The Reputation of Bronies- EDIT- Derpy Hooves[EDIT]The Reputation of Bronies- EDIT- Derpy Hooves4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made this blog originally BEFORE I had caught wind of the whole Derpy fiasco that's been going on. I'm a bit slow like that, with my lack of internet. But what I've seen this morning has caused me to NEED to bring this issue up with all of you, so please read this and take it as seriously as you took the previous one.
First of all, what I would like to point out from the previous post is that a lot of people were surprised, some even disbelieving, that bronies were trolling each other. Well, I'm here to show you some of the nasties that I've seen. I will only show you a link to ONE case, but know there are many more.
Someone showed me a deviant who had been brutally harassed by FiM bronies, because she was friends with an animator of the G1 MLP show. This animator was also brutally assaulted verbally, with threats on his life from hysterical bronies who hate the G1 show. Now, obviously, not everyone is like this. But there is enough bronies out there who are "FiM purist" enoug

5 Reasons to WriteI wrote a blog once that urged comic artists to try writing their own books. I held back a bit on what I said--Punk Rock Jesus hadn't come out yet, so I didn't feel like I had the proper authority to really speak up.5 Reasons to Write3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since then, there's been a lot more discussion about the etiquette of publishers toward their freelancers, the recent rise of creator owned books, and the effects of Hollywood moving into comics (or vice versa). And as friend of mine at Newsarama pointed out recently, I'm one of a few guys who's found a middle ground--not only because I'm writing and drawing my own book, but because my OGN is partially owned by DC Comics.
Certain events of the last year have created new concerns within our industry. Do you still need to work for big publishers if you want to "make it"? Do they deliver a better product than creator owned books? Are the Big Two treating creators as fairly as they've always been? Between the rise of digital comics and comic-based movies, are creators getting

Well I just got back from japan! It was amazing, Japan was on my bucket list and it was a dream come true to visit. I was there with :iconcheeks-74: :iconryanbnjmn:. While there I got little sleep because I was helping out Cheeks color a Superman comic for Dc Comics (which is announced to hit stands digitally Nov 11 and Nov 18)
The flight took foreeever.
Difference Number 1: People don't chain up there bikes. They just leave them in the streets and no one steals them.
Also, what do you think of my new bike...
Difference Number 2: A lot of people don't even close there doors, because people rarely steal!
I saw a huge temple in the distance from the hotel.
So we walked like 3 miles to get to it. It was an adventure mostly because we couldn't ask for directions because no one understood us. Annnd we didn't know the temple name. This was a huge bell it the top of set of Totoro-like stairs onto a mountain. It was so beautiful.

PE: Learning to paint with deviantArtA lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.PE: Learning to paint with deviantArt3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Thousand of kilometers apart, Sheriff (sheriffdesignstudio) and myself, (AlexandraSophie), met on deviantArt.
He lived in Sri Lanka, and me in France.
He spoke only English, and me only French.
We were from different continent, culture, religion...
But love was stronger than anything!
It was already almost 3 years ago that we exchanged our first comment,
He found my profile with this photo:
I could never have imagined, when I took this photo, so randomly the day of
his birthday but one year before we met (definitely a sign!)
as I was sitting in my backyard, playing with the camera with not any real intention,
that it would make me meet the perfectest prince charming,
who is now going to be the dad of a little baby, actually in a warm preparation in my tummy!
We fell in love at the first second we spoke to each others, and needed only a few days to make it official,
it was the July 4th, 2008. He just turned 17, and I was about to turn 16.

You obviously love to create, you do it often and now the time has come when you realize that this is no fling, this is something you would want to do for the whole life. You can learn a lot about techniques from numerous sources, you can find the right audience on the internet but there is one thing nobody can help you with but yourself - how to gain a specific style of your own?
What is a personal painting style?
- It's an identifiable style that enables the viewer to determine that the artwork was done by you
- In some cases, your style can be viewed as an extension of your personality
How can one develop it?
- Developing your style takes time, time and time once again. Don't have the time? No style for you!
- It's not acquirable in an art class. While it can be helpful to study by an assistance of someone who's m

I PERFORMED FOR THE PRINCESS OF THAILAND!My Dad and I performed infront of the princess of thailand for this German and Thai officials event called 'Lets celebrate'.I PERFORMED FOR THE PRINCESS OF THAILAND!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
They had all sorts of performances like fashion shows, singers, dancers, violin players. It was really neat! It was really formal. I had to learn how to stand and bow properly infront of the princess. Also i had to wear and evening gown, and then when i was up to perform, i had to change into my performance cloths and AFTER the performance I had to change back into my evening gown so i could sit at the table again haha.
Dad sang, I danced to our original song called Release me. Its a different type of music, kinda trance/meditation type. My brother did the background music.
Links to our music is in the youtube description ^_^ if ya wanna hear.
Check it out if ya want! Vlogs seem to be the only thing i have time to make haha but this was supposed to be up weeks ago!

Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as not
Username changes?I had to kind of do a double-take when I realized DA just introduced this feature.Username changes?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You know, there was a time when I wanted to change my name to ANYTHING other than SonicRocksMySocks. I thought it up when I was 15 without realizing I'd be saddled with that alias for potentially a lifetime.
When I started gaining renown on the internet, there was even a time where I considered making a new DeviantArt account JUST to change my username, but by then my reputation was already cemented. It's silly and childish and doesn't fit a 20-something artist who is trying to get serious about her art...
After working on my 8th DeviantArt anniversary flash and going back to my roots, it sort of dawned on me.
No other username fits me better.
Maybe I was embarrassed of it for a time, but now, after 8 years, there's no way in hell I'd ever be anybody else. My art is ABOUT childhood and youthful spirit, and that's what I remember when I think of my nickname. It reminds me of where I ca

So if you missed the announcement, I'm now one of the Artisan Craft CVs alongside Talty and maytel. I've been banging on for ages about wanting to help out you guys for giving me so much, and now I get to do it in an official capacity.
I'm super excited. And mostly spazzing out right now. I'm gonna take a moment to work out how to use all the bells and whistles and make sure I've got my head around all my roles and responsibilities. I'll be back soon with some DD guidelines so you know what I'm looking to feature.
If you're here for the art, don't worry, nothing's gonna change on that front. Just a lot more time dedicated to showing off many of the other incredible artisans we have hidden around dA. I know a lot of people who've added me have said they never knew there were culinary art or even artisan craft galleries, and some have said they've never
