Bolin Cosplay Tutorial----UPDATE----Bolin Cosplay Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have uploaded the pictures of the main pattern pieces for the jacket to my scrapbook. Take a look if you are having troubles modifying your own pattern! (I couldn't find the pattern for the collar, I drew it on a piece of paper somewhere and I think it is gone now... sorry!)
I have had a lot of requests asking how I made the jacket for my cosplay, so I decided I would write a quick overview of what went into making it. I will not go into excruciating detail, but if you would like more help on any particular section, please leave a comment and I would be happy to elaborate!
STEP 1: Picking fabric
Print lots of good colored reference shots for yourself (or carry a smartphone with you) before heading to the fabric store. It goes without saying that you want to pick fabric with color that closely resembles your source, but it is also important to take into consideration things like the thickness and flexibility of yo

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.

Nuances of an Annual Ritual
Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

So yeah the next chapter in "All that is Fair Part 1" has been taking some time to complete. I am going to tell you why, it has been taking so frakkin long.
I last updated the story back in December during my last winter break from college. By last I mean that as the last winter break of my undergraduate career. After that I focused on completing my senior thesis. That included completing my experiments and writing up the results,write a grant, and I also prepared three different presentations of my work. This took me to Graduation at the end of May.
I know I should have put my story on Hiatus but I was scared that I would lose some you. I didn't complete drop the story I would work on it here and there. Then I had a little bit of time before my family, friends and fiancee showed up so I reviewed what i had done in those five months. To make it short I didn't like what I had written for

Waiting for the Snow to FallStill waiting for the snow to fall, doesn't even feel like Christmas at all. -Coldplay Christmas lights.Waiting for the Snow to Fall2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well it is finals week at my universty in the pacific northwest. The weather is cold but yet no rain or snow has fallen down low. Instead it decided to be bright and the air is kind of gunky looking. It is all rather confusing. But yet I find myself not being able to get into the Christmas spirit at all this year because of the weather.
Plus the heat doesn't seem to be working in the library, so it rather chilly inside. It would not be so bad if I was just studing in the library, but I also work at the library as well. Today I am pulling a double shift.
I would not be so bad if there was snow on the ground, and more of a holiday atmosphere around campus.
Enough ranting back to studying and working.

A featured artist not native to Deviant ArtWhat is up good people! Today we have an interview with someone who may not be from Deviant Art, but many of you may know.A featured artist not native to Deviant Art2 months ago in Personal More Like This
His name is Gavin Dunne. Irish born musician who goes by the moniker, Miracle of Sound.
For those of you who don't know, Gavin has been a musician for several years. But over the last couple of years has gained notoriety for his video game themed songs. From Mass Effect to Skyrim and even songs inspired by shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.
Gavin has crossed styles from dubstep to metal and always delivers. With five albums under his belt and over a hundred songs he is constantly pumping out music for those to enjoy and listen to and now he shares a bit of himself with us.
So...here we go!
So I know this is probably something that you answer quite often, but for those reading who are not all that familiar, could you tell us a bit about who you are and your work

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.

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?

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.
A Little StuckHello everypony,A Little Stuck2 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.

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.
