Please refrain from leaving any "thanks for the fave" or similar comments, as they will be ignored and hidden. You're welcome in advance!
If you want to thank for watching or other things that's okay .
(Unless otherwise stated.)
In addition, I will refuse to vector the following even for those who requests are open for (subject to change, usually for addition of characters):
— Derpy Hooves You can work around this by requesting Raindrops
— Rainbow Dash You can work around this by requesting Daring Do
— Alicorn OCs
— Complicated, embellished OCs
— Eyesore OCs
— Mary Sue/Gary Stu OCs
(also my judgment)
~~What you should know about my dA and its uploads
— 99% of the stuff here is traced or uses a reference of some
type, with the purpose of being a reusable resource, thus, I don't necessarily claim to be an artist
— Screencap references are linked with the exception of deviations that used several screencaps for a pose, for instance
— Resources directly reused from others are linked in descriptions to the deviation as well as the user
— I do not intend on making
or otherwise off tracing the show for labor or otherwise (in the sense that others are more deserving of it than me
— SVG files are linked for you to make use of them, just credit/link back and don't claim it as your own if you use it just like I'm not claiming the stuff I trace as my own original work either
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.
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
? 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, Spanish, and Astronomy. As I said, this to me just gives more leisure time than expected, being socially awkward and all, which most people would find dreadfully boring. If anything though, it doesn't bother me...mostly because real-life social interactions feel like a burden besides being awkward.
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. 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; it's another reason Inkscape SVG files are attached with every upload for that purpose. 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 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 Doctor Whooves.
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 think it'd make me look like a sellout
. Regardless, you have my acknowledgement!
