If you where wondering why I was innactive for a week's worth of time was because I went away for a holiday at Hamilton Island! ^3^
It was gorgeous there, but I'm soooo tired. I did so much swimming i thought I was going to grow fins!! But now I'm home, and I'm allowed back onto DA. I have some photos that me and my lil sis Hannahrox9 :iconHannahrox9: are going to upload. She got to take her new (yet old model) camera, and I had to leave mine behind TwT. I couldn't take my laptop either, but I managed to sneak onto to DA twice while I was away, thanks to the wifi room and their free to use computers :3. Anyway I had a great time. I will tell you more about it. But I'm really tired. I'm gonna have a nap maybe.
So you guys can look foward to more photography by me, cause I have been up to alot for a week's worth!! ^^

Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Because I'm Sick of Getting Asked...No. I am not married. I was engaged, but called it off a few months ago. It's been a tough last several months, as it wasn't an easy decision to make in my life. Please be respectful and please stop asking me about my personal life. I don't understand why it matters. I'm still a human being with feelings and emotions.Because I'm Sick of Getting Asked... in Personal More Like This

A Note About The Flaming Pony.Hi hi everypony!A Note About The Flaming Pony. in Personal More Like This
So, I get asked a lot of the same questions, as I'm sure you can all imagine, and sometimes I can answer them and sometimes I can't. Lately I've been getting asked about Wild Fire and why she was changed in one of the last episodes, if we'll ever see her again, and how she came to be in the first place.
Her first appearance in the Canterlot Wedding ep, wasn't much of an exciting story (none of this really is). After seeing the cleaned up storyboard (which I believe that section was drawn by fellow board artist Marshall), I noticed that the one pony he drew looked almost like Wild Fire. For shoots and giggles, I went to our art director and simply just asked if we could try and make it WF. And it worked. She was approved as a "board pull" design. It was as simple as that.
While work had begun on season 3, I was approached by my good friend Wootie (and co-director) asking if it was okay to use WF as a Wonderbolt Cadet for the 307 episode. They needed a few more designs,

It's That Time Again.Well.It's That Time Again. in Personal More Like This
It's that time of year again. The end of it. Without going into too much detail, this year has been the biggest year of change for me in I can't even remember how long. One must not forget that no matter how old you are, life is a constant and changing thing. I had more downs than ups the last year, but the ups were evidently strong enough to keep me keeping on. Thankfully.
I want to wish each and every one of you a safe and happy new years eve, as well as best wishes for a bright and positive 2014.
Live and learn.
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. 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.

So we finally welcome back season 3 of MLP! I'm very excited for this season to unfold, and I hope that all of you are avoiding all the spoilers and commercials like you should be!
Next week, my first episode of season 3 airs, "Too Many Pinkie Pies." I had a blast working on this episode with my amazing board partner Dave. I have never gotten to do a full-on Pinkie Pie episode, so this was definitely a fun one for me.
Looking forward to seeing more fan content, I'm always amazed at all the talent out there!
Hope ya'll enjoy!

And it's a little thing called 'Honesty'.
So, here's why I ask for it from everybody; I need to know what others think of my art. I don't want that 'OMG SO CUOOTE' comment, I don't want that 'YOU'RE SO GOOD!' comment... I want it straight up, honest.
So if I have a proportion problem, tell me.
If my colouring sucks, tell me.
If there's too much going on in the picture, tell me.
If I just plain ruined the whole entire thing, tell me.

So yeah, you get the jest of it.
It's just, I feel like there are those people who will say anything just because. But I really need the constrictive criticism to get better! If I don't get it, then I'll be stuck judging my own work, and it's harder to do it alone rather than other points of view taking a look at it themselves.
Plus, I really really feel like my art looks like anime/manga, which I am trying SO hard to get away from. I can't s
