Art Timelapse Videos!

Here's just a few of my art time-lapse videos. Be sure to follow me on Youtube for more! www.youtube.com/tsitra360








I was noted of someone who was going through a hard time with bullies and depression.  I'm not a professional dealing with strong human emotions, but I did my best offering some advice that I knew worked for me and others.  So I thought I share what I wrote and hope it helps you too.


  • Constantly smile, everyday. Start your day with a positive attitude, even if the day before was bad. Even if its a forced smile, simply smiling causes the brain to send endorphins into the mind, which is responsible for joy. Again, remember to do this everyday.

  • If you draw, I do too, I've been doing this for over a decade. Just remember to draw for yourself, not for the attention of others. If not, same principle applies to whatever you enjoy doing. You don't want to get stressed over seeking the attention of strangers.

  • All you need is one friend in life. It can even be someone related. I blame social media for the idea that more friends are better, and I'm talking about 1000s, which is silly. If you feel you don't have a friend right now, always keep looking and be confident in yourself. People are naturally drawn to confidence. Also, remember people aren't perfect, so be ready to forgive and not keep track of who did wrong.

  • Got bullies? I had them too. They left me alone after a while when I paid them no attention. Its hard, thats for sure, but if you don't show any emotion to their pickings, they get bored or moved on. Bullies feed on emotions and harming others who appear weak.

  • Life is bad, and life is great! It goes up and down. There will always....always be more good days. As I said before, start everyday being confident, because that will make more good days happen.

  • And finally, save this advice and more from others as little reminders to help keep your spirits up. Read it everyday if you must, we always need constant reminders.

If you have a friend or have someone you know who sometimes get down... you are in a better position than I in helping. Always be someone they can talk to. A shoulder to cry on. Support their dreams. Remind them regularly that you love them. Be patient. And of course be slow to anger. For its easy to say things we don't mean.

Again, I'm not a professional, just another person with some ideas I feel are helpful. Due to severity and circumstances, some people may need to seek professional help.

Have a great day!

Tsitra360 I want to ask you if I am able to use some of your pictures to print on some shirts as there is no one here in South Africa that sells then so I want to sell those shirts to the Bronies in SA but with no profit at all as I will only be asking them to pay the shirts and the printing.

Hi Tsitra I want to ask you if I can use some of your pictures to print T-Shirts for the fandom here in South Africa as there is on one that sells these types of shirts here in SA. This will not be for profit at all as they will only pay for the shirt and printing on it.

hi
I saw your work here and at "Deviantart" and I must say that, I really got amazed by your technique: the shadows and the way you make reall all the body of the ponies in space.
I would really like to know, by your aproval,how you do it.
Sure, if you don't like to tell me that is ok. I have a studant that want to do it like you do and he asked me to ask you, how you do it.
He admires your work. :)

Tsitra, you're a babe. You're probably my fave pony artist ever. I just wanted to tell you that your work is stunningly awesome and you seem nice and friendly on your streams. I'm saving up so you can take my money and turn it into faboo art. Keep it up.

Hey there Tsitra, I was wondering, I'm looking into getting an iMac and I'm trying to figure out how much ram I should get. I love your art, and your youtube videos, I've learned a lot from them, and look forward to more! I'd like to work in higher res in Photoshop, but it slows my computer down, and I also use many tabs at the same time. I'm curious how much ram you use so it can help me when choosing.

I thank you, and again, you're work is incredible, the style, the lighting, the feeling I get when looking at your art, simply amazing! I've only been drawing for three years, and I've loved every bit, and looking at amazing artists such as yourself is motivating to me to one day be a great artist myself!

Keep up the good work, and take car! :)

Thank you! And I've worked on both a PC and an iMac, and they're both good, I'm just wondering if a Mac would be a bit better if all I want to do on it is do creative work, I don't plan on playing games on the iMac, because I know that they aren't great at playing them. I've worked on a Mac for making small games, and I loved it, but I've never owned one, so I can't say with confidence which one would be better, or if it's mostly a matter of preference.

You're absolutely correct about it being a matter of preference. Personally for myself,
I tend to dislike Macs because of compatibility issues, especially with devices that aren't
from apple. You should consider this; Macs aren't beefy when it comes to RAM which
means sometimes when you're doing large artworks such as rendering, you may lack 
memory.

A bright side to Macs is the display, which can certainly make a huge difference
in art and photo editing. But you also have to keep in mind your budget. Apple
is notorious for being expensive, whereas you can get a much more powerful
computer for the same price. It boils down to performance and compatibility
vs a superb display, app support and price. 

I'm really biased xD but you could really, just buy a 4k monitor and use HDMI to hook
up to your PC. ;P Ohh and thanks for the watch, bud! I appreciate it!
