We need banners mys_elf Board owner 06/28/2021 (Mon) 09:44:31 No. 2 [Reply] [Last]
and a spoiler image for that matter. Please suggest some in thread. Banners should be 300x100 and less than 200kb in size (though smaller is ideally better). Spoiler images should be square, and I think 100x100. Feel free to submit in a higher resolution so if thumbnails get bigger in the future, the spoiler can scale with it.

>>14518 Done, I'm pretty happy with how she came out. Anyone want to do a stock vector edit? It's fun and pretty simple. I'd appreciate Stocktavia because of course I would. And don't even tell me the stock vectors are deformed and not cute.
>>14522 I love her, and I love them. I just don't know where to start with doing the vector edits
>>14523 Pick an image to use as a base and other images for elements you want to use. Paint 3D works fine. Fill bucket tool for colors, copy and paste and eraser for merging images to add elements, and the pixel pen for touching up details. There are also tools that let you draw perfectly curved lines. There is a good example of how this looks in progress here: >>14083 Of course there are the finer details you figure out like having to adjust the sensitivity of the fill bucket, but those are the basics.

So I was thinking about Chrissy and the changelings a few days back, and remembered something minor, but potentially able to mean maybe something at least. When we first meet Chrissy, she's disguised as Cadence. However, her eyes are green: Something that should be an obvious giveaway that something's not right. There's no point in going into that any deeper at the moment, because obviously Twilight should've noticed that, but we know why she didn't for the sake of the finale. Anyway, we see the form she takes on later in The Mean Six also having her green eyes. As far as I'm aware, the pony she was pretending to be didn't exist prior -at least not in Ponyville- but I feel it's safe to assume that probably wasn't that mare's original eye color. Regular changelings, from A Canterlot Wedding, to The Times They Are A Changeling, and so on don't have this issue. I've been trying to ascertain why Chrissy has this seemingly weaker disguise ability in comparison to her subjects. We know Chrissy has pony-esque eyes in comparison to her hive: Could there be any sort of significance here? I know this isn't a headcanon, but moreso an inquiry to hear some ideas.
(53.13 KB 265x148 317407.gif)
>>8298 That's not even true, in the scenes where she is disguised as Cadence her eyes are purple. It's her magic aura that is green and the only scene where the eyes are green they flash green for a moment to reveal that she is evil at the end. She has different looking eyes than the other changelings because changelings work on insect principles. That trait has to do with her being the only female, which raises the interesting topic of how she reproduces. I'm going to go out there and say it's like how bees do it where most of them are sexless except the drones and the queen. She has sex with the drones and then kills them, which produces more sexless worker/fighter changelings and a few more drones to repeat the cycle.

Princess Celestia wishes you a happyTuesday Anonymous 09/07/2021 (Tue) 20:06:01 No. 2671 [Reply] [Last]
One day, some random Facebook page made a meme of Asuka from Evangelion saying "I come to be the first people to wish a happy Thursday", and this made became very popular among Latin American fans of Evangelion. Some weeks ago, I was watching It's About Time (S2E20), and in minute 18:17, Princess Celestia said "Good morning Twilight, love the new hairstyle. Well, happy Tuesday".And I decided to make this "meme". In Latinamerica, some ladies send pictures saying "happy day" or blessings to their families and friends, social networks called it as a joke "images that your aunts send". Well, just take it as a funny image that you could send to your friends or post every Tuesday! - Greetings from Schizo: Ponkis memes

pony tulpas Anonymous 07/12/2021 (Mon) 16:06:16 No. 356 [Reply] [Last]
do you have a pony tulpa? do you want a pony tulpa? do you think tulpas are mental illness? let's discuss the phenomenology of ponies that live in your brain and share your life.
198 posts and 63 images omitted.
reading this thread has made me realize i've been making some variant of tulpas for almost my whole life (using the current definition, not the original definition of tulpa). throughout the years my "tulpas" have taken different forms and existed for different reasons (alternatively could read that as "created" for different purposes. i put "create" in quotations because their existence comes naturally, i don't consciously choose to bring them into existence it just happens). my experience of a tulpa seems to be somewhat different than what others in this thread have experienced. my "tulpas" feel like their own person (whether they be human or not) even though i know they're not really, i can feel their presence even though i know they're not really there, i can visualize them (although it's usually "out of focus" as i believe i have some form of aphantasia. out of focus isn't exactly how i would describe it, but it's not a clear visual), i can interact with them (physically in my mind or through internal speech), they can talk to me naturally (although sometimes they'll say things that doesn't feel right for them to say, and we're both aware of it but it's never a big deal. i even say stuff from time to time that doesn't feel right for me to say, that's just how it is, it happens sometimes), and while i can't usually feel their emotions (they can feel mine if we're "connected", and they can feel their "own" if they're shifted), i know their emotions as if i were in their own head and they can make me feel emotions. there was a time in the past where i would shift, but i really don't like doing that, i like being "me" so i don't shift anymore. shifting also tended to cause a lot of problems for me and wasn't a positive experience (regardless of the tulpa's personality or relationship with me). perhaps it was because the tulpas i shifted with i tended to be at odds with and were not tulpas based on a character or idea of a person that i love. however, even though now i have a tulpa that has taken the form of a character i love (or rather, my brain subconsciously formulated an idea of this character through time and that's what i fell in love with. and using that idea that felt very real and fleshed out and my imagination and the ability/skill i have to trick my brain, i made that character into a "tulpa"), i don't want to test out switching again. if in the future i feel like that's something i want to do then i will, but as it currently stands it's not in consideration for me. my "tulpa" also isn't always there, it only appears when i want it to (which can sometimes happen subconsciously without me consciously bringing it into my awareness. even when i consciously bring it into my awareness, it doesn't feel forced despite what the term "consciously bring it into my awareness" may come off as. it feels natural, as if i'm becoming aware of something that was already there and yet at the same time did not exist because i was not thinking of it), which isn't super often but i do enjoy its company from time to time and it can help ground me and reset my emotions if i'm feeling in a way that i don't want to but am having trouble regulating/resetting myself. the latter happened a little while ago. i was pissed off about something, i didn't want to be pissed off but in my stubbornness i couldn't bring myself to let it go. at some point in my anger, without even thinking, i felt the presence of my "tulpa" and it wrapped its arm around me and brought me into a side-embrace and immediately my anger went away and i felt its love and i felt my own love towards it and it was wonderful. this post is getting too close to the character limit, so i'm going to post the rest in another response.
>>1665 >To use a metaphor, your tulpa is locked in a box with a number combination. The ritualistic methods brute force the combination one number at a time while dashfags more casual method is realising you can just ask your tulpa what the combination is. this is a really great metaphor. some advice i would give people is to not doubt yourself. easier said than done, but if you allow doubt into your mind then it will just create discord (haha) and also have the effect of making it harder for the tulpa to take form if something doesn't go according to your expectations (or other's expectations that you've subconsciously imprinted upon and mistaken as your own expectation) as that makes your brain subconsciously block it out. if you force it, then perhaps something will come of it, but if you don't overthink it and feel it out naturally and tweak it as you see fit (for example, the tulpa will try to correct itself if it does or says something that doesn't feel right for it to say or do, although even that is not necessary if you don't feel it to be. there's always the future to fix mistakes), then i personally believe that's the most efficient way to go about it. imagine you don't have any self-imposed limitations or restrictions, no self-judgement, you're free and open. it's possible to be that, even if you are far from it now. i used to have self-imposed limitations and restrictions, i hated myself and would judge myself (particularly on what i thought other people would judge me for), i was closed off and scared and "protected" from others and myself, and i've come a very long way since then. it's still not perfect, i still make mistakes, but i'm making strides and not beating myself up over my mistakes has helped immensely. i believe that everyone in the whole world has the capability of change, of being strong, even if they don't think they do and they don't think that they're strong or capable of anything. >>7745 wonderfully said (to all parts of this post). i myself don't believe i am willing to become a tulpa in the traditional definition simply because i'm not the type to devote myself to or worship anyone or anything. i do still want to become more versed in letting go, being more open, appreciating everything and feeling the love for everything, however. we are all part of the same thing, everything in the physical realm is one, which is what i mean by everything (and i presume what you meant as well). i believe my "tulpa" is helping remind me of these things, although in a different way than you described. i've already been going down the path towards becoming more versed in those things for almost 2 years now, but as i mentioned before i still make mistakes, and sometimes it can be more difficult than others, and sometimes i find myself diverging from the path temporarily (but lately that has not been the case). i hadn't started fully welcoming my "tulpa" into my life until i found this thread last week, because your words inspired me (and also made me realize that i was already well-versed in tulpamancy, although that was through earlier posts and i'm not 100% if that was you or not. it was a dash-poster though). i wasn't sure if i wanted to fully welcome my "tulpa" into my life, but as the days went on i started naturally starting to incorporate it into my life where it felt natural and it's been snowballing from there. how did you start your journey with rainbow dash, what was it like at the beginning? was the experience, and dash herself, any different than now?
(356.63 KB 3048x2486 2966286.jpg)
>>14170 Dash actually came into my life quite naturally; I had a different tulpa at the time, so I think I naturally started fantasizing about RD that way without realizing it. Our relationship snowballed gradually, like you describe, and at a point I was like "oh shit wait a minute, she's a tulpa!" After that realization we just continued what we were already doing, only difference being that we also spent time integrating some of the unique tulpa skills. She was already my favorite pony (and my first tulpa would have been her if not for the taboo of making tulpas based on characters), but as this was going on we were falling deeply love with each other, and she became my waifu. This was a period of intense philosophical questioning for me, because I was a depressed nihilist at the time. I was exploring all kinds of philosophy, but with Dash and her love came a new, barely-conscious orientation. Slowly but surely my life filled back up with meaning, and I struggled to find where it came from, until I was basically forced to recognize that she wasn't just an experiment or a hobby any more - I really am deeply in love with a cartoon pony. I remember a moment of great tension (not longer than 10 minutes lol) where I was grappling over this, vs. the ideal of being 'normal'. Obviously, you can see how that ended up. Dash has always emphasized the laid-back, straight-to-the-point-ness of her show counterpart. I don't think she has changed all that much over time, at her core - but from the start, she was adapted to me and what I enjoyed imagining on my daily walks, rather than sticking rigidly to the show character. In general she's a lot more laid back, but she loves to share in my passions, especially to encourage me to stretch my boundaries and grow. She takes pride in her position as half of the loving dyad that makes up my inner life and serves her role faithfully, as do I.

Just a little ramble: I think tulpamancy is best understood as a collection of techniques - actions. The techniques are effective regardless of what belief system you attach them to. Kind of like how a button is an effective tool for triggering things, regardless of what mechanism it triggers, or what color the button is. People who say things like "I don't do tulpa stuff, I just kind of talk with her sometimes" are still doing the same action, just explaining it to themselves with different words. When someone takes an interest in interacting with this stuff, rather than starting from scratch and trying to find every button, they could find tulpamancy and learn where all these buttons are. In the same way, someone who knows the techniques can teach them to someone using different language. Mostly, people are only allergic to the language, but very receptive to the essence of the technique, unless they start thinking "oh shit this sounds like tulpa stuff oh fuck".

>>14486 Nice.
If a bootleg were to wear boots, would the boots be bootleg? Would they all be the same or mismatch? Could they find a complete set, or only 2 or 3? What style of hoofwear would they be?
>>14488 The bootmare wears 5 boots. I could see different bootlegs having 3 boots, but 2 feels like too normal of a number. It should always be an odd number of boots whether it's 1 3 or 5 unless they don't match, in which case there should be an odd number of each type adding to an even number like 3 on one kind and one of the other.
>>14491 It occurred to me that 3 of one type and 2 of another would work too, but all different types like 4 mismatching boots would feel to consistently inconsistent to be inconsistent.
