Starlight Glimmer Day (2018/2019)
Starlight Glimmer Day is upon us again! Here's what I was working so hard on for this day last year!!

Here, we have me, my little sister, our little dragon friends, the Railway Twins, Spike, and every pony in MMD in a group picture with Starlight Glimmer (the star pony) in the middle. This is a recreation of the final shot in the Season 5 finale, where Starlight Glimmer redeems herself after the time-travel debacle.

This is the biggest MMD pony picture I've ever made! It barely beats out all the other group pictures with ponies I've made (including the Christmas pictures)!!

Due to the sheer amount of ponies shown, this picture had to be broken up into 4 parts (originally 3 parts). I worked on placing the ponies in the back row first. To incorporate the back-middle, middle, and front rows of ponies into the picture, I used a green screen. If I attempted to put every single pony in the picture all at once, the file would corrupt and/or the picture will not render at all due to too many ponies/characters. You see, MMD can only handle not too many characters (animation and picture-wise), but once you go over the limit, the above-mentioned problems occur. Despite all this, I was bound and determined to make this recreation as close to the closing scene as possible.

There were a lot of last-minute pony additions to this picture and Daring Do was the first one. I placed her behind the back row all by herself because only the Mane 6 know she's real and everypony else thinks she's just a character in a book series and they all know her as A.K. Yearling, the author of said book series. I haven't used the Fire Emblem ponies yet and decided to use them for the first time here. I didn't plan on including Barb and Dim Sum, but I changed my mind. I put Barb next to Eliza, but due to Fluttershy, I couldn't put Dim Sum next to me. Rather than excluding her, I stuck her in the empty space in the front row with all the fillies and colts. It pained me to separate Dim Sum from me, but it was either that, or leave her out of the picture completely. I almost excluded Flurry Heart, but I didn't want that. There seemed to be nowhere to put her, and that gave me the idea to put her on top of Starlight's mane! (Best, choice, ever!!!)

I was about to splice the pictures together and remove the green screens when I realized I forgot to add Sunburst and Trixie!! I didn't want any flak from the bronies for excluding them, and luckily, there was an empty spot next to the Fire Emblem ponies, so I put them there. After that, I attempted to splice the pictures together and remove the green screen. After splicing the 2 back rows of ponies together, there were still bits of green screen around the ponies. As I attempted to remove those bits and pieces, they sometimes removed parts of the ponies in the process! I swear I used a screen color that didn't match any parts of the ponies!

It would've taken a long time to get the bits of green screen removed, so I decided to wait it out for a while. Then, on the 20th, I discovered plain colored flat backgrounds that would possibly work better than the green screen. I tried them out, and they worked! There's still very tiny thin colored lines around the characters from Celestia's row to the front, but it's not so bad. It's better than the bits and pieces that the green screen left behind!

The background was the hardest choice (need I say why?). For one thing, there are no pictures of just the roads in Ponyville, which is what I needed for the picture because the actual screenshot shows the ponies standing on a dirt road in Ponyville. Because of this, I had to use the Digimon Adventure stage that I used for Claire Corlett's birthday picture. I tilted the camera so that you see mostly the dirt ground, just like in the actual scene (even though it looks nothing like the dirt road in Ponyville).

I wanted to have it posted on Kelly Sheridan's birthday last year (2018) to make up for missing Starlight Day, but the picture wasn't finished at the time, so that ship had sailed. It could've been posted it on July 2018, but I noticed that Carrot Top's face was slightly obscured by Galaxy's head. That said problem didn't get fixed until August 7th, 2018, but I'm glad it's done.

Happy Starlight Glimmer Day, everybody!!! May your days be glimmery and bright!!!

Sunset Shimmer's Gift To Her Fans

Here's one last late Christmas gift picture for not just one person, but for anypony who's a fan of Sunset Shimmer.
Here, we have Sunset Shimmer in front of Canterlot High School presenting the viewer (her fans) flowers. I thought of this for Christmas last year. (I know it's late, but you know.)
MLP EQA Sunset Shimmer
I made this picture because even though Sunset Shimmer is not canon, it doesn't mean she shouldn't be loved. It's good that Sunset Shimmer has a brony holiday, but every little bit of love every other day of the year helps.
I would like to take this time to extend a hand of friendship to fellow DeviantArtist, :iconemeraldblast63::
You are the best (if probably the only) Sunset Shimmer fan I've ever found on this site. I've always said that Sunset Shimmer needs more love despite being non-canon, and I'm happy to know that you are one such brony. You are the inspiration for this picture, and I thank you for that.
I'd also like to take this time to say I'm sorry that I haven't been looking further into your gallery. I haven't finished "Forgotten Friendship" nor seen "Rollercoaster of Friendship" or the EG Summer Shorts. Plus, I don't like spoilers, and that's why I've been avoiding looking up Equestria Girls artwork. Also, even though fan artwork is not canon, there are chances that it could hint at possible spoilers, no offense.
But, keep on drawing Sunset, she thanks you for it.
:thumbsup::peace:ok sign f2u
Cheering Sunset ShimmerSunset Shimmer Smiling Emotion.ICON Sunset Shimmer Humanized:iconsunsetshimmersaluteplz:
There was someone else I wanted to tag here that had a lot of Sunset Shimmer art, but I can't remember that person's DA name. If you know someone who does a lot of Sunset Shimmer artwork, please send him/her this picture, I would totally appreciate it. It would make a great Valentine's Day card, considering that holiday is coming up.

That's about all I want to say. Let's keep Sunset Shimmer happy and alive in our hearts as much as we can. Keep calm and stay sunny, everypony! You're all awesome!! :peace:Flag of Sunset Shimmer.

Look! I've Made My Tie Disappear!
I made my first slider for my model yesterday! SmileEmotipony Smile2Emotipony SmileEmotipony TrixieEmotipony Cool

Prior to yesterday, I wanted to be able to remove my model's tie without the use of Miku Miku Effect. So, I looked up a tutorial on making sliders and followed it to make the result you see in the picture. I didn't think I could do it, but boy, did I prove myself wrong! Oh yeah
Vinyl Scratch The DJ PON-3
Maybe I'll make sliders to remove my headset and hat sometime. But until then, I'll leave it here with my "remove tie" slider.
don't worry it's a magic trick

Christmas Present For Saphir's Creator
Well, the Christmas season has arrived! It's the season of giving!! Christmas LaChristmas Carol TwoChristmas- Deerling
(I know it's late, but I didn't want to change this opening line.)
Christmas- Pikachu SantaChristmas- PlusleChristmas- MinunChristmas- Pikachu Elf
Here, we have Princess Saphir holding a rapier in her right hand and a magical fireball in her left hand. I thought of this on the 3rd Saturday of December last year.
I wanted to start using this model after downloading her update. I browsed through the character's bio for ideas. I decided to make a picture featuring 2 of her hobbies, training on her rapier and white magic.
Deerling (Winter)ChristmasChristmas- DeerlingChristmas Classic Sonic
The magic fireball in her left hand is from Toriel's power. I don't know if a fireball that's safe to touch and doesn't burn counts as white magic, but I would consider it. Because this particular fireball doesn't burn and you can touch it without harm. (Don't believe me? Start a game of UnderTale and play up to to Toriel's home, go to the fireplace and press the Interact button and read what it says.)
Frisk Christmas Icon
The background was the hardest part. I wanted a castle courtyard-type stage, because that's usually where sword training is done within castle grounds, as far as I know. I couldn't find one, so I used the Nintendogs park stage you see in the picture. It was the best I could do.

Sad Again by Mario-McFly
As some of you may or may not know, 2018 has not been treating me very well, if my recent picture was any indication. Silent cry

I had a horrible 33th birthday, it was the worst birthday ever. :tears: That day pushed my overwhelming sadness over the edge. :tears:

The one thing I can hope to turn this horrible year around is going to Crystal Mountain Pony Con, Utah's only answer to all the well-known brony cons. :thumbsup: It's not as big, but it is, as they say, the next best thing. :D

But sadly, I don't have enough money to go to the con. Sad fayse. I did my taxes this year (and on my birthday, I might add :angry) and afterwards, I found out I'm not getting much on my tax return this year. Silent cry I was hoping for my tax return to help me go to the con, but that hope was dashed after finding out how much I'm getting. :tears:

2 of my brony friends suggested I should start a fundraiser to solve this problem. Worried I wasn't so sure, because I think that fundraisers are a type of e-begging, people hate e-begging, and they guilt trip people. :worries: (I apologize in advance if that last statement offended anyone, that's just my belief on fundraisers.) My friends insisted that a fundraiser would help me, so I started a GoFundMe (fundraiser), even though I still worry about it. :worries:

Here's the link to the GoFundMe to learn more info:

The dates for the Pony Con are on the picture in the link. As of now (June 10th), I have 2 months and 20 days to try to raise money to go to Crystal Mountain Pony Con. If I don't raise enough, then I can kiss meeting Nicole Oliver (Princess Celestia/Cheerilee) and Peter New (Big Mac) good-bye. sad I would say more here, but I think the link will tell you the rest of what you need to know. Please help spread the word, I implore you.

Thank you so much for your time and attention, it means the world of Equestria to me.
