Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube!Alright guys here you go! I finally made a video of me making one of my dragons. The video is pretty long, about an hour, so watch it when you have some time to veg and watch some sculpting. I was going to just make it a time-lapse, but ended up narrating the whole thing, so instead you get to listen to me babble on about sculpting for an hour while I'm making the dragon. It was actually pretty fun to make, so I think I'll make a pony one in the near future as well!Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

FAQHow did you get started?FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always sculpted as a hobby and am completely self taught. In April of 2010 I decided I wanted to finally try my hand at selling my work. I started posting things on etsy and DA and veeery slowly people started noticing. My first couple of years relied heavily on commission work.
How are you so popular? I just started making sculptures to but nobody notices or buys them?
It took well over two years before I was actually getting fulltime work with decent pay. It took a TON of hard work. I sold my work for far less than I should have, because I needed customers. I also did a few shows, to get some exposure by handing out business cards. I made things as often as I could, posted often, and made sure it was very clear I was open for commissions. I posted links on everything. You have to make it easy for people to find the info they need! I posted mainly on etsy and DA, then made a fanpage on facebook very late in the game. Probably sho

I joined Deviant Art I few years back bright eyed and hopeful. I tried to show case some talent I felt I had and over a period gained a handful of friends. Like most folks in the last several years the hard times came and with that I slowly faded away from this friendly art community. With some help from friends we reopen DreamOrchid's doors with a new website (www.dreamorchid.com), official DreamOrchid face book page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOrchid/189645937780364), and even a twitter account.

SOME NEWS AND THE GODS HELMETFirst of it all, i want to show all my gratitude to all the people who are supporting my crap and my music last day, to know some people have Mister 13 folder on their mp3 players and Iphones is so amazing to me. Holy shit thank you. After the dead of my computer i thought to start again would be so slow and painful but you can fuck with a badass. So finally i´ve a release date in October for my first offical album, some comissions running and my book will be released as soon as my lazy printer will give to me a date for to start.

Disqordilicious.So... wow... My inbox has been exploding all week. I've been completely floored by the response to my little graphic story about Disqord.Disqordilicious.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've gotten so many wonderful, beautiful, comments! I read them all, even if I do not respond to each one. I am so moved that so many people found my little story so interesting! Really, it makes me all glowy to know that I was able to hit the artistic nail on the head. Nothing is more satisfying to an artist than knowing that their work "got to people".
Many of you understood exactly what I was aiming for, and that makes me happiest of all!
Knowing that I was able to communicate my artistic vision (with a fan comic!) feels so triumphant. As I posted each page, I would read the comments and keep them in mind when painting the next page... I would put extra effort into emphasizing certain points and ideas of mine to help better communicate them. Really, all of your comments truly helped me to hone my idea and inspire me to keep up with the work. So th

Lesson ZeroHow about that third episode of MLP: FIM. I thought the pink one was suppose to be the crazy one. I do feel for twilight I was once like that myself, but then my health brought me back to reality, and my fiancee help out a lot. I do have to say was was not expecting this episode to out as great as it did. I still cannot wait for the return of Luna in the next episode.Lesson Zero3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On another note almost ready to put up my own fanfic, just wish I had some pre-readers. But hopeful some of my readers will give some good feed back.
Any way back to studying for midterms now.

"It really sucks to have you car break down in the middle of nowhere, especially when the only house around is a haunted mansion. Most people have the common sense to avoid a house as creepy as this place, but this guy is willing to go in. Predictably, trouble awaits him inside..."
"The Ghost Bride" is my third commission for Mako :iconmsmako:. I hope you like it, and I'm sorry about not having the Flash version this time.

I have been thinking of changing the name of my person OC (the one trotting at the bottom). Right now he is called Brass Arrow. The name came form a mix of a name generated by a MLP name generator at rum Monkey and the metal I think of when I say steampunk. The original generated name became the main focus of my fan fiction starring Steel Arrow.
If any of your read this what do you think keep it or change with something else? If enough interest is show I post up another journal (because you need a premium account to make a poll) with some of my options.
Luna EclipseWow that Luna episode. Not quite the voice I imagine little to high pitched and not as soft as I imagined. Well at lest one of our theories was correct she does seem like a trickster, and she just trying to fit in but a lot has changed in 1000 and she just trying what she remembers to be the norm. But that leaves one question what has she been doing for over a year? Unless the episode are not in chronological order in the airing time line.Luna Eclipse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this episode could in pony universe time it could have taken place right after she came back so ponies could have been still scared of her. But in the past season there is really no proof to support my theory in full. But it would explain a lot of the trouble she had during the celebration one year after her return.
By no means does this take away from the episode. It will be in my top five favorites. Viva the new lunar republic.
All that is Fair PDFWell Seeing as MaximillianVeers :iconMaximillianVeers: has gotten out of the MLP FanFiction PDF file game, and this story would not make it on to the pages of EqD. I have decide to put one up myself.All that is Fair PDF2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Out With the old and in with a Rewrite.So yeah I was going through a little writing slump for the past two months or how ever long since I posted my last chapter. So I was trying my hoof art some drawing and digital art to try and get my writing mojo working again. I was reading over what I had written and thought is was pretty bad. So I throw out most of the first half of the chapter and I am currently rewriting it. I will be a little while until I am able to get the next chapter out.Out With the old and in with a Rewrite.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Please do not use my artwork and claim it as your own. Do not edit it in any way unless I have given permission.
And please do not pretend to be me on any site. Using my name and claiming to be me while leaving nasty comments to others is not okay. It reflects on me and my art in a negative light.
However I would like to say again that I am very appreciative of all my supporters, comments, favs, watches, etc. And I hope I can continue to inspire and share my art with everyone! Thank you!!
