Curiosities: Unwatching

Sun May 27, 2018, 6:31 PM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
I get bored, I think, and a journal appears.

Tonight's theme: What are the reasons you might unwatch an artist  on Deviantart?

My personal ones:
- No longer interested. 
I usually define this as "i have seen their artwork come through my message center
a lot but have no desire to comment or engage due to one factor or another." I rarely
unwatch due to a content shift, unless I am very uninterested in the new content
(for example: if I followed someone for their horse art and they started drawing
inflation porn)

- Spam.
There have been very few occasions that I consciously unwatched someone due
to what I would call "spam".  But if I have to delete the same adoptable or 
sale journal daily, and this is a daily or hourly occurance, I tend to unwatch. 
I understand the struggle of getting your art out there and needing to sell,
but I don't think daily pushing the same product to your watchers (unless you gain
100's of new watchers daily) is doing you any favvors. 

- Deviantart.
90% of the times I've "unwatched" someone, I didn't know it. DA did it.
And then I had to embarrassingly go back and rewatch like a chump.



Please recommend an artist for me to watch, and what you love most about their art!

EquusBallator Fun Times!

Thu Apr 12, 2018, 9:57 AM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
HELLO lovely people!!!
For the first time since spring officially started it's actually WARM and SUNNY!!
So to celebrate, since I'm stuck inside and can't enjoy the sunshine, I want to enjoy some pixel harse.

Here is the game, it's really simple:

SHOW ME:

Favorite Ballator you own
:
Favorite Ballator of someone else's:
Favorite Ballator mutation:
Did you complete the Egg hunt? How did it make you feel?
What are you most looking forward to right now? (doesn't have to be HARPG related, just want to know what people are excited about!)

Thanks for improving my day by showing me pretty ponies. 
I hope your day is going swell too!

Commissions Update, and more!

Sun Mar 18, 2018, 9:28 PM by Winzer:iconwinzer:

Commission Update;


I am looking to open commissions after I've finished the large YHH batch. Work is going steadily on them,
though a bit slower than I'd like - I might have been a bit ambitious going for so many horses on one canvas.
NO REGRETS, I'm having a great time and so grateful to everyone!

As a heads up, I will be raising prices, so my current pricing will NOT be accurate!
I take significant time and effort on my pieces (yes, even headshots!) and would like my pricing to reflect as such. 

If there is interest, I may host a waiting list. Typically I will only take 1-3 commissions
at at time, based on the type and workload that I have. I don't like to take over 1-2 weeks 
to complete commissions in general (unless the piece called for it, like a full illustration with multiple
characters as an example may take longer) and won't take payment on commissions until I am
sure that I can complete the work within that time frame. 

I'd also like to know if there is anything that people are looking to see from me that is not currently offered!
Keep in mind that I don't do the following:

Chibis/"Pagedolls": I can never find the right style, though may be open to an experimental type!
Pixels: I'm not good at them and I don't believe I could deliver a quality product. 
Humans: Again, I do not draw them enough to be comfortable or feel comfortable with someone paying me for this.
I am considering opening some "experimental anthro" commissions though, as this is something I would like to practice.
Sketches/Lineart: I don't often do these as I prefer to work a piece to completion. I like to be proud of my work, and don't enjoy
working on things that look very unfinished which often leads to me to doing more work than it is worth as the expectation
is for these types of commissions to be cheaper. These types of commissions would be open on an "in-stream exclusive" basis.


Featured;


And enough of that! Here are some top notch artworks that you all should look at - I don't post nearly enough
journals featuring art as I should, so...go look at all this gorgeous work!! Commission these artists!!

January Encouragement: Resources

Thu Jan 11, 2018, 1:21 PM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
Stuck in a rut? Want to improve your art and don't know how? Feeling that start-of-the-year blues?

Well hoo boy do I have some resources for you! 
Check out this rad as fuck status for some support and inspiration:


Next get some fuckin hella great advice from this tutorial: 


Next up, here are my favorites folders for tutorials and stock photos I have used and collected over the years, many of which have helped me immensely: 
Tutorials
Stock

General advice: Go to streams, reach out to your fellow artists. If there is anything I can help with or advice I can offer personally, I will always do my best to help when I am able. Remember that growth is not a linear process and to use whatever resources are available to you that you are comfortable using. Don't let anyone tell you that you are learning "wrong" or "cheating". On that note also, give credit where credit is due when using your resources. Do not copy other artists art or trace their hard work - you will only end up making their mistakes, and no one likes an art thief.

Go give OwlHive a watch, where the Hive will be 
posting Let's Discuss and General Tips & Advice journals to help us all as a community be the biggest, brightest versions of ourselves. ((Also Horse Court and Equus Curia as our project progresses))

If you have any personal favorite resources, please share them! I'd love to add them to my personal repertoire, share with others, and also include them in a larger compilation journal that I'll be writing up in the near future! 

Please feel free to share experiences, vent, offer opinions or anything else you'd like to see discussed as a community!

New Years

Wed Jan 3, 2018, 8:51 AM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
Sitting here thinking about the new year. I'm not a big one for "resolutions", or
believing that we'll all magically be better versions of ourselves because it's a 
different year now according to the Illusion of Time. There are a few things on
my mind that I have as goals for myself, and have for awhile, so I figured this
was a decent enough place to write them down and share with the class. 

Personal Goals: 
Pastel Pink Star Bullet Set aside more time to read. I've gotten through re-reading the first
4 Harry Potters, I'd like to finish up the series and read something 
NEW! (Hello, all the books I have gathering dust on my shelves!)

Pastel Pink Star Bullet Get my record play working. It's been sitting, functionless, for over a year.
I miss listening to my vinyl. Maybe I'll even learn something in the process
of setting it up.

Pastel Pink Star Bullet Write down at least a portion of Eitr, Jorg and Ves's story. 

Pastel Pink Star Bullet Branch out a bit into the RP world. Actually submit a Starborn Alignment
application this year!

Pastel Pink Star Bullet Time management and organizational improvement, overall. 
Keeping on top of things instead of letting them pile up, doing 
little bits with the time I have available and spreading out the projects
I have to work on.

Pastel Pink Star Bullet Take one commission a month.

Pastel Pink Star Bullet Feature more art. Comment on more art. Write up all those community
discussions journals that OwlHive has thought of and post them.

Pastel Pink Star Bullet Watch more new shows and movies rather than just watching the same
comforting favorites over and over (as much as I love doing that...)


So what about you? What are you personal goals? They don't have to be resolutions, but I'm 
sure we all have things that we want to work on about ourselves. Share with me, I'd love to hear them!

Boucle Unicorn Clear-Out Sale: CLOSED

Sun Dec 17, 2017, 11:03 AM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
I'm simply not interested in the breed anymore, and figure that these kids can go 
to new homes to get cared for, since they certainly won't be doing anything with me. 

As I have no idea what the market is like or what folks are looking for, everyone is up for 
general offer. Very loose guidelines:

Offer
tick  Points Pink Points 
tick  USD PayPal bullet 
tick  Art*
tick EquusBallator slots/horses/items
tick Drakehest slots/horses/items

Do Not Offer:
x Anything Boucle related (slots, horses, etc.) 
I am no longer interested in the breed as a whole
and will have no purpose for anything breed specific!

x  Anything for other HARPG or ARPG breeds.
I am not interested in joining any other breeds.

*Keep in mind that art will be done of my EquusBallator 's, so if you are uncomfortable
or unable to draw this breed please do not offer art payments!
*Art payments should be at least started with a WIP sent to me within a week.



ALL GONE!!
Thanks so much everyone!!

Pardon my lack of organization. I've fallen into such disarray with the group I'll have to
dig up some archived information if these guys sell.

Tablet Opinions!

Sun Nov 19, 2017, 4:28 PM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
So, long and short.

My tablet is great. I love it to death. But it's been a bit fucky, and I don't want to wait until it's officially on its deathbed to get a new one.
I've been admiring/longing/pining for a Cintiq for as long as I can remember, and I'm in the position to be able to get one with some financial assistance.

I'm looking for opinions! I want to make it clear - I am only looking into getting a Cintiq. I know there are other brands. I know they are cheaper, and I know they might be of comparable quality. I appreciate the input here - but I am looking into Cintiqs specifically! 

I am really terrible with specs, and what the benefits of each product is. The ones I am looking the most into are:
13" HD

and

22" HD

There are touch options, but it increases the price signifigantly, and I'm not entirely sure what the benefit would be or if that is an option that I would benefit from personally, so if anyone has experience or feedback to offer, I would be super grateful!

I've never really looked into this expensive of an investment before, but my tablet has served me well for the past 7 years, and before that my little bamboo was a hard worker too. 

Thanks for all of your help!

BAYWATCH: RESULTS

Sun Sep 24, 2017, 4:48 PM by Winzer:iconwinzer:


for starters...



A cool September breeze rolled through, marking the end of summer. The swimsuits would have to be packed away for another year, all the pools have been drained and covered, the last beach goers have traded in their trunks for hoodies. Pumpkin Spice reigns supreme across the land, and soon everyone will have Jack-o-Lanterns and costumes. Time marches on. It was a perfect summer, everyone had a lot of fun, and made some new friends along the way! Frank is happy to retire his lifeguard position for the season.

Acquiring new horses at a rapid rate so it's time to see if I can rehome some of my oldies but goodies!
I am extremely hesitant on some of these kids, so here are some minor rules!


1. I am not keen to sell some of these kids, so please do not be
offended if I do not respond to your offer! There are some I am
more partial to than others. If you do not receive a response, it is not
personal. I'm putting this out here to see if there are homes for
these kiddos that might be better than I am!
2. Minimum offers prices are NOT first come first serve flat rate prices.
They are there to serve as a base price - meaning I will not
take less than the minimum price listed. Please do not offer
if you cannot meet the minimum. 
3. USD/Pink Points OFFERS. NO ART PAYMENTS. I apologize, but 
I have been burned on these too many times to offer them.
4. All slots must remain as is. Any slots to myself (that are unused) can be scrubbed.
5.  Please respond to the appropriate comment thread for offers!
6. A new reference image should be made, however these will still count as 
stats and nothing will be deleted from my gallery!

* * * 

None at the moment! Please check back later.

*Disclaimer: None of my other horses are for sale. Do not offer on them. It's rude! Thank you.*

What?? A Journal???

Wed Jul 19, 2017, 11:02 AM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
Hello there lovely folks! 

I have recently returned from vacation traipsing around Salem and Boston with Fade--Touched, it was amazing and flawless and I'm really sad that I have to go to work tomorrow.

Getting things back together around here! Apologies for delays, but I needed some time to clear my head and finally feel ready to take a deep breath and be a stronger part of the community again. I am sad i don't have the time to dedicate that I used to, but I'm going to give my best efforts to be more involved. I have a tendancy to take things personally and let them affect me strongly, so I am going to try to work on that as a personal goal.

Setting up a swimsuit competition that I hope to have up by the end of the day today!  Still trying to come to a decision if it should be open to several breeds or just EquusBallator, as EBs are what I know best and the prizes are geared towards that breed. 

I am trying desperately to catch up on replies and things owed. If anything is pressing feel free to send me a note or message me on skype/discord (contact info is on my front page) or if it is group related send a note to the EquusBallator group! 

I am thinking of opening up another Community Discussions journal, and if I am brave enough, I might even put some opinions into it (gasp!) 

ANYWAY just a small update journal! Hopefully will be working on art later tonight and will have some cool and exciting things!

Tell me something new that is going on in your life?

Community Discussions!

Sat May 27, 2017, 12:45 PM by Winzer:iconwinzer:
Hey there lovely fellows, it's been awhile since I've written a real journal. Figured it was a bit overdue!

I apologize for my slow response times lately. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed, and hence have decided to take a bit of a break and try to relieve some of the pressure while focusing on my mental health and enjoying art again. This of course does not apply to any commissions or designs I have on deck, those are being worked on as normal. 

I haven't been able to comment and fan over the art that comes through my inbox nearly as much as I'd like, and thus feel like I've lost touch with a lot of folks. It's a huge bummer and something I want to focus on again. 

Also going to try to bring some more positivity both for the health of my own soul and the community at large. There has been a lot of negativity spread around lately and I think we could all do with some cleansing and cheer.

I will still be around, and this isn't by any means a hiatus journal, just that I'm focusing on feeling better and not feeling guilty for taking some time to myself. Commissions are also closed for the time being. They will re-open when my current to-do list is finished and some more of my passion project is completed.

Okay, onto some fun stuff!

Tell me about yourself!

Spring Cleaning: Slot Checkups!

Sat Apr 29, 2017, 11:55 AM


It's springtime! 
I've done some spring cleaning on all my Ballators and in doing so figured I would run a slot checkup on everyone!


Bullet Pink I'm not rushing you to use your slot , simply checking up and reminding everyone of slots to my ponies they have!
Bullet Pink This is as much for my own organizational benefit as it is for yours! I know I've lost things even while trying hard to keep up.
Bullet Pink If you no longer want your slot(s) please let me know and I will remove them!
Bullet Pink If you would like to gift your slot away, that is also fine, but please let me know who it will be going to first! 
Bullet Pink If the slot has already been used, please link to the foal design! I require a tag on all foal designs to help me keep things organized and up to date, though I know sometimes tags don't work or notifications get lost.
Bullet Pink If I can help out in any way (finding a mate, designing a foal) feel free to ask me for assistance! I'm more than happy to help in any way I can.
Bullet Pink I will be performing these types of checks bi-annually! 
Bullet Pink The list has been alphabetized by username for your convenience :D
