400 Watchers? Seriously?!
This is ridiculous.

Icon Change!For the first time since I made my account, I've changed my icon. That's four years.
This sassy Twilight brought to you by :iconWorkingOrder: and can be found here. Here's hoping they're okay with me using it. Go favorite it and stuff because it's great.
A New WebsiteGreetings, friends and followers.
If you haven't heard, I've started a new website in the same vein of Equestria Daily. It's a pony blog that focuses on fan content and the occasional bit of news, and it's called Canterlot's Finest. The difference between this site and Equestria Daily is that Canterlot's Finest has a higher acceptance rate so that anyone can be featured. Whether you're professional or amateur, your work will get its time in the spotlight. So please, I invite you to submit your work there! There's no doubt you'll have your work featured.
Started a Let's Play Channel!Hey deviantart! I know I don't post here much, but that's only because I never really have a good reason to. This time, however, I do have a good reason!
Myself and a friend have started a Let's Play channel on youtube called "No Console Required." We play games together, switch off occasionally, and generally have a fun time. The catch is that either one or none of us have played the game before, so it's new content for someone. If you're a fan of Let's Plays and blind commentary, you should check out our channel and subscribe if you like it.
Find No Console Required here!
FanfictionYou may have noticed that over the past couple days I've been uploading all my fanfiction that was on FiMFiction. Why is this? Not even I really know, it just fulfilled a nagging sense of completeness that I had. So yeah, now you can view basically all of my written works here, even though they look a little nicer on FiMFiction. Enjoy.
Mousepad WebsiteSo, I've concluded that deviantart isn't the best platform for selling mousepads. Sorry dA, I love ya, but you are not a great ecommerce place. Anyway, I've made a website!
Check it out, and tell your friends.
Mousepad Preorders ClosedYeah, I'm kinda posting this from the con, so... It's over!
However, you can still just order mousepads. Note me for details.
Mousepad Pre-orders, Round 2!Hey everyone! Are you attending Canterlot Gardens this September? Would you like a My Little Pony Mousepad? If so, now's your chance to pre-order one so that you're guaranteed to get the mousepad(s) you want! This time around I'm getting 300 pads, and pre-orders are going to be taken out of those - unless of course you order one that won't be at the con.
If you WON'T be attending Canterlot Gardens, you can still order mousepads! This time around, there is a flat rate shipping cost of $4.99. Be sure to include a shipping address! Your mousepad will be shipped out one week before the con, on Friday the 21st.
So, what do they look like? They'll be using the designs from this gallery. Below are some pictures!
So, if you would like to pre-
Game Project Seeking Help!Greetings, my followers. It isn't often that I come to you asking for something, but when I do, I try to make sure it's for a good reason. Right now, I think I have a good reason.
In the past month or so, I've been involved with a group called Team Shadowbolt. I've given advice, looked over their current progress, and generally helped where it was applicable. While I haven't the skills to do something related to the game, I help where I can by making little posts like these and getting them noticed. Anyway, Team Shadowbolt is currently working on a pony 2D metroidvania style game starring none other than Twilight Sparkle.
It's quite an ambitious project, but many of the positions have been filled, and every day they work more to progress with the game. In fact, a video has already been made and a second tech demo is in the works. However, they've recently hit a bit of a bump in the road. While spots such as programmer, character artist and musician(s) have been filled, they are lacking
Well, That Was Fun!BroNYCon has come to a close, and now I sit here in front of my computer with a pile of merchandise behind me. Later on I'll have a proper write-up of all the festivities, but for now I just need to rest.
Oh, and make two announcement sort of things.
First, I had two Vinyl mousepads left over, so if you pre-ordered and couldn't pick it up, send me a note and I can mail it out to you.
Second, due to their wild popularity and demand, I'm opening up normal orders for the next... I don't know, whenever I feel like it. So, if you didn't get the chance to purchase one, now is the time to do so. There is a flat rate shipping cost of $4.99, so depending on the mousepad you buy it'll be $19.99 or $24.99. Already existing designs are $15, new/custom ones are $20, as usual. Just send me a note with what you want and send the money to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading.

old journal entry from winter:
uaggh! I don't even know how to write journals anymore D: I hope everyone is
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.
Click on the tiny button at top left of this

Warning Journal - TheChaosRuler (OLD!)WARNING: LOTS of swearing and opinions down below. Read at your own risk.
This has gone on for long enough, and I am sick and tired of all of it.

Any updates and added information will be provided near the bottom of this journal.
DO NOT ATTACK OR APPROACH HIM. NOT ONLY IS HE NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR EFFORT, BUT IT COULD GET YOU BANNED. MY ADVICE IS JUST AVOID HIM, BLOCK IF NECCESSARY. DO NOT DO ART TRADES/REQUESTS FOR THIS GUY.
It is about fucking time I brought all of this to light. You stopped talking to me and un-watched me, so I can only assume you want nothing else to do with me. I don't have to defend you anymore. We're not friends, and now it's time to warn others so that they don't have to go through the same BULLSHIT you put me and so many other people through.

deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.
I feel much the same way about deviantART.
I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
The Inks of Ivywood [CLOSED]image by Emete
The Inks of Ivywood is now CLOSED. This means you can no longer receive the 'inktober bonus' of 200 PD. You are still welcome to do the prompts if you desire but please submit them to the appropriate folder (I.E. 'Trainers and their pokemon', 'just pokemon', etc.)
The folder is all caught up now, if we happen to have missed a deviation you can now post into the 'Missing PD Journal' to be looked at.
Tiers are still being rewarded so if you haven't been replied to, please be patient and we will get to you within the week.
Thank you for participating!
Read below for an example of Paint Splatter! You can also look up images on google by typing in 'Paint Splatter', also thinking like a blood splatter is also a good example
It appears that deviantART crashed late last night, when the time was switching over from October 19th to October 20th and because of it, people couldn't submit on time. Due to this as it was no
Our Book on Evolution: Signed Copies Available
Just over a year ago, myself and Agahnim reached a major milestone in our long-term goal of evolution education and outreach, which served the basis for starting our DA group Domain-of-Darwin over 11 years ago. We published our first book! Published by Inkwater Press and titled God’s Word or Human Reason?, the book has been available on Amazon since January of last year.
I am now offering direct purchases of signed, inscribed hardcovers that are personalized with a drawing of a bird or dinosaur of your choice. They are $40 (U.S. and Canada) or $50 (everywhere else), shipping included. Thanks to my excellent web developer friend, you can do this easily through this form on my website, with PayPal or a credit card:
