    1. @nerthos I miss all the old guys

      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:35:14 UTC from web
      1. @abigpony We all do. So many cool people.

        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:37:34 UTC from web
        1. @nerthos They're better off without us. Woe is RDN.

          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:38:30 UTC from web
          1. @abigpony True, sadly. They made things so fun, though.

            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:41:09 UTC from web
            1. @nerthos I miss the days of zark, loak, ponymac, all the people of those times. It was good times.

              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:44:34 UTC from web
              1. @abigpony what were they like? They sound cool

                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:48:38 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                1. @pony zark was random, bigponymac was talented, loak had a silly obsession with balloons. They were all just generally cool, nice, down-to-earth people.

                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:49:57 UTC from web
                  1. @abigpony I'm still here you know. I just lurk.

                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:50:37 UTC from web
                    1. @bigponymac i refuse to believe you do it often at all. I think it's an occasional thing. Where's the fun in lurking anyway?

                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:51:45 UTC from web
                      1. @abigpony I come here a few times a day. I just jump into conversations that interest me or when I feel the need to respond to something. Most of the time I can't devote any time to keeping up with conversations here. Other times I'm on skype with Zark and others.

                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:56:20 UTC from web
                        1. @bigponymac I figure y'all still talk. Fair enough. Do as you like.

                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:57:12 UTC from web
                          1. @abigpony Well, we did meet each other at Bronycon so we do talk to each other frequently.

                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:58:24 UTC from web
                            1. @bigponymac yeah, that's a good thing. We've met twice and we never talk outside of them.

                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:00:45 UTC from web
                              1. @abigpony Really?

                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:01:58 UTC from web
                                1. @bigponymac Yeah. No bronies talk to me consistently. It's whatever, though.

                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:04:00 UTC from web
                                  1. @abigpony :C

                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:04:25 UTC from web
                                    1. @bigponymac yarr harr, yarr harr, a lonely life for me

                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:08:21 UTC from web
                                      1. @abigpony :< To be fair, Zark's the only one I talk to on a regular basis. Some of the others are on Skype but its seldom that they get a chance to get on.

                                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:11:07 UTC from web
                                        1. @bigponymac busy people. Gettin things done.

                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:11:38 UTC from web
                                          1. @abigpony Yeah, especially Pinkiederp. She's been super busy with school and stuff.

                                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:12:43 UTC from web
                                            1. @bigponymac yeah, i just see her posts on facebook.

                                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:16:02 UTC from web
                                              1. @abigpony Crazy stuff, but she's very passionate about it and it's awesome to see her follow her dreams.

                                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:21:27 UTC from web
                                                1. @bigponymac Guess so. I don't see many posts about it from her. You really should post that animation you made, though. No matter how bad it is.

                                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:24:07 UTC from web
                                                  1. @abigpony Yeah, no. It's pretty bad. My drawing abilities and style are completely different now than they were when I made it. It makes me cringe when I look at it.

                                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:29:41 UTC from web
                                                    1. @bigponymac C'mon, man. I submit worse on a daily basis. Don't be ashamed of your own creations.

                                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:31:12 UTC from web
                                                      1. @abigpony Every artist has those projects or scraps that they'll never want to see the light of day. My animation is one of mine. I did however make an illustrated story that I never put up.

                                                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:34:11 UTC from web
                                                        1. @bigponymac Post all your stuff. Never be ashamed of your work. They're all steps in your life so you can at elast signify your own progress.

                                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:35:23 UTC from web
                                                          1. @abigpony I don't think an artist should have to post EVERYTHING. There are some things that need to be kept hidden and used as a personal learning experience.

                                                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:37:49 UTC from web
                                                            1. @bigponymac But why not post it? You're showing the world that you're progressing. Some people may like it. The way I see it is as long as it's complete, it should be posted to a source with standards you believe it matches.

                                                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:41:14 UTC from web
                                                              1. @abigpony But the completed projects I'm withholding are not up to my personal standards. They have to reach a certain quality or sense of completeness before I decide to show it off. I don't want to display anything unless I know I put every ounce of effort and my ability possible into it.

                                                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:46:58 UTC from web
                                                                1. @bigponymac I'd continue trying to convince you, but I sadly understand where you're coming from and shall respect your personal standards.

                                                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:49:20 UTC from web
                                                                  1. @abigpony Thanks. It's just that I have a quality over quantity mindset.

                                                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:54:10 UTC from web

                                                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:56:09 UTC from web
                                        2. @bigponymac Y U NO TALK TO ME

                                          1. @moonprincess Y U NO TALK TO MEEE?

                                            1. @bigponymac I NEVER FIND YOU

                                              1. @moonprincess WHERE DO YOU LOOK?

                                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:14:41 UTC from web
                                                1. @bigponymac ERRYWHERE

                                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:15:34 UTC from web
                                                  1. @moonprincess I'M ALWAYS ON DA, TUMBLR, AND SKYPE. I JUST LURK HERE.

                                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:16:17 UTC from web
                    2. @bigponymac that animated clip with Luna and Celestia gaming was yours? I love that clip. x3

                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:54:36 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                      1. @pony It wasn't mine. There was a lot of misinformation going on. lol

                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:57:12 UTC from web
                        1. @bigponymac oh ok! ^_^

                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:58:21 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                  2. @abigpony Yeah I only met Bicponymac, wish I found this earlier.

                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:51:31 UTC from web
                    1. @noirbatch yeah, they all moved on to a skype chat. I think they all still talk in their little group.

                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:52:28 UTC from web
                      1. @abigpony Well that is nice they keep in touch.

                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:53:02 UTC from web
                        1. @noirbatch Yeah, I guess so.

                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:53:31 UTC from web
                          1. @abigpony Well how are you doing friend?

                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:53:51 UTC from web
                            1. @noirbatch Eh. Been really down the past day or two and I can't seem to apply for college here because lack of attention span. Could always be worse, though. How about yourself?

                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:55:37 UTC from web
                              1. @abigpony I am doing pretty well thank you. Where are you thinking about applying to?

                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 07:58:22 UTC from web
                                1. @noirbatch Goldenwest Community College. Art classes. The process to sign up is just so long it's annoying.

                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:00:04 UTC from web
                                  1. @abigpony Colleges are always annoying, mine had to be done in triplicate before I could apply.

                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:01:00 UTC from web
                                    1. @noirbatch Ooch, what a nuisance. That would kill me.

                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:10:31 UTC from web
                                      1. @abigpony Oh yeah, but hey you got this. Knock it out and be done with it. So you can start sooner rather than later.

                                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:11:51 UTC from web
                                        1. @noirbatch I'm stuck on the last question. I want to transfer to an art school sooner than later, but at the same time I'd like to go through a good, solid school curriculum. It's racking my mind.

                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:14:14 UTC from web
                                          1. @abigpony Well are you doing your basics at this current college?

                                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:15:44 UTC from web
                                            1. @noirbatch Well I either sign up for 4 years or I sign up for certain classes. I did not sign up for the basics. I just applied for the most basic art classes so I build a base so i don't get TOO MUCH overlap once I move on to an art school.

                                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:17:13 UTC from web
                                              1. @abigpony Oh I see, well if you are able to transfer credits to the one you want to go to... Well I would take that route for more structure.

                                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:18:34 UTC from web
                                                1. @noirbatch That's the thing is that the art school won't tell me if the classes transfer or not and the school covers the basics themselves. Even if these starter art classes I'll be taking at community don't transfer or whatever, I'm covered once I go there.

                                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:20:38 UTC from web
                                                  1. @abigpony Well that is good, I guess it is a matter of your preference.

                                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:21:25 UTC from web
                                                    1. @noirbatch I guess. Don't really care either way right now.

                                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:24:30 UTC from web
                                                      1. @abigpony Well then finish this term, quarter, semester, or whatever it is (colleges are weird), and figure out then. I mean you have all the time in the world.

                                                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:25:37 UTC from web
                                                        1. @noirbatch yeah, we'll see. I really just wanna get to the art school ASAP, but lack a proper portfolio.

                                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:26:33 UTC from web
                                                          1. @abigpony Get crackin on that..... Crap I realized I need to do that for my internship, thank you for reminding me.

                                                            1. @noirbatch My attention span doesn't allow me to work on it enough.

                                                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:31:38 UTC from web
                                                              1. @abigpony I know that feeling all too well friend.

                                                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:33:30 UTC from web
                                                                1. @noirbatch At least you get stuff done.

                                                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:35:45 UTC from web
                                                                  1. @abigpony Nothing that I work on for a while. Most of the stuff I post are done in one day out of boredom.

                                                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:38:28 UTC from web
                                                                    1. @noirbatch Exactly. I can't focus on something for more than 10 minutes.

                                                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:39:41 UTC from web
                                                                      1. @abigpony I do that from time to time. I have faith in you. You will get this grapes done.

                                                                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:41:04 UTC from web
                                                                        1. @noirbatch nahway

                                                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:41:22 UTC from web
                                                                          1. @abigpony Get that positive "I can do it!" Mentality and you can at least focus for 20min.

                                                                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:42:17 UTC from web
                                                                            1. @noirbatch Every now and then I'll get caught up in work, but I never get much done even then. I'm always stuck in the "glass half-empty" mentality.

                                                                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:45:05 UTC from web
                                                                              1. @abigpony If you don't want to picture it half full, just drink the damn water in the glass. Seems to work a lot.

                                                                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:46:04 UTC from web
                                                                                1. @noirbatch Well then I have no water. There's no reason to work at that point. You have nothing to work on.

                                                                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:46:47 UTC from web
                                                                                  1. @abigpony Well each project is the water in the glass. I meant get it done, and you will feel better than just staring at the glass wondering if it is half full or empty.

                                                                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:51:12 UTC from web
                                                                                    1. @noirbatch I see what you mean, I just can't because that's just what I do.

                                                                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:54:16 UTC from web
                                                                                      1. @abigpony Can't is not in my dictionary. You will get the motivation and decide to get it done. Just what I believe.

                                                                                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 08:55:44 UTC from web
                                                                                        1. @noirbatch I wish I could think like that.

                                                                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:00:33 UTC from web
                                                                                          1. @abigpony No need to wish, just do friend.

                                                                                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:01:04 UTC from web
                                                                                            1. @noirbatch Easier said than done.

                                                                                              Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:02:23 UTC from web
                                                                                              1. @abigpony True, but all it takes is one step. Plus nice avatar change.

                                                                                                Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:03:35 UTC from web
                                                                                                1. @noirbatch bad mood, so I figured a happier avatar would be better. I don't even know how I would go about being more productive and stuff.

                                                                                                  Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:08:29 UTC from web
                                                                                                  1. @abigpony Well awesome artwork there, and you seem to know what you are doing with what you want. So just start finishing projects.

                                                                                                    Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:11:05 UTC from web
                                                                                                    1. @noirbatch again, easier said than done.

                                                                                                      Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:12:44 UTC from web
                                                                                                      1. @abigpony Again, all it takes is one action. Just sit down and get to work. All I am saying. You can sit there and say I should get it done, but in the time you spend thinking about it you could be done with one project. Sorry for the rant, I tend to do this a lot. From what I can tell (I have never seen your work) You have your head on straight when it comes to art. You are the only one here who gives me constructive criticism. It is intelligent, and concise. I am just saying, if you put some effort towards it. You will have a damn good portfolio.

                                                                                                        Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:20:17 UTC from web
                                                                                                        1. @noirbatch I said "I'm just saying" a lot in that paragraph....

                                                                                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:21:53 UTC from web
                                                                                                        2. @noirbatch But sitting down for months to complete things is haaaaard. Thanks for trying to help motivate me I suppose. I'll try starting right now.

                                                                                                          Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:21:57 UTC from web

                                                                                                            Wednesday, 01-Aug-12 09:24:35 UTC from web
