Pinkie has been very very busy and asked YOU to help her out with throwing this party to celebrate Inksy moving to Ponyville (And my 200+ subsribers! and 10k pageviews!)
SO! In general do your depiction of that party! Be sure to include Inksy, your ponysona, and a few others!
NOTE: You may interpret the ponies in anthro, furry or human form as well, just be sure to leave some pony ears, cutie mark, and tails!
For some inspiration here is a little on the life of Inksy and her friends!

It's not a birthday without RAAAMBLES.Heeeey folks.It's not a birthday without RAAAMBLES.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, thanks for all the birthday well-wishing. Veritable.. mountains of well-wishing. Though I'd be just as content postponing my birthday until next year. And then maybe the year after that, and after that..
A year older and a year wiser. Well, the latter is debatable. But definitely a year older! This year has been a wild, satisfying, disappointing, exciting one. It marks my first total year as a freelancer, which has been simultaneously one of the most liberating and terrifying career leaps I've ever made. Thankfully, the studio I've ended up working with for the entire year has been a very welcoming one. The workload can be immense, but outside of being paid, there are few rewards greater than seeing your work animated in a game after toiling on it for hours. Getting to visit Barcelona was another fantastic perk.
I really can't complain at all about work, this year. I've worked with the guys from Wayforward, Vigil, did a bit of here-and-there for my old stu

1. First of all, have an idea! There's no point in writing if you don't know what you're going to write about, whether it's fanfiction, original fiction, etc. Trust me, I've had my share of stories that crashed and burned because I didn't plan it out. Now I'm not saying you need to write an entire plot diagram illustrating every little thing that happens, just something simple: a beginning, middle, and end. Your beginning should introduce your characters, the setting, the main conflict.&

Make love handles, not war!With the passage of another Memorial Day . . . let's honor those who serve.Make love handles, not war!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Make love handles, not war!!
What we can all do to end the war in Afghanistan -- and wars everywhere -- is support a soldier boy or girl in getting too plump to any longer be fit enough for the service.
If you know someone who is in the service, once they get back in the states, or before they get a chance to go overseas again, make it your private mission to cook for them and feed them, fatten them up a little. Our husbands, our wives, parents, kids, friends and lovers do not deserve to die in a meaningless war.
Let's help them get nice and plump, so they can stay safe here at home.
In the 60s, the flowerchildren said, "Make love, not war!"
Now, we will shout, "Make love handles, not war!"
Already, the armed forces are having a difficult time recruiting, but if we can fatten up those who might wish to sign up, we can put an end to this useless war... Or at least, we can end the war for those we love tho

How to gain - My guide to the big lifeOvertime I have regularly been asked the best method to gain. And I love being asked this, but I think a stock answer would be brilliant… so how to gain…How to gain - My guide to the big life5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Right, it’s not necessarily about WHAT you eat (although that obviously helps) but more HOW you eat. You are going to gain more if you eat throughout the day and that is what to do. At every opportunity eat something. I’m going to give a timetable in a sec for an average school day and an average work day.
Now eat constantly and eat lots. Eat till you are about to pop! Never think you can’t eat. If you want to, do it! Eat till you can’t move. Then when you can move, get up and eat! At mealtimes eat two or three portions, eat on your way to eating. If you are going out for a meal make sure you eat before you go, on your way there and on your way back. If you are cooking make sure you have a pile that you are working though whilst you cook. Don’t stop eating. Fill up your table with food and eat

New Year's Resolution -- the Glutton's PledgeWhile others may be pledging to lose weight, let us try to rise from our couches and beds and table chairs each day and repeat....New Year's Resolution -- the Glutton's Pledge3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Glutton's Pledge
I, __________, promise to eat all I want, of whatever I want, whenever I want.
I will eat when I'm sad to cheer myself up.
I will eat when I'm happy for the sheer joy of it.
I will learn to enjoy eating even when I'm full.
My belly will grow and proudly proclaim my devotion.
My appetite will become greedier, allowing me to eat even more.
I will rejoice when people criticize my weight, for they confirm my progress.
I will rejoice when people criticize my appetite, for they confirm my confidence.
I will gain and not be ashamed; on the contrary, I will feast in celebration.
I will eat joyfully and bear my new pounds cheerfully, so as to be an inspiration to others.
I will eat.
(If you want to become a glutton, say this pledge daily, and repeat it whenever you have difficulties)
For 2013, let us
*IMPORTANT* Derpy Hooves is in DANGER!If you are not aware, Hasbro has put pressure on WeLoveFine (The company that makes all the brony merchandise) to remove all Derpy Hooves related material, and the episode "The Last Roundup" (Where Derpy's name became canon) is now missing from iTunes*IMPORTANT* Derpy Hooves is in DANGER!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why? Because some low-life assholes deemed the name Derpy "offensive". It's unfortunately true, here's proof http://derpyhoovesnews.com/hasbro-pressuring-welovefine-to-remove-derpy-merchandise/
Political correctness has gone out of fucking hand I swear. You can't make a joke about ANYTHING with someone getting offended. So that's what this about? That the name "Derpy" is offensive to mentally disabled people? It's safe to say that is complete BULLSHIT.
I'm sorry but, I was born mentally autistic and the name "Derpy" doesn't offend me at all. I actually prefer "Derpy" to "Ditzy". And I'm sure that other autistic people are not offended by the name Derpy.
Hasbro should know that removing all Derpy related items will not solve problems, it w
Save Derpy HoovesI'm not usually one to advertise this sort of thing. It's not my place to try and tell people what I think they should do, but this is just so ridiculous in my opinion, that it needs to be stopped if not just because of the sheer moronic and incorrect nature of it.Save Derpy Hooves3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For clarification, in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which I watch, there is a character named Derpy, named so because of her characteristic cross-eyed look that was originally an animation error. She gained a large fanbase over time, and became known by the creators as Derpy as well, finally getting a speaking role and confirmation of her name in episode 14 of season 2.
You can see Derpy here in a 50 second clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBUVF6yyQNc
For those who don't know, the word "Derp" refers to a mistake that, in retrospect, seems painfully obvious and should never have been made. Case in point, her cross-eyed look and ditzy nature
Unfortunately, someone decided to complain about the name, claiming that Der

This month we've got a relatively easy and fun theme that I'm sure all of you will be drawing anyway:

Let me draw your OC - And the winner is...Update 2: The results are in!Let me draw your OC - And the winner is...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I checked out all your submissions and in the end I couldn't decide between two OCs that I really liked. So I asked RatofDrawn for his opinion (without telling him my choices) and he came up with the exact same result!
So this is why there will be two winners for this little competition (ladies first):
:iconTawnyFox6512: and :iconRayhiros:
SorbetBerry's OC Brushfire excited both RatofDrawn and me with the stunning and beautiful color scheme. I really love the soft coat color and the fiery mane. I'm usually not a big fan of accessories, but her hairbands really give the whole design a nice touch.
Rayhiros provided me with 3 OCs to choose from and while all his designs appeal to my taste, Banana Split amazed me the most. The whole character seems so fitting. Ponies in clothes and with contrasting hair colors are a tricky thing but the vest and shirt really suit him and the hair looks

Dice Dragon Facebook Giveaway!Hey guys! Been a while since I last posted. Life has been rather busy with the baby, so I've not sculpted much since the last sale. It will take a bit for me to get enough for another etsy sale... I'm guessing I'll have them more like once a month from now on, if I manage my time really well. I like to have close to 20 or so items for the sales, and I'm not really close to that at all yetDice Dragon Facebook Giveaway!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Happy ending for a straySo the stray cattle dog named Tasha (see previous 2 journals) went home today just before noon.Happy ending for a stray3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As the owner approached her she was as skittish as ever, but then she began to stare, and came up to the door of the kennel. He opened the kennel and sat down and the dog crawled over and put her head in his lap.
By the time they left she was calmly standing up on him seeking attention, her tail went from tucked to relaxed, and she jumped right into the car as if she had done so only yesterday.
After 2 years of being missing, likely running feral, she remembered him.
A phone call hours later brought more good news.
His wife cried upon seeing the dog, so grateful to have her back.
Their toy poodle, whom Tasha grew up with, at first did not seem to know her but then it's tail began to wag and the little dog got all happy... the poodle remembered her!
Their new dog, a cattle dog mix they rescued long after Tasha went missing, seems to be doing well, not exactly friends but not enemies, which in
