Been some time since I last made / posted art --- *knock on wood* as long as things continue as they are I will hopeful be able to post stuff more often.
  • Listening to: Madeon Remixes

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? From the time that AOL dial-up was still somewhat "normal," only recently got an account though
  2. What does your username mean? It's not a secret, but I don't give it away only a handful of people have got it right without using google
  3. Describe yourself in three words. Perfectionist, nuts, sarcastic
  4. Are you left or right handed? Ambidextrous Ha!
  5. What was your first deviation? An MIA/POW based pony
  6. What is your favorite type of art to create? Functional, I consider when I fabricate a machine and not only does it work perfectly but does so gracefully it's art.
  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Whatever ponyKillerX does
  8. What was your first favourite? RD
  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? I'm here for the ponies!
  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? I won't pick as it depends on the day, but they are the few that have repeats in my favorites folder
  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? Either NabbieKitty or fireflytwinkletoes I think it would be fun to grab lunch with either of these arts. Nabbie, as one of the few people that seems to have no fear messing with me (though shes been MIA lately) - also did an amazing job fleshing out my OC and even argued with me over select features lol. Or Firefly, always fun to talk to, also use an attempting to get all the plushies! lol.
  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? One member became like a younger brother to me, I'm my harshest critic, and it's nice to know that people care that I succeed much in the same way I helped them move forward with their life.
  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? Autodesk, Solidworks, Photoshop, and Photodraw if I could get my copy working again (broke the CD no backup)
  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Night time (location irrelevant)
  15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory? Excluding anytime I have an art commission in my inbox - It would be when I asked one of my favorite artist to critic my work, and though I got no written response, they added me to their watch list :D

For those still on the MLP APP and lost contacts because of the update here is my code 280af --- feel free to add
Also working on getting commissions and such again so more art soon :D

Also a tips / things I've noticed (general nothing in depth)

 - haven't had a chance to confirm, but if you are going for something with balloons make sure it's listed in the store first, otherwise it isn't actually available to win at the time.
 - I find if you're checking into the game often it works out better to have the shorter counter times - also once you've cleared out / open most of the land you will get enough bits that you will really just by cycling to get shards rather than bits.
 - Canterlot - Sweet Apple - Ponyville seems to be the order of which area gives you the most bits
 - To save time in Canterlot I isolated the main 6 to the Canterlot Inn by making the hedge wrap all the way around then putting in a foot path. They stay in there and any mane 6 out of this area are changelings.
 - Always check gems earned vs gems that might be needed to get them - quite often it is a negative balance.
 - After clicking Derpy if you move away from her quickly she might hide again - she will change location and be boxed (or just stand there in ponyville) - been able to get 3 gems in a row this way.

Feel free to add any other advice or thoughts.

As always ask anything, I have answers, not sure if they correspond, but that's life.

Okay I'm planning on posting more art an pics - but trying to see what people would be more interested in. The art will be of the quality of my latest art work "Just the Tips", however, I plan to make them as a short series of comics starting Vinyl Scratch. Also would anyone want to see more of the random pics from the mascot suits, Dash and Scratch being attacked by parasprites in the snow. Also though I don't plan to make a massive blog of this will be posting random pics of my VS plushie.  And for food for thought I also hope to do more on the side of military bronies like putting together an article including my views on things such as PTSD which 99% of the people I run into have no clue what it's really like, thank you hollywood.

Now for feedback what do you guy want - mind you I will still post whatever I feel like XD

And as always ask anything :D answers may vary

last but not least, MLP app MrHugoDrax always looking for more hearts, llama trades also available.

DA Membership went to :iconxeirla:, they should thank :iconmaldudemaker: as they declined to accept as they apparently just had a kid so with no free time they figured they would make poor use of a DA membership.

Things I owe:

Request to NabbieKitty and my contributions towards a colab with MrJakeTackett

Okay, as much as I hate it, seems Christmas is starting earlier than ever this year. In that spirit, I have an idea for a simple Christmas gift. I'm going to give away one free Premium Membership to an semi random artist on DA. What do I mean by semi random, you get to nominate the artists. I'm always looking for those hidden gems, those artist that somehow manage to get overlook and I'm hoping to bring more to light with this. Depending on number of entries I will attempt to keep a running list of all those nominated public. Have yet to determine how the final selection will be made - completely random, vote, or combination. Rules are simple you can nominate any artist except yourself one entry per-person.

Nominees:
:iconsilverband7::iconjoey-darkmeat::iconmaldudemaker::iconxxalex-your-godxx::icontofuudog::iconfrozenpyro71::iconxeirla::iconjoey-darkmeat:

Okay using Random.org and using these in number order of entry

Okay well here is the order in the event someone does not wish to accept the membership 3,7,8
1st :iconmaldudemaker: 2nd :iconxeirla: 3rd :iconjoey-darkmeat:


A single artist will be chosen no later than Christmas Day 2012, and will receive a One Year Premium Membership on Deviant Art from me. You do not have to watch me. And yes you do get credit for entering their name.
The Cut off time will be 16:00 Eastern Standard Time

It's been awhile for Disney to put a quality film together on it's own - this movie focuses on the 25-30 year old gamer while be titled a kids movie. The 3D is nice, as in it complements the film rather than being part of the action. Some slightly unexpected plot twists, nothing too complex just unexpected from Disney. Nice cameos, not overdone just enough to know they are there.
Which cons are people planning on going to? Only one I'm trying to set in stone for next year is BronyCon - what's everyone else doing?
Debating a new color for Scratch's Shades
Stick with Purple, Orangish Yellow, or Blue Cyan?

Once again ask anything no really anything and I will give the best answer that I can- that or you can comment on something, critique me if you will, that can be fun to.
Okay first of all not from me - If I were to make a plushie it would look like a sock tied up in string with a paper tail stapled on.

So :iconmillermademares: is giving away a Plushie - go see their page check out their art (add them to your watch list) and good luck.
I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything interesting but to my watches and anyone else ask me anything.
Had a blast running around BronyCon as Vinyl Scratch - So many hugs / brohoofs / pics it was insane - will have a more complete journal soon. There are a lot of people I would like to thank for the help getting around the con not to mention made it a most enjoyable experience.

Will have a more complete detailing of my experience at a later date
Once again you ask questions I give answers whether or not they are even related well we'll see.
