Don't tell me to use my real name...just tell me not to be an ass!Don't tell me to use my real name2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This new trend in social networks, and even communities, out there on the web, requiring you to use your real name: it's really bothering me.
There are a bunch of undertones to it: it's proper, professional, probably prevents fraud or something, but whenever anybody talks about it, it's always about how anonymity encourages bad behavior.
Being tied to your real name suppresses bad behavior. The bad behavior was already there. If I'm a brat on the Internet, it's not because I'm anonymous - it's because it's fun. But here's what's more fun:
I choose to be nice. It's nice to be nice. Forums and chatrooms and art communities are fun when you're not being an ass.
One thing I love about deviantART is that you have to agree to the terms of service AND the etiquette policy when you join.

EFR Interview + More animation info.OK guys, I have been getting a LOT of questions about my latest Rarity animation...EFR Interview + More animation info.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
While I'd love to answer your questions, the simple fact is I can't... Some VA's prefer their privacy and my Rarity VA is one of them.
For those of you who may be confused about this, let me explain something:
The VA's who work on MLP;FiM have a contract with Hasbro that prevents them from doing fan work. If they were to break this contract they could get in serious trouble! Even if a VA from the show was crazy enough to voice a fan animation, they certainly couldn't tell anyone!
So may I ask that you keep those kinds of questions to a minimum? (Especially on Youtube!)
Even if it's not true, Hasbro could think it is and Tabitha could get in trouble out of the blue. Imagine how confusing THAT would be!
Anyway, yeah... It's a silly little game. Unfortunately, we all have to play it...
Let's keep this fandom awesome and not betray the trust and ge

An awesome gesture from the communityI didn't want to talk about this here at all because of the holiday season and all the stuff going on, but I had a rough time recently and had been considering disbanding the group due to thinking I wasn't able to put enough in it to make it fun for most everyone. It made me really disheartened and I lost sleep over it; PMD-e is a gigantic part of my life, and running it was super fun until I got the idea that it wasn't fun for others anymore. Well, I ended up going through my Japan trip trying not to think about it, and somewhat planning out some more stuff I had in mind. Then I got back from my convention this weekend to find.. well, to find something really great from a good number of you guys.An awesome gesture from the community2 years ago in Personal More Like This

On fandom, fans, and trollsI just flew in from Seattle, and I had a great time. In many ways it was one of the best cons I've been to. For my own part, everyone I met and encountered, from staff to attendees to VAs to friends old and new, were positive and the people incredibly kind and brilliant. I was witness to countless incidents of generosity and honesty and solidarity. Rarely have I smiled so hard or as often in the company of so many good people and admirable fans.On fandom, fans, and trolls2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But, sadly, it seems not every experience this past weekend was so positive.
Before My Little Pony I had no real experience with the concept of fandom beyond what I read with horror, and, admittedly a certain amount of amusement on internet websites and forums. But here I am, happily lost in a sea of technicolor unicorns and pegusi. I can't say I've been part of the MLP fandom since it began, I was actually somewhat late to the world of ponies.

Art and perfectionismDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and perfectionism1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Perfectionism can be a good and a bad thing at the same time. We strive for it, but sometimes the result doesn't exceed our expectations. And that's okay.
Not every single artwork you make has to be a masterpiece. Make some sketches, speedpaints, studies - just do something. See your flaws, be aware of them - and work on them. Don't put yourself down with negativity. It never helps. It takes time to learn, to gain new skills and make art. Through many hours of work we achieve what we want. And it takes time.
It's so easy to give up. To think - what's the point in doing this, if the artwork is never perfect. Art doesn't have to be always perfect, it has to be made. We have to get used to the fact that we'll never be good enough - there is a beauty in that, because we have something to strive for, to experience and observe.
Making art is difficult and yet it's fun. En

Also, new rule about assignments: if you have, for example, 3 ponies at Pegasi High, you DON'T need to do each assignment for each of them (so 9 assignments because you have 3 ponies & 3 assignments). You CAN do each assignment for each of them if you want to, but it is not required. As long as you do each assignment at least once, you're fine.
Another new rule about assignments: instead of assignments being due 1 week after they are assigned, all 3 assignments per month will be due at the end of that month. So, all of

Atom is a rascal and he is a badboy which ive tried to draw him as, and this just hit the nail so perfectly xD I can feel the frustration of the other characters trying hard to get that apple while Atom just grabs one not bothering to help haha! Totally deserved the first place! xD And also the characters showing diffrent feelings is amazing! 8D congtats winner of 3000

Mission 7 Plans (Now with ??? Mission 7 stuff)Okay! For those of you who don't know, in the PMD-Explorers storyline, Jasmine the Celebi has been held hostage by Shade the Zoroark, and PK and friends have gathered a super-quick rescue party to try and save her. But when they try to do so, things go horribly wrong, and as a last line of defense, Jasmine uses a super-massive Teleport attack, teleporting away a lot of people in the near vicinity and the 2nd and 4th members of every single PMD-E team, no matter where they were. But the admins didn't reveal until two weeks later that they were taken to about 200 or so years in the past. That means that Chikorita, Ralts, and Psyme the Beheeyem have been temporarily separated from my teams! Chikorita and all Merchants have been sent to the Prismatic Jungle (where they have to rescue Sherri the Cherrim and escape from the crazy jungle itself), Ralts and all Rogues have been sent to the Creeping Forest (where they have to rescue a badly wounded and confused JasmineMission 7 Plans (Now with ???

In regards to cancellation of art in schools...After a recent visit to an exhibition at The School of Visual Arts, I realized how bad the problem was.In regards to cancellation of art in schools...4 months ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of schools either
a. have really bad art and music programs
b. are closing them down because of budget cuts (Like my old high school)
At SVA there was a lot of posters that were advertising that,
Hit everyone pretty much.
But, people are reacting as though schools are the ONLY source of art.
Which isn't true.
So, if any of you guys have really bad art programs
Like they did in my high school
Or closing ones.
I really encourage you to spread the word of deviantart or make an art club.
Creativity isn't something that should be thought of as an "extra" subject.
It's the future.
Without it we stay in a perpetual state.
It copies what is written and drawn from fantasies of people thought of as "insane"

PEAS Method to Artistic Self-improvementI came up with the PEAS method ("PEAS" stands for: Practice, Experiment, Ask for suggestions, & Study the world around you) about 5 years ago. In that time, I've seen significant changes in my own art and in the art of others! I figured that it's time to whip up a journal and share the PEAS method again.PEAS Method to Artistic Self-improvement3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Practice - it's been said time and time again that "practice makes perfect". They're right, but there need to be a few other factors to make it work!

On: Illustration, Comics, and Story TellingDon’t suck -- PKOn: Illustration, Comics, and Story Telling2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to say first of all that sometimes I get people asking, or rather complaining, “why does it seem like the comics always get a better score? This group seems so focused on comics. What if I just want to draw pictures?”
Well, that ends up tying into narrative illustration, which is a pretty hard thing to do right if you’re used to drawing single shots of your character against a plain, white background. Most people end up doing comics because it seems easier right away: the characters can talk, you can set the scene, it doesn’t require a little description at the bottom...
But, even comics require some know-how to pull off really well. It’s just harder to pull off illustrations in this story-based environment, because comics make it a little less apparent when it’s not doing a very good job at telling that story.
But, I’ll get to comics second.

They'll be headshots by the way.
It can be anything, as long as it's human (EDIT, What I mean by this is I can't draw animals, I can draw vampire, demon, angel, neko, anything, just not full on animals. If you aren't sure if it qualifies just ask and I'll let you know ^.^ ) .
If it is male, I will try, but he will probably look feminine so I hope you're okay with that XD
This will be great, as it will help me develop my style!
I'll be doing as many of these as possible btw, inspired by twin-tail 's free portrait idea.
I will not get all of these done immediately, but I will do them in any spare time that I have :3
I will be saving the ref's and putting them in a folder, so they will be done in alphabetical order, so if you were the first to comment and your's isn't the first done, don't worry, I'll get there hunny bunches!
