Guide: Ponify Your Profile!:icongalaplz: Greetings, my pretty Ponies! :iconbackhug:
Today, I write about how you can ponify your profile When I saw Derpy hovering on leKelBel's profile page, I thought I had overdosed on Ponies But she linked me to StevenRoy's explanation, who points to Fli-c's Journal Entry with detailed instructions. Here is the short version: Click on some widget on your profile page where you can add a description and type in one or more of the following codes:

Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!That last journal was a doozie wasn't it? Let's do something fun instead and get our minds out of the muddy waters of art definitions for a minute.Moving on... CONTEST! WOO!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been asked to do a mini drawing competition. Kinda like what :iconhumon: just did. So here's a really basic run down of the rules in no way copied and pasted from her journal with minor alterations: j/k
The Drawing Competition:
1. Draw any of TomPreston's characters (SYAC, Alex Ze Pirate, or any smaller groups) in London.
2. Upload the image to your dA gallery.
3. Comment on this journal (or the main Fresh Epics comment box) with a link to your image.
- I'll then +Fav/add to collection it.
- I'll look though the collection and pick the winners.
Winners will get Alex Ze Pirate book 2 and SYAC Book 1, plus posters! YAY!
It should go without saying but parodies, trolling, hate art, or explicit sexual stuff = instant disqualifying. I mean, that should be a given but it needs to be said I suppose.
Deadline: A week from today: May 16th.
Internet TimeWe had the Oscars recently and as usual it wasn't without problems. One of the controversies was Chris Rock's biting commentary about doing voice work for animated films, which was unfortunately insulting to the many hard working (yet perpetually unknown) talents who produce about 90% of all voice work in the animated medium. Chris Rock's joke was funny for his circle of friends and the aging academy, but to younger artists and professionals it was very disrespectful. Voice actress Tara Strong took particular issue with Rock's comment and as we speak his twitter account is no doubt being flooded with angry hate messages and likely racism too... which is very unfortunate. http://www.examiner.com/african-american-entertainment-in-national/tara-strong-attacks-chris-rock-over-oscar-2012-animation-comments-quotesInternet Time3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Six Word Story Contest - 7 3 Month Subs to be won!...and the winners are announced here!Six Word Story Contest - 7 3 Month Subs to be won!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and
Haiku Contest! Theme: NatureIt seems to me quite a few of you feel the way I do - there aren't enough opportunities for writers on dA. I do look for prompts and contests and while I do find some gems, I don't find enough to bookmark a number of contests and keep myself writing a little bit everyday.Haiku Contest! Theme: Nature3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
So I'll just start fixing that now. Deadline for this contest is June 12th. Instructions: write a haiku about nature. The idea is to get everyone to try writing a haiku and have an appreciation for the form's potential. Submissions must be original, written for the contest.
I can't emphasize this enough: You MUST send me a note with the link to your poem on dA. You can, in addition, link me to your poem through a comment. I do appreciate people doing both. But the note is necessary, trust me. It makes keeping track of what I've got a lot easier.
Please do link to the contest in the description of the entry. Also, entries must be in English. I can't re
Kiriban AND Raffle (free art and points) The Kiriban~Kiriban AND Raffle (free art and points)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So Ima put up a new kiriban! I still haven't finished the last one, but don't worry. I promise my priorities are in check. >: New kiriban is 10.000 page views, and the winner will get a waist/bust up fully coloured picture and if I haven't already given one to you, a llama. You can only get my kiriban if you are watching me. No this is not a ploy to gain watchers, but for me setting a kiriban is about rewarding your loyal watchers, and it defeats the object to allow someone with no interest in me or my art to win my art, you see? Also, if more than one person wins I will give out multiple prizes. If it is missed the closest to the kiriban wins the prize!
As I said before, I'm feeling generous, so I'm going to do a raffle too! The rules are simple:
For the same reasons listed above you must be watching me. I want to reward people for their interest in my art, not for their entering skills.
Derpy is the Everypony We NeedAll the anti-ableism people that support censoring Derpy Hooves are the real ableists. They are upset that someone dares to be not normal in a cartoon for children because it might offend the special needs children. So who's being the real ableist here? Could it be that you are the person that's offended because you feel guilt? And that you're projecting your own feelings onto others?Derpy is the Everypony We Need3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Edit: My follow up response to comments of: 'think of the children' and the 'in real life why don't you care about...': http://fav.me/d4r6oo1
Good news and bad news. Derpy got the voice we should have had to begin with. The bad, uncrossed eyes and no mention of her name in the episode. Best news: there's now fan versions of the episode that keep the original Rainbowdash conversation and animations, but keeps the new voice. Also the dvd version of the episode is the origi

But I need to know if I have enough supporters to begin, and help spread the message!
ALL THOSE WHO WANT TO HELP, COMMENT PLEASE!
Ok, I think I have enough people to do this.
PLAN OF ACTION:

Two main ways to help out with this.
#1: Spread the word!! Tell your friends to visit this journal, copy the link and post it on pages and artwork telling them about our mission!
#2: Write poems, stories, make videos, anything that tells YOUR STORY! Tell about why us emo/gothic people do not deserve the abuse we do, and include some personal stories if you'd like! This way, the message about how our kin

I've been making my chibis for a while now, and I really enjoy getting to do commissions for all sorts of different characters and cute things.
But lately I've been wanting to expand from just cute chibi people to maybe some furries! I've always admired the craftsmanship that went into big fursuits, and though I'm not a furry myself I have respect for all fandoms/groups so I'd totally love to have a chance to make a little chibi fursona to maybe attract more clients with fursonas. Even though I always say I will accept any commission, most people would still like to see an example first. Which I totally understand, but I just don't know where to start as far as furries go! And it would b

A proposal to DA for better vector format supportRight now, a majority of our vector artists submit their work in two pieces, with the PNG file as the download link, because DeviantArt doesn't handle vector files very well if you upload them as your deviation. Wouldn't it be amazing if a my little pony group got DA to add proper support for vector files?A proposal to DA for better vector format support3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If DeviantArt could automatically create rasterized versions of SVG images (ideally PSD and AI files as well), members would no longer have to upload two versions of their work. Instead, DA could support a system like Wikipedia uses (called HTTP content negotiation) to make rasters of SVGs at different resolutions.
Here's an example of it in action: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b4/Reddit_logo.svg/3000px-Reddit_logo.svg.png change the value for "px" to get another size, up to about 6,000px.

The Reputation of Bronies- EDIT- Derpy Hooves[EDIT]The Reputation of Bronies- EDIT- Derpy Hooves3 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

What's the issue?
The .art top level domain will soon be made available. A corporation will be assigned to manage it. That means that, besides .com, .org, .nl, .tv etc. people will also be able to make websites as www.websitename.art. This would mean a great opportunity for artists and art supporters alike to create art portfolios, websites that help artists in some way, etc.
This can bring great improvements to the art world, if managed well.
That is where the potential trouble starts About a dozen companies have applied to manage .art. However, most of them are large companies hoping to make big profit. Most of these companies have nothing to do with

For a while now, it's never occurred to me how proud I am to be a furry. I think it's kind of a big deal to be a furry, and it's hard for me to think otherwise. I'm not going to lie, there was a time when I was like most, banishing people to the corners of the internet for even showing interest in anthropomorphic animals, so why am I now so proud to be seen as a furry? Follow me on my journey through the fandom, and my own psyche, to hopefully open up some much needed answers to questions related to the furry fandom.
My story starts in an odd place I suppose. It was on the internet where I first heard the words "yiff" and "fursuit", but as you can imagine, that's not what's strange about my introduction to the furry fandom. I started off thinking of furries as just wierdos with a fetish for animal people, but I couldn't help myself growing to like them the more I delved into their world. What makes it odd is because, when I look
