Stuff about my dreams
In almost all of my dreams I can fly... But it's not quite flying, it's most air swimming, or something like that. Funny fact is that that happened for so many times, as now, every time I "fly" in my dreams I'm like "yay! I can fly! I'm so amazed! And this time is NOT a dream! " but after that I wake up and I'm like... "Yup. Definitely not a dream".
So when I dream I'm completely convinced that it is real. Very real. And my dreams are mostly amazing adventures, with monsters, quests and stuff. If I could remember all I dream and write it with every single detail and dialogue I would be a famous writer. The coolest thing is that I would really live my stories because I really believe all of that is true! I wish I had a machine that would record every single thing I dream, it would be so amazing...
Once I dreamed something when I was chased by sort of Voldemort combined with a dementor... And it was a female. And there was a kid with me. And that thing was ruling the whole world, in some

Are you searching for truth?

My about page:

I do take commissions. :) Pony, anthro, or whatever, (though my next focus will probably be further developing my anthro pattern).
*If you are interested in an OC, know upfront that prices are typically 20-50% more due to development and varies by complexity.*

Notes about my plushies:
-Current List
-Pricing and Commission Details
-Mares are ~13.5" (~34.3 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-Fillies are ~11" (~28 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-I draft all my own patterns with Photoshop/paper towels and make embroidery files with SophieSew.
-I don’t share my patterns or embroidery files with anyone, but I do have tutorials for SophieSew and offer advice when I can, but try to figure things out on your own if you’re really interested. Bear in mind that no one told me how to do this, but the information was available. :)
-I do plan to distribute my patterns and embroidery files in the indefinite future.
-My plushies are made with minky fabric. Accessories may be either minky or ultra cuddle.
-Stuffed medium-firm
-I typically make two passes of hand sewing for manes and tails and three for non-swiveling heads for better durability. I have had experience with things coming undone on some pony plushies I’ve bought. It also happened to my earlier Bon Bon right before I shipped her, at which point I declared “that is unacceptable!” :stare: So I try to prevent that. :)
-Smoke free home!

And here’s some old-school DA information that I just left here:
Current Residence: The Republic of Texas (I can dream can't I?)
Favourite genre of music: Classic Rock, Big Band and Swing, Celtic, Soundtracks
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: One that takes a USB drive and has a line out. (A modified a Zone Electronics Portable Mini Speaker)
Shell of choice: A 90s 4U server case, not that I'm using that though, there aren't enough mounts for drives
Skin of choice: Windows Classic (Customized)
Favourite cartoon character: If I had to choose: 1 female, too many choices. 1 male, Odd Della Robbia (who is straight BTW)
Personal Quote: Don't just look at the shiny side of a dirty coin.


Greetings! Hope your weekend is going well. So, I had the pleasure of being interviewed on radio EveryPony RU:…
Let me say, it was thanks to the suggestion of :iconnakedskull:, so thank you again! :D It was quite an experience and quite a bit of fun too. Makes me thankful for communication in general and think about how much we seem to take it for granted even between those of us who speak the same language.
I thought it could be downloaded somewhere afterward, but I haven't been able to find that anywhere, so... ^^;
It's really hard to tell whether this was my very first, but it's the first in my main "Favorites" folder:
Animation background... by Norke
It still stands the test of time considering the deviation itself is from 2008. :O

I need a little help with a build.

I need a schematic for an eggcrate display...

I tried wiring it up with no transistors but it shorted to all the bulbs connected and lit them all up in a test pattern.

I need the unit to light digits 0 through 9 and a dollar sign in the style of Card Sharks and Tic Tac Dough.

You wouldn't need transistors necessarily, but you would need a diode in series with every bulb, otherwise you just have a resistor network. I thought I had a schematic handy, but I couldn't find it. But you'd just multiplex them as you would LEDs, except with a bulb and series diode in place of an LED. :)
+ ----(~~)--|>|---- -

That way, when you apply power and a return to their respective rows and columns, only the intersecting bulbs should be lit. Let me know how it turns out! :D
Would this work with the old pre-wired character method I'm doing?
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2019  Professional General Artist
...If that's what it sounds like, I don't suspect as much. I can say, for example, that if the columns were labeled A-E, and the rows were labeled 1-7, as a row/column matrix with diodes, you couldn't light both A3 and C1 without also lighting A1 and C3. You'd have to address either one row or one column at a time. (In my case, I'm technically addressing 1 pixel at a time, so every bulb is lit for almost 1/35 of a second to compensate for power fluctuations to maintain uniform brightness.)

So, if you're going for something old school, with each character being pre-wired, I think you're going to have to use a state machine. A purely electro-mechanical design would call for a row of common power contacts. The number of contacts = the maxim of pixels that will be lit at one point, (which, in your case, I believe would be the '$' using, depending on style, 17-21 contacts assuming a 5x7 display). Then either a disc or cylinder with X number rows of the same number of contacts, where X = the number of states, 11 in your case. (That would be like a stack of 21 11-position rotary knobs.) The contacts on each row would then be wired to each pixel that should be lit according to each state, (the state having the least amount of pixels lit would have unconnected contacts to spare). One side of the bulbs would of course all be wired in common.

Alternately, form the mechanical method, if you have commonly used rows of pixels lit, you could use relays and just energize those relays when those pixels need to be lit for a given state. That way, you could have a single rotary knob that would just energize sets of relays.

Now, a state machine with only diodes would mean you'd need a diode for each pixel for each state, (that's a lot of diodes). Then you'd have one power contact that could rotate to another single contact for each state, (an 11 position rotary knob or similar). The contact for each state would be the common for all the diodes that connect to each respective bulb/pixel to be lit for that state. One side of the bulbs would of course all be wired in common.

Let me know which way you go and I'm certainly looking forward to the result! Also let me know if you have any more questions. ^^

Hey there.

Just bought some IN-8-2 Nixie tubes for a display board to test on my new Arduino MEGA.

The boards will be distributed for my Design Challenge.
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2019  Professional General Artist
:XD: Believe me, I've noticed. :iconrarityknowsplz: Just haven't had much time to respond, let alone participating in the challenge itself.
But I have to ask, what boards would be distributed? The MEGA or the display board? :iconajhmmplz: I think I saw something about that somewhere, thought it was a journal or something, but can't find it. :shrug:
AlbinoFluttershy Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2019
The display boards will be distributed. I will build one for myself as a test, then if anyone needs one I'll build one for them. It'll take ~$90 and some delivery and labor time to make, so I figure the boards should cost around $100 to leave me $10.
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2019  Professional General Artist
Ah, I hear ya. Maybe someday I'll make a nixie something-or-the-other.

adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Edited Jan 20, 2019  Professional General Artist
No probs! :aww:

Gah! Wish I would've read this in it's entirety earlier!
Yes, I think I'd like two soft-shaded full-body furry slots, and I'm good for it at the drop of a hat. My problem is... at such short notice I don't know what I want yet and need to go to bed. ^^; I'm thinking something from my story, but I don't have any references. >_< So maybe something with Chrysalis, Nightmare Moon, Tempest, and someone else? ...Perhaps a general lineup (two slots as one image)? Oops, just noticed the title, Valentines/couple's commissions. :icontwilightderp2plz: ...Still, I think I can find some couples after some thinking. :iconrarityknowsplz: Luna and Big Mac come to mind. :XD:
  ...I'm not sure if you reserve slots or not, but I'll keep thinking on this, and not wanting to impede the desires of others, I 'd very much appreciate at least one slot. :eager:
DrawingJules Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ok, I'll save two slots for you!  :D
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2019  Professional General Artist
Thank you! :aww:
So... how comfortable are you with drawing from descriptions? I could send you a couple paragraphs if you'd be comfortable with that. But if you don't think you'd be comfortable with that, then I do have an alternate idea available. :)

For the other, I'd want Queen Chrysalis and Morton Saltworthy. (This took the longest to decide ^^;, a strategic pulling form the hat. :XD:) References handy here for Morton since I believe this is the only time he's ever seen:…

Thank you again! :iconapplejackhappyplz:

TBH, from my experience, low-poly models are much more difficult to make than high-poly models because the textures have to do the heavy lifting, and I'm terrible at textures IMO. :XD:
Plus, I dig the low-poly style. :D

Thanks for the fave on my WIP mini eggcrate digit.

I made a filter for the light, now all I have to do is wire a character set.

It'll run off a 4028 chip.
