Requests - Friends Only by SweetDuke No Commissions by SweetDuke No Point Commissions by SweetDuke Gifts - Friends Only by SweetDuke No Trades by SweetDuke Collaborations - Friends Only by SweetDuke


(Unless otherwise stated.)

In addition,

:bulletred:I will refuse to vector the following even for those who requests are open for (subject to change, usually for addition of characters):

:bulletred: Derpy Hooves You can work around this by requesting Raindrops
:bulletred: Rainbow Dash You can work around this by requesting Daring Do
:bulletred: Alicorn OCs
:bulletred: OCs associated with Alicorn OCs
:bulletred: Male OCs using the mare model / Female OCs using the stallion model
:bulletred: Complicated, embellished OCs
:bulletred: Eyesore OCs
(my judgment)
:bulletred: Mary Sue/Gary Stu OCs (also my judgment, just like everything that's too subjective)
:bulletred: Shipping (granted, people's interpretations of what is or isn't shipping may vary)
:bulletred: NSFW (I'd never upload any here anyway)

I personally don't see a problem with all this, since there are countless alternative artists who'd do all of it. What's one less going to do? Nothing, that's what.

:bulletgreen:What you should know about my dA and its uploads;:bulletgreen:

:bulletgreen: The featured character, Crescent Moon (aka; Papermoon), is not my OC, nor is he my "sh!tty Doctor Whooves pegasus recolor OC". He's a canon background pony in the show, one of several that were probably hastily made using other existing earth and unicorn ponies as templates for the Sonic Rainboom episode in Season 1. That is also to say he is not Doctor Whooves or "Doctor Moon" either, at least by me, although the two look similar.

:bulletyellow: 99% of the stuff here is traced or uses a reference of some type, usually from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic TV show, with the purpose of being a reusable resource, reference, or otherwise. Traces from anything else are only done with the permission of the original artist, and are usually not uploaded here, and are otherwise stated on deviations this applies to. Thus, I don't necessarily claim to be an artist. People just might not recognize what instances I trace from because I focus mostly on apathetic background characters not in the main cast, nor are big in the fandom, as opposed to easily-recognizable instances featuring main or popular characters.

:bulletyellow: Screencap references are linked with the exception of deviations that used several screencaps for a pose, a large amount was recycled, or traced from a completely different character, etc. In addition, screencaps are taken from the corresponding iTunes HD video where and when possible.

:bulletgreen: You might notice most of my vectors are stallions, or minor characters in general. I emphasize on these characters since I always figured that since the show is female-oriented, female characters (whether they are mares or fillies or minor or major characters) were always going to be well-covered by the fandom's army of vector artists. Granted, there are many stallions and colts that have their own share of popularity and reach, and mares and fillies that are more or less ignored in comparison. At the same time, there are going to be obscure characters that even I haven't covered; like everyone else, I have my own share of favorites and biases too. That said, there are some minor characters that the fandom in general loves moreso than even the main characters, so that's why you might see one of Twilight or Applejack here and there.

Personally, I just like to see stallion characters as something other than characters so uninteresting that artists feel the only way to make them worthwhile to the fandom is to draw porn of them or to sexually objectify, but that's just me. Other than that, when people make male OCs they usually take a mare and remove her eyelashes, claiming that "the stallion model is ugly" or "the stallion model is too limited" or "I want to look more feminine" or sometimes it's just an oversight, well, it's just several more reasons as to why I vector stallions that much more. Because to me, they seem to be shafted aside, if not that, then people only use them for shipping or unsavory stuff that isn't so open-arms as much as other things people tend to do.


:bulletred: You will not find edited/posed Double Rainboom/DHX-leaked/other puppets as "vectors" here in place of my usual uploads, and I don't have/know Adobe Flash or have any Adobe Products that aren't Photoshop, so even if I wanted to (which I don't), I can't. That said, I may reuse resources, but from my own past vectors, typically if parts are not seen in a reference image, cut off/heavily obscured or otherwise. That, or I trace from another image. I also try not to reuse poses too much, because most of you I assume don't like stock vectors after a while, right? If I reuse something from someone else, I'll usually cite it in an upload's description if I remember. The farthest I would use "official" resources such as DHX puppets or show assets used in Flash games would be for the RGB color codes for parts in order to be as accurate as can be in that fashion, or for vectoring over cutie marks that aren't so easily seen in the show, but this is all I can think of at this moment.

Everything else is aimed to be vectored/traced from scratch, with the aim of each vector being a bit neater and higher quality than the last, and to try out new things if necessary, instead of reusing the same resource (or someone else's) over and over. To me, progress is important, and easier to attain in great amounts by putting in the work and gaining experience. One could argue that it doesn't apply since I work off the show, but the show itself improves in quality as it progresses (whether you want to say visually or in writing is your call), and sometimes you just need to learn new things and get better to keep up.

On the subject of reused resources, sometimes I may feel I may annoy another user by mentioning them every time I credit them when I use a cutie mark, for instance, and have it appear in their inboxes each time. In these cases, I may vector my own personal resource of the same thing (off the show, of course) so that I don't have to do that. Beyond that...I'd much rather vector my own resources than to constantly reuse, recolor, and edit other people's stuff to make what I want.

:bulletorange: I do not intend on making :points: or otherwise off tracing the show for labor or otherwise (in the sense that others are more deserving of it than me). I do this for my own enjoyment and leisure.

:bulletyellow: I do not usually upload personal OCs to my gallery, as my work is concentrated on mostly canon characters. This is mostly for the protection of the OCs' creators (the other part is that I hate browsing through galleries of canon characters to see people's personal OCs/ponysonas all over the place); OCs are privately sent to the OC owner by other means, to which they can upload to their own gallery if they so wish. Credit in this case is optional. Personally, I'd prefer to be anonymous regarding OC vectors and don't want to have a reputation for vectoring people's OCs, and wouldn't like to be traced back to by others and swamped with requests. That said, I don't have an OC or ponysona; I'd much rather focus on or relate to obscure characters and give them attention rather than giving myself attention through self-insertion (at the same time, I wouldn't be able to design one that I'd be happy with).

:bulletgreen: SVG files used to be linked with almost every upload, but I had a problem with it being too easy to reuse, and I had a problem with people claiming edits as their own work or basically not crediting the original, mostly because they were being accepted into this big group I'm also in, despite rules saying it's forbidden, rather than the act of recoloring in itself. You can send a note asking for an SVG of something you like, otherwise, you can freely find SVGs for things like cutie marks, backgrounds, IDW comic vectors, or commonly-edited gag or meme images; stuff that's reused more often than other things I upload, unless otherwise stated.

:bulletgreen: I don't make bases, people make them from my stuff. If you want one, wait for someone else to make them. I don't really endorse them, but you can use them if you want. Just don't show me.


This goes without saying; I do not own any characters that I trace out of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic TV series. This is mostly for those of you who probably thought of accusing me of stealing these characters by tracing them out of the show, claiming that I own these characters, and/or originally created them. If you don't recognize a character, then chances are that's why I vectored them; because they are so obscure and unknown.

:bulletgreen:About me::bulletgreen:

What does having next to no social life outside of the internet and relatively easy college classes do to you? Seemingly infinite free time to make, ponder, and do stuff, for sure!

I didn't end up at a prestigious university because of...well, er, let's just stop right there :D? Instead, I'm attending my second year community college in San Francisco, California, with the same hope as everyone else of transferring out to somewhere worthwhile eventually. At the moment, I'm only taking courses in Math, English, Astronomy, and Anthropology. As I said, this to me just gives more leisure time than expected, proudly being socially awkward. Most people would probably find it boring. If anything though, it doesn't bother me...mostly because real-life social interactions feel like a burden and slow me down besides on top of being awkward.

If you want to know ethnic details or my heritage, both of my parents were Filipino. That's as far as any Filipino heritage reaches though...I wasn't raised under their native culture nor am I fluent in their languages. Just a guy with Filipino descent thrown into the American life.


I like making non-mainstream, underrepresented, and underrated stuff for the relative minority that might like it. This doesn't just apply to deviantart.

To me, making something of a insanely and wildly popular character, ship or anything to do with shipping or suggestive themes (in ways that aren't childish/cute jokes) would attract too much unwanted attention to myself and the deviation, and would attract a bunch of odd comments and people that aren't my type, and I don't want to associate myself with that kind of stuff. But really, I just don't like dealing with stupid people.

If something gives me hype, then I'll probably never make something like it again. If I vector something that hardly leaves the ground, then chances are I'll make something like it again. So, typically I'll vector something I know won't spread, because I'd rather have fun vectoring something and at the same time contributing to a fanbase that doesn't get enough love, rather than being concerned about self-image and fame, and have to deal with the setbacks that come with it.

I'd rather have a few fans that really appreciate and enjoy my stuff than have lots of fans that'd probably take my stuff for granted.

I don't consider myself an artist. Rather, I create vectors that I'd expect other, actual artists would use to create something much more worthwhile, and for fun. Though, it still greatly annoys me when someone traces, recolors, or edits a vector in a raster program and does it so poorly. Personally, I find editing the SVG of a vector much easier and that it gives better results, one could ask me for one for most vectors I've uploaded to do the same. I'd always appreciate some credit or association to whatever's made regardless, so that it's not like I'm only here to make vectors for you to butcher in your editing and claim as your own original work. I hope it goes without saying that I'm not taking credit for the vectors I do, or that this style is my own, and that instead I'm just vectoring off the show to express how much I like it.



I like men's and women's artistic gymnastics, ponies, video games, aviation, and railroading. For something more academic, I enjoy studying anything to do with biology and science. My current obsessions include Kohei Uchimura, Ksenia Afanasyeva, Soarin', and Thunderlane.

I read every comment I get, but I won't always respond to them, since it would be a bit too much. If I went out and said thanks to every compliment and whatnot, I feel it'd add lots of clutter on my deviations and profile =p. Regardless, you have my acknowledgement!

I cannot stress this enough. If you ask for a request and I've never met you before, or don't follow you, or don't have you listed under my friends here or know you on other sites (me being listed under your dA friends is completely different, it does not give you consideration for a request) I won't even bother responding back. Zero tolerance, no exceptions.
Interests
What can I say?  My dA profile needs something a little more positive as its featured/most recent journal. =p


I'll shamelessly plug my :facebook: page again since that's where I mostly posted pictures I took or statuses I made depending on the mood as the con was happening, just for some extra details only if interested.


What else can I say?

Well, it was a pleasure having a local con where I didn't have to travel far nor book a hotel, not that doing or not doing either dampens the experience of a con! :D  Maybe the only thing is that since I wasn't rooming at the hotel at this one, I had to go home a little earlier at night, since it wasn't me driving after all.  For instance, the Saturday concert ran until after 2 AM, but I left after the Sherclop Pones panel that night at around half before midnight.  (But to be honest, I probably wouldn't have gone to the concert anyway, since I'm not so much music-savvy or one for concerts, although that's just me.)

"Pony princess good, high school great!"


I mostly went to panels and bought stuff (er, didn't everyone? =p), but not so much socialize, well, unless playing with my 3DS with other people Saturday night counts (I think it does?). :P

Most of that stuff being for friends, I haven't went through it all and counted how much I spent, but I can safely say it's almost made me broke! Oops! 

As for the merch/con swag itself...as far as vectors were concerned, most of it was stuff I saw last year at Everfree Northwest (for instance, Soarin's new cutie mark was nowhere to be found), but that's okay, because there was lots of merch that was original art, which was nice!  As far as character choice, I've grown to expect the usual characters that are known, otherwise I'll just be disappointed all the time if I were to expect people to make merch of obscure background ponies all the time! (That's why I had these made which I wore to the con...if no one else will due to lack of demand/popularity, it helps to be able to have things made yourself!  Well, if you have money to burn...)



The con swag I got consisted of:
And of that, the coffee mug, travel mug, two coasters, 9 of the badges, and 29 of the buttons are for friends rather than for me. (Roughly $123 or so, I think, considering the discount on the buttons by buying in bulk, nowhere near as much as what went into the Charity auction by other more rich people x3).


So, what's next?


Well, I'm still planning on attending BronyCon this year (no Everfree as it stands for me, unfortunately).  I just hope I'll either have MORE money to spend or that I won't be as spend-y as I was here!


Ciao! :D
