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! -_-'

YAY THANK YOU GUYS! I will be in touch with the winners soon to work out the details!! This was so much fun!! I hope to see you back here again next year! MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY WHATEVER, HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR! [La la la la]
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!4 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.
Deadline: A week from today: May 16th.
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 20124 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
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

$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

http://fav.me/d534voe Updated journal on the contest. Midnight tonight pacific coast time, start wrapping them up if you want in.
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. With some help from friends we reopen DreamOrchid's doors with a new website (www.dreamorchid.com), official DreamOrchid face book page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOrchid/189645937780364), and even a twitter account. Please feel free to like us if you wish. With all this said I'm back with a bang. I decided since I hit 20k views and with the renewal of a subscription to throw a contest.

In addition, I chose to make it other people's OC's because it is more challenging to make a design for someone else than it is for yourself.

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.
There will be two categories, and three grand prizes!
First, canon character designs. This means the mane six or any canon backgro
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 COMMISSIONS3 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
