Lost in Space

Thu Nov 13, 2014, 8:15 PM
I need to get my little corner on this site back up and running.

Ever been bogged down by something that you don't have time for anything else? Of course you have.
Mine are the same as everyone else: Work, school, and lack of prioritization.

But I'm back from the void, determined to do better in all aspects of my life.


You'll be hearing more from me.

Merry Christmas!

Hiring New Moderator

Do you have what it takes?


The group #Ponies-For-Everypony is seeking one new moderator to add to the staff.
Your job would be to sort the submission box-to move submissions to the correct folder. It might sound like an easy task, but we need dedicated people to apply themselves to the role. The group receives many submissions per day, so you will need to have the time to do the job properly.
If you would like to apply and become part of the staff please send me a note with a small description of why you'd be a good choice to be added to the staff.

We are looking for dedicated people, though, so only apply if you actually feel motivated to help out on the group.

Thank you in advance to anyone who applies.

What You Gonna Do?


Classes are finally over! No more triple integrations! No more trying to understand Maxwell's Equations! I am free, free I tell you!
And you know what that means!? Well, do you!?

It means I can do what I want.




So I can finally settle down for the last month before classes resume. And draw shit. And animate shit. And do what I want. So expect to see some more action from this account. Cause if you don't, then I probably died.

Tumblr


I made one a few months ago. (Cause I do what I want.) I'll be putting up various artsy things. Some things that will not appear here.

Commissions


Since I'm finished with classes, I have some time to myself to do whatever I want. And in between working on an animation, I would really like to open myself up for commissions. It would be great experience working with deadlines and drawing for you! Any support would be greatly appreciated. It would also help paying for my summer classes. Rules, procedures, and examples are provided below. I look forward to working on commissions!

Currently, I'm opening myself to three slots.


:star:RULES:star:
:bulletgreen: Ponies only
:bulletgreen: No gore
:bulletgreen: No porny-graphy. No explicit stuff.
:bulletgreen: OC's are allowed. Provide references and details!
:bulletgreen: Pay-pal only

:star:THE PROCESS:star:
:bulletgreen: Send me a note on dA or e-mail me ( totaluniverse541@gmail.com ) that you want a commissioned piece. Include as much information as possible as to how you want it to look. If it's an OC, provide a reference. Remember to provide details as well. I can't read you're mind to see what you want.
:bulletgreen: I'll sketch out what the final product will look like (unless it is a sketch, of course) and send you a small image for approval. If there's something that need's fixin', here's where you'd tell me.
:bulletgreen: Once everything is fine and dandy, and you like the preliminary sketch, I'll send you my Pay-pal information and an estimated date of completion.
:bulletgreen: When I receive full payment I'll send you a high resolution final image to you. [300 dpi .png image]



PRICING

Simple Sketch: $4



Lineart: $8


Flats: $10


with Shading: $12


with Background: add $2 - $10 (depending on difficulty)
I consider this a simple background.


For an extra character, add a flat rate of $4 dollars to the final total.
Again, just send me a note on deviantART or shoot me an email ( totaluniverse541@gmail.com ), and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.



I look forward to working with you!

ITS BEEN A WHILE, HASN'T IT?

Wed May 2, 2012, 10:56 PM

Yep, Way Too Long...



So it's 1:33 in the morning and I've just finished writing a paper and I thought I'd update my deviatnART journal. How are you all doing?

College
Wake up, go to school, study, come home, go to sleep, repeat. As many of you must surely know, the semester is almost at its end. My classes are almost finished (just 3 weeks to go!) and until then, I have to maintain my focus on my studies. Although I really, really want to draw ponies, I have to resist the temptation and learn. I must be diligent in my work! I must make Twilight Sparkle proud!

Pony?
Once the semester's over, I really want to continues on my projects. I actually have an animation in the works, with music and everything, so I'm excited. I also want to open paid commissions (if anyone ever actually wants one) so I'll have to get better at my art.

That's all for now!

Have you seen this tumblr yet?! I have to say, I love everything about it. It has pony, pony art, non-pony art, and the best thing: references! References of animation, drawing style, and other cool stuff! If you haven't checked this out, please do!

That's right! Free pony-related sketch commissions! Just be one of the first three to post a comment on what you want drawn and you'll have your sketch! If you're not one of the first three, don't fret. I'll be opening up slots as I finish them. Just keep an eye out for a journal update.

These are free sketches, so I'll get to them when I can. I'll be posting them up in groups, as a submission. Also, you can get a high resolution version of your sketch if you want it. Just note me an e-mail or somewhere I could send it.

Rules:
:bulletgreen: No more than 2 characters please.
:bulletgrees: No gore or anything explicit.

It'll probably look something like this:

Digital Comics

Enough ponies!
There's never enough ponies

Allright, allright. So, you've ever heard of digital comics? How about flash comics?
Well, let me tell you something. It is a whole new way of looking at comics. Old comics were one page, and you'd have to read it from left to right, top to bottom.
But check this out. Now, with the use of Adobe Flash, the comic has become more interactive, opening a new method of storytelling. Below are two helpful "tutorials" by Balak01 that I have found to be very helpful. They are more focused on the storytelling method itself rather than the "how-to-use-flash", but they are what inspired me to look more into it.






I've heard about this a while back, but I've never had the time to try it. I'll make one soon though (pony-related of course). So if you're interested, go check them out and start making comics!

That's all for now. Until next time!

Hello Everyone!

Alright, for those of you who watch me and don't care much for ponies, I apologize for the pony-related art that I have been submitting. It's just so addictive. I'll try to tear away from those confounded ponies once in a while.
Moving on....

PONIES!

For those of you who have seen my comic, Trixie's Story (fav.me/d4a21du), I have news!
:iconrated-r-ponystar: has written a fanfic based on it. I have to say, I enjoyed reading it and I think it followed the comic very well. click on the link to find it: docs.google.com/document/d/1-N…

Sketch Commissions
Allright. I want to try something. I want to do five free pony-related sketches. I've never tried something like this before and I think it'l be fun. It'll be even better because it's related to ponies and nothing beats that. Anyway, the first five people that ask in the comments will have their free sketch. No gore or porny-graphy or stuff like that. And keep it simple. These are free and I'll do my best.
Here's hoping someone will ask....

Once again, classes have begun again, and everything seems to be put on hold while I get educated.

NOT THIS TIME!

Well, probably, but I will balance the two. ART & SCHOOL!

And ponies.

Can't live without them ponies. But I'll get back to my normal, somewhat-pony-free settings once the show's over.

Peace out fellas!

NEW JOURNAL SKIN! and then some.
Sunday June 5, 2011



As amazing as it may seem, I'm still alive and well. Even though OI've not submitted something in a very long time, I've been lurking around dA from time to time. As it goes, schoolwork is the force behind my absence. And although it finished about a week ago, I start again tomorrow.

Hopefully, this time, again, I'll keep up with my studies and submit new shiznit when I can. I've submitted one thing, which you can see here:
She is by matrix541

SHAZAAM!!!

I want to spend more time on my work before I submit them so it wont be some crap on paper when you see it. Nobody likes crap.

Thanks for watching, and for reading this in its entirety. Peace out dawgs.
