This Very Day...Yup! This was the day I uploaded my first pony pic on DA. I just said "I'll just draw her and that's it...." Look how that turned out. I want to say is thanks for all the support, comments (good and bad), attending my livestreams etc. This community is amazing. We had our ups, downs, and total oatmeal! I hope it can last a little longer... As long folks like :iconEgophiliac: and :iconWillDrawForFood1: stick around, I'll be here.This Very Day...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also to mark this annivesary. I did a pic of Dashie.

I really appreciate it. Thank you once again.
Text Brush in deviantART muroWe just launched a new tool to Beta Testers that allows you to paint words onto your canvas in deviantART muro!Text Brush in deviantART muro2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The text brush lets you create visual art using words. You can change the text and font from the bottom bar, and you can also set whether or not the text repeats itself continuously. When you click the font button, you'll be prompted with a modal that contains an extensive list of fonts to choose from! The sample text will update based on the font you select, so you can get a sense of what you'll be painting before you paint it.
As an example of the great things you can create with this tool, you can check out mudimba's I Have A Dream, or watch a redraw of mudimba at work creating art!
Try it out!
To give the new text brush a try, head over to devian

My Little Dashie PoemShe came to me like an angelMy Little Dashie Poem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She was beautiful from every angle
Showed up when my life was grim
Poured in a light when mine was dim
She was very young, but really strong
Running around all night long
Only once did she ever speak
Made my heart jump to next week
She kissed my cheek to know she had me
Cutely said "I love you, Daddy"
The day she left, I tried not to cry
But wasn't able the moment she said bye
Mouthing the words with eyes now filled
"I love you, Daddy...I always will"
Now I gaze at her baby pictures
My heart feels it's covered in blisters
The day I found her I remember well
In the wind, it must have been hell
Sitting in that box all alone
The box Read "Give To A Good Home"

I had practically no knowledge of drawing human postures* and did it just for fun. And look where this "fun"** brought me.
There are still things I'm struggling with like color composition, dynamic poses/scenes, perspective and backgrounds. However reading art blogs/tutorials, watching other artists work and practicing on paper and tablet will gradually improve every aspect that I'm having trouble with. I've even made a notebook to draw sketches on the go when I don't have access to tablet (I've never posted anything from its content, I'm too lazy to scan it and clean scans).
So with no point to prove and no lesson to teach I'm ending this entry,

Inside Tumblr lives multiple dark creatures, foul and smelly! These.. 'blog' creatures use Tumblr as their habitat and feeding ground. They are fed by human beings who call themselves bronies.
Mlpartconfessions is a blog designed to 'focus on confessions relating to My Little Pony artwork, artists, OCs and much more! Think of this place as Artist-confessions mixed with the-unpopular-opinions but My Little Pony related.'
I'm in no way having a go at the owner of this blog, but rather the people who submit hateful posts to it. Its disgusting! So many artists, animators and DJs getting awful hate, really nasty stuff. It's not nice. I've seen multiple friends on there (all really nice people) for silly reasons, such as them using bases.
Look, MLP:Friendship Is Magic has a morale. And that morale is in the title, friendship. Not jealousy, hate, abuse

So I hear you's all pumped up for a contest? C:
I'm actually considering making this a regular thing. But I'm gonna wait and see how this one turns out.
I know you're probably all squirmin' in your seats with anticipation, so I think I'll just cut to the chase. The theme of this contest is....
Yes, that's right. Theres no theme! XD You can draw anything you want as long as it follows these rules:
-Must somehow involve Genesis canon. If you don't want to draw one of the Genesis characters, feel free to draw one of the parent couples or just one of the parents within the Genesis universe.
-Must be a brand-new image drawn after today (1-12-12)
-It must be 100%, absolutely completely made by you.
-Can be any medium.
-Must be turned in before February 1, 2012.
So now that you know what you're up against, here's the lovely rewards:

In defence of Mi Amore CadenzaI've noticed a lot of people have been pointing fingers and accusing our new character of being a Sue.In defence of Mi Amore Cadenza3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, first off, I'm going to say that I hate the term Mary Sue. Nowadays, it's passed out like cheap cigars if some character doesn't show some unimaginable level of flaw (or even if they do). To me, it just seems like a tacky label to stick on a character you aren't fond of.
Secondly, consider this; Cadence only had one episode. We were unable to delve much into her personality, backstory, ect. The real Cadence was locked up in caves for the first half of the two-parter, for Pete's sake. Her screen time was spent doing one of several things: Explaining to Twilight what had happened, trying to escape the tunnels to save her fiancee from being married off to a monster, trying to protect fiance from said monster, and then helping fiance save the day. There was no real time for exposition or a lot of character development in the less than 20 minutes she appeared onscreen. There's probabl

You took out your (f/c) Iphone from your back pocket and checked the time. Once it hit 9:00, you had to go home.
From the echos and the noises in the distance, you could see yourself in a horror movie. You found yourself walking
right beside a dark, creepy forest. As you were walking, you could have sworn you heard footsteps behind you, but
every time you looked behind you, nothing was there. You shook your head, thinking you went insane. When you looked
up ahead, you saw someone, just standing there. This was really creeping you out, since it was dark, foggy and you
were the only person outside, well, not now. You wanted to go through the forest to dodge them, but that would just
be useless. You decided to just walk passed them, pretending they're not even there. Once you started walking and
eventually passed them, they grabbed your arm and pulled you back. You gasped as they were gripping onto your arm.

2. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, kill them immediately. It will save you a lot of trouble in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else's voice.
3. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, GET THE HELL OUT!
4. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits. Just get out!
5. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.
6. If you're running from a monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

Hey everyone, hope you are all well.
Thank you all for such a great response to the first challenge. We hope you found it useful as a starting point.
This week, the admin have discussed this weeks challenge and have come to the conclusion that we should split the challenge into a beginner/ advanced category.
For the beginners, they will be given a challenge that will help teach and further advance their drawing knowledge and ability.
For the advanced, they will be given the chance to explore their creative abilities.
Anyone can do either challenge, and it is always welcomed for people to try both challenges.
Both challenges will have the same deadline,
Now that, that is done, onto the challenges.

MLP Resource: Tips + Tricks for Working with MinkyMy Little Pony Plushie StyleMLP Resource: Tips + Tricks for Working with Minky3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What: Minky is a polyester, microfiber fabric that is extremely soft. It is often used in baby blankets and quilts, but also seems to be the fabric of choice for many plushie makers.
(Please keep an eye out for more helpful journals centered around plushie making! More will be made in the future!)
These tools can help make your experience working with minky much easier...
Rotary Cutter: http://www.beverlys.com/olfa-rotary-cutter-28mm.html You can use this to cut the minky directly around your pattern pieces on a flat surface, instead of trying to pin the pattern and hold up the fabric while cutting with scissors. The smaller the blade size, the better, because they go around tight curves easier.
Walking Foot: These sewing machine accessories are very useful. When sewing, because minky is slippery, the fabric may slide around a bit and get off track, making your plushie (or whatever you're making) not as accu

So, this was during my days on Ponychan, when I was just starting out on deviantArt. At that time, I was only just getting used to using PaintTool SAI to make ponies. My first attempt was to make myself a pony version of a character called Neku. It turned out well, and I used him for a while as...a sort of character (even though he wasn't TECHNICALLY mine) Anywho, I'm getting ahead of myself

Damn those MLP faggots!So, I was sitting in my environmental biology class today. These two guys who are seated to my left, both of them sloppy and overweight, begin talking to each other. Obviously they're friends, so I didn't really pay them any mind. Suddenly, the phrase "My Little Pony" caught my attention. I couldn't help but tune in. They began to say things like, "I don't understand why it's so popular. I mean, it's like these people HAVE to be different. I don't see why they have to go out of their way to be 'different'.
