Floored.So I was just going thru a folder on my desktop that contains pretty much every single piece of fan art I've gotten since this whole pony craze began. And I sat back and stopped and realized - holy hell, this is just...amazing. I mean, every time I get something new, I am so flattered at the fact that somebody would want to take their time out to draw something for *me*. It boggles my mind, but I love each and every one of them...regardless of skill level.Floored.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just had a moment where I just felt completely moved with happiness at the thoughtfulness and generosity...and I just wanted to say thank you AGAIN to everyone and anyone who has taken time out of their daily lives to be creative and share that with me. It means the world.

How to Become a Memorable & Valuable DA MemberThis is a compilation of relatively easy steps to not only become "popular" but more importantly, become a sort of "asset" to DA. Inspire and encourage your fellow artists; SPREAD THE LOVE!How to Become a Memorable & Valuable DA Member4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Many artists start their Devious Journey with the mindset that they will acquire Internet Fame.
Usually in the form of:
1. Thousands of adoring fans
2. Turning a profit from your hobby
My (let's call it) "Tutorial" will not show you how to con or manipulate people. I will simply show you how, with perseverance and kindness, you can attain valuable friends, an understanding of yourself(and your art), and irreplaceable golden memories!
Seem too good to be TRUE? Nonsense! All this is within each of our grasps.
It may take longer for some than others, but one can not achieve success without a little elbow grease.

Critiquing Critiquing StoryStory: Turns out you're doing it wrong.Critiquing Critiquing Story6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone is- and what's more, anyone who tries to make a foray into storytelling without having mastery over their efforts merits endless scorn.
I've had the privilege of sharing advice with some other creators of late, and seen some of the (usually anonymous) criticism being leveled at their work. It's noteworthy for being intense, superficially sophisticated, and misguided.
Now, there are two kinds of creators out there. Those who don't give a fig for what other people think, and dismiss all criticism out of hand.
...Those creators tend not to improve.
Then there are those who care about the quality of their work, take pains to make it enjoyable for others, and are receptive to feedback.
These individuals have the most potential as writers, and are also most vulnerable to their efforts being permanently deformed by vindictive critique.
They'll be assured their characters are flat cutout
CLOSED: 2,000 POINT CONTEST!!!!!!!!Update: I apologize if there was any confusion, but I feel the need to clarify this now-I will not be accepting fan arts for this contest D:CLOSED: 2,000 POINT CONTEST!!!!!!!!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I understand the confusion considering that I have multiple songs on my playlist that are remixes from video games and shows. However, I cannot accept them because one of my major criteria is that your piece be original. I also left a small note stating that several songs will contain images/music videos and that I would appreciate it if you guys did not use these for influence, but simply used the music itself for inspiration.
The main reason behind this all is to simply make it equally challenging for everyone.
I'm sorry if this causes any of you frustration or if it possibly deters you from entering. However, I encourage you all to still try to create a piece that you would like to submit.
If you're not having fun or can't find any inspiration for this contest, don't sweat it. There will be many more contests and I do plan on

* It won't affect the real show
* Let's not prejudge. That's what brony haters do isn't it?
* If you decide not to watch it, fine; but in avoiding it you remove any right you had to discuss it ever.
* If you watch it and hate it, great. So what? The simple solution is to not watch any more because... once again... it's existence doesn't mean anything for the real show.
I think of it as an animated fanfiction... Like friendship is witchcraft. Maybe it will be good. Who knows? But it's certainly nothing to get up in arms about. Save your pitchforks for Season 4 if Derpy is missing.
Why You (Still) Shouldn't Use Celestia MediumSince I wrote my last journal about Celestia Medium, the situation on that front has changed a little bit, and I feel it's fair to have another look at where things stand today.Why You (Still) Shouldn't Use Celestia Medium4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The initial reaction on the part of :iconpurpletinker: was surprising to me - most people don't take to being called out very well. By withdrawing her original font, she understood what was going on and admitted a mistake. It takes good character to do the right thing, and she did so with grace. Since then, a different user, :iconmattyhex: has released Celestia Medium Redux, which is a slightly different take on Celestia Medium. There's quite a few differences between the Redux version and the original release, not regarding the differences between the true font, Generation B. You can find Generation B at Harold's Fonts and purchase it online from Font Bros.

Cleaning and Caring for Your JewelryHere are some cleaning instructions for any of my hand crafted goods made from sterling silver, gold, copper, or brass.Cleaning and Caring for Your Jewelry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The best way to clean fingerprints, smudges, and other minor surface grime off your jewelry and gemstones is with a soft, lint-free cloth like someone would use to clean their glasses. This is the safest, easiest way to clean your jewelry.
If you've got a quite a bit of dirt or grime on your jewelry, the best way to clean it yourself is with a soft toothbrush and dawn dish soap under running water. Be sure to plug your sink!!! Do not use toothpaste as a cleaning agent! Toothpaste is a mild abrasive and will put scratches on any metal surfaces! When you're done, damp it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Over time, when wearing your jewelry, the finish will get scratched up a bit. It can't be helped. The best way to get rid of minor scratches is with a polish cloth. Polish cloths can usually be purchased at a local jewelry store, or some department stores, and a
The Molestia Thing and Tumblr JusticeThe Molestia Thing and Tumblr Justice2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sexual exploitation is no joke, we all understand that. Having volunteered at a rape crisis center, I’ve heard heartbreaking stories and seen lives devastated by rape and sexual assault.
I applaud ANYONE concerned about these issues and willing to help with time and money. BUT trying to take down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies doesn’t amount to fuck-all. And sending someone money for a tee-shirt “supporting” taking down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies means even less than fuck-all.
If you want to lend assistance to something that matters, visit the websites of these 4-star rated charity organizations dealing with matters of rape, sexual exploitation, and women’s justice. Make a donation, volunteer your time, do something that MATTERS. Don’t be a tumblr warrior, be an actual hero and make a big damn difference.

Rant on FNAF FangirlsI'm pretty sure almost everyone on the internet has heard of the horror game Five Nights at Freddy's. Personally, I've never played it, but I've seen two let's plays (both done by Team Four Star, the creators of Dragon Ball Z Abridged) and it sounds pretty original for a horror game as well as the lore behind the game. I kinda like the designs of the robots as well. It's also legit scary because of the paranoia of these animatronics coming alive and out to kill you while the only things you can do are look at the cameras, turn on and off the lights, and open and close the doors. The jumpscare is also pretty surprising even though it lasts for only one second, I literally jumped when it happened (remember, never played it). But with every interesting or cool thing that's popular, there's always the rabid fanbase. I've never encountered a FNAF fangirl, but I've heard stories about how they're in love with Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy (and Golden Freddy). :staRant on FNAF Fangirls5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The Fandom is Dying?It is? Really? REALLY? I didn't notice...The Fandom is Dying?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, I can't seem to understand where all this "the fandom is dying" stuff is coming from.
We have more charity events than ever before.
We have more conventions than ever before.
More brony parties than ever before.
Blogs and news sites.
The list goes on.
Seriously, guys? We're BOOMING.
When you tell me "the fandom is dying," I have no idea what the (BUY SOME APPLES) you're talking about!
Spread the word, bronies... I mean it. Spread the word, 'cause our fandom is doing the OPPOSITE of dying.
