Breeding Rules 2013 Basic Information:Breeding Rules 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
All Nordanners have 10 breedings only
The only way to access more breedings, is through earning them through the Kaaring System.
Nordanners may only breed once they are officially registered and age appropriate.
To learn how to register your horse, click here.
The minimum breeding age is 5 years.
Selling breeding slots in any way/shape/form before they are accessible is forbidden and can result in consequences.
— Selling Excellent Blood (200 kaaring) slots before the horse has been confirmed the status.
— Selling slots to foal genos, foal designs, or unborn foals.
— Selling slots to horses not registered, or not transferred.
The Nordanner group does not enforce private breeding rules.
Only in such circumstances as broken group rules, payment not made, or special cases, will the group
ARTISTS PLZ READ (esp.mangaartists)I just need to get out there,ARTISTS PLZ READ (esp.mangaartists)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
it's driving me nuts how many artists
give up doing art because of people or their situation.
So I wanna tell you my story, growing up and becoming an artist.
The reason I'm writing this out is because I really wanna be able to inspire, even if I'm not the greatest of artists.
I know for a fact, manga artists have much more hardship trying to become famous than painters and sculptor's etc.
Because there's just some idiots out there that think all anime is Sailer Moon, and who LOVES to control your life more than other people. Parents, friends w/e
My parents were very against the idea of me doing manga in the future, being famous and stuff.
It's childish, you're gonna be poor, you're gonna ruin your studies. My teachers weren't any better.
My real-life friends were either against, unsupportive or ignorant about doing manga art.
And being in my country with little population, that I can understand.
At this point, a lot of manga artists out there would give u

Free Nordanner Giveaway!Free Nordanner Giveaway!2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
If you or somebody you know has no Nordanners (this means no breeding slots, no pending sales, etc), here's your chance! I'm willing to give away a bunch of 100% free foals from the two Nordanners above. Since they're both approved at Supreme Blood, Badis and Gambler have unlimited breeding slots. It's become somewhat of a tradition for me to hand out free foals/slots from time to time, so here we are again!
Requirements for eligibility are as follows: account must be at least two weeks old, have a few pieces of art up (I won't be handing foals/slots out to people with completely blank accounts), agree to my breeding rules (click here), and currently hold no Nordanner slots, pending sales, etc.
If you fit all of these eligibility requirements, simply comment below! Your name will be m

Genetics / Color HelpThis list has been edited and tidied up--while we are happy to help everyone to understand genetics a little better, the group is not here to provide you genetic lessons. If you're not sure about something you're free to ask, but remember that there are a lot of amazing resources out there, including some linked below!Genetics / Color Help3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's some very basic genetic info:
Remember there are a lot of fabulous piles of information on the internet!
I have tried my best to make this simple and easy to understand.
Unless you can prove I'm writing something wrong, the group is not interested in disussing or changing this journal or add extra details.
This is the basic info that will help our new breeders understand colors a bit better according to the Nordanner.
I do not care that actual genetic knowledge would fill several pages, as long as I am not entirely incorrect and info is easy to understand!
So please leave genetic opinions and knowhow to your own journals.

Hi peopleAs you all know there are a lot of Sonic fans in the world that love all charas and stuff. I consider myself one too, as you can notice my fave chara isHi people1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Knuckles and second Silver.
But there's a little something I've always asked myself about some fans, and it's that WHY do most of them hate Amy? I mean, yeah she chases Sonic a lot and tries to find a way to make him notice her, so what? I think some people have done that before with someone they like but why make so much of a fuss on her?
I'm not saying this as an Amy fan but as a normal person, why so much hate? Why so much hate art? Faving hate art and Making hate art? Her being killed, someone beating her up, someone's OC killing, beating her up OR making her date Sonic to make her jealous. I mean, is it really necessary?
I mean there has to be a GOOD reason to not like a fictional character that'll never get offended by the insults or hate she's getting since she doesn't exist.
I can't say I'm innocent myself because you all

General rules of foal designs
Only use the OFFICIAL GROUP FOAL LINES, and DO NOT EDIT THEM. The rules on making small edits is listed on the images description:
Do NOT shade or highlight your design; it will distort the colours and may make your foal look too dark or light when your real base colour is acceptable.
Do NOT add dyes, contacts, scars etc. to a foal design; it should be your foal in the most basic form without any extras. You can add these things in the reference image.
If the horse is identical on both sides, you CAN have dyes, scars, contacts etc. showing on the alternative side of the foal. This means you have both sides showing, one in the "natural" state and the other with the additions.
Do NOT use old foal designs or import images as reference points. They can give you an idea of the colour, but they are some

Krita's brush system is fast and smooth. It is optimized for graphics tablets with pressure support.Ruler tool assistance when drawing long curves (something comparable to SAI).It doesn't draw jigsaws when zoomed out (my nightmare when using Adob
