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
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 colors9 months 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.2 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!2 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

Save Our DerpySave Our Derpy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
No doubt you’ve all seen or heard the hullabaloo around Ye Olde Intertubes in the days and weeks following our beloved Derpy’s named appearance in the FIM episode The Last Roundup. What began as a campaign by trolls wreak havoc was soon picked up by well-meaning-but-misguided bronies and fans. The controversy stems from the mistaken belief that the word “derpy” is synonymous with mentally challenged. Obviously, it’s not. Rather it means clutzy or accident prone. Further, fans maintained that her slightly-husky voice in the episode was an attempt to mock people with learning disabilities. Again, untrue. Voiced by actor Tabitha St. Germain, Derpy was mistakenly thought to be a boy pony and was based on a young boy who lives next door to Ms. St. Germain.
This tempest in a teapot stirred up around the fandom has now exploded into what seems to be a PR-pushback by Hasbro.

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. &
Drawing encouragementHey guys,Drawing encouragement10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just got back from drawing workshop. Helped a few struggling students. Thought I could lift some spirits and confidence with advice given to me from my instructors.
Don't feel like you need to rush through a drawing because it's a " short " pose. What's the point of getting everything in if the placements and relationships are wrong? That's counterproductive and you're teaching yourself how to draw bad. Take your time. Look twice; mark once. Be loose but not sloppy. Remember that more lines don't equal a better drawing.
If you have an instructor that's telling you to draw a certain way that does not work for you. Still try it. Learning what NOT to do and what does not work for you is just as important. They're helping you to learn what habits to NOT develop.
If you feel yourself panicking because you think you're doing a bad drawing, take a breath and calm yourself. It's just drawing, have fun. Reme

Usually, I'm okay that a person would leave our group every once in a while...but FOUR MEMBERS IN ONE DAY?
I am so sorry for sounding upset, but I sort of am.
Our group has gone this far, and we were so proud when we exceeded more than 1,000 members. I hoped we could make it to 2,000.
All I ask is...WHY are they leaving? And WHAT can we do to improve this club so we don't let it happen too often?
I ask you, our dear members, what we should do?
A contest, perhaps? I realize we haven't had one in a while...
