It did indeed. I just tried it out now and it works like a charm.

I am so blown away by this feature. This whole time I have been making eyes the hard way by cutting holes in the head shape and putting the eye behind the hole. This method was a pain in the ass because I could never get a perfect elliptical shape of the eye and it also meant I had to deal with a border color surrounding the eye.

This new method looks better and can be done easier.

So is there like a series of these pony tutorial video’s I can check out?

Erm, sorry about all the constant wall posts. What can we say? We all love talking to you. Consider yourself a people person.

Oh well, in regards to learning techniques I was just speaking from my own experience. I didn’t learn how to draw poni until I copied some poni images but that’s just me. There are other ways of doing it.

You might be a different learner who will pick up your own methods and that’s cool. You seem to have found your element in any case.

Oh yeah? Well I can tell what reference image you used! Hurts, doesn’t it?

Actually that wasn’t a negative. When I was vectoring the image I quite liked how you paid attention to all the various curves and strokes I used on my OC and replicated them accordingly. You want to start off copying others anyway. How you learned HTML by copying me is how you will learn art by copying Ivan and Muumi (or me again).

And yea, I echo Deadparrot. Inkscape is fantastic. I find it way easier to use than Photoshop

It’s the forum equivalent of hanging things on the fridge wall. Why not? :D

When it comes to learning how to draw, just doing it, then throwing your stuff out there no matter how terrible is essential so I’m encouraging that.

You drew Sweetie Belle quite accurately. I can tell you put a lot of love into her. I have to agree with Muumi that she looks adorable.

I also have to agree that you did make some mistakes on my OC but understandably my OC is harder to draw than Sweetie Belle (for one thing you only had one image as a reference. I can tell which image you used as well). Just remember that stallions are often drawn with broader snouts.

Have a fast dirty vector of your sketch

Alright, I demand an explanation!

I have analysed your Scootaloo vector (the first one) and I am left wondering how the hell you did those eyes.

I’m not talking about the shape and gradient, that’s no mystery to me. I mean the fact that:

A: The irises do not overextend beyond the whites. At first I thought you did this using the intersection tool but ungrouping the image revealed a complete, un-clipped circle that somehow trims itself to the border of the white when grouped. How did you manage that? What property are you using?

B: The left iris and pupil does not exist. It vanishes when I ungroup the image, only to magically re-appear when I group the whole thing. What the hell is this? Some kind of bug? How does that even work?

The rest of the image is pretty simple, just regular shapes. Although I’m guessing you using the calligraphy tool for some of them. I just want to know the method you used for the eyes. Tell me, tell me, tell me

Derp. How is apostrophe formed? How grammar get placement?

I don’t know why I subconsciously add extra punctuation where it is not needed. I honestly do not understand how or why that happens (Hey, there’s something for the Personal Flaws thread)

Anyway, if you are looking for ambient, relaxed, electro you could try asking opspe. I bet he has something for you in that department. The dude practically has everything for everyone and I used to go to him for music tips. Hell, he even introduced me to some of my favorites like State of Mind.

But when I need something that is calming and serene I often resort to Liquid with artists like B-Complex, Netsky or Kinetics. Might work for you too, who knows?

“lol dubstep is mainstream”

Funnily enough, yea. Skrillex and Deadmau5 especially. When their music starts playing regularly in hip-hop dance clubs without request…sorry, you ain’t underground no more

“Jamie Smith does a bunch of other stuff”

Ah, I get what you mean now. And that example you gave is definitely more similar to Dubstep. I liked that too. I turned my subwoofer up at the 2:40 mark and my windows began to shudder. Haha awesome! Oh gawd my ears, they hurt…

“My apologies if you actually like Skrillex;”

No need, I am not a Skrillex fan. You may be thinking of Dr.Meme or Quantum. I find Skrillex to be too much ridiculous noise and not enough of that atmosphere and depth which I crave so much. I totally agree with you. I’ll take Black Sun Empire over Skrill anyday.

“Anyways, lol electro=dubstep. That’s a bit of a stretch.”

It is. But that doesn’t stop stupidity. Believe me there are people out there who’s only impression of the electro genre’s is Dubstep because Dubstep is the only one that is actually mainstream. So they automatically assume that if it contains wubs or any electro sample then it must be Dubstep. Infuriating

“I guess you could confuse DnB with dubstep if you’re stupid”

Oh gawd, you have no idea how often that happens. It seems like in almost every DNB music video there is always some moron who says “Sweet Dubstep bro! Herp! Derp!”.

“it’s people like them that make me feel like an abject failure”

Hehehe, you’re self-loathing is so adorable

You edited that post 4 times, having trouble with the links? :D

Nice use of bass guitar in both those examples. 1:10 to 1:45 in Heart Skipped A Beat. Fantastic. Both examples are also very chill and relaxed and believe it or not I like liquid music as well as intense music.

I find it quite different from the example I linked you, as the XX invokes emotions of calm, serenity, joy and affection in just about all their songs. Rawthang, on the other hand, invokes emotions of haste, rage, distraught, anguish and destruction. In other words: The XX makes stuff that would be great for lying in a deckchair or having a romantic moment in front of the fireplace. Rawthang makes stuff for driving past the speed limit or fragging monsters with rocket launchers

To be honest I did think XX was a liquid style of Indie at first. There is an amount of electro but the use of guitars for both treble and bass (plus the vocals) threw me off.

“Post-dubstep” is confusing. I don’t see how it can be compared to dubstep at all. The style, instruments, pace and vocals used are all completely different. As a matter of fact, I’d say that the XX is the exact opposite of Skillex. If people are thinking it sounds like dubstep; I’m thinking that’s another case of people assuming (falsely) that electro = dubstep

I’d say the XX is something else. Electro, Soft rock, Alternative, liquid…I’ll just call it pleasant relaxing music for now.

“I do have more… intimate pics of him”

Wait, what do you mean by…oh dear lord, you have porn of him don’t you? How did you manage to get into his shower!? Does he know about this? Can I take a look?

“Anyways, might make a Jamie pony sometime this week”

Turns out he has not been ponified yet. This could be your chance to be the first an ponifying a KYM emblem. I already ponified the Cheeto but I’ll leave Jamie to you

“Also, you should check out the xx, if you haven’t already”

Hmm, looking at the examples on your profile; you are correct that the style they use is not what I normally listen to. You know I’m into terrifyingly deep, intense and atmospheric stuff that’s extremely dangerous to people with heart conditions. But you mention heavy bass and ambiance; that is something that certainly gets my attention.

I don’t suppose you can direct me to their most bassilicious samples?

Oh nice background. And I see you had no trouble with fixed placement, excellent. When you mentioned a Jamie theme I was imagining a profile with Jamie pictures in every possible place. You managed to reflect what I was thinking

The text color was a good choice as it’s not too difficult to read among all those background colors but I’d darken the overlay just a tad more

I assume you created the background yourself. Is that a collage of your Jamie Stalking folder?

Commented on Twins the Serendipitous Serval's wall

My profile has Battlecruisers, screw your Zerg rush

To get the fixed background you add “fixed” after the background URL.

Or add “background-attachment: fixed;” if you like doing things the long way.

You might be copying from sites that are using older versions of HTML like 4.1 or CSS2. I’m strictly using

See all those horrified reactions this comment section is filled with? All those shocked statements. All that butthurt. All those hilarious image macro’s. The chaos and calamity filling this comment section. All of those things are exactly why people make things like this!

This fanfiction was made for the sole purpose of shocking people for the creators amusement and notoriety and look! It’s working! The writer got himself a KYM article for making this and he’s rustling everyone’s jimmies. I bet he’s really enjoying himself right now.
