My first cosplay..The story of how I got my first cosplay is one filled with.. Well.. Unlucky happenings, a bit of jealousy and also a lot of fun.My first cosplay..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think I've been wanting to cosplay for like.. two years now? Yeah, I've been an otaku for quite a while now, but the 'cosplay' thing never got me anywhere. Why? Because I never knew how to get a costume. Besides.. I didn't know who I should cosplay.
I had watched various animes, but my favorite characters were either boys or.. I didn't like the clothes. I'm not quite able to cosplay as boys either. I didn't want to cosplay people who were just wearing a school uniform or anything of the like, I wanted something special. In the end, I started to think of Kagamine Rin. She's my favorite vocaloid after all. (Next to Len though.) But I didn't like the fact that you could actually see her legs and her belly, so I just couldn't decide if I wanted to do her or not.
At the same time, I was thinking about Crona. As 'he' wasn't a boy or a girl for sure, it was alrigh
Why you no sequel?Hello, everyone!Why you no sequel?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm making this journal to clear some stuff as well as give you some updates.
First off, I'm very happy on the reception of the finale. I have given it a week to simmer and most of the feedback is positive. I was worried uploading this because the beginning and the ending of a story are what make and leave the biggest impression. The main reoccurring complaint I see is that the ending was dragged out. Really this was intentional and directive intention. More often than not I see complaints of rushed ending and no closure so I tried to make sure I closed everything with a nice little bow. For example, look at Return Of The King, there is still almost 45 minutes left in the movie after the Ring is destroyed and it's revered as one of the best trilogies of all time- not comparing my work to it of course, but I was influenced by it. Long story short, I rather have some people complain it was too long rather than it was rushed. You could always just close it as soon as tria

It was moved because at least 7 of my videos were being blocked do to copy right reasons, i even got a notice that, if i play any more songs I will lose alot of posting privileges. Also i always wanted an intro to my video as well as getting all my thumbnails to look professional so i thought id start fresh in this new channel. Hope you guys check it out. All the videos from my old channel will be added gradually, i just gotta go through them and fix the sound tracks add intros etc. The difference from my old channel and the new is, the new one has "THE" in it.

Underdogs who get ripped offI'm sure a lot of people get down and out about not getting views or favs. I'm probably down around I'd say 80%. And I know why. It's because I stopped posting color animals and felines doing cool magic stuff.Underdogs who get ripped off6 months ago in Personal More Like This
On this note, it's rather easy to be popular on dA. Do something cool, and neat in color and be nice to everyone, even the bonafide jerks and hide your tracings and stealing well.
Of course not everyone popular does this crap. But a good amount does, a good amount meaning I feel it should be 0 but I already know 5 who does this out of the 100s I've seen. (I don't watch them though of course )
On this note if you see anyone on dA taking the easy way out on art who gets defensive or emo over their art, but ALSO causes you grief, just remember that they aren't being true to artistry. Anyone who does the drama llama over art isn't an artist imo.
That's why I'm a true fan of the underdogs on dA, especially the ones that get ripped off.

I've always loved to share my knowledge and feedback for free, but the unfortunate truth is that it's incredibly hard to do that when you're flat broke almost 100% of the time. So at least through SkillShare I can make money while providing you guys with even higher-quality learning resources. SkillShare isn't a live, real-time service. Instead, the classes are based around the production of videos and additional materials that you attack at your own pace. [Think DigitalTutors but... not expensive.] Then you work on projects that I assign and share them with the rest of the class, where I and your peers talk and offer feedback and help one another. It's supportive and collaborative!

I watch the life of the oldest sun die...
A black hole engulfing her slowly...
I feel for her....to die alone.....
I wish I could ease her strain....
Shooting stars fly past in groups of two...
Like guardians of the black sea...
They tell their queen her final goodbyes...
Her children surrounding her begin to shake....
Their empire slowly changes....
Its dead silent...yet there cries are all I can hear....
A tear runs down my cheek and turns to ice...
The final flashes of light slowly start to dim..
And rogue planets are all that remain....
Orphans with no mother...doomed to travel the same path until they to perish...
Holiday Card Project 2012Holiday Card Project 20121 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

Hello, this is Dan with an important message for all true Sonic fans...
So, I hear there is some kind of petition to remove Amy Rose from Sonic the Hedgehog.

First of all, they call her by her original name, "Rosy the Rascal," to try to give an effect that will get us to vote on this petition.
Then the fun begins.
First, they comment on her design.
"Amy's dress is very, very short. It shows alot of her arms and back."
Yeah, so? A lot of woman wear those types of dresses. Besides, if you want to change her design, why don't you just make a petition to change her design, instead of to GET RID OF HER COMPLETELY??? Besides, Rouge has boobs and a hot bod and isn't afraid to show them through that skin-tight suit of hers, but nobody cares do th

I am too untalented to make prints / artbook / adopts / comic / etc.Actually, the best time to do something you're bad at is when you're bad at it! Everyone starts playing piano when they're young and suck shit, but by the time they are older, they can play beautifully! You don't want to be that 30 yr old who doesn't know how to but wants to play the piano because he was too scared to make gross music in the beginning. This is the BEST time to start making a comic (for example) because it will help you improve in that area that you will need to be better at! How can you be better at making comics in 5 years if you never tried to learn formatting, text, thumbnails, character development / whatever you need? You will be in the same place you are 5 years from now
A Wonderous RevelationI was just studying for my Physics test tomorrow, when I discovered something amazing. We were working with Newton's Third Law of Motion (Action and Reaction Forces), and our book gave an analogy of 'you cannot touch without being touched.' This gave me a wonderous sensation. It's really quite beautiful.A Wonderous Revelation1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You cannot touch someone without being touched. This is true physically - if you touch someone, they are also touching you. This is rather obvious (not my eureka idea). However, this principle is also true... I don't know, emotionally? If you touch someone in a special way, you are inexplicably changed, touched, if you will. This explains why you feel so good after doing something kind for someone - the very act of kindness affects you just as much as it affects the other person. This is why you can hardly help but smile when someone smiles at you, unless you are already in a foul mood, in which case, your mood is still heightened a

Stylization and Avoiding Being an Art AssholeStumbled on an "anatomy blog" showcasing breakdowns of [mostly] bad art to highlight how broken their anatomy is. Which is fine, it can be a great learning tool and exercise, but finding obviously stylized work by master character designers getting shat on by amateur artists is...frustrating**.Stylization and Avoiding Being an Art Asshole2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Designs like these come from a shape-based theory of character design where anatomy doesn't matter as much as mood and implication. It's part of a design language stretching back to studios like Bauhaus and UPA.
If you're looking at something designed like Kim Possible* and going "HAHA THIS WORK IS SHIT LOOK THEIR HIPS ARE TOO LOW THAT'S NOT HOW PEOPLE ARE BUILT!" you are missing the point. THOSE designers aren't going for verisimilitude. Fidelty wasn't the point. The point is matching the feel of a character and making them match their world.
