I joined dA with a mentality that I should change my habits to be more productive when I have free time, and that was the best decision I've ever made in a long time.
Frequently made comments and questions:1. What program do you use?
-(Trying to ease back to GIMP for whatever reason people keep telling me though, but I'll stick with Graphicsgale for animations.)2. Why ponies?
-No particular reason. It just grew in on me.3. This is the best pony pixelling / you are really great at what you do!
-Are my works great? Thanks, but sometimes, I wonder if I can have greater.4. [Something about hair animation]
-Too much trouble for me to want to go through. That took so many days worth of effort. 5. Why your username?
-I had a username of MarxMaster, which came from some silly Maplestory forum joke. I wanted something similar to that but related to the art style I'm sticking with, so I tried PixMaster. That was taken, so I end up PixMeister. I later found it too egotistical after taking a hard lesson about the subject, so I wondered if I can shorten the name to PixM, but since that's taken, I stuck a 3 as it kind of goes with how that would be pronounced.6. Can you make something for me?
-You'll have to persuade me. I'm most likely not gonna be free work any time soon.7. I wanna take one of your works and reference/transform it into something else / I wanna take a shot at your style
-For the sake of common courtesy, please do not touch any works that are specifically made for somebody (this includes game sprites) unless I explicitly give you permission to use. They are custom pieces of artwork and commissioners may feel insulted if you transform artwork that was made especially for them.
-Read this: [link]8. Have you had formal training in art?
-Yes. One drawing class and a photography class both in high school.9.Can you join this contest?
-Unless you're offering a lot, probably not.
