SWAMP THING: The Orchestral ScoreGot a weird treats for you all,SWAMP THING: The Orchestral Score4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years, whenever I've been intensively drawing a comic project I often felt the need the write myself some music. I've found out multiplying my creative output mysteriously benefit them all. There is, usually, no link bridging my Comic and musical world. Some fugues and some String Quartet sketches have been paired with Batman Incorporated for instance.
This time, being so enthusiast for swamp thing, I went and wrote the scored for issue 7 & 8. OK, not really, but I've tried to cover their thematic stuff in a 3:16 of Full Orchestral Music.
Here a breakdown of the cues:
00:00 The timeless mystery of the Green
00:49 Growth and fate of the Green Warrior
1:36 The Rot
2:00 A bit of actionny big battle for those who got bored until now.
May you enjoy this roughs mix.

Ignition CrisisHey guys. Here is the story for Ignition Crisis, My personal story and projectIgnition Crisis1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ignition Crisis is Story that takes place in a fictional version of our world, and is set in Los Angeles, California, and follows the trials and tribulations of its three main protagonists. Klaus Schutleberg is the youngest son of an infamous Arms dealer after having an affair with a popular model. He and his mother are supported by his father; however they live alone in a high end apartment. Klaus is bullied and picked on relentlessly at school, and it gets to the point where Klaus’s father hires a bodyguard for him. The bodyguard is former mercenary Carl Nadez, a recovering drug addict who is suffering from depression following an unspecified incident that happened two years ago. With His employment comes the arrival of a low level Interpol team, to monitor Klaus and Carl. In the team is Sarah Stately, a highly intelligent and ambitious woman with a past with Carl. Despite h

Controversial OpinionsYou know, sometimes having opinions can make you feel like no one else shares your views, especially if your views aren't being widely vocalized around you. Case in point: It's just been announced that J.J.Abrams will be directing Star Wars 7, and the internet is raging with butthurt about how shitty Abrams is, making over abundant lens flare jokes, and bemoaning the reboot of Star Trek in the process.Controversial Opinions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thing is... I like J.J.Abrams. I liked LOST (despite it's shitty/rushed ending). I liked Super 8. I liked Cloverfield. I even enjoyed the recent Star Trek reboot and am looking forward to the sequel. I never had a problem with lens flares or noticed them being over used. And I think overall Abrams has made a fairly consistent batch of quality movies, which is a amazing considering how many directors flip flop between great and shitty.
But I can't often come right out and say that sort of thing because when I do I get attacked for having an opinion that runs counter to the vast majority o

One of the things I hate about the internet is that everything must be quantifiable. Without a proper source, no one will believe you, no matter how reliable your original info was when you received it. It doesn't matter if you heard it from a professor giving a lecture in college, if you read it in a book, read a report by a scientist, or saw a documentary that went into elaborate detail... if there isn't an internet equivalent, then you're seen as a compulsive liar.
Case in point, recently someone mentioned that my sketches look better than my finished artwork and I responded by telling them that there was science that helped back up why that phenomenon exists. But since I couldn't remember the source, I got trolled hardcore for saying that. Today, however, I stumbled upon a close enough equivalence. Here's a quote:
The sketchiness of line art mimics the natural lack of clarity in our peripheral vision. When we look at the real wo

KEEP IN MIND THAT I'M NOT THE BEST AND MY PONY ANATOMY ISN'T PERFECT. THESE VIDEOS ARE TO SHOW YOU HOW I DRAW PONIES FOR MY ART AND COMICS. TO GIVE YOU A GOOD IDEA ON HOW TO GO ABOUT DRAWING PONIES FOR YOURSELF.
If you decide to start drawing, keep in mind that your not going to be great at it when you first try. Believe me I couldn't draw ponies to save my life, but I keep at it and look at me now.
Don't give up, as long as you keep it up you'll soon be drawing ponies in no time. Also don't treat art as a chore, have fun with it.
Also use References to help you out, don't be ashamed to use them. Also check out this link for helpful pony anatomy sketches http://gunrunnersarsenal.tumblr.com/post/17039753243/tutorial-stuff-which-can-be-really-usefull
Also please read this journal
It may be long but it will help you understand what every artist goes through, so your not alone.
My best tip for you is,
Michael Eisner: life and death of 2-D animationI was going to make this into a youtube video, but I just don't have the motivation to actually complete it. After doing a documentary on the history of Cel animation I thought it would be neat to tackle the death of 2-D animation in America, since I know a lot of people don't really understand how or why it all happened. This is a very condensed version of the past 20 years, most facts taken directly from Roy Disney's "Save Disney" website and the "Art of Animation" by Bob Thomas. I did my best to make sure all the facts listed below are as accurate as I can make them. This is a LONG post, but I think it's worth reading. I had to change a few words here and there to make it sound more like a journal instead of text being read for a video. It should also be noted that it primarily concerns ONLY mainstream American animation. ENJOY!Michael Eisner: life and death of 2-D animation4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Be one of the first 14 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will put your avatar and three deviations that I will personally select from your gallery in this "Share the Art" feature.
IMPORTANT: If you do comment, you're expected to do the same in your own journal; putting me on the first place, completing the list with 14 other people to make a sum of 15 people..
The idea behind this is NOT to get a free feature, but to help spread art and artists around for everyone. So why not check out the artists on other peoples' list?
Thanks to my friendsI would just like to take a moment to thank all the people who have looked at my pieces of artwork and read over my work in progress. I don't know what is about this fandom that made me want to publish my works in the first place. I am glad I decide to get into ponies or I might not have tried any of this in the first place.Thanks to my friends4 years ago in Personal More Like This

This is just like one of those normal journal entry test where you put an x in the box near the question if it is true. remember, x = 1 point (or whatever amount of points it says that you must add). If your OC is a mary sue or gary stu, don't have some little hissy fit and point fingers at somebody but yourself. This test speaks the truth, and if you don't like the result, then I suggest you change some things about your OC. Have fun.

First the good news.
Thanks to the cover art to All That is Fair, by :iconTheParagon: being featured in :iconMLP-FIM: I have picked up a few more followers and the story gotten a bunch of favs. Yeah for success by association.
Oh my foot is healing nicely by the way. I can walk on it again and the pain mostly gone. But, misfortune love company (bad news part).
My family and I were driving back from an extended family gathering for my fathers birthday. We were driving back on Hwy 6 in Utah (top 15 dangerous roads in the us), when the car in front of us didn't quite make the turn and hit an on coming car, spinning it out towards us. We were almost able to get out of the way but it hit my side of car. Everyone is okay who was involved in the crash.
I guess I need to write this out to get it out of my system.
USA ShutdownUm... my government kinda stopped working today. I'm gonna summarize these events rather generally, so if you don't like what I say here, tough luck go fight about it in the comment section. I'm writing this not because I want to talk about politics, but because I'm sorta obligated to since it's a BIG DEAL here and people are confused and wondering what's going on.USA Shutdown2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So we have a budget that needs to get passed every year to keep things running. The president gives the budget to Congress and Congress approves of it. Except that Congress is so inefficient at getting things done, they often wait too long to pass the budget by the deadline. So generally what happens is they pass an extension to take care of it later, which shouldn't be a big deal. But this year Republicans added an addendum to the extension saying they wanted to bump Obamacare till next year, and squabbling ensued.
Now Obamacare has already passed into Law. It's even been upheld by the Supreme Court. There is nothing Republ

A Little StuckHello everypony,A Little Stuck4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me start off by apologize for the long time it is taking me to come out with the next Chapter. I guess it a little writers block in the details of the chapter, especially the some of the dialog exchanges. I have an overall "road map" of the path I want this chapter to follow and where it will end up. It just the parts of the journey that don't sit right with me.
Along with my writer's block, the real world is starting to take up more of my time again. Being in the senior year of the college mean I have a senior project along with many presentation on my project. Plus I am helping a professor design a new lab for next year's short winter term. So for the past week and a half I have been spend all day in the lab.
But do not fret (more for me then you), I am working on it slowly. I even trying my hand at drawing to try and work out of this funk.
Thanks for your patience.

So here is the situation. Today was warmest December day in recorded history of my home town, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. My parents asked me help get up some leaves from the backyard. There were some boards where I was working, now these boards had been there for years and had nothing bad happen before. I was cleaning leaves when I board stuck to my shoe. I got the board off, and then went to take a step low and behold there was still a rusty nail in my shoe and it went in my foot.

The new voice is a bit more girly then the first. I am fine with either one, but I still like :iconbalddumborat: Balddumborat voice the most.
