Long OverdueLong Overdue
Hey guys. I know that this journal is long overdue. Shit on my end has been pretty bumpy recently, and so its been hard to keep up here on dA. Hopefully within the next couple weeks, things will have smoothed out and ill be able to get back on here, post some new stuff, and reply to all the wonderful comments. But ive said that before, so dont hold your breath. If you really need to get a hold of me, note me, or find search for me on facebook (Austin Pickrell). In good news though, the great Hameed just gave me a 12 month sub, and i cannot express how grateful I am. I mean, how fucking awesome is that? Answer: REALLY fucking awesome.
Thats all i got. I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope to talk to all of you old friends more, very soon.
Great new band. Very soft, indie feel with a phenomenal female singer. These guys are brand new, so only one song is up right now, but you guys should definitely check them out.
Help me learn Flash!Learning Flash
So yea, school is over for the summer and im not moving back home for a couple weeks, so i have A LOT of free time. so i decided to learn flash. if you guys have and tips, awesome tutorials, some action script presents, anything, i would appreciate it. assume i have never even opened flash in my life (which is almost true)
thanks in advanced!
Side note: im using cs3 so action script 2.0 or 3.0 is bueno
!!!! Thank you all so much on my second DD on !! Any DD is a great honor, but this one has a lot more meaning to me. Not only is it my first DD on a piece of my true art, but of all pieces, its on this one. AS said in the artists comments, this piece holds a HUGE meaning to me. God works in mysterious ways. And it has been a rough couple weeks, so this was just what i needed to help me stay on my feet. The feedback that ive gotten on this piece has been really fucking great, so many nice people saying nice things. So truly, thank you all s
Important: Times of Change, PriteeboyTimes of Change
My friends I have news. Again, life has decided there is no rest for me. Shit really hit the fan....again. But this time may be different, instead of driving me into the ground like over the summer, this may be my way out. My escape. My dream. There are big things in the works, things that require much attention and hard work. I have reached a point where life has to take priority, and so I will not be as active as usual. I have already stepped down from Space Age, and may be forced to take other steps to lighten my load as well. I will finish the collabs and requests I have right now, but unfortunately will not be looking for more until things calm down. Ill still be here often, checking my inbox a few times a day, but no big projects (other than the upcoming attrius and UA packs, which im almost done with anyway ) But here is a brand new feature, so enjoy it, and wish me luck on codename: "Roadtrip"
hint: its not actually a roadtrip.
The Modern Space Art Movement: Our time Is now.I have been a part of the space art community for almost three years now, taking up a large majority of my time in design. The people i have met and worked with have become great friends, and inspired me to levels I never imagined I would achieve. From learning from the greats to teaching the n00bs, collaborating with multiple clubs and crews, trying to do my part in dA's space community, I always feel at home. But recently I have discovered an entirely new part of the space art community. The modern space movement is now. Our time as space artists is now. We are the next generation. Join me in bonding with space artists of all ages and all mediums. Join me in being part of the movement. Join me is spreading our work, our vision, our worlds. This is OUR movement. And our time is now.
Space Age: Our Time, Our MovementSpace Age: Our Time, Our Movement
Calling All space artists. This is your time, this is YOUR movement: http://spaceagemagazine.ning.com/
"We believe the world had enough "Berlin walls" of separation between ideas and nations, sharing the same planet. We see that the recent climatic changes are forcing us to move into space sooner rather than later as "one people under the stars". We know this has been a dream of all visionaries and spacemen from before the two world wars of humanity, fought for food and territory--not just for gold and ideology. Starting with Jules Verne and ending (or rather continuing) with all of you, we have painted with words and colors this human dream of shifting from planetary to cosmic society. Yes, this is not only sci-fi, this is not only space art! Humanity is destined for the starts, and not for the dust. And certainly not for oblivion and self-obliteration! Whether you're accepting the ongoing paradigm shift or not, time isn't going to wait for us to f

This is your chance to become a part of the largest collection of fresh and awesome tutorials on deviantart. The collection will contain tutorials that have not been published yet, and that cover a wide area of arts. I want you to join this project if you think you can contribute with some good stuff.
The tutorial will be organized in a very interactive flash, sort of like the grand planet tutorial only the users will be able to view multiple tutorials at once, and to move them around as they see fit within the flashfile.
There will be 8 or so categories, and each category will have 2-3 different tutorials. These tutorials will be picked from the submissions to ensure quality.
The categories are as follows:
- Graphic Design
- Color theory
The dA section of the archive will include tutorials on dA. How to get around, tips and tricks and so on. This will be the smal

30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) ChallengeI originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, and since it seems to be popular I thought I'd challenge people here.

Pony Price ListGeneral Commission Info Hat Pricing FAQ
All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind. I start from my base pony price and add charges according to how difficult the character is to make. Design elements that add complexity such as difficult or multicolored manes, body markings, and modifications to the basic pattern will add cost. For a full and amus

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

The 30 Day Character Development Challenge~![Stole off someone's facebook]
1.) Describe your character's relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?
2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?
3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?
4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?
5.) What's your character's ranking on the KINSEY SCALE?
6.) Describe your character's happiest memory.
7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?
8.) Day of Favorites! What's your character's favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?
9.) Who does your character trust?
10.) Can you define a turning point in your character's life? Multiples are acceptable.
11.) Is there an animal you equate with your character?
