How to make BJDs?Recently I'm asked often to teach people how to make BJDs. So I decided to put all the info in one place so I could give only one link.How to make BJDs?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
BJD (Ball-jointed doll) is a complex creation that consists of many parts and is strung with elastic. The joints are based on the balls (spheres) mostly or on their modifications. Good BJD in my opinion is not only properly stylized but also has a well thought-out jointing system that allows to hold a wide range of poses. Every type of joint serves a certain purpose.
BJD construction requires a lot of research: trial and error or usage of free knowledge from the open sources. So here the links list goes:
* Aimi-doll, a very good tutorial in Japanese: making a BJD from the scratch. http://www.aimi-doll.com/howto/
Many artists started from there, me included. I use this method of sculpting the head while making realistic BJD heads that have a real or 3D prototype.

Monster High doll commissionsHELLO LOVELY FOLLOWERS ~~~~Monster High doll commissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those on Etsy, I have a listing here to make things a bit easier
I've been thinking of taking doll commissions, because I could really use the money and it'd be nice to see if I could do it well enough to keep doing it, plus it might give me a bit of inspiration.
I would like to limit it to Monster High original characters though, so I'm calling all you MH lovers to lend me your imaginations and let me do up your OC.
Please read the following VERY carefully if you're interested.
There would be several options.
-The first would be a basic doll, which would include just the faceup.
-The second option would be the faceup, plus added hair (like streaks ADDED to the original doll's hair, etc).
-The third would be the faceup, plus a complete reroot - i.e an entirely new head of hair - I will send you the site where I get my doll hair from and you c

Pageviews, Watchers, and Popularity on dA I know this horse has been beat to death (and by beat to death, I mean guides have been made on the subject) but I feel the need to insert some words of compassion rather than to simply say “you shouldn’t care about becoming popular here, it doesn’t matter” or “follow these steps and you’ll be dA elite overnight!” The fact of the matter is we all long to be loved and liked in just about everything we do. We all want acceptance and validation from our peers. And when that acceptance and validation is nowhere to be found, the feeling is really not great at all. We all know that feel bro.Pageviews, Watchers, and Popularity on dA1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Please keep these guidelines in mind while designing your Tamer.
Can be male or femaleAges must be within 8-18 years oldHas to be completely human (no anthros or vampires or mutant swamp monsters)Can be any nationality (please make sure they would at least have some access to a computer)Language doesn't matter while in the Digital World. There is a program that translate everything so everyone speaks one language according to what their first language is. (ex: tamer-a speaks Japanese, tamer-b speaks Russian. If tamer-b says something to tamer-a, tamer-a will hear the words in Japanese.) Your tamer can speak and be from where ever you want without any language barriers. Most Tamers live in the Digital World. They can go back to the Real World (if the connection is fixed, currently it's broken) but Digimon cannot go with them.

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

10 Tips to Improve your ArtThis is a short summary of the – in my opinion – most important points I found all over the internet, while studying what it needs to improve your drawing and painting skills. I hope it will be helpful to many aspiring artists!10 Tips to Improve your Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Learn the basics
Perspective, composition, color theory, anatomy, lighting & shading – this may be boring, but it's very important. You have to understand the basics to have a foundation to build on.
Also start with realism. You can simplify it to comics or Manga once you have mastered the fundamentals.
2. Have the right attitude
Don't rely on talent alone. Expensive equipment or an art school won't automatically make your artworks brilliant. Don't expect anyone to teach you, but study on your own. You have to work hard to become a good artist. Don't give up, if you really want it.
3. Start early and have a plan

I'm very picky when it comes to designs, and I know it won't be easy to choose, there are already many good designs. And the contest is not over yet, I'm still expecting to see other great entries!

How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.How to beat procrastination (part 2)8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi
?Que sus parece un fanzine?No estoy proponiendo nada oficial, eh. Al menos aun no.?Que sus parece un fanzine?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Pero el caso es que me apetece hacer un fanzine, y como no estoy segura de poder acoplarme y encajar en ningún grupo fanzinero ya creado, he pensado que podría iniciar yo uno. Es decir, unir a un grupo de dibujantes para crear entre todos un tomo con historias autoconclusivas.
Creo que es una buena iniciativa para principiantes, para empezar a acostumbrarse a trabajar con fechas de entrega y dar lo mejor de uno mismo para dar acabados cada vez más profesionales. Quiero experimentar el ambiente de los salones en las esquinas fanzineras. Y conocer a otros dibujantes que, como yo, les gustaría dedicarse al mundillo de la ilustración/cómic/animación/etc. Pero lo más importante, simplemente me apetece escribir y dibujar historias y que la gente las lea.
He leído por ahí que a menudo se pierde dinero con estos proyectos, y que es imposible (o prácticamente imposible) tener ganancias

Let's talk Anime. XDWow, yesterday and today...I've actually sat down to just watch Anime. Lol, it is cray.Let's talk Anime. XD1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, a friend of came over my house a couple a days ago and she wanted to watch Anime stuff, since she's a bigger Anime fan than I am. And I dunno, after that, I just kept watching Anime.
I've continued watching "Lucky Star". So far, I'm on episode 17. I really like that show. My faves are Konata and Kagami. I'm actually drawing Konata too!! And I'll be drawing the rest of the girls too. And Akira on "Lucky Channel" is insane as heck.
I decided to watch some more Animes afterwards. I've just watched 2 episodes of "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" and that one seems interesting. Definitely drawing Haruhi and the guy Kyon together.
I also watched the first episode of "Free!". I was pretty skeptical about that Anime, since I've seen tons of Yaoi junk of it around here. -_______-; It's not in the Yaoi genre, but I did hear certain things they say can be ta
Getting to know the Guild Leaders (important!)So, during the upcoming Event 1, you'll meet the leaders in there. Some of you might show them speak, and same for later events/missions. The thing is that none of the leaders are shown how they speak, so will perhaps be a bit hard, even if they have written out personalities. One idea is to perhaps interview them. (I have upcoming interviewer digimons even) Either interview them one by one, in pair as guild or all of them once. So by interviewing, you'll ask them questions. Not as your team as they haven't met the leaders yet, but as a general question for them. I will draw it as a comic, there the leaders are shown answering the questions.Getting to know the Guild Leaders (important!)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So wanna hear here if it sounds like a good idea! It's very important, as it have with future events to do. So I hope some will ask them questions. I'll probably write questions for them to answer as well, and also ask Pikuna's digimons questions, and other way round. You can ask as many as you like, and question will be answered depending on

First the hotel room was nice...But the elevators sucked. Since it took like 20 mins to get on one then wait for a bit in a cramped elevator to get to our room (which was the 17 floor)
But anyways back to the ohayocon. It was fun, but i have to say it wasn't as fun as last year was so sad face. but still had some fun things to do and got great pictures to post. Omg and bought many fun stuff there as well. I'm happy about that. Got my a Sebby-Chan plushie! <33333 hehehe and got yaoi! Cause what anime freak wouldn't get that ( a bunch of people wouldn't ffff)
Though some parts stinked. Like the lines for stuff seem to get longer and longer...Hell the rave had a line that covered a whole floor. There seem to be less interesting panels to go to this year as well and some of the main events weren't too great ether. But all and all it was still good, but of course, there gonna have to be some drama. Some with my friends

I really want Pokémon X or Y. But simply don't have the cash for it and I do not own a 3DS. Any way it will cost me about 200 euro's if I want them.
So I was thinking to raise the money by doing sketch commissions. I can make these in the train while going to my work, so I can finish them quicker than normal commisions.
I'll make a realistic version of the Pokémon you like, what ever pose you like. You can also tell me on what kind of real life animals you want the Pokémon to be based on.

As such, I'm going to make one complete, constantly updated directory here.
Feel free to make your requests here as well. Just leave me the name of the series and the character (they have to be chibi though, they fit better in the folders lol). I actually prefer to do sets as opposed to singles, so don't be shy in requesting more than one. I reserve the right to decline (though I likely won't without good reason.) I can't guarantee they'll get done quickly or at all, but no harm in trying, eh?
