  1. The first few songs are very catchy. I have a hard time actively listening to the entire album, so I've come to know the first half very well. By the time I reach the last half/quarter I tend to lose focus and it just sounds like random noise.
  2. I can relate VERY closely with this. Nearly 23 here, and I feel like I'll be at least 30 before I can buy alcohol without being carded. Or grow full facial hair for that matter. And being slightly lower-than-average height and more naive/innocent doesn't help either! I'll just look like a kid in a suit who can't be taken seriously by any employer! Oh, and I looked like a freshman all throughout high school, too. I'm hopeless.
  3. The realness of a tulpa is something I've been inwardly debating since I started working on my first tulpa ~1.5 years ago. After about 5 or 6 months I had experienced a vivid, alien thought that I believed had came from my tulpa, but for some reason I caved and questioned the existence of it until I couldn't believe that what I had experienced was true, and that I had been lying to myself the entire time. Likely this was the case, but my belief system was also paper thin to the point that a single question or statement could cause me to doubt any progress I had made. At this point, tulpas seem
  4. You shouldn't feel like an idiot, because hey, I feel exactly the same! It's just that my fear of initiating a conversation stems from social anxiety irl. I've never felt comfortable imposing anything on anyone, so I probably come off as uninterested or distant, which isn't constructive in the least if one wants to make friends! P.S.:I don't have any friends. So... you like pigs? My avatar's a dogface.
  5. I just wish I had realized it sooner too. I kept reading guides and posts and having those "oh, crap!" moments where I felt like everything I had done with my tulpa was false, that I was just fooling myself. Any confidence and belief that I had were always short lived, and I ended up driving myself crazy with guilt, confusion and sadness. I pretty much had to quit on my tulpa, which I started on last November, and let my brain rest for a few weeks. Just last month, I started working on another tulpa, because I honestly didn't know where to go with Lethal, my first. What's sad about this is
  6. Just understand that at some point, Moni may decide to make changes to her form, name, personality, etc on her own. Take it as a sign that she's beggining to develop her own sense of self/sentience/independence and don't force any changes on her. Also, before I forget, try to make sense - to yourself - of why you believe in Moni. Why is your tulpa real to you? Who exactly is Moni; a brain alien; something religion/spiritual-based; something with entirely physical/chemical boundries? What I'm getting at is that simply having blind faith in your tulpa could result in a major regression in t

  8. It doesn't matter whether someone's a brony or not, what matters is the kind of person they are, and whether you're compatible with them. I believe that people can change, and them being a brony may be enough to respark and begin an old and broken friendship, but past issues can still marr your opinion of them. What cartoon they like doesn't define who they are. You can "love and tolerate" anyone without being a brony, but there are times that tolerating won't do anything, instead needing action and words to solve the problem. Tolerating someone doesn't mean letting them beat you with a ba
  9. I've been having some problems the last month or two, tulpa-wise. I'm confused and was wondering if anyone could give me some insight. Rant/vent below.
  10. It seems he really enjoyed it. Well done.

    Gaming Any Kingdom Hearts fans?

    I was a huge fan of KH up until the second one. After that I stopped keeping up with the series, and have pretty much lost any motivation to return to it, what with the countless spin-offs that have come out the last few years. I want KH3! Not the over-complicated mumbo-jumbo about nobodies and heartless and hearts! I thought it was somewhat disappointing that they removed the platforming in KH2. It was honestly kind of fun trying to find all the treasure chests in the first game.
  12. Friends? Popularity? That's a good one! Seriously, you're cracking me up! I've only had one person who I could call a friend; someone who I felt comfortable with calling, visiting, etc, everyone else I could only categorize as acquaintances. However, because of some recent happenings I've been distancing myself from him. It's not a big deal, really. I just don't have any friends, and I've never really had or made any. Sure, there are a few who I could consider acquaintances, but they're not friends, y'know? It's not that I was rude - really, you could say I was too polite and form
  13. The two random oc's from the third picture were intended to be an odd couple of sorts, with the mare (left) playing the dominant role and the colt (right) more submissive and gentle/feminine. He loves her for her strong and responsible nature, and she for his kindness and entirely accepting (if a little naive) attitude, aspects that the other tends to lack in, respectively. I guess you could say she wears the pants in the relationship... huehue Anyway, it was only drawn in pencil, and was a pain to clean up what with all the rough sketch lines and smudging. I could've drawn her ear low
  14. Thanks! I kind of feel the opposite about the Cheerilee and Twilight drawing - that they're the least expressive of the batch. Maybe it'd look more expressive to me if I'd drawn some downward-slanting eyebrows? I really liked drawing her hair, though, and I had a hard time trying to decide how to separate her excessive accessories from the rest of her body. It was fun!
  15. Thanks for commenting! I try to be very careful when I ink, but even then my shakey hands can get the best of me. I don't really know what I'm doing yet when it comes to inking (besides outlining everything), but I want to balance it with pencil shading, to give the impression of color. I wouldn't have to worry about that if I colored it in a digital program, but then I'd have to learn about color palettes/etc and relearn how to draw with a tablet! Oh, and that bikini Twilight... I didn't do a rear-view drawing or anything... nope. XD I've been in an art streak for the last tw
  16. Just some drawings/doodles I've made within the last week. I only felt that the first two were necessary to outline in pen (more like I was too lazy to outline the rest), the others are only in pencil. Speaking of pencils, my scanner has the hardest time picking them up; I literally have to lightly scratch the led on the paper for it to show up. I really dislike how much empty space there is in these drawings (mostly in the ponies), and I feel like me adding clothing only serves as a crutch for the lack of detail. The Cheerilee drawing is my favorite out of the bunch, just because there's
  17. I can't stop, I'm too busy looking for an octagon.
  18. My favorite has to be from the Baby Cakes episode, when Pinkie Pie makes a beard out of the bath bubbles. The smile she makes is just so unique, and I can't help but smile myself when I see it.
  19. I originally intended Lethal to have a pony form, but poor and awkward design choices deterred me from keeping her that way; her pony form went through quite a few drastic changes, while her human form's remained relatively similar, plus it's generally easier for me to visualize a human-like form for some reason. But I guess that still makes me guilty of wanting a pony buddy, huh? Hey there, Leo! How are you and crazitaco doing?
  20. For the last month or two I've been doing exactly this, drawing (nearly) every day just for the sake of relaxing and personal satisfaction, and I've definitely improved since I began, to the point where I don't entirely loathe what I draw. You'll surely improve too, whether it's over the course of weeks, months or years, so don't give up. I don't think you should force yourself to draw every day, though; maybe you could make a habit of looking for inspiration on a daily basis. For example, you could find an OC that strikes your fancy, draw it, and PM it to the owner as a gift!
