These past few years, I've been seeing Indie games skyrocket around me while I still haven't done a thing for my own ideas.  While the games I'm seeing are usually made by people with experience, it feels like all these developers started out as teenagers and finally got enough experience to make the successful games they have now.  I'm in my mid 20s now, and I've been waiting to long.  Seeing the prototype for Indivisible (and seeing how close the art style is to my vision) is the final straw for me.  I want to start developing before it's too late. 

Me working with Garry's Mod and SFM I basically saw as 'practice' until I was ready for something bigger.  As much as I liked working with them, they aren't getting me anywhere.  Like I said, there's a point where if I don't start developing now, time is just going to keep passing by.   People who are now making games on Steam had plenty of time to develop skills on site like Newgrounds and even this site alone.  They're programming, art, and music has only got better and more successful while I only have the same basic knowledge from a few years ago.  And I HATE that.

It's time to start doing what I came here for, but I need help.  I obviously don't have the skills, experience or money to do literally everything myself.  But the biggest problem is, well, I don't really KNOW that many people, on the internet or off.  It seems like everyone knows everyone in the industry, which makes it feel like everyone's getting a head start and/or are learning off each other.  I don't really know what that feels like.  At the time of this, I have a little over 900 watchers, not bad for the minimal stuff I do, but nothing compared to the hundreds of thousands or even millions compared to actual artists here and on other sites.  I'm hoping if ANY of the 900+ of you or any users dropping by reading this knows anywhere to start, can offer advice, or lead me to somewhere where I can help with making indie games, it would mean everything to me.

TL;DR: I want to get into game developing, and am hoping one of you can point me in the right direction.

Hello there, I'm not too used to traditional drawing anymore, but I still like working with clay, video games, and the occasional photoshop. I'm hoping some of my ideas can contribute for something bigger, but for now, I'm grateful for all the watches and faves I get!

Yeah... I don't have a website, but you can view this for now.

[DL] Limestone Pie by Pika-Robo
[DL] Limestone Pie
Limestone Pie with an updated mane and tail!  Now, we already had a "Limestone" model for a while here.  www.deviantart.com/art/DL-Lime…  the thing is it was made using the mane I made for Tracy Cage and a few other existing pony parts.  Not that I mind, but although they are similar, they aren't really 100% the same.  Limestone is one of my favorite ponies so that's why I decided to give her an update that is -slightly- more show accurate than the existing one.  I left the original body and eyes though since they were perfect the way they were.  Hopefully no one minds me using it.  (A part of the mane for one of my models was used for the original after all...)

Rainbow's best costume yet!
Happy Halloween/Nightmare Night!  What's funnier than dressing up as Rarity?  Dressing up as Rarity in the sultriest outfit she (I) could find!  Could be worse; I almost used this one.

The Switch looks awesome!  But I wonder how those tiny controllers will feel with people with bigger hands.

I'm getting one, are you?

What's the problem, exactly?

The model's top part of the mouth is invisible so the bottom row of the teeth are the only one that is showing and I don't know how to fix it.

The only things I can think of is check the vmt files for missing or extra code or make sure you saved the textures right.
