I want this to be the best possible so I would love, if you feel so inclined, if you'd check it out.Preview: My Little Pony, The Infographic2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been working on this for a week and a half straight so I've completely lost the ability to see anything wrong with it anymore. I think it's awesome, but I welcome ideas for improvement and such. Note that I completely ran out of creative juice and didn't make a nice title. I still need to do come up with something snazzy to put at the top
I'm accepting ideas or even designs if you want to contribute.
After I've heard any suggestions and figured out what to do for a title, I'm going to post it to my gallery and provide it as a poster for people to buy and put up on their wall at home, work, or where ever else someone gives them crap for watching. T

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised
Send me 3D, Sci-fi or Space Art DD Suggestions!Please help spread the word by adding this blog to your favsSend me 3D, Sci-fi or Space Art DD Suggestions!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
deviantART has given me the opportunity to perform two Community Volunteer positions here:
I am the Science Fiction and Space Art Community Volunteer.
I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?
Would you like to put a smile on someones face and make their
F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)Well, here's the scoop-About Alicorn Twilight (and Recent comments)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Get used to it, because she's here to stay. And not just in the show.
We're introducing the updated version of season three's Twilight Sparkle into the comics as well.
We're asked about 5th person at our tables: "what do you think?" "Why did they do that?" "Are you gonna.." etc.
Since we work hand in hand with Hasbro, we never had any intention of NOT updating Twilight for the books as well.
And quite frankly... we are all about it!
Neither Katie Cook nor myself understand the hatred going on for having Twilight become a princess. Katie has made an outstanding point- Twilight may be the only popular character to have EARNED her crown... she worked for it, suffered for it, and it was awarded. She didn't marry into it, wasn't born into it (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, etc etc). That gives little girls a character that WORKED FOR WHAT SHE EARNED. One helluva example I think. And for Katie, with a little girl and another on the way... that's a great t
I want to tell you a story...About an attempt by Google to compete with a social sharing website. With it, users could share videos, status messages, conversations, etc. It was called "Google Buzz" It was launched February 9th and discontinued December 15th, 2011. Less than two years later and almost no one knows that it ever existed. If they did they'd probably me even more pissed about this Google+ shit than they are already.I want to tell you a story...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's biggest criticism was it's lack of consideration for user privacy, and that's pretty odd because Google Buzz didn't ask users for their real name to completely attempt to destroy anonymity. Google Buzz publicly disclosed a list of names of contacts that the user had most frequently emailed or chatted with. It obviously resulted in a wave of negative publicity. How does Google decide to fix this problem? "Let's not fix the privacy concerns. Let's just force our users into this."
A lot of people tend to be defending Google+. As far as I know, none of them are content creators. Maybe I ca

The Molestia Thing and Tumblr JusticeThe Molestia Thing and Tumblr Justice1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sexual exploitation is no joke, we all understand that. Having volunteered at a rape crisis center, I’ve heard heartbreaking stories and seen lives devastated by rape and sexual assault.
I applaud ANYONE concerned about these issues and willing to help with time and money. BUT trying to take down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies doesn’t amount to fuck-all. And sending someone money for a tee-shirt “supporting” taking down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies means even less than fuck-all.
If you want to lend assistance to something that matters, visit the websites of these 4-star rated charity organizations dealing with matters of rape, sexual exploitation, and women’s justice. Make a donation, volunteer your time, do something that MATTERS. Don’t be a tumblr warrior, be an actual hero and make a big damn difference.
Dead animal turns its head and looks into camera..Ughhh haha, I didn't expect this much feedback.. er please read this before reading this.Dead animal turns its head and looks into camera..2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
and then this...
If you have the guts I didn't, to watch the whole video,
then even if you stopped halfway, you'll see the eyes of a raccoon dog, skinned alive, stare into the camera, while clinging to its hopeless life.
For clarification, I am not in anyway a supporter nor am I affiliated with PETA.
So if PETA is another concern and problem, then it's just another one we'll have to fix.
And yes, this specific one is staged, but my point isn't that this is how people skin animals, it's that these animals are dying REGARDLESS of the cause and reason behind it.
I'm not one of those spokespersons; who comes to your school or town, to make you sit as I try to make a serious topic into something fun and enjoyable to my audience.
I'm not hear to entertain you.

(as I wake up to this $hitstorm of a news) I found out that Mane6's coolest and widdy slap stick comedy fighting game "My Little Pony Fighting is Magic" is being taken down with a Cease and Desist from our buddys at Hasbro. Why? What did they ever do wrong besides use the logos, the characters for a NON PROFIT project. Meaning they would not make money off of the thing. Further more what bugs me the most is Hasbro stated they were using trademarks and chara

HEY DO YOU LIKE GIVEAWAYS? I LIKE GIVEAWAYS. LET'S DO A GIVEAWAY.
SO HERE'S THE THING
Up until Saturday, November 17, 2012 11:59 PM Pacific time (That's the western coasts of Canada-land, America-land, and Baja California-land), Premium memberships are on a buy-one-get-one-free sale. THAT MEANS IF YOU BUY A PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP THIS WEEK, THE DURATION BECOMES DOUBLED. A three-month PM turns into a six-month PM, and a one-year PM lasts a whole two years
That's pretty friggin' awesome!
EXCEPT that the promotional sale only applies when you buy a premium membership for yourself, which complicates things a little. To get around that, I am going to give away points
Dear Mitt Romney,I'm so very sorry you oppose adoption of children by gay couples. I'm sorry you think that 'It's not right on paper. It's not right in fact.'Dear Mitt Romney,2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, let me give you a couple of facts, Mr. Romney:
In the United States alone, approximately two million children are raised by LGBT parents, and as of 2009, over 20,000 same-sex couples are raising 30,000 adopted children.
Multiple studies in the medical, social, and psychological welfare communities have proven that children raised by LGBT parents are just as likely to be well adjusted as those raised by heterosexual parents. Meaning any worries that a poor little girl won't be able to tell one of her fathers about her menstruation, or that a boy won't be able to confide or bond with one of his mothers normally are pointless. Children confide in parents they trust, and when raised by LGBT parents, they will have the same trust with them as they would with heterosexual parents.
And if I am correct, Mr. Romney, you are against abortion. You pro

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-
