Animation Job FAQ
Q: How can I get a job in animation?
The absolute best thing you can do to get into animation as a career is to go to art school. Not only will you learn how to draw and how to SEE, you will meet people, students and teachers alike, who will give you new perspectives and will likely be the sources of your future jobs. (My first job came from one of my teachers.)
There are several schools that have fantastic animation programs that cover all facets of the atr form. Schools like the one I attended, CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS, will teach you animation (2D and 3D,) character design, storyboarding, bac

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

It's been a while since I last posted a journal. But I've decided to hold out until today where I released 5 animated portraits.
Me and a small band of people have been working on expanding this project into creating a... how do I say this. A "Mod?" It works to replace some aspects of the game including:
Loadout, Best Hero screen and Hero Selection screen (unfortunately ingame animated portraits is not possible for now)
Instruction on how to use for those interested:
1. Download the following file http://www.mediafire.com/download/ybtn7ej62vza6t4/MyLittleDotaModFiles.rar
2. Extract the .rar file at the following directory: \steam\steamapps\common\dota2beta\dota\resource\flash3\
3. Open Steam Library, right click dota 2 and select properties
4. Set Launch options and enter: -override_vpk
5. Run game and see if it works

There are videos about the two songs in the season 3, the animation looks really good, GREAT JOB STUDIO B ♥
So if you want to know what will have on the season 3 ♥♥♥ :
Trixie's return was "confirmed" with a "I think we're not allowed to say, but I will expect season three to maybe see some great and powerful stuff". after someone asked if she would be returning. (yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes)
There was a great section about Derpy. Someone asked if she would be receiving anymore speaking roles, and the response basically said Hasbro loves Derpy, they have her everywhere now, but she probably wont be able to roll with anything other than background shots. You guys scared the poor girl!
Octavia's section was a question about "Which background pony would you like to voice?". This eventually lead to a shoutout for Octavia, where Cathy Weseluck just out of nowhere busted out an awesome

Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:
1. WHERE IS IT SOLD? This will be sold along all the other comics
Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit
Love is a Lie.I've learn that the hard way. When I learned my long distance girlfriend died, I thought I actually lost someone I loved, but the truth is, she never existed. She and her brother was all a ruse played by a someone I wish to not have contact with anymore. What's worse, in my state of depression, I tried to take my life multiple times. Today I was about to do again, this time, I left a note to my friend that I'm going to do it. I made them worried, and for that, I am sorry.Love is a Lie.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I failed to take my life again thanks to my mother, I received a call from my lawyer who told me the truth. There was no record of Angelica Gainnes in the United States. My depression turned to full rage and I texted "her brother" to know the truth. My mind was blinded that I forgot about that note I left for my friends, so they thought I was in danger. When I finally got the truth and explain them the situation, I said some stupid things. I told them that I never felt love for "Ange", that I was playing "her" game
New Pony-models got released!oogaboogaman released his new (and updated) version of the GMod-pony-pack!New Pony-models got released!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of the changes (copy-paste from the Facepunch-thread, link below):
- Completely redone ponies from previous pack - redone physics, shaders, and textures.
- Redone physics - ponies shouldn't go crazy.
- Optimized the base pony model - lower polycount and optimized the mane six and other ponies' default textures from KP-ShadowSquirrel. One canon pony shouldn't take up 8 gigs of memory anymore.
- Reskins and existing OCs are able to easily transfer their skins from the older models.
- Added season 2 Luna with an experimental mane for transparency (change with skin changer tool.) Also kept season 1 Luna.
- Celestia and Luna have bodygrouped horn, wings, crown, collar, and shoes for potential OCs.
- Applejack has a bodygrouped hat as well as a separate hat prop.
- Trixie has a bodygrouped cape and hat as well as separate hat and cape models.
- Trixie cape model is actually poseable this time and can be plac

Last March, I proclaimed "what the hell, I'm going to write a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfic." I took those words, and posted them on the Internet for thousands to read, thousands to judge me by, and even left the door open for thousands to potentially drop a comment about how sour a turn my life must've taken to have consciously confessed to the Internet, with my real first and last name adorning the top of my dA page, that I actually had aspirations and ambitions to writing fanfiction for My Little Pony. Now whenever a future employer does a background check on me, they will learn that I was so moved by a show made for little girls that for the first time in my life I wanted to write fanfiction for it. &
