I have been having cunneckshin troubles. To pass the time, I have been working very hard. ....Working very hard at re-watching the entire Death Note series.
I forgot how good it is. Goddamnit. It's so good. God. I'm obsessed all over again. I've even made some new Death Note comics. I'll be posting them soon.
Now, before I tell you a story about something that happened to me the other day, I want to show you this cool little thing I have found called formspring.me. What it is, it's a question/answer website. What you do is, you ask people questions...and then what they do is...is...they answer. ...Geddit?
Here is my one: http://www.formspring.me/Slinkers
What you can do is, you can ask me questions in this website. Then what I can do is, I can answer your questions. What this means is, my inbox will be less clogged up with questions, which also means that you are more likely to get a response from me. See how it works? Do you see? I can see, but can
Braid Tutorial- Photoshop and SAI FriendlyThis is possible in PS and SAI. In sai you will need pen tool and marker/water. In photoshop two brushes. One for strands and a soft brush like below where it says 6, 19 and 19. The first three brushes displayed:Braid Tutorial- Photoshop and SAI Friendly3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First draw a line in the direction you want your braids to be in. Curved or straight.
Next draw a thick diamond shape, boxy if possible. Then from about halfway attatch another diamond shape.
Continue this all the way down your guideline. You will end up with something like this below.
Colour a flat base. The midtone of your braid and reasons why will be mentioned as we go.
If you are a cell-shader this tutorial will give you an idea on what to do but this is more aimed at realism and semi-realism but ask for help if you want to see this in other styles. Moving on.

How I almost had the coolest thing in my basement.So I was walking down the tunnel at the Oval last night and I saw a flyer and standing next to the flyer was a team. It basically said: "Adopt a Hockey Player." No, really. It's an entire team. It came with a phone number so OF COURSE I immediately call them.How I almost had the coolest thing in my basement.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
ME: "You're getting rid of hockey players?"
Them: "Um. No. We're looking for host homes for the players. They just need their own room, a place to shower and do laundry, and food available for them."
ME: "You mean I can put a hockey team in my basement?"
Them: "Well, at least two, and upwards of four."
ME: "Four WHOLE hockey players?"
Them: "Oh don't worry, we'll compensate you for them."
ME: "Let me get this straight, you'll pay me to keep four hockey players in my house?"
Them: "And just to clarify, you just need to keep the fridge stocked. They eat a lot. But you don't have to actually cook for them."
ME: "So you'd pay me to have a hockey team in my house, and

Carring on from yesterdays tutorial with panelling.
In the panel you intend to use for you building or 3D object use the tool shown in the red square. Options will appear though I hid mine for now to show you what the 3D plane looks like. When you select the tool click and drag to the borders of your panel.
Now the properties panel will open for what you wish to put in this area. This can range from guns to motor bikes to housing and city scapes. The best part however is that you can build your OWN 3D objects to place in here. I'm going to show you how to arrange in perspective, change to line art only or line art and toning. Before I go on this is for any trolls:
I am not endorsing cutting corners or showing how to be lazy. Manga studio allows you to be a one artist team. This is go
Testing Tutorials - Baking Powder tecnique!I've been really curious about this tecnique shared by Shacchan - see this journal for the instructions - and finally today I've managed to give it a tryTesting Tutorials - Baking Powder tecnique!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was fun, althought a little messy. I just need to try some more to find the perfect dosages!
I mixed some light brown clay with about an half of water and an half of Fimo liquid, until I got a creamy thing (as Shacchan explained, it should look like a glaze). Then, I added the baking powder to the clay, proportion as shown, and mixed them:
I made a baking tin with an aluminium foil (I didn't have anything to wrap the aluminium around, that's why it looks so weird! ) and poured the clay in it (well, I poured it all over my worktop too! ). I baked for about 10 minutes.
This is what the clay looks like, after it's baked. Gotta admit it looks anything but good
The big moment! Seems like it worked - but I'm thinkin

1. So, he's all happy, right?
2. While I posture myself, I shake the bed a little. Here's a perfect timing picture of his reaction:
3. A few seconds later…he began wailing
4. After getting off the bed and making him not cry anymore, I set him down on the bed. This is how he looked at me:
This wasn't the first time he flashed at me. I swear! Remember the journal from yesterday? He got mad when I woke him up for a few pictures. While Dolly was holding him, he stared at her with the WTF face. Who here thinks that he will turn out to be Karkat?

Manga Studio Walkthrough: Part 3- Wavy Text- TextWavy text, speech bubbles, custom speech bubbles, outlined text. TEXT GALORE! Yes this one is covering Text 8D I always see that someone uses photoshop for wavy text even though manga studio can do it or they use photoshop for that white outline but in manga studio it's a matter of a click of a button I will show you how.Manga Studio Walkthrough: Part 3- Wavy Text- Text3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I will show you also how to auto screentone speech bubbles for that dark foreboding feeling.
Click on the text tool, it's the icon that looks like the letter A. Click on your art work in the panel area you wish to use text. The properties panel will appear as above. Where I have pointed out in red, tick for out line. Change the number up or down for the thickness of the white outline.
Tick and adjust the other options for other effects. Now for the speech bubble click where I marked in red the tab called Dialogue Balloon Settings.

I am an unawares perverted idiot.So I'm at the press today running off a bunch of prints for the team and as each one comes off and is nicely trimmed they are handed to me to stuff into a portfolio so they don't get damaged on the way to the rink. The folder I was using was exactly 11x14 as were about 90% of the prints. This made for a tight squeeze and led to my many frustrated exclamations of "Oh my god, will you just get inside already," as well as "No, it's not too tight, you will fit," and several variations of "There you go, that's it, just slide right in nice and smooth," and the eventual thrilling, "YES!"I am an unawares perverted idiot.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Needless to say the entire printing office was staring red-faced and open-mouthed and I was so engaged in my work that it took me several portfolio-stuffing minutes to realize this...and why.
My post office already likes to harass me thanks to a crazy Canadian who likes to send me sexual things for the holidays and LISTS THEM ON THE CUSTOMS LIST.

Pregnancy Update!Hello guys, so I just want to tell you a quick pregnancy update! I am currently 8 months pregnant! Can you believe that? I am extremely huge right now and can't see my feet at all. I went to get a 32 week ultrasound a few days ago and the doctor said that he (the baby) is currently 7 lbs. After he is born, I will be off of school for a year.Pregnancy Update!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have also gotten a new due date, too. The doctors definitely say it is not February 17, but instead February 8. We also picked a new middle name instead of Dmitriy. Dolly didn't think Dmitriy went well andI got bored with it. So, his new middle name is Sage. Yes, I said it. I think it sounds well with the name Viktor rather than Dmitriy with it.
I packed my hospital bag already and know what I will bring. Most people bring bottles with them, but I don't need one when I got boobs. When he is born, I will show you pictures and write information. Here is the information I will use:

This means new deviants can no longer join this giveaway because I'm going to pick the winner in the next few hours. I will do this fairly, by tossing everyone's name into a hat (people who've drawn my oc will have their names tossed in twice). Yep, the old fashion way. And then it's reaping time, á la Hunger Games style.
Please keep in mind that we all live in different time zones. So I will announce the winner as soon as my clock hit's midnight (January 4th). So it may not be January 4th in your country yet or maybe it has been for a few hours but I don't think anyone will care that much I do this to be sure I will not miss out on Deviantart's offer of giving away a free membership. That would be so stupid XD

Moonblog #22 - Rose, Watchers and Pageviews!Hi guys! Almost done with my hiatus! I've been plugging away trying to recover. I've had a few health hurdles that I can't describe on here (lady part issues, truly, I will gross out male viewers and we don't want that!) and I have been kind of bedridden trying to rest enough. I still may need a surgery to fix an issue but I will be alright. We'll hope it doesn't get to that point. More importantly, let's discuss some important topics!Moonblog #22 - Rose, Watchers and Pageviews!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, first off, Ms. Rose is doing wonderfully. She is two weeks old today! She is putting on weight and keeping me, Sue and Tim up all night with crazy newborn ANTICS. Phoebe and Miranda are adjusting well. Phoebe is a tad jealous but I think with some patience she will see that Rose is no replacement for her. Miranda really likes being a big sister so far and is helping me with all sorts of things like grabbing diapers and singing to the new baby. I am so blessed to have my family. I love them all dearly.
