3D PRINTED PONY COMMISSIONSHow many times have you said to yourself "Man, I really want a show-accurate toy of _____, but there isn't one, and commissioning a sculptor would cost too much."3D PRINTED PONY COMMISSIONS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
RABIDPEEP AND I HAVE A 3D PRINTER. WE CAN MAKE TOYS OF ANYTHING. Want a figure of that one pony in that crazy pose from that one episode? WE CAN MAKE IT. ANYPONY. ANY POSE.
What the Heck?! How is this possible?
Okay, okay no. First I model the pony up in 3DS Max. That's right, no lifting free models off the internet—we custom-model these toys to order. I export the model, and then it gets converted into code for the printer. About eight hours later, we've got an unruly mess of plastic that has to be trimmed, at which point I usually slice all my fingers open with the X-acto knife. Twice. Then we throw it in a chamber with boiled acetone vapor to give it a quick smooth down befo

Men"Men don't write things!Men3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Men kill wild boar and the blood splatter spells out what they want to say!
Men don't even own computers!
They live in lavishly decorated caves and eat raw meat while smoking cigars and playing guitars and are constantly walking away from explosions without looking back.
Real men work out by strangling nazis and saving orphans, kittens and women from various threats.
They also all fly jets in their spare time and go skydiving without a parachute, surviving the fall every time by punching death in the face, thus coming away unharmed.
Men never speak.
They communicate purely through fist fights."
Was talking to a friend about what a man is.
Sometimes I laugh at my own jokes.
This was one of those times.
Thought I'd share.

All new fursuit makers, are you ready?Something that has been going around in my head for the past week as I've watched a ton of new makers jumping out of the woodworks, eager to take on commissions. Making suits is great and can be a great hobby, but for those that are wanting to continue making them beyond the Hobby mark, ask yourself these questions...All new fursuit makers, are you ready?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Do I have the time to dedicate to this?
On average I will work 12-16 hour 'shift' days making suits, 6 days a week. I will take a day or two off to loosen up and relax, but perhaps ever 2 weeks or so. To keep up with the demand and the work load it takes a ton of my time, often sacrificing fun events such as the movies or a bon fire.
2. Do you have the space?
I started working off of my bed, then out of the spare bedroom. Small projects don't take up space, but larger ones certainly do. Do you have the space needed for furs, tools, cutting, sewing, and other things of the sort?
3. Do you have the dedication?
Fursuit making can not only be rewarding, but it can also be

Dear arrogant artistsThis is not a call-out journal. I am just trying to make a point.Dear arrogant artists3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Don't be an arrogant artist. If you're good at something, that's awesome. But don't rub it in other peoples faces or call others art "awful" or "crappy" just because you're a little better. It's really not a nice quality and it makes people not want to be around you. More importantly, it kills creativity in others. There's no need to harshly criticize their work just because you don't like it. You had to learn your skill just like everyone else. Being a good artist isn't someting reserved for only a few people, like you might think. Get over yourselves, please. Be nice, and encourage one another. If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all.
Edit: Just wanted to add, if you want to critique someones work, be kind. "Your art sucks" is not constructive criticism, even though you might think so.

What plush is it that I'm giving away? A 6 inch tall Vinyl Scratch! Hand made for one lucky watcher, she's made of fleece, a throwback to my early days of pony plushing. She's the smallest pony I've ever made, and probably the last pony of that size I'll ever make. Hand embroidered features and hand sewn tail and body, she's a very lovingl
Possibly clearing my gallery. Fresh start.I must say beforehand that I might be getting through some tough stuff in the following weeks. This might or might not affect my work flow but fear not, your support is the main reason which keeps me working, so I must strive to stay activePossibly clearing my gallery. Fresh start.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Nothing bad happened in my personal life, don't worry. The main reason behind this is a possible change of my work status and if I success I might end up in game industry again, who knows.
Will commissions return any time soon? Most likely yes.
Now about the gallery. I feel like I need to push myself a little harder towards the general evolution of my artistic sense and technical progress, and there is nothing better to do but to let in some fresh air, have some fun with art again. So IF, I say, IF I decide to leave some of my oldest works behind, I will create an online archive for everyone to access and download so that nothing is lost.
It's spring, I can (hopefully) feel some good changes coming up.

I am VERY dissatisfied with the ruling on the Hobby Lobby Case. No, I am infuriated.
Yes, I understand it's only 4 little things they will not allow insurance to cover. That's not the point.
The point is that they had no right.
Before you start cussing me out or anything, everyone pays a premium for their insurance. So, we are PAYING for OUR insurance. Therefore, does that really make it right for your boss to say what care you get?
To top it off, women's health care is NOT cheap. I've already read stories of women who went in for their check-ups and the like. and because in one, she dared bring up birth control pills, and get a new prescription... the WHOLE visit was not covered by her insurance. $600 for the visit alone, and no idea what she had to pay for her medication.
AND! To top THAT off, I am so sick and tired of people calling women whores for using birth control. "I'm not going to pay for your sex!" Ask any wom
