That's not the point of this journal though.
I'm actually starting to get really annoyed at something.
A few people have given me proper critiques on my art, which I thank you dearly for. You have pointed out the good and bad in my art, which is all I ask for.
As for some other people..
Some people say "oh, that's great." Which is also nice of you, but not when I ask if it needs improvement or not.
Most of the time... In fact, all the time when I ask if something can be fixed with a picture of mine, people say no at first. Then once it's published and unfixable, someone who has seen the picture for the first time will comment and say "that is in the wrong place" or "make that thinner" which is perfectly fine, although it GREATLY bothers me when someone who has seen the unfinished versions of the same picture then say "Oh I agree. That could have been fixed."
Well why didn't you bloody tell me when I asked what cou

The absolute best thing you can do to get into animation as a career is to go to art school. Not only will you learn how to draw and how to SEE, you will meet people, students and teachers alike, who will give you new perspectives and will likely be the sources of your future jobs.

It's lizard season. They come out every year in the same places; a flower pot on the side of the house, and a column that holds up our patio.
My dog is fascinated by the lizards. She will sit like a statue just staring for hours. It's like "Waiting For Godot" or something. And in a few months there will be little baby lizards scampering around the sidewalk on one of the streets I walk on.
Where do they go from November to May? Are they just sleeping?
It's spider season too. The big old garden spiders. I have seen webs literally spun all the way across a street. Last year there was one from a Eucalyptus tree to our balcony - spanning 30 feet. These guys can get big, like half dollar sized. I find them fascinating. So graceful, and the webs are so symmetrical. And sticky and invisible. So the spider can get the fly and poison it and keep it alive and then suck all its gut

anger and entitlementi was driving down benedict canyon for a doctor's appointment and just before sunset traffic came to a standstill and I was stuck at bedford. i hear this yelling. some dude in a porsche behind me is just going off on me to pull the ___ up and get out of the way. Really, i was just sitting there omming away waiting for the traffic to clear, maybe about a foot behind a massive truck in front of me.anger and entitlement in Personal More Like This
but no biggie, i pulled up the extra few inches and the guy just tore down bedford screaming at me the whole time. enraged.
rich people break more laws, have an over inflated sense of entitlement, and the worse ethics of all of humanity.
did you know that? i mean, we all know it, but did you know there have been studies showing that it is statistically true?
and the richer the person the worse it is. also part of the study.
everyone is running around driven by fear and greed and anger and resentment and trying to get everything that can for themselves at the expense of anyone in their way.

We, the members of PONIES: The Anthology II, have an important announcement to make! First, we would like to thank everyone that watched and enjoyed our contribution to this fandom. We are still reeling from the overwhelming amount of positive feedback PONIES has gotten since we released it back in July.
Secondly, and more importantly, we are extremely excited to announce that our charity website is up and running. It took a few extra weeks but we think it was worth it. We have some great posters and t-shirts featuring some of the art that was seen in PONIES: The Anthology II. Do you want to know the best part? All profits from every sale go to charity!

My Little Pony
Geeze. Who of thought. A year ago I would have called myself crazy and now here we are. There have been ups and downs. Lots of artwork was made.
Let's give kudos to some people.
First and foremost, I like to thank my little sis who's been so supportive of me and she's a supporter of AppleDash and Twilestia. Haha! Also to all my real life friends who support me. Big shoutout to Jay and Shiney!
Second I must thank Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye: and Studio B. Without her and the team at Studio B, none of this would've happen. She did something not many could do: Revitalized a franchise that is more than a 30 minute commercial to sell toys. She made something so awesome that everyone can enjoy it. So thank you for everything Lauren and Studio B many times over.
Shout out to Vixy who introduced me to Sonic Rainboom. You ruined my life with MLP!

Rowland Is Back!For all my watchers who are railfans, here's some exciting news from the chairman of Iron Horse Enterprises, Ross E. Rowland Jr.!Rowland Is Back! in Personal More Like This
He has recently announced this project: The Yellow Ribbon Express -> http://www.yellowribbonexpress.com/index.html
After the Greenbrier Presidential Express fail, this is Ross's newest project. Of course, it involves the 614. This is basically the American Freedom Train, except powered by the C&O 614. This train will honor America's veterans, and will tour over a three year period. There's not much info about it right now, but I'm ecstatic to find out that Ross Rowland is making a comeback after a 17 year absence from his last excursion.
Occasionally, he does work as an engineer on the New Hope & Ivyland, but this will be the first time he's ever been on the mainline since 1998.
Ross Rowland is my idol, and I will work hard to be just like he has, touring the country with those iron horses that we remember so well from stories, videos, and of

1. NKP 587
This little beauty was used by the Southern Railway, then repainted to match the 611, before finally being bought for the 587 in 1989.
2. C&O 614 This one was used by the C&O 614 in 1985 for the ACE 3000 test trains. Then, it was on loan to NS from 1989 to 1994 for use by N&W 611. It had been painted Tuscan Red for the last half of the 1994 season, and was bought once again by Iron Horse Enterprises for use from 1996-1998.
3. NKP 765
This one was built in 1987 for use behind the N&W 1218. After being taken out of service, it went along with the 1218 to the Virginia Museum of Transportation. Then, in 2012, it was brought out for use behind NKP 765.

Current UpsessionLately, I've been obsessed with Galaxy Express 999. It's so awesome!Current Upsession in Personal More Like This
If you don't know the story, it stars a little boy who's dream is to get a mechanical body, which he thinks will improve his life. The only way to get one is to go to another planet. And the only way to get there is on, of course, the Galaxy Express. The locomotive in charge of the train is a Japanese C-62 4-6-4. The little boy is accompanied by a girl who offers him the chance to ride that special train.
As part of the series, it had a movie, and a second series. The second series is titled "Galaxy Railways". The locomotive starring this series is, believe it or not, a UP 4-8-8-4 Big Boy.
If y'all have ever heard of or seen this series, please feel free to give me some extra details. Because I just recently got interested in the series.
