Question to cosplayersI've heard it so much before from many different people, but I want to know your honest opinions.Question to cosplayers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How do you feel about ANOTHER PERSON buying a cosplay instead of making it from scratch?
& vice versa?
I hope my opinion doesn't make you feel like you can't share yours. So, ignore mine and write your true opinion!
My opinion is: I DON'T GIVE A FLYING BUTTER KNIFE!
If someone wants to cosplay, but lacks the time, the money, the skills, etc. to make it... why should they be held back & not buy one?
If they love a character enough to cosplay it, spend money on it, then that's enough for me.
I would never judge a person or their love for the character they dress as based on whether they made a damn cosplay or bought it.
Sure, you can be happy & have a little pride in your outfit when you make it. That's great! I've made some of mine too, though I'm not entirely proud, I still made them! xD
But those that have to buy because of things in life that limit their ability to make o
Announcing The First Lit-Visual Alliance CONTEST!Announcing the first contest for theAnnouncing The First Lit-Visual Alliance CONTEST!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists.
So. In the spirit of thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I would try to do something about that. And so :iconlit-visual-alliance: was born.
As often as I hear literary artists complaining about lack of exposure, I hear visual artists complaining of a lack of inspiration and motivation to create art. And that, I must say, is simply nonsense. There is a massive amount of inspiration to be found on dA - and it's called th

Quick $15-Commissions for charity + StampEDITQuick $15-Commissions for charity + Stamp3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm pretty beat. I guess two batches is enough. Thanks to all those who commissioned. The money has been donated accordingly.
Since I'm on a break today, I'm thinking of raising funds to donate to the flood victims from the recent typhoon that hit the southern Philippines a couple of days ago.
Therefore, I'll be accepting $15 quick full-body commissions (colored). I say "quick" because I wouldn't be showing anymore WIP previews anymore. Just give me a ref picture and I'll draw it.
It will look kinda like this (but more refined):
I'll just be opening 5 slots in the meantime. So note me if you're interested.
Edit: Okay, since I received more notes than expected, I'll reply to the first five notes first. Then I'll reply to the second batch when I'm finished. Thanks so much for the commission!

KICKSTARTER, VERKAMI, INDIEGOGO....
This is an example of what I would like to do; Many of you have already read about it, and gave me your support. I'm telling it again.
I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING ON TO START A CROWDFUNDING
This is it. I want to start a crowdfunding project. I am looking for good printing and shipping prizes that offers me good quality. I'm waiting for an answer from a very cool guy I have meet who is going to help me.
I think that my crowdfunding project will be an artbook. But I don't want to stay just there. I mean, the most important thing is that I want to enjoy every page I fill. Every line I do and every color I choose.
If I don't feel I'm spending a good time doing this, I should not do it. And this kind of mentallity is what makes me want to do this. Spending a super good time, and have one of the better experiences in m

Friendbook - A Reference List (now on Tumblr)It seemed like a good idea at the time. :'DFriendbook - A Reference List (now on Tumblr)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Friendbook | NPCs | Regions
The friendbook images aren't the best quality--digital photos of my television screen, and its resolution is too much for the game's so they're kinda weird--but they should still be a step up from YouTube videos. And you'll find proper screenshots and fanart and stuff there, too.
Let me know if you want or need a better shot, or other angles of a character. Shots for regions, particularly communities, are still a work in progress. I make no promises on how soon I can get to them, but I shall do what I can, and I'll let you know when they're available. :3 (Right now, June 2013, I cannot get shots. I don't have access to the game. Hopefully it won't be long before I can again.)
£10 SketchSTATUS - OPEN£10 Sketch4 years ago in Personal More Like This
UDATE: COUPLE SKETCH COMMISSIONS
Couple sketches will cost £12 per character. This is due to the fact that interacting couples are more challenging to draw.
I'm sure you all know what these sketch commissions are, but just to elaborate, They're quick sketches of anything [mainly characters] with out a back ground. It's going to be in pencil form. Note that sketch commissions are purely just sketch, they are absolute and NOT MADE FOR REWORKING. So that means if you want me to fix certain areas, I can not do that because that defies the whole point of sketch commissions. That would come under normal commissions.
So make sure you provide good reference, I strongly suggest images over descriptions.
Here's how to send money via paypal. Just click the 'send money' tab on the top, and it should be straight forward from there. Remember to set it to GBP if paying internationally.

He is my best little buddy in the world and I just wanna squish his little squishy face alllllllll day long. He sits behind me while I work all day, so he's technically my assistant. And a great assistant he is, especially when he drips all over my pages.My best friend, Mr.Wicket2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Right now, I submit my Carciphona to 2 sites which pay their authors for bringing in traffic to their site, Tapastic and Mangamagazine. My ultimate goal is always to get readers to read my story on my own website of course, but I would like to see if branching out a little can pay off in a way that helps me focus on moving the story forward by paying me on a regular basis. If you want to support CP without having to spend any money on me, that is now possible by clicking the balloons below and visiting these sites! The more views my manga receives, the more I will be paid proportionately (: And of course as always, please share my story with your friends if you enjoyed it ^^
