I'm also going back to London on the 16th (YAH!) so I'll hopefully get lots more art done, though my interenet isn't great so I may take a while to get back to you. Hope you are all having a wonderful summer time!
Look at the amazing work!
Digital CollageWhat do we mean by digital collage?Digital Collage4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What’s the difference between a digital collage and a photomanipulation?
The basic definition of Digital Collage is that it is a form of graphic art that uses virtual imagery and textures from different sources pieced and layered together (in a program such as Photoshop) into one final assembled image. The difference between digital collage and photomanipulation is that in a digital collage the artist usually works to make it somewhat obvious that the finished image has been made by “pasting” different images together.
Digital collage tends to rely heavily on traditional collage strategies such as ~
Chiasmage - consistent destruction of the primary motifs. The structures of various types of print, of music sheets, letters, geographic and star maps, chessboards or photographs are torn to little pieces and then put together again and glued to a base.

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

It may be long but it will help you understand what every artist goes through, so your not alone.

Soul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!So today I received a treat in my facebook inbox from old colleague and now-kickass GW artist, Kevin "Kingmong" Chin: http://www.blacklibrary.com/Blog/Art_and_Soul.htmlSoul Drinkers and Imperial Guards!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Right now, I'm still awaiting a response from the Black Librarians to see if I am allowed to post some higher-res versions of my 3 Soul Drinkers covers here on DA. Till then, this is all they have up on their blog and all I have to show for, for now! For you Soul Drinkers fans out there, I was told not to reference any notable characters of the SD lore and come up with my own designs.
The general brief for the 3 covers was to have a tactical space marine, a captain, and lastly a dreadnought (being awoken). I thought it would be a neat idea to compose all the covers from a similar worms eye angle, not just for theatrics but rather to literally show the life cycle of a Space Marine as he fights and rises through the ranks, leading his brethren and eventually being entombed within a dreadnought to continue his tireless fig

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.

But another online store site sharkrobot.com that is the store for many web comic and web parody shows has a few Pony tees.
First up is a Mega Mare shirt Found at this; http://sharkrobot.com/t-shirts-c-17/mega-mare
Next is a Skyrim parody of the brony movement. I give you the Bronyborn; http://sharkrobot.com/t-shirts-c-17/bronieborn
They also have a section call ponytees but nothing that great there. All they got is tees that have the mane six cutie marks at the bottom of the tee; http://sharkrobot.com/pony-tees;
I really like the skyrim tee even though they spelled brony wrong, but what are you going to do.

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.

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.
I quick trip to the ER, a tetanus booster shot and a bottle of antibiotics. I will be alright, but hey more time it sit around watch ponies.

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. But, the thing that make it really bad is the fact that they had to take out Derpy's name and they toned down her eyes. I thought this week could not get any worse. I guess I was wrong.

I thought that would never happen. I only started drawing ponies (or anything else) back in December as a I don't have any money for gifts, lets give this a try. To my requester I shall do my best.
One other thing I finally starting to figure out to draw ponies digital. I found a useful tutorial from the ATG ground week 29 theme. I might put it up tomorrow, I still need to experiment more before I am really read to work in this medium.
So long for now, I need to get start on day four if I want to get it in on time.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas (sort of...)The Night Before 986996.M41'Twas the Night Before Christmas (sort of...)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
by Patrick Marstall (MarstallP@bah.com)
‘Twas the night before 986996.M41, and all through the station
All there was clear, there was no abomination.
My helmet was set on the desk to my right,
On the chance that I was to need it that night.
The guardsmen were ensconced, asleep in their beds,
All the tanks too were safe, secure in the sheds.
Marines in the barracks, some manning the wall,
Assured me that the bastion never would fall.
When out in the yard there arose such discord
I grabbed up my bolter and unsheathed my sword.
Away to the window, I ran to take aim
As the marines around me all did the same.
My bionic eye turned the night into day
Allowed me to see, and to seek out my prey.
When what did my loyalist ocular show,
But an ancient conveyance, knee-deep in the snow.
The vehicle was pulled by horned quadrupeds
And a fiery red nimbus glowed from the sled.
The driver was mighty, his eyes full of scorn,
Dressed all in crimson like a servant of Kho

Good day Comrades, I come with an observation. It has come to my attention that many Artists are discontent with how Deviant art operates and therefore effects them. Now what could they be discontent with you may ask, well they take issue with their popularity. Few will admit it as such but this is the simplified explanation. To expand on that, what I mean is that many Artists find themselves wanting more comments, more views, more interaction. I've seen it happen to many Artists as of recent. They feel undervalued and unappreciated. Many will point to a skill gap to explain this dilemma, But I see it differently.
Now then what could be causing the problem?
Well there are many reasons for why someone will receive less interaction than others. View-ability. It's very hard to get noticed on Deviant art. The main ways being; Groups, the front page, and searches. Now two of these ways are immediately made m
