Critiques

by Evil-Nj

No matter how you format it, jarring POV shifts like this rarely work out. It's very distracting, and makes the story feel schizophreni...


You seem to have a problem with voice. The language is very strong and exaggerated in the beginning, but when you actually have the two...

I will happily critique your work even if you don't have premium membership. All you need to do is ask. ;)

The Man with no First Name
Due to the lazy attitude of the author, the boy was born into the fictional world with no first name. His parents never knew what to make of it, and would refer to him as whatever random name would strike their fancy at the time. Children would make fun of him when he was old enough to attend school, children with names like "Billy" or "Jack" or "Thomas", which weren't particularly original names, but nonetheless better than not having one at all.
The boy without a first name envied those children. Eventually, out of this envy grew jealousy, and this in turn became a seething hatred. As he grew into his teens, he rebelled against society as most teens do, but in a different way; by misnaming. Walking down streets, he would refer to them as alleys. Cats were dogs, boys were girls, up was down, opposites were setisoppo. Names, and by extension words, became meaningless.
Eventually the boy grew into a man, leaving his parents' home and going forth into the cold, named world. He worked at

The Promise
"I'm waiting for someone," she replied, giving off a faint smile.
I couldn't keep myself from asking her. Every day, I would go to school only to see her waiting by a near porch in the train station. On some days, she would stare blindly at the sky with her nonchalant expression, and on other days, she would only sit and wait patiently.
For some reason, it pained me to see her be seated on the porch expecting for something that might never come.
"Who're you waiting?" I asked out of curiosity on a sunny morning just before the train to my school arrives.
"It's a boy, why? Is it so odd to wait for boys nowadays?" she giggled. "Of course not, but it's kind of weird to see the same person waiting every day," I answered back.
She was beautiful with her flawless white skin, her shining gray eyes and her long straight hair, but deep in her melancholic eyes, I could senses sadness. Underneath the smile was a frown kept under.
"It's not that I'm crazy or anything, but we promised each other to

Troubles with the dead
Crossing my arms, I shifted a sigh leaning against the moss covered brick wall that surrounded my house. My gaze wondered along the ground as I made patterns in the dirt with the tip of my shoe, although I had done this nearly all my life I still haven't gotten use to it. Playing with a piece of my blonde hair; I looked back up at the young girl, no older then myself. Her deep red hair hung in tight curls around her face, her grey eyes filled with tears as she continued her story. She was just like any other teenage girl; the only difference is.... she's dead.
"And he didn't even say good bye he just left like that. I could live without him so I jumped the school roof-"

Book Bucket List

Lost in my imagination... by PixieRiotRandom Deviant - Stamp by cilen-chiiSo Many Books by LaPurr
Every once in a while, I hit the "Random Deviant" button and leave them a question on their wall: "If you were to recommend me one book I have to read before I die, what would it be?" Here are the results. Titles in strike-through are ones I've read, in italics ones in progress.

The 200 Must-Reads

I have taken the actually list of BBC's "The Big Read" (as opposed to the phoney list meme that's floating around on Facebook and elsewhere on the Internet), combined it with the Guardian's "Books You Can't Lives Without: The Top 100", and, after adding some classics and assorted must-reads, have created the ultimate book bucket list. These books are in no particular order of popularity, unlike the BBC and Guardian lists, and I have clumped some books together by their author where appropriate, making the list a little more navigable.

Journal Entry: Mon May 8, 2017, 1:35 PM

I'M BACK!

There have been a lot of major changes happening in my life since moving to New England, and it's taken a lot of time to get my bearings. I ended a long-standing relationship of 11 years, and recently started some new ones. My family looks a lot different now than it once did, and adjusting to that has taken up a lot of my energy. Things have finally settled down now, and I have a much clearer vision for my future. I just finished getting settled into a new place (again) and will be trying to get back into the swing of things very soon. Preschool will be ending next month, but I expect to have my kid in daycare over the summer. Assuming that works out, it should open up a lot of time for me to get back to work on everything still in my queue.


I know, it has been a painfully long time and I still have people waiting on their commissions (well over a year, for some of you!) I have not forgotten you, I have not lost your information, I still intend to complete every single obligation I have to you all and, as always, I am extremely grateful for your patience. If your contact/mailing information has changed since you last contacted me, please feel free to send me a note or email so I can update my information. If your patience has run out and you no longer want something you've been waiting on, I do have a limited ability to refund some commissions. I will do my best to get back to responding promptly to all my messages.

Again, commissions are currently CLOSED. Moreover, I have made a big decision about how I want to continue my work moving forward. Once I work through my backlog, I will ONLY be working through Patreon. Please check out my page to find out more about the perks of becoming a patron! I will only accept commissions from patrons, and I am considering selling only to patrons online. I will also be making a lot more one-of-a-kind pieces. In fact, my goal is to move away from making copies of my popular pieces entirely and make exclusively unique pieces. (If you don't already understand why I want to do this, please see Season 5, Episode 14... I really connected with Rarity in this episode ^_^;; )

I did not apply to any conventions this year, but you will still see me around a little. I will be attending Everfree Northwest, once again selling for BronyMom Tees. Come buy a shirt, or just say hello. I also found out MLP Fair will be in Providence this year, so I will most likely be going since I am so near, either for pleasure or business depending on how things are going around that time. I don't have any current plans to go to Bronycon, but I may go for pleasure anyway, since my sister recently moved to Baltimore and I'd like an excuse to visit.

Once again, thank you everyone for your patience, especially in this last year. It has been a very hectic time for me, and I really appreciate everyone's continued love and support. It would be no exaggeration to say that it has made all the difference in my life. You're amazing. Thank you.

In fact, my goal is to move away from making copies of my popular pieces entirely and make exclusively unique pieces. (If you don't already understand why I want to do this, please see Season 5, Episode 14... I really connected with Rarity in this episode ^_^;; )

I did not apply to any conventions this year, but you will still see me around a little. I will be attending Everfree Northwest, once again selling for BronyMom Tees. Come buy a shirt, or just say hello. I also found out MLP Fair will be in Providence this year, so I will most likely be going since I am so near, either for pleasure or business depending on how things are going around that time. I don't have any current plans to go to Bronycon, but I may go for pleasure anyway, since my sister recently moved to Baltimore and I'd like an excuse to visit.

Once again, thank you everyone for your patience, especially in this last year. It has been a very hectic time for me, and I really appreciate everyone's continued love and support. It would be no exaggeration to say that it has made all the difference in my life. You're amazing. Thank you.

Gardner Makes Series: Priscilla Candy Shop
This was one of the three MASSIVE 3-foot woodcuts I worked on as part of the Gardner Makes Series. This piece was the result of a full month of work volunteering at the workshop. The final posters were printed during a festival in Gardner, using a steamroller press technique on the street. It was a wonderful experiment that resulted in these gorgeous posters, commemorating the "Makers" of present-day Gardner, in this piece Priscilla Candy Shop. The other two, which I did not work on, commemorated Jandis & Sons (brickmakers) and Garlock Printing.

As Hasbro SHOULD have done 2
This project has been 5 years in the making, and has at last come to fruition. I originally began making the Mane 6 pets by modifying the pet figures that came with the Gen 4 Wave 1 MLP brushables.

As Hasbro SHOULD have done by Gryphyn-Bloodheart

Wanting to move toward a more efficient production of the pets, without having to utilize any more toys than I had to, I began making molds of my pets and casting them by hand in resin

Custom Gummy by Gryphyn-Bloodheart
Custom Opalescence Figure by Gryphyn-Bloodheart

Finding this process cumbersome and fickle, I then began collaborating with SerpCreations to design 3D printed pets for larger high-quality production. It took a couple years, but we finally completed the full set.

The full set debuted at Bronycon this year, and I still have at least a few of each pet available for sale.
Angel - $10
Gummy - $15
Opalescence - $15
Owlowiscious - $20
Tank - $20
Winona - $25
Full Set: $100
