Hey all! I needed a new account dedicated to horses, my photography and my drawings. EVERYTHING HORSE!

CinnamonStudios


:iconcinnamonstudios:

This of course links to the formation of my official company. That's right "Cinnamon Studios" is a REAL company. My own STUDIOS! (Yes, it cost a bit of money to set up, heh...but it was essential for any future work I produce)

NOTE! THIS NEW ACCOUNT is targeted at those that want to see only horsey based stuff!




So, why decide to make a new account?



-Everything on OMG-Chibi is cluttered
-This username doesn't relate to things like "CinnamonStudios" does... (Links to CinnamonMewMew, my company, my Model Horse Blab account)
- CinnamonStudios sounds more professional

So please make sure you watch my new account! I've already put up some "never-before-seen" photos and new concepts for Conquering Tide!



So there you have it.

Hello new watchers, and welcome back previous yet ever so faithful watchers!
I hope I'll be able to bring a little more joy to your life through my art.

Hey all! So this is my new, more focused and less cluttered account!

AmyVsTheWorld


:iconamyvstheworld:

This account directly links to my new You Tube vlog Channel (with the same title), and a newly formed Tumblr!
It's basically going to contain artwork that relates to my everyday life experiences (that means I get to draw myself a lot! HURR.) *Awkward laugh*...

NOTE! THIS NEW ACCOUNT is for those that want to see only game/meme/comicy/fun/Amy related artwork.
There will be absolutely NO relation to model horsey stuff, or CinnamonMewMew blah, blah, blah.... This is a fresh start with a new perspective.
It may even contain some mature content. So you have been warned/informed!




So, why decide to make a new account?



Well, I've been considering it for a while now, as looking at my gallery on this account,.... just makes me wanna puke. Everything is thrown in together, it's an absolute mess!
- Also, As soon as I uploaded: Go home Colours, you are DRUNK by OMG-Chibi
It was an instant hit! I haven't had a sudden load of watchers or comments from new people in AGES! It was a dayyyymn good feeling! Totally refreshing!
- I also feel like my life has been turned totally upside down and inside out. Moving to London and starting my Animation course in University has been like a clean slate. Nobody knew me, I'm in an unfamiliar place living alone...and it's TOTALLY exciting, terrifying, colourful, stressful, enlightening, loud, amusing.... and other assorted adjectives... So much has happened SO quickly. It's been a bit of a shock to the system. So I want a new life here too.

I found that I have a totally conflicting audience. Half are horsey fans, the other half are watching me for the game/meme/comics/general Amy art.
So it's a right mess, and I'm sure my watchers are getting sick of seeing some things they aren't at all interested in. I'm still keeping OMG-Chibi active, but it won't be AS active. I'm also making a separate account for my Horsey stuff... So the other half of my watchers get a fresh start too.

So there you have it.

Hello new watchers, and welcome back previous yet ever so faithful watchers!
I hope I'll be able to bring a little more joy to your life through my art.

Hey all! Wow, where do I start. It's been absolutely CRAZY!!! The whole moving into the new flat, being in London, starting uni, animation stuff, making new friends... It's been utterly exhausting! (as well as dealing with the whole business side of things with Stone Horses!)

By the way, the Conquering Tide models are now available from:
www.stoneponys.com

Which leads me to an interrogative;
I've noticed there's a HUGE difference in watchers. Some want the horsey stuff, others don't, and want to see more game art and non specifically horsey related stuff...
Now this account was never really meant to link with my You Tube stuff, it was meant to be independent, for my general art...

Now, I have a LOAD of model horse photography from months ago that I haven't got around to releasing (even though many are requesting they'd like to see more)... but also I have this other rather large issue (that has been holding me back on the Model horse stuff) regarding the fact that many of my watchers don't want their message boxes flooded with the horsey stuff, simply because they aren't interested.
Do you see? It's just SUCH a conflict audience wise.
...(...and also, maybe I'm a little tired of being nagged about the You tube stuff. Asking politely is ok, but when I get angry messages complaining and bluntly stating that I should be making more Model horse films.... well, I have whole list of reasons why it would mike my life extremely difficult if I were to drop everything that I'm working on, and go out filming models....)... ANYWAY....

So, I was thinking of setting up a separate DA for the model horse stuff, I think I may even set up a poll so that you can vote. Bear in mind that a specific Horse based account would have LOADS of content that i would never release on here, due to its sheer quantity.
Unfortunately, there is a fake "CinnamonMewMew" on deviant art (and she's stolen my art)...so i wouldn't be able to use that... but anyway...

I'll leave you with that to think about.

Hi everyone!
Moving to London in two days. ZOMG, I'm SO stressed. I have SO much to doooooooo!!!

ANYWAY!
I FINALLY got around to enabling my pictures for purchase through Deviant Art. So, if you LOVE my photography and the Conquering Tide ORIGINAL art, but don't like the watermarks, you can now buy my work for a very fair price from DA itself!
I could really do with the extra pennies right now to fund my film making and to get more art supplies.
So take a look in my gallery. Those with a little icon next to it, an orangey coloured Deviant art bag, or in the top right corner of the image's page it'll say "Buy This Print", then that is available to purchase!
You can buy everything from posters to deck out your room, to mouse mats, to greetings cards, to magnets, to mugs, to fine art canvasses!
If you do buy any of my art/photography, please let me know! I'd love to see pictures of where you've put it up! Send me pics!
Christmas is coming up, so maybe you'd like to put some of my art on the list ;P

If you have any suggestions on what you'd like to be available (image wise) from me so that you can purchase them through Deviant Art, let me know in the comments.
I have LOADS more model horse photos that I can upload...or would you like to see more Conquering Tide art? But characters with nice scenic backgrounds, rather than the concept art with the pain backgrounds and all the labeling.

Anyway, let me know what you think!

Lovage!

Hello my lovely darlings!

I've started a new You Tube channel called:

:la: "AmyVsTheWorld" :la:

It's aimed at the general You Tube audience...and NO I'm not quitting the model horse movies, I'll just be moving to London in September, and won't be able to do any model horse series filming until X-mas (Don't worry, you'll definitely have Season 1 of Conquering Tide complete this summer, and Episode 1 of Season 2 coming in October.
So I wanted to be able to film SOMETHING.

If you like/follow channels like Onision, ShaneDawson, Tobuscus, AmazingPhil and danisnotonfire, then you'll love what I do!

But yeah, I'd like to show the other creative stuff I do. Also, how awkward I am! It's also aimed at late-teens +, so if you're easily offended, or very young, then perhaps it's not for you.
So if you could spread the word, share, subscribe and like... I'll LOVE YOU FOREVERRRRRRRRR!!! :love:

Here, have a link!

Thank you guys!!!
Lots of love,

Hello everyone! I hope everything is well with you, wherever you are in the world.

How am I?

I'm pretty good right now, thanks for asking. Been working out at the gym with my personal trainer Steve. Feeling a little better about myself.
Got a heck of a lot on my plate right now... But it's very exciting stuff all the same!
Sorry, can't give away much yet...but I can tell you... This is big. I mean REALLY BIG.
Oh, you'll see soon anyway :aww: , sorry for teasing you guys ;P

Weather has been horrific here. We basically have had non stop rain, so I haven't been able to film anything. Confound this welsh weather!

Yeah, so, sorry if I haven't been replying to comments, messages etc... I haven't had much time to spare at all!

What other news do I have? Ummm...
Oh yeah, back from Breyerfest. It was lovely to see my fans, the workshop was a FANTASTIC SUCCESS (could have been a much bigger success had it not been for...err, I shouldn't get into it) Plus I have 30+ new gorgeous models...but after my whole experience, I've concluded I DO NOT want to deal with Breyer again, so I highly doubt I'll agree to do another workshop at Breyerfest next year. The only other thing I'll be doing with them, is that I have to help judge some contest in the future. But that is IT.
But don't worry, there is an alternative... I'll keep you posted.

Went to see the new Batman... Hmm, could have been better. That's just my opinion. There were a heck of a LOT of inaccuracies in it. An entertaining film, but badly executed, as me and Curtis have agreed.

Really need some money for a new stills SLR camera, so I'm thinking I may sell some customs soon or something. Not official! Just thinking about it. Just gonna need some extra funds soon.

Anyway, I'll leave ya with that, and I wish you all well!
Lovage,

LIFE NEWS! YEAH! :typerhappy:

OK, I'll keep this short and simple. Been SO incredibly busy.

Everything is moved out of the flat in Cardiff, and I'm back home for the summer. Had an EPIC room clearing/tidying session. I have WAY too much stuff for one room. ^^;
Oh well, off to London in a few months, where I'll live for the next 3+ years of my life.

Working very hard here preparing for my presentation at Breyerfest 2012. :work:

Going to try and film Ep. 9 of Conquering Tide this week (all depends on the weather, and this has been the wettest summer on record
:shakefist:)

Have a personal trainer now, and I have a 55 minute workout that almost kills me, 3 times a week. At least I'm finally doing something to get in shape though! I'm looking forward to being more confident about my body, and myself on the whole. :#1:

Went to see The Amazing Spider-Man twice in the cinema :spidey:. Good film. Andrew Garfield is quirky and cute. Can't compare it to the original 2002 Tobey Spidey. Totally different take on the story, which is a good thing, they knew it would never surpass the original as a "re-make". But it's not a re-make. So I give it a thumbs up.

Been hanging out with friends, which is comforting. I've missed old college buddies. :manhug:

How am I personally?
Meh. Up and down. The amount of "up" is starting to catch-up with the level of "down", so I'm getting better. I'm a human being, naturally I can't feel fantastic all the time. As gloomy as I've been sounding recently, I can assure you I'm not depressed or anything like that... Just... nostalgic. Which, as you can imagine, it tugs on the old heart strings a little here and there. Catches me off guard sometimes.
But, I've been through far worse. So I'll be fine in no time. :thanks:

MOVING ON. :movingon:
Anyway, I best get back to work. Got professional design work to do in the early hours of tomorrow.
So goodnight folks! xxx

Decided to indulge in in a tag for once.
Tagged by :iconsam-ryan-king18: LET'S DO THIS!

Facts about me:
1). My favourite colour is Red.
2). I have bad circulation, so my hands and feet are always freezing. They go so numb while drawing or writing sometimes, that I actually have to sit on them for a few minutes.
3). I may not show it often, or verbally state it, but I'm highly competitive.
4). As soon as I wake up after a night's sleep, I feel absolutely wide awake, then after about 30 minutes I feel like I've had no sleep at all.
5). I have this strange habit, I don't know how to describe it, maybe a mild case of OCD, but I find I need to change the order of things. This can be as little as just moving figures into a different order...all the way to the extremes of moving all the furniture in my room around! But I feel I have to. Everything has to by tidy, so no chaos or mess... but still, it's like I get bored of seeing things in the same order. Weird.
6). I'm an introvert.
7). I think best when I'm lying down. I swear I'm not sleeping!
8). I'm a bit of a grammar Nazi.
9). When I was little, all the other girls were into Barbie and Baby dolls, glittery pink and frills...whilst I like Dinosaurs. Yep, I could name every species. I wanted to be a palaeontologist from age 4.
10.) You'd be surprised by my past.
11.) I love the ocean and water.

Answers for :iconsam-ryan-king18: :
1). Did you ever do something really, really retarded ? If yes, What?
Oh countless things!
For example, I could be on the phone to someone, then I'd think to myself, "Hang on a sec, I can't find my phone" *starts to panic* ... then I realise of course, I'm actually on the phone...hence, there's my phone. Oh dear...

2). Superglue sticks everything. Why does the glue doesn't stick IN the tube?
Well, yes, that's because in order for the glue to become adhesive, it has to react with air. No air in the tube. Problem solved.

3). If you could meet a celebrity in rl-life, who would you want to meet?
Stephen Fry! I'd love to sit down with a good ol' cuppa and have a nice chat.

4). Ever got chased by an angry horse/dog?
No, but I did stupidly get in the way of an angry dog, trying to protect my own dog.

5). Do you like Youtube?
Not the new Youtube. It was great back in 2009 when you could actually rate videos, and Google weren't trying to push Google + in your face.

6). Did you ever meet an other DA member in real? If yes, Who?
Yes, I've met quite a few DA members in my time. To name one :icondennyvixen:

7). Do you play FeralHeart? If yes, how much do you like it?
No, what's that?

8). Whats your favourite animal?
Probably pretty obvious. Horses.

9). Have you ever dreamed of being able to fly?
Yeah. I haven't actually flown in a dream though, I've glided though! (just like Spyro, :la:)

10). A bread with butter does always land on the buttered site, while a cat does always land on its paws. What happens if you put some butter on a cats back?
Then you have one very irritated and greasy cat.

11). Do you like Waffles?
*sings* "Yeah we like waffles!"

Heh. In a more lifted mood.

Would just like to say that "breyerluver99" or "OMG Breyer" has fully apologized, and I have forgiven her.
So there's no need for anymore conflict. Which is good. I could do with less stress right now ^^;

On a note of artwork use, (for anyone that is curious of the right way to use other people's art)
Tracing can be very helpful to help you learn how to draw things a certain way, especially with regard to proportions. I myself have studied other artists (such as Patrick Brown) to learn how they draw, but I'd NEVER EVER post tracings or studies online... mainly because they are purely studies. Tracing something shows you can't draw that thing in particular yourself, so you have essentially copied it.... Also, as they are pretty much replicas of the original, what would you prove by posting them? Other than you can trace a few lines.
I really don't mind people tracing my art to LEARN, for example how I create proportions. But you must never post it online claiming you just drew it, or if you do, it is absolutely essential that you make it AS CLEAR as possible that it is a trace, give a link to the original artist, and ASK permission to post it.

Same goes for wallpapers. If you want to use any of my art as wallpapers for the home screen of your desktop/laptop, then feel free! I have no issues with that at all, I welcome it!
It's just the use of my artwork/photography on your website/facebook/youtube etc that I have issues with...only because I've worked my whole life to achieve this standard, and create my artwork. So if you were to use my pictures to spruce up your pages, well think...its really not very fair on me, is it? The people that do it hardly ever give me credit, so anyone looking up their page will assume the person that posted it, originally made it... which of course is misleading. Essentially, in that situation you'd be using my art to make the page/your account etc attractive to the viewers, and I'd get nothing in return (if no credit was given)...

To give a literal visual on this situation, it would be like having a room that you own, but you decide to decorate it with stolen furniture. The furniture would make the room look much more visually appealing, but at the end of the day...
Did you make that furniture?
No...
Okay, so did you pay for that furniture?
No?
Right, well in that case, you MUST have had permission from the original owner/maker to use it?
... No!?
So you're using and benefiting from furniture that you didn't make, and didn't pay for, and that you lack permission to use.
So you'd get the goods, but the person that put the time, effort and money into making it....gets nothing? Not even a mention?
That's hardly fair in my books... and that's the sad reality of it.

If those using it asked me first, and made sure there was a link to my deviant art/youtube account, and they stated clearly that it was made by me...Then I wouldn't have an issue at all! but the thing is, people would never go to that length (for the majority of the time) as apparently it takes a bit of effort to type a bit of credit. it's just far too easy to just save the image and use/post it. That's the reality.
When you think of the price of the equipment I use, Photoshop, Tablet, laptop, pens, paper, models, paints, fuel to drive to locations for photography, cameras, memory cards...years spent developing my style of drawing...the list goes on...
And it's all free for you to save on your computer and keep forever! =)
...And it's all totally worth it, as long as the result isn't abused. Surely a bit of credit and a link isn't much to ask for?

I really don't mean to make a fuss, but my art is my life! I work so hard to give the world the best I can.

There are of course the countless wonderful people that realize and consider the amount of time, money and work gone into pieces of art. The majority of deviant artists will completely understand, especially those that make a living from their art.
But there are those few that may be confused, or don't understand... So I hope this has been helpful. :hug:

Goodbye Cardiff, and hello London (fast forward to September, heh).

How am I? I'm ok. Up and down. But that's ok. It's the usual.
On another not, I've got an official running schedule planned out. Gotta get fitter. I hate running in the city, but I have no other option now... so I've just got to stop moaning and get out there. Starting with 3 times a week (with a bit of luck!)

I like being back in the flat though. I'm independent, I get to cook what I want and i have my own space. It's so cozy here.

So what have I been working on?
Been non stop in my world! I've been sculpting, planning, painting, drawing... THE LOT! I wish sometimes I could make myself sit down, and be lazy. I just can't seem to do it. I always have to be doing something creative.

Anyway, I still have loads of model horse photography that I haven't got around to posting yet, as well as more digital artwork and sculptures. It's all exciting stuff!
Anyway, that's all for now folks.

Here have a pat from me :pat:

More stuff coming soon (I promise!)

Yo! 'sup guys?

Yah know, it's true. Everything IS better when the sun shines. LITERALLY! It's glorious. Even if I still have a few complications, it just seems to brighten things. So, yup. I'm pretty content and feeling balanced right now. Which is a good thing. Let's hope it stays consistent. :nod:

But no more relaxing now, got so much to do!
I have to crack out some character animations on Flash for Conquering Tide this week. 'Tis a lot of work, but it'll be an interesting area to explore. Part of the workload for my final major project. As well as more Character concept art....and shizzle.

I've been doing some sculpting. Managed to make a semi 3D bust of Thor from Conquering Tide. Pictures coming soon!
I may even be selling some casts after he's baked. We'll see. ^^;

In other news, I've been filming the next few parts of Into the Soul. Looks like Conquering Tide will have to wait until Summer, when I'm not under pressure to work. But trust me, it'll be epic. There's a dramatic closure to season 1. :giggle:

Hmm...I feel like drawing some ponies... I haven't drawn ponies in aaaaaaaaaaaages. :aww:

Peace out!

P.S. When life gives you lemons, keep 'em. 'Cus, hey... Free lemons! :lemon:

S'more crud stuff going on in my life at the moment... but I'll not depress you with it... So, MOVING ON!

In other news, everyone on art foundation is starting their final major project. We have 11 weeks to complete it.
Basically, you have to design your own brief and title (a tiring and frustrating process, writing a load of flowery arty fartyness)
My project title is "Exploring the Development of Characters for Animation".
I'm taking my characters from Conquering Tide into a series of animations on flash, as well as doing loads of concept art, comics, storyboarding... resulting in my final piece, which will be a series of 1/9th scale sculptures of the main characters in the concept art style. Just as studios like Dreamworks and Pixar have to make actual 3D sculptures before they can take them into CGI animation.
They won't be realistic horse sculpts, they'll be as the concept designs are. So, in the end I may end up casting, painting, and selling a few... but we'll see how it goes.
I'll be sculpting them out of Super sculpey... or possibly modelling wax. I'll see what my budget is. I tried doing a test run of a bust of Loki grinning, using the ceramics clay they had uni... To put it simply, it was rubbish, and they don't have access to a kiln to be able to fire it... but I've taken some pictures anyway, and I'll post them in a few days or so. =)

So that's all the news for now folks!
Stay tuned for more.

How can I, tell you everything about this
I'll try but I'm afraid that I might fail,
I won't cover it up, just give me time
I won't cover it up, just give me time

As I start to lose myself
I just need somebody's help

Every now and then I fall apart
And you realise I was never perfect from the start
Now you see, who I am
Every now and then I break your heart,
And you realise I was never perfect from the start
Now you see, who I am

I've tried a million times, it's proving hard to find,
I just need somebody's help,
Behind closed doors is where, I keep my burdens close,
So you can't see who I am

Every now and then I'll fall apart
And you realise I was never perfect from the start
Now you see, who I am
Every now and then I'll break your heart,
And you realise I was never perfect from the start
But do you see who I am?

I've had such a long streak of actually being so happy with things and myself... having good fortune, positivity and fun...

Inevitably, it never lasts. I knew it was too good to be true...


...and when you've been feeling so good and content for so long...

It really does hit you hard.

...and it hurts.

Florence was amazing!

The galleries were mindblowing.

I got to watch fellow course mates get ridiculously drunk on cheap and nasty wine, which was quite hilarious.

It was absolutely freezing!

...and the return journey was horrific, as we were stranded in the coach for 16 hours on the M25 (motorway) because of the damn snow.
But yeah, what and experience =D

Also, Just returned from my trip up to London; interview with Ravensbourne University for the Animation degree. This is a majorly "big deal", Ravensbourne only takes on the best... People graduating from the course go off to work for mega companies like Pixar and dreamworks!

184 people applied this year, and only 34 can be selected for the course.

Only 2 people have been accepted unconditionally on the course based on their portfolio and interview...

AND I'M ONE OF THEM!!!! AHHH! I'VE GOT A PLACE! I'VE GOT A PLACE!!! A FREAKING UNCONDITIONAL PLACE!!! =D
So much happiness!!!!

LONDON, here I come BABY!




That is all =D

Hey guys, just to let you know, I'm off to Florence, Italy for the week. (Art trip with my foundation course), I promise I'll do plenty of drawings to show yah when I return...
Coming back on the 5th, but then going straight back up to London as I have an interview for the Animation Degree I want to study in RAVENSBOURNE! WOO! =D

So I'll be officially back on the 7th. So don't worry if I don't reply to stuff, I'm not dead! I'm just away.

Other than that, I've been incredibly busy with my last project...as well as trying to sort out my portfolio, which is a right pain in the bum. I just want a few days to chill out and do absolutely bugger all,...alas I'm always thinking, and I worry about things too. Been feeling a little gloomy recently :raincloud:... Also, I miss Curtis...lots and LOTS :sniff: ... maybe that's why...

ANYWAY.
Okie dokie lokie. Have a great week y'all!

LOVAGE TO ALL!

Hey there everyone, and happy new year!

Hope you've all enjoyed Christmas, I certainly did =D ... although admittedly, I'm disappointed at the lack of snow. WHERE ARE YOU SNOW!? :ohnoes:
On the other hand, I've had some wonderful gifts. SKYRIM! Ahhhh, it's sooo awesome! Also received a particularly awesome pair of heels off the darling other half... as well as a load of other epic stuff. I am a very luck girl :w00t!:

So in the last few weeks I've turned out more artwork and photography than EVER. I'm quite pleased with myself for sitting myself down and doing it, if I may say so :meow:
(Me over the last week >) :typerhappy:

Why? Well the thing is, I'd planned to do SO much filming over the holidays, however the weather has been appalling! Rain, gusty and drizzly weather...everyday. The area I'm supposed to be filming the next ep of Conquering Tide has become bogged down with mud. GAH! :tantrum:
So instead, I've tried to make up for the lack of films with artwork. I mean, I've got some filming done, like the next episode of Into The Soul is all filmed, and parts of the next episode of Conquering Tide, but I'm afraid that's it :forgiveme:

Other than that... I'm due to start back in University on the 9th of January... bugger, I need more time! :nuu:
Also am going to have to deal with all the hassle of preparing my UCAS form for the 15th :paranoid:

I don't think I have much more news that's worth mentioning... so there we go folks!
Have a nice day! :la:
Here, have some pokeballs :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball: :pokeball:
