Turning 20 in 4 hours. Goodbye teens. Can’t believe how much I’ve done last year. College, drivers license, big things, big things. Still, obviously I’ve been an adult for a while now but still, it’s official now. I’m not a teen anymore.
This is a rant but also kind of silly but kind of true and idk why im making this maybe its relate-able to a lot of you 

Spam is a brand of canned cooked meat made by Hormel Foods Corporation. It was first introduced in 1937 and gained popularity worldwide after its use during World War II. By 2003, Spam was sold in 41 countries on six continents and trademarked in over 100 countries.


Spam is also a verb:
"to send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on the Internet."

Now there is such a thing as shitposting, where you spam copy-pastas of the bee movie script, character emoticons, memes, memes made of character emoticons. That kind of spam.

Then there is spam like actually flooding someone with notifications, be it a message on youtube over and over, emails (this is the earliest form of online spam), pop-ups, and, in the case of this website (and others): Favorite-Spam.


Oh,
BOY.


Lemme tell ya, making the MLP Silhouette Edit series and all those Orb Edits for Torben, are a blessing like 80% and a curse 20%.
Every now and then, I get one person who favorites the entire set of silhouette edits or Torben Orb Edits and whatnot. It happens, and usually it's fine, and even makes me smile a bit. 
But on occasion, I encounter people who "favorite spam" AKA going above and beyond to favorite so many pieces of my art. Unfortunately, this had kind of made the act of favoriting art have much less, even almost zero meaning. I mean, how could ALL of that REALLY be your "favorite" art? Now yes, I know, we favorite art thinking that we are doing something nice and sweet and taking the time to find and press the button. 
That being said, I know others who are also annoyed by this kind of spam. What really makes it annoying isn't what is being done, rather what is left undone by someone who favorites so much from one person at one time: commenting.

If you favorite 10 pieces of art without commenting on any of them, that's fine to me. 25? Eh, still alright. But 50? 75? 100? Without saying anything on any art you really found interesting? It makes it seem like NONE of what was favorited was actually meaningful. Because if you really really considered what you favorited a favorite, you would maybe try to comment on a FEW of that persons content.

I know this seems very nit picky and selfish, and it probably is. Don't get me wrong: at I said above i understand that the time anyone takes to favorite that much is worth a thank you, but there comes a point where you just think these thoughts to yourself about who is favoriting your art and why they are, and why they don't say anything at all. They come, they fave, maybe watch, maybe llama, and you never hear from them again. 

My own suggestion is: don't mass-fave unless you're doing so to put your art in an organized folder. Comment as much or more than what you favorite, say what you like about the persons art, even one little thing. If you favorite art thinking you are making the person happy by doing so, I'm not saying you are wrong to think that, but I am saying that a comment is many more times as sweet, meaningful, and will make that artist much more happy than a favorite that simply gets deleted in their notifications. I have my own section of comments I save called "Sweetness" and whenever I am down I look at that on occasion. I don't have a folder for that for favorites, that's for sure. 





Anyways, I hope I didn't come across as like, mean or anything. This was really just thoughts I have had for months now.
Welp. Core expired and 2nd semester starting tomorrow. I’m sorry if I go back into hiding when it comes to posting on here I’ll try to post photos that I take !
Somnambula Silhouette Wall Edited (Dark)
While editing the Normal edit I happened to do an effect that made it darker and inverted almost, and, well, I went with it to make this parallel-universe style edit. 

This one I really wanna know what you all think because I honestly think it's really interesting color-wise.

"Focus on my voice and feel yourself unlock your potential. Imagine everything that troubles you as one big cloud. Now let it float away. You are relaxed. Free to do anything you wish."— A Rockhoof and a Hard Place

I tried not to make this look so "fairy-like" but I think I failed. That being said I think it still looked good with the effects and softness and all. Im pleased enough ;3;

Tell me your thoughts below! :)

"Hellooooooo! Me again! [giggles] I'm gonna get so grounded."— My Little Pony The Movie

So unlike the seapony form edit which ALSO had a yellow background, one that I wanted to make blue bc, well, underwater, to avoid the trouble and also have something fitting, I made this background beach-sand themed. Think it's pretty darn good.

Share your thoughts below as always!

"Ma'am, can you put the Dizzitron on maximum speed? I wanna push my limits."— Wonderbolts Academy


The intention was clear: add clouds. Make it feel like she is in the sky, on a cloud, ready to take off.

You be the judge of how well I did in achieving that feel ;3;

"A monster attack?! Blast! I'm performing at the ceremony this afternoon, and I still haven't sorted out what to play. How am I meant to practice with a monster invading Ponyville?"-Slice Of Life

EDIT: So I forgot to ever update this with the re-edit I did with the musical note background, like I did with this one:  Octavia Light Silhouette Wall Edited by ConnieTheCasanova 
and I accidentally did ANOTHER edit a few days ago so consider that a re-re-edit XD. I think the 3rd and 4th edits are equally as good. So take a look and see how much better it is than the REALLY BAD FIRST EDIT why did I even think that looked good? Idk. Anyways enjoy it! 




Beginning this "Dark" silhouette mini-series, is Tavi :) I love how I did that glow, and the green-ness around her as well. And the texture I did to the violin was really nice. I didn't have a reason for the glow and background colors, so I hope you all like it :D

As always, please comment. Frankly I love it more than faves.

Marble Pie Silhouette Wall Edited
"Mm-hmm."

This one had a clear theme in mind for the edit. I wanted it to feel like a cavern of gems. And, once again, I'm pleased with the outcome. I like the green spot and the subtle colors in the background, alone with just, well, a whole lot of things. It just really combined well into this great edit.

So yeah tell me what you think cus I enjoy hearing it ;3;

"Well, don't just stand there! We got a boulder to move! And I'm in charge."— Hearthbreakers

This one, and Marble Pie's edit, I really felt I nailed the softness of the background to make the character pop out. 


Originally, I was going to add more green to the background but it ended up making it feel like, slimy/uglier, so I stuck with the purple body and mane color. The difference bw this and Marble Pie is that this has more blue/indigo in it.

So yeah enjoy this one and share what you think about the edit below ples ;3;

I like how that status I made tagging people and thanking them and letting them know about this really hard-worked on edit that I was looking forwards to hearing their thoughts on, led to a lot of favorites and comments on the status thanking them for tagging them, but zero comments on the edit itself by said people ;3;

Autumn Blaze Silhouette Wall Edited
"The way the light shimmers off everything, like, like it all suddenly woke up the moment you saw it. And you realize maybe the water and the mountains and the forest and the... yes, the rainbow and the stars and the sky are all looking back at you thinking the same thing? That we are a part of the everything. That maybe there's just one thing and we are all it." — Sounds of Silence

So I haven't even seen Sounds Of Silence yet but as every person in the fandom agrees: they did great with these designs. It's just too good not to make fanart of. The fanart of Autumn Blaze immediately exploded. And this silhouette was one of the few times where I actively thought while editing it "I need to do this edit justice. I need this to be perfect." And well, I sure as hell tried my best on this one. I wanted to 1) keep the duality of the original 2) make the 2 stand out more and 3) overall make the edit unique. I think I succeeded. 

Please share your thoughts on this one especially because this took over an hour for me to do ;3; for me thats long .3.

"Y'all ponies are crazy."— My Little Pony The Movie trailer

I'm (temporarily) back in business baby!


Here begins the next wave of silhouette edits, with that mega zip file of all of them constantly being promised by me and never getting the time or memory to do that ;3; o o p s


Nonetheless, this is just a warm up one. It was the first silhouette edit I did of this wave, ergo not my best work. But hey, if you like this one, you'll only love every other one even more lol. Im trying to make all of the effects I use NOT affect the character or surrounding swirls/patterns, rather the background only. I want to make the character pop out more than the original, and just, you know, give it some pizzazz. So yeah, enjoy the edits!

Dewdrop Leaf 2 (My Photo Edit)
I love how this one and the next one I just warm up a bit, and that's all it really needs. I really enjoy a certain texture I'm using to add splotches of color throughout. Very subtle but to me, noticeable.
