When you buy from...

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 11, 2013, 12:02 PM

"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 Plett

Where am I? and New Giveaway!

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 15, 2013, 7:52 PM
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^

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:…

Rules to Enter:

  • Must be a watcher.
  • Must write a journal about this giveaway/linking it, then fill this form below, and use it in you comment on this journal. (Note: Incomplete comments will be disqualified.)

Link to Journal:
What filly or colt you will like?:

  • One entry per person, multiple entries will be disqualified.
  • Doesn't matter where you live, but must be 18 or older, or parents must be okay with gifts from strangers. Shipping is paid by me.
  • Last rule, must be polite to the winner. Any negativity will encourage me to delay future giveaways.
I tried to keep it simple. Let hope I did well. Anyways Have fun!!!

OMG what is with all the spam lately? My comments are completely full of it over the last couple days! Please do NOT click any of the links, as I'm sure they will contain some horrible virus that will explode your computer. If you see one of these spam messages, please report it as spam. There are SO many overrunning my deviations I can't keep up with them all. This is ridiculous! :disbelief:

Also, the two orientals up for auction end later tonight for anyone interested. Rainbow ends at 6pm (7.5 hrs from now) and Goldy ends 15 minutes after that at 6:15. That's California time (Pacific).

So I keep hearing the new Animal Crossing is pretty freaking awesome. I tried to get it last night but apparently it is so popular you can't find it in stores right now! That's crazy! So I guess I'm gonna order it online. I could just download it, but I'm one of those people that likes having hard copies, just in case I want to trade it in later. Do any of you guys play? I've heard it is way more fun if you have other people to visit in game so I'm gonna need some buddies! Whenever I get my copy I'll give y'all my code. :D

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.

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!

Plush kits are a go!

Thu Nov 28, 2013, 3:22 AM
edit: link to the original poll…  or here's a quick rundown;
These kits will include everything you need to make one of the following: 
Chibi Wolpertinger chibi Wolpertingers 2012 by MagnaStorm , chibi Jackalope chibi Jackalopes 2012 by MagnaStorm or a chibi Gemstone Dragon Baby Amethyst and Peridot by MagnaStorm
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 weeks, so every two weeks there would be say, for example, 5 kits of each kind available. That way I can get them mailed out in a timely manner and still have most of my time for commissions. 

I'm also thinking about having basic kits and custom kits available. The basic ones would be pre-made and ready to ship as soon that they're up in my shop, and would be the basic colors (dark brown, mocha and beige for the Wolpertingers and Jackalope for example). Custom would, of course, be made to order in the colors of the buyer's choice. The basics would also count towards the 5 of each kind every two weeks, I'll probably have another poll up shortly to find out if people are more interested in custom colors or just the basic ones so I know which I should release more of. 

Next, the price. I haven't set it in stone yet, and as pointed out by plenty of people in the poll discussion it might have to go up. I guesstimated $20 for these since this is around the average I've seen other kits go for, but I'll have to calculate and crunch numbers to see what they'll actually cost me to produce. There might be a small difference between basic and custom kits, not sure yet will have to see. 

So yeah, there's a lot of work to do for these to be ready to sell but this is a start! I'd been thinking about doing something like this for a long time now, thank my friends for giving me a push in the right direction!

Quick bio of her: She's mute, loves to sleep, docile, and people often misjudge her as rude because they are unaware of her disability. She's misunderstood and is used to being a loner. If you have any more questions, let me know. I don't want to fill the journal with this.
:bulletgreen: My facebook page has the contest going there, too.
:bulletpurple: Purchasing one of my beanies will count as five entries. I have limited stock available. They are here in my Etsy shop.

Winner will receive a plush from me, by me (winner will pay shipping)! The choice will be either an easy OC, or a Flitter plush! The plush will be made with a new pattern as well, which I am very proud of! (I'll post that soon, too!) If you want to make sure whether your OC is eligible, feel free to note me with your OC.
