My DeviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 12:11 PM


Years ago I started hearing about DeviantART in a Doctor Who forum in the fan art section. The mention of this site so much made me look into it. Seeing what the site could be used for I decided I needed a second place online to show my art. This gallery would show every thing of my art, not just works directly connected to my still running at the time, Buck Rogers in the 26th Century series.

A bunch of images started my account, any thing I felt made a good start to the gallery. I continued adding new art to the gallery here until I became homeless which lasted most of 2009. In the fall I returned to the site and continued adding. This time with an old computer given by a local mission I'd spent time at, using a new to me program named Paint Star, which to this day I still use normally now in combination to other software.

The old computer late in that year got replaced by a new one and much later on I got my first Bamboo Tablet. That's when my work here took a jump! The convenience of what I could do with that tablet and Corel Painter Essentials 4 which came with it, has lead me into making what I see as some wonderful digital art over the years. Besides that and Paint Star, other software titles have been joined into my computer tool box of fun.

But it's been more than just digital work I've shown to this site over time. Back when I made my account and to today, and even before using DA, I make traditional art projects. Sadly in the case of paintings, I can never seem to photograph them well :(. Crafts, that's a different matter, and I think those have always gotten on the site well :). One craft got reintroduced back into my life after having been basically missing for years. Making puppets. Rare over the years making them since my teens. I've made more in the last few years than any other time in my life.

Creature crafting is some thing I've been doing since before even being ten years old. I still remember making fake lizards from tissue, tape, and rocks, covered in marker drawn scales. That later lead to odd paper birds, tissue dragons, and even animating some of these fake creatures with my first camcorder. Back in 2011 I even joined DA's Film Community for wanting to present my small films better. These being not just animation, but also puppet shows, and FX work.

I do many kinds of art and refuse to ever limit that. I don't like the idea that I can be called predictable outside my comic work. Any thing in my opinion is game to be called art supplies, and I can't imagine working in only one style.

Being unpredictable I've noticed has kept watchers away. That bothers me but only a little. I truly love the friendships I have with those I can call good friends here. Wonderful people from all around the globe that I feel it's a shame I'll never see in person to face to face to talk to with most of them.

Since I think 2012 I've been trying to suggest helpful changes to this site and have tried a few times to be a CV to promote change and give better exposure for the many unnoticed members of this site. Trying to help others here and trying to incite change in the community is some thing I'm still trying to do to this day.

Please donate points :). This dirt poor kitty wants DA gooshy food :cweeks: :dalove:. .... Ok this has been up for a while and I can only guess no one gets the crack I'm making at an internet comic as to why I'd like points. "gooshy food" meaning stuff. I'd love to be able to buy a print, DA plushie, or even have a premium membership to this site :). The only points I have so far are from Llama trades and at the rate I'm going it will be DA's 20th anniversary by the time I'll be able to afford any thing aside from a bowtie or shades for my Llama.

You must be logged in to donate.

I just want to say I love your Past The Telescope story. It's nice to see a MLP fan comic that has a solid story, has good length, but at the same time isn't dark and grim, or have a mary sue marching about, like all the others seem to be.

Thank you so much for your kind words about the story :thanks:.
I've been an MLP fan for as far back as I can remember, and that goes all the way back to the dawn of the franchise. Fraggle Rock is another show I remember from way back. It wasn't hard for me to form a plot idea of throwing those two fandoms together. The plot was going to originally have a grim element in it, but I decided it would be best not to include some thing non-kid friendly into a story stemmed from kid oriented media.
This isn't the first MLP story I've written. There was a text or pose based, story written last year named "United" that used every generation of MLP in it but 3.5. Just a warning it's a little dark, but otherwise lighthearted.
As for truly dark and grim MLP stories ..I've only heard of those and am grateful not to have read any yet. Mainly the MLP fan fiction I read is that written by my boyfriend. I remember once he warned me to never read a story named "Cupcakes", which just knowing what I've been told of it, the story's idea is horrifying, and I think it's writer to be a total sicko. Haven't hear of any Mary Sue type of stories with MLP, but frankly knowing of their existence isn't a shock to me.
Now to an unrelated note. Thank you also for the watch and faves :thanks:.
I think I should warn you, Past the Telescope is not meant to be an on going comic series. Once the story is over I'll be working on a new comic to again run along side my series which has been running since 2011, "Light Bulbs". I hope knowing Past the Telescope eventually ending some point later isn't a turn off to you on watching me :(.

For the record I like G3. And ironically, Twinkle Wish Adventure did the unthinkable, as the final piece of G3.5 media, and gave the fillies FLAWS, instead of perfect little dolls. It's still a happy-happy blindly light-hearted world, but it's what makes it my favorite of the G3 media. (Except it doesn't have Minty!). 

Ironically, I wrote the most dark and grim setting I could for the G4 ponies . . . then I wrote an epic about it being TURNED into a happy go lucky smiles world! 

As long as Telescope is given a PROPER ending.

I'm ok with G3 it's just 3.5 I have a problem with. I saw one 3.5 cartoon and that was enough. As for 3.5 toys, I own a single one that came in a Goodwill grab bag with a few other different gen ponies. I joke on appearance she's brain damaged.

Telescope I think is going to go in one of two directions. I'm having fun working on it but still want to work on other comic projects, not counting Light Bulbs since that's always in the background. I figure the rescue starts and it's assumed things go swimmingly, or we see all the other ponies rescued too. Likely it will be the second idea.
