One Year of PonyBest year of my life.One Year of Pony2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, thank you so much everyone for the birthday wishes! It means a whole lot to me. I've been meaning to write this for a few days, but I had a lot more to say too.
A little over one year ago, out of a mixture of boredom and curiousity, I watched a few episodes of this colorful pony show. Shortly afterwards I did something very out-of-character and something that was very rare in my life until that point - I picked up a pencil and tried to draw. And then I shared these scribbles on Ponychan, and at some time, someone said something along the lines of, "Good work, keep it up!", which I'd never even dreamt of hearing before. And so after searching for years, I finally found a reason to draw. And everyday I still look forward to seeing these wonderful people that I met way back then.
Hundreds of paintings later (and thousands of ponies ), I look back on this year and see all the wonderful friends I've made here and have yet to make, people who I truly ca

Why You (Still) Shouldn't Use Celestia MediumSince I wrote my last journal about Celestia Medium, the situation on that front has changed a little bit, and I feel it's fair to have another look at where things stand today.Why You (Still) Shouldn't Use Celestia Medium4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The initial reaction on the part of :iconpurpletinker: was surprising to me - most people don't take to being called out very well. By withdrawing her original font, she understood what was going on and admitted a mistake. It takes good character to do the right thing, and she did so with grace. Since then, a different user, :iconmattyhex: has released Celestia Medium Redux, which is a slightly different take on Celestia Medium. There's quite a few differences between the Redux version and the original release, not regarding the differences between the true font, Generation B. You can find Generation B at Harold's Fonts and purchase it online from Font Bros.
Before I go on about that, i

My Little Dashie PoemShe came to me like an angelMy Little Dashie Poem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She was beautiful from every angle
Showed up when my life was grim
Poured in a light when mine was dim
She was very young, but really strong
Running around all night long
Only once did she ever speak
Made my heart jump to next week
She kissed my cheek to know she had me
Cutely said "I love you, Daddy"
The day she left, I tried not to cry
But wasn't able the moment she said bye
Mouthing the words with eyes now filled
"I love you, Daddy...I always will"
Now I gaze at her baby pictures
My heart feels it's covered in blisters
The day I found her I remember well
In the wind, it must have been hell
Sitting in that box all alone
The box Read "Give To A Good Home"

Rarylicious?...Well guys, I just messaged Tabitha st. Germain about doing Rarylicious... I won't go into details, but here was the first response I received:Rarylicious?...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I say, Old Horse
The thing is I balk at the idea of copying a fellow pony. That would make me the same. A pony might call me 'Samey-same-pants from-Sameville' and not be entirely wrong. The word Rarity, means 'unique' as I'm sure you are aware. The word Meme, if you add a little hat over the 'e' actually means 'same' in French-- the language of love... and cheese sauce. Speaking of sauce, the suffix 'licious' is outright foody to my ear.
And is one a potato? One is not.
Which is to say, thanks awfully for your kind offer and I'll think about it.
I do wish there was something fitting that rhymed with diamond.
She eventually broke character and we are talking normally now. She's a brilliantly funny person and I definitely smell a new meme cooking up...
Keep your eyes peeled...

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a

Well, for those of you who don't know, I recently collaborated with Michelle Creber (voice of Apple Bloom... Duh) on my own rendition of... A mystery song...
I had really hoped to be around for the release, but it looks like I'm gonna miss it by just a few hours...
I'll be at sea until March 22nd, so no download until then unfortunately... (Unless I can get some decent internet and the time to work on youtube upload while underway. For those of you who have served, you probably have a good idea of how likely that is. )
It is now 0350.
I leave at 0600.
Sorry guys, I really am.
P.S. THANK YOU GUYS SOOOO MUCH FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WITHES!! I wish wish WISH I had time to thank you all personally, but I don't...
Please know that I am so thankful and truly touched by your kindness!
Not just on my birthday, but every day!
