Children of the NightSo, by now I'm sure most of you have seen this already, but it would be remiss of me to not link what may be the single greatest Luna fanwork released.Children of the Night2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was fun to watch the progress this video made to its final release, and the product clearly reflects the time and effort put into it. It is utterly gorgeous.
Enjoy, our Children of the Night

P.S. I felt it appropriate, so I changed "Ponies of the Republic" to "Children of the Night." The folder is still for Luna or Republic related ponies, it just has a better name.
Changing the world through musicSomeone recently brought up an interesting point as they left a comment on one of my YouTube videos. They argued that my talent wasn't very rare, and that everything I've done has already sorta been done before--that I'm not really pushing any boundaries or doing anything new. Tone is often lost or misconstrued over the internet, but it seemed to me that the person leaving the comment was insinuating that I was somehow "less" of an artist, or not quite deserving of praise, simply because I wasn't pushing some sort of boundary with the music I made.Changing the world through music3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a pretty thick skin, but I'll admit that negative comments bother me. They bother every artist. We do what we do to make others happy, and if we fail in that endeavor, it makes us feel bad. Any artist who denies that is either lying, or not in it for the right reasons (in my opinion). That being said, the guy's comment on my YouTube video... kinda bothered me.

All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind. I start from my base pony price and add charges according to how difficult the character is to make. Design elements that add complexity such as difficult or multicolored manes, body markings, and modifications to the basic pattern will add cost. For a full and amus
How to make your very own Helix Fossil PillowThese are INSTRUCTIONS on how to make a Helix Fossil Pillow like the one below. It is not a tutorial and I do not have pictures of the process because I didn't think of it when I was making it, and I'm not going to make another. You will need some previous knowledge of sewing to follow these instructions. I am absolutely not going to teach people to sew - there are lots of resources on the internet if that's what you want. I might add a doodled example pattern later, but that's pretty much all the help you'll get!How to make your very own Helix Fossil Pillow1 year ago in Personal More Like This
0.3 meter (1/2 yd) fabric for the pillow body (I used minky, fleece may also be an option)

As a huge thank you for everyone's support and kind words I am giving you all a chance to win your very own Liluri Creation. There will be THREE winners.
So what's the theme of the Contest?
You simply just need to design something you would like to see me sculpt for you. Maybe you want one of your OC's sculpted in my style to sit by your computer screen and keep you company? Or maybe you have an idea of your own that you think would suit my style of sculpting?
Just please keep in mind that although the sculpt will be following your design, it will be sculpted with my own artistic style. So don't worry about any markings or distinguishing features being changed, I'll follow those perfectly, the final product just won't be your style.. Because otherwise it wouldn't be a Liluri Creation, would it?
You can draw, paint, or even sculpt your idea if you fancy! Both digital and traditi

10 Tips for Taking Better PhotosA good photo is key to selling your plushie online. Your customer can't hold it in their hands and look at it from all angles, so it’s up to you to provide clear, sharp photos that will capture their interest and convince them to buy from you.10 Tips for Taking Better Photos3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Use a tripod. A steady camera means a sharper image, and lets you concentrate on framing the shot. You can get a small, simple, perfectly satisfactory tripod for about $10, or in a pinch you can prop your camera on a flat surface If for some reason you are obliged to hold the camera, grasp it with both hands, draw your elbows in until they touch, press your arms as tightly as possible to your chest, and hold your breath while snapping the photo.
2. Unlike most subjects, plushies aren't going to fidget, so you have plenty of time to compose your shot (if your plushie does start fidgeting, run away as fast as you can and call an exorcist). Make sure the plushie is centered and fills up most of the frame. Most c

FAN ART FRIDAY: Friendship Is Magic
Mane 6 princesses
It’s been over 30 years since the original “My Little Pony” (a.k.a. “MLP”) franchise made its debut and its following has never been stronger.
The 2010 reboot by Lauren Faust (fyre-flye), “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,” had its start on DeviantArt where Lauren originally posted the early concept art which would later evolve into the ponies we know and love today
Thoughts on the Creative CareerThis needs to be shared.Thoughts on the Creative Career2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feel that as I have gotten to know you (my commenting watchers) over the past ten months or so, and a good amount of you seem to want to get into creating art, music, or videos, but struggle with getting past the first step--beginning. In my recent-ish poll "What is your primary roll in the fandom?"; a good amount of comments stated lines such as: "I'd like to be an artist", or "One day I want to start creating music", etc, regardless, I hope this video helps in some way. It certainly did for me.
Hope all is well!

ok where to begin, first off thanks to all that participated! you all had very wonderful artwork! i will be sure to comment and talk about your entry. also i had a few people mention how a public vote can be unfair as others can link other to have them vote on theres, well anyone can do that, also this was linked to equestriadaily so most the votes came from there. also if the vote were to be by a panel of judges people would just complain that we would be ''bias'' as i've have heard all that before.
and again this was for the epic story End of Ponies written by ShortSkirtsandExplosions and this was my way of giving back to him! and i hope he likes how it turned out!
also he is rewriting the entire PETRA arc........meaning i will have to reread it all.....all 40 hours of it! YAY i cant wait! i love endless reading!

My weekend as an artist.Fancy greetings to y'all!My weekend as an artist.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's me, your scrubby, couch potato overlord.
So in my very recent weekends, I deviated from my usual wont of routines. Believe it or not, I spent the day in a library instead of locking myself in a closet playing Diablo 3.
I know, what a ludicrous notion.
I spent most of that day browsing art books and gallery books.
The look on people's faces when I had dozen stacks of books tucked under both arms. Hehe...
While in the midst of my perusal, I would sometimes bust out my sketch book and do life sketching of statue-like people who are so immersed in their readings, they barely moved an inch.
And while I didn't learn anything particularly new that day.
It was a fresh experience to say the least.
Having to observe life in the moment with your very own eyes brings about a feeling more sophisticated and intricate to what reference from internet can bring.
Watching an elderly with his lazy half closed eyes, swaying ever so s

I just want to say thank you (again) to everyone that watched and enjoyed the MLP season finale this weekend. There were lots of hard nights and long hours from all of us on the DHX crew to make it the best would possibly could. Of course, there are things that are always going to be imperfect, but overall from what I gather, it seemed well-received.
I was also shocked at how many people recognized my OC pony that made a small cameo in this weekend's episode. As a blanket response to a lot of the same questions I've been getting all weekend: No, I did not voice her and I'm unsure as to who did. I would assume just one of the regular VA's. She was put in kind of last minute. The artist who drew her in the storyboard, made her look like my pony (just a coincidence), and after seeing i

Concerning One Alicorn TwilightOKAYConcerning One Alicorn Twilight2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I hated alicorn Twilight. The whole concept blew my head-cannon to shit. but the more I thought about it and removed myself from it I came to like it more and more.
Now I personally LOVE the idea.
Not because she is getting an upgrade, not because it fits my head cannon (nonononono my beautiful head-cannon) but because of what it implies for those who the show is actually targeted to.
5 year-old girls.
Twilight is ascending to the throne because she has mastered the elements of harmony, she is loyal, kind, honest, joyful, and generous and because of this she gets to be a PRINCESS
Every little girls wants to be a princess.
So, to them, if they are kind, loyal, honest, joyful and generous THEY GET TO BE A PRINCESS
This will mean that you don't have to be born into princessness, you can BECOME a princess. It takes a lot of work and the help of your friends but eventually they can get there.
So girls (and some lose boys) will realize roles in life aren't s
