Free programs include

Sumo Paint - sumopaint.com/app/
GIMP - www.gimp.org/downloads/
Fire Alpaca - firealpaca.com/en
SAI (100% free version) - ow.ly/4n2x8N
Paint.net - www.getpaint.net/index.html
Photoshop (free one month trial) - ow.ly/4n2xn1

Recommend SAI as the best one because it has the most customization options as well as easy to learn. Here as well is a copy of the description for tutorials of how to use these programs. Photoshop is something you can get cracked if you torrent (I've done it before myself) if you want a more permanent version. But the problem is most computers will think it's a virus and try to get rid of it.

The programs? Well, photoshop is... for about 400 bucks. ^^;; As for the others, no... I know that they all have layering options to some degree though.

Inkscape is mostly for vectoring. I've never heard of anyone using it to make a crystal pony. I guess it couldn't hurt to try? The Sumopaint app is what I recommend if you're just making a crystal pony on an already existing pony (aka pasting texture over pony) but for actually drawing it then SAI, Photoshop, Fire Alpaca.

Go ahead. ^^ People do it all the time, and it doesn't bug me. I just like being credited for it. o: So if you do use it, please just credit me in the description but you are free to make as many crystal adoptables as you want and sell em XD

Haha lately, I've been selling customs fairly well. ...Mostly because I undercharge for them. ;u; But, I'm so glad you like how she turned out! That's the first time I've REALLY used a crystal texture. ..Much less used it well, haha!

Well, it depends of course on how long it takes you to make them and how popular you are. For example I was working at BronyCon last year, and selling 5 to 10 minute sketches for 5$. I was selling inked pictures for 10$, colored for 15$ and colored + shaded for 20$. Because I was a small time artist, I had to keep those prices. But I was also going by how long it took me to make them. But digital art of course is a BIT different... and I'd say adoptables probably sell best between the 5 to 10 dollar range.

Well, I say that because I've been TOLD I undercharge for them...I only make 50 cents off each one, or 50 points. I don't charge more than $25-$30 for ANYTHING unless it's a BIG project, unless someone is kind enough to offer more. It takes me a few hours-a day or two to work on projects, depending on the complexity. The customs take a few hours, a a day or so at the most if I'm busy. 

But, I am very much a small time artist. I don't have much of a following, and until I made my prices as low as I have (Only about $5 for most things..), I didn't get a single commission/interest in my art at all. A lot of days, I feel like people only buy because it's so cheap. I know that's not the case, but it feels that way sometimes.

Hmm... I still think people would pay a little bit more. It's up to you of course. Getting followers / watchers is incredibly difficult and I only have 499 watchers after NINE years... >>;; I don't really TRY to get watchers is probably the big problem. But always advertise on more than one site. I tend to post things like that on Tumblr as well

I can understand that, I've been a member for 8 years. I only have 168 watchers. I post on Derpibooru, and Furaffinity as well. I also post a lot on Facebook in a number of MLP groups...That's honestly the only place I've gotten any sort of interest in my art, really. But, I know I'm not posting on Derpibooru anymore. Someone recently took a YCH I made, and photoshopped it unto someone else's art to claim I "traced it". So, after that nonsense, I'm know I'm not posting there anymore. But, I do want to make a Tumblr!

It involves selecting colors that you know will only change moderately when you change the file type to 16 color bitmap. You choose colors that will not register as the same color when you change the file type then you color in the blocks with colors, making all of the blocks of one shade one color. Then you change the file type to 16 color bitmap then back to a png(don't forget to do that part, if you do, you'll have wasted probably hours of work). You're also probably gonna have to resize it. This is a big file. Then you gotta clean up the edges of the blocks, that will no doubt have pixels of the gray tones around them. Then you can add your desired colors to each block, and vuala! You're done!

Yeah. Thankfully, though, once you do it once, you can just use that one over and over again with different colors!

Hello there! I just wanted to let you know of a small practice turned wallpaper I did using your texture. I also used a bit of it in an adopt on my other account for a certain theme.
