When you're rife with devastation
There's a simple explanation:
You're a toymaker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball
And whichever way he tilts it
Know that we must be resilient
We won't let them break our spirits
As we sing our silly song
Isn't it great to be different?
Isn't it wonderful to be exactly who you are?
Once you learn to start accepting yourself
You'll become a shining star
Carrot Top, go beyond us
You're a late star, time to fool us
Keep your friends close, they're will drive you
To the cosmos that describes you
Carrot Top, go beyond us
You're a late star, time to fool us
Keep your friends close, they're will drive you
To the cosmos that describes you…
Legend of Korra.Nerdy philosophical ponderings about cartoons ahead.Legend of Korra.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I could go on and on about all the things I love about Legend of Korra... From the characters (Tenzin is my favorite!), to the art, the animation, the themes, and the writing. All just completely amazing. Especially Amon.
Amon is a great villain...
But who is he? And what is he?
I have a theory...
Amon is Aang.
I know what you're thinking: "How could Amon be Aang? The Avatar reincarnates, which means if Korra is alive, how could Aang be alive too?"
Here's my logic...
In the first series, the Lion Turtle told Aang: "In the era before the Avatar, we bent not the elements, but the energy within ourselves."
First of all, how many people have conversations with Lion Turtles about energy bending? Probably not very many. DiMartino and Konietzko said that the Lion Turtle was supposed to be an extremely old creature (not a spirit), perhaps the oldest living thing on the planet. And "the era befor

The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon"I have a question about the extreme price."The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon5 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a message I recently got regarding a listing of my latest Baby Jackalope art doll on Etsy.
That was the extent of the message. No please or thank you, no actual question stated besides the inferred comment that the price of my artwork is a gouge.
I realized that although the tone of the message was rather rude, it's a question artists get asked all the time and an opportunity for me to stand up for artists without sending an equally rude reply to the likes of "If you do not like the pricing of my original art, you can go to Hallmark and buy a cheap stuffed bear made by the thousands using near slave-labour in China". I do not feel that anyone should be obligated to justify why and how the pricing of their craft translates into how much grocery money they end up with at the end of the week, but this might be helpful or at least reassuring for those of us who
PoniCon - Welcome to Argentina!A couple days ago I was fortunate enough to attend PoniCon, Argentina's (and I've been told South America's) first My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic convention. I have to say, when I arrived in Argentina for my semester of studying and working on my Ph.D. thesis, I had no idea that MLP:FiM was a recognizable pop-culture brand, much less that there would be so many bronies here as to warrant an entire convention dedicated to the celebration of pony.

A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!A small talk about pricing your art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
Let's be honest - if you're reading this then you probably want
Groups: How to Set Your Membership/Join RequestsThe new Groups system is great, isnt it? Once you get a handle on all of the extra settings, the system makes it easier than ever to run your own communities and clubs. But getting the hang of all those settings does take a while. The main issue that Ive seen is in regards to the join requests.Groups: How to Set Your Membership/Join Requests5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When you first start a group, or convert your club, the request to join option comes with the default setting of being disabled, or closed (presumably to give the founder time to set everything up before accepting members). But when you look at your groups main page, the join our group button is right there, as if requests are open (dA should consider changing this at some point).
Now, a groups founder isnt going to request to join their own group; theyll just see the join button on the main page, and assume that anyone can click on it and request to join. It wont be until some
Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)Art is a process.Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply practice or avoid distractions. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art
War Were DeclaredMares and Gentlecolts... and that strange fellow who keeps eating the drapes.War Were Declared2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tension has, like our great moon, brought in the tides of aggression upon the beaches of Equestria. While we have focused on the machinations of war with the Solar Imperialists, we have both turned a blind eye to a far greater threat. A threat to the throne and crown of Equestria.
Growing separatists, originally neutral, have begun to arm themselves against us. They scream cries of "Unity" and "Freedom", demanding the unification of the throne. Night and Day yielding their exchange of guardianship. They do not understand our plight, nor do they care. These... traitors, have no legitimacy for the crown, yet stand against both our Princesses.
Our war has raged for many a year, so long that many have forgotten how it has started. We fight and die for our Lady of the Night. It is our hopes and prayers that we will endeavor, and overthrown the Celestian regime. However, while we desire to take the political

MY TIP OF THE DAY:
Pins, pins and more pins
They are my friend when sewing. I have made more mistakes due to haste ,of not wanting to take that extra few minutes and pin the heck out of my pattern. Minky Fabric slips ALOT, plus it stretches. If I showed you ponies that have been sewn up and thrown away due to not using pins or even enough pins, You would Cringe.
So NOW, I use ALOT of pins.
