Dig what you want, little man.Made a pilgrimage to my local walmart today to scope out the new pony section they have up. Snagged some napkins and drinking cups, then headed to the pony aisle. I kinda waited back, because there was a family checking out the pony toys as well. There was a mother, a son, and a daughter. The daughter looked around 12-13, the son looked about 7-8. She was holding on to a Rarity plushie while her little brother asked her to grab a Fluttershy for him on the shelf. The daughter basically said "You can't have her, it's a show for girls! You're not a little girl!" The mother basically flashed a glance at her and said "Now come on ____".

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday

Biggest Jack Frost Moment in History.So, I decided to go see that "Rise of The Guardians" movie thinking it might be pretty good. I went to see the movie by myself, so when I walked into the theater there is nothing but little kids and their parents as far as the eye can see. I suddenly felt kind of silly for wanting to come see the movie now. As I was walking up the stairs to the top to get a seat I noticed most of the little kids started to stare at me. Ignoring the weird looks of these strange children, I found a empty seat next to an old couple that had brought their granddaughter to see the movie. Looking out over the theater again to see if there was another empty spot, I failed at finding one. I settled in the seat next to the little girl and I had a sick feeling she was going to be one of those kids that talks through the whole movie. I looked down at my pocket and pulled out my pocket watch (yeah, I know I'm a little too old fashion sometimes, call me crazy) and realized I had a good 10 minutes before the movie sBiggest Jack Frost Moment in History.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Winter Alliance Contest! Greetings, fair Allies! It is my pleasure to announce the Winter Alliance Contest!Winter Alliance Contest!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!
Because I, your founder, have a deep and abiding love for the seasons, this group will now host seasonal contests, and as the Autumn Contest is now over, it is time for Winter to reig

Bolin Cosplay Tutorial----UPDATE----Bolin Cosplay Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have uploaded the pictures of the main pattern pieces for the jacket to my scrapbook. Take a look if you are having troubles modifying your own pattern! (I couldn't find the pattern for the collar, I drew it on a piece of paper somewhere and I think it is gone now... sorry!)
I have had a lot of requests asking how I made the jacket for my cosplay, so I decided I would write a quick overview of what went into making it. I will not go into excruciating detail, but if you would like more help on any particular section, please leave a comment and I would be happy to elaborate!

More ways to promote your work on dA......that you might not have thought of!More ways to promote your work on dA...4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Part of the fun of creating art is sharing it with other artists and art appreciators. Whether you're seeking feedback, promoting your creations for sale (as dA prints or maybe directing people to cool stuff in your etsy shop), offering stock and resources for others to use or simply aiming to get your work 'out there' for the deviant world to enjoy, there are lots of ways to do that through deviantART.
Everyone knows about the Thumbshare Forum, Groups and Featured Deviation modules on your profile page, but there are other ways to promote your art that you may not have considered before. Here are just a few suggestions...
Thumbs in Artist's Comments
You can put thumbnails in the Artist's Comments on your deviations. This is a great way to show off connected images (like if you submit a bunch of photos from the same shoot to dA) or a collection of deviations on a theme. You might want to include mor
Nyiana's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Hey everyone!Nyiana's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
With Christmas coming up pretty fast, I decided to do a giveaway for Christmas, actually 12 days worth. Pretty sweet right? The twelve days leading up to and on Christmas itself, I will be giving away different gifts to people who enter, from premium memberships, to shirts, to collectibles.
Now, this project doesn't start until December 14th, but there's a reason why I'm announcing it now. I added up the cost of the prizes, and its not exactly cheap, over 14,000 points. So, I'm making this journal today to see if anyone would be willing to help donate towards this cause. Of course, I should have done all of this earlier, but the idea didn't strike me until yesterday.
On the front of my page, I have a donation pool set up with the amount of points that I need to reach my goal. If I don't make the goal before then, that's fine. I'll cough up my own money, but its open to anyone who wants to donate and take part.

Legend of Korra: Costume Design!One of the neat things about being the lead designer of a show like Young Justice is getting to interact with the fans through sites like this one, seeing the awesome fan art you guys do is a big inspiration for myself and a lot of the other artists and writers on the show. It really keeps us motivated knowing that you guys and girls appreciate the characters and stories we are creating. Along with great art my other favorite aspect of fandom, and easily the most hardcore representation of it, is the cosplayers and their dedication to show accurate costumes. So with SDCC right around the corner I thought I would share a little something interesting with all you Legend of Korra fans out there, as well as cosplayers in general. Last year at around this time my good buddy, Joaquim http://2-cents.deviantart.com/, who is a co-executive producer on Korra, asked my wife, she is a clothing designer by trade, to create a show accurate Korra outfit to be worn by the official model representing tLegend of Korra: Costume Design!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

MLP:FiM OC Fiction - Decibel's PastMLP:FiM OC Fiction - Decibel's Past2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi, my name is Decibel. I am a unic- well, an earth pony living in a town called Ponyville.
Why did I hesitate while saying unicorn and change it to earth pony, you ask? Well... It's a long story.
But if you're willing to listen, this is my story...
It all started on a warm, cloudy day; in a little town called, "Galloping Falls."
I was asleep, I usually woke up around six in the morning, but this particular morning I slept in until around eight.
I was awoken by my little brother, Opus.
"Deci! Deci, wake up!" Opus laughed, as he jumped up and down on my bedding.
Opening my eyes groggily, I looked at my light blue brother.
"What is it Opus?" I really am not a morning pony, so I was not pleased.
"You need to come see this!" he said, his yellow eyes wide.
"See what?" I asked with a yawn.
"All the pegasi flying around!"
Pegasus was a species that did not live in Galloping Falls, so to have them here was always a bad sign.
"What are they doing here?"
