ClarificationBecause people keep asking about the lack of Jim x Dolphy art and my obsession with „Rise of the Guardians“ I guess I have to clarify something ( although I'm pretty fed up with having to justify myself ).Clarification11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I still adore “Treasure Planet” and Jim, but after being a fan for almost 12 years and hundreds of pictures my inspiration has gone on vacation.
In 2012 I suffered from a really bad depression. I felt alone and miserable and wanted to force myself to finally grow up and stop obsessing over animated movies and buying merchandise like a maniac. I knew that’s what made me happy but for some reason thought I had to change because I was getting older and had to act more according to my age. I cried a lot and well, felt like crap. And then I went to the cinema with a friend to watch RotG. And immediately noticed this movie was doing me good. I had the urge to watch it again and again and every time I did it made me happy. I started drawing fanart and reading f

You can draw Humanoid Minkin for prompts as long as it follows the canon concept. (They live in the wild still- please no modern/cultural clothing and environments, etc).

Grem copies and YOUOKAy so I've been getting this through notes numerous times and im sort of starting to get tired of getting it xDGrem copies and YOU4 months ago in Personal More Like This
SO IM BRINGING THIS TO LIGHT
I DO NOT OWN BIRD FEET/CHICKEN LEGS
I DO NOT OWN ROUND HEADS
I DO NOT OWN ANTHRO'S
if a character ONLY had these things, that doesnt consider them to be copied from grems
What i do considered to be a copied concept of a grem would be this:
-a complete grem trace-over/carbon copied look (fat arms,grape fingers, tasty thighs, same physique, added on with round head, forked tongue, copied eyes and chicken legs) if it has ALL of these things, then it is copied
-a complete copied look of my species sheets/species traits
-thievery of traits that look exactly the same as what my grems would have on
-colour design thievery (im talking about the legit design, i dont not own colours)
-thievery of lore and background information
i tried my hardest to make grems stand out and look different from anything else, so it isn't hard to find out
A Falling Stars contest! CLOSED!Baby ponies! A Falling Stars contest!A Falling Stars contest! CLOSED!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Falling Stars (later in the text referred to as "FS"), characters and story, gets so much love, attention and kindness!
Is it now on a level where "there is so much love in the room, it creates another person"?
What to do? Design a baby pony between any possible FS combination!
You can use either:
FS + FS character
or FS characer + your own design/character
To be able to win all the prizes I need your permission to use your character in the next adventure. (see more below).
or just a clever 'from-a-single-parent" baby, like the first line of MLP toys. (I don't remember how the baby ponies reflected the parent in the following generations).
Preferred if both mom, dad and baby are visible in the picture so we can see what a delightful mix the baby is. (It's ok if you feel like doing mom + mom + baby or dad

Is a amazing book for understanding anatomy through SHAPES and curves rather than complex forms. I just got contacted for it and I feel its relevant to share the resource since I had to ask someone on facebook for the title dur
I have no anatomy books for animals at this time that I can "share" since they are handbooks that are compiled but If you want to understand the process of drawing animals I was taught in this order.
Gazelles, Giraffes (you can see the bones)
Zebra, Kangroo (you can see less of the bones, muscle blocks)
Rhino, Hippo (teaches bulky shapes)
Lion, Bear (all together)
In this order because drawing one thing about these animals will then help you understand the next bracket of animals. I highly recommend the book. Also drawing skeletons from life is fabu.

The VoidWhen I lost my faith in god, it was no great personal cataclysm. It simply fell away. My fall was a snake sloughing its skin or a woman removing her coat on an overwarm day. Faith was simply something I no longer needed. But I can't pretend there wasn't a void. There was and there still is. There may always be. That void is what I feel when I think about dying. Do not mistake me, I am not afraid of death. Not at all. Not even a little bit. But I regret. I regret that my story will end. I regret that my loved ones' stories will end. I regret that I won't see others' stories through. Most of all, I regret that I won't see how the big story ends.The Void2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Lets Talk About DesignsBecause it has been irking me a lot lately.Lets Talk About Designs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you may or may not have seen various bits of drama floating around player created breeds these past few months. Now, that doesn't really interest me, however something that has been brought up time and time again during these spats of drama is an issue that I feel is important to address: designs (and points).
Now, I might share the slightly unpopular opinion that artists should be charging for their designs. Which sounds like a reasonable thing here I'm sure, but a lot of people have been expressing the view that owners of breeds should do free customs, or designs. Which in my opinion is lunacy.
A design, like any other type of artwork, takes time. And I classify them as artwork, because they are. Making a good design is hard, think I'm lying? Then have a look around at all the bad points designs floating around. It takes time, patience and practice to get good at designing, and I think that work should be paid for in however the art
On Art TheftIf you’ve ever followed my Deviantart journals in the past you will know that I have a pretty open policy regarding the usage of my art. My policy allows for repostings/recoloring/edits/tracings/what-have-you, as long as it is all for personal use and not-for-profit (meaning it isn’t being sold, auctioned, or any use wherein money changes hands.) I also allow roleplaying of my characters, and fan art (of course)!On Art Theft1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Still though, I get a lot of people coming to me with examples of where people have traced/recolored/edited/reposted my pieces. The person contacting me will often also comment on the “offenders” work, or contact them privately to scold them on my behalf.
While I appreciate that people would care enough to watch out for me, as it were, my preference is that these people are left alone. There are a good number of pretty young BBA fans. I am written “fan mail” all the time by young people who weren’t artists before, but started dra

My Christmas ExperienceLast year, when I came down to visit family for the holidays, I ended up seeing my extended family on my dad's side (it was the first time I'd see them while presenting en femme). It went pretty sour. There were a couple dozen people there; four of whom said "hi" to me and nothing else. Everyone else just avoided me like the plague. My grandmother wouldn't even look at me. That hit me really hard and left me depressed for months (I don't think I ever discussed it on DA though). Thankfully, progress has happened since, and over the course of the year I got back into contact with two of my aunts. That's still only a fraction of the people that were there, but progress is progress.My Christmas Experience11 months ago in Personal More Like This
On that same note, while I didn't see my grandmother herself this year, she dropped off Christmas cards at the house. The envelope actually reads "Joshalyn" while it still says "Josh" inside the card. I... really have to give her credit for trying. This is actually kin

Hope all you lovely people are well.
So 2013. What a year it has been!
The end of 2012 saw me make the spontaneous decisions to move off of campus and find a rental with a friend from uni, so for the first few weeks was a mad rush trying to sort applications, show troughs and a third house mate.
This was all while I went off for an amazing 10 day vacation to Vanuatu which I was fortunate enough to have my 20th birthday while over there. They say the the people there are the most friendly on the planet and I 100% agree with that. Everywhere you go they all smile and say hello to you. The Islands are so beautiful. Snorkeling there is sensation, the coral, the fish and the water are just perfect. While over I got to post a letter in an under water post box, go swimming in a lagoon while atop of horse after taking an amazing ride through the mountains. I had an awesome day driving around the harbor in these jet ski boat things that were

"For each item sold at the RainComicStore, I will crochet a chemo-cap and donate it to Knots of Love. I am holding this drive in honor of two special people I've lost in the past year: My childhood friend, Lauren Rousseau, who died tragically at Sandy Hook Elementary one year ago today. The second, my close friend, Gail Zimmerman St. Louis, who lost her battle with lung cancer this past May. When I have finished making all of the caps, I will post a picture of them."

BJD's- how I'm enjoying working on them so farAs some may have seen, the opportunity arised for me to customize a couple of commissioned ball jointed dolls in my pre-existing art style and quality.BJD's- how I'm enjoying working on them so far2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm finding it's taking a lot longer to make these than it does my ponies, so far~ it's a very interesting, one of a kind experience that I'm honored to have the opportunity to have.
So far it's been a matter of transitioning my skills over to a much larger scale doll base which is also quite different from the smaller ponies I'm used to working on.
Out-wardly, I'm going to be honest, it seems like I'm receiving a lot of negative energy regarding the dolls. I'm very sensitive and embarrass easily, and I don't cope with negative energy very well most of the time. I typically try to shield myself from it and run from it.
My form is logging out of websites such as deviantArt and FurAffinity, not wanting to log back in, and just focus on the dolls as I work on them for days.

UghI went up my local canyon to see what it was like in this early spring weather. Really muddy still from all the snow melt, but pretty none the less.Ugh2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And what do I find again? More litter from lazy and uncaring people. Seriously guys I, and alot of other hikers don't want to see your crap graciously thrown into a creek or a lovely little glade. Not only does it look unattractive to other people who walk in the canyon, but it can be dangerous to the surrounding wildlife because they can be a bit stupid when it comes to items like water bottle caps, beer cans, and plastic bags. Sometimes a passing bird will look at a shiny water bottle cap and then consume it, they consume more until their digestive systems become terminally blocked, and they die.
What made me especially angry last year was seeing two, oversized plastic bags in one of my favorite glades. with a recently made campfire around it too. (seriously guys? Your making fires in a tinderbox forest? One of these days this plac

What is a "Secret Santa"
Secret Santa is a western holiday tradition in which participants are randomly assigned another participant to give a gift to. Despite the name, it is open to everyone, regardless of your traditions/beliefs. No one is excluded
What is "Equine Secret Santa"
The idea is to take the general rules of Secret Santa and apply them to equines via artwork. After you submit your name to me with some information and references (if you don't have an equine character you can tell me your favorite color/breed of horse), I will assign you another participant. It is your job to create a piece of artwork for that participant. At the same time, your name will be given to someone else, who w
