The time has come to update the shipping chart.

I've been gathering the data for these for two years, and it's been a year since the last edition. Since I'm good with numbers but have no artistic talents whatsoever, I do like I did last time and ask /art/ for help.

The last chart, made by CiscoQL, is shown as the picture. He did a good job, but it's hard to fit in 72 characters and a crazy amount of ships on a single image. Since then, the number of characters has gone from 72 to 127 and the number of ships has gotten even crazier. I'm not sure if the new data can be made to fit in a single chart and not be a total clusterfuck.

If somepony feels they can make this chart and have it look good, then that's great. But either way I wanted to compile the data into more useful graphs. I'm a somewhat competent programmer, so I made a program to analyse the data and put it in fun tables - like listing the most common ships of the gayest characters.

But right now this is only a drab text document with a few tables. Nopony wants to read that, and that's where I'm asking for help. I'm asking for two things:
(1) Advice on what tables of information could be extracted from my data (from anypony).
(2) To make a chart and/or make the document visually interesting (preferably no more than one person at one thing).

Pffft. The characters I like to ship aren't on that list. Yet Winona is....Who ships Winona with a pony? I mean seriously.

Hello, everyone.

Some of you may remember a couple months back that we had a bit of a /fic/-/art/ collab competition. Well, it's take two now (take six for /fic/, but). For this event, art submissions open at Sun, 14 Oct 2012 12:00 UTC and close Fri, 19 Oct 2012 12:00 UTC—5 days later.

The special new edition to this event is the website. (Yeah, I, uh, wrote a whole website for handling the event for me. Call me lazy.)

For those out of the loop, the competition is quite simple: prompt → art → fic. Artists draw pictures, and then writers write stories to the pictures. You can get a more detailed explanation at the site's FAQ(which gives a perfect segue for me to dump the site links):

>And the fruit's never identified,
Indeed... I went with a Golden Apple because it appears in Greek mythology... among others

From Appletheosis:
Fluttershy: "And... what does power everlasting taste like? If you don’t mind me asking?"
Zaraturvara: "It’s basically like a watered-down strawberry, but crunchier. It’s technically a melon."

Funny thing... I noticed something in the story: zarat- is a term in Avestan (the standard language around Zoroastrian times) meaning "golden," and "ur" means "great" or "ultimate." I don't know what "vara" means, I'm pretty sure that Zaraturvara's name translates to something like "Golden Apple" or "Golden Fruit."

I reread the story, and in that light a few things took on a different meaning... like when Zara says: "One of these fruits—and only one—will grant you power everlasting." He may be referring to himself.

I don't exclusively draw ponies or really draw anything seriously very often at all. I don't really feel it's necessary to make a thread that gets bumped once in a blue moon that many will not even pay much heed to

You guys are more than welcome to check out my deviant art though">

Hey! I'm Wry Owl [Also unstableunicorn, Wry Pony)! I'd like to share some art and get some people who would be interested in giving me daily critiquing, when I upload art of course. I'm a digital artist - I don't only draw ponies, but some other things as well. So, if you'd like to check out my art, my deviant Art is . Pic is a drawing I recently made :)

#Traditional #Digital #OCs #Discussion #Event

I've had this idea playing in my head for a while.

Original OC characters competiting in a "Model" contest.
Each week there would be a new theme and each artists OC would be judged on how well they can portray the photo. With any and all specifications included!

Would anyone be interested?
>> No. 125492

This actually sounds like a fun idea! We're you thinking a theme is created and OCs are made, or moreover OCs thematically dressing up?
>> No. 125494
It might be tough designing a new OC each week to match a theme. But it can be done.

#Digital #Comics #Canon #OCs #Gallery #Taking requests #Taking commissions

Hello! Viwrastupr here, I art:

I'm looking to take commissions. I'm fast, responsive, have cheap options and I'm willing to change things until they're just right.

In the meantime I'll be taking sketch requests. The sketches can be upgraded to commissions at any time, so if you're not sure if you want a commission, ask for a sketch and we'll flesh things out.

You can find my official commissions chart here: and an interactive choose your commission chart here: The first link has the entire process bulleted out, but let me summarize:

You ask for commission, we discuss/clarify, I send you a sketch, we go back and forth till you approve, I finish, sending a thumbnail, you send money, I send the full work.

I accept either paypal Or bitcoin.

If you aren't busy as hell, could you maybe make this look good? I'm not an artist and it shows. The thing on the ponys eye is supposed to be somesort of bionic eye, and the pony is supposed to be a skull on an unicorn.

I've made a good handful of OC's... but only one of theme ever got a formal name, the others I always just have a name running through my head when I'm making them, and I give it to them until I can come up with a better name.
I never do

but... i suppose I gave this one my little sister's middle name!... so it does have a middle name! :D
