OFFICIAL CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT! - WE HAVE WINNERS![EDIT from Jan 7/8: I realize that Jan 7 is over almost everywhere now, and I am so sorry I didn't get winners announced earlier, but I had some things come up and then making sure my lists were all correct and complete and checking them over twice and then randomizing them so that I could really draw a random name and such just all took waaaaay longer than I thought it would. If I didn't care about making it seriously random then I'd have been done sooner, but I just got all OCD with it and <agfwhfngask!> ...anyway...

Elements of Harmony Book DetailsFolks have been asking for size information on the book boxes, so here's a quick rundown on just how big they are plus some pics with reference items.Elements of Harmony Book Details3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Outter Dimensions- 10.5" x 14" x 3.75"
Inner Dimensions- 9.5" x 13" x 3"
Outter Dimensions- 8.5" x 12" x 3"

Here are some additional pics of the boxes for comparison. I used some regular, brushable-size ponies, a comic book, Blind Bag box and trading cards for scale.
Note that the gold bits aren't quite as shiny in these pics. They're all covered in a protective plastic layer, but underneath they're shiny shiny!

>So, we've all seen your fine work across the ponysculptverse. Who are you, Hoikarnage?
:iconhoikarnage: “I'm just a lazy, self employed & single (and therefore [with] lots of free time for sculpting) guy from Maine.”
>When did you start sculpting ponies?
:iconhoikarnage: “I got into ponies right at the beginning, before any of the fan sites like EQD, so there were not very many people making pony sculptures. Basically I was browsing ebay one day and happened to stumble onto a terrible sculpture that had no business being sold for as high as it was, but yet people were bidding on it (probably because it
Fluttershy And Nightmare Moon Plush Hair Guide1- Choose your fabric. For Fluttershy, I would use a pink satin, or fleece if you don't trust yourself with expensive material. For Nightmare Moon, I would get some of that special occasion satin from Jo Ann or Hancock that has the little sparkles glued to the fabric, or you could look for fleece with a nebula/space pattern on it (you might have to look online.) Something else that would be interesting is using a translucent satin; it'd look cool over the white batting and edged with blue blanket stitches (use a black or very dark navy blue fabric.)Fluttershy And Nightmare Moon Plush Hair Guide2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2- Create a pattern by drawing the hair on a sheet of card stock. For Fluttershy, draw her bangs, long mane, and tail separately; the bangs and long mane will be on opposite sides of her face.
3- Cut out the pattern pieces and trace onto the fabric. For satin, use washable tailor's chalk. For fleece, use washable markers. You may or may not want to use markers with translucent satin; they may harm nice fabric, but chalk is really hard
Pastel Unicorns: Skinny Pretty Non-UnicornsThis is from Heavenly Nostrils which is a really adorable webomic about a rowdy little girl and her kind of prissy, self-centered unicorn friend. It has a strong Calvin & Hobbes vibe to it, which is a high compliment. MLP (well, "pastel unicorns") comes up a couple of times in the strip - the artist is a pony fan!Pastel Unicorns: Skinny Pretty Non-Unicorns2 years ago in Personal More Like This

(Yes, I know I've got a few more now, but it took me a little longer to finish the free pony than I thought it would.)
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

PewDiePie Mousepads. (CLOSED) - Winner will be annHows it going bros!PewDiePie Mousepads. (CLOSED) - Winner will be ann4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically Ive been contacted about distributing some mousepads specially PewDiePie theme designed.
I thought it would be awesome to have some artwork by you bros on this!
I just need a really big file of it. Like huge, (otherwise the print wont look good). So if you have any artwork, fanart (or feel like making one) that you think would look good and still have the .psd file (or whatever original file you saved it as ) for it I would be more than happy to check it out. - Just leave it as a comment down below, I need it before the 2nd of August though.
It might also end up on my t-shirt shop instead if I really like it
I also wanna say that I appreciate every single fanart that I get and it always gives me the biggest grin to browse them through on Deviantart
I just figured if you reach out to me it makes it a lot easier and I will pay if I end up using it of course.
Thanks for all your amazing fanart and please never stop making them

Michael MoronesI visited Michael and his mom this week at his rehab center. Michael still has a long way to go, but he is making little steps each day. His room was decorated everywhere with cards and toys from so many people, and you could tell how much love everyone has sent him. He has lots of MLP toys to brighten up his room, you all have been so kind to him.Michael Morones2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I brought along a Pinkie Pie pillow I made for him, and my boyfriend Zach made paracord bracelets that he made, one for Michael and one for is little brother. We were afraid they would be too big, but it turns out that they fit over an arm brace he is using for therapy
It is overwhelming to see all the drawings and gifts in his room. Tiffany is so happy for all the help that has been shown to her family by this fandom. Now, there is even an auction that Broadway Battles Bullying (hosted by Ian McKellen). I think they are looking for items to auction off. If you have anything to donate, here is the link:

My fabric arrived!!! Also 5 slots, not 2.It figures that as soon as I'd given up hope and whined about it on the internet, my fabric would come. That'll teach me for worrying when my fabric takes more than a month to arrive. SO! I'll be working on the ponies on my current commissions list! For those of you that put in requests on my other journal entry, do not despair!

All About ExoThis journal is all about my OC, Exo, who is partly my ponysona - things that I am - and partly things that I wish to be. Which I suppose is the point of an original character in some ways! First I'll tackle how she looks - the important aspects of her design - and then a bit about her personality.All About Exo3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is how I draw her:
IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF HER DESIGN
Only her right ear is black.
She has a black diamond on her forehead under her horn. This is often covered by her hair.
The number, size and positioning of her spots is important.
Her freckles are important! She may have more or less, but they are always there.
Size of a normal mare, sturdily built
Mane usually worn in a ponytail, but other hairstyles are possible. Sometimes loops the long parts of her bangs into her ponytail to get them out of the way, as

Regarding Group Security and 'Hackers'Hello Everypony,Regarding Group Security and 'Hackers'3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This post is largely directed towards anyone who moderates or runs a MLP-related group on DeviantArt, but the information contained can be relevant to everyone.
Over the past few hours, there's been a note circulating around to various MLP groups, claiming that there is a small group of "hackers" (which is not the correct word) attacking MLP groups, taking them over, and vandalizing them. To counter this, the note is suggesting that groups should block all join requests, disable auto-accept, and then forward the note to every other group you know of.
Really, that's horrible advice, don't do that.
It is true that during the past few days, a couple of pony groups have been attacked by malicious users. However, there is no elaborate hack or security flaw that's allowing this to happen. Instead, the groups that were attacked simply had an incorrectly configured, yet easily fixable, setting in their group's permissions which allowed such attacks.
Most groups already are not
