AND I'm actually up-to-date with my assignments!!!
I'm so proud of myself
I'm making adoptables! I think it's about time I had another contest, but when it comes to prizes I have nothing to offer
I owe people 's, you see
So expect to see some adoptables soon!
Also, I'm not re-opening point commissions at this point. However, I will be doing art trades
Just...if we do an art trade, it's best to wait until I finish my half. I have a tendency to either not bother or forget
And, because I haven't done a feature in awhile...

Thousand Watcher Contest Judging Event FINAL ROUND VOTING HERE: http://fireflytwinkletoes.deviantart.com/journal/poll/3147751/Thousand Watcher Contest Judging Event1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hello all! I am so happy at the response that I got for my thousand watcher contest! Thank you to everyone who participated. Now, since I didn't anticipate getting so many entries (there are 78! Wow!) and I can't possibly judge that many fairly by myself, I am going to divide them into 6 groups of 10 and 2 groups of 9 at random, and have you guys vote on which ones you think BEST MEET THE CRITERIA OF THE CONTEST. I'll then pick one out of the 8 finalists to win the plush. I'll reiterate the important rules here:
PLEASE READ THE RULES BEFORE VOTING
Rules of the contest:
PLEASE judge primarily on INVENTIVENESS and CREATIVITY, and only secondarily on drawing ability. The purpose of this constest was not to see who could draw best!

Progress... For Reals!So the 120% stallion prototype is sewn and awaiting head attachment and his hair. I think the head changes worked and solved the issues with the chin. Look for pictures tomorrow (assuming all goes well with finishing his hair tonight). He got the more curved of the two male head shapes, which turned out almost exactly the way I imagined it (for once!). I'm very relieved, as I want to move on from designing heads and finish the body designs I'm doing.Progress... For Reals!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To balance out the success, the next princess prototype body that I was putting together on the sly looks like a wreck. Her butt is better, but her back legs are still in the wrong place. I hate when I make changes and think "I should really go more drastic here, but let's play it safe" and the right answer was to go with my gut and make drastic changes. -_-' Anyhow, pictures of her will have to wait until her head is done... probably next week.
I started the draft horse prototype as well (I've clearly learned nothing about working on t

First Successful Plushie/Custom TradeI would like to thank *buttsnstuff for a lovely trade. It was my first time trading a custom pony for a plushie and it went well.First Successful Plushie/Custom Trade3 months ago in Personal More Like This
*buttsnstuff was the one to first propose this trade months ago and I'm glad she did. At first, she wanted to trade a plushie for a standard sized Derpy. It didn't seem fair to trade a small pony for such an adorable plushie so I upgraded it to a fashion sized custom pony later on.
I love this filly Twilight plushie! She's made from high quality fabric, she's ultra soft and the beads in her hooves allow her to stand firmly on my shelf.
Since this trade went well, I would love to do trades in the future. If anyone has an offer, don't be afraid to message me
(I'm shipping out her pony on Monday)
She also threw in a button and a bunch of cute stickers. I love them all!

Plush Giveaway For Education FundraiserHi Every PonyPlush Giveaway For Education Fundraiser4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Normally I keep all of my charitable fundraising and giving
Autonomous. But after talking to some of my local Bronys and some DA Bronys I decided to include my DA fans in this fundraiser.
Here's what I am fundraising for.
My local neighborhood elementary school is adding a fine arts music program for 1st thru 5th grade. So that means a new classroom and a new teacher.
The classroom is there. It just needs to be supplied. The teacher (who happens to LOVE FlutterShy and is a lot like her being a music teacher and a bit Shy) is brand new. Its her first year teaching. She could use a lot of things to make this music program a great experience for the kids and their families.
Now here's the good part. For the donations we receive from DA there will be a raffle for one of my plushes.
This will start today August 15th and will end on September 7th
Please note me for donation information.
Here are the rules
1. For every $5 you donate you will get 1 raffle ticket
Progress, Wheeeeeee!So the next princess pony prototype is sewn. She needs hair and I've got the files for the newer hair set ready to cut tonight or tomorrow. I think the head is just about in it's final form and I'm relatively happy with how the body come out. I tried something different with the shape of her flanks and I think most of it worked. The pattern needs tweaking, but I'm optimistic that it's down to tweaking, not totally rebuilding the hindquarters like I was afraid of before (done that like three times now x_x ).Progress, Wheeeeeee!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
There should be pictures of some sort tonight or tomorrow; she'll probably still be mostly bald and wingless. Her finished mane and tail should be done this weekend if the new pattern works out.
Then I need to do the body tweaks and start on the next text pony. I'm simultaneously testing some alt-pose and accessory pieces, so you'll probably see those over the next few weeks.
I'm optimistic about the shape of the crowns and I haven't yet decided if I'm

Welcome, and on to the first order of business!If you're reading this, then you've found yourself at the MLP Plushcraftin' Guild's DeviantArt group. I'm glad to have you, and I really have no idea what I'm doing! As stated in the page's "about" the group is to get together folks who all plush little ponies. I know that when I started plushing, I was real awkward about approaching others for help, and so I often ended up just looking on google or figuring things out on my own, sometimes for the better, but sometimes for the worse. I'm hoping that this group will help get folks, both new and not, unknown and well known, together to share info/things or just to chat. Perhaps this group will be redundant, perhaps not, but regardless, welcome again!Welcome, and on to the first order of business!5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So first order of business: We need a logo! Something to stick right up there next to our name. If this thing is gonna work (big if!), then we need a snazzy pictorial imagery thingamawhatsit. Well, we don't need it. But it'd be snazzier all the same.

How to be popular on dA? +Question to good people.I've been asked few times "what did you do that you became popular?". And I don't know what to answer due to simple problem. The thing is.. I'm not popular at all! When saying "popular" I think about people who have few million pageviews, get 5-10k favs on every piece etc. This is popularity! What can I say about popularity at that level I'm familiar with? I'll try to explain it in few points.How to be popular on dA? +Question to good people.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
First? Remember that deviantART is COMMUNITY! Come on, spend some time to go around this page, comment on other people's stuff, make some friends! Of course do not try to befriend people just to get benefits from it, it doesn't work that way! The best explanation? Have fun! Spend more time on dA than 2 minutes just to check your inbox. The more you're involved with dA community the bigger chance that you will get noticed! "Forunth watches 3,082 people, while 918 people watch Forunth." <-- see?
Other thing, originality. Let's imagine, you have drawn portrait of a random woman with pencils

During the time when I was not quite so much of a mess I did some work on the Princess Pattern. I have another prototype and I want to finish her mane and tail before I post pictures. She's got some significant flaws, but things are moving in the right direction. This pattern is teaching me a lot about the theory of stuffed toy pattern making and why certain types of joints and shapes produce certain output 3D volumes.
I drafted a 2 part butt gore to separate the back legs differently and I'm happy to say that it doesn't make her butt look overly defined (that kinda freaks me out in some plushies). It's cute and round and stuffed toy like instead of looking semi-anatomical. I also improved some of the leg/tummy and chest issues that have been driving me
Maid Fluttershy (-SOLD-)Hello guys! ^______^Maid Fluttershy (-SOLD-)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am offering you my whole pride here: Fluttershy with a maid dress. She is made of minky fabric (from Shannon Fabrics). Eyes and cutie marks are machine-embroidered with high-quality yarn (mostly from Madeira). Her maid dress is made of 100% cotton and completely self made (Not a single ribbon is bought, everything is selfmade: pleating, ironing and sewing). It was very important for me, that you can easily dress and undress her. You can close her skirt and top with a hook and loop fastener, her socks are having an elastic band and her headdress got a wire sewed in. (Clip it slightly behind her ears, you can take a closer look on the photos!)
She is unique! If I'm going to make a maid Fluttershy again, I'll change the outfit slightly.
Fluttershy-plush with removable maid-dress, headpiece and socks.
Fabrics: Minky & Cotton.
Size: roughly 9.9" (~25cm) tall and 11.8" (~30cm) long

I hope all of you are doing swell, I know I am.
Some updates! Im still pumping out art- but with College coming up, I may not be able to be as productive. I also want to start doing some more traditional artwork, and possibly something not pony related... GASP!
Im excited for Season 4, I wonder what this new character is going to be. I really want to do something canon for once, but you kno' whatevah'.
My shading style is also progressively changing, and for the better I think. If you all have any tips I would love it!
Would any of you all like to see a tutorial? I don't know ,^.^
I have introduced STICKERS~! To go on your page! I love them so far- and they are available for commission.
I will also be updating my prices, and they will go up soon- however not drastically. Only by about $1 or $2. So yay!

Yay! Thank you guys for all the support- I cant imagine how my progress-
Selling my soul to DisneyI know I asked about which pics you guys would look forward to seeing the most in my last poll, but just a fair warning: I'm going to be doing quite a bit of Disney works mixed in with that. The reason why? I'm trying to land a job as a concept artist with Disney.Selling my soul to Disney9 months ago in Personal More Like This
No, I'm not kidding. I heard from my barber that one of her customer's daughters actually got a job at Disney by sending in several of her drawings, with a full paid scholarship to Florida U. No, this isn't one of those "my friend's friend's friend said" stories. She knows the girl, and she was the one who designed all the characters in Monsters Inc. Yeah.
It's not just going to be fanarts though. The core of the project is going to be a concept I've been thinking of for awhile: an Indian/Hindi version of Princess and the Pea. I've already got a few sketches done, and I hope to get it sent in time to hopefully land a scholarship in 2014. Who knows, maybe I'll upload some of the pics in the future.
Anyway, this is just a la
