Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***
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.

Unpopular opinion? on Korra ep 05As part of my ongoing quest to be really nerdy, I'm going to oblige the people who sent me notes asking what I thought of "The Spirit of Competition" and what my fave Korra ship(s) are etc. Just a little warning: I'm probably not in the majority with my opinion on this episode, so...here's an opportunity to expand your horizons.Unpopular opinion? on Korra ep 052 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, I'd like to say that I am a HUGE fan of A:TLA and so far am liking LOK a lot. So take this as an individual episode critique, not a series critique. It's still too early for that with Korra.
So. Pema and Tenzin. A romance for the ages. That was sarcasm, in case you were wondering. With their relationship comes my first major problem with ep 05: the way the romantic elements were handled. Let's get this straight. Pema stole Tenzin away from the woman he was dating? And then she recommended to an emotionally confused, EXTREMELY tactless teenage girl that she do the same thing, without getting any of the background information? And nobody sees the pr

after incredibly long time, I met with my best friend Allerlei today - we visited ZOO Prague together we also gave each other Christmas presents - I was given very cute plushie fennec fox! his name is Aleek and he is very cute. I will sleep with him, cuddling with his ears I will take a photo of him later I gave Allerlei some little presents together with dA mug which i designed specially for her so nobody else on this world can has the same mug
We had fun, it was amazing to meet again
It made me happy
Only one bad thing: usually I wish we could be together for many many hours, but I was so freezing I really wanted to be back in the bus this time the temperature was not that low at all, but somehow, together with weather, it made me freeze. Nah.
But I am still very happy I saw my best friend
Thanks for Aleek, Allerlei

Why so much negativity? BE POSITIVE! :)Okay guys, I don't usually write journals for this group, but I've seen recent journals and comments from people about TJM and about if it's not going to be made, which are really, REALLY discouraging.Why so much negativity? BE POSITIVE! :)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Everything starts with the lastest Craig Bartlett's interview; in a part of it, Craig says that maybe it's not that bad if TJM is not made because that way fans can imagine their own ending and argue about it forever and stuff. Now some people have taken those words TOTALLY literally and they're saying that TJM is not going to be made because Craig Bartlett hinted that and blahblahblah.
And now I wonder...why do you have to be so negative? If Arnold has taught us something, it's to be POSITIVE and always look at the bright side ;D We can't get down just because Craig said 'if TJM is not made maybe it's better because fans can imagine their own ending'! >___
Settle Down about TJMAdditional Edit:Settle Down about TJM3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone, I have one thing to clarify. I shouldn't have to, but I feel I must.
I am not trying to discourage ANYONE. What you are about to read may be controversial. I am sorry if it sounds like I am discouraging anyone. I am not. Please, understand the other side of the issue.
This is in no way my trying to STOP anyone from fighting for TJM. I am saying SETTLE DOWN. Which does not mean "Stop". Settling down is calming down.
You are more than welcome to continue fighting for it. If you do, you can. If you don't, that's fine too.
But please, don't twist my words around and make it seem that this is my way of trying to stop anyone. It is not.
Whatever you do, as a fan, is your own choice.
I am simply raising the OTHER side of the issue. To keep everyone aware. What they choose to do, is still up to them.
THIS. IS. NOT. AN. ATTACK.
Thank you for your time, and I hope you come to further understand that I am in NO WAY shape or form trying to stop anyone. This is not my

SOPA is bad for deviantART & YouIf you spend any sort of time on the internet you may have heard about the SOPA bill being debated around Congress. SOPA, for those not in the know, stands for Stop Online Piracy Act, and in a nutshell it exists in the interest of making it easier for the holders of intellectual property (aka copyrighted materials) to get "theft" of their materials removed.SOPA is bad for deviantART & You3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sounds fair, at first, right? Well the problem lies not necessarily in the intent (protecting one's property) and more in how broad the bill is and how much power it gives law enforcement and the holders of intellectual property.
Again, simplifying things down beyond compare, SOPA would allow a company like Nintendo (who supports the bill) to come upon a site like deviantART and decide that it doesn't care for all of the images of its famed character Mario. So it might say "hey, you guys are harboring theft of our content" and would take quick and easy steps to literally shut us down. All because you uploaded an image of Mario. But
10 ARTIST TIPS from yours truly.10 DETAILED ARTIST TIPS - From my own view (related to deviantART):10 ARTIST TIPS from yours truly.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am too lazy to write a "long" version so I'll throw out tips from time to time. I have been asked for advice many times so here's some advice now! Follow my facebook to get more info!
1. Once you have a "very good" customer base, try putting into your commission agreement that you do not accept rushed ordered and can take as long as you'd like.
This is risky because you're not making promises to your commissioners. In order to "keep" my customer base, while still not putting pressure on myself, I "reward" patient commissioners by simply doing detailed coloring. The secret to having this agreement be successful is making your final drawing "worth the wait", however long that may be for you is your decision.
2. Time management & pricing. This is just something I do, I spent around 5-10 minutes roughing sketching a comm. I do not spend

On Art Schools + Art Style: A response to EndlingEndling posted this [click here] answer to a questioned by one of his followers on Tumblr.On Art Schools + Art Style: A response to Endling2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It pertains to how his art school and supporters treated/reacted to his particular art style in an academic and professional setting. Give that a read first then come back here.
I posted a response to it that I also wanted to share on my DeviantART. (If you're getting tired of me ranting about my experience at school, sorry, but this stuff means a LOT to me. I want to try to inform other people of what my time was like there so that if YOU go, you're all the wiser.) Response was as follows:
This is partially one of my problems with art schools at this point in time. They're ridiculously expensive, and because of the rapid change in art/media industry and culture, fall into generally one of these two categories:
1) They typically have instructors who are remnants of doing their bes
OMG TRACEI think it’s really disgusting when an artist with hundreds or thousands of followers decides to rally against some 12 year old that tried their best to copy their drawing and get some Facebook likes from other kids at their school. Like look at it. It’s on printer paper and has eraser marks everywhere and it’s just awful. They copied this from their phone during recess.OMG TRACE6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yeah okay tracing’s bad, teach them now, they gotta learn at some point, etc etc etc. But let them take that hit from their own upset following, when and IF they ever make it to that point. Let them learn when they let down the people who support them. Most won’t ever get to that point anyway.
Because attacking these dumb kids with your legions or making a huge event out of it just makes you an asshole. A public spectacle asshole that beats up slow kids and thinks WAY too highly of its work.
Look at him he’s got a fucking Cars poster. Are you really gonna be that guy? Are you going t
I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol. So the company saw my work and they told me to come in. I was reallyI will not be subjected to criminal abuse1 year ago in Personal More Like This
PSA on tracing and referencingHello everyone!! I just wanted to reiterate something that I do put on all of my deviations (or at least try to remember to)...PSA on tracing and referencing4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Please do not TRACE, OR HEAVILY REFERENCE MY ART!!! When I say this, it generally applies to using my art as bases or tracing it for adoptables or commissions. I am fine if you trace or reference my art for personal reasons, or practice... but when you use my art for profit , THAT IS NOT OK! Seriously!! I WILL call you out on it if I see it happening, and send you a note or comment on your deviation and request you remove the image, and if you do not comply I will report you.
I feel like this should be common sense, but it has happened to me more than a few times in the past month, and has happened to many other artists as well. Heres my general rule of thumb:
WHEN TRACING AND HEAVILY REFERENCE IS OK:
-Doing it for learning, WITHOUT POSTING IT ONLINE (unless if you have explicit permission from the artist), &crediting
Favorite Journal Entries that you may have missedHiya Ryceballs. You know, other than drawings and putting up polls about showers, there's one other thing that I love doing on Deviantart, and that is writing journals! I love writing stuff, sharing my thoughts, sharing stories, ranting about stuff, making fun of stuff, doing top 10s. And I have been told that people likes reading it, that definately puts a smile on my beautiful face. But but but but butt I do know that some of you are new to my Deviantart! And maybe some of you just missed some journals, in total I have over 400 journal entries so far so I wouldn't blame ya for missing them! SOOO I have decided to pick some journals of mine that I like and share it with you guys once again. This may be nostalgic for those who followed me since day 1, and something refreshing for those who has never read them before. I also do apologize for how bad the templates layouts for some of these are, some of these makes your eyes hurt after reading..

Digital artists and paypal discussion.Digital artists - Important issue on Paypal:Digital artists and paypal discussion.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, due to recent changes with Paypal which "does not protect digital artists", I think I will be contact Paypal via phone later this week to clarify things. Unfortunately, I really depend on Paypal so I most likely won't be changing companies for handling my finances with my art - there's not many options out there that I'm willing to trust.
If you have a question you want to be clarified with Paypal about digital art sales, please post them below.
I have a Paypal business account so I am unsure if this issue would effect me, but it seems to have really concerned a lot of "regular" paypal users.
