Waiting for the Snow to FallStill waiting for the snow to fall, doesn't even feel like Christmas at all. -Coldplay Christmas lights.Waiting for the Snow to Fall3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well it is finals week at my universty in the pacific northwest. The weather is cold but yet no rain or snow has fallen down low. Instead it decided to be bright and the air is kind of gunky looking. It is all rather confusing. But yet I find myself not being able to get into the Christmas spirit at all this year because of the weather.
Plus the heat doesn't seem to be working in the library, so it rather chilly inside. It would not be so bad if I was just studing in the library, but I also work at the library as well. Today I am pulling a double shift.
I would not be so bad if there was snow on the ground, and more of a holiday atmosphere around campus.
Enough ranting back to studying and working.
Quick updateSo I am sort of participating in ATG II over at EQD. I am not doing every day, just because circumstance I am in and we'll just leave it at that. Also I really want to get the next chapters of my story out.Quick update2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Be one of the first 14 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will put your avatar and three deviations that I will personally select from your gallery in this "Share the Art" feature.
IMPORTANT: If you do comment, you're expected to do the same in your own journal; putting me on the first place, completing the list with 14 other people to make a sum of 15 people..
The idea behind this is NOT to get a free feature, but to help spread art and artists around for everyone. So why not check out the artists on other peoples' list?

Oh on another note, (hold on while I ready the royal Canterlot voice) I GOT REQUESTED TO DRAW A PONY!!!!!
I thought that would never happen. I only started drawing ponies (or anything else) back in December as a I don't have any money for gifts, lets give this a try. To my requester I shall do my best.
One other thing I finally starting to figure out to draw ponies digital. I found a useful tutorial from the ATG ground week 29 theme. I might put it up tomorrow, I still need to experiment more before I am really read to work in this medium.
So long for now, I need to get start on day four if I want to get it in on time.

First the good news.
Thanks to the cover art to All That is Fair, by :iconTheParagon: being featured in :iconMLP-FIM: I have picked up a few more followers and the story gotten a bunch of favs. Yeah for success by association.
Oh my foot is healing nicely by the way. I can walk on it again and the pain mostly gone. But, misfortune love company (bad news part).
My family and I were driving back from an extended family gathering for my fathers birthday. We were driving back on Hwy 6 in Utah (top 15 dangerous roads in the us), when the car in front of us didn't quite make the turn and hit an on coming car, spinning it out towards us. We were almost able to get out of the way but it hit my side of car. Everyone is okay who was involved in the crash.
I guess I need to write this out to get it out of my system.

A Little StuckHello everypony,A Little Stuck3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me start off by apologize for the long time it is taking me to come out with the next Chapter. I guess it a little writers block in the details of the chapter, especially the some of the dialog exchanges. I have an overall "road map" of the path I want this chapter to follow and where it will end up. It just the parts of the journey that don't sit right with me.
Along with my writer's block, the real world is starting to take up more of my time again. Being in the senior year of the college mean I have a senior project along with many presentation on my project. Plus I am helping a professor design a new lab for next year's short winter term. So for the past week and a half I have been spend all day in the lab.
But do not fret (more for me then you), I am working on it slowly. I even trying my hand at drawing to try and work out of this funk.
Thanks for your patience.
Thanks to my friendsI would just like to take a moment to thank all the people who have looked at my pieces of artwork and read over my work in progress. I don't know what is about this fandom that made me want to publish my works in the first place. I am glad I decide to get into ponies or I might not have tried any of this in the first place.Thanks to my friends3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would really like to the few people who are following my progress.

There are three other people I would like to thank from my University, but I cannot find their online persona's. Also not sure weather they would like to be named out right, but they know who they are.
I would also to thank these artist for their commissions and gift I received. I cannot thanks you all for the work you did for me.

So here is the situation. Today was warmest December day in recorded history of my home town, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. My parents asked me help get up some leaves from the backyard. There were some boards where I was working, now these boards had been there for years and had nothing bad happen before. I was cleaning leaves when I board stuck to my shoe. I got the board off, and then went to take a step low and behold there was still a rusty nail in my shoe and it went in my foot.
I quick trip to the ER, a tetanus booster shot and a bottle of antibiotics. I will be alright, but hey more time it sit around watch ponies.

VIDA LA DERP! VIDA LA DERP!!
The new voice is a bit more girly then the first. I am fine with either one, but I still like :iconbalddumborat: Balddumborat voice the most. But, the thing that make it really bad is the fact that they had to take out Derpy's name and they toned down her eyes. I thought this week could not get any worse. I guess I was wrong.
KING SOMBRAWhy don't we flesh out Sombra a little more. After watching Season 3 twice I honestly feel the more I watch Sombra the more I'm starting to like him. Yes he definitely needs improvement. But I feel everypony is judging him way too harshly. Lets look at the things everyone is complaining about him.KING SOMBRA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Screentime: Sombra is barely seen throughout the whole episode except for a few scenes while he's looming over the Empire and when he finally enters. However, I feel even though his face wasn't shown he was in there deep in the minds of the Crystal Ponies. The Crystal Ponies quivered in fear at the mention of his name. All through the episode the Mane Six are trying to cheer them up, however Sombra uses his magic to slowly infect the empire bringing fear to the Crystal Ponies. Sombra's action is what counted through the lack of screen time. He didn't need to show himself all the time. His actions and ways of bringing terror and fear was enough for him.
2. Barely any voice lines: Yes, Sombr

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.
.....yes. I have been playing Hitman too long.

Learning to read, with Jolly Jack.Well, that was fun.Learning to read, with Jolly Jack.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as not
Brainwashing Concentration Camps, FOR KIDS!http://www.reddit.com/r/atheism/comments/q6is0/in_september_2009_after_admitting_to_my_parents/Brainwashing Concentration Camps, FOR KIDS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Evidentally several schools like this one exist across the country. They exist to pound the ever-living shit out of kids until they bend to some notion of "normality" (the socially-conservative fundamentalist kind). Your parents' sign away their and your's rights, the school kidnaps you, cuts off all contact from the outside world for you, beats you, tortures you, brainwashes you until you're a broken husk of a human being. Oh, and don't "act up" or they'll send you to Jamaica where it's even easier to cut you off from the rest of the world. And child labor laws are much weaker there.
All to "cure" you being gay, or atheist, or socially awkward, or what have you. For just 3000 a month, your child can be 'normal' too.
And apparently this is legal.
What in the ever loving fuck??

Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.
