I'm actually in a fairly good mood today, I'm just really bored.
Anthros scare the heck out of me. Unless, of course, they're made well. Like the ones on kid shows, they're fine. But if it just looks like they stuck a dog/pony/etc head on a human body? :iconhellnoplz: :iconscaredplz:
No matter how good I get, I'll always think of my work as not good enough. I think that a good lined art piece, with no shading or anything, is much better than anything I've ever done.
I never really use anything besides the default brush, burn, dodge, smudge and blur tool. I can't find anything else that would work in PSE.
I HATE doing commissions/requests/etc. I'm used to drawing what I want. Anything else is work.
It's really hard for me to say no to someone when they ask for a Commission/Request/etc/. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

I probably have $20 from Gramma, that what she's given me every year for as long as I remember, so I only need ten more dollars. If I could get a few small commissions, say, 3-5 dollars each, I can hit my goal before Christmas, which is when I want to take it in. I'll be taking it to a non profit animal shelter. So pleaseeeeeee commission me?
I'm gonna have to figure out my mom's paypal so I can start doing it. (Don't worry, I have permission!)
EDIT: Oh, I forgot! Okay, so, $50 of what I'm donating came from my 12th birthday party. But, I ALSO got a bag of dog food with it, which costs about $7. (I wrote on the invites that I was donating to an animal shelter) So, when I get the money for this commission, I'll have my $100 dollars! Yay!

And you're not trans, unless you experience gender dysphoria (like I do, I don't identify myself as male nor female therefore I'm agender and I don't care about pronoun use because gender roles are shit imo, but if someone calls me a girl or with the pronoun "it" I'll probably crack their skull open). We're not going to talk about species dysphoria, because that's a case in a million and it usually comes with a mental condition called schizophrenia.
Therefore, if you don't experience dysphoria, you're not trans. You're cis.

ever since i my family got kicked out of our house, weve been staying at our dads place. normally hes kind of irritable, but today he brought 18 bottles of wine home (apparently that what you do for Halloween when youve lived alone for 10 years in a neighborhood with no kids). the mood at dinner was pretty good until he went all "of course i can talk shit about people, im a vp!" and "democrats are all whiners!" and "im gonna spend my birthday in Paris!". he then started drunkenly listed the placed he would take his buddies/clients. after about ten halfassed bullet points i jokingly said "dont forget the high class whore district" and he answered without missing a beat "no no, monday is a terrible time for that" and listed a few more places (Moulin Rouge was among them).
that explains why he ditched his birthday dinner last year to go on a flight to Paris/Nuremberg/the Czech Republic.

I used upholstery foam(or foam cushioning as some might know it) because it's thick, regains its shape even if it's crushed, and it's available at Wal Mart in large quantities ahah.
First off it was more expensive than I expected, but still not horrendously expensive. I bought a 48"x72" piece for $65. This is enough for one and a half ponie. Second, I really underestimated its weight. This stuff is HEAVY. I was hoping to reduce Pinkie's weight by using this foam, but that didn't happen.
Fitting it in the plush:
I measured and cut large strips of the foam and rolled them up so they would fit through the body. I didn't roll them supe

You want to make plushies? Tips and resources listEdit: added a part about fabric selection before 'where do I start'!You want to make plushies? Tips and resources list in Personal More Like This
Ever since I posted Wolf Link and Midna I've been getting an influx of messages asking me to teach, reveal my secrets, take people under my wing, and so on. The sad thing is I can't spend all that much time one on one with everybody asking me to teach them. So I've decided to put together this massive block of text, relating some of my personal experience in plush making and listing off all my resources at the bottom. This will cover the very basics of plush and pattern making so if you are completely new to plush making this is for you, if you're not and you're just looking for resources skip to the bottom. I hope this will be helpful to someone!
First off, the reality. The big secret. The key to becoming a good plush artist is...
I can already feel the glares and exasperation but hear me out first.
One thing I've noticed with a lot of the messages I got were that a lot of people were scared of screwing up.
Possible commissions re-opening soon heads up?Edit: Just a friendly reminder that yes people on the waiting list DO have up to 2 weeks to respond, I understand that people don't always have internet access 24/7 and go away on vacations and stuff, I'm just in a pretty uncomfortable situation right now where I need work before the 2 weeks are up. Just wanted to clear that up!Possible commissions re-opening soon heads up? in Personal More Like This
So I'm not hearing back from a lot of people on my waiting list which might push me to re-opening my commissions pretty abruptly. As it stands right now I'm going to run out of work by Wednesday next week, so if I don't hear back from the people on the list by Sunday I'll make an announcement that night with all the specifics for commissions. I would be taking them on Monday evening.
This also leads me to another point: I've had to cancel 4 commissions this past round due to no response. It's okay if something comes up and you can't go through with the commission but please let me know instead of letting me hang there for 2 weeks.
Upcoming changesSo there's a couple things that are gonna change next time I take commissions. First off, something that's only really been happening recently;Upcoming changes in Personal More Like This
It's okay to get a quote for a plush for future reference, but quotes won't stay valid forever. I thought I had this in my commission info already but looks like I was wrong, but as of now quotes are only valid for 3 months. Since I've posted Pinkie I've had some people ask for quotes then tell me they're gonna commission me in 3 years. A lot of things can change during that time, and while I would like to respect the quotes I give out for so long it just can't be done, sorry.
What brought me to the previous statement is that unfortunately I will have to raise my prices by the time my commissions re-open again. BUT! The 3 months rule will apply, so if I quoted you within 3 months before my commissions re-opened, your quote stays the same. One the reason for the price bump is that as a business now (yay!), I have to pay taxes. xP Shipping and

I don't expect to see Unicon again, and I very truly hope this does not negatively affect future Brony conventions.
For those unaware, Unicon, as a new convention, overestimated attendance, overextended funds, and thus, hotel rooms for writers and VA guests were not comped, and the con was shut down early today.
Then, they started asking for donations from the community to cover costs, without even telling us how much was needed to cover costs.
Way to fuck something up pretty royally.

Truck was involved in a rollover this evening. I was driving. I'm still trying to recall what happened, it was so fast.
Can't give too many details right now. Injuries are minor, and I have my laptop at the hotel we're staying at in Arizona for the night.
If you pray, thank you for your prayers. I'm kind of on an adrenaline high right now, and it's still sinking in that I could've been killed tonight.
Maybe to get my mind off of this, I may work on the Epilogue. No promises. I know that's not a priority now, but if it helps me keep it together, then I will.
We're taking this one step at a time. Right now, I'm thanking God we're all alive.

about PasswordDo you understand why he/she wants to distribute for people who understand Japanese language use his/her model?about Password in Personal More Like This
It is same as drive a car.
A man who don't understand road signs must not drive a car in public road.
It is a same.
A man who doesn't understand the rule has no rights to do.
Don't tell me you think that police forgive you by the poor excuse "I don't understand road signs!" ??
In this car's example, Japanese language password is a driver's license test.
"You have enough knowledge to drive a car or not." = "You understand Japanese language or not."
It is a test.
Cheating on the examination is equal that you tell the answer of password to someone.
Does your school permit to cheat or help to cheat on the examination???
There is a lot of people who use "I can't read Japanese." for excuse.
It is not an indulgence.
It is not a magical sentence that someone permit telling you a password or hint.
Are not you guilty if you kill a man and you say "I can't read this country's language!"
My distributed modelsSome people sent me Note recently.My distributed models in Personal More Like This
"Where can I download your model?"
I won't send it individually. It's such a bother.
I already wrote my distributed models in my blog.
This blog is written in Japanese.
But only this page is written in Japanese and English.
If the text has unexpectedly changed, you should change your web browser's character encoding.
(Let's google how to do!)
I'll add to this page whenever I'll upload models(new model and update model).
If there is not the model in this page, the model is not distributed to general users.
I forbid reprint my readme.
I may change model rule in depend on situation.
It will be in trouble because people still believe reprint of rule that is written before changed.
I make motions now.
And I want to make America type nonono uniform version.....perhaps....I'll make....perhaps...

somethingI want you to know.something in Personal More Like This
These are my advice.
You get a model that "You can redistribute edited model."
It is NOT means "You can redistribute a material of parts".
"edit" that Japanese maker usually think is to edit from Normal Miku to Wedding dress Miku.
It is not means that you edit to delete the hair and the clothes and redistribute only the body.
Is it illegal or not?
It is depended on modeler.
A lot of modeler forbid to redistribute the original model (not edited).
Is only deleted parts model really "edited model"?
You say it is edited model: hair part, eyes part, body part, clothes part!
Do you think that modeler is glad?
It is depended on modeler.
It is not problem If you make a part and distribute it.
So, Others use it and the model that maker permit editing and redistribution, It is no problem.
It is not "edit" that you separate parts, I think.
I think "Edit" is that you remodeling another character or dress another clothes . (of course in legal)
Muzukashii-neI am not Japanese modelers representation.Muzukashii-ne in Personal More Like This
What Japanese modelers think are different one by one.
My journals are only my opinions.
Why do Japanese modelers want to distribute to people who understand Japanese.
They are NOT racist.
They are NOT doctrine of Japanese supremacy.
But a lot of Japanese can't use English.
In Japanese life, We need English a little.
It is A LITTLE.
A lot of modeler make a model in their hobby, not business.
translation is a troublesome chore.
If it is a business, it is a easy, They employ a translator.
I think that modelers enjoy only modeling, they don't enjoy troublesome chore.
me too. lol
Why they write readme.txt in English that is different from in Japanese.
THERE ARE LANGUAGE BARRIERS.
THERE ARE CULTURE BARRIERS.
SOME modelers write the lowest rules that as possible as they can write in English.
(like a "NO re-distribute", "No R18" or "NO edit")
They can't write all of their rules in English.
SOME modelers write rules in English but the rules is differe
Japanese otaku slang triviaI read this http://mikumikutalia.deviantart.com/journal/About-the-quot-No-Yaoi-quot-rule-312475680 .Japanese otaku slang trivia in Personal More Like This
I write about "紳士向け" and "百合" for non-Japanese.
translate a passage word for word,
"紳士向け" [shinshi muke] = for jentle
"百合" [Yuri] = lily
But They are Japanese otaku slang.
In Japanese otaku slang, "紳士向け" = racy, sexy or salacious content.
You think Why "for jentle" means racy, sexy or salacious content.
The word is from that Kumakichi-kun in "Gag Manga Biyori" says
"No! I am not! I am not a Hentai! If I am a Hentai, I am Gentle by the name of Hentai!!"
Racy, sexy or salacious content is called "for Jentle" in irony.
In Japanese otaku slang, "百合" = same-sex(female) couple love content
Yaoi is romance about male with male.
Yuri is romance about female with female.
The word is from a homosexual magazine.
about Prints MMDWe know that you sell using our MMD model images in dA.about Prints MMD in Personal More Like This
We are ANGRY and VERY SAD.
It is a Commercial Use.
A lot of MMD models (hetalia or not) are forbidden to Commercial use.
This is illegal our model's rules.
and This is illegal dA's rules, isn't it?
Don't you people keep rules written in English?
How we trust you people?
I know that not all of dA member do that.
But We have to block oversea users to SAVE our models.
We love our models like son and daughter.
We don't have inexhaustible free time.
We can't check all of the world.
But we want to save our models.
I help you people to know model's rules in dA recently.
Because I hope you to understand and keep our rules.
Thank you who understand, keep and act to protect models' rules.
A Commercial Use is NOT ONLY MMD's problem.
Fun Arts MUST NOT trouble the original author.
