Journal History


Prepare for a roller coaster folks, this is the most exciting BronyCon story yet (stick around to the end, please).
So, BronyCon was a blast this year, i got to meet alot of friends i only knew as icons and voices, but no faces. I would link y'all, but i'm in a hospital in Indiana on their wifi (more on that later).
    Thursday- My dad and I got a late start on Wednesday, as i had to work till 3 p.m that day. We drove all night from Kansas City and got into Baltimore around 11 a.m Thursday. We got checked into the hotel and went to hang with a friend before grabbing our badges. Later that night i went out and met up with a few of my online friends whom i've never met in person, and we all went to dinner at Dicks last Resort. after that, i had to split from the group and head back to the hotel so i could get a nights sleep for the convention the next day.
    Friday- What a day, what a day, what. a. day. I have never had a more busy Friday at the con. Almost every panel i wanted to see what scheduled on that day. Every hour was another panel i wanted to attend it seems, and i was on my feet the whole time. I didn't spend much time in the vendor hall, as i was always bouncing from panel to panel. The party kept going into the night, we me attending a few late night panels that ran into the early morning hours on Saturday. by around 1 a.m i was back in the hotel room and ready to sleep.
    Saturday- This is the day i spent a considerable amount of time in the vendors hall, as there were only a few panels i wanted to see, most of them being skipped.I wound up commissioning a lot of artist to draw my OC, and ones for a couple friends who couldn't make it to BronyCon. needless to say, Saturday was quite a lazy day for myself.
    Sunday- yet another lazy day. I only had two panels i attended, one of which was to meet a friend i promised to meet and forgot to do so. The other was about plushies, and was quite boring. Other then that, i spent it in vendors hall picking up commissions from Saturday and taking advantage of the fire sales going on.  We then left early so i couldn't spend what i had left at the con and so we could make it home.
    Monday morning- All hell broke loose this morning. Around 3-3:30 a.m, we were westbound on 1-70 when disaster struck. I won't go into details on what happened, but needless to say, i'm writing this in a hospital in Indiana while waiting for family to get here from Kansas City, as my dads truck is totaled. My dad and I are fine, but yeah, we're in a bit of trouble for a while, so i may have to figure out how to do commissions to help recover from this.

*Update* We made it home at around 2:30, 3:00 a.m Tuesday morning. I had to call in to work and let them know i wouldn't be there (they didn't like that a bit), and i had to contact BronyCon as it turns out, the airbag chemicals were eating a hole in my shirt.
And today, Wednesday, we're starting the long road to normal again. I went back to work, and everyone else is doing what it takes to get everything situated now that this has all happened.

I will post the sketch commissions when i get the scanned copies edited, but the other stuff will not be posted. -Railphotos.

Though be warned, if the mics on things can get out of hand, quick.

I am not that good at drawing but hand me a camera and i'll blow you away. I am really good at Railroad Photography and anything train related. Also, For those wondering why there are Ponies in my Favorites, I am a brony. If you don't know what a brony is then go Google it.
One of the reasons i have good photos is due to me taking Photo Classes in High school and due to me owning a nice Canon Rebel T5i. I have to admit, They're expensive camera's but worth every penny, But to use it for what i do, You'll need to buy a zoom lens for it but that's just a minor set back.
One thing i find my self doing alot is when ever i go view someone's account that post pictures of trains, I'll go through everything and look for fellow Railfan Brony's.

Hi, thanks for favoriting my picture.

Unfortunately, that was a commission that my client refused to pay me for.

Could you spread the word around about what happened? And please don't badmouth the commissioner, I'll be perfectly happy if I get my money's worth from someone.
Railphotos Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Bummer. I'll try spreading the word, but not sure if i can do much for that. And believe me, i would never badmouth anyone.
