Having an excessive amount of gifs on your page is adorable, but people like me with really old computers have to deal with crashes and their screens freezing sometimes for hours. It's your page, you can do what you want, but if people like me have to deal with this sort of thing, that's a lot of people that will never look at your page.

Oceanblue-Art

Artist | Student | Varied
United States
Before you ask... oceanblue-art.deviantart.com/a… ...I did NOT intentionally steal ILoveKimPossibleALot's OC. I created Oceanblue back in 2012 (her original name was Helios, and her cutie mark was a sunflower,) before I even had a DeviantArt account and at least a year before I knew who ILoveKimPossibleALot was. And yes, I know they have a YouTube, but I created my OC at a time when I wasn't very active in the community and didn't watch any pony videos. When I created her, my favorite color was aqua and I had brown hair with highlights, so it felt obvious that I should make an OC with those colors. As far as I know, the colors (and sometimes the hair style when they decide to draw her with curly hair) are the only similarities between the characters. We have very different cutie marks and stories. I will not change Oceanblue and I don't expect ILoveKimPossibleALot to change their OC.

_And now for a few things about me_

I like:

Art (painting, drawing, design and fashion)
Writing (realistic fiction, short stories, creepypasta, nonfiction persuasive and social commentary) Sewing (clothing, quilting and plush toys)
General Crafting (jewelry and accessories, doll modification, sculpting, and tinkering)
Cosplay (character cosplay and historical)
History (the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Victorian and Edwardian Age, and the 50s and 60s)
Science (animals, marine biology, chemistry, medicine)
The Spanish language and culture (I've taken Spanish I in school and am still learning)

Favorite authors: Christopher Moore, Lloyd Alexander, Carl Hiaasen, George Orwell, C. S. Lewis
Favorite artists: Jasmine Beckett-Griffith, Andy Price, Yaya Han
Favorite movies: The Princess Bride; Monty Python's The Holy Grail; O Brother, Where Art Thou?; The Avengers films (including Iron Man and Captain America;) Finding Nemo, the Planet Earth documentaries, Brave, the Ghostbusters movies, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls
Favorite shows: My Little Pony, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Sherlock, Psych, Kitchen Nightmares, World's Dumbest, Bravest Warriors (though I don't like Adventure Time oddly enough)
Favorite YouTubers: Markiplier, Pewdiepie, Tobuscus, Cry
Things I don't like (allow me to apologize in advance:) Anime (but not all of it,) John Green, neckbeards and "nice guys," Adventure Time, artistic genericism (when artists duplicate ideas and themes that have already been expressed ad nauseum, such as the criticism of religion and the criticism of capitalism)

A Story About How I Became a Pony Artist

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 19, 2014, 9:54 PM
  My sister introduced me ("There's a character named 'Doctor Whooves,' that's how awesome it is!") but my amazing, hilarious, and wonderfully insane friend Illarya got me hooked on it in 9th grade. I saw my first episode when I was working on a giant drawing and wanted something to watch as I colored. My first episode was the last half of "May the Best Pet Win," which is ironically one of my least favorites (it's just not as cool as some others.) When I watched Pinkie sing The Smile Song in the next one, though, I was so happy and starstruck that I wanted to laugh and dance and cry at the same time. My Bronyversary happens to fall on Valentine's Day, because I found a pony image macro site and declared myself a fan on that day (2012 I think.) 
  Something rather unfortunate that I experienced early on, though, was how inadequate I felt when I looked at the memes and watched the show. There was no possible way, I thought, that I could ever draw that well. The adorable characters blew my little animal drawings out of the water. I didn't let that perceived inadequacy stop me, though. While I still felt inferior to the show's amazing art, I still drew things that I was proud of, and I drew ponies of my own. The first pony I ever drew was a blue mare with a mustache. I gave it to one of my friends in my biology class. 
  I drew more and more ponies that year and the next, almost becoming obsessive about it. There even came a time when I could ONLY draw ponies. As I practiced I progressively got better, and I finally felt like my drawings were as good as the real thing. Something that drawing ponies has helped me realized is this: your art teacher is wrong! Copying another artist's style isn't exactly professional, but I became a significantly better artist this way, better than I would have on my own. Drawing ponies helped me learn about form, movement, facial expressions, and commercial art in general. And most importantly, it helped me to gain a lot of confidence. 
  The person I was back in middle school is almost unrecognizable from who I am now, and MLP is one of the major reasons for that. I've gone from being someone who would say, "Dressing up as a cartoon character in public sounds fun, but those girls (come on, we all had 'those girls!') will laugh at me," to someone who says, "Who cares what they think? They're just jealous that they can't rock a corset and tutu!" The reason I gained this confidence, believe it or not, is people like you who say nice things about my art and support me in what I do. This community is the giant whose shoulders I stand on, and I would have nothing without you. Even when it seems like My Little Pony has jumped the shark, like with Equestria Girls, I soldier on with the other diehards and it turns out to not be as bad as I anticipated. Likewise, when it seems like the pony fans have finally lost it, like with the PinkiePony/Molestia disaster, I soldier on and we come out of it better than we were before. After four amazing, unforgettable seasons, I am now proud to call myself a Brony.
