Heaven's Hell - The Art BookThere are artists who I admire because of their style and work. I admire them and I want to be where they are now. Working as a concept artists. They gave me goal and dreams.
But there are artists who I admire because they helped me reaching that goal. When I started to take digital art and overall art seriously (which wasn't that long ago) I found some artists who showed me how to do things and I doubt I would be here if they didn't help me. One of them is :iconk04sk:
I watched many of his LiveStreams and he taught me so many things. And not so long ago he asked his watchers to spread the word about art book (Heaven's Hell) his friend is publishing so here is the link to his journal entry: http://k04sk.deviantart.com/#/d5p2q7g

Because laughter is always the best cureI must confess, I started this week in a bit of a foul mood. My Tumblr Dashboard, my Twitter homepage, even my personal email were overflowing with "OMG! HAVE YOU SEEN THE LYRA SEX TOY! MY LITTLE PONY IS RUINED FOREVER!!!!" messages. All of them complete with photographic evidence. Everywhere I turned, from Reddit to Ponibooru was like the ruined battlefield of a civil war reenactment staged by green pony butts. And you know what? The first, let's say, dozen times I saw it, I said to myself "Self, that's the end. It was a fun ride, but it's time to nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." Then I realized I was talking to myself again, and decided to just sit back, relax, and avoid the plot that devours nations.Because laughter is always the best cure3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Ponyscape v0.3!!Happy New Year Everypony!!Ponyscape v0.3!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm proud to announce the release of version 0.3 of Ponyscape!! This is a continuation of the work on version 0.2, and includes some really cool new features! I've spent most of my time off during by holiday break working on and tweaking things in this release.
I have compiled binary packages for both Windows and Linux Mint 14 64-bit (should also work on Ubuntu 12.10). On Windows, download the zip file and extract it with 7zip or winrar and run ponyscape.exe. On Linux, download the deb package and install it by running "sudo dpkg -i " or using a GUI package installer of your choice. You can download these binary packages here:
Alternatively, you can download the entire source code and compile from scratch. I can confirm that compiling works on both Windows and Linux, and hopefully

Salutations, readers! Welcome to what I hope will be a recurring installment in my journal: Kobrakin's Greatest Hits!
Now, during my long recovery period from the herniated disc in my back (which is almost totally back to normal now!), I have been unable to work on any of my writing. As such, the primary contributions I've made to DA in the past few months have been in the form of my comments.
Now, these comments are ones that I put a great deal of effort into writing and staging with appropriate "Plz" icons. Currently, most of them are My Little Pony related, but I still have a good deal more comments left to dig up. These are just the ones I could find with minimal effort. For each comment, I will supply a link to the comment directly, and a link to deviation I made it on. Pretty much all of them are inspired by the artwork or story I was commen

Value your life.
This is such a simple yet overlooked sentence.
My best friend is going through depression and she's recently been making posts about suicide.
I saw one of them and it read
"Kill me. Just do it. I'm causing everyone I know pain. ... I can never do anything right. I feel that I'm screwing up so many people and their lives that I can't take it any more... I want to die..."
After she posted this, she went offline for a good 15 minutes and neither me nor another friend could contact her.
I've never been so scared in my life.
The fact that she believes she's worthless and a screw up in my eyes is nothing short of bullshit. She means so much to me and us as a group of friends that during this 15 minutes I was actually lost.
Yes; she's right. I can't come close to understanding how she feels. I do not suffer from depression, nor do I have a life at home that ma
Message from DrawponiesHello everyone, Neil Wacaster here, which some of you know as Drawponies. You may have heard the reports that I have traced screenshots from the show in my art and that I have been selling traced artwork at conventions.Message from Drawponies3 months ago in Personal More Like This
While I have done hundreds of original art pieces, it is true that some of my art has been traced from the show - particularly for things that we wanted to get out quickly for viewers, such as comic strips. I have focused on selling original artwork at conventions, but there have been cases where artwork was traced. I sincerely apologize for doing this, and for hurting those who have watched me. I also wish to apologize to those who feel they have been cheated by me. I should have taken the time to create art completely from scratch, instead of taking an easy way out to fill a quota or get something done quickly. From now on, I will be doing original artwork no matter how long it takes.
Let me address the other points that people are making:

It is with great pride that I present to you Ponyscape version 0.4!! It's been nearly a month in the making, and I think it's come quite a ways! For anyone who doesn't know, Ponyscape is my custom-built derivative of Inkscape, a vector art creation program, which adds features and fixes bugs pertaining to all artists (but especially useful to pony artists).
You can find the changelog for previous versions in their respective journals:

Update #2: I'm still taking requests until tomorrow night before I decide who is doing what, but we definitely won't need anyone to make two squares now! In fact I am going to need to put a few people on the back-up list. Remember that being on the back-up list absolutely does not mean I don't think you are awesome enough to participate, it just means that we have a ton of people! Maybe if the people on the backup list want to we can make some extra squares and make matching pillow cases, or a second smaller wall-hanging quilt! Though I lean towards pillow cases because they wouldn't need batting and quilting. Let me know what you all think of that idea!
Update: I know I gave people until Friday night so there is still time for responses, but I
Season Wrap UpWell, season 2 has finally come to a close, and I'm sitting here and looking back on it all, with a few thoughts I want to share.Season Wrap Up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just want to say thank you (again) to everyone that watched and enjoyed the MLP season finale this weekend. There were lots of hard nights and long hours from all of us on the DHX crew to make it the best would possibly could. Of course, there are things that are always going to be imperfect, but overall from what I gather, it seemed well-received.
I was also shocked at how many people recognized my OC pony that made a small cameo in this weekend's episode. As a blanket response to a lot of the same questions I've been getting all weekend: No, I did not voice her and I'm unsure as to who did. I would assume just one of the regular VA's. She was put in kind of last minute. The artist who drew her in the storyboard, made her look like my pony (just a coincidence), and after seeing i

on another note, there have been a LOT of questions... I'll try to give a blanket coverage here to what I can.
First, I cannot give you sneak peeks. Sorry, but waiting is part of the game and half the fun! When IDW and Hasbro give a thumbs up, it will come here first!
Second: Yes, these are original stories (no, I'm not gonna tell you what it is yet!), not adaptations of existing episodes. This gives us the chance to do things that maybe couldn't be done in an episode due to time restriction or other limitations! The target audience is the exact same as the show, meaning it will be great for kids and adults alike. We know what a major fa
[FoE] We need some kind of hub.Hey everyone,[FoE] We need some kind of hub.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This journal post is mostly meant for Fallout: Equestria fans, I know some of you watched me for my FoE drawings (and the cheap commissions, huehuehue), so I'm talking to you guys in the first place
(yes, this is some form of elitism, and yes, I'm an ass ).
As many of you know, the FoE community is scattered across the vast Internet, on various websites like Equestria Daily, deviantArt, Reddit, the Wiki or even 4Chan. And I'm probably forgetting a lot of them. The point here is : We don't have a central hub, someplace we could really meet each other, and in a way, keep the community alive through more than just art, music and stories (and more, yes, but that's not really the point). The place where I always get news and updates from is the subreddit. deviantArt is where I find the latest creations of the fandom...but I think that a website working a bit like Equestria daily does ("drawfriend stuffs", "music of the day", "author spotlight", etc...) could make

2. I need to be paid half of the agreed upon price up front, and only when you are happy with the outcome will you need to pay me the other half
