Pony Pattern Available for Sale!After months of work, my pony pattern is now available for sale on etsy!
There are two versions available. The $15 version is the physical pattern and shipping in the US. The $20 version includes the physical pattern (with shipping in the US) and a PDF emailed to you! Edit: Due to popular demand from overseas I've added a $15 PDF only option. That listing comes with an extra sneak peak at my most recent test pony!
You can purchase it here in my etsy shop.
Thank you so much for all your amazing support and patience!
Edit: Totally forgot to mention! Since I expect there to be a bit of a rush *little scared here*, I'm going to be dealing with the first few days of orders as a batch and shipping them next Monday. Oops! I mean I'll be shipping them on Tuesday morning since Monday is a federal holiday and the post office is closed! -_-'

What was Sakky's Annual Free Plushie Giveaway!?
Starting last year I decided to have a giveaway during the holiday season where one person would win a custom plushie made by me. You see, I have a week off between Christmas and New Years and while I'm SURE I could find plenty to do on my own in that time, I figure it's ALWAYS exciting to win something and I really like making things for people. Not everyone can afford a custom plushie so this is a fun and free way for people to have a
Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!That last journal was a doozie wasn't it? Let's do something fun instead and get our minds out of the muddy waters of art definitions for a minute.Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked to do a mini drawing competition. Kinda like what :iconhumon: just did. So here's a really basic run down of the rules in no way copied and pasted from her journal with minor alterations: j/k
The Drawing Competition:
1. Draw any of TomPreston's characters (SYAC, Alex Ze Pirate, or any smaller groups) in London.
2. Upload the image to your dA gallery.
3. Comment on this journal (or the main Fresh Epics comment box) with a link to your image.
- I'll then +Fav/add to collection it.
- I'll look though the collection and pick the winners.
Winners will get Alex Ze Pirate book 2 and SYAC Book 1, plus posters! YAY!
It should go without saying but parodies, trolling, hate art, or explicit sexual stuff = instant disqualifying. I mean, that should be a given but it needs to be said I suppose.

what happened to zuko's mother?Dark Horse continued to up the "Avatar" ante with its graphic novel series "The Promise," which helps fill in the gap between the end of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "Legend of Korra." Written by "American Born Chinese" creator Gene Luen Yang with art by Gurihiru Studios, the three-part graphic novel series wraps in September -- but that doesn't mean it's the end of Avatar Aang's adventures.what happened to zuko's mother?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This weekend at the American Library Association, Dark Horse announced Yang and Gurihiru will return for a second "Avatar: The Last Airbender" graphic novel series called "The Search," which explores the biggest unsolved mystery in "Avatar" lore: what happened to Prince Zuko's mother?
CBR News spoke with Yang, a longtime "Avatar: The Last Airbender" fan, about his work on "The Search," wrapping up "The Promise, his feelings about "Legend of Korra," the challenge of linking the two shows and their characters together and the return of Princess Azula. No release date at this time. Go look at this
BRAVE was... ok.Saw Brave the other night. I had deliberately kept all info about this movie away from me so that I could go in with a fresh viewpoint. There might be spoilers here, so if you haven't seen the movie tread carefully through this journal. To be honest, I don't really want to talk about the movie all that much, but more or less the public perception of this movie.BRAVE was... ok.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Brave was quite good, but I have a feeling it's not gonna have the impact so many people were expecting it to. Prior to the release, the fact that this was a PIXAR princess story with a female lead was SUCH a huge deal to some people. I think there were some lofty expectations that this was going to trump Disney princess stories and show women as strong capable role models without resorting to typical cliches and what not...
I'm not sure if that's what PIXAR was going for, in fact, the biggest complaint being lobbied against Brave is that it's both "too safe" and "too conventionally Disney." Brave is a good movie, but it does fo
Kony 2012I've gotten a lot of requests to talk about this, which coincidentally happened right along side my two political cartoons taking off like wild fire. Dunno if it was an accident or bad timing, but right now it seems like everyone wants me to talk about Kony... which I honestly don't know why because I'm not a journalist and everyone else is making such a big deal about it I don't know what else I could offer to the discussion other than "yup, this is going on, check out the links."Kony 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now keep in mind this next bit will be very scarce in details because I still haven't been able to muster up enough facts and everyone else seems to already know so much, so I apologize if it's a bit condensed.
Who is Kony?
The LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) is a religious militant group which operates in several countries including Uganda, Sudan, and the Central African Republic. Formed in 1987 they gained prominence and attention for their extremist atrocities committed against civilians and ch

Hello! Because of the surplus of points given by our wonderful members when getting a renewed super group, we have decided to hold a contest to give the points back to the community!
The contest is going to be for Gala outfit designs! Now, I know the Royal Wedding is coming up, but the outfits have already been released for the mane six, as well as many of the background characters. So this is going to be for the next year's Grand Galloping Gala.

Goals...?I've been thinking about this for a while now. What exactly do I want to do with comics? What are some of my goals? What's the future hold for my stuff? Here are just a couple of stream of conscious thoughts:Goals...?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't want to be big on YouTube, that's for sure. I've never liked getting in-front of the camera, I don't have the time or ambition to work on animations anymore, and I certainly can't crank out videos as fast as some of the big guys over there. It's a huge competition and I just don't want to have anything to do with that. I think my youtube page is marked private and you have to have specific links to view anything. I might make an odd video here or there, but they're most likely just goofy things I do for fun, not for any sort of attention or recognition.
I'm curious about how I should move forward with DA. I think a majority of my haters are outraged that I'm popular on DA and that I'm content with drawing simple cartoons when I'm obviously talented enough to do more comple

Quickie update-- thanks and apologiesHey all---- I thought I'd come up for air for a few seconds to give a quick update.Quickie update-- thanks and apologies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been seeing lots of comments asking about why I don't answer messages or post more art. I want to offer my apologies. I just get so, so many notes, and my work is especially demanding these days. To top it all off, the last 6 months have been kind of rough for me personally and the combination of all these elements just means I don't have the time to answer.
Still, I want to thank every one for the constant supply of kind words, inspiring stories and compliments. I do get to read most of your notes (I think--- I hope!!) and the vast majority are so thoughtful. And with the kind of year I've had, it really lifts my spirits.
I'm hoping that by the end of the year, maybe during Thanksgiving or Christmas break, I'll be able to put together an FAQ. Lots of people ask for advice on how to get into animation, and I plan on answering that on
On Behalf of Everyone...Thank You.Earlier today I received a message from our Studio B receptionist letting me know that a package had arrived for me. While I wasn't at the studio, I had my good friend pick it up so I could retrieve it from her later on. At first I was a bit weary to the situation, I didn't know who it was from, nor was I expecting anything in the least. All day while Raven and I passed our time at the mall, I pondered and worried about the strangeness of the situation. I found it odd that someone would send a bouquet of beautiful flowers and two carefully wrapped presents to the studio (who wasn't my husband to be anyhow!)On Behalf of Everyone...Thank You.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

3D PRINTED PONY COMMISSIONSHow many times have you said to yourself "Man, I really want a show-accurate toy of _____, but there isn't one, and commissioning a sculptor would cost too much."3D PRINTED PONY COMMISSIONS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
RABIDPEEP AND I HAVE A 3D PRINTER. WE CAN MAKE TOYS OF ANYTHING. Want a figure of that one pony in that crazy pose from that one episode? WE CAN MAKE IT. ANYPONY. ANY POSE.
What the Heck?! How is this possible?
Okay, okay no. First I model the pony up in 3DS Max. That's right, no lifting free models off the internet—we custom-model these toys to order. I export the model, and then it gets converted into code for the printer. About eight hours later, we've got an unruly mess of plastic that has to be trimmed, at which point I usually slice all my fingers open with the X-acto knife. Twice. Then we throw it in a chamber with boiled acetone vapor to give it a quick smooth down befo

I joined Deviant Art I few years back bright eyed and hopeful. I tried to show case some talent I felt I had and over a period gained a handful of friends. Like most folks in the last several years the hard times came and with that I slowly faded away from this friendly art community.

$30 Commissions -OPEN-Well, it's been about 6 months so... I'm gonna start accepting commissions again.$30 Commissions -OPEN-3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't generally do commissions very often because I'm pretty bad at mailing things and replying to e-mails... So I'm gonna try to streamline this process to make it easier for all of us. Sound good? Please read the rules carefully below. They're pretty basic stuff, and I've included a template at the bottom to make the process even simpler.
***RULES PLEASE READ***
1) Price: Flat rate of $30 per page. I'm at liberty to add an additional $5-$10 if I feel the work is more ambitious than the flat rate. For example, don't expect to commission me to draw all 600+ pokemon for $30, that's just silly. We'll discuss prices more in e-mails if it comes up, but for the most part $30 should cover just about everything.
2) No fetish stuff.
3) I'm only going to accept digital commissions. I'm absolutely awful at sending original artwork through the mail, and I don't want to keep people waiting for their work. Wh
Commissions -CLOSED- New commission round is running! Wuwuu! <3Commissions -CLOSED-4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Waitlist is currently closed!
In advance, some rules and information about my commission handling:
- One slot per person.
- I will open/ close wait list as how many people ask for a slot.
- I will split up the waitlist and note the persons when they can send me their commission infos. The info about the new commission round will be announced here.
- If the waitlist is closed, but you want a new slot, just be patient for the next waitlist round.
- I will allow ACEO commissioners to hop in from time to time, because sometimes I can work on the small card sizes better between huge commissions.
As always, be patient with me, I am no pro, but I give my best! If anything is unclear, don't hesitate to ask.
