9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!1. - Ink can be used for drawing, writing or painting, anything you chose! You can use it with a brush, cartridge pens or drawing nibs, even a goose-quill will do!9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Ink can be water-soluble or, unlike watercolor, waterproof. Once dried out, it stays where you left it, it doesn't run away from you!
3. - Ink can be watered down and used as washes, just like watercolor, but it can be used at full strength, achieving more consistent results!
4. - Ink, when dried on paper, results in a very appealing velvety surface.
5. - Ink is in many cases a lot cheaper than watercolor, even school quality (very cheap) inks bring lovely and very satisfactory results.
6. - Inks are colorful! Forget the black ink, you will be able to buy whole variety of colored inks. Also, you can mix them together to create many more colors & hues!
7. - White ink is a perfect assistant in many other techniques, use it to create highlights and special effects!
8. - Ink

9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS1. UNIVERSALITY - Acrylic are probably the most versatile of paints. You can thin them with water and use as watercolor (they will remain permanent upon drying, unlike watercolor), apply them in full strength, create textures.9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. COMBINABLE - This medium is very suitable to be combined with anything you wish - watercolor, ink, pencils, oils... Free your imagination and experiment!
3. NUMEROUS SUITABLE SURFACES - Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, wood, metal and many more surfaces (this is true, even though they don't adhere towards some surfaces as promptly as oils). This is a great advantage, when you get used to this medium, you can paint at whatever material you've got available.
4. DON'T STINK - That's right, all of you that have experienced headaches caused by oil paint might just appreciate an acrylic vacation!
5. FAST DRYING TIME - Composition doesn't seem right after you put down your first layer? This is not a problem, wait half an hour

How to set up DA commission business-edI think I have given enough advices to different people of the same thing I might as well write a journal about it. (So I can be lazy and just pass the link to them later.)How to set up DA commission business-ed8 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal is for starters who wants to start their own DA commissioning business.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO START
When you have enough watchers and people interested in your art.
When you have a closely-bounded community around your work/gallery
How many is enough I won't say, because it soly depends on the community around you and your work. Some artists can live on one patron, others need to live on millions of them.
If you need more exposure, do fanart. After all, people would type and search famous series, not your name. If they do type your name, you are famous.
If you don't want to do fanart, the other option is draw the cliche-category.
Pirates are selling, draw pirates.
Angels and demons always sell
You get my drift?

Anti-Bullying Movie Fundraiser!Hello everypony!Anti-Bullying Movie Fundraiser!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The content of this post isn't very much related to ponies, but I believe that it's still something that's very important that should be talked about. It's about bullying.
As we all know, bullying is a major problem that many kids face today. Some of you may have even faced bullying, for being bronies, or any other reason.
This is why we should do everything we can to stop it, and to raise awareness, so that other people are aware of this issue.
This is why a group of friends of mine have decided to make a movie, to raise awareness about bullying, and to help bring an end to this terrible atrocity against innocent kids.
However, their project definitely needs some help, as it does cost money to help produce and promote the movie.
They have started an IndieGogo campaign, which can be found here http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/night-shadow
I am helping them spread the word about their movie, because I feel like I want to do my part to help stop bullying as best I can.
A simple piece of advice for making charactersI've gotten a lot of requests from time to time from people asking me to basically critique their character and give my thoughts or help them work through a problem. Sadly, most of the time, those characters are some underdeveloped - meaning that there isn't much described about them beyond basic informations - and that makes it harder for me to give my thoughts.A simple piece of advice for making characters1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, I thought I'd share a little process of mine when I make characters.
Base something off yourself or someone/something you know
First off, I know some people have difficulties in generating unique characteristics and personality quirks for their characters. In my experience, I sometimes base a character on an aspect of myself (not myself entirely, but usually one or two things about me). Or, I'll even base them on an aspect of someone I know or even a fictional character. So if you're ever not sure where to start with a character, think of something about yourself or someone you know to help get you

PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourselfSuccess is not a measure of how much money you earn or how popular you are, rather, it is being able to find your passion - one that makes you happy and ultimately, one that you would be happy to leave as your legacy. To make a step forward to reach your dream takes smarts and guts but why couldn't you? Here is five reasons why you can.PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourself3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Everyone was born equal
More-less, this is true, some people are born more challenged than others but we all possess skills and ability to learn. It is possible to build something out of nothing if we really want to. It all comes down to our preferences and decisions.
"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."
2. Overcoming your fears
By constantly challenging yourself, you can get rid of fears that used to follow you. You will no longer be worried, you'll know you can count on yourself.
"If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right."

Alicorn and pegasi OC's.. (MLP)I realize there are too many alicorn and Pegasus OC's. About 99% of my friends' pony personas are pegasi, actually. And they don't even seem Pegasus-ish in my eyes. No offense.Alicorn and pegasi OC's.. (MLP)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I believe it's because flying is the best ability in their opinion, but it bugs me a lot because, what is the purpose of having wings besides just flying for fun? And Alicorns, because they want to be a princess? Or because they just want to fly and have magic? What if in reality (I mean as if you were in the show) your family was just naturally a unicorn family, and you had no choice but to just be a unicorn? And how would your horn be in good use for the things you love to do? Be realistic, for pete's sake. You don't just make yourself a Pegasus OC just because you just think pegasi are cool, because they have wings. Don't make everything in the fictional world so freaking simple. It makes it boring and less creative in my opinion. Make your OC's pony race suit their destiny. Like in the show, a
HOW 2 MAKE A WARRIOR CATS AMV1.) The song must be by Three Days Grace, Evanescence, or Mindless Self Indulgence. If it is not by one of these artists, it must sound very similar.HOW 2 MAKE A WARRIOR CATS AMV2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2.) Include at least 7 run cycles. The fewer frames, the better.
3.) Make sure to have one of each of the following: A closeup of the protagonist's eyes, gritted teeth, 3 red claw marks slashing across the screen, and bloody claws. (Bonus points for a single tear rolling down cheek)
4.) At least one character design must be slightly different than how it is described in the book series, so people have something to complain about.
5.) The AMV must focus on Scourge, Tigerstar, Bluestar, Ashfur, or Hollyleaf. (If not these characters, then the character in question MUST have a tragic / angsty past.)
6.) Trace every frame of your AMV from someone else's AMV, but never admit you did it. (If you get called out, claim that THEY copied YOU.)
7.) Character designs must be anime inspired. Characters can't be angsty if they don't have bangs and gian
