Drawing attitude...AKA "pondering why you draw in the first place?"Drawing attitude3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Warning: this may contain some rambling.
Something that has been confusing me for a while is a certain sort of - shall we say interesting attitude among my fellow artists. Namely, the idea of "my art is not good enough" or "people will look at me weirdly if I draw differently." And I really, really would like to see this kind of attitude go. Honestly, as long as you draw on your free time, for free, does it matter what people think of your art? Yes, getting positive comments and critique is fun, we all love that. But that should not be the main reason you draw.
I guess for those of us who have been drawing way before ponies and/or are as stubborn as me about sticking to their own thing, it is easier to continue doing so. Changing your own attitude about how to do things is not easy. But stop and think about it for a moment: who do you draw for in the first place? Yourself or someone else? Do you draw because it is
Go home, internet. You're drunk.Over the past 24 hours I've had nearly as many chain comments posted to my account. They're all the same, some vague Ringu-inspired nonsense about dying if you read the message and if you post it to ten accounts you'll go on a really awesome date. Seriously, it's like the worst urban legend ever. It's like if you said Candyman in the mirror three times and he showed up to give you a winning lottery ticket and a back rub.Go home, internet. You're drunk.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The point is, please do not post this on my pictures or profile. I'll just mark it as spam. This isn't 1997, all the chain mail threats and legend are disproved by now. Nobody has died because they didn't forward the chain, and nobody is getting kissed by their super-secret crush because they did.
Also, apparently this silly picture I posted on my Tumblr last week is a meme now. I'm very sorry.
WHY are you ashamed??? Stop it!I just do NOT get it.WHY are you ashamed??? Stop it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've read or heard from so many people that are afraid to admit they enjoy My Little Pony, in any form. I just read in a forum for issue 3, "Man I wish I had the guts to buy one of these comics in person."
WHAT is stopping you? Because somebody might point and laugh? Laugh back! Everybody is entitled to like whatever they wish. Some like football, some like movie collecting, some like gardening... whatever.
For years, I worked at a bookstore. We sold Adult magazines, like every other store. People would come up, buy it, move on. 5 seconds later none of us could identify that person if we had too... it didn't matter, it meant nothing. However, the people who came up to the counter with said magazine hidden under items they really didn't want so people wouldn't see what they were buying, or whispering about it... These were the people that stood out as strange... the ones that MADE a big deal of it themselves.
I'm NOT comparing MLP to these magazines, by the way. I'

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Ponyscape v0.2! This is the continuation of my work on tweaking Inkscape to add new features and make it more user friendly! This new version adds a few very useful features, and updates the base to the latest revision of Inkscape. I also was able to fix a few bugs and submitted a patch to upstream Inkscape (which got accepted!). I've been working on this version, and have been concurrently working on a couple of vectors which I will hopefully get around to uploading soon.
I have compiled binary packages for both Windows and Linux Mint 14 (should also work on Ubuntu 12.10). To use, download the zip file and extract it wit

Today, our already created blip account was taken down too. So we can't use blip to host the mentally advanced series on our site atm. I'd ask, if you are willing, please take the time to help us out by submitting arequest form (http://support.blip.tv/anonymous_requests/new), telling them something akin to "give dawnsomewhere back their account and allow them to post".
Under url you can put our old account page: blip.tv/dawnsomewhere/
and for username you put our name: dawnsomewhere
We'll see if this works. If not, we'll just have to find some other way. Rainbow Dash Presents is fine btw - it's just the Mentally Advanced Series.

You are free to pay for the commission before or after its completed. Although I prefer before.
I have the right to deny your commission if it is too complicated for me. Sorry!
Please do not rush me while I'm working on your commission! I am a huge procrastinator. If you have a deadline you'd like it done by you can let me know, but set the deadline at least 5 days away from the date you commission.
I will only take 5 commission slots at once. Once those slots are filled they'll be closed until all of the commissions are complete.
When you commission me, send a me a note with information about what you would like. Please give me clear references!
I do point commissions and paypal commissions. For paypal commissions, note me for my email.

Blip is a no-goAlright, Greg heard back from blip. Their response is on our website: http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/2013/01/24/the-blip-verdict/Blip is a no-go2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Essentially, they said they wont be giving our account back. For those who submitted requests on our behalf, thank y'all for your support, but complaints don't change these policies unfortunately. While our stuff legally falls under 'fair use' laws, Blip has their own interests to look after and they don't have the time to verify everything. Essentially we're guilty until proven innocent, and the burden of proof is on us, the accused, not the accuser. That's just the internet landscape we live in nowadays.
That said, we will certainly find another method of hosting the mentally advanced series on our site; Y'all need not worry. If you find yourself going through withdrawals however and need to watch an episode of the mentally advanced series that is blocked you can download any/all of the episodes from the link posted on our forum here: http://www.dawnsomewher
Devious Journal EntryOkay, I just got home from school, and let me sayDevious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
today was boring
but, the bus ride home TOTALLY made up for that.
You see, on our way home, me and my sister always sit together on the bus. As usual, I was listening to my music with headphones in (Brony music of course xb).
My sister suddenly starts jabbing me in the arm, wanting me to listen to her, so I remove one of my earbuds
She says to me: "Can't you hear that? it's Ponies!" I'm just confused cause I still have music playing in my other ear. She tells me to listen so I take out my earphones and listen reaaally hard...
What do I hear? Nothing other than a bunch of screaming kids e_e
But when I listen harder, I hear Alex S.'s MLP intro Glitch remix! One of my favourite MLP remixes ever <3
(link plz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2R677MV--WI )
I was a bit confused at first, but I realized it was coming from the front of the bus. After it ended, I went and put on the same song as well, after unplugging my earphones. The t

Now then! Let's just skip ahead to the rules and whatnot~
Be sure to read them carefully!
~ I reserve the rights to alter the rules should I need to. If this happens you all will be notified ^^
~ You may only vote for the ponies listed below
~ You have to vote for three ponies. No more, no less. Any votes that don't follow this will not be counted
~ One vote per pony; you can not give all your votes to one pony! That would defeat the purpose!
~ Please be respectful!
~ Only ponies in the running may post a journal. However, it must be the journal I personally send to everyone via Notes; anyone caught having a journal that wasn't the one I sent them will be given a warning, then will be removed from the running should they fail to comply, so please be patient and wait for the Note!
The voting process will finish <
We've found a hostWe're going to use longtail to host the episodes on our site. Longtail is the same web-host that derby.tv uses - it's a nice player that works across all platforms - smartphones and tablets included. So huzzah!We've found a host2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We'll be getting the episodes up and nicely embedded on our website over the weekend and we'll upload redirects on youtube soon.
For more information, read Greg's tumblr post: http://fimflamfilosophy.tumblr.com/post/41474238862/light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel
Ok, as Greg pointed out below, I technically got the host wrong. WE are our host. The files are uploaded and streamed directly from our website. The Longtail player is simply the codec wee use to stream the content. So ya! That means WE control the content and can't have the videos taken down on a whim.
To see the player yourself, you can watch episode 12 now on our site: http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/mentally-advanced-series/mas-episode-12/

Fluttershy, you clever girl!I just read this article on being persuasive on Lifehacker: http://lifehacker.com/5982658/but-you-are-free-is-a-super%20simple-persuasion-technique-anyone-could-useFluttershy, you clever girl!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are lots of techniques for becoming more persuasive, but perhaps the simplest, most practical technique is the "But You Are Free" method. A review of 42 psychology studies (on 22,000 people) suggests this technique could double the chances someone would say "yes" to you. Read on to see how this works. If you want to, that is.
See what I did there? That's the "But You Are Free" technique, basically: Make a request, but acknowledge the other person has a choice.
This is so Fluttershy's technique! She's a mastermind of manipulation! You have to believe me. Or don't believe me; it's up to you.

I'm going to need a lot of pegasi to fill Cloudsdale with.
Leave OC cameo requests in the comments below - be sure to include a link to a picture of them. (don't be posting OC creator codes and expect me to include your OC that way - just screen-shot it and post it on imgur.com.... it's not that hard guys...)
They have to be pegasi (no alicorns, mud ponies, or master race ponies)
Also, I may not be able to use everybody's OC, but I'll try to include as many as I can. Just a word of warning tho - if it's too "edgy" looking, I may not use it - i don't want the background characters to be distracting.
