Hi Everypony!

I'm flutterguy317, vector artist and creator of Ponyscape, vector art creation software based on Inkscape! I create vector artwork of ponies from the TV show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and sometimes dabble in creating vector art of old Disney shows. My gallery consists of show-accurate art, which is meant to be a resource to the community to be used in any type of projects, and more stylized art. I have been branching out into adding new artistic features to my vectors, including lighting, shading, and textures, and I hope to improve as an artist in general.

For creating my art, I currently use either a desktop running Mageia 3 Linux or a laptop running Linux Mint 14, and I use Ponyscape for vectoring and the Gimp for any non-vectoring work that I do. I work as a software engineer for a company that makes laser-cutting machines, so I have put my vectoring to use and created some pretty neat marked-metal ponies.

I worked on developing a derivative of Inkscape called Ponyscape, which uses the latest Inkscape base and adds some useful features! Because of this work, I've also been able to contribute some bugfixes back to upstream Inkscape. You can find out about the latest version of Ponyscape in the Ponyscape-Vectors group. I have now begun work on a new vector suite which will feature many of the features of Ponyscape, plus animation and some other useful features.

I'm also a co-host (along with RainbowPlasma, Bernd01, and Atmospark) of an awesome podcast/radiocast on Everfree Radio called Cutie Art Crusaders! We discuss MLP fan artwork centralized around a different theme each week. It's been a ton of fun, and we've gotten to spotlight art from all reaches of the fandom and meet some pretty amazing artists! More info can be found on our deviantart page: :iconcutieartcrusaders:

You are free to use any of my vectors in other works, but please make sure to give me credit and let me know that you're using it. You don't need my permission, but I'd love to be able to see what you create!
Thank you all so much for all of the favs, comments, and watches! I can't get around to responding to everypony, but I do really appreciate them!

I'm thinking of doing a weekly stream, what day would work better?

Hi Everypony!!!

Cutie Art Crusaders Episode 104 airs tonight at 8:00 PM EDT (0:00 UTC) on the Everfree Network Livestream!!  This is our official 2 year anniversary episode, and in it we take a look at some absolutely amazing pieces of art featuring human versions of our favorite pastel colored ponies!!  We discuss the differences between drawing ponies and humans, and talk about some of the things to watch out for when drawing humans in general.  If you can make the livestream we hope to see you there!  If not, Everfree should have the episode up on Youtube shortly afterward!

Good evening Mister Flutterguy.
I would like to ask you to not further support Dakari King Mykan, partly in favor of the fandom in itself. The guy not only steals from other artists in order to make his hatefics about the show, he also attacks other bronies and critics alike because he cant stand criticism for something that as he admits was created in order to hate on the show you like to an almost fascistic degree.

Hi there!  I was not aware of these issues that you suggest, but this person (along with literally everyone else) has implicit permission to use any of my vectors (barring those that I have created involving OC's) as long as they give me credit for the vector.  These are the general stipulations I have for using my artwork, although I can and will redact permission if I find that my artwork is being used inappropriately.  Even if the person who is using this vector may exhibit the qualities that you state, he is using my artwork in the correct way and I personally don't want to get involved in politics at this time (and me giving everyone permission to use my vectors does not mean that I support them in any way).  If this changes, I will of course take action.  As you are the only person who has messaged me about this issue and implied that I support the ideals of this other person (which I don't), along with making me feel guilty about the whole ordeal, I would ask that you do not send me any additional messages on the topic.

I'm not sure who best to ask this too, but I watch the CAC and I reckon you guys know what you are doing, I might ask this on the main CAC page as well but I found you first Flutterguy so...
I do some art on paper with chalk pastels, what is the best way for me to get them onto my computer in digital form? I have a scanner which is ok, should I just try using that or is there a better way?
Thanks, and keep up the amazing work on CAC, I haven't actually been a brony for very long, I'm a newer member of the herd and as such I haven't watched CAC for that long either, I have a lot of back episodes to watch...
thanks and of course, /)
