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.


PSA:  Commissions OPEN by Marmorexx
Also, I did see the premier. (Spoilers!) ...Sombra did way too much talking for my tastes, but it was good to see him go. :greetings: Discord's faking to be hurt was so transparent to me as a viewer it was flat hilarious! :XD: I would have qualms about how exceptionally easy and expected Sombra's defeat was with virtually no real suspense, but for seeing Grogar, Tirek, Chrysalis, and Cozy (who apparently Grogar thought enough of to free from Tartarus), I believe this was the whole point. :D
But we still don't really know Grogar's actual motive. But the other's reluctant laughter at the end was priceless. :nod: Makes me have interesting hopes for the finale where these 3 could take on Grogar by their own choice with the mane cast incapacitated (including students, lords of chaos, and other characters). But I won't get my hopes up. ^^;
Also, that Chrysalis derp was worth a double take. x3
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... ^^;
Eclipse? Ehh, my thoughts from the perspective of a developer of sorts if anyone cares:…

Oh, and there's this too:
<da:thumb id="788545828"/>
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

bruh just watched the new ep of MLP

Idk how I feel about Tia and Luna retiring. Maybe they aren't retiring completely, like maybe just from Equestria, but somewhere else on their little planet or something


just realized—the scene where King Sombra had Cadence and Shining Armor in chains (16:04) that was a scene from one of the comics!! Idk if you recognized that or not; I believe issue #37
MLP Rainbow Dash (Wink) Plz 
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2019  Professional General Artist
Hehe, I guess that remains to be seen. :D

I do somewhat recall that. Though Twilight was chained up as well, and no inexplicable alicorn foal was around at that time either IIRC. :XD:

I guess I enjoyed the other villains more than anything. Heheh, I see Sombra got knocked off. :greetings: Could've done a little less talking though IMO. ^^
SydneyitsSydneyYo Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Actually yeah Sombra was talking way too much, and his voice should have been deeper like in season 3 or something 
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2019  Professional General Artist
:iconeeyupplz: Very much agreed there. His sinister malicious mysteriousness, the only redeeming trait he had IMO, was just flat gone. :O Just a power hungry unicorn that got stuck into black magic I guess. :hmm:

Have you seen my updates?
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2019  Professional General Artist
I have! :D Looks like things are coming along nicely. :nod:
AlbinoFluttershy Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2019
They are.

But I have a slight problem... how to wire those diodes?!

I made SMD trails for wires so that I can connect the ULN2004 to the diodes. Hopefully that works...
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2019  Professional General Artist
...Are they MELF diodes?
(1 Reply)
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.
adamlhumphreys Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2019  Professional General Artist
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.

25% OFF - Valentine's Commissions by DrawingJules
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  Student Digital Artist
Ok, I'll save two slots for you!  :D
