let me share my stories with you
Twitter deviantart My art Fanart My Comic about me garbage

used the monster generator and got “lying cat boy who wears regal clothes” and “loose elk girl who wears a maid outfit” so i made some lazy pixels (didn’t clean the linework at all) and they’re transparent bc that’s fun right??

jesus i tried to combine the gangliness of a foal and the awkward cuteness of a baby bird to draw baby fluttershy but it just looks like fluttershy is dying of a terminal illness

Another pony with “realistic” bird wings; this time, Twi’s are loosely based on a Purple Martin’s.

I need more ponies with realistic bird wings

I based Rainbow Dash’s on a Tern’s wing shape (for speed) with the coloring of a Rainbow Lorikeet’s.

Little Miss Pondwater, with the hair of a moss ball and the skin of a koi.

samsketchbook: What artistic improvements have you made that you are most proud of? / the real question: what pets do you have if any


I think this picture meant a lot to me because I was really struggling with getting that color scheme down for a long time. I’ve also seen my doodle quality just improve over the last 6 months by doing warm ups every day. It gives a nice measurement of how things are going.

This is sort of related, but it relates to being proud of my work or even liking it in the first place:

When I was taking a class, one of the “Get to know the class” assignments was to draw a tree. Any kind of tree, any style, in like 2 minutes. When the professor put them all on the big screen, I was super bummed because it looked like mine had gone missing and wasn’t up there. I couldn’t find it. Oh well. :( But I saw one that really appealed to me, and it was a style that I had been wanting to achieve, it was basically everything I wished my art would be.

I started getting a little sad, as not only was my tree lost, there was this pretty sick looking tree up there making me feel kind of little about my own work.

Then I realized that tree I loved was just my tree turned upside down. No joke this actually happened like 2 years ago. I didn’t recognize my tree for 10 minutes just because the angle was changed.

That was a REALLY significant moment for me just to learn that wow, my art actually looks cool when I don’t know it’s my art? Maybe I’m not that horrible? It changed the way I look at my art, and enabled me to be more proud of it in general. This is where it ties in with the question. I wasn’t proud of my work until the tree happened.

I felt like sharing that because it really helps me put things in perspective, and maybe it will help others too. Every time I am feeling down about my work, I remember that tree. You’re your own worst critic, it is so true.

As far as pets go, I actually have most of them listed on the side of my tumblr lol with their tags. I have 7 snakes, 2 fish, and a bunch of fire red shrimp!

reblogging this here because it’s really awesome and it was super nice of fimbry to go this in depth with their answer!

Thanks Fimbry!!

bjorgmans: (Oh ho ho ho favourite uvu) It's really neat!!! Where'd you learn to do that? I wish I could make physical plushies and stuff like that but sewing is not my strongest point haha

(on needlefelting)

not being able to sew for turds is basically why I love needlefelting so much :3 You can make some really cool plushies , and you only need two supplies, unspun wool and felting needles! ) You can find those online or in specialty fibercraft stores (I have one called “the woolery” in my itty bitty town I’m v lucky). For more complex shapes you can use pipe cleaner as a base. (which i did with the sylveon doll pictured below) I learned from YouTube videos, online tutorials, and just diving in and trying it. I can direct you to more resources if you want, and I’ve been thinking about a tutorial??
