Sky brush Streaming by Baron-Engel

 Today 6/9/18 at 5:30pm Pacific I'm streaming once again on Picarto Picarto Icon  .  As I mentioned in an earlier post this week I will be opening up a  MLP Art Set stream Saturday 6/9/18
Last weekend my wife as a joke got me this My Little Pony art set. Well unboxing videos are popular, and so this Saturday 6/9/18 starting at 5:30pm Pacific I will be breaking the plastic security strap on this art set and then will attempt create artwork with it on my Picarto Picarto Icon  stream.  I will have had no chance to look at or practice with any of the materials in the set. They say it's a poor craftsman who blames his tools. Let's see if I regret making that last statement this Saturday.



I hope you like what you see. Please help make more art like this possible by supporting me at Patreon Patreon (2017, square) Icon mini 
  live on the air and will using it this evening to create art with it. This is either going to be amazing, or......

Hunter in the Moonlight by Baron-Engel

During my last Picarto Picarto Icon stream several people expressed interest in what playlists I listen to when drawing or associate with a particular dreamscape. So I said I'd start posting them. Originally I thought I'd post my entire Equestria playlist, but then I realized it had 62 tracks in it. So instead I will post in segments associated with either certain characters or just the general world.  These are the tracks associated with Applebloom. These tracks are not literally about her, but if you were going to make a big budget action movie about her they might be in the background.

  Warning. Some of the songs are associated with events that have not yet been posted in the MLP Dreamscape folder yet:

1.   Dokken- Dream Warriors [link]
2.   Beekeepers-Dark Ascending [link]
3.   Soundgarden-Fell on Black Days [link]
4.   Blue Oyster Cult-Veteran of the Psychic Wars [link]
5.   Blue Oyster Cult-Don't fear the Reaper [link]
6.   Shinedown- Cut the Cord [link]
7. Disturbed- Indestructible [link]
8.   Metallica- Enter Sandman [link]
9.   Ozzy Osbourne- Shot in the Dark [link]
10. Rammstein- Engel [link]
11. Godsmack- Voodoo [link]
12. Rammstein- Ich Will [link]
13. Zack Hemsey- Mind Heist [link] 
14. Hans Zimmer- Fear will Find You [link]

Edit.  Oops I forgot one track

15. Kongos- Come with me now [link]

I will post more Equestria dreamscape related playlists in the future.

I thought this concept was understood by most folks, but in light of things that have happened over the years on my DA page and what I have observed on other DA members pages I guess this is a topic that needs discussing. Note. These are the guidelines I follow on DA and other social media. I am not an employee of Deviant Art. Also no one has died and made me god. These are just some common sense guidelines I have learned over the years.

 

Comments on DA should be used for:


1. Showing your support for a creator by offering encouragement and positive feedback about the work they've posted.

 

2. Offering constructive criticism related to the posting. Although I often recommend contacting the creator first to see if they want your feedback in the first place. Often if they do they will have included the option for you to do a critique which they can review before allowing its public viewing, or they may ask that you send a note instead of you making a public comment.

 

3. Asking questions relative to the piece that has been posted. Or are connected to the creator in some fashion, and are of topics that are SFW in nature.


Comments on DA should not be used for:


1. Showing disrespect to a creator by making insults about the work or the creator that has posted it. Hint. If you don't like a creator's work then don't follow them or look at their stuff.

 

2. Offering criticism that is not related to the posting and is not constructive in nature. Trolls don't need anymore platforms than they already have.

 

3. Asking questions completely unrelated to the posting, or making comments that are not SFW and might be considered harassment.

 

4. The comments section is not where you post spam ads, or try to hijack the page to promote your own work. This includes posting your 1,400+ word fanfic in the comment section. Then dropping a statement at the end of your supposed "comment" that you expect the creator to do something with it like create art, stories, etc. related to your posting.

 

5. Don't insist a creator has to make changes to a posting because you think they've made a mistake. "You chose the wrong color for that, or that's not how I think it should look like that. Change it." Unless you've commissioned the creator to create this work, or they are doing work related to your own creations/properties, and you've given them permission to do it, you have no say.

 

    Unless the creator is deliberately posting or saying slanderous, threatening statements about you, or they are violating the Terms of Service on DA you don't get the right to demand they change it.

 

6. If I creator decides to hide your comment you don't have the right to insist they unblock it. Their DA page is their own turf.
