Face your past demonsAfter 3 year recess from drawing I've created thing on the left:Face your past demons2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(Link to right picture http://fav.me/d5qxzn9)
I had practically no knowledge of drawing human postures* and did it just for fun. And look where this "fun"** brought me.
There are still things I'm struggling with like color composition, dynamic poses/scenes, perspective and backgrounds. However reading art blogs/tutorials, watching other artists work and practicing on paper and tablet will gradually improve every aspect that I'm having trouble with. I've even made a notebook to draw sketches on the go when I don't have access to tablet (I've never posted anything from its content, I'm too lazy to scan it and clean scans).
So with no point to prove and no lesson to teach I'm ending this entry,

My Little Dashie PoemShe came to me like an angelMy Little Dashie Poem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She was beautiful from every angle
Showed up when my life was grim
Poured in a light when mine was dim
She was very young, but really strong
Running around all night long
Only once did she ever speak
Made my heart jump to next week
She kissed my cheek to know she had me
Cutely said "I love you, Daddy"
The day she left, I tried not to cry
But wasn't able the moment she said bye
Mouthing the words with eyes now filled
"I love you, Daddy...I always will"
Now I gaze at her baby pictures
My heart feels it's covered in blisters
The day I found her I remember well
In the wind, it must have been hell
Sitting in that box all alone
The box Read "Give To A Good Home"

10 Second Tip - Making TitlesDo you have a tutorial on how to decide the title for your story?10 Second Tip - Making Titles1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When I can't decide on a title, I fall back on how the professionals do it.
> No more than Three words, preferably Two. One word is considered ideal for a title.
> You can have Four if the word is 'And,' 'The,' 'A,' or something similar.
> One word for the Genre.
> Any other words should stand for:
-- the Emotion the story is trying to invoke
-- a Character
-- an Action
-- a Location
Star Trek (genre + emotion)
Grimm (Genre & Emotion in one word.)
Once Upon a Time (Genre)
The Addams Family (Name = Genre + Emotion)
-- 'Addams' IS a genre because the name has been recognized and associated with "spooky" since the 1930s when the comic first appeared in 'New Yorker Magazine.'
Deep Space 9 (Genre & Location)

Guide on how to create vector-style rasters (OLD)EDIT - Dec 08, 2013 - This is OLD, like really, really OOOOOOLLLLD and outdated, and there are better methods out there. I don't even do vectors this way anymore. That said, it's still useful as a guide on how to use the pen tool to make shapes specifically for pony vectors in a manner where they're layered efficiently easily modifiable. Just felt the need to point this out as I am still getting messages from people who don't understand that this is old and that I know there are alternative methods. I thank you all for your input.Guide on how to create vector-style rasters (OLD)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I say anything, if you're familiar with proper vectoring at all then once you've heard what I do you'll realize I'm not making "true" vectors with the process I use. This might seem a bit odd because what I do means that if I wanted to make a larger version of the image I would basically have to scale the paths I've made and re-"paint" the whole image, but I'm just doing these for fun so I make them large to begin with; the end re

Princess Celestia - MLP's Darth Sidious? updatedHello, fellow bronies.Princess Celestia - MLP's Darth Sidious? updated2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We all know that Princess Celestia has shown herself to be a compassionate ruler, a caring sister to Princess Luna, and a good teacher to Twilight Sparkle. She's beloved by all. She raises and sets the sun, while Luna moves the moon. They say there were meant to rule Equestria together.
After "The Crystal Empire," though, leaves me thinking about something that may disturb you all.
Princess Celestia must have had some questions: why should she have to share the throne with Luna? She has enough power to lift both the sun and the moon all by herself. She's the oldest foal of the family. She should be the sole heir. What were her parents thinking?
Perhaps she wasn't like that when she was a filly... But when she became a teenager, it was most likely that King Sombra "opened her eyes" to what he called "reality." He filled her with fear, anger, and hate, and made her suffer. And thus, he took her in as his apprentice, both intent of destroying

Valiant goes by "Lance"
Valiant's love life isn't very successful even though he's kind, charming and handsome. He's been out with quite a few mares making him seem like a player but he's just looking for the right one.
He's jealous of Prism's relationship with Whirlwind and wonders why she and Prism broke up in the first place. He thinks they should get back together.

King Sombra looked at Jesse as he said, "Now I just can't wait to sink my fangs into that boy."
"Now, now Sombra, I told you that you'll get your chance," I said to Sombra, "Now I'll place one face down and end my turn," as I placed my face down.
"Alright then, my draw," Jesse said pulling out another card from his deck, "Come on out Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus," as Sapphire Pegasus appeared on the field.
"Well aren't you a handsome sight," Rarity said kindly to Sapphire Pegasus.
"Well thank you," Sapphire Pegasus said to Rarity.

Really damn important, kindaGuys please read this.Really damn important, kinda2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So as many of my irl friends know (along with those of you who have been on tumblr in the last hour), I have been going through a really angsty phase regarding my gender identity. Not going to lie, I am dramatic about this stuff. But it has been seriously on my mind lately.
The deal is, although I am not 100% sure about this myself, I have to take a leap of faith because that's how I do things. That's how I grow and learn.
I am female-to-male transgender. It's something I've been uncertain of since like elementary school, but the feeling isn't going away. When I dress as a boy, I feel much more comfortable (despite the small physical discomfort of a binder). According to my hippie mother, I have "very strong male energy for a girl". Strong sun energy, yang, whatever you want to call it. On a spiritual level, I lean very much to the masculine side.
So do me a big one, and let me try this out. I would love for you to use masculine pronouns, but if you slip u
