It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Ponyscape v0.2! This is the continuation of my work on tweaking Inkscape to add new features and make it more user friendly! This new version adds a few very useful features, and updates the base to the latest revision of Inkscape. I also was able to fix a few bugs and submitted a patch to upstream Inkscape (which got accepted!). I've been working on this version, and have been concurrently working on a couple of vectors which I will hopefully get around to uploading soon.
I have compiled binary packages for both Windows and Linux Mint 14 (should also work on Ubuntu 12.10). To use, download the zip file and extract it wit

I will keep this journal and the files up for anyone who wants to use the previous version.
It is with great joy that I present you with my custom version of Inkscape that I have so lovingly dubbed "Ponyscape". For the past month or two, I've been working on improving Inkscape whenever I could find some free time (which wasn't easy ). I've been using my custom Inkscape version in my most recent vectors, and am proud to announce that I feel it is ready to be released to the masses! For anyone running Windows, you can download the entire package, unzip it using 7zip or winrar, and run inkscape.exe. If you want to compile from source or are not on Windows, download the Inkscape source from their website (http://www.inkscape.org) and apply the source patch (if you need help with this, feel free to send me a note).
Twilight Sparkle is now a Alicorn Princess?I just saw the Season 3 finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And I have to say that I didn't like it, at best.One, I just wished that Twilight was turned into a Princess at the series finale( Not now, there's going to be a Season 4 and rumors of a season 5), it would have been more suitable. Two, now that Twilight is a Princess, what does everyone think things would turn out if she stays in Ponyville; especially now that she will have to perform royal duties much more often? Three, there's one less unicorn in the Mane Six, there's an unbalance amongst the pony races with Rarity as the only unicorn now. Four, even Lauren Faust disagreed with Twilight Sparkle becoming a Princess Alicorn like having Cadence into one instead of a regular unicorn on Tumblr/Twitter. So don't give me any crap of how it was destined to be of Twilight being in-between of Celestia and Luna as day and night and her Element of Harmony being a crown instead of the standard necklace. Five, you expect me toTwilight Sparkle is now a Alicorn Princess? in Personal More Like This
Magical Mystery FAIL.I just watched the newest MLP episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q51chODc-40Magical Mystery FAIL. in Personal More Like This
And here's my review of it, in one sentence:
A huge mistake on the writers' part, with WAY too many songs, and the beginning of MLP's devolution to G1.
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS, WRITERS? DON'T YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR FANS?
...okay. Must stay calm. Don't want this review to turn into a huge cycle of yelling.
I watched the episode, and at first I kind of liked it. Opening up an episode with a song seems kind of cool. But then, another song happened... and another... and another... Basically, I had to sit through seven unneccesary songs, all crammed into 22 minutes.
I could understand this if it were, say, a 44-minute long episode or a two-parter. But this was a bit much, don't ya think?
Okay, so it was a bit entertaining to see how the other ponies would attempt to do the talents predicted by their switched cutie marks. That would've probably been the best part of the entire episode. Now, for

Copic Markers and Pony colorsI get a LOT of questions regarding what colors I use where when it comes to the ponies, and I keep saying I'm gonna make a little guide. Well, let's give it a shot.Copic Markers and Pony colors in Personal More Like This
For the majority of my covers, I use Copic markers to color. Copics are light-fast, alcohol markers... not unlike a classic school marker, but higher quality. I prefer Copic over other brands primarily for a few reasons: Variable tips (markers, fine, brush, etc), better blending, and they can be refilled! This is the BIG selling point to me... this means you can buy the marker once, and continue to refill. It also means you can custom blend colors should you desire. Copics also guarantee that if you buy Y00 yellow, and then buy another down the line, the colors will match. I've bought the same marker color from other brands and had them not match. I will use other brands here and there for very specific colors or effects, but Copic is 99% of my marker work.
So... when I do a cover or whatever, I do basic ink lines first wit

New music + counterI've realized that I haven't been pursuing my music enough. I only have nine youtube subs, never been featured on eqd (god knows I've tried), get barely any soundcloud views, etc. I have decided to make this pledge... For every twenty comments, youtube messages, tumblr asks, emails, etc. that I get saying that you want to hear more, I will make another song. I am already working on a couple projects, but I feel like no one is listening to me. If no one wants to hear my music, then let me know and I'll stop posting it. Also feel free to post any advice you have on this subject.New music + counter in Personal More Like This

I do hope you enjoy my rhyming show.
I can't tell you how fun I have on this account,
All I can say is it's a staggering amount.
I'll be uploading a rhyme for each episode's tale,
Here's hoping it stays consistent and I do not fail.
Let me know if you would like a rhyme of your own,
For my lack of visual artwork with my rhymes I'll atone.
Thank you for reading and feel free to leave comments,
You all are awesome; let the fun times commence!
