When you buy from..."When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, having enough money to feed the children, the birds, …the dog. You aren't just buying a thing - you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all of the above worth the fear and doubt; something that puts the life into living." - Rebekah Joy PlettWhen you buy from...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Where am I? and New Giveaway!PERSONAL SECTIONWhere am I? and New Giveaway!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So first lets start off with why I haven't up loaded new ponies in 2 weeks.
I have been working on a very special commission for a friend. I know I should be working on as many ponies as I can for this time of year, but this is for the friend that got me into making ponies. I should have a picture of this girl tomorrow, I still have shoes and a hat to make. I will have a second one for ebay shortly after I make a Button's Mom for ebay.
Now I promised a giveaway and that is what I will do. ^W^
Date: Nov. 15-23
The winner will be picked at random on the 23 about 8:30pm central time.
I will be giving away one filly or colt. This can be any official pony. (Ex. Button Mash, Sweetie Bell, etc.) The filly or colt can also be an adult pony, just as a filly. (Ex. Twilight, Derpy, Trixie, Dr. Whooves, etc.)
I can also do Snowdrop or Button's Mom as a filly.
Example of my style of Fillies and Colts: http://kiashone.deviantart.com/gal

Plush kits are a go!edit: link to the original poll http://magnastorm.deviantart.com/journal/poll/4064436/ or here's a quick rundown;Plush kits are a go!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
These kits will include everything you need to make one of the following:
Chibi Wolpertinger , chibi Jackalope or a chibi Gemstone Dragon
The kits will include instructions, (cut?) fabric pieces, and in the case of Wolpertingers and Jackalopes a plastic nose or an acrylic gem for the Gemstone Dragons.
Considering the super positive response plush kits will happen!
These will probably not be available until January or so, unless I suddenly find myself with lots of free time to create the instructions after I move in about a week and a half. These would be available in limited numbers, just so I don't spend entire weeks cutting out pieces instead of working on commissions ahah. I'm thinking about limiting them to a certain number per two w
Thank You Everyone!I have just returned home, having celebrated my birthday with my family. We owe them a huge debt, as they are the people who served as a testing group for my humor over the years. They have faced jokes so horrible, your faith in the universe might perish.Thank You Everyone!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I return to DeviantArt to witness at least 23 pages of birthday wishes from you fine folks, in addition to a wealth of birthday notes. I feel inadequate to reply to each message as I try to get the next review done.
This has been a fine week even before my birthday. Last night, I completed my portfolio review, which removes a heavy stress from my schedule. I want to accomplish as much as possible this holiday season to put out review videos and fulfill overdue obligations to the brony community.
So thank you, everyone, for the birthday wishes. I am sorry I cannot reply to each message individually. I want to show my thanks by putting for the best-quality content possible!

I am glad to hear that one of the commissions will be finished. I look forward to seeing everyone get theirs. I hope you are all treated well and wish the best to all involved in the situation. Again, I wrote this journal because my conscience would not let me continue to ignore this issue. It looks like it is on the right track now. Thank you, :iconsailorminimuffin:, for doing the right thing.
It seems that after continual messaging, she managed to put a WIP picture, the first after eight months. We'll see if she actually delivers. Still be cautious.
Before I say anything, let me say this. I absolutely hate confrontation, and I always wish and hope for the best in people. This journal is not meant for anything but a warning and I encourage that after reading this, please dear watchers, do not go and use this as a gossip thread or a place to say mean things.

Your opinionI'm not sure about you but I used to respect Akai on deviantart.. yeah that obsessed girl over Sonic.Your opinion2 years ago in Personal More Like This
and I did stop respecting her. you ask why? not because she stopped liking sonadow
but she started bashing other people that love it.. make other people look lame about it because they enjoy saying that it's adorable sexy and so on.
so what? people are happy about what they enjoy the most.
what kind of a person are you? making over 700 pages of sonadow comic after that leaving it like nothing and talking shit about people that love it? SCREW YOU!
and I didn't understand why people attack you.. you are the one that looking for this fights and anger, you enjoy that aren't you?
so those butt licker fans will come and say how right you are.
if you were a mature person you wouldn't make all those retarded journals about how much you hate sonadow or make pictures about Sonics and Shadows hate.. all of us know that sega didn't make them gay and such
they didn't make akai x sonic too.

KEEP IN MIND THAT I'M NOT THE BEST AND MY PONY ANATOMY ISN'T PERFECT. THESE VIDEOS ARE TO SHOW YOU HOW I DRAW PONIES FOR MY ART AND COMICS. TO GIVE YOU A GOOD IDEA ON HOW TO GO ABOUT DRAWING PONIES FOR YOURSELF.
If you decide to start drawing, keep in mind that your not going to be great at it when you first try. Believe me I couldn't draw ponies to save my life, but I keep at it and look at me now.
Don't give up, as long as you keep it up you'll soon be drawing ponies in no time. Also don't treat art as a chore, have fun with it.
Also use References to help you out, don't be ashamed to use them. Also check out this link for helpful pony anatomy sketches http://gunrunnersarsenal.tumblr.com/post/17039753243/tutorial-stuff-which-can-be-really-usefull
