If you're among the deviants who follow me for my stamps and use them actively, this may be of interest to you:
My stamps can now be used anywhere you wish outside of deviantART, like in forum signatures and such, and for derivative works, both on and off dA.
But first, make sure to read each stamp's description carefully, because CC licenses have conditions that need to be respected, and if you have questions, doubts, or need clarifications, don't hesitate to ask me.
This said, go ahead and have fun spreading some stamp love! ;3
Coding Tips for Images:
when adding a stamp to your forum signature, blog, etc... use this HTML code:
<a href="URL address"><img src="Image URL address" title="Name of Image">• Replace URL address with the url of the deviation page - with this, when you click on the stamp you will be brought back to the original deviation page;
• Replace Image URL address with the actual stamp image url, which
For you Horsey fans!Hey all! I needed a new account dedicated to horses, my photography and my drawings. EVERYTHING HORSE!For you Horsey fans!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This of course links to the formation of my official company. That's right "Cinnamon Studios" is a REAL company. My own STUDIOS! (Yes, it cost a bit of money to set up, heh...but it was essential for any future work I produce)
NOTE! THIS NEW ACCOUNT is targeted at those that want to see only horsey based stuff!
So, why decide to make a new account?
-Everything on OMG-Chibi is cluttered
-This username doesn't relate to things like "CinnamonStudios" does... (Links to CinnamonMewMew, my company, my Model Horse Blab account)
- CinnamonStudios sounds more professional
So please make sure you watch my new account! I've already put up some "never-before-seen" photos and new concepts for Conquering Tide!
So there you have it.

LIIIIIFFFFFFEEEEEEE HURR.Hey all! Wow, where do I start. It's been absolutely CRAZY!!! The whole moving into the new flat, being in London, starting uni, animation stuff, making new friends...

By the way, the Conquering Tide models are now available from:
Which leads me to an interrogative;
I've noticed there's a HUGE difference in watchers. Some want the horsey stuff, others don't, and want to see more game art and non specifically horsey related stuff...
Now this account was never really meant to link with my You Tube stuff, it was meant to be independent, for my general art...
Now, I have a LOAD of model horse photography from months ago that I haven't got around to releasing (even though many are requesting they'd like to see more)... but also I have this other rather large issue (that has been holding me back on the Model horse stuff) regarding the fact that many of my watchers d

Western Isles Breeding Season - OPENCurrent Breeding Season:Western Isles Breeding Season - OPEN2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the chilly months of autumn and winter, things get a little heated in the fawnling herds. It's rut, the breeding season, where stags may fight to win glory and mates, and does swoon about and watch on from the sidelines. Or maybe the does are the ones fighting over their favourite stag. Who knows! All we know is that during rut, tempers are short and emotions are running high.
What you need to know
- The breeding season runs from the beginning of autumn thru to the end of winter. 8D
- The gestation period (pregnancy) lasts for 2 seasons in game, which is the same as 2 real life months.
- All breedings must be made official through role play (see below).
- Fawns are born exactly 2 real life months after the official breeding note been posted to the group.
- If a stag is 5 or more hands taller than the doe, the doe and fawn run the risk of serious injury / death due to complications (randomly rolled by staff members).
- If the fawn
Photomanipulation: Exploring textureTexture: We love it!Photomanipulation: Exploring texture3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
If there's one thing a lot of photomanipulators love, it's texture, glorious texture! Texture can change your entire image and make it or break it. In our community, it is frequently used for creating a "dark" effect, but it can be used to create or enhance absolutely any theme you can dream up. I wanted to share some brilliant examples of art that use textures well. I also want to provide some tips of things I've learned and direct you to some tutorials.
Let's get started!

Tips for success
Use textures to highlight positive assets of the manipulation; don't use them to try to cover flaws of poor blending or cropping.
If you take commissions for DA Points......please be cognizant of the value of points compared to real money.If you take commissions for DA Points...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
400 DA Points cost US$ 5 to buy.
That's 80 points per dollar.
This means that if you are offering an art commission for, say, $10, you should NOT be offering the same commission for 100 points. You should be charging at least 800 points.
If you are aware of the exchange rate and yet still undercharge for points when compared to real dollars, I suppose that's your prerogative as an artist. But you're really just giving others a way to take advantage of you by paying you in points instead of cash, even when they are fully capable of the latter.
Those looking to commission artists with points should, of course, be aware of the exchange rate, too. I have seen many people complain about artists asking for 300 points for their artwork... not realizing, of course, that it's only $3.75!
And, of course, the same applies when paying in different real currencies around the world. Make sure you check your exchange rates.

Wise WordsSomeone posted this on Tumblr today:Wise Words3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was just what I needed. Part of the reason I've been having trouble making time for art is because, in the back of my head, I know what I draw will not even come close to the picture in my head. Right now, I'd say that I'm closer to being 10-20 years behind. But if I can close the gap to just 5 years, it'll be worth all the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.
I also thought this quote could be applied to any creative field, including writing. I'm a much more polished writer than I used to be, but I still struggle getting the right words, the right style, the right tension to create on paper the mini-film I see in my mind. And once I improve, my brain is already coming up with more complex stories that I don't have the skills yet to transcribe properly.
Anyway. I think the lesson today is yes, we'll never reach the pinnacle, but it doesn't mean we stop climbing. Better is always better, even if it's not what we want it to be.

I've started a new You Tube channel called:
It's aimed at the general You Tube audience...and NO I'm not quitting the model horse movies, I'll just be moving to London in September, and won't be able to do any model horse series filming until X-mas (Don't worry, you'll definitely have Season 1 of Conquering Tide complete this summer, and Episode 1 of Season 2 coming in October.
So I wanted to be able to film SOMETHING.
If you like/follow channels like Onision, ShaneDawson, Tobuscus, AmazingPhil and danisnotonfire, then you'll love what I do!
But yeah, I'd like to show the other creative stuff I do. Also, how awkward I am! It's also aimed at late-teens +, so if you're easily offended, or very young, then perhaps it's not for you.
So if you could spread the word, share, subscribe and like... I'll LOVE YOU FOREVERRRRRRRRR!!!

Tagged by :iconSam-Ryan-King18: LET'S DO THIS!
Facts about me:
1). My favourite colour is Red.
2). I have bad circulation, so my hands and feet are always freezing. They go so numb while drawing or writing sometimes, that I actually have to sit on them for a few minutes.
3). I may not show it often, or verbally state it, but I'm highly competitive.
4). As soon as I wake up after a night's sleep, I feel absolutely wide awake, then after about 30 minutes I feel like I've had no sleep at all.
5). I have this strange habit, I don't know how to describe it, maybe a mild case of OCD, but I find I need to change the order of things. This can be as little as just moving figures into a different order...all the way to the extremes of moving all the furniture in my room around! But I feel I have to. Everything has to by tidy, so no chaos or mess... but still, it's like I get bored of seeing things in the same order. Weird.
6). I'm an introvert.
7). I thin

ISI Glorious Knight
Knight is very calm and collected in the arena. He knows his job and he does it well. Perfect form over jumps and performs textbook dressage moves. Loves to be in the spotlight so he's not very happy with another horse in the arena at the same time as him. Will actually try to one-up the other horse in the same arena. While this actually improves his performance, its also dangerous.

This is actually a serious journalI know the last thing deviantArt needs is more sappy 'I love you' journals, but I'm overcome with feels now and I've been wanting to thank you guys for awhile.This is actually a serious journal3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to thank pretty much everyone I know on deviantArt. I also want to thank those that only briefly skimmed over my artwork, even if they didn't look at another single thing in my gallery or did not add me to their watch. Because every single view, favorite or watch I've gotten, makes my heart swell. It gives me the esteem and determination to continue posting my art publicly, because just knowing that more than one stranger somewhere out in the big wide world supports me, who I most likely have not or ever will cross paths with, is amazing. Someone who I know is not pitying me because they know me in real life, or are related to me (and therefore are 'obligated' to lie about the quality of my work). It's great. I like how people give me an honest opinion, aided by the lack of a face or guilt from looking someone in t
Horse Leasing - Now HiringSaw this idea by the awesome noebelle and couldn't help myself, I had to try it too! I have so many horses in my stables that I can't possibly get to all of them in a timely fashion, so all horses will be up for negotiable (show) lease. This is a little different to traditional leases however, in that you nominate a staff member for the horse that you request to lease, and they work for Willowglen during the lease period as a sort of exchange. You will be paid for your troubles of course.Horse Leasing - Now Hiring3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most leases are for one month (real time), but may be extended if your rider is doing especially well
In each lease period you are asked to draw your lease horse at least 3 times, with a minimum of 1 full show or training image. This isn't too strict if you run out of time, you just won't be paid for any uncompleted images.
The payment for each image varies; shows are worth 50 , trainings (full body w. rider and tack) 40 , fullbody 30 oint
