Theres something I haven't quite really understood. Pixel adoptables. Any I don't mean like "oh, why do people bother buying/adopting them?" but more like, the way the sellers treat them like they're alive and will be put to sleep if no one buys/adopts them. 

I mean, truth be told, I was also like this. But then I realized: These are all imaginary ponies/wolves/dragons/sparkledogs/whatever. They don't exist. They're imaginary. I mean, it's kinda in the word, right? "Image-inary" "Imaginary". They're an image. They're not alive.

So when people go "blah blah blah I can't take care of them, blah blah blah good homes, blah blah", I snort. Because, seriously. I enjoy people taking care of their characters, but seriously. They need a good home, and then you want money for them? Do you want to sell them for money, and thus objectifying them like hell, putting a price tag on them, or do you want them to have a good and loving imaginary home, living in an imaginary stables or whatever.

I mean, I have also got an imaginary stables, with imaginary horses. And I've got about 30 characters I've declared dead. Because they were never alive in the first place. They are only a product of my imagination, they're not even actual objects. 

I just don't quite get it. That is all.

You are one of my my weekly featured artists.

This is the part where I say nice things about your art, your style of dress and what a bright and shiny snowflake you are, but I'm having a day, so I'm not going to.

I have recorded 41 minutes of me blabbering about how I draw horses, and how to draw it. I have NO idea how to get it up somewhere so you can see. I used your drawing as an example, and used examples of muscle charts, skeleton charts and stuff. I talk quite slowly, and I say "eh" a lot in the beginning, but not planning does that to you ;D It's also my first recorded drawing "tutorial" :P
Any ideas? I don't think Youtube likes it (since it's too long). Do you think DeviantArt accepts that long videos? I could try to do a shorter one sometime, but if you would bother watch 40 minutes of me blabbering about drawing horses, I would be happy to not do it again xD It's all a learning process, though! I may become better at it if I do it more :P And English isn't my first language, so my English might sound a bit strange since I wasn't concentrating on my voice too much :P

Sure, if you just email it to me/somehow submit it on dA, I'd be glad to watch it. I have alot of patience and when it comes to something like drawing aid, I wouldn't hesitate to watch it twice. C| I'll note you my Email. o:

I just realized I can now upload videos longer than 15 minutes to YouTube, so I am currently uploading it there. I will note you with the link, as it is unlisted. I hope you won't hate my voice, (I listened to it all after recording, and I don't think I sounded TOO bad :P) and I hope you learn something helpful from it. If there's anything you want to know about horses, I would love to try to help you, and hopefully learn something myself in the process. Don't hesitate to note me if there's anything you would like some help to learn : )
