PSG Transformation ChantsPanty and Stocking Anarchy's transformation chant:PSG Transformation Chants3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oh wicked spirit born of a lost soul in limbo;
Receive judgement from the garb of the Holy Virgin;
cleansed of worldly impurites;
return to Heaven and Earth.
Oh pitiful shadow lost in the darkness;
Oh evil spirit born of those drifting between Heaven and Earth;
May the thunderous power from the garments of these holy delicate maidens strike down upon you with great vengeance and furious anger
Shattering your loathsome impurity and returning you from whence you came.
Repent you motherfucker!
Scanty and Kneesock's transformation chant:
May the Earth shatter;
May the oceans dry;
May the sun extinguish itself;
Grant upon us the power of our Lord Satan in Hell
We are demons!
High-class Commander Demons!

SPACE DANDY?Space Dandy is a new animated tv series By Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop/Samurai Champloo). It's a pretty ground-breaking show in that it's the first japanese animated TV series with a world-wide premiere (starting in America FIRST). It's personally my favorite, 2D animated tv series airing in the states right now.SPACE DANDY?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As a consumer of animated content on TV for decades, I (like many I'm sure) am quite used to getting quality stuff finished and packaged, so I can take things things like SD for granted. However, as a Tv animation series producer/director, I know how incredibly challenging & difficult it is to produce/direct a single episode from a hand-drawn, animated action or comedyTV series (be it 11 minutes format or 22 minutes). So watching what Watanabe and his crew are doing from a production/planning/execution standpoint is a lesson in humility for me. This is high-level stuff for a TV budget and it makes a me a little envious that the guys across the pond have i

Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with MistGetting the camera out, and the scarf, hat and gloves, and heading into a misty morning or hazy evening can result in the best kind of photographs. Atmospheric, moody and ultimately a fine example of whatever current season you're in - these kinds of shots present themselves at awkward moments so it's vitally important to be prepared. In previous years I've got up at the crack of dawn and ventured out with all the excitement of a young child on their first day of school - only to come home with a grazed knee and broken felt tip pens. Or rather, washed out, blurred and altogether rubbish photographs.Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with Mist3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fog is a popular mist - we often get confused and just term it all as fog or all as mist. It's not quite like that. It's all about the visibility, if we can see less than 1km through it then it's fog. If we can see between 1 - 2 km then it's mist. So when is the best time to catch these ground level clouds at their best? Fo

Bursting bubblesI read an article earlier today about Google+ and it contained some quotes which I found quite thought provoking.Bursting bubbles4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Could we find ourselves posting in what has become a bubble, sharing work only with people who are predisposed to like it? Is it meaningful if you post a new photo and a circle of your fans tell you how wonderful it is? Does it become a bit like preaching to the converted?"
I know this article was in relation to Google+, but I wonder how many of us have became like this at deviantART. I see people claim they are bored with deviantART, or that they don't like how things are here, so the sign up for other communities and networks, post their entire deviantART gallery, and then ask their friends to join and do the same. I get that some people prefer a smaller audience, and that some people crave recapturing their early glories. I also get that sometimes people disagree with things here and their way of dealing with it is to deactivate or put images into storage as a wa

How to make a viking dressI used to be a part of one history reenactment group some time ago. Such groups basically reconstruct elements of daily life of people from a selected time period; my group was interested in early Middle Ages, from the 8th to the 11th century, from the Eastern and Northern Europe. Personally, I used to reconstruct a viking woman from today's Sweden areas. Most of you will be shocked, but vikings were not half-naked barbarians with horned helmets. They had no horned helmets. Really.How to make a viking dress3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Anyway, my favourite part of reenactment has always been all the suit making. Buing materials, planning, cutting, sewing (hand sewing!), embroidering. Then, wearing. Generally, viking clothes are very easy to make, though I admit that the materials aren't the cheapest, if you want to make it as much accurate historically as you can.
Our goal: a simple dress, no emboirdery. This is actually my first viking dress I've ever made.

There is a whole category filled with a lot of unique stamps. Some are animated, some are static. The original size is 99x56px, but it varies depending on the preferences of each artist. They can be round, they can be square, they can be heart-shaped or whatever else your heart desires. Except the newer modern stamps, they usually have a transparent typical stamp border, like their real life relatives which makes it easy to differentiate them from avatars or other smaller artworks.

4 Kinds of StorytellingHere's an old journal from 2010 about storytelling. Because I have a lot more readers these days, I think I'm going to start reposting some of my earlier posts for my newer audience. So for you old timers, feel free to skip.4 Kinds of Storytelling2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In full disclosure, I slightly edited this journal to make it a little more balanced (while also fixing a ton of typos).
I feel like the word "storytelling" gets thrown around a lot in our industry. Yet when I look out there at some comics, I don't always see a lot of evidence for it.
It feels like people in comics pros--myself included--often use the word only because we feel like we're supposed to. Over the years enough professionals have been accused of being poor storytellers to the degree that everyone is now afraid of being a pinup artist as opposed to a bona fide storyteller. But it's not enough just to claim you're a storyteller.

First UTAU to VOCALOID Announced: Macne NanaMacne Nana (first name Nana, Macne also means "Mac Sound") is going to be the first UTAU to become a VOCALOID. Her voice provider is Ikezawa Haruna who also voiced Macne Nana Petit and has done numerous voice acting roles for animes as well. For those of you that don't know Macne Nana she was created to be a singing synthesizer for Mac since VOCALOID was not Mac compatible, she worked on GarageBand only. UTAU users figured out how to port her voicebank into UTAU to get her to sing. She has a 3 sisters and a father; Macne Nana Petit (she has a form called Sasayaki), Macne Coco (White), Macne Coco (Black), and Macne Papa. Soon after the years passed Nana and Petit received a 2S update which vastly improved her vocal quality. Now, since VOCALOID NEO was just released (which is the only VOCALOID system compatible with Mac) it has been announced that Macne Nana will become a VOCALOID!

We Want YOU!
I've been talking with a lot of friends in the UK who are super excited about the upcoming London DevMeet, and I figured, "Why not have an Alberta DevMeet?"
I've been chatting with stuck-in-suburbia and a few other deviants, and so far, this is what we've got:
Where? Prince's Island Park, Calgary, Alberta. We'll be gathering just north of the River Cafe.
When? August 25th, 2012, at 10am
Who? Any and all deviants from Alberta and possibly surrounding provinces who are able to make it (if you have a passport and wanna come up from Montana, that's cool, too)
We chose mid-to-late-August because we want to avoid people having to choose between the Stampede and/or Capital X, and the DevMeet; and it's the end of summer, so why not go out with a bang?

Take your art to higher lever in 4 simple steps!
For people who are serious about drawing and want to make career in art! And for me to stop getting questions on how to practice, or how do you get better
Are you stuck and don't know how to carry on making great art?
You just want to draw better?
If an answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you might find this interesting...
Since the only thing I ever acknowledged myself good at is getting better I decided to share a couple of tricks.
I truly believe it works in every single case.
It's true. You can get out now or shut up and listen and get better.
(oh and do I need to mention that you need to draw a lot to get better?
I didn't draw a lot and still got better because I followed the steps listed below. But yeah, may not work without drawing a lot...)
Step 1. Honesty.
Be aware of your own limitations. They're usually bigger than you really think, despite what people say. I won't be talking about fals
