The Lich and Pinkie Pie

I like to draw characters from shows that I watch with my kids. Here are the Lich (of Adventure Time) and Pinkie Pie (of My Little Pony Equestria Girls).


  1. I didn't know you liked those two cartoons too. I thought I was the only metalhead liking them.

  2. Oh, man, AT is the best thing ever, and there's a lot of metal stuff in it (like Billy's exploits). But you're right, I don't hear anything about it from other metalheads, and I never hear anything about metal when I'm poking around in Internet places related to Ooo.

    I think there's a lot of overlap between bronies and metalheads, to be honest, but the people in the middle of that Venn diagram aren't likely to tell their metalhead friends about it. For me, it balances me out from the darkness of the metal. I've seen a running theme in at least two cartoons my son watches (Teen Titans Go and The Amazing World of Gumball) where dark, brooding characters love a colorful show about pony friendship. I'm pretty sure that's a thing.

    1. Glad to see a modern adult metalhead balance the darkness of metal with some happiness and love. You know, I am a teenager who has been a metalhead since 2013, and so far, I have never met any adult metalheads that are "balanced" other than BreadGod and you.

      Also, kinda out of topic, but have you reviewed at least one Indonesian metal album? :D

    2. I don't think I have reviewed an Indonesian band.

      On the subject of balance, I'm not sure I have anything profound to say. For me, that comfort with light and happy things came with age. When I was 20 I wanted everything to be dark, even humor. I think it was part of my identity. I've gradually come to realize my identity doesn't lie in being a metalhead. I don't really belong to any particular subculture, and looking back I understand I never did. (I wonder how many people really do.) Now I just like what I like, and do what I do.
