Why is undercharging a bad idea?
Now, here are my thoughts on this topic as well:
I might seem like a hypocrite, since I tend to keep my commission pieces low and affordable for all, and I don't see my artwork worth as much as certain artists', but I do know that it takes a long time to create art, and I feel I priced it reasonably enough, according to me and my current talent level. Many of my followers know, I have raised my prices in the past to help compensate for the amount of time I was spending. Compared to what they were and what they are now is VERY significant, but I hated raising prices because every time I did it resulted in a huge cut of fans' opportunities to commission me-- temporarily or permanently. Dreams get crushed each

What is a 'Furry' and do you think you aI've become fascinated with a series of comments I made on an "I like Furries" stamp made by someone.What is a 'Furry' and do you think you a3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I said this specifically: "I don't consider myself a "Furry" and I never will, but I do agree that all furries are normal people with a favorite hobby..." And yadda yadda.
For some strange reason it bothers people that I don't label myself as "Furry" but I do what a Furry does. Hm...maybe, I've never been into the fandom until a year ago and I've got my OWN interest in it and I don't relate to that word because I've never done anything that people associate the word with?
I've always loved costumes. I've loved anthro animals/alien humanoids. Well, there you go. I call them "Anthros." Not "Furries." It's a name that Furries gave themselves and that's okay. I just...don't feel like using that label for myself. What, am I going to jail because I'm not following the rules?
Anthrocon is just that...."Anthro" Con. Not "Furry" con. It's a technical term. For some reason it bothers people that

A Poem(s) For NinjaKatoGod Is Our PeaceA Poem(s) For NinjaKato2 years ago in Personal More Like This
God is our peace-
He opens up the way...
for us to breathe deeply;
of His calmness each day.
When we grow weary
of traveling Life's road;
let's return to His resting place...
our Spirit's abode.
God is out peace-
hold that thought in mind;
it's no more a secret...
but a joy, to be defined.
God is out peace-
in the 'eye of the storm'.
His closeness, our comfort...
until the breaking of Dawn.
God is our peace-
in prayer we appeal...
for an end to our suffering;
which He alone can Heal!
Give Yourself a Moment
Recall a time alone,
when you called out a name;
but there no encouragement
and nobody came.
Simply light a candle...
feel the comfort in it's glow.
Soon you'll sense a 'Presence'
and your loneliness will go.
Refresh yourself each day...
Within the candle's ray.
Use the 'Light' it sheds on you...
to chase the Darkness away.
Give yourself a moment,
In a place where you're apart.
Surrender in the solitude...
the burdens of your heart.
Peacefulness will follow,

TELL A FRIEND.
The fire over alicorn Twilight was smothered a bit by the appearance of our Favorite pegasus not once, but at least 3 times in the season 3 finale!
The question is: Did DHX get a green from Hasbro to put her in one more time? Or did they sneak her in under the radar? Perhaps the most telling sign is in one scene she's hiding underneath some background ponies, and actually winks at the camera: http://i.imgur.com/8b1D11D.gif
The first time she was caught was this very out in the open scene: https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/7069149184/h5BB648FA/
There was also one where people are saying she was with Dinky and Dr. Hooves, but it doesn't look like her to me: http://i.imgur.com/IVyEYM4.png
Here's some other shots:

CONTEST TIMEOkay! Contest time! Due to popular demand, I have decided to bring Bluefire back as my main character on Kugyay (making Vaporkit another account, or just keeping her on my profile looking kinda like what I currently have on my Nitom profile). Anyway! I have become rather bored with her previous design of just blue-gray. It seems to me she should have a bit more pizazz in her pelt. That is why I come to you my fellow watchers and friends. I would like you guys to help me come up with some pelt designs! ^.^CONTEST TIME2 years ago in Personal More Like This

- Eyes can be any variation of Blue (Blue ONLY)

Blood doner, life... Well, before I start explaining my inactivity I'm gonna ask if anyone has any experience in blood donation. xD Our school is having a blood drive, and this is the first one where I am actually old enough to do it (16) so I'd like to try it. The reason why is because I've always had a lot of respect for people in school who do, and that little pain from the prick of the needle is nothing compared to what someone else is suffering who may need the blood. I've been reassured a lot by people who has done it in the past, saying you can barely feel it. I'm just scared of the sight of blood and I know I'll get very lightheaded.... so wish me luck. xD Also get free food and t-shirt, and get outta class for a while. xD I'm pretty nervous but also kind of excited.Blood doner, life...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

OK, a lot.
The-Closing-Ring is a literate RPing group based on black-tailed deer who have divided and formed Kingdomes in the Rocky Mountains. It’s a complicated society with many important details that are explained in blogs. You must fill an application to join and be active. That being said, the admins will do our very best to keep the group active, exiting and organized as well as interactive for our members. If this is what you’re looking for please continue. The-Closing-Ring welcomes you.
** Before you try and join our group, we would appreciate it if you would read all the information blogs very carefully.

Character Guidelines~Here you will find out just what to consider when creating a deer for The-Closing-Ring. This is very important so pay close attention, what you learn here could win you a spot in the group.Character Guidelines~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Choose your Kingdome wisely. Remember the different attributes of the two Kingdomes, as well as which Kingdome followed Dawn and which followed Dusk. More information can be found within the story and informational Kingdome blogs.
-Deciding on your character’s appearance is very important. All colors used to create the character must be natural, and please try to keep the patterns simple. Deer have naturally plain coats, of course we expect you to spice it up a little, just not too much. Remember that what makes a character original isn't its color or its design; it’s those little quirks and details. Things like a clump of longer fur, a shorter tail, twisted antlers, a chipped hoof… The possibilities are endless. Deer ey
