As the moments of this day tick by and by, I have grown of the mind to relay to you sterling folks a brief heartwarming tale that, while not significant in the grand scheme of the world, nonetheless brought joy to me on the 16th of January in the year 2013. Boatloads of horror stories pop up online daily regarding the worst of service and social interaction. This tale pleasantly differs from those.
Since my family isn't in a fantastic financial spot right now, we rarely possess discretionary income. However, my mom made an exception yesterday (the 16th) in order to celebrate my birthday. She did so yesterday because she won't be available on the day itself - that being today, the 17th. As such, we traveled to the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Martinsburg, a place that we haven't visited in ages. The meal itself was darn good, but this tale concerns the server. His name was and is Avery - and he was, in my estimation, the absolute best server I've witnessed at any
Scratch's EyesThe TL: DR is that Scratch's eyes as seen in the show are the same as Dash's. But here's a wall of text and helpful visual aids to help explain.Scratch's Eyes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Magenta is not red (and it's not really violet either).
For reference, this is Dash's eye pulled right from the official artwork (and ergo how I made my color guide). The eye gradients are always composed of at least two to three colors, and they all go from a darker to brighter luminance. It never goes dark-light-dark, though it can certainly change hue.
I've also included a screengrab of Dash from the show.
The flash assets used in the promo sites are the real deal from Studio B, the web people are not reinventing the wheel (and anyone who says otherwise hasn't actually dug into the flash files in the past). This has been the case since day one of the flash promo sites. But for argument's sake, I'll repost the ripped elements.
Now, to be fair, I'll grant that there may be some color management issues (given that Flash is, generally, not colo

Ponyscape v0.4!!Hi Everypony!!Ponyscape v0.4!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is with great pride that I present to you Ponyscape version 0.4!! It's been nearly a month in the making, and I think it's come quite a ways! For anyone who doesn't know, Ponyscape is my custom-built derivative of Inkscape, a vector art creation program, which adds features and fixes bugs pertaining to all artists (but especially useful to pony artists).
You can find the changelog for previous versions in their respective journals:
I have compiled binary packages for Windows, Linux Mint 14 64-bit (should also work on Ubuntu 12.10), and Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. On Windows, download the zip file and extract it using 7zip or winrar and run

Yes, I totally stole that greeting from the adorable :iconkezzi-rose: whose profile you should definitely visit. I have never seen a cuter one on deviantArt
This is a collection of so-called plz-accounts related to the animated television series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". If you have not seen it yet, this is your first step in joining the herd. Just watch the Pilot Episode and see if it can win your sympathy The original collection comes from MLPFiMplz, but it has not been updated in a while, so I thought I make it 20% cooler
Since the size of a Journal entry is limited to 60KB, I had to split the collection:

Wargaming Approves of PoniSo a few weeks ago, a representative of the developers of World of Tanks (the game that pretty much consumes most of my free time) by the name of Serj contacted me about my Pony's and Tanks vectors. He asked if he was able to use a couple of vectors from me and DolphinFox for posters to be used in the presentation of a sci-fi themed book on WoT being published in Russia. You could probably understand that I had been a little hesitant at first in replying to such a request because I basically thought, "My work being recognised by Wargaming? MY WORK?! WHAT!! This can't be possible".Wargaming Approves of Poni2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, I took the plunge and got back to him, he first asked for my M10 and S-51 vectors and if it was possible for me to recolour the Mane 6 because of copyright reasons. I said sure, no problems. He then asked for just the M10 with some OC's around it with mugs of apple cider. I said sure, I'll probably have to make up some OC's but that's not a problem. After he had a bit of a talk with the composers

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic
Ponyscape v0.4 Patched!!Hi Everypony!!Ponyscape v0.4 Patched!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The patched version of Ponyscape 0.4 is here!! Currently, the Windows, 64-bit Linux, Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 packages are available! The Linux package was built on Linux Mint 14, but it should work on most up-to-date distributions. On Windows, download the zip file and extract it using 7zip or winrar and run ponyscape.exe. On Linux, download the deb package and install it by running "sudo dpkg -i " or by using a GUI package installer of your choice. On Mac OS X, open the dmg package, drag Ponyscape.app to the Applications folder, and launch Ponyscape.app from your Applications folder. For this patch version, I revamped the Linux package so that everything is now installed in a separate directory from Inkscape and you now run "ponyscape" instead of "inkscape" from a terminal. Additionally I revamped the Mac OS package so that it's now called Ponyscape.app (and I tweaked it a bit so it runs smoother).
You can get the binary packages here (md5's are provided f

Why you no sequel?Hello, everyone!Why you no sequel?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm making this journal to clear some stuff as well as give you some updates.
First off, I'm very happy on the reception of the finale. I have given it a week to simmer and most of the feedback is positive. I was worried uploading this because the beginning and the ending of a story are what make and leave the biggest impression. The main reoccurring complaint I see is that the ending was dragged out. Really this was intentional and directive intention. More often than not I see complaints of rushed ending and no closure so I tried to make sure I closed everything with a nice little bow. For example, look at Return Of The King, there is still almost 45 minutes left in the movie after the Ring is destroyed and it's revered as one of the best trilogies of all time- not comparing my work to it of course, but I was influenced by it. Long story short, I rather have some people complain it was too long rather than it was rushed. You could always just close it as soon as tria

1) Lost my financial aid for the fall semester of university, due to a mistake in my degree completion plan.
2) Lost my job due to a physical mistake at work, nearly wrecking my left wrist in the process.
3) Lost savings, since the only automobile here is several years old & required repairs to save its life.
Yet I'm not crushed or devastated - this entire morning/afternoon was excessively lousy, sure, but a few good turns & a few great friends have proven magical. ^^
I love each of you, make no mistake, but I'mma single out those who today lifted me up:

Do Artists Matter?Do we matter?Do Artists Matter?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm specifically talking about "us" as designers, artists, or creative people. Do artists matter?
I have two personal stories that have helped me gauge and answer that question for myself. I hope they help you too.
(SIDE NOTE: I believe in a God and I believe that God loves me and leads my path but that I have free will and can turn from his leading and do my "own thing". Both of these stories have a TON of "God flavoring" that would make them much longer, so know that they are there if you want to read between the lines and find them. In short, both stories are answers to prayer.)
After 9/11 I felt worthless. Making cartoons just wasn't important in the new post 9/11 world. Firemen, policemen, construction workers, teachers, healthcare workers, architects- really, anyone that contributes to rebuilding our world and its infrastructure, those people had important jobs to do.

I worked tremendously hard on "Fun," and a lot of you knew that, and gave me an equally tremendous amount of love! I hope you know that really means something.
I read every single comment... but sometimes, there's too much to reply to... Please know that your love (or hate) never goes unnoticed. Ever!
So for those I haven't thanked for all your fantastic feedback, this is for you.
A special thanks, also, for those who feature my work and spread it around the Internet into other websites. I wouldn't have the fanbase I have if it weren't for your efforts to bring my work beyond deviantART. It's amazing! I LOVE YOU GUYS! SO MUCH!!
But alas... I won't be making any more comics.
