April Emote Chat Event RoundupChat EventApril Emote Chat Event Roundup8 months ago in Personal More Like This
April saw another in the line of emote themed chat events hosted in our emoticon chatroom #WeEmote. It was held on Saturday 6th April, 9PM BST.
The event had 3 different games covering a wide range of emoticon related topics from a pixel challenge, to an emote treasure hunt. Below you will find a round up of the event.
Emote Treasure Hunt
In the emote treasure hunt we provided an artist's username and a clue to find a specific animal-themed deviation in their gallery. Once deviants found the designated deviation, they had to post the thumb into the chat. The first person who gets it right will won the prize. However, instead of winning a standard amount of points, in the spirit of April fools which was earlier this week we had 10 different prizes, one randomly assigned to each question. These ranged from 1-100 points and a variety of art prizes. So what each person won was a bit of a mystery.

I like the idea of using emotes for sports. This one in particular, the use of slowing down time to show his change in expression to "OH CRAP" being one of the best things about this piece.

A good emote doesn't need to be complicated in any sort, sometimes the best emotes are remarkably simple, such is the case here. This emote does what any good static / near-static chat friendly emote should do, describe in an emotion, which it does in a remarkably cute way.

Originally, I was going to theme this month "Snowmen" as my oldest, Dylan, has told me all he wants for Christmas is a snowman. However, I realized this might be a tad limiting. So, I broadened it a bit...and decided on snow! Whether it's snow angels, blizzards, a light dusting....really, there are quite a few ways you can go with this. And did I mention my old obsession, snowglobes? Let's help me feel a little more festive (61 F in December?? Really?) by freezing as many tiny balls as possible.
Only new submissions for this. The emote must be submitted after the theme has been announced.
You can enter as many times as you want.

In celebration of the release of sta.sh writer comments, which allows you to use Community Emoticons in the Comments (Read more about it here: [link])
I decided to host a Contest just for Chat friendly Emotes.
The main goal of this Contest is to provide more chat friendly Emotes for the Community. The Judges can also participate in the contest, but they aren't eligible to win.
Chat Friendly means to me that it serves a purpose within a conversation other than to look good, the Emoticon has to show an action or an Emotion, the animation shouldn't be too long and the canvas not too big. Therefore there will be also a restricted canvas size for the Contest.
Only new submissions for the Contest.The Emoticon has to be Chat friendly, they have to show an Emotion or an Action, which can be used within conv
Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. futureI am proud to present you my first "official" Emoticon Contest.Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. future2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At first I want to tell you something about the theme:
As you have read the theme is past vs. present vs. future, this means your entry has to include something from the past, present and future. The time isn't set, this means that the past could be just 1 day ago or 100 years ago it's the same with the future. For example: you could display how the emotes have lived in the past how they are living now and how they could live in the future.
Be creative and surprise me with your imagination
The Contest is divided into 2 Categories:
The first Category will be for deviants who would like to work alone. And the second category is for deviants who want to work with somebody (a collaboration category ;D) 2 deviants can work together.
But you could also enter in both categories!
Below you can find the rules of each category and what you have to keep in mind.

Right, then! Back from looking at the fruits of your labor from last week, and time to get to our theme for this week. As per usual, it comes to us via suggestion from one of your guys! In this case, a certain ~Fox-E, and it goes like so:
A Pony Dealing with Fire!
As per usual, there's all kinds of stuff to be done with this. For the literal-minded, you could have Ponyville's local firemare helping to extinguish a blaze, or maybe you're going to focus on the terrible would-be chef who started it! Or, perhaps a nice campfire is more what you're looking for? And then there's all the metaphorical and wordplay fires - burning passion, gunfire, laserfire, or friendly fire (

Devious Journal EntryI love drawing. it is the only thing i have ever loved since my time began. i have been drawing for as long as i can remember and i plan to pursue my dream of being an artist until my last breath.I may not be very good now, but i know i will become better day by day as i continue getting better by getting tips and support from everyone who would like to support me for the rest of my life. I read a quote earlier and it says "Pursue your passion and it will become talent." that is the best quote i have ever heard. Not everything you do is gonna start out great the first time around, But if you continue to work on it, put in a lot of effort, eventually it would turn out better.Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Similar to pursuing your Passion (whatever it may be), if you really love doing it, don't stop no matter what. Don't make anymore excuses and just do it! Practice as much as you can and soon enough you'll get the most of it!
Not an art guidance blog. #1Hello and formal greetings to all,Not an art guidance blog. #17 months ago in Personal More Like This
this is Inky.
Now I've received notes often asking... how am I able to draw so well.
What is your secret?
What program do use?
Do you take up art lessons?
Are you talented because of that?
How. Do. You. Do. It?
TEACH ME ART!
And for the purpose of answering all that (because I love you guys as much as I wanna help you) I've made this "blog" in order to discuss about certain topics which I find... vital in your art career.
Now do be warn I am by no means a professional.
So what I say may vary to your opinions.
It is NOT a how to be an artist tutorial.
It is an inclined, tip blog. Which may or may not help you.
What you do with it, is completely up to you.
So with that intro out of the way let's resume shall we?

Past Memories Ch5Once Gingersnap finally got her wings to go down, she followed Cheerilee into her old bedroom. "You can sleep in here." Cheerilee said. Gingersnap explores the room she grew up in, "I remember this place." Gingersnap says. The brave pegasus bounces on her big fluffy bed. "The bed is still big enough for 3 ponies." Gingersnap giggles. Cheerilee smiles motherly at her adopted daughter. Suddenly there is a loud clang in the kitchen below, "What the hay was that?" Gingersnap said. The fearless pegasus draws out her sword, she then quickly flies down the stairs. She hides behind the wall near the entrance of the kitchen. Gingersnap's eyes narrow, then she jumps into the kitchen, her sword is inches before Fluttershy's snout. "Eek! Don't hurt me!" Fluttershy squeaks the hides behind a chair. Gingersnap lowered her sword, in the corner there was a pile of pots and pans. "I didn't mean to scare you Fluttershy. I just thought that something evil was in the kitchen."Past Memories Ch57 months ago in Personal More Like This

Thanks to all of you that managed to make time in this busy season to draw something this week - I know there's all kinds of family and holiday and school stuff going on that makes it hard to participate.

Coming up with a theme for this week was something of a doozy! The obvious routes for a tie-in with this week's episode were things like "a pony's worst nightmare" or "a pony dreaming" and themes like that. But then this group being so long-running reared its ugly head as I realized that we'd done pretty much everythin

I Miss you.I miss those daysI Miss you.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
where i could smile,
but the sadness stings,
and the pain is vile.
It haunts my thoughts,
and tortures my dreams.
A plague that rots,
while slashing the seams.
It has torn pieces from me,
and scattered them apart.
It has possessed my dreams,
and destroyed my heart.
I long for the nights
that were full of bliss
and my dreams would glow,
after a goodnight kiss.
Those days are long gone,
and so are the nights.
The sadness still lingers
but my hope... It still fights.

When you draw or paint have you ever said to yourself you suck? It happens to everypony, even great artists. The picture you think is horrible is just a sign of a great artist ready to blossom. I still use bases and sometimes get some trolls but do I stop? NO I DON'T! The dream and passion of reaching the stars is still in my heart, as long as you have your hopes and dreams you can do almost anything! With practice you can do anything people say, that maybe true but it is the passion and hope that pushes you on! As long as I have passion in my heart I will not stop reaching for the stars! Next time if you think you suck, just try to remember why you are drawing or painting? My reason maybe diffrent than yours, but nothing can stop me from beliving! Do you remember when you where really young and you first started drawing? they were mostly scribbles I bet. When I showed a picture that was just a stick figue thing that I called
