TransgenderSo ... yeah ... Finally ... Im here writting this <3Transgender2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I will explain a little all this .. whole process and how many times had thought of doing this ...
Before I birth, my father always wanted a boy in the family .. (at the end we were 3 girls) I been the first to born, so...my father had insisted on treating me like a boy, football ... cars ... I think the only Barbies I had were for my grandmother, even that I never got to play with them a while. Finally I grew up with these hobbies, especially football, and my behavior wasn't very feminine, in fact, I always was called "tomboy" and I ignored them...yes, I was in my "yupi" world you know x'D... and later it wasn't only football.. basketball too. I wasn't very good at school x'D
The fact is that at age 14, I lost my "father". Since I was little I was always very close to my grandparents and i live in his house since then, my parents and I have never been so close, my grandparents are my "parents" .. and .. when I lost
Details on the Cassandra Cain Black Bat outfitDon't mind this journal entry, I'm mainly typing this up to reference to when I upload some good photo's after Fan Expo on Saturday.Details on the Cassandra Cain Black Bat outfit3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My main references for Cass' Black Bat were from Red Robin 25 http://static.tumblr.com/yl0t4fw/j7Om0cetj/red_robin_25.jpg (Can we just have more stories of Cass and Tim working together please? You know... if DC ever actually BRINGS CASS BACK?) and Gates of Gotham.
I'm planning to do Cass' Batgirl outfit as well (I'm so excited!), but my sewing skills are really lacking, and so I wanted to practice by sewing Black Bat first (easier, in my opinion).
So here are some details on the costume:
I've actually been trying to grow my hair out, since I've always had it at shoulder length or shorter, so I decided against cutting my hair for this.
Also, I prefer using wigs whenever I cosplay.
I pretty much just bought a simple black wig, and cut and styled it.
At the moment, I have to restyle it, as I'm unsatisfied with how it looks. :/
Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get a lot of questions on how waselreins and I did the body makeup for our demon sisters cosplays. So here I'll tell ya'll how we did it, in addition to the whole story about the limo entrance. With pictures!!
On Saturday morning, I woke up at 5 AM to get ready for Kneesock. The limo was going to pick us up at 12:45 PM and I had to help the others get ready so I woke up the earliest to do as much of myself as I could. After the necessary prepping (shower/wash face/brush teeth/moisturize) I put in my contacts and wig cap first.
I used Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint in red for my face and ears. I was told afterwards it's pretty bad for your skin so next time I'm gunna use Kryolan or Mehron, but for Fanime Ben Nye worked perfectly fine for me. Here's a bit more info on it here: http://stageandtheatermakeup.com/bnmagiaq.htm
Instead of water to spray onto the red makeup I used LiquiSet and a foundation brush to apply it to my face.

5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long.

1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader

The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.3I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. This is part 2 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (http://www.taughtbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concenThe Three problems with how we learn art: pt.31 year ago in Personal More Like This

When I was about 13, I came home from school and saw my older sister on the computer. I asked her when Mom was going to be home cause I needed her to sign my folder for my teacher. My sister just shrugged and said.
'She's at the hospital.'
I stopped and asked my sister why she was there and I was told, ' She got sick or something and had to have surgery.' I freaked out. I wanted to go to the hospital, I wanted to make sure my mom was okay and my sister told me she would be back in two days and stop freaking out. HOW CAN I?! Well I spent those two days waiting for my mom, praying she was okay until she returned.
When the two days went by, I ran home and found my mom sitting in the living room looking worn out and sleepy and I rushed at her to hug her. She had blankets and ice packs on her chest and
The GapsMuch as the Victorians would never have envisioned the coming of the Martians, none outside of the Timecasters had any notion of what was impending; and the Flux knew this. They planned accordingly, for this was a war of proxies. In their eyes, they imagined that the Temporians were much as they were; a parasite, a symbiote attached to a larger entity. So as the Immortal Empire hosted the Ascendancy, the logic went, so worked the Temporians through the Dark City Imperium. In their eyes, this was akin to a brush war, though a brush war that was rapidly escalating into something else. With their name spreading in the galactic far east, the Ascendancy felt an increasing calling to a more compelling sort of action; it was only through the petitions of Dassus, who himself was urged on by the hopes and fears of the Union of World’s emperor, that had prevented Dorin from conducting a suicidal charge of extermination across an unaware galaxy.The Gaps1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de

"Still no word from command?"
Admiral Salvek watched from her command chair as her communications officer fiddled with his console for a few moments. He turned, his face grim.
"Nothing since we picked up that wide-beam, Ma'am: "protect the Empire and its people. When in doubt, use initiative. Further orders will be forthcoming. If possible, regroup with loyal fleets."
The order had been signed with the tac-signature of the Supreme overlord himself.
And what did he mean by "loyal" fleets?
"What do you think?" the young admiral asked, turning to face Faison, her Scuridaean XO. The small gray Squirrel-like creature sat on an elevated platform installed specifically for him. His tail twitched in agitation: his race was known for short tempers. And violence.
"I think there's been a coup."
There. It was out in the open now.

"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

Superweapon Entry Form: The CameramenName:Superweapon Entry Form: The Cameramen11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Despite the plural form, The Cameramen is one single weapon, albeit with several separate elements.
The most important of these elements is a milisecond pulsar with approximately 37 solar masses named "False Sovereign" by the occuptants of the system centered around it. False Sovereign emits enormous ammounts of radiation as an object of its nature is wont to do.
Orbiting False Sovereign at approximately 0.3 AU of distance in a highly eccentric orbit, aligned with the emission beams of the pulsar, eight large stations can be found.
Five of these stations, shaped approximately like the net of a tesseract 420 meters in lenght, posses gigantic whipple shield-like antennae designed to be able to redirect the emissions of the pulsar in the 270-250GHz range, while polarized so as to let most other frequencies through. The cruciform antennae are placed along kilometer-long masts made of a light lattice structure. The lattice, like the b

Good, you opened this journal. Don't worry, no art theft shenanigans have transpired that triggered this entry. I merely want to share my thoughts on "ripping off" and "originality" with you, both as an artist and novelist who's been on the Internet for 12 years.
This is not a rant - it's strictly comical, but also educational. I'm known for my laid-back, funny and matter-of-fact attitude
I'll give you a different point of view today, because if there is something I despise more than art theft, it's people accusing others of it. Anti art theft ninjas, also known as: people who have likely not had enough science in school. They often have no compelling evidence. They often have wrong evidence (even worse). They often do it on a whim, a feeling. And they rarely do it silently, rampaging publicly instead, thus driving a witch hunt.

That one sentence made everyone in the fleet freeze.
“I'm counting 8 signatures, edge of system and closing fast. 3 Cruisers 4 corvettes and... I'm reading something huge my lord” The man said in awe. It was understandable. Many people hadn’t even set eyes on the Nakai or one of their legendary ships. They were stories mostly, nothing more. However the time had come when old stories must resurface. In fire.
Myric was ready to make sure these stories stayed as such. Here in the deep void of space the 1st Emperors Own was here to stop them. Over a thousand ships of many many races the fleet was assembled in a defensive formation. Here lay renowned ships from all over Union space. But in the centre lay the sleek triangular form of the Interceptor the Emperors Personal flagship. However unlike the other ships around it, it looked more Nakai than human.
