video with some of the boring and tedius work edited out. So this speed draw is just over 4 minutes long with a lot of stuff edited out. However, I wanted to ask you guys.  

Using the example provided, (and ignoring the size of the logo as that was a mistake during recording which won't be happening in next speed draw videos) is this speed draw video too long or too short to you?

Would this be something you would be interested in seeing if you were to order a commission?

Should these be on a separate channel?

Any feed back is highly appreciated.  Thanks for the support!

Stay Creative!
Maniac, My Little Pony Villain by Mad--Munchkin
Maniac, My Little Pony Villain
Here is Mane- iac, a villain in MLP that seems to be overlooked a lot.

Maybe its because she's a blatant Joker clone, or that she's a one off character that (sadly) won't be returning to the show.  Either way, she's a fun character, and she's fun to draw.

Hi Miss Mad Munchkin. I love your Youtube review videos (and the other stuff) you provide for your fans, and I also love your art work witch I love to pieces.

May I just ask you a few questions?

What program do you recommend to draw with witch is easy to use and not to complex to understand, because I currently use MS Paint, but I want to take a step away, but I don't want to go to something to complex and forces me to go back to MS paint. (I would like to change to make my work look moor professional.)

And second, how much do your commissions cost. Because I'm interested highly in them, and what commissions do you do?

ps, you are my all time favourite British reviewer based on anything, ever, and one of my two favourite female MLP reviewers (the other being ILoveKim)

Hello Mad--Munchkin;
  I'm a big fan of your work, I have just learned that you had a deviant art profile. I have been off of deviant my self for some time. I have been wanting to talk to you about your oc/pony sona, I love how you have made her, but I been getting things ready to working on a gift for you, but I could never find the right what do you call it, where it has all the right colors you had used and body markings too? well I looked your oc up but every pitcher I seen your oc colors change. so after this long rambling I was wanting to know if there was a pitcher or video you would recommend so I could get the gift right and close to in colors for you.

p.s. sorry for the long comment, I get rambling when nervous and sorry for miss spellings.

The colours and markings do change from time to time.  Don't worry about it.  Thank you for making something based on Maddy though.  I look forward to seeing it. :)

Hiya!! This is Kittypaw2335 from YouTube (a recent subscriber) and I ove your videos! I used to be afraid to let my reativity flow, but after watching some of your videos, I realized that art is a way of expressing not more than just talent; its a state of mind that lets you do what you love in life. I love drawing- it's my life!! I can't thank you and your videos enough.


Signed,
Kitty
