  1. Dunno if there's still anyone here that remembers I existed, but just wanted to pop in and say hello, it's been a LONG time.

      I remember you man, just barely. And I wonder if you remember me :P

  2. Damn, I think it's been close to a year since I last visited this place.

  3. After months of inactivity, this is how I make my return.

      I was all like: "What the hell, they allow that for the banner? That's awesome!"

  4. I'm not taking anything here personal. I'm debating as you are. If you think otherwise, I'd suggest we move into a private discussion.
  5. I know what you said and it still doesn't make it easier. Because even once you've done away with that bit of dirt, you still have the entire rest of the room, and that can be easily overwhelming. Does that mean the site is understaffed? Maybe, maybe not. That's up to them to determine. Just because you were able to take on that kind of workload and still moderate the forum, doesn't mean everyone else can and should. People handle stress and workload differently and it's unfair to expect everyone to be on your level, nor should it imply that they are incompetent as moderators. So what you're saying is that you were actively looking for dirt to throw in the face of the first staff member to respond? How is that any better? Constructive criticism offers advice on how to improve. All I've seen from you thusfar is passive-aggressive jabs aimed at painting the staff as a whole as a bunch of lazy, narcissistic god-complexes and that's neither a fair nor accurate depiction. Is the mod team perfect? Of course not. Could improvements be made? Definitely. But they're people, not some corrupt corporate machine. Why treat them like one?
  6. If bad posts are "literally everywhere", how does that make moderation easier? That's like saying cleaning the house is easier because dirt is "literally everywhere". Than that's your personal choice. Moderation isn't exactly a "job" either and apparently people need constant reminders that mods have lives too and aren't just machines dedicated to spending all of their free time digging through thousands of threads to find any thing out of line just to get screamed at and told that they're power-tripping egotistical tyrants. It's not exactly a good idea to use straw-man arguments to demonize someone you have a problem with if you'd like to be taken seriously. NewCalamity's profile is quite obviously meant to be read tongue-in-cheek.
  7. Holiday icon update.

  8. I only just found out now that I can now pick Octavia for the best pony section of my profile. Very good.

  9. Thank you! ^^ The eyelashes/brows clipping through the hair is more of a stylistic choice. I know there are those that don't like and I might experiment with not doing that. I'm not really good enough yet to be able to add the face wrinkles and lines that help define the expression otherwise.
  10. So I did a sketch of Lyra in a stream. Did a lot of experimenting (mainly the eye style and shading) and I'm actually pretty happy with the results. Did this one as a gift for a friend of mine from Tumblr. I think this pretty much affirms that Photoshop will be be drawing program now instead of SAI. Might still use SAI for lines, though.
  11. Happy Birthday! :D

      Thanks Vexx! :3

  12. Wore my Zap Apple Jam shirt to class today. As I was walking out the door, this girl in the front row yelled out "IS THAT A MY LITTLE PONY SHIRT?!" :L

  13. Happy Birthday, Swoop! :D

      Happy Birthday! (wanted to add that to the main message, but I guess you can't add new lines, lol).

      Ha, it seems that way(you weren't by chance born at 7:21 pm were you?). XD

      Anyway, thank you!

      Haha, nope. Around 5 in the morning. :P

  15. Thick McRunFast!

  16. So, this is basically my first serious attempt at lineart and a new coloring method. The lineart is pretty inconsistent, but I tried. I made this from the Spitfire sketch I posted in my sketch thread. Took the opportunity to fix some mistakes.
  17. So, I did a sketch of Spitfire this time. Wanted more practice with this kind of pose. I'm pretty sure the front legs are a bit too small.
  18. Okay, so because I'm so happy with how it came out, I guess I'll post this one here as well. This was drawn for Moonlight Fire in my sketch request thread.
