In _____ We TrustIn response to a recent petition, the phrase "In God We Trust" will stay on US currency. The reasoning included these points:In _____ We Trust2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"While the President strongly supports every American's right to religious freedom and the separation of church and state, that does not mean there's no role for religion in the public square."
"A sense of proportion should also guide those who police the boundaries between church and state. Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation - context matters.
"That's why President Obama supports the use of the words "under God' in our Pledge of Allegiance and "In God we Trust' on our currency and as our national motto. These phrases represent the important role religion plays in American public life, while we continue to recognize and protect the rights of secular Americans.

Pixel art is defined by deviantART as: "Pixel art drawing, using only the pencil tool, hand laying individual pixels one at a time, under high magnification." (But more on that later ) ClefairyKid and I have put together a week of articles and events that we hope will be informative, interesting and fun.

I will only take 5 commissions at a time. (These do not include icon commissions)

Reposting our art can get you a free keyI get a lot of people asking if it's ok to repost our stuff on sites like Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and other social media sites.Reposting our art can get you a free key9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Not only is it ok if you repost our work, but it's very, very much appreciated. Obviously so long as you credit us, please (linking to our shop is much appreciated). It basically draws more people to us, so we really really love when people do this.
A few weeks ago we had someone on here repost some of our keys on Tumblr. It got a lot of attention and drew a lot of people to our shop. I finally tracked down who it was and gave them a free key (thank you again, FrozenNote ). Then I thought, I wonder how many other people are reposting our stuff. I see it a lot of places (and I would say 95% of the time they credit us) but it's hard to find who posts them.
So, I wanted to put it out there that if anyone ever reposts our stuff and links to our shop and their post gets a lot of attention (let's say 1,000 likes on Facebook or 1,000 notes on Tumblr)

Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!
What is a Base?
Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that
I Need a Little Help from My FriendsWell more of an opion really.I Need a Little Help from My Friends2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been thinking of changing the name of my person OC (the one trotting at the bottom). Right now he is called Brass Arrow. The name came form a mix of a name generated by a MLP name generator at rum Monkey and the metal I think of when I say steampunk. The original generated name became the main focus of my fan fiction starring Steel Arrow.
If any of your read this what do you think keep it or change with something else? If enough interest is show I post up another journal (because you need a premium account to make a poll) with some of my options.
Luna EclipseWow that Luna episode. Not quite the voice I imagine little to high pitched and not as soft as I imagined. Well at lest one of our theories was correct she does seem like a trickster, and she just trying to fit in but a lot has changed in 1000 and she just trying what she remembers to be the norm. But that leaves one question what has she been doing for over a year? Unless the episode are not in chronological order in the airing time line.Luna Eclipse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this episode could in pony universe time it could have taken place right after she came back so ponies could have been still scared of her. But in the past season there is really no proof to support my theory in full. But it would explain a lot of the trouble she had during the celebration one year after her return.
By no means does this take away from the episode. It will be in my top five favorites. Viva the new lunar republic.

Out With the old and in with a Rewrite.So yeah I was going through a little writing slump for the past two months or how ever long since I posted my last chapter. So I was trying my hoof art some drawing and digital art to try and get my writing mojo working again. I was reading over what I had written and thought is was pretty bad. So I throw out most of the first half of the chapter and I am currently rewriting it. I will be a little while until I am able to get the next chapter out.Out With the old and in with a Rewrite.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

KING SOMBRAWhy don't we flesh out Sombra a little more. After watching Season 3 twice I honestly feel the more I watch Sombra the more I'm starting to like him. Yes he definitely needs improvement. But I feel everypony is judging him way too harshly. Lets look at the things everyone is complaining about him.KING SOMBRA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Screentime: Sombra is barely seen throughout the whole episode except for a few scenes while he's looming over the Empire and when he finally enters. However, I feel even though his face wasn't shown he was in there deep in the minds of the Crystal Ponies. The Crystal Ponies quivered in fear at the mention of his name. All through the episode the Mane Six are trying to cheer them up, however Sombra uses his magic to slowly infect the empire bringing fear to the Crystal Ponies. Sombra's action is what counted through the lack of screen time. He didn't need to show himself all the time. His actions and ways of bringing terror and fear was enough for him.
2. Barely any voice lines: Yes, Sombr
A Message From Your Feline OverlordsA Message From Your Feline Overlords2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Leaderless Revolution for the 21st CenturyA little while ago, I read a book called The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century by Carne Ross, a former member of the British Foreign Office and delegate of the UK mission to the UN who left his job after seeing how so-called "representatives" represent themselves and the interests of their biggest supporters (such as multinational corporations) rather than the people of the society who elected them or who they were appointed to represent. Ross believes that this removal of agency from the people themselves to representatives, and the alienation it causes, is responsible for much of the conflict in the world. Therefore, he supports a leaderless consensus-based directly democratic government, i.e., anarchism. He gives precedents for this type of government in societies from pre-industrial tribes to the anarchist communes of Spain in the 1930s, the latter being the subject of George Orwell's panegyric HoLeaderless Revolution for the 21st Century2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hey guys! There's a bit of a nasty rumor spreading throughout the community that the staff will be removing 'wasted' accounts on May 21st, and that you should copy and paste the 'warning' to your journal if you want your account to be safe from deletion. This is totally false and should not be spread around dA. If you happen to see a misinformed deviant sharing that information in their journal feel free to link them to my journal here.

Why artists get so pissed off --"Why do you artists always get so pissed off when someone uses your artwork? You should take it as a compliment!"Why artists get so pissed off --6 days ago in Personal More Like This
"You should take it as a Compliment --"
A compliment would be admiring an artist's work where they post it, and if you really want to use it that badly, complimenting them would be you having enough respect for them to ask first.
Most of us don't get mad because you use it, it's because you use it without asking or pretend you didn't know who/where it came from when there's a link to where you can find the original artist on the image.
Taking someone's car to crash it in a derby isn't a compliment to them any more than taking someone's art to wreck it or claim it is a compliment. More so without asking.

The loathsome creature devoid of honor that goes by the name of Pugbun has crossed the line! This vile creature steals socks, doesn't flush the toilet, and what's worst of all, slurps while drinking tea. This and many other breaches of good manners escalated to the point at which I was forced to declare war! Stand by my side my brothers and sisters! For socks! For tea! For flushing!
The peace between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia lasted for many years but it's over now! Pick a side and help your army defeat the enemy once and for all!
If your bravery and artistic input will be enough to harm our opponent you'll be handsomely rewarded for your deeds!
If you are caught collaborating with the enemy though, you'll be thrown into the poisonous hamster pit!
Your task is to take part in the war between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia. To do so you have to create a piece of artwork that depicts the victory of Pugbun/
